I've never played a DC5 but heard good things about them.
I love my Lonestar it is a great amp and a perfect gigging machine!
Enough headroom to soar over 2 drummers, keys, another guitar, and a bassist but sounds so sweet playing at low levels while I rehearse!!!
The drive channel is as tasty as you can get for 6L6s and the preamp overdrive is remarkable musical!
Add in tube rectification and Tweed power (built in variac) and I'm in heaven with the tone!
