    From what I understand, he told James what he wanted, and James made component changes until he got what he wanted. The lead channel on the 5150 is thicker than the lead on the 5150II though, for anyone that doesn't know the difference. Heck, I didn't know until a few weeks ago.

    Yeah, from what I remember they became popular when us metal heads could pick them up on the cheap and they had more gain than any other head on the planet at the time. I remember when I was selling them in sam ash and no one really took them seriously. Everyone still was about the marshall TSL and DSL.

    Too funny, by the time I really got into music everyone was shitting all over the TSL/DSL there was a big fan club of people with Dual Reverb JCM 900s that did tube swaps and used some pretty intensive graphic EQs, but yeah those JCM 2000s eeeek. I'm sure Marshall would love to forget those haha.

    Thats true the 5150 has more bass and low mids compared to the 5152. I like both but prefer the 5152 since the bass is tighter and the voicing is smoother. The original 5150 has more of an angry grind to it which is cool too. A mixture of the best qualities of both would be awesome , maybe the Invective is it !

    Everyday musicians friend moves my expected ship date out another day. Now at 9/26 expected ship date. Anyone else seeing the same thing? Guitar Centers site still shows 9/18.

    which is odd because they reissued the DSL. I had a DSL and TSL. They were my first tube amps. Cant say they were anything special. But they beat the peavey wiggy that's for sure.

    The DSL was actually pretty good. One of Marshalls' best selling amps, which is why they did the reissue.
    The TSL was soooooooo bad. One of the worst tube amps I've played. Sounds like they took the Marshall 8100 and took out all the aggression.

    DSL are great amps. I had one in the early 2000's and it sounded great. Not really a direct competitor to the 5150 range though.

    Definitely more versatile than a 5150, though. a DSL can get fairly brutal, especially with a boost.

    I was told by a buddy that had one that the JCM 2000 DSL is the one to have. His was loaded with Gold Lion KT77's and was pretty nasty. They were playing drop G on Les Pauls and had a nice grind to it and good clarity.

    I just called Sweetwater and spoke with my sales rep!
    I had mine pre-ordered days after NAMM early this year!

    They have tracking information from Peavey for trucks containing the Heads and more cabs
    what appears like enough to fill most of the backorders! Coming in by the end of the month!

    I noticed on one of the recently posted Sweetwater demos on the back of the head written in black marker was \\V3// I wonder if possibly there were issues with a faulty tube socket in that position or this was simply Version 3 ?

    4:35 is the exact time!

    I spoke to guitar center Thursday, I was told they expect to get "a status update" from Peavey on 9/18. When I asked for clarification, the rep made it sound like 9/18 would not be the day they were receiving the amps.

    This is encouraging, hoping it is the same for "other retailers".

    Sweetwater's showing the price of the head as $1899. Wasn't it $1799? Maybe it went up like the cab did?

    Since we're pretty close to xmas, how are the Sweetwater xmas deals? Worth waiting around for a couple hundred off of this?

    Nah the price on the head was always 1899, in fact if you watch the NAMM video I'm pretty sure I mention the price there as well!

    Ok cool. Guess I just had 1800 on the brain. No worries at all.

    @bulb You guys doing a meet and greet or clinic on the tour (Tempe, AZ) with AAL? If so, would you autograph my Invective? (Assuming it's here by then?)

    Pretty notoriously good. I'm not sure this will be marked down, but they'll match competitor coupons and markdowns as long as they're an authorized dealer. Usually if you call and say you have a 15% off coupon for GC (very common) I've had that price matched without question most of the time.
