Taking its inspiration from great amplifiers of the past but very much a modern amp in itself, the Marshall DSL40C offers four modes with a valve power amp section and plenty of versatility. This limited edition black version gives the DSL40C a deliciously dark appearance. All panels and controls (except for the power switch) are black, never has an amp looked so slick!
Powerful sound capability
The Marshall DSL40C features classic gain and ultra gain channels, allowing for varying types and levels of distortion. The classic gain channel is capable of smooth clean tones and features a crunch switch to kick the amp into giving you cutting overdrive. The ultra gain channel has two different voicings, lead 1 and lead 2, to allow for even more tonal variation. A footswitch is included, letting you change channels and toggle reverb on/off while playing. whatever you r playing style or desired sound, the Marshall DSL40C has you covered.
EQ is shared between the channels with bass, middle, treble and a presence control on offer to shape the tone to your exact specification. A wider variety of sounds are made available through several other EQ options on the Marshall DSL40C. A "tone shift" switch changes the voicing of the mid range in the amplifier and a resonance control changes the bass frequency response, this gives you extensive control over the sound which is ideal for adapting to the acoustics of a venue.
The valve pre-amp stage includes 3, EL34 tubes and the power-amp stage, ECC83 and 2 x EL34's for great full-bodied tone while a pentode / triode switch that lets you lower output for excellent tone at lower volume levels so that you can get tat full-blast sound without deafening your fellow musicians.
As you would expect from Marshall, this is an excellent valve head with tons of tonal versatility, relentless power and years of guaranteed top-class performance all wrapped up into a stunning limited edition dark finish cabinet.
