Congrats on the new/used amp and welcome back to the tube world
Yep now I’ve got tubes to go with my kemper and Helix Stomp
Yep,read all that and it sounds good.My experience is otherwise? Three times let down with three new amps !! Went back to UK made 50 DSL no problems at all. Shame really as I liked the 40C.
Many congrats. She looks very cool.
You cannot beat a DSL40C for all round, no worries gigging.
Hey Mickey Bill here I have a dsl 40c amp. Any advice will be much appreciated. I turn my amp on let it warm up. So it's on but no sound. Is it a blown fuse or bad tubes.
Is the standby on?
Both front panel switches should be in the same orientation in order to play.
Yes it sure is.
The weird thing is . It was working I picked up my guitar and was turning the volume knob on the guitar up thinking that the volume knob was going bad then it just stop making noise at all.
So I plugged my guitar into a smaller crate amp I have. And the guitar was working fine which told me it's the amp
Yes it sure is.
Yes it sure is
plug your guitar straight into the effects return - do you get sound?
(you might need to plug in another cable into the send to activate the return)

So I have the new / updated version of this mighty amp. I kept having to keep the trebles at 9 o’clock and the presence on 10 and it still was ice pick. After a TON of online research some problem solving and a little luck I decided F*** it - you only live once and what can go wrong?? Best I could figure is the bright cap on the new DSL 40 cr is at C 73 for the ultra gain channel. It still has a 470 pf cap - I clipped it and put in a 100 pf. Mind you I wasn’t 100% sure that this was the right cap but was pretty sure. Only one way to find out!!
it didn’t go well I don’t think had the legs of rhe cap all the way through the board - took it to my amp tech and he tweaked it and got it working!
I’m here to say that it’s AWESOME now!! Able to fully dial in the tone stack and use the trebles and presence at 1-2 o’clock now and get a great scooped : brown tone. The tone shift sounds much better now too when it’s engaged bc the torn stack is set properly now.
it was 2 weeks of not knowing if it totally screwed up my amp or not but it ended well.
just wanted to share in case it helps someone else
I love the look of your amp Saxon.
Welcome to the forum, have you also tried the preamp tubes.
One of mine lost sound, not 100% but enough to make it barely audible, preamp tube fixed it.
Cheers to getting back in shape !!
Thanks Mitchell I'll give a try I appreciate the info.
