Marshall DSL100H Valve Guitar Head

The Marshall DSL100H Valve Guitar Head is one of Marshall's most popular amps and for very good reason - it delivers completely authoritative, real-valve tones with a great level of versatility at a huge 100 watt power level. It is based on the popular JCM2000 and has the same valve combination of ECC83 (12AX7) preamp valves feeding EL34 power tubes. The DSL100H has 2 channels which each have 2 individual gain modes, giving you a total of 4 overall gain levels. This gives you the ability to achieve everything from crystal clean sounds through to light-breakup, moving onto crunch and finally into all-out tube saturation. This versatility is what makes the DSL format so popular with gigging and recording musicians. It also includes 5 EQ controls so you can dial in your perfect setup. The Tone Shift button provides an option for scooping the mid-range and giving this amp a more modern tone. A series FX loop and half-power mode provide some added professional features, making the DSL100H an all-encompassing tone machine with a true rock and roll heritage.

Rock 'n' Roll Heritage

The DSL100H follows in the footsteps of Marshall's JCM2000 amplifier - a hugely popular product that distilled the brand's rock 'n' roll history into one single amp. The DSL100H features 100 watts of all-valve power and is a true icon of the Marshall brand.

Four Mode Versatility

DSL is an acronym for Dual Super Lead, so it should come as no surprise that this amp has two channels - Classic and Ultra. Each of these channels includes two modes: the Classic channel offers a Clean / Crunch option while the Ultra offers Lead 1 or Lead 2. Instead of merely offering a variation in gain level to the two channels, each one of these four modes has been individually voiced as an amp in its own right. This offers tremendous versatility and can achieve every gain-level that you could possibly require. The Marshall DSL100H Valve Guitar Head can be controlled via the remote foot-switch, ideal for gigging musicians who need a wide range of gain settings from one amp.

Tonal Sculpting

The DSL100H features 5 EQ controls to cover every aspect of tone shaping. It also includes a Voice Switch which scoops the mid-range and provides a more modern sonic output. Each channel has an independent reverb level, so you can setup a separate ambient level for your clean and lead sounds. A series FX loop also lets you add your own external effects into the signal.

Professional Connectivity & Performance

Multiple speaker outputs allow the DSL100H be connected to a cabinet of your choice, so whether you prefer a 4 x 12 wall-of-sound or a simple 1 x 12 wide cab, you'll be able to create the exact projection level that you require. A half-power pentode/triode switch lets you reduce power to 50 watts for more manageable volume levels and quicker overdrive breakup. The tremendous tonal versatility of this amp, coupled with a 100 pure valve signal path (4x ECC83s, 4x EL34s), makes the DSL100H a true professional amp head that works perfectly for any type of gig.
