    HD500X user considering DT50 212 / FRFR

    No problems - I originally got the jbls for use with the v drums only and I've ended up using them for a total mix of v drums, bass, guitar (via pods) and vocals when jamming with friends. In relation to trying to get a tone setup with my pod Im trying the jbls on their own with the pod but I'm still not feeling it!
  2. Hey all, So I'll try to keep this short! Have been lurking the forums and doing a lot of reading, but can't quite find the answer to my question so I figured I would ask you guys for your honest opinions! Recently had a JCM 2000 DSL stack with a 1960 classic 4 x 12 box (Green back speakers). I LOVED this thing but it was just overkill and hardly getting used. I replaced it with a POD HD500X and I have a good friend who loves his and has been kind enough to send me some killer tones to play with... Now my problem is this - Obviously I loved my Marshall, and I'm now running the HD500X through 2 x JBL EON 15 G2 speakers (I also run a V-Drums setup through them). With the V-Drums, they're fat and perfect with the kits I have setup. With the POD, I just feel like I am missing that body and warmth that the Marshall had. I loved how it had this really big, fat, chunky warm sound... While the POD has so much flexibility and potential, I just can't stop missing my tube amp.. Which has led me here... I have an opportunity to get a DT50 212 combo for a great price (1100 Australian refurb stock - Has some minor nicks in the tolex and has had the transformer replaced, and comes with 12 months Warranty. What I really want to know is will this setup give me back the feel of my Marshall with the flexibility of the POD? I think the POD is so flexible and do not want to get rid of it... But on the flip side of this, if I already have the JBL EON speakers, am I better off getting something like a tube pedal in between the POD and the speakers to achieve the same effect as the DT50? Obviously if I can save myself $1100 and spend it on other gear I would like to, but if I'm going to be longing for something that is unachievable with what I have, I'd rather take the plunge! Cheers!
