Tap into burly Marshall tone with a conveniently compact combo, with the Marshall DSL5CR tube combo amplifier. With per-channel Gain and Volume controls, reverb, and an effects loop, the DSL5CR is ready to rock. 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 DSL5CR's command.
Marshall's DSL5CR is an all-tube, twin-channel tone machine capable of conjuring any classic Marshall sound — past or present. Two ECC83s in the preamp section (in concert with the amp's gain/master volume arrangement) give you stunning tone-shaping mojo, and with an ECC99 in the power amplifier, you've got power that's ideal for everything from the studio to the bedroom. You get a deep switch for defining low-end girth, a rear-panel power switch that reduces the amp's power to a single watt, and a bypassable rear-panel series effects loop.
The Marshall DSL5CR 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 DSL5CR. 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 DSL5CR delivers.
