The DSL40CR delivers the classic Marshall Tube Amp tone, all in an affordable 1x12'' Combo Amp.

The Marshall DSL40CR puts out 40-watts of tube power thru a 12” G-12 v-type speaker. This combo houses an ECC83, and dual EL34 power tubes paired with 3 ECC83 pre-amp tubes to give this amp that classic, crowd-pleasing Marshall tone. With its dual channels, Classic Gain and Ultra Gain, the Marshall DSL40CR can provide you with a wide variety of tones from a shimmering clean to an extremely heavy overdrive and switch between them quickly and easily with the included footswitch. The DSL40CR has two master volumes for those loud solo moments.

Each channel on the Marshall DSL40CR features its own designated volume and gain controls for fast and simple tonal adjustments on each individual channel. The onboard EQ features Bass, Mid, Treble, and Presence controls to tailor your tone to perfection plus a built-in, studio quality Reverb with control to further expand your palette of tones. The DSL40CR has five speaker outlets allowing for a combination of two speakers, the ability to record and a standby function for silent recording meaning it can be taken from the bedroom, to the studio and onto a gig.

For even further tonal shaping, the DSL40CR includes a Tone Shift to scoop your mid-range for those extremely heavy riffs and a Deep switch to provide you with the classic bottom end delivered by the DSL amplifiers. The DSL40CR also features an attenuator switch which will enable you to switch between 40-watts and 20-watts to accommodate your needs, whether you need a little less power for recording in the studio or full power for live performances. The versatility, tone and power of the DSL40CR make this amp the perfect choice for any musician playing any genre in a variety of situations (recording, small to mid-sized performances). Includes footswitch.

Great amp!


So first of all,its pretty light for a good combo. You can dial up about 10 different great tones from clean to mega dirty. The reverb is a bit weak and its a little noisy but versitile and the speaker is great, glad that Marshall listened to feedback about previous speaker and changed it. Havent gigged with it yet but I know I'm gonna be fine. Now looking into 6 button footswitch to go with it.
