Hi. I'm having a problem with my DSL5CR. When plugged direct into the amp and switched to the Classic gain channel it works perfectly. However, when switched to the Ultra gain channel, the guitar is very faint and what can be heard is a weak-fuzzy sound. When I first noticed the problem, I thought it was a case of the tubes needing to warm up, as after 30 seconds the level would gradually increase, unfortunately the problem has got worse. Could it be the pre-amp tubes at fault? 

Thanks,
Steve

Hi,

Good Day

I bought my first Marshall Amp December 2020 but mainly using it at low volume since I live in an apartment and don't want to upset my neighbors.

Recently I cranked the Ultra Gain to 12 o'clock position, Volume 12 o'clock - and started hearing a noise - like a static noice that you hear on old TV. As you increase the volume or gain the noise gets louder too. Clean Channel is quiet even at max gain or volume. 

Is this normal? I used to watch lots you tune review of this amp, and I don't think hearing this on the demo (considering they have mic infront of the speaker).

Any information you can share is appreciated.

Thanks

Just realised the classic gain channel (clean) is louder than the ultra gain channel on my amp. Is this normal? This is with both channels being set the same. Also the preamp tube for the classic gain channel is very dim to the point it's hard to see it lighting up! This is my first tube amp so I'm pretty clueless.

Hi, 

I'm trying to set up the ES8 to use the effects loop on the amp as described on page 15 of the ES8 manual: 

Send Vol on ES8 to Amp Input on DSL5

RtnVol on ES8 to Amp Send on DSL5

Out 1/L on ES8 to Amp Return on DSL5

The problem I'm running into is that this setup seems to completely skip the volume controls on the amp. 

Is there a setting on either that I might be missing? 

 

Thanks,

James

Hi,

Have just replaced my DSL5c with new version and  i see valve layout has changed. Can i replace the ecc99 with a TAD12bh7a which I still have? Apparently depending on circuit or amp design this can be possible.

Also why the reduction to 2 ecc83's? Your site and Sweetwater both list this new model as having 3 ecc83's! Is my new amp wrong? Is the phase inverter missing?

Thanks

Mike
