A Mid-Shift button reconfigures the mids when activated and a Deep switch adds extra low-end "girth" if required. The built-in, footswitchable digital reverb is studio quality and a Pentode/Triode switch on the rear panel drops the power to 7.5W.

Footswitch included.

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

I did not care for the Red Channel on this amp at all. The distortion was fizzy,and sounded terrible. I replaced the speaker, and also the tubes which helped. I ultimately got rid of it. If you turn either channels gain up at all it compresses and sounds bad. Too much gain on the Red Channel. Reverb is terrible as well. I liked the size, and wattage of this amp but tha'ts about it.

      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.

              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.

                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.
