The next generation of the Marshall DSL series amps are laden with Marshall tone, features and functionality for the novice, as well as pros performing on the world's biggest stages. The new DSL models feature adjustable power settings, which delivers all-valve tone and feel, at any volume, from bedroom to stage. The new technology adjusts power to the valves, instead of just turning off valve stages, allowing the amp to remain articulate and dynamic.

The DSL is now more versatile than ever, with features including discrete master volume controls for each channel, built-in reverb and resonance controls. This Classic version of Marshall's DSL40 CR features vintage large check grillcloth with vintage block Marshall logo.


Using the reverb, FX loop, tone shift controls and two footswitchable gain channels you can create a style that suits you and another to release your alter ego.

The DSL40 has five speaker outputs giving you plenty of flexibility and the ability to record, with a standby function for silent recording as well. It can be taken from the bedroom, to the studio and onto a gig.

The amp's features can be controlled using any MIDI equipment, so for those technical players you can play this amp and different MIDI equipment at any one time.

The DSL40 has two master volumes for those loud solo moments.

Power can be reduced from 40w to 20w without affecting the quality meaning the DSL40 can be used in multiple environments with confidence.

Sounds exactly like a Marshall should. I rarely use the high-octane lead channel so I can't comment on it much, but the classic gain sounds great. Good, ballsy rock n' roll amp. If your guitar has great volume and tone pots (and you use them) it's really responsive. One of the solders finally came loose after a few years, but aside from that I've had no issues. (note: I have it on casters and should have had it serviced before the incident anyways) Long story short - take care of her, and she won't let ya down.
