  1. 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!

    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!
