Rating and Reviews: Marshall DSL5C

Immense Marshall DSL tone blasts from this compact combo amp. At 5 watts, you can get classic Marshall overdrive at a reasonable volume (and price).

Overall: I mean what can I say it's a Marshall tube amp, it has awesome clean to awesome dirty and the ten-thirty celestion speaker is beyond words. If you think this won't put out the volume because it's 5watts think again even if you drop it down to 1watt it still cranks, I dig the fact it came with the foot switch to go from classic to ultra gain so no messing around at the amp when your playing, my only con with the amp is it wasnt made in G.B., 5 bills U.S. is pretty steep for being made in south east asia.

Overall: This thing is great. There's only one thing that could make this amp better. If the "tone shift" was foot switchable , then you could use as a mid boost and there's a slight increase in volume when it's deactivated.Zzounds customer service is also top shelf

Two channels of Marshall tonewith high and low power switching... Long live rock....35 lbs efx loop speaker out. Gig, record and practice at home ....the Mighty mini Marshall! Thank You.

Overall: Great amp for ROCK !!!! 5W/1W (0.25W) yields great tone at lower (apartment level) or much higher output levels. LOVE the efx loop and speaker/ emulated or headphone jacks and thevfootswitch for channels, but I miss the separate EQ for classic clean channel And master volume would be nice also, but at 35 lbs the diversity of goal character is unrivalled. Killer amp, great tone & portability. At 1W I can practice in my apt And at 5W it will easily drive a 212 cab!

Overall: This is a great amplifier. I have been practicing daily with my Fender Squier Jagmaster with w/Seymour Duncan HBs. Marshalls just have great versatility & this bad boy can even excel in an apartment or bedroom due to the 5 watt/ .25 watt button on its back panel. No reason to think I can't gig with it. Both channels deliver Marshall tone and it rocks through the 10"- 30 watt Celestion. Kinda pricey but real all tube tone at diminished volume is perfect. Pop, Rock or Metallica, this amp delivers classic the searing tones. Marshall is still King!
