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

    The clean channel is very crisp. The Ultra Gain channel just sounds like rock 'n roll. I read all of the evaluations by those who reviewed this amp. Like they say, the reverb is very low or weak, not like a Fender at all. I, too, would like a "stand by" switch. The amp is easy to set for tone . The foot switch is a lot of fun. I really bought this particular amp because of the pentode/triode switch, and it works. The amp is well constructed and looks like it will be easy to maintain with easy access to the tubes and speaker.

          I've never had a Marshal before. After using this one I ask myself why did I wait so long. Great for small venues and large. brings out the best sounding any guitar. Stop thinking about it, buy it!

            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!

                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.
