    Comments about Marshall DSL40C Limited Edition Vintage 40W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    I bought this Marshall DSL40C amplifier for the purpose of reamping in my home studio. I prefer to use real amplifiers instead of plugins because I believe they sound better. This little amp delivers that oldschool vintage Marshall tone. I'm glad I bought it, and would recommend it to anyone using it for this purpose. I don't plan to use it as a gigging amp, so I cannot say how durable it would be in that capacity. However, it does seem well made, so I don't see why there would be any issues using it for that purpose. It does get quite loud when pushed.

          Comments about Marshall DSL40C Limited Edition Vintage 40W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

          The Marshall DSL40C produces the sound I have listened to all of my life. Growing up on Jimi Hendrix, the Who, Allman Brothers Band, Eric Clapton, etc. the Marshall tone is unmistakable. This particular amp carries that traditional tube quality sound but includes an important feature for me - a drop switch to 20 watt that I can use when playing in my condo or flip it to full power for the rehearsal studio. When it is all said and done, playing is about sound quality. Sure, I can play my Gibson Les Paul Standard on another amp, but I will never be able to produce the sound quality without the proper amp. Of course, there are other quality tube amps on the market, not taking anything away from these others, but the one sound I remains clearly recognizable to me is the Marshall. Oh, and the vintage cover is cool.

              I've been a huge fan of Marshall stacks and half stacks for decades. Didn't want to carry that monsterous set up anymore so I looked into this based on its reviews. I honestly couldn't be happier! I did change out the speaker for a Celestion cream back as I prefer a mellower tone but that's my taste and it doesn't take anything away from the amp itself. Haven't messed around with the effects loop capabilities yet but I'm sure that will work fine. Guitar center rocked the price hands-down easily the best deal!

                This is an amp that will be appreciated by a novice to a touring professional musician.
                It is a Marshall Amp with "the" Marshall sound. It also has great cleans.
                The price is rediculously low for an amp of this caliber.

                  Great amp. Sadly I had to return mine for another one. The one I got looked amazing. Turned it on and noticed a popping and a horrible wind noise coming from the clean channel. I contacted Marshall and they had told me to have it replaced. And the effects loop wouldnt work if the Channel and Reverb pedal was on.. Maybe I got a lemon lets hope so because its an amazing amp. The amp really sings. A lot of reviews that I have read about it was saying it was muddy when doing runs etc: However this is not true, if you dont play clear and hit every note it does get muddy. This amp will show your flaws.

                  Clean channel was amazing sounds very clear and crisp.
                  Crunch/clean channel was great very clear and chunky!!
                  Lead 1 channel gain at just 3-4 is enough gain for anyone.
                  Lead 2 channel gain at 4-6 is perfect for 80's rock and metal.

                  Reverb VERY thin and VERY weak! Defiantly not this amps strong point.

                  Very good amp for someone wanting the power that you can use inside and outside your home.

                  If it wasnt for my clean channel popping and hissing etc Id still have the amp.
