The DSL Series – a revered tonal heritage
The Marshall DSL5C 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. Marshall hears you, and is proud to introduce the new-and-improved DSL series.
A 5-watt tone beast
Marshall’s DSL5C is an all-tube, twin-channel tone machine capable of conjuring any classic Marshall sound – past or present. Three 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. Sporting the same feature set as the original DSL100, Marshall has gone on to fit this little beastie with critical upgrades that give you even more control over your sound. You still 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 FX loop.
Two channels and all the trimmings
The Marshall DSL5C sports two footswitchable channels: Classic Gain and Ultra Gain. With the DSL5C, you can go from glassy Plexi-esque cleans, to JCM800-style snarl, hot-mod 2203, face-melting high gain – and everything in-between. To shape all this delectable Marshall tone, you get flexible shared 4-way EQ (Treble, Middle, Bass) juiced with the thoughtful inclusion of a Tone Shift button – ideal for scooped modern metal mojo. The DSL5C is ready to rock. Are you?
