OVERVIEW

Get awesome, low-wattage DSL tone and modern features for the studio or practice.

The next generation of the Marshall DSL series has arrived! These DSL amps are laden with Marshall tone, features and functionality for the novice, as well as pros performing on the world’s biggest stages. The DSL series includes the following updated features:

Adjustable Power Output
The DSL models feature adjustable power settings, which delivers all-valve tone and feel, at any volume, from bedroom to stage. This technology adjusts power to the valves, instead of just turning off valve stages, allowing the amp to remain articulate and dynamic.

EQ Refinements
Some innovative tweaks to the EQ circuitry have given the new DSLs even greater tonal flexibility. The EQ section of the new DSLs can deliver exactly what your ears are looking for.

Emulated Output
Marshall's partnership with Softube has led to the creation of award-winning plug-ins, as well as exceptional tone in its CODE digital amps. The same team is responsible for the development of the new emulated output feature, found in the DSL series. Both the headphone out, and line out on the DSL models boast incredibly accurate emulation of Marshall's famed 1960 cabinet.

Reverb, Resonance and Master Volume
The DSL is now more versatile than ever, with features including discrete master volume controls for each channel, built-in reverb and resonance controls (the DSL1 and DSL5 do not offer resonance controls).

New Models
Additions to the range include the DSL1 head and combos, which offer all-valve Marshall DSL tone in a smaller package, plus a DSL20 combo and head.

    Comments about Marshall DSL1HR 1W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    I've been playing guitar over 30 years, and have always favored Marshall tube amps. I bought the Marshall DSL1 head because I wanted a low powered tube amp for practice at home and for recording, I hooked it up to an Epiphone Valve Jr. speaker cab that I loaded with a Celestion G12M "greenback" and I'm in rock and roll heaven. I like blues, classic rock, hard rock, old school 80's metal... this amp does it all effortlessly. I LOVE this amp. I'm thinking about divorcing my wife and marrying it.

        I love the clean channel! The dirt is true DSL...effects loop sits in the mix perfectly.... Marshall 4/10 makes this a rediculous 1 watt screamer.....reverb is nice too...I kicked on the low power setting and it is still LOUD....get one.....

          Comments about Marshall DSL1HR 1W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

          Took a chance on this and glad I did!! Needed a low watt head for low volume practice and this fits the bill. Cuts down to 1/10th of a watt, and is still pretty darn loud. Great drive and tone coming from this. Built very well and includes the footswitch. F/X loop sounds great, as does the emulated output with headphones. Would recommend this without a second thought, and would buy it again, but don't think that will be needed. Try it out for sure!!!

          Comments about Marshall DSL1HR 1W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

          This is a fun, easy practice amp. The issue is, it doesn't deliver the normal DSL features. The clean channel is nice, but the ultra gain channel doesnt really hit home. It sounds good and has a nice crunch, but it doesnt sustain well even with an OD. The EQ isnt very responsive. With stock tubes, its unusuably bright (i put in JJs)

            I bought the head, perfect for home use practice. 1 watt saturated tube tone driving my cab with celestion 12" 70 80 speaker. Reverb, effects loop, are a plus. Always loved marshall tones. AC DC, Van Halen,
