Overview

The Marshall DSL100H tube guitar amp head has footswitchable Classic Gain and Ultra channels, each boasting two modes - Clean/Crunch and Lead 1/Lead 2 respectively. These will take you from Plexi-style, pristine clean to JCM800 snarl, hot-rodded 2203, high gain lead and all points in-between. The flexibility of the shared 5-way EQ (Treble, Middle, Bass, Resonance and Presence) section is increased further by a Mid-Shift button - perfect for modern metal brutality.

A series FX loop on the rear panel (bypassable via an on/off switch) adds to the DSL100H's professional flexibility, as does the Pentode (Full Power)/Triode (Half Power) switch which drops the power-amp's output to 50-Watts. It also changes the amp's tonal character as Triode mode produces a smoother, less aggressive sound.

Features
  • Two footswitchable channels - Classic Gain & Ultra Gain
  • Two Modes per channel for extra flexibility
  • Footswitchable, studio-quality, digital Reverb with Level control for each channel
  • Shared 5-way EQ - Treble, Middle, Bass, Presence & Resonance
  • Mid-Shift button adds to the amp's tonal flexibility
  • Pentode/Triode switch to drop power down from 100W to 50W
  • Bypassable series FX loop
  • 2-way footswitch supplied

    Comments about Marshall DSL100H 100W All-Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    I'm in a thrash metal band called Radiatrix and use this head for all shows. It's more than heavy enough for thrash and it can obviously get the classic Marshall rock tones. The only thing about this amp that I don't like is that you can't switch from clean to crunch or from lead 1 to lead 2 with the footswitch.

    It broke

    Comments about Marshall DSL100H 100W All-Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    It broke as soon as I bought it, meaning I plugged it in and the motherboard melted. Guitar center couldn't fix it, Marshall had to. I had to go to a third party company about 45 minutes from where I live. When it worked, this amp was amazing.

    Comments about Marshall DSL100H 100W All-Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    I always wanted a Marshall amp and finally i was able to get this one, even at entry level it's a great value for the price.
    Yes it sounds a bit muddy if you exaggerate with the resonance control , but at least is controllable.
    the reverb is a whole different issue.
    Very week sounding especially in ultra mode.
    But overall a very good product.

    Definitely NOT the JCM2000 protege

    By 

    from Denver, CO

    Comments about Marshall DSL100H 100W All-Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    Maybe I had a unit that was poorly biased? But I don't have time to change tubes and re-bias. I need something that rocks right out of the box. The gain channel on this amp had zero warmth. I found it sterile and completely unusable. The clean channel was good like you would expect from Marshall. The digital reverb was very very weak. I've owned two JCM2000 units over the years, and bought this one as a replacement for one that died. The gain channel sounds nothing like the JCM2000. All tubes fired up and working fine. TRY BEFORE YOU BUY

    She laid down........ Hard

    By 

    from Sring Hill Ks

    Comments about Marshall DSL100H 100W All-Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    Umm. Well as a kid I had a Marshall a really really old one from the sixty's it was only like six hundred bucks and all it gave me was an extremely loud clean tone. It worked for ever and ever and I abused it in every club in the three state area. I got this one home and was like hmm clean tone number 2 is cool for blues. Reverb is alright. Umm the gain channels aren't tight and the bottom end is floppy like bad its muddy and awful sounding. And two weeks later it laid down. I was so disappointed with it I took it back to C.F at the O.P Ks location and he ordered me a Used Carvin V3. Now that is a superior piece of equipment. I know its an American amp but you can run EL34's and its got three channels you can actually use the clean bluesy and metal channels all with the foot switch and none of the channels suck and its used and it hasn't laid down not once. excellent Customer Service and I played this amp in the store for an hour before I bought it I brought it back in and I don't even remember him asking me what was wrong with it.

    Marshall DSL100 H 100 Watt Tube Amp head

    By 

    from Georgia

    Comments about Marshall DSL100H 100W All-Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    Very Nice Marshall Head. I wanted something that would allow me to get the raw power of the 100 Watt head without getting another JVM series Amp or a Soldano. Around the home in particular. I had to use a Marshall Power brake to glow the tubes so I could get the right sound but dial back the volume. With the DSL and the new pentode/triode switch on the back,it allows you to knock it back from 100 watts to 50 watts, I don't need the power brake on this rig. And I get the level of saturation/distortion and reverb I want. The raw power and grit. That great Marshall sound. And with all the effects pedals I have and normally use, so far, I haven't used a single one. I love the punch of this amp. I play Strats, Les Pauls and PRS primarily, all sound great. The design of the head is simple and reminds me of my Soldano. I'm extremely pleased with this head, and especially with the price. And again, with Guitar Center. Great Customer Service Department.

    Am I Missing Something?

    By 

    from Oregon, USA

    Comments about Marshall DSL100H 100W All-Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    Granted, I play blues, classic rock & americana style - so I am looking for a sweeter, warm semi-clean, and moderate overdrive tones. I bought this amp bbecause I wanted an EL34 tube amp and the reviews were positive. When I received this, I played it maybe 5 minutes, back in the box it went. Very this, shallow, and tinny sounding. Might be good for super high levels of distortion, but horrible (imo) for anything that requires sensitivity, depth or sweetness. Lookj elsewhere for refined tone.

    great amp for the price

    By 

    from camden nj

    Comments about Marshall DSL100H 100W All-Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    This is a simple 2 channel amp with 2 variations in each channel.The clean is pretty good for blues because you can dial in some gain to get a little crunch. Hit the select button and that puts you into a jcm 800 tone. The second channel is your gain channel which gives you the modern metal sound. When hitting the select switch the sound gets a little muddy. I've been searching for a great tone with the cheaper tube amps out there( tried almost all of them) and this one delivers that marshall tone. This thing is loud!

    All you need!

    By 

    from Tucson, Az

    Comments about Marshall DSL100H 100W All-Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    This guitar head is all you need! The dual lead is nice but if they just had put that on a footswitch it would have been over the top. It has enough power that you can jam at home (with the triode switch/ pentode switch) or on stage with a 8 ohm cab and you will never pass 5 on the dial and the louder it gets the more the tubes scream. The best part about this head is that you can dial it in for any type of music that you play from Metal to country, The 2 lead switch is over the top for metal. I had a rocktron gainiac 2 and it never came close to this level of distortion. For the money you can't beat this head for sound, power, and versatility. The construction kind of sucks because they put a vent right on top for heat control. Other than that Marshall has another winner.
