    Marshall DSL40C Guitar Combo Amplifier (40 Watts, 1x12") Product Description

    The Marshall DSL40C is a sturdy, gig-ready 40-watt workhorse boasting two EL34 power valves, a Celestion speaker, and the exact same front and rear panel features as the DSL100H -- including the Triode (Half Power) option which drops the DSL40C's output to 20 watts.

    Combine the world-renowned EL34-driven power stage of the 1959 Super Lead Plexi (SLP) head with a dual channel valve preamp, giving you two footswitchable super leads in one. Then add a studio-quality digital spring reverb, plus extra preamp gain that can take you into JCM800 2203 territory and far beyond, and you get the DSL: Dual Super Lead. The DSL40C delivers famed Marshall tone in a 40-watt, 1x12" combo form, housing a custom-voiced Celestion speaker.

    The DSL40C features two footswitchable channels (footswitch supplied) named 'Classic Gain' and 'Ultra Gain' -- each with two modes, selectable via a front-panel button. As their names imply, each channel has a very different character. Classic Gain takes you from a 1959 style clean to the snarl of a JCM800 2203, and everything in between via its Clean/Crunch mode button. 'Ultra Gain,' on the other hand, takes you from a hot-rodded 2203 vibe to an even higher gain response with additional mid-boost, via its Lead 1/Lead 2, mode switch.

    Both channels share a passive three-band EQ with controls for Bass, Middle and Treble. The Equalization section also features a 'Tone Shift' button which, when activated (pushed in), shifts out the mid frequencies -- making the amp ideal for brutal, modern metal tones, especially when combined with high gain settings. Each channel also has its own individual reverb level control for the built-in studio quality digital spring reverb, This effect can be switched on/off via the supplied footswitch.

    In the power section, you'll find controls for resonance and presence. Resonance adds a variable bass boost to your sound without muddying it up, while the presence adds high end. The ability to select either full output power or half-power via the Pentode/Triode switch on the rear panel, adds further to your DSL's already impressive feature set. The tonal and gain versatility makes the DSL40C a superb and flexible performance tool for today's most demanding playing situations.

    About the Dual Super Lead Series

    When the JCM2000 Dual Super Lead (DSL) series of amps was introduced in 1997, they were received with open arms and glowing compliments by the guitar loving public and press alike. In fact one of the biggest American guitar magazines described the DSL100 as possibly "the best Marshall ever. It combines the best tonal qualities and features of both modern and vintage Marshall amps in one package." After an extremely successful and long life, the JCM2000 series was replaced by the JVM series in 2007, which has also gone onto great success and critical acclaim. That said, there's still a great deal of respect and demand for Dual Super Leads, with one of the UK's most popular guitar magazines recently referring to the DSL100 as "the go-to rock amp."
