  • The DSL Series - a revered tonal heritage
  • A 100-watt tone beast

The DSL Series - a revered tonal heritage

The Marshall DSL100H hails from a revered lineage. Marshall introduced the JCM2000 Dual Super Lead (DSL) series amps in 1997. Right from the get-go, these all-tube monsters enjoyed enthusiastic approval by guitarists and the press alike, forming the backlines of top acts in all musical genres and bludgeoning audiences worldwide for a decade before being replaced by Marshall's JVM series (a musical powerhouse in its own right). Considered the go-to rock amp by many tone-savvy guitarists, there is considerable pent-up demand for Dual Super Leads. Marshall hears you, and is proud to introduce the new-and-improved DSL Series.

A 100-watt tone beast

Marshall's DSL100H is an all-tube, twin-channel beast capable of conjuring any classic Marshall sound - past or present. Four ECC83s in the preamp section (in concert with the amp's gain/master volume arrangement) give you stunning tone-shaping mojo, and with four EL34s in the engine room, you've got the volume to rule any stage in the world. Sporting, in fact, precisely the same tube complement and feature set as the original DSL100, Marshall has gone on to fit this monster with critical upgrades that give you even more control over your sound. You now get a resonance control (as opposed to the original's fixed deep switch), letting you dial in your preferred amount of low-end girth. You also get studio-grade digital reverb (instead of spring), a rear-panel pentode/triode switch that drops the amp's power to a club-and-studio-friendly 50 watts, and a bypassable rear-panel series FX loop. Marshall's even included a 2-way footswitch for channel switching and reverb on/off.

Two channels and all the trimmings

The Marshall DSL100H sports two footswitchable channels: classic gain and ultra-gain. Each channel boasts two modes: clean/crunch and lead 1/lead 2, respectively. With the DSL100H, you can go from glassy Plexi-esque cleans, to JCM800-style snarl, hot-mod 2203, face-melting high gain - and everything in between. To shape all this delectable Marshall tone, you get flexible shared 5-way EQ (treble, middle, bass, resonance, and presence) juiced with the thoughtful inclusion of a tone shift button - ideal for scooped modern metal mojo. The DSL100H is ready to rock. Are you?

Powerful with such a great tone. The only half stack I'll need to play shows. Sweetwater helped me out soo much

Marshall DSL 100H

This is a must have, go to amp!

This amp does it all! From clean as a whistle, to rocken' and rollen', to full out fire breathing monster. I saw that it was made in Vietnam and was a little put off, but don't be. I've been playing and using Marshall's, Fender's, Carvin V-3, (full stack), Line-6, Peavey 6505+, etc. for over 40 years and this amp is worth every penny. This is not an entry level amp. Although it is priced that way now. I wouldn't wait too long if your in the market for a new amp. I can't imagine they will stay at this price too long.

Marshall DSL100H

Item throws out more power than I need. Seems to be working fine. I finally got me a Marshall !!

Best Head for the money

All around high end head with a smooth clean tone that will blow you away. Select the effects switch and you have a overdrive/distortion sound that will knock the walls down. No need to add a floor of pedals, with the selection this Marshall head has, you will find the right sound to fit every type of playing. The volume on this head will break ear drums. You cannot find a better head for the money.
