This thing has tons of tone. I've had it for a couple of years and this thing pumps out tone. Clean tones are loud, crisp and bring out every note of your guitar. Turn the gain up and switch to a lead channel that can give you any kinds of tone, from heavy metal to bluesy riffs this thing can handle it. Definatly recommended.
I have bought so many amps that my wife is about ready to leave me. Fenders,Crates,B-52 AT,and so on. All this time I was really wanting a Marshall JCM2000. However, the head cost so much money plus the cabinet. I just thought it was way too much money. Then something great happened and allowed me too get both head and 1960 cab. This amp is simply great on the clean and dirty channel. In fact, all I use is a tube overdrive and delay. There is really no need for a distortion pedal unless you want really heavy sound. I played the new JVM and was really impressed by it's sound. It was just too much money for me to buy. I use a Fender Delux American Strat, Tele, and a Carvin CT6M. This amp will take the paint off your wall if you turn it all the way up. Save your money and get this amp.
This amp may only go to 10, but i really never have to go past 5. The deep setting gives this thing such a great sound. As far as the price goes- you get what you pay for. If you can afford it - i highly recommend it. This is my 7th and last amp because it will be responsible for my going deaf, but i'll have a blast on the way.
This amp, by far, surpasses any other name brand from it's looks down to it's raw thunderous sound. Marshall has been the staple of Rock from the time it was born & continues to fill the worlds stages full of heart pounding thunder & balls to the walls sound...
There comes a time when guitar players must reckon with their equipment. It's not a religous thing, but one of utility. Guitar amps are complex machines - and offer to translate the essence of the guitar into something magical. The Marshall DSL100 head is a timepiece for rock n' roll. Yes it's expensive, and yes there are more technologically advanced amps on the market - but like Harley Davidson motorcycles, this machine has soul. Do yourself a favor, play this amp for the first time and your guitar virginity will be taken away by something special.
This amp has the only classic tube sound (in the price range). I though that the features would not be there, but it suprised me with the two channels plus two modes on each channel! If you run a fx loop through this like my sun did at GC you can sound like Hendrx and go right back to a Zeppelin influenced one at the flick of a switch!
The Marshall DSL 100 is a VERY versatile amp, even with 2 channels! On the green channel, you can go from classic cleans to ACDC style crunch. The red channel takes you into heavy metal territory with more gain than you'll need. The deep switch can add a ton of bottom end to your sound. The key to these amps is to play them LOUD. This is not a bedroom amp.
The Marshall JCM 2000 DSL has one of THE most amazing amp CLEAN and DISTORTION tones. Beautiful. The only thing that could be better would be to have a footswitch to turn the effects loop on and off.
I've owned loads of amps, and I keep finding myself coming back to the Marshall JCM 2000 DSL 100. The cleans are great (at times) and the higher gain settings can range from ACDC to Hatebreed! The deep switch really helps this amp get brutal! I love it! My only drawback is the single EQ for both channels. I was never played a show dissatisfied though. Marshall definitely knows what they're doing!
I love it! it has a great tone and an awesome distortion i love the vintage deistortion it has. its a very classic amp i love the clean channel it gives great tones and with a Gibson LP you get the tone you need
