I purchased a Marshall TSL 122 four days ago. It just arrived today and I got home and hooked it up and played it all afternoon. This amp sounds absolutely great with every style of music I play, and I am amazed with how such a big sound comes out of such a small amp! I also have a TSL 100 Half Stack, and the TSL 122 to me, sounds better than the TSL 100! This is probably due to the fact that the TSL 122 has two different speakers. It gets a great clean sound, a great crunch sound, and a great dirty solo sound! Infact, it is the only amp out of the 25 amps I own that can match the lead sound that Slash of Guns N roses uses on Sweet Child O Mine! If you are looking to buy an amp that sounds great, I would strongly advise you to take a look at the TSL 122, however since they have been discontinued, they are very hard to find. But, if you are in the market to buy an amp that will blow you and everyone you play for away, definitely look at the TSL 122!

Had to play this as the house amp at a gig last week. I own a Mesa Rectoverb, Blue Angel, a Peavey Classic 50, and a Crate V-series V-50 to currently compare this to. I have also owned the JCM2000 DSL401 several years ago that had enormous reliablity issues.When I tweaked and worked with this amplifier, I was astounded with it's inability to get any real warmth or depth. I usually like a middle of the road rock sound and I don't need chimey cleans, so I thought using this at our gig wouldn't be too bad. This amplifier sounds dead on the cleans, and the crunch/drive channel is putrid. It's a very thin, 1 dimensional, fizzy tone at all volumes. EQ/Gain adjustments did not help either. I was able to tell that it wasn't having tube issues, and the owner said he had re-tubed and re-biased it last month. For the money, this amp is an atrocity, and if you want brit tone with crunch, dimension, warmth, and good cleans (pristine and/or gritty) Look at the Mesa Stiletto Ace combo much better value tone-wise, and reliability-wise for less money. Marshall is done, stick a fork in them.

Best Tube Amp around

By Kevin Wyrsch

from Woodland, CA

I have played almost every modern day tube amp. Nothing can compare to Marshall's JCM 2000 TSL 122. Pure & Simple, this amp can do it all.The amp has so much Warmth & Bass. My Hollow Body gets amazing Jazz/Blue Tones. I can literally play a bass guitar on this Amp and it sounds better than any other Bass amp I've used.Power ? This Amp doesn't break up at any high volume level. In fact, It sounds better louder. Go figure. Distortion is the selling point of Marshall. It's what makes ANY Marshall stand out. And the Amp doesn't disappoint. Put this distortion against any Fender. It's not even a fight. Plus you get 2 overdrive channels.However, I do agree. The price isn't pretty. But you won't get any better Modern day.

I love this amp

By Chunks

from Coatesville, PA

No other amp I have owned has this sound with the exception of the TSL100 which I owned a few years ago and have missed ever since I parted company with it.I freakin LOVE that Marshall tube sound.The only negative comment I have is the price. Its WAY too expensive. Marshall is trading on their name to get that price. They should drop it about 25% and then I'd have nothing bad to say at all.Thus far I have had no reliability issues. The price blows but I am totally happy with the amp. Totally.

Marshall's Flagship TSL122 Combo

By vfrguitarman-AxbZE

from Cedar Rapids, Iowa

This is the very first Marshall amplifier I have ever bought in the 37 years I have been playing guitar. I have owned a Fender Twin for many years, a Laney AOR through the 80s and 90s, and a Mesa Dual Rectifier half stack since 2001. Let me say the first time I powered up this combo I was impressed with it's power, sweet reverb, and authentic benchmark Marshall crunch. I was thirsting for a bit more gain compared to the Mesa. After reading Technical remarks about this amps stock tubes, I retubed the amp with Groove Tubes, set the bias to GT's recommendations (I am an Avionics Electronics Technician) and presto! My used 1999 TSL122 kills! The clean channel is bell like Fender with more body, the second channel you can set for that classic 80s 90s crunch and the third channel I get an awesome singing quality. The 3 channel format is the only way to go when playing out. It is a brut to lug around but well worth the effort. Reliablity seems to be a large concern, I recommend proper warm up before playing and cool off period before moving after gig. Tubes are sensitive, treat them well and you'll be rewarded. I love my TSL, the Mesa hardly ever gets attention now.

Classic marshall sound

By Dale

from Hillsborough N.J.

Ask me a question

This was a good amp for me, I wanted a dark sounding amp with a lot of crunch, and sustain for leads, etc. I usually use the Lead and Crunch channels. I rarely use the clean channel. I play slide guitar, and it sounds good on this amp. I use an Epiphone Dot 335 copy and a 1970 Gibson les Paul Deluxe with old DiMarzios, and I get a real good Rock and Blues sound. It has a foot switch, and what I generally do is, play rhythm on the Crunch Channel, and when a lead comes up, switch to the Lead Channel set at a higher volume. I would suggest getting a power Conditioner with this amp. Without the Conditioner, this amp is too noisy. I bought a Trip-Lite. I hear the Furmans are good also. I wish this amp came with Echo, or Slap Delay. I wish Marshall could make these lighter, this Bad Boy is HEAVY!

rock n roll amp for sure

By Damien Cross

from Austin, Texas

Rock tones are beautiful. EQ settings go from very bright to very dark. Lots of versatility. The reverb is very prominant. Both OD channels have a "shape" button. These scoop the mids without cutting the mid knob function. This gives you lots of possibilities of tone. One thing against it I will mention is the Virtual power reduction button and Mute button. The fact that there are buttons at all kind of annoys me. They all work good except my mute button. As of lately it is shorting out causing my amp to stutter. But I do like their fuctions so it's not all bad. I'll just replace them with mini toggles and I dont see any problems after that. Love ther tone and the volume. This thing is loud. Blows away fender deville series completely. One more thing. For those of you that use tele's and more thin than normal strats, the mid boost on the clean channel will appeal to you alot. I love it with my strat and tele, but my custom tele with Seymore humbuckers really pushes the OD channels. Good amp, Decent price.

joe rocker

By Joe-E0xMC

from peoria IL

I've played this amp a few times as our other guitarist has it. I have the tsl100 stack myself and must say I was impressed at the output of this combo, and seriously easy to move around. The sound output is very similar to the big brother, just slightly less volume but even on 4 its plenty loud for any local venue. The only downside has been some reliability issues, and several blown fuses. While not having the visual appeal of the half stack on stage, it redeems itself through the big sound that comes from this small box. if it was more reliable it would be perfect.

Sweetness

By Teleboy420

from dallas tx

Played with a standard tele today, and it sounds sweet through this amp. Like I read on one of the other reviews, add just a touch of gain and it sounds just like a nashville. I have never played on a quality tube amp before, and now I dont think I will ever be able to go solid again. Really awesome tone. Wasn't able to fully utilize all of the options on it, oweing to that fact that all I have is an acoustic, but I love to spend all afternoon playing guitars at guitar center. I have now decided on the next combination of amp and guitar I buy. It will be a tele, and if not this amp, it will be another, cheaper marshall tube amp. Great sound, just a hare bit expensive, but all great amps are, so I guess it's a compromise.

The Best Combo Amp, Period!!!!!

By Erik Johnson

from Seattle, WA

It's got all the tone and power that you would ever want from an amplifier. This amp is a dream come true for any stay-at-home guitar player. You can tweak your overdrive tone from one absolute side of the spectrum all the way to the other. I took 5 days off of work when I got mine. I had to bond with my new-found LOVE!!
