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.

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

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

The DSL is now more versatile than ever, with new features including discrete master volume controls for each channel, built-in reverb and resonance controls.

Features:

• Gain and volume per channel
• Dedicated resonance control
• High and low power settings
• Reverb
• Now with Celestion V type speaker
• 2 separate master volume controls
• Softube emulated output
• 4 x ECC83 and 2 X EL34 valves
• Dimensions (W x H x D): 620 x 490 x 252mm
• Weight: 50.5 lbs (22.9 kg)

I would lie if I said the sound of this amp is not great; however, I need to warn potential buyers, this thing might die on you quite early. I purchased the DSL40CR two years ago. Unfortunately, it stopped working a couple of days ago while using emulation, I was not even using the speaker. I live in a condo so I am able to use the speaker once every two months. I might have used the amp once every two weeks (emulation). As you can see the use was pretty low so I cannot understand how this thing just died. I guess a quality issue which is very sad. Lights are on but there is no sound. Warranty is only 1 year. I got the amp at North York store. I would not take the change with this product.

Huge Marshall sound. I suggest the 6 button footswitch to access the 4-ish channels that exist within the monster. Seriously, it's a must in a guitarists toolbox. The EL34's are well represented, throw in a VOX with EL84 valves, and you can have your own British invasion.

I've had this amp close to 2 years. I love it. It's loud. The tubes provide the legendary Marshall sound. Capable of adding a cabinet. Only thing I'd love more is a smaller version without losing tone for small venues since all amps are mic'd up.

I have had this amp for a year now and love it. I had to buy the cover and 6-way foot switch separately, which I think should come standard. Classic Marshall tones and takes pedals really well. Only complaint is it gets a little squealy when cranked up with full gain. It's loud but I still get drowned out when I'm trying to keep up with my buddies 150 watt half stack. Overall, this is a fantastic amp!

Hyper versatility. Clean channel warm. Can do plexi jcm 800 jcm 900 sound. 2 masters is very cool. Reverb is not very good. Emulated out do the job. 20 40 watts switch is cool.
Better with the 6 buttons footswitch in option.

I\'ve played this amp in the store it seems like forever.
Traded in my Fender 68\' Deluxe R for the DSL40CR.
Not putting down the Deluxe but not sorry to see it go.
(Have other Fender Amps - Vintage and Re-issue).
The Marshall for me is inspiring and makes me better.
I want to play more and when I\'m finished playing
I want to go back and play some more.
Have not even gotten pedals out yet. Just this amp.
In fact just the amp with everything pegged at ten except
the Master. (Have neighbors so have to keep it down).
I\'m so glad I bought it. Not sure why I waited so long.
Right fit and right time I guess?
Inspiring, so inspiring. (Wild Thing!)
Massive gain, which I like the most and Marshall Clean
like few others. Great all around rock and blues amp.
As someone has said elsewhere: \"You never forget your first Marshall Amp; It\'s so empowering.\" \'and\'
\"it\'s time to tame the elephant.

This is a very versatile amp and can play various different styles of music it has tons of tonal options and is just a great overall amp to be honest you don’t even need a stack to play gigs this will do just fine if you use the 40 watts on it.

Great overall amp. Has nice cleans and lots of OD options. Takes pedals very well. Good speaker in it. Takes a few hours of time to break it in. It’s not made in USA but the price is decent. I’ve had it now for about 3 months. Wish it had a cover.. the 20 or 40 watt option is great and easily selected. Big difference in the two modes obviously. Also has a stand by. Very pleased with it so far. I would definitely recommend this amp for a wide variety of music styles for guitar, so a well rounded versatile amp. It can get very loud if need be.

It's a Marshall, looks like one sounds like one . Delivers classic Marshall tones and a more modern approach as well with the O.D. 2 channel and the tone shift feature. I wish it came stock with the 6-way footswitch. Gonna try it with the midi hookup on my Boss MS-3 and see if I can get the same kinda versatility that the 6-way switch offers. If you are a Marshall fan, you will really like this amp, if you are a Marshall first-timer, you gonna love this amp. Unmistakable Marshall grit!

I owned an original dsl 40 combo almost 15 years ago. It overheated, had a strange fizzy/sizzle like sound that trailed the distortion and would just stop working from time to time. This new version is an entirely different amp. The cabinet is shallower, wider and taller. It also has 3 or 4 amazing sounds which are simple to dial in. No overheating issues. As far as reliability - that remains to be seen but I am pleasantly surprised by how great this amp sounds. The originals had a Wolverine speaker the new ones have a v-type celestion. I think the new speaker sounds great. Plug and play Marshall tube mojo at a somewhat affordable price. Enough power to gig with and a half power mode as well to practice with. It's a keeper - this time.

Been looking for a budget tube amp that has that 70s and 80s rock sound, this amp has go it all. Kinda loud, even in the 20w mode, but I can still get my tones approximately, especially the brown sound that Eddie Van Halen gets from his modded plexi.

This is an amazing amp. Can go from clean tones to a bluesy subtle overdrive to high gain metal tones. If you want a versatile amp for gigging, this is a great choice. It works well with pedals, and because of the FX loop, you can use the amp's crunch while still keep clean any effects that sound better after distortion. If you want to use this amp in the bedroom, be sure to keep the power on low, since otherwise, it will be too loud. On the other hand, when doing a gig, feel free to set the power to high. I?d recommend getting this amp. This is a great investment.

The only down side to this amp is that it's really heavy. Without any pedals I can get a sweet heavy/ thrash metal, crunch and clean sound out of it. If you haven't gotten a chance to try it, give Long and Mcquade a visit and try one! You wont regret it! I'm positive this amp will be good for a lot of years.

Only had it for a couple of days so I may update this later. This amp is wonderful, the clean tones are warm, somewhat dark, and every bit as high quality as the Fender amps I've used in the past. The distorted tones have a smooth sound to them but can get genuinely dirty when you crank the gain. It's a great tone you can get when you tame the major league bass kick the amp has. Of course it sounds better with the volume cranked. This is a wonderful all around amp and was half the price of the other Orange, H&K and Fender options I was looking at. You can't go wrong with a legit Marshall. Some have complained about the reverb. It's not particularly strong so you need to dime it but it sounds really good, it's just a room style reverb so it doesn't totally change your sound all that much. One other thing to note, you can get reasonable tones out of it at lower levels, thanks to the master volumes. This was a concern for me because I wanted an amp I could play at home and could gig with a band. The 20 watt option works wonders. Get this amp!!!

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
