Marshall DSL100HR Guitar Amplifier Head

The DSL amps are laden with Marshall tone, features and functionality for the novice, as well as pros performing on the world's biggest stages. The DSL series includes the following features:

Adjustable Power Output:

The DSL models feature adjustable power settings, which delivers all-valve tone & feel, at any volume, from bedroom to stage. The technology adjusts power to the valves, instead of just turning off valve stages, allowing the amp to remain articulate, & dynamic.

EQ Refinements:

Some innovative tweaks to the EQ circuitry have given the DSLs even greater tonal flexibility. The EQ section of the DSLs can deliver exactly what your ears are looking for.

Emulated Output:

Our partnership with Softube(R) has led to the creation of award-winning plug-ins, as well as exceptional tone in our CODE digital amps. The same team is responsible for the development of the emulated output feature, found in the DSL series. Both the headphone out, and line out on the DSL models boast incredibly accurate emulation of our famed 1960 cabinet.

Reverb, Resonance, & Master Volume:

The DSL is now more versatile than ever, with features including discrete master volume controls for each channel, built-in reverb and resonance controls (the DSL1 & DSL5 do not offer resonance controls).

Features:

- Gain and Volume Per Channel
- Dedicated Resonance Control
- High and Low Power Settings
- Reverb
- 2 Separate Master Volume Controls
- Softube(R) Emulated Output
- 4 X ECC83 and 4 X EL34 Valves
- 2-button footswitch included

Overall: First off, let me state that I predominantly play hard rock and metal. That being said, prior to purchasing the DSL100HR my main amp was a Laney Ironheart 60H. I had a JCM900 2100 years ago, and I've been itching to pick up another Marshall. I was having trouble deciding until the DSL100HR was introduced with the dual master volumes. From the moment I plugged in the amp and messed with the settings, I realized how broad a spectrum this amp could cover. The Classic Gain channel has cleans and nice crunch covered, and the Ultra Gain has harder hitting gain and high gain covered with the OD1 and OD2 settings. OD2 can get a little "fizzy," but that can be corrected with the right balance of the Ultra Gain volume and gain controls. As far as the EQ goes; it's not quite as sensitive as I would like; however, this amp has plenty of bottom end grunt. It is night and day from my Laney (I may have to explore new tubes for that one). The presence and resonance controls are fairly typical of most tube amps. They can either tighten or loosen the sound as well as taming or enhancing the highs. I'm not really sure I've gotten the EQ dialed in enough to use the mid-cut switch yet, but I'm sure the more I play with the controls, I'll be able to utilize the feature. Overall, this is a great head with your typical Marshall tones, but it also offers more dimension than a standard "two channel" amp. With the clean/crunch and OD1/OD2, this amp functions almost as a four channel. Great amp, and I'm very happy with the purchase.

Overall: As I own both a Marshall JCM 900 4100 Series head dating from the early 1990's along with a Mesa Mark V 90 head, this is one of the most exciting purchases I've made...in years (although, I've purchased a massive amount of gear over the past decade, mainly being guitars, and the occasional pedal). Firstly, this head...is mammoth, and has a weight that is convincing of high caliber build quality. I just couldn't believe it when I opened the box and visibly knew this amp would go down (in my history) as one of the best purchases I've made...seriously. It's a visually sleek, and stunning kinda amp, as all the black, gold, and brass colors blend for an eye-appealing take (the back panel area/housing/inputs just look absolutely killer). As well, as other buyers have pointed out, this is a chassis-mounted set of tubes (both preamp and power), and the transformers are solid.Secondly, and, this is something I immediately begin judging a product in this category with, which is the quality of the potentiometers, and their movement. All the pots, obviously, are high quality, as they all turn "tigthly" (and evenly with all pots, of note) and do not have that cheap impression or feel.Thirdly, I'm totally diggin' the tone(s). The 1st mode of Channel 1 is super, super clean/crisp. As such, seemingly, it's the perfect platform for an absolute wide range of pedals (whether boost, low, mid, or high gain, for instance), as well as getting dynamic and utlizing your volume and tone controls. The 2nd mode of Channel 2, equally, has the same potential, but it's a bit more pushed (kinda touchin' on Plexi territory a bit), and you can get that clean "sizzle" we're all kinda lookin' for that only a true Plexi delivers. Channel 2...well, is just killer. This is where the harmonic content begins to seriously come through/become audible..there's a cleanliness to Mode 1 that has you utilizing the EQ section in various settings (meaning, it is possible to get an array of varying quality tones due to its cleanliness and harmonic content). And, in Mode 1 Channel 2, once again, another opportunity to add an array of pedals, and be satisfied. As for Mode 2, ..I absolutely love it. Once you find the sweet spot between the Master Volume and gain/etc, ..you're hooked (super responsive and chewy, where Mode 1 tends to have that tight tracking kinda feel with harmonics). HOWEVER, ..read below as to the "Tone Shift" option (you'll dig it).Fourth(ly), both the "Resonance" and "Presence" controls are highly..highly useful on this amp (in fact, I've dialed in some tones using mainly the Bass and Resonance controls in Channel 2, and am getting gorgeous tones (whether with the majority of my guitars, which are ESP/EMG loaded, or, with a handful of my passive ESP's or Gibsons)...just a beautiful combination between the two controls.The "Tone Shift" button.........hhhoooo-ly. It's just killer (super, super useful in Channel 2, Mode 2, as, when engaged, it gives this Mode a sense of tighter tracking and focus/once you've, again, gotten it dialed in/etc). I love it..seriously And, it's just like any other circuit, when you're amidst dialin' it in/your quest for the tone you're seeking, I find it highly useful, as it can be multi-function (such as when using pedals, or, tracking during rehearsal/getting the proper mix across the instruments/etc, or just the "feel" in your hands). Mode 2 is excellent for pedals such as a KHDK or Horizon Devices unit(s). Also, the "Tone Shift" is great in Channel 1, Mode 2 (once you start dialin', you'll get my drift).As for the assessment of the switching/footswitch...yeah, there's a bit of a momentary delay (as I have read other reviews/slight complaints about this), but it's really not something to get concerned about. It is slight and nearly unnoticeable when switching between channels/etc.I'm happy I've added this Marshall to my mound of gear, no doubt, ha.
Style of Music: Metal....metal, and more metal.
