"Marshall 1 watt head"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
The 1-watt Marshall DSL head with reverb is a great sounding little amp. Do not let it's size fool you. It sounds best so far through a Marshall 4x12 with Greenbacks and Vintage 30s. The head gets very loud for 1 watt, even switching to low power is kind of loud. The headphones sound great too. Channel one is the clean channel, it does not have a gain pot, only a single volume pot. The cleans are pretty crisp. The clean channel does dirty-up nicely. The real prize with this amp is channel 2, red channel. Great Marshall tone for classic/hard rock! For the price, you really can't beat it for a nice practice/studio amp.

"Rock monster"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Don’t let the size fool you this is a beast. The clean is clean but as you turn it up you get blues then a bit of crunch. Hit the footswitch and welcome to Rock and Metal zone especially when using a TubeScreamer to boost it. I must say I am impressed. I now am one step closer to the exact tone I am wanting I just might find it if I play with this amp long enough. It isn’t too loud to upset the wife so definitely points for that. I look forward to many nights of playing and hopefully getting better and not hurting the dogs ears. Thanks Marshall good job on this one.

"Git Yer Marshall Mojo On"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Genuine Marshall sound with that killah tube tone you know by ear. Originally had the combo but returned it when it became obvious the stock speaker would have to be upgraded. No thanks, I already have cabs galore ( I really wanted a combo,but oh well). The DSLHR @ 1 watt gets pretty darn loud folks! It is amazing ran thru a Celestion 10" mic'd cab, with a Stratocaster up front. Also amazing is that it drives a 2-12" w Celestions and a stereo 4-10" cab with Celestions and sounds like Marshall Heaven all night long. It's a Hella amp at a sweet price and zZounds had it here in 2 days!

"Absolutely Brilliant! My Favorite Amp Ever!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I can't say enough about this Marshall Amp. It is everything you will love and more. I have played amps that cost ten times as much that aren't nearly as good. It is really fun to play through. I swear I smile every time I use it!
Sound
The sound is incredible. Everything you want out of a Marshall! Dirty, Bluesy, and it rocks!
Features
The switch is very handy although the dirty channel is why you use it.
Ease of Use
Incredibly easy.
Quality
Perfect, just perfect.
Value
It is easily worth five times more.
The Wow Factor
It is a Marshall. It rocks a Les Paul - My R8 just sounds perfect.

"Hard to believe it’s only 1 watt"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I bought this to use as a bedroom amp plugged into a 112 cabinet and I fell in love with it. I recently modified a Marshall MX 212 cabinet with new speakers to match this head (you only get 16 ohms to play with) and it really opened up. By itself the clean channel is very clean and the gain channel wide open is even better. Don’t let the 1 watt fool you it gets loud enough I can hear myself with a drummer in my basement. I wouldn’t hesitate to use this rig live miced through the PA. And the price tag really makes it a no brainer. If you’re on the fence for a low wattage head this one won’t disappoint, for sure.

"Marshall DSL1HR"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I bought it for the Ultra Channel and it sounds great. It has that Marshall growl that I was looking for and I don't scare the neighbors goats when I play. Well at least they don't complain.

"Marshall Tube Tone W/Effects Loop"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
The initial reaction to this amp was not very positive as it is more of a one-trick pony when compared to a similarly priced Katana head. This amp provides tube cleans and Marshall crunch/drive with that Marshall sound, only downer is the shared EQ between both channels, but hey at this price, it's no deal-breaker. The effects loop takes it up a notch,option-wise,when compared to our Blackstar 1HR, but we like the Blackstar's sound better overall. Upgrading the tubes is essential so expect to add that cost to your purchase. Overall, for the $$, a Katana head blows it away, but the one thing this Marshall does better is providing the magic of glowing tubes. Get the proper pedals in front of the amp, the rest ran through the effects loop, and a Les Paul will be hard to put down...it's fun. The reverb is better on the Blackstar,so turn it off and use the effects loop on the DSL1HR.
