    I'm considering selling this head because it just does not cut it with my 7 string in drop G#. I've been really intrigued with the axe-fx lately. And running it through my orange would be a dream. What type of power-amp would i need to get with it?

    But to my main question haha, how much do you think i would get from that Marshall?

    I can't see a DSL head not working for metal - they are known for being one of the best Marshalls capable of metal. If you haven't, try it with a boost or OD pedal. It will tighten it up. If you don't like that, it just mustn't be your type of tone.

    As for resale value, if it is in great condition, take off 1/3 of the new selling price in Canada.

    As for a poweramp, a Mesa 50/50 or Engl E850 will work well with the Axe FX.

    It's worthless. Ship it to me for scrap.



    KIDDING!

    Personally, I wouldn't give up on the Marshall. But, if you want to get rid of it, take NatG's advice.

    You're looking at getting $500-$600 for the head in the US
