    My least favorite is very easy, it's the Dark Terror. I actually traded that for a Marshall DSL20HR a few days ago because I couldn't get it to sound good to save my life. In this particular video my favorites were probably the JMP-1 (nice mids and chunk), Dual Terror (nice mids and full-ness) and the Mark V 35 (great character overall). But honestly I love all the amps for different reasons. Had I used a different guitar or song my favorite amps would have been different.

    Honestly, I wonder if YOUR Dark terror may have a slight tube issue. I mean, it sounds A LOT more different than the other Terrors than I would expect without you diming some settings totally differently.

    Also -have you ever tried the Marshall SV20H? I was crazy impressed with it.

    Nah, the Dark Terror is a unique-sounding amp. Much more aggressive and fizzy than the other terrors, it's cutting and sludgey at the same time. His demos sound like my Dark Terror.

    There's something about the open low E during the rising-on-the-A-string section that just bothers me on almost all of the amps. The Ironball was a notable exception, and it was probably because it just didn't have quite enough low-end definition to keep it super tight like the rest. Maybe it was the tuning, but something about that section of the riff was distracting. I'd have to go listen a third time to pick out which one or two mushed the notes together a little bit too.

    I really liked the full-size Recto, and I really liked the JCM2000. Again, thanks for putting it together. Very cool idea.

    The amp worked fine and I'm not sure if a bad tube can really have a big impact on the frequency response. I think it was just how the amp was voiced and the shape control just didn't cut it for me.

    I think I know what you mean. It's probably a combination of the pickups or the bridge or something. It came out a little 'quacky'. I'm going to put a crunch lab in the bridge position one day. The current ones will do fine until then.

    I'm thinking about my next video but it's hard to choose. I was thinking one of the following things:

    -Marshall DSL20HR vs DSL50 JCM2000
    -Marshall JMP-1 (in-depth) demo
    -Marshall JMP-1 vs Axe Fx III, Amplitube and ....

    Which of these would you guys like to see? Any other ideas? I can't please everyone but I definitely always try to keep suggestions in mind. Of course I'm going to do in-depth demo's for all my amps just like I did with the Dual Rectifier and Grandmeister Deluxe 40. I also want to do some comparisons that feature my DSL20HR, Ironball and Grandmeister. Enough ideas for years basically haha! And I'm currently suffering bad gas for a JVM410H. Help!

    Do the DSL comparison. I’d like to hear them dialed in exactly the same way, including master, with your subjective judgment on how the relative volumes compare. Also what it takes, in your opinion, to dial them each in to sound their best.

    I'll definitely be doing that one soon...
