    Product Description

    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 may well recognise the DSL40CR; its predecessor, the DSL40C, proved itself to be one our most popular amps of all time. Several tweaks simply add to this classic amp's versatility and playability!

    It's now loaded with a single 12" Celestion V-type speaker for a brilliantly clear sound that has alluringly vintage overtones. 40 watts is a big step up from the smaller models in the range, offering punchier, pronounced levels that'll perform brilliantly at gigging volumes. Thanks to the power switching options, you can make the most of the DSL40CR's gutsy tone at lower volumes, making it an incredibly powerful practice amp too! 

    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 also features presence 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 can also choose between two reverb voicings - classic or ultra.

    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!

    I have had lots of different combos in the past but nothing comes near to the tone of this combo it is excellent, i use it with the Boss GT100 and having the ability to use the GT100 effects on four wire send and return using the Marshall DSL 40 valve pre amps instead of the GT100 pre amps sound more natural, i am blown away with the sound.

    Mr Alex Brabbins14th Mar 2021

    Absolutely amazing tone from theis amp, the spanky clean channel is just superb and takes pedals really well and the overdrive channel is fantastic with that classic Marshall sound, from a subtle crunch to all out metal this amp does it all. For a 1×12 combo it's seriously loud too!!

    This amplifier has the most beautiful sound on both its clean and ‘dirty’ settings. The additional tone controls contribute to this full, warm and robust sound

    Mr Michael Booth1st Mar 2020

    Classic Marshall tones with clean, crunch and lead channels, Low volume option and emulated out are a bonus. My only complaint is it doesn't come with a protective cover like the American rivals do.
