      Comments about Marshall DSL15C 15W All-Tube 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

      The amplifier sounds great and the low power options really let you get those valves cooking without blasting out the neighbors. Still, I wouldn't mind a standby switch and an effects loop. For the price, these seem like reasonable requests. Also, the reverb is so weak that even turned up all the way you can barely detect it. I initially thought it was broken. Its the reverb that lost them the fifth start.

        Comments about Marshall DSL15C 15W All-Tube 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

        LIKE SOME OTHERS, I LOVE THE AMP TONE OVER-ALL BUT IT SEEMED TO HAVE A BIT TOO MUCH GAIN/DISTORTION ESPECIALLY ON THE ULTRA GAIN CHANNEL FOR MY TASTE. SO I SWITCHED THE PRE-AMP TUBES TO SOVTEK 12AX7WA (LOWER GAIN) PRE-AMP TUBES & IT MADE A DIFFERENCE. APARANTLY THE PRE-AMP TUBES ARE HIGH GAIN TUBES. I DISCOVERED A FEW YEARS AGO WHEN I PUT STANDARD 12AX7 PRE-AMP TUBES IN MY AMERICAN MADE FENDER HOT ROD DELUXE AMP IT HAD DISTORTION ON THE CLEAN CHANNEL & AFTER REPLACING THEM WITH THE 12AX7WA TUBES THE CLEAN CHANNEL NO LONGER HAD DISTORTION. THE MARSHALL STILL HAS SOME DISTORTION WITH 12AX7WA PRE-AMP TUBES IN CHANNEL 1 (CLASSIC GAIN) CHANNEL IF YOU CRANK UP THE GAIN BUT NOT AS MUCH AS WITH THE ORIG. ECC83 PRE-AMP TUBES IT CAME WITH, & FOR ME THERE IS SUFFICIENT GAIN ON THE ULTRA GAIN (CHANNEL 2) WITH THE SOVTEK 12AX7A PRE-AMP TUBES, SO IF YOU FEEL THERE IS TOO MUCH DISTORTION TRY SOME LOWER GAIN PRE-AMP TUBES, IT WORKED FOR ME!

          Comments about Marshall DSL15C 15W All-Tube 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

          follow up to my 12/26 review. Day or 2 after purchase I noticed a "hum" when switched down to 7.5 watts, checked & found one of the power amp tubes was cold, I ordered some T.A.D. power amp tubes but had an N.O.S. set of Phillips 6v6gt tubes so I plugged those in & they sounded great so I am saving the T.A.D. O.E. type tubes for now. plugged the amp into a Mesa 2X12 Recto cab & the tone is a lot thicker, love the Marshall DSL tone, reverb is nothing to brag about, may have been better off with the DSL Head since I have the vertical/ slant mesa recto cab to plug into. Will NOT PART WITH THIS AMP, unless I decide to switch to the head version.

          Comments about Marshall DSL15C 15W All-Tube 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

          In my opinion the amp sounds awesome & seems geared mainly towards distorted music, doesn't have a dedicated clean channel. I played a Gibson Les Paul w/ p-90 bridge pick-up, set on ultra gain channel 2 with gain at about 3, as well as everything else except bass at 8, presence at 5 & the tone was Heaven sent,(also had treble on guitar at 6 1/2), so I am sure my other Les Paul guitars w/Humbuckers will sound even better.

            New to electric guitar and found the Marshall sound to be what I was looking for, warm with easy controls.
            The Pentode/Triode switching feature is excellent for in home and outside use.
            Definitely an amp to check out!

            Comments about Marshall DSL15C 15W All-Tube 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

            I really like this amp! I think if this amp had the digital effects from the Marshall Haze 40 combo, it would have been the ultimate small combo! The delay from the haze 40 package would have really added to the reverb effect of the amp.
            That said I have many different amplifiers and was looking specifically for a 15 - 20 watt Marshall tube amp. If you are looking for a do everything amp you may be better served spending a bit more and buying the Marshall DSL 40C, of course I'm assuming you've already decided to buy some version of Marshall amplification.

              Great amp for a great price. I was looking for a smaller amp for some time. It was between this a fender blues junior and a vox ac15. This was the one I kept coming back to. I have such a blast playing this thing. It gives me all of that marshall roar that I wanted.

              Comments about Marshall DSL15C 15W All-Tube 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

              I am not in a band, but I take part in jam outs regularly. Every one I know that has heard this amp- ranging from very experienced musicians, guitar teachers, enthusiasts and people with not a drop of musical interest have loved the tone of this beast. I played this alongside an Egnator Rebel 30 most notably and became even more content with my purchase. Being able to switch from 15w to 7.5 w is a very cool bonus as well. The lack of an effects loop is not a problem. I've always preferred going straight in anyways, so I can't see that as being a con. The bass response is awesome, very throaty. I play through a 2004 MIM strat modded to a HSS, roll the presence and treb around 10 o clock, gain at 9 o clock, bass at 3 o clock through ultra gain-I can play for hours. Want cleans? Roll back the volume, switch to bridge, done. The reverb is great but not very apparent. That's why I still use the rv-3. This review is terrible because my phone is typing ultra slow but you get the point. One of the finest amps in this price range for sure

                This is yet another great design from Marshall. Being able to set it on Triode for 7.5 watt operation can help save your ears when playing for long periods of time as well as getting great tone without waking the dead. Also has enough volume to play in many small live situations as well. Channel 2 has very much gain and care should be taken when tweaking the controls. It can get a bit fizzy/fuzzy if too much gain is used. From jazz to hard rock and blues to metal this amp can do it all. Very fast response and articulation.
