Newb question about DT25 and HD500x

Recommended Posts

I am thinking about getting back into the gigging business, playing around with people and doing a few shows here and there. Is the dt25 for me? Also right now i have a Marshall JCM900 i think i am going to sale it in order to fund my dt25 venture. Thoughts? Also combo vs head. 

 

My thought are i can get the combo which is cheaper currently and add another cabinet if i need to. I was thinking about keep my Marshall 4x12 for this purpose. Is the DT25 a) going to be loud enough or should i go with the head?

I would suggest you you tube some of the demos of the DT25. It's a great amp but so are most JCM900's I've heard. The main advatage of the DT would be it's more flexable. But do you need that flexability?

 

No one can really answer if it's the right amp for you but you. But I can say the 25 is loud enough for most veneues. Anywhere inside and most outdoor events. If you are playing a huge stage it might not be enough but by that time if you are using a 100 watt head you are mic' them too.

None of the shops near me have any. Here is another question i have found a dt50 for 650. Seems like a really good deal. Any advatages of the dt25 over the dt50 other than weight? I might pick up the used dt50. Oh and i am always looking for versatility but really i am looking for something that my hd500x will hook up with the best and sound the best.

Power....The DT50 does Fender spank tone better than the DT25....But that is to be expected as you need power to do a twin tone with the right dynamics...DT25 doesn't do that very well at gig volume....DT50 does....I have both amps...rehearse with the DT25, gig with the DT50....DT25 is underpowered playing alongside a real drum kit...At least it is for me...
