The critically acclaimed DSL40C shares most of the same great features as the DSL100H: footswitchable classic/ultra gain channels, rear panel pentode/triode switch (40 Watt down to 20 Watt) and a rear panel series FX loop. Unlike the JCM2000 DSL amps, the DSL40C features footswitchable digital reverb channel change and reverb on/off footswitch is supplied. The popularity of the DSL40C lies in its feature-packed capability, versatility, its volume-to-size ratio, and its value for money. The DSL40C is ultra portable, ultra loud, and is a keen reminder of Marshall's legacy The DSL40C is loaded with a single 12 40 Watt Celestion Seventy 80 speaker.

The only issue I've had with this amp is the lack of bottom end and lousy reverb. The easy solution however is running an mfx pedal with EQ in the effects loop for the extra bass and that works great. It's well built, very sturdy but getting pretty expensive. I paid $699 a couple years ago. That Canadian dollar :(

I was looking to downsize from big amps and settled on this combo to save my back. The reverb isn't great and it sounds a little brittle in the gain channel. Its like a lower wattage JCM 2000 without all the power.I changed the speaker like another reviewer here to a Celestion Vintage 30 and it sounds fatter and warmer. Great idea! I tried the Slash combo too, just not as much gain but it oddly had the V30 speaker too. Slash was onto something. Had the DSL 40 for weeks now and can't be happier. Its quiet enough for home yet powerful enough to play in a band.

I purchased this amp in winnipeg and I love it! Definetly my favourite combo amp that I've played. I jut wish it had a little bit better reverb setting... It's not bad but I've had better reverb built in on other amps

I wanted something portable, yet not heavy and loud like a head and cab, and quiet enough for practice with its half power switch. I tried the DSL15 first as its even smaller but not very Marshall sounding so I upgraded to this one. Good price tooassembled in Vietnam without spending an arm and a leg on one of the British made combos in Marshall's top line.Just wish the reverb was better.

Excellent amp. Versatile from clean to heavy gain. Reverb is a little weak but I use pedals anyways. Having an FX loop is a must (IMO) and this has it but the 15w Combo does not.

After giving up big amps with cabs and all that volume but still loving Marshall more than any other amp tone, I settled on this combo. Although the reverb is not great, the overall tone with EL34s and an upgraded Celestion V30 speaker has perhaps given me the best amp I have ever owned. The half power switch is a blessing in a condo.I have had JCM 800s, Valvestate combo, Peavey 5150s, Line 6, Fender Deluxe and Super Reverbs and 1974 Marshall Plexis and this amp measures up amazingly well for gain and overall tone, just not so good for pristine Fender clean.

I paid almost twice that to get a DSL50 head about 15 years ago. Sure, that one was built in the UK and this is built in Vietnam though. Will it last as long? Time will tell. For years I've been wanting the tone of my old DSL50 (stolen a few years ago) in combo form for smaller gigs. They delivered! And they fixed the "Deep" switch that gave you an option between too much and too little, now it's a Resonance control. And the included footswitch now controls reverb too (but dear lord is it subtle). Either way, got this for 699$, playing a Gibson SGJ into it. Fully giggable rig, Gibson/Marshall classic tone, for less than 1300$ total. Love it.

A very versatile amp with some monster tube amp tones. The only thing it really lacks is the ability to footswitch inside of the two channels (between clean/crunch and lead1/lead 2). The Celestion 70/80 speaker is OK, swap it out for a V30 if you really want to upgrade the tone. All in all a great amp that can be used for gigging.
