I've had my TSL602 for several years now, and couldn't be happier. I've been searching for that un-mistakable Marshall crunch and finally found it with my TSL602. If you're looking for a flexible 3 channel amp capable of going from clean, to crunch to lead, this is it. I usually play my Fender Strat Deluxe, SG standard, or my Les Paul thru this amp. With the right settings you can achieve almost any rock tone from any era. It does take some time to dial in the right tone and learn how the controls affect the overall tone. I think thats the mistake some people make when trying out an amp is they just turn all knobs to 10 and hope to acheive the sound they're after. No, this amp is very flexible and setting the tone controls properly is key to achieving the sound you are looking for. With the correct settings, the crunch channel alone can go from clean, to a bluesy push, to a rockin' AC/DC or Led Zep sound. The crunch channel with different settings can go from heavy Sabbath, to blistering Metallica. High gain is still very clear, not just loud and distorted. I did give this amp an 8 for features since it does not have independent tone controls for the crunch/lead channels. Head noise while present, is not too loud or unbearable. The addition of a noise gate pretty much eliminates any head noise and highly recommend for any high gain user anyways. I've had zero problems in the 5+ years I've had this amp, including the footswitch. I recently added a Marshall TSLC212 2x12 cab to this combo and it really helped to bring this beast alive. Now heavier tones are achived with out having to turn up the bass and muddy up my sound. Highly recommed if you're looking for punk, AC/DC, Zep, Metallica, Sabbath, RATM, etc...

I bought this amp (my first Marshall) thinking that I would be satisfied with "creamy tone" and ballsy "punch". Well, the the amp was warm, and even had sustain in the "crunch" mode. But the lead channel sucked! It sounded very thin, and didn't seem to cut through the mix. I tried whatever I could to get that amp to "tone up" but to no avail. It sounded better on the crunch channel, with my tube screamer pushing it a little bit. I was quite disappointed because I was expecting a lot more than what I got. The clean channel? It was ok, but nothing special. I went and traded it on a Fender Twin. Now, THAT is an amp!! I'm sorry to say it, but I'll never buy another Marshall. Oh yeah, the foot pedal? It broke within a week!! And it's not like I "stomp" on it either. Not so good Marshall!!

It Rocks and Blues

By danpetroni.com

from Keasbey, NJ

Marshall JCM2000 TSL602 Combo Amp is a great amp! The TSL602 can give that wonderful Marshall sound at low volumes. Now this amp weights 79lb, it is a heavy mother. One might install casters to save ones back because wheels aren?t included. I wish they would have installed the side handles like the 122, but hey... The clean channel...Well is very clean. Listen if love the Marshall sounds in a compacted version you will love this amp. Now this is my Rock and Blues amp, no bells and whistlers. For Jazz I use a fender hotrod with one 12?. The TSL602 is a great amp and I love the sound crunch, and overdrive. Setting up this amp sounds has a small learning curve. Setup, guitars and what style you play are as personal as what type of women you like? So, in short this TSL602 is one hot mama!!! Now after saying that this amp is a hot mama? How you treat her will determine how she'll hold up with time? It?s a tube amp so it you warm it up using the standby switch and let it cool down at the end of gigs, have a road case it will be fine. I let know if she falls apart with time, but so far so good. If you got the time and money go play the TSL602 for yourself. Tell'm Jazzbo sent ya.

Unhappy

By Guy-mdHDe

from Pt. Jefferson Station, NY

I purchased a TSL 602 on 12/24/03, used it for my first band practice one week later and halfway through the first song when I stepped on the foot controller to change channels the amp crapped out. Took it back to the shop I bought it from and was told the foot controller was no good. Was told I would get a replacement pedal within a few days. It is now 2 months later and I still have not gotten the pedal. Was told Marshall is redesigning the pedal and I have to wait because there are over 300 backlogged. I am so angry. I can't find any direct customer service phone number, and am completely put off that Marshall would treat customers this way. I've always been a faithful Marshall customer, but no more.

Great amp in the right hands!

By kissjd1

from Georgia

See all my reviews

I've had a few of these amps through the years and overall I'm very impressed. The lead channel is just smoking- tons of gain, the crunch channel is great for Zep or AC/DC, and the clean channel is a bit dark, but hey it's a Marshall. If you want glassy clean sounds buy a Fender. I've read a few negative reviews and I agree it does not sound like a Marshall half-stack. That's because it's a 2X12" combo. Whether I play my Strat or Les Paul through this amp the sound at lower volumes is incredible! Great for bedroom practice sessions. As far as price, well it's an all-tube Marshall so it's gonna be expensive.

Very Nice Amp

By Zboots

from Dothan, AL

See all my reviews

Bought this amp used some time ago and have had zero trouble with it. It cranks pretty good and has a variety of tones you can get as you tweak the controls. If I don't trade it off for a lighter amp (it's heavy), I probably will upgrade the speakers as I've read this is where you get the most bang for you buck. This amp sounded great when jamming outdoors with one of my buddies and his Orange amp. I mostly play a Gibson Les Paul Custom through it and sometimes a Fender Strat or Gibson Marauder. Each are distinct in the way they sound with the LP being superior sounding to me.

