      Comments about Marshall DSL40C Limited Edition Vintage 40W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

      This amp has too much gain, too much trouble, and too much bass. That's why it's great, it doesn't leave you wanting more. I've had it about a month now and I think it is just great. It's hard to have a bad setting, the amp always sounds good. I love the way it looks, I love the way the knobs feel. With all the settings you essentially have 4 channels, plus the tone shift button you can really dial in what you are looking for.

      A few gripes I have heard are that there is not enough reverb. If if you bought this amp I'm sure you already have a decent reverb pedal, anything you need beyond what the amp is giving you should be handled by a reverb pedal anyways.

      I've read the Lead channels have too much treble when you switch from clean to distortion, I have not found that to be the case. The amp has a lot of treble (especially before the speaker breaks in) but you can eq it to your liking. If you can't balance the clean/lead eq then this is not the amp for you. Some people are happy doing c19 mod to lessen the trouble on the Lead channel, I don't think it's necessary. Some people have said swapping out for a different speaker resolved the issue.

      I've heard the clean channel is not equal to other brands, but I do not agree with that, the clean channels are beautiful and unique. If you prefer another amps clean channel than get that amp. The clean channel is not lacking.

      I played this amp, a Blackstar ht40 and a peavy 6505 60w combo before buying this. They are all great amps. The DSL40C stood out to me, it sounded good no matter how the eq was set, I really enjoyed my time with it. The Blackstar and Peavey had me messing with the eq the whole time trying to find nice settings. They sounded like there was a pillow in front of the speaker.

      Here we have a great sounding amp at a great price. It cranks, it gets very loud, and sounds very good.

          Comments about Marshall DSL40C Limited Edition Vintage 40W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

          From another review: "One bummer, you can't run the on board speaker and an external speaker at the same time."

          I believe this is inaccurate. The 16 ohm on-board speaker is connected to a speaker cable that plugs into the amp like any other speaker cable. If you plug it, and another 16 ohm speaker (or cabinet), into the amp's two 8 ohm speaker jacks, you'll be using the amp in one of its intended configurations. This is described in the owner's manual.

            Comments about Marshall DSL40C Limited Edition Vintage 40W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

            This amp replaced my TSL122 when it failed. I tried Orange, Fender and non-tube Marshalls and none of them were sufficient. I play weekend bar gigs in a Rock/blues trio. THIS amp is awesome! Very versatile, very creamy on the Hendrix/SRV. If you like the Marshall sound--this is a great way to get it (settings let you choose from 4 different vintage Marshall amps). Plenty loud enough for a bar environment but it handles the clean subtle passages with ease. The vintage look really creates a buzz. The only bad part is the hiss on the high gain. All in all a GREAT amp. 9 out of 10. Not to mention it's about half the weight of my TSL.

              I've only had it now for a couple of weeks but this amp has great tone and plenty of gain. The reverb is a bit light but that's OK. I wanted a portable amp to take around places and also one to sit on top of a 212 cabinet that I have for bigger gigs. It seems to have plenty of strength and it sounds great. One bummer, you can't run the on board speaker and an external speaker at the same time. Not a deal breaker though. It's a great amp, try it, you'll love it.
