Tap into burly Marshall tone anywhere from your bedroom to the stage, with the Marshall DSL40CR tube combo amplifier. With per-channel Gain and Volume controls, a dedicated Resonance control, reverb, and an effects loop, the DSL40CR is ready to gig. And with its adjustable power level, you can dial in cranked-amp tones that won't wake your neighbors — or even use the Softube speaker-emulated output for direct recording and monitoring. Marshall even refined the EQ section for extremely versatile tone shaping. From glassy cleans to bone-rattling crunch to blistering high gain, your wish is the Marshall DSL40CR's command.
Marshall's DSL40CR is an all-tube, twin-channel workhorse capable of conjuring any classic Marshall sound — past or present. Four ECC83s in the preamp section (in concert with the amp's gain/master volume arrangement) give you stunning tone-shaping mojo, and with two EL34s in the engine room, you have the volume to rule any club in the world. Sporting the same tubes (minus two EL34s) and feature set as the original DSL100, this little beast has critical upgrades that give you even more control over your sound. A Resonance control (as opposed to the original's fixed deep switch) lets you dial in your preferred amount of low-end girth. You also get studio-grade digital reverb (instead of spring), high and low power settings, and a bypassable rear-panel series effects loop. Marshall has even included a 2-way footswitch for channel switching and reverb on/off.
The Marshall DSL40CR hails from a revered lineage. Marshall introduced the JCM2000 Dual Super Lead (DSL) series amps in 1997. Right from the get-go, these all-tube monsters enjoyed enthusiastic approval by guitarists and the press alike, forming the backlines of top acts in all musical genres and bludgeoning audiences worldwide for a decade before being replaced by Marshall's JVM series (a musical powerhouse in its own right). Considered the go-to rock amp by many tone-savvy guitarists, there is considerable pent-up demand for Dual Super Leads. And thus, Marshall is proud to introduce the new-and-improved DSL series.
Marshall has teamed up with software mavens Softube to create exceptional tones in their CODE series of amplifiers, and they've joined forces again on the DSL40CR. Its line output features an accurate emulation of Marshall's iconic 1960 speaker cabinet, allowing you to plug directly into a recording chain with confidence. Guitarists at Music Experience love flexible recording options, and the DSL40CR delivers.
The versatile DSLTM series delivers legendary all valve Marshall tone suitable for all playing environments. From shimmering cleans to punchy distorted overdrives, the DSL allows you to easily flex the sound to your playing styles.DSL offers a diverse range of features across the entire series including power reduction, studio quality reverb and two footswitchable channels. Combined this means that no matter your environment, you can really experiment and release your alter ego. The DSL40CRTM has been designed with a 12” G-12 v-type speaker for those who need exceptional tone and flexibility. With rich functionality including the ability to move between two sounds within each gain channel, players can experiment and release their personality through sound.
Using the individual reverb for the two footswitchable gain channels, FX loop and tone shift controls you can experiment with your style.
The DSL40 has two master volumes for those loud solo moments.
The DSL40 has five speaker outputs giving you plenty of flexibility and the ability to record, with a standby function for silent recording as well. It can be taken from the bedroom, to the studio and onto a gig.
