Marshall's DSL40CR 40W Combo guitar amplifier is a versatile 1x12" combo amp bursting with authentic all-valve tone. Part of Marshall's updated DSL series, it has innovative features for players at every level. The DSL40CR's adjustable power output provides rich, articulate tube sound from bedroom to stage volume. Emulated headphone and line outs deliver 1960 cabinet modeling for silent practice. Reverb, resonance and independent channel volumes offer a wealth of tone-shaping options. Refined EQ provides greater tonal flexibility. The DSL40CR is a formidable amp for novice and pro players alike.

Adjustable Power Output

The DSL40CR's adjustable power settings allow playing at any volume while retaining Marshall's signature all-valve tone and feel. Advanced technology adjusts power to the valves rather than bypassing them, enabling the amp to stay dynamic and articulate at any output level.

Emulated Output

The DSL40CR's emulated headphone and line outs provide incredibly accurate modeling of Marshall's iconic 1960 cabinet for silent practice. Developed with modeling experts Softube, the emulated output gives players Marshall tone without sacrificing the experience of pushing air.

Reverb, Resonance and Volume Controls

The DSL40CR offers built-in spring reverb and resonance controls for shaping tone. Independent channel volume controls provide balance between clean and overdrive channels. This versatility makes the DSL40CR suitable for a wide range of musical styles.

Refined EQ

Marshall partnered with Softube to refine the DSL40CR's EQ circuitry, resulting in greater tonal flexibility. The 3-band EQ, presence and resonance controls allow crafting tone precisely as desired for any genre.
