Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I’ve owned just about every amp out there. From major manufacturers to custom point to point. Mostly Tube Amps. This has got to be the sweetest little amp I’ve owned. Very glad I chose this! Bell like clean. Killer gain to suit. Les Paul Player. Quality Build and Handsome! No Remorse Here. Love it!!! As always, You can’t do better or get better Service than zZounds.. Happy Customer!

"Best Amp Ever! Nothing beats a cranked Marshall !!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This is absolutely the greatest amp I've ever played so far! I was on the fence between this and Fender Blues Junior Tweed and a Fender Bassbreaker 15 and this combo won and I have no regret. It pairs so well with my 58' Les Paul. I can get that sweet Gary Moore blues tone all the way up to some aggressive Jimmy Page early Zeppelin with a little more drive of course. And did I mention that this thing is loud. It'll rattle the walls and ceiling. And best of all it's got the power and saturation I need sound wise. Clocking in a 36lbs and being compact it sure won me over its big brother the DSL40CR which is nearly 52lbs yikes and way more bulkier. My back has already started thanking me loll.... Do yourself a favor and buy this amp and pair it with your favorite les paul. As far as the speaker goes, some might rag on it but it sounds great to me. Maybe it's my guitar. But my sound I'm overly satisfied with. Trust me. There is no better feeling in the world !

"Almost the perfect small amp"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
The first amp arrived with an annoying background hiss. From what I’ve read, this is a common problem with early production models. I returned the amp and promptly received its replacement, which also had the same hiss. I contemplated keeping the amp despite the noise, but ultimately decided that I couldn’t justify paying good money for a faulty amp. The tone was what almost made me keep the amp. The deciding factor was the Celestion Seventy 80 speaker. You don’t realize how much it holds back the amp until you hear it with a quality speaker. I tried a Celestion Greenback and a WGS Green Beret and the difference was remarkable. For the cost of the DSL20CR plus a much needed speaker upgrade, you can buy the DSL40CR, which has more features and does come with a decent speaker. I really wanted to love the 20CR but it’s more feature-rich and powerful sibling won out. I ended up returning the second amp and am eagerly awaiting my new DSL40CR.

"DSL 20 competes with the best!!!!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Just a great sounding amp!!! for 599 you can’t beat it !!!sounds like a much more expensive amp and 20 W is plenty!! clean channels a little weak definitely need a better speaker to get more bottom end but overall it’s a keeper and you can’t beat that tone in the low wattage mode cranked about 3/4 of the way!!!!wowser pull the trigger on this one you’ll be glad you did!!!!

"Nice Marshall growl"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Nice amp for home recording. Has a nice mid-range heavy Marshall tone. The clean or "classic gain" channel is great for pedals. It seems to really love the Fulltone OCD and Bug Muff. One thing to note is that this amp does lack some bottom end. I ran it through a 4x10 extension cab as a test and that fully resolved the issue. I live in an apartment so having a really bottom heavy sound usually means a noise complaint. For recording, especially late at night, the lack of bottom end is an advantage rather than a problem for me. Ext cab or the 40 watt version is the solution if this is a major issue for you. Overall it sounds great, it records extremely well and the green channel is really a pedal machine.
