With the sounds shaped by the head and emanating from the cabinet's four speakers, the only question you'll have about the Marshall DSL 100H head and JCM 1960A cabinet is whether the two are a match made in heaven or somewhere else.
Bite From the Beginning
The DSL 100H is a two-channel amp, but you won't find a dedicated clean channel here -- instead, the choices are Classic Gain and Ultra Gain. The Classic Gain channel features a clean/crunch switch so you can still get pristine clean tones. Engaging the crunch mode will instantly break up the amp's sound with warm overdrive for sparkling blues rock sounds.
The Ultra Gain channel also features two modes: lead 1 and lead 2. On lead 1, the amp rings with enough saturated gain to cover all the bases from classic rock to metal. Truly sadistic guitar fiends will find what they're looking for in the heavily distorted lead 2 mode.
Fine-Tune Your Distortion
The gain-shaping options on the DSL 100H don't end with the two channels and their internal modes. On either channel, you'll also have the tone shift button available -- press it and you'll instantly get a scooped-mid sound ideal for metal riffs. The Ultra Gain channel offers even more flexibility with the resonance control. This knob helps add depth to your low-end attack, without causing it to sound muddy.
The Perfect Complementary Cabinet
Far more than an accessory, the JCM 1960A cabinet has held up many different heads for players who prefer its sound. Marshall designed this cabinet to sync with its own heads, however, and that's why they've loaded it with four 12" Celestion G12T-75 speakers. These speakers are built for high-gain amps, and made to handle booming low end and strong midrange frequencies.
