The Marshall DSL1CR 1-Watt Valve Guitar Amplifier Combo is an amazing little combo that punches well above its weight and is befitting of the Marshall logo. From the sparkling cleans to aggressive overdriven snarl, the DSL1CR is great for those seeking a versatile combo that is great for practise and recording at home or on the road. Boasting built-in studio quality digital reverb, and a series FX Loop for integrating additional outboard effects processors, you have everything needed to hit the ground running.
Classic Marshall tones
The DSL1CR is honoured with an all-valve complement, which gives the amp a mighty output in a diminuitive size. In the pre-amp you'll find a pair of ECC83 valves, which generate an enviable energy infused with warmth. In the power amp you'll find an ECC82 valve, which delivers the output with a generous punch.
Front panel control
The classic gold front panel control layout offers ready access to a bevy of tone shaping options. There are two channels to choose from using the Channel Select button, Classic Gain and Ultra Gain. The Classic Gain channel features a Volume pot and delivers the coveted aggression of a JCM800 amp. The Ultra-Gain channel features a Volume pot, and an additional Gain pot to really ramp up the juice, perfect for those who like to take their tones to the extreme.
Both channels benefit from the passive EQ section, with Bass/Middle/Treble controls for selectively shaping specific frequency bands. The corresponding Tone Shift button reconfigures the pre-amp mid frequencies when activated, making it perfect for metal styles, and a great addition to this high gain monster.
Rear panel connectivity
Across the rear panel you'll find a selection of connections that open up the amp. As well as the 1 x 16 Ohm speaker cabinet, you'll find an FX Loop Send and Return for connecting external FX processors. The Emulated-Out jack provides a line level output for headphones or connecting to a mixer. The emulated output has been designed using Softube-designed studio cab emulation. You can rest assured that your headphone/recording signal offers the utmost fidelity for practise or recording.
The Marshall DSL1CR Combo is equipped with a Celestion Eight-15 speaker, which translates the sweet tones of the amp beautifully. The breadth and depth of your tone is delivered with vigour, and for such a low output you'll be dazzled by the crystal-clear clarity of the DSL1CR. From thick low-end through bouncing mids to searing highs, the Eight-15 will do you proud.
Classic Marshall design
The Marshall DSL1CR 1-Watt Valve Guitar Amplifier Combo adheres to the classic black and gold Marshall design we've all come to know and love. The solid enclosure is covered in hardwearing black tolex and black corner braces. The gold front panel complements the brilliant white Marshall logo.
