Comments about Marshall DSL5C 5W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo with Celestion Ten-30:

Hi, Been a Big Marshall fan ever since the 70s. Had both tube and solidstate. Being I am 60 years young I know what a real Marshall made in the UK is suppose to sound like. And this ain't it. I had high hopes for a more compact amp I could use around the house. But what a dissapointment. First the clean sounds too bright and like a solid state. You have to turn it all the way up to get any crunch which still does not get there. Second the ultra sound is the worst. No crunch even at a 2 setting on the preamp. Its all distorted the higher you go, but a bad kind of unclear fizzy distortion.Also its a distortion that can't even be used for metal. I can't believe they could produce something like this an actually put it on the market. Just sold mine today.

Comments about Marshall DSL5C 5W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo with Celestion Ten-30:

I was very excited when I ordered this amp! Sounded great on youtube reviews! When it came in, I tested it out, and was a bit disappointed with the sound. I think it should have a better speaker in it. I hooked it up to my 4x12 Marshall cab, and wow, it sure kicks in well!!! Using it this way, it is loud enough to play live, and sounds great!!! Great amp if you have better speakers to plug it into, as it has a 16ohm output on it. So all in all, I love the tone and depth it gives!!

Comments about Marshall DSL5C 5W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo with Celestion Ten-30:

I wanted a practice / jam amp that sounded like a Marshall, had an effects loop, and was all tube. For the most part this is that amp. The only downside is good crunch tones on the clean channel don't start until you crank the amp up pretty loud. The Ultra Gain channel has a dark sound so using the preamp gain doesn't really sound like classic crunch to me but it is great for more modern tones. I tried the 1 watt setting but the bass gets REALLY flabby when you get into crunch territory. Perhaps the bass does the same thing on 5 watts but I havn't cranked it up that loud. I'm using a mod'ed Boss SD-1 to summon the classic rock soudns that I need for now. The SD-1 sounds great running into the DSL5c, in fact, pretty much every pedal I've put in front of it sounds fantastic. All in all I think this amp is a complete winner if you need something like this. Kudos to Marshall..... But please give us a crunch switch. :)

    Comments about Marshall DSL5C 5W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo with Celestion Ten-30:

    Honestly, I am truly blown away by this lil' monster.
    When you unbox this, and feel the weight and sturdiness, you know right then that this is something special.
    It's one of those items that nails almost all the items a guitarist would have on their "do-all" wish list.
    Only the Blackstar HT-5R comes close, but they can't quite nail down that true, unmistakeable Marshall tone and they don't have the 5w/1w option. That said, I had a hard time choosing between the two, but having had Marshall Amps in the past, I knew with the DSL5C I would be getting Marshall quality, extreme durability and versatility.
    My only knock is the lack of a seperate volume control on the clean channel, which is truly a small quibble considering the clean channel on the 5 watt setting will get very, very loud in your typical bedroom/small practice room. We're talking tube watts here, so conventional wisdom says multiple by the rated tube wattage by 4 or 5 times for an equivalent solid state wattage. Plenty loud to annoy everyone in the house.
    The second issue I have, and it's very small one in my case, is that the stock 10" 10-30 Celestion speaker really does not do this amp justice. It does give a bit of that "icepick" effect unless you roll back the treble to the 2-3 range. It may smooth out over time if given a chance to break in, but I had other plans. 10" speakers will not give you that more full and bassy sound that you get out of a 12 inch, but guitar is a mid-range frequency instrument, and you do have the deep switch and bass control on this amp that allow for a more than acceptable amount of tweakability.
    I purchased a Celstion Greenback G10 and a Celestion G10 Gold to have versatility in my tone and it knocked my socks off in both cases when installed in this amp. The brittleness of the stock speaker was completely gone and this amp becomes the ultimate tone machine with my SSL5/CS69/CS Fat 50's strat. Both the Greenback and the Gold are nothing short of phenomenal speakers.