Closest thing to two amps in one.

By C Man-DaDFf

from Schertz, TX

See all my reviews

If they had a rating of 9.5, I would have given this amp that rating in Value and Overall. This amp has a great clean channel. When it comes to an amp with multiple channels, this is the best clean channel out there I have heard. It is real close to Fender clean. The lead/crunch channel is good also, it just takes a little more tweaking. With the second/third channel, less is more. If you have to play Alan Jackson, then turn around and play some Metallica, this is an excellent amp. The clean channel works great with single coil guitars, especially using a compressor. The lead/crunch channels work great with humbuckers or single coil. You won't get that 'recto tone' out of the lead/crunch channel, but you will get a very high gain Marshall tone. No amp does both clean and distortion channels perfectly, but this amp is the closest I have heard.

This is my first tube amp so I don't have much to compare it with, but it does kick the crud outta my other amps that aren't tube. The clean channel sounds pretty sweet, but the distortion isn't that great! But I use it to record with and it sounds pretty nice!!! I love the volume! Pretty good amp!

sweet amp

By mckinley farm

from coquille, oregon

not overly loud, but just right. Loads of tones and user friendly. Get your tones set and then set volumes. And it barks and growls just right. Had to come up with tube vib/trem as after-market product. and this amp should come with a cover. A new les paul would.

Great Amp

By StratLPshredder

from Yorba Linda, CA

See all my reviews

Don't be mislead by the negative reviews, this is a great amp. I have played a Peavey Valveking, a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe and a Vox AC30. The Marshall TSL602 has a good clean channel and a great crunch channel. My favorite channel is the lead channel. It is also clear even at high volumes. The shift and deep button make this amp even more versatile and the reverb is great. It is all about personal tastes and each amp is not exactly the same so try it out before you buy.

You want Marshall, you got Marshall

By RaceRevlon

from Southern California

See all my reviews

Before purchasing this amp, my only all-valve amplifier was my Crate Vintage 30. This amp goes far and above that amp with the perfect glassy Marshall tone on the Clean channel and vintage OD on the Crunch channel, topped only by the shred capabilities of the Lead channel. Only my JMP-1 has more channels! Maybe a little pricey but altogether not bad for an all-valve 2x12 that can go from garage to amphitheater. Ten stars would be the TSL 122 but this one gets a solid nine plus.

It's all personal taste guys......I really like the stock sound of this baby! I've had the celestion 75s mentioned and vintage 30's too.....these Wolverines rock. And have great personality. Marshall doesn't know amp sounds as well as some of these reviewers, you might think from reading! But they do! Who knew? Jamming with a drummer at stage levels it's friggin outa site! Incredible! Magical! Before I bought this I tried the Genz Benz and there was no comparison ........the Marshall was the easy choice. Well worth the extra couple hundred. It's so good I just hooked up a TSL60 head too!

Very disappointed.

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I just sold mine, good features but dont like the overall sound I had big expectations for this amp and was let down from the day I recieved it. I don't know if it was just the one I got or what but this thing has no real tone to it untill you are at ear piercing levels. Out of three channels I only found the crunch channel to have a useable sound. The clean chanel lacks in all aspects. And the lead channel was too muddy for my taste. I play a les paul studio and a e2 explorer. and it did not do the guitars justice. Now playing a fender hot rod deluxe with celestion loaded 2x12 cab. and a marshall guv-nor pedal for dirty and it blows away the marshall at half the cost. Sorry Marshall I just did not like this one.

this amp is great. i played it at a local music shop and i was amazed. i'm more of a stack person but for small shows i would use this amp. at first i was kinda skeptical because it is a combo and not a stack. and i like the volume i get with a stack. but i was on the 2 on this and i could feel air from the speakers hitting my leg. so it's got the volume i need.

I was expecting to buy a TSL601. I played everything they had including a DSL401, TSL122 and I liked this one the best. At first this amp doesn't sound like a $$$$ amp but once you play around with the controls, this thing has tone!!! I am so glad I bought this than any other Marshall. This amp lives up to it's name. P.S. Did I mention that this is freaking loud?

what a majior disapointment

By Livn4him

from Yukon OK

See all my reviews

My friend has a jcm 2000 100 watt head that sounded great. That was just too much for me so I tried this amp. In the store it sounded great but I bought it and took it home and tried to get a good clean sound....it doesn?t have one. The distortion sound ok but I have an Electro Harmonics British Muffin pedal that blows this distortion away. I have since took this thing back and saved myself a whole lot of money and bought a B-52 combo. Now that had a great clean channel and a very modern distortion that is marvelous. This marshal should not even have the name marshal on it! Either spends more money and gets a Mesa or Save some money and get a better amp by looking around. Peavey also is starting to make some great amps. Check them out too!

TSL602

By Dreamingof thunder

from CHINLE, AZ

If you ever have owned a Marshall tube half stack, you will not be happy with this amp. The speaker distort at half volume. Spend the extra money and get a JCM2000 with the 1960A cab. Enclosed speakers make a huge differance. This amp does not have enough power, and the speakers aren't that good.
