DT 50 emulating Marshall? in DT50 / DT25 Posted December 30, 2015 Straight out of the box, maybe not quite. The "Marshall" emulation is actually a little lower gain that you might want for that particular sound. However, if you have some low level midi skills you can unlock some of the higher gain amps that are in the amp and that alone should do it. Add a POD HD and you definitely can. With Helix coming out used POD prices are coming down. You don't need a an "X" pod unless you use a LOT of effects or dual amps (things you probably don't need to capture Slash's sound) so that makes it even cheaper. The DT amps all take pedals well and have an effects loop so there's that also. My advice is keep an eye on Craigslist. I think you can get a DT50 or 25 pretty cheap if you're patient.
