Dt25 Vs Dt50 212

Recommended Posts

Searched around this forum, but haven't really seen too many topics that address this question.

 

I'm currently using a DT25 with an HD500 and a JTV-89F.  Love this combination of equipment.

 

However, I'm wondering if I'd gain anything sound-wise by upgrading the DT25 to a DT50 212?  Would love to hear from folks that have made this upgrade.  IF I could sell the DT25, I'd be out $700-$800 after purchasing the 50, so wondering if it's worth the extra cash.

 

Thanks

Jay

not worth it in my opinion.  What DT25 do you have?  I have the head and can easily power 2 2X12 cabs, should be more than enough especially if you mike it or send a feed to the PA.  You may gain a little clean headroom at volume but is that worth $700-800?  Even with the combo you can still add another cab and grow your sound...

I started with the DT50 2x12 so have no judgement on the DT 25. I love my rig and with the last firmware update I love it even more. No complaints and have always been able to achieve any sound I've set out for. One of my favorite Models is a less heard of one. I love the Divided by 13 model. A shame u don't see it mentioned much. But having a full dream rig already you know this.

I have a DT25 head/cab and a DT50 112....Overall, the DT50 is a better sounding amp to me...Better feeling too...

 

It's the clean tones that suffer on a DT25 when you compare it directly to a dt50....If you like Fender spank, the DT25 falls short because it is way under powered for that...Even the DT50 is under powered...But the EL34s are a little better than EL84s when trying to mimic what's really a 6L6...
