Taking inspiration from great amplifiers of the past - but very much a modern amp - the Marshall DSL15C Guitar Amplifier Combo offers two channels with a valve power amp section, tone-sculpting at your fingertips, and a sublime Celestion G12E-60 speaker to deliver a robust yet undeniably smooth output.
Raw Marshall tones
The Marshall DSL15C features classic gain and ultra-gain channels, allowing for varying types and levels of distortion. Back off the gain on the classic channel to get sparkling cleans or crank it up on the “ultra” channel to get powerful distortion in classic Marshall-style. A Marshall 91004 two-button footswitch is included with the amplifier, allowing you to switch between channels, and activate/deactivate the built-in reverb to enable a truly dynamic performance.
EQ is shared between both channels with bass, middle, treble and a presence control on offer. Two tonal switches also sit on the front panel of the Marshall DSL15C, "deep" and "tone shift". The deep switch gives you extra response in the lower frequencies while the tone shift button changes the character and definition in the mid-range to offer variation in your sound.
The pre-amp is stocked with 3 x ECC83 valves, which ensures an enviable purity with regard to warmth and tonal power. The more you drive up the gain with these beauties, the more you tap into that sweet overdriven tone of your dreams. The power amp stage features a s single ECC83, with a pair of 6V6s to give your tone the ability to soar above the mix so that you can really stand out. Not only that, but an integrated pentode/triode switch lets you lower the output whilst still retaining excellent tone at lower volume levels - perfect for rocking out at home and in the studio.
Solid Marshall build
As we've come to expect from Marshall, the cabinet is built to endure and provides the perfect housing for the speaker and electronics. Black tolex provides a cool and protective shield for the cab, whilst the classic styling of the gold control panel, black speaker grille cloth, and the instantly recognisable "Marshall" logo all adorn the face of the DSL15C.
All-in-all, the Marshall DSL15C Guitar Amplifier Combo is an excellent amplifier with plenty of power to deliver that great Marshall tone. Whether you’re practising at home, jamming with friends, recording in the studio, or hitting the stage, you’ll wonder how you got by without this dynamic little powerhouse in your arsenal.
