    Worth it to get an external power amp for JMP-1 or JCM2000 DSL FX Return Good Enough?

    Been using the JMP-1 through the DSL power amp for a while. One curiosity I've had for a while is whether or not I'd be better off getting one of those Marshall gold power amps. I always thought the DSL FX Loop had some weird tone-sucky quality when playing the amp itself with effects, and I...

You can connect your iOS device to your amp’s MIDI input at the back with a USB to MIDI cable and switch your amp’s channels, fx loop and master channel. The coolest part is the app also has an...

    Marshall DSL5: boom! tak-tak!

    Hi guys! I'm glad to have the chance to write here! I bought a Marshall Guitar combo Amplifier (DSL5) a couple of years ago. Always worked perfectly! Today it started to make a strange noise when I switch it on. It's a quite loud boom, after a second followed by two other loud noises like...

    DSL15 and DSL20 Tone Tips

    I have been struggling with thin tone from my DSL15C and DSL20HR. In the past, I tried thickening it up with more volume or by pulling back the high frequencies and pushing the mids, but nothing ever sounded quite right—until I discovered the benefits of maxing out the bass and resonance on the...

This was kindly pointed out to me below with some links to the correct information regarding Class A as well as Class AB amps including clarification on Push Pull...

    Original speaker cable on DSL20HR?

    Hey gang! So I've finally bought my first Marshall, a DSL20HR! I've got it fairly cheap and brand new, came with the original box and everything. The guy that sold it to me got it from a store that was shutting down and never used it himself since he's a singer. Anyway, my question is, it...

    Help! First time buying loudspeaker

    Hi all, I'm thinking about replacing my stock 12'' loudspeaker on the DSL40CR. The reason is simply that I don't really appreciate the V-type's high fizz/treble/bright distortion as much as I'd like, and for that I was considering one of the speakers below. Since I can't possibly try out all...

    DSL20CR White Noise Fix

    Has anyone confirmed that there is a fix for the white noise issue with the DSL20CR? Returning it is not an option as I bought it used. After about 4 hours of use at home the white noise started and hasn't gone away. Since then, I have consulted the internets and it appears that this is not...

    Marshall DSL40C clean channel boosted or crunch channel

    So I've been playing with my DSL40C and messing around with both the clean and crunch channels. I read from the user manual that they say the clean mode is supposed to be voiced similar to a plexi super lead, while the crunch mode is supposed to be more like a JCM800. My question is one voiced...

    Help Me fix my tone!

    I have a marshall dsl20h and a 2x12 cab with vintage 30's. The tone is very fizzy in the high end, but the bass and mids on the amp are just perfect for me. These are the settings on my amp Resonance - 7 Presence - 0 (turning it a bit more makes it even more fizzy) Bass - 7 Mids- 6 Treble- 3.5...

    Fizzy amp

    I have a Marshall DSL20HR running through a Harley Benton 2x12 with Celestion Vintage 30 speakers. The tone is VERY fizzy and harsh. Almost like an amp simulator without impulse response. Any help on how to fix that? (Wallet can't afford a tube swap)

    Rocker switch replacement - Discharge caps?

    At some point soon I'm planning on replacing the power rocker switch on a JCM 2000. I know it's best practice to always discharge caps. My specific question is this- Is it a guarantee you'll get bitten if you do not discharge them while replacing the switch?

    Diagnosing DSL40C hissing noise

    I have a DSL40C with a bad hissing noise. I've tested for microphonic tubes and even just replaced the V1 preamp tube with a new one, which according to other people who had the same issue, fixed the hiss. I also moved the tubes in different combinations but the noise remains. I'm not sure what...
