Hi,

I'm thinking of selling my amp, I never use the features or the voicings, I thought I would get a HD500X Pod, but decided to go with standard pedals.

I bought it about 6 weeks ago, have the 2.0 Firmware also.

I probably turned it on for a total of 1 hour.

 

Thanks,

Steve

Well I wish I was in a position to buy it right now. I tried one at the local GC and it seemed like a pretty nice amp to me, but I didn't really have time to check it out completely. Maybe some day I'll buy one. So the DT25 isn't as useful without a POD? You can't use it's features, or just don't use them?

the DT amps are still VERY useful without a pod....

especially if you set them up to your liking via midi.

I personally prefer using it with a pod, because of all the capabilities....

but the DT amps are a totally solid, totally versatile standalone amp as well.

   I'll have to look into these amps in the next few months. Can't afford it right now, just bought a JTV-59 & a HD500X, & I'll be paying those 2 off for awhile. I have a tube amp I really like (Egnater Rebel-30), but there would be a lot of advantages using a DT amp with the interconnections to those two. I don't know in the long run whether I would use 1/10th of the capabilities that would give you or not, but it sure sounds like it could be pretty sweet. For the little bit of time I tried the one in the store, just as a standalone amp, without any connection to a POD, I thought it sounded pretty good.

Don't get me wrong I love how solid and great sounding this amp is,   I tried one a couple times at my GC and wanted one after that.

I just find myself not using all that it can do, I like the voicing that you can do.   I don't have a foot switch so I can't change channels remotely and I usually bypass the preamp so that I can go straight to the tubes.

 

I prefer the more analog sound,  I have been really listening to different recordings lately and am finding most of them are sterile, because  they are all processed and digital, not to my liking so much.

I am still thinking of selling it.  I have tried it out some more, and it is really capable, just not what I am needing right now.  And yes, it does have great sound.

Indeed. I'd use mine with pedals except I really enjoy the PODHD 500X. Great for the 2 cover bands I'm in.

The problem that I find with pedals, is that the preamp section does affect the sound because it is not a straight shot to the tubes.  So I feel that something is lost in there, and I can use the return loop of the fx to do that, but it still seems to me that some of the warmth is missing.  I think the sounds are great though, just something missing.

 

Thanks,

Steve

Just so you know, with any 15% off coupon at GC, someone can get that amp brand new for $850. You may want to come down a bit on your price to get some bites.

Good, point ,  problem is, that it is brand new, I have turned it on maybe 6 times.   But I had it on auction starting at $725, no bids, I'll reset the auction over there.  Maybe people will bid.

 

 

Thanks,

Steve

Good Luck man... don't envy your situation, but i doubt you'll get anywhere close to "new" prices if you aren't an authorized reseller etc... no matter how new it is.

as they say... depreciation happens the minute you drive it off the lot...

you should probably be aiming for higher used prices (check ebays sold items) rather than lower new prices...

anyway not trying to bust down on you cause it sucks... but with your current strategy you're going to have it for a while.. so you may as well use it. :)

I thought that was a good used price for it, can't find any used for $700 I don't think.  I could be wrong, but I guess we'll see.  Thanks.

a quick look shows that you're not that far off... sorry it just seemed from the conversation that you were basing it off new prices...

 

might try putting what you really want on it say 750$ with the best offer option.... say maybe take the first 650$ you get...

but obviously thats for you to decide... again, good luck.

Oh ok, good idea.  Thanks, if it doesn't sell, I'll use it until I can get something else.  May as well.

Bear in mind also, that GC has free shipping, so that's $850 total brand new, with warranty (+ taxes in some states).

 $575???

 

wow, just checked yer sale link... Bite the bullet and dig into it.  Read the manual and watch some videos.  I guarantee you will find tones you didn't think possible from this amp.  Even with your pedals, it will perform well.  Downoad one of the DT Edit programs and really try out the various amp models. You can load 8 different models between the A and B channels and the 4 voicings...  I hate to see you take a beating on this when you haven't really given it a chance...

I may just do that. I did get a Marshall and was going to use the money to buy a cab. But I am getting a real beating at that price.

Can you tell me where in Texas you are located? I might be interested in your amp if we can agree on a fair price.

 

Thanks...
