Hi. I just bought my first marshall this week, a DSL40CR. Due to the pandemics, I bought it online without ever trying one in person. I have to say I’m very disappointed with how it sounds. The OD2 channel is very flubby, harsh, and nasal sounding. Tried plenty of settings but have yet to found a single usable distortion tone out of this amp. I’m also surprised how little gain it has given the DSL moniker. I have to basically turn up the gain to 100% to only get 70-80% of the gain level I normally use. I’m not looking for crazy level of gain, just enough saturation for tight palm mute chugging (think metallica, lamb of god, etc.). I have played several high gain tube heads (orange TH30, hughes kettner tubemeister, PRS MT15, PRS Archon, mesa rockerverb) and was able to reach my desired gain level at 50~70% gain setting. Might that be caused by a faulty tube somewhere? I really want to try to rotate the tube, but the back panel screws are so damn hard to remove I stripped it with my screwdriver. I really regret buying this amp and should have waited until I try it in person.
