I am not in a band, but I take part in jam outs regularly. Every one I know that has heard this amp- ranging from very experienced musicians, guitar teachers, enthusiasts and people with not a drop of musical interest have loved the tone of this beast. I played this alongside an Egnator Rebel 30 most notably and became even more content with my purchase. Being able to switch from 15w to 7.5 w is a very cool bonus as well. The lack of an effects loop is not a problem. I've always preferred going straight in anyways, so I can't see that as being a con. The bass response is awesome, very throaty. I play through a 2004 MIM strat modded to a HSS, roll the presence and treb around 10 o clock, gain at 9 o clock, bass at 3 o clock through ultra gain-I can play for hours. Want cleans? Roll back the volume, switch to bridge, done. The reverb is great but not very apparent. That's why I still use the rv-3. This review is terrible because my phone is typing ultra slow but you get the point. One of the finest amps in this price range for sure

I was excited to get my first tube amp, but I was sorely disappointed at this Marshall product. Descriptions and reviews on this amp stated that you can get a classic rock crunch on the classic gain channel, for an AC/DC or Zeppelin sound as an example. I found the classic channel had nice cleans, but I had to turn the gain up to 10 and the volume almost as high to get anything close to a classic rock crunch. On the other hand, the ultra gain channel had a very large amount of distortion even at level 2 and therefore couldn't be regulated down to make up for the lack of crunch on the classic gain. Plus anything past 5 on the ultra gain was too muddy in my opinion. Lastly, I used this amp to practice maybe 5 times over a period of 2 weeks, and then it simple stopped producing any sound. I returned it to Guitar Center for a refund. I was so looking forward to having my first Marshall tube amp, and will probably not look at another Marshall product after this experience.

Buy the 40C...it's worth the extra money

Comments about Marshall DSL15C 15W All-Tube 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I don't get Marshall's thinking on this one. I currently own an original DSL100 from the 90's and a new (reissue) DSL40C. In my opinion, this amp has the worst of those amps. I love the Clean Crunch Mode - (Gary Moore and Joe Bonamassa's favorite mode) and the Red 1 mode. The 15C has the exact opposite. Additionally, as others have mentioned, the digital reverb is next to useless on any of the reissues (that includes the 40 and 100) Drop an extra hundred and get 10x the tone and an amp you will struggle to outgrow (DSL 40C) - and don't be afraid of the power, the 40C sounds rather pleasant at low volume.

    Comments about Marshall DSL15C 15W All-Tube 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

    I did not care for the Red Channel on this amp at all. The distortion was fizzy,and sounded terrible. I replaced the speaker, and also the tubes which helped. I ultimately got rid of it. If you turn either channels gain up at all it compresses and sounds bad. Too much gain on the Red Channel. Reverb is terrible as well. I liked the size, and wattage of this amp but tha'ts about it.

      Used it only in my living maybe an hour a week. Died a few times but leaving alone over night it worked the next day. Died for good the other day. Assume it's tube issue but service is non existent and tubes are only covered for 90 days.

            I've never had a Marshal before. After using this one I ask myself why did I wait so long. Great for small venues and large. brings out the best sounding any guitar. Stop thinking about it, buy it!

              The amplifier sounds great and the low power options really let you get those valves cooking without blasting out the neighbors. Still, I wouldn't mind a standby switch and an effects loop. For the price, these seem like reasonable requests. Also, the reverb is so weak that even turned up all the way you can barely detect it. I initially thought it was broken. Its the reverb that lost them the fifth start.

                LIKE SOME OTHERS, I LOVE THE AMP TONE OVER-ALL BUT IT SEEMED TO HAVE A BIT TOO MUCH GAIN/DISTORTION ESPECIALLY ON THE ULTRA GAIN CHANNEL FOR MY TASTE. SO I SWITCHED THE PRE-AMP TUBES TO SOVTEK 12AX7WA (LOWER GAIN) PRE-AMP TUBES & IT MADE A DIFFERENCE. APARANTLY THE PRE-AMP TUBES ARE HIGH GAIN TUBES. I DISCOVERED A FEW YEARS AGO WHEN I PUT STANDARD 12AX7 PRE-AMP TUBES IN MY AMERICAN MADE FENDER HOT ROD DELUXE AMP IT HAD DISTORTION ON THE CLEAN CHANNEL & AFTER REPLACING THEM WITH THE 12AX7WA TUBES THE CLEAN CHANNEL NO LONGER HAD DISTORTION. THE MARSHALL STILL HAS SOME DISTORTION WITH 12AX7WA PRE-AMP TUBES IN CHANNEL 1 (CLASSIC GAIN) CHANNEL IF YOU CRANK UP THE GAIN BUT NOT AS MUCH AS WITH THE ORIG. ECC83 PRE-AMP TUBES IT CAME WITH, & FOR ME THERE IS SUFFICIENT GAIN ON THE ULTRA GAIN (CHANNEL 2) WITH THE SOVTEK 12AX7A PRE-AMP TUBES, SO IF YOU FEEL THERE IS TOO MUCH DISTORTION TRY SOME LOWER GAIN PRE-AMP TUBES, IT WORKED FOR ME!
