    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 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.

    Very Nice Amp

    By Zboots

    from Dothan, AL

    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.

    Great amp in the right hands!

    By kissjd1

    from Georgia

    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.

    Great Amp

    By StratLPshredder

    from Yorba Linda, CA

    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.

    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.

    what a majior disapointment

    By Livn4him

    from Yukon OK

    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!

    Happy with my TSL602

    By Marred and Back

    from Los Angeles, CA

    Have owned this for about 2 years now and so far am very happy. This thing sounds fantastic, the clean is very clean the crunch is extremely versatile, from subtle breakup to hard rockin' distortion and the lead takes it over the top, all the distortion you would want. This thing sounds good at bedroom levels or cranked is even better. Nothing broken after 2 years. Switching from lead to clean channel with the reverb on causes a fizzing sound for about second, the effects loop could be louder but these are my only two complaints. Word of advice, the tone of this amp depends on how you tweak the knobs. You might not like it if not set right, as always, read the owners manual. This beast is heavy and has no side handles but no problems transporting. Treat her right and she'll do the same for you. Warm her up before before playing and don't move her until she cools down and you will have a beautiful relationship.

    lespaul/marshall

    By Les Paul 88-Lu9NP

    from Phenix City, Al.

    I have owned this great amp for three years now. It is an amazing amp. It truly has great sound at any volume level. It is the only amp I take with me no matter how large a show I play. I through a mic on it and the sound is awesome through the P.A. system. The different sound you can get out of it is just great. I have played my strat through it with great tone. Although the clean sound isnt as pure as a fender tube amp. I've always like the sound of a dirty clean so it suits me just fine. My Les Paul screams awesome tone through it. I highly trecommend this amp to anyone who is looking for the convenience of a combo amp.

    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.

    Marshall=

    By Joaquin Figueroa

    from Gonzales, TX

    There is no substitution for "the" tone. Throughout history, rock has been known for the Marshall sound. This amp gives you various options to select a warm or screaming tones with the crunch and lead channels. The footswitch comes in handy if you set the lead volume higher than your crunch or clean. Just kick in the lead switch and you have more volume for your solos. Super amp!!!
