The Dual Super Lead amps have long been a staple of the Marshall range, since launching in the '90s to great critical acclaim. Known for their ultra-versatile sound as well as their surprising proficiency with high-gain sounds, they eventually came to be hailed as a modern classic. Now Marshall have unveiled the latest generation of DSLs - offering everything you loved about the originals but with several tweaks aimed at the modern player!
Those familiar with the DSL legacy may have noticed that the DSL20CR is a brand new addition to the range; it's loaded with a single 12" Celestion Seventy-80 speaker for a smooth, accurate response that can cope with being pushed a little further! 20 watts is a big step up from the 5 watt models, offering punchier, pronounced levels that may well do the trick for small-venue gigging!
As with the other models, you've got two channels at your disposal: classic gain and ultra gain, both of which do exactly what they say on the tin! The classic gain is warm but clear, and extremely responsive to adjustments, whereas the ultra gain allows you to tip into that full-pelt Marshall distortion that's so widely adored. This model, however, introduces presense and resonance controls, allowing yet more tonal tweaking; tame the Marshall drive to suit your own style, or use them to push your cleans into uncharted twangy territory!
You've also got the same Softube-designed emulated output, which allows top-class cab simulation for direct-out recording. You can even disconnect the 12" speaker or switch the amp to standby for fully silent recording or practicing!
