The Marshall DSL20CR combo amplifier delivers 20 watts of pure valve tone in a portable package. This all-tube, twin-channel amp offers Marshall's revered Classic Gain and Ultra Gain voicings, allowing guitarists to summon crisp clean tones, vintage overdrive, and modern high-gain saturation. With high and low power modes, the DSL20CR provides appropriate volume for any setting—from home practice to club gigs. The DSL20CR features an innovative emulated speaker output, which accurately reproduces the sound of Marshall's legendary 1960 cabinet for direct recording or silent practice.

Adjustable Power Tailors Tone to Any Environment

The DSL20CR's adjustable power settings deliver authentic all-valve tone and feel at any volume. This groundbreaking technology adjusts power to the valves instead of simply turning off stages, allowing the amp to remain touch-sensitive and articulate. High power mode unleashes the DSL20CR's full 20 watts of vintage British attitude, perfect for live performance. Low power mode provides a more manageable 10 watts of volume ideal for home use.

Softube Speaker Emulator Enables Direct Recording

In partnership with acclaimed amp modelers Softube, Marshall equipped the DSL20CR with an emulated speaker output. This output accurately reproduces the sound of Marshall's renowned 1960 speaker cabinet, allowing for direct recording or silent practice by connecting the DSL20CR to an audio interface. Guitarists can capture huge, authentic Marshall tones in any recording environment without waking the neighbors or triggering noise complaints.

Refined EQ and Reverb Expand Tonal Palette

Marshall refined the DSL20CR's EQ circuitry to provide even greater control over tone. A studio-grade digital reverb adds dimension and spaciousness. These enhancements, combined with the DSL20CR's Gain, Volume, and Resonance controls, offer a wealth of tonal customization.

All-Valve Design and Celestion Speaker Pump Out Iconic Tone

Under the hood, three ECC83 preamp tubes and two EL34 power tubes provide the all-valve design responsible for the DSL20CR's authentic British voice. A Celestion Seventy-80 loudspeaker accurately reproduces each harmonic detail and overtone, for the full Marshall experience. From glassy cleans to searing leads, the DSL20CR sings with the tone that shaped rock music.
