Hi, I’m in New York and I wanted to buy a Marshall DSL 20C, but ANY store keeps one new, so I wanted to know if you recommend me to buy a code 50, a origin 20, a dsl40c or any other?
Hello everyone i hope your all doing well
I recently we are talking the last 4 days purchesed my dream amp a marshall DSL100HR. I was very excited to finally be able to get my hands on a marshall super lead series amp. The dream has become a bit of a nightmare as currently i am the proud owner of a fancy paper weight. I handled the amp head with extreme care when i got it. I let it acclimate to my house temp befor even taking it out of the shipping packiging then when i did i was baby gental in doing so i set it up correctly and double checked so befor even powering up the amp. When i did power on the amp i let the tubes warm up like i read to do so i did this for 15m when i switched the amp to power low mode on i think that its 50watt in that mode. I heard a loud pop pop pop buzz and everything died the amp became unresponsive and the only thing that seemed to be working was that the tubes were lighting up properly and i could run the amp in standby thats it. the front panel was dead the foot switch was dead but the amp could still power on does anybody know what the hell happand ?
what did i do wrong did i just get a lemon ?
is this common with this amp range ?
I am not rich it took a lot of financial planning to be able to afford this amp i am so bummed out. I did speak to the place i bought it from and there sending me a return label and when they get it they will ship a new DSL to me but this whole situation sucks. Thanks for any insite and help i wish everyone well !
(update) I got the return label sent the amp head back there processing a new DSL100HR order for me i wont get it till tuesday/wensday hope the one they send me works ! If the new DSL100HR also has issues i will most likely swear off tube amps forever not at all pleased with my initial experience at all.
(update 2) I have the new DSL100HR and this one works so i guess i got a lemon befor all is well now enjoy your lives people stay metal ! stay rock and roll ! most important stay safe out there !
Yesterday the power light on my DSL 40 went off, then came back on, then off again. It's been doing the same today.
Apart from this, the amp is running fine with great sound and all the other lights still working.
Is it just a bulb issue? And if so, how do I go about fixing this?
I have a DSL40CR - great amp- but sometimes the reverb is gone all of a sudden. When I swith off the amp and turn it on, the reverb is again audible. I use the 6-way footcontroller for switching channels. Any ideas? The amp hasn´t any others issues.
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?
Im about to purchase a secondhand AFD100 that does not include the footswitch. I want to make one but im unsure of the layout. Will I be able to use a DSL footswitch and add LEDs. Could anyone provide me a photo of the wiring or any diagram as I cannot purchase one new.
My DSL 20 HR is completely silent when effect loop is in standard active setting.
No sound goes through. Only a very very silent cracking.
when I switch the effect look off to bypass via the foot switch, the amp will give out the regular sound, of course without any pedals that are in the loop
i ruled out broken chords. It is the same without anything in the effect loop at all.
thanks a lot
I've had my dsl 401 for about 12 years. In the United States. From the beginning, it would lose power, go silent, but then come back. Now, it has gone completely silent, won't come back, and I can't find a certified Marshall repair listed anywhere in the United States. All my searches, including on Marshall's own website, state it is for UK customers only. This issue is common with this amp. Can you point me in the right direction? I am not an engineer.
My dsl 20hr is a great sounding amp, I have just started using the supplied footswitch, but noticed a problem. The tone changes when footswitch is plugged in, the tone is clearer, slightly louder. When unplugged the tone goes slightly darker. Also when plugged in the tone is better, more crunchy. But when I engage the fx loop, again the tone darkens, as if throwing a blanket over the speakers. I run a delay and reverb in the loop, checked all cables etc all fine. Any assistance greatly appreciated.
So I've had my dsl 40c for awhile now and I absolutely love it. However, One small issue came up awhile and i could use some help tracking down the right part. A couple weeks ago one of the fuses blew in the amp head, and after going to severa music stores, hardware stores, home depot, even automotive stores, i cannot find the right exact fuse for the amp. They're all 500ma, which are pretty common, but if you get one from a hardware store it just blows again immediately, because as I've noticed, the fuses that came in the amp have a thicker wire than anything I can find. Even having trouble locating the right ones online and there is absolutely NOTHING in the way of fuses on sweetwater, if anyone has any idea on how I can track down the right fuse, it would be greatly appreciated!
Manual says "Connect a single speaker cabinet here for the DSL1HR head". Is it means I can't use cabinet with two 8ohm speakers in series?
Help! My DSL 100 head worked fine, set it to STB, switched it back on low output was dead and very little output on high. All valves are lit up. I run it through a Marshall 2x12 jsm900lead-1936 cab 8ohms. Has anybody had a similar problem?
Where is the serial #?
When i using the emulated output on my Dsl 5cr the sound is very bad, both with using headphones or connecting to my computer.
Amp is a little over a year old was fine then past few weeks after warmup the volume would dump. All cables, inputs were checked and new JJ tubes put in which seemed like it fixed the issue However when I engaged the Tone Shift button the volume dumped again and when manipulating this button it caused the amp to crackle and seemed to be shorting out the power which intern was dumping the volume.. My tech replaced the Tone Shift curcuit but still when pushing the button in it causes the same issue, we are at a lost..and frustrated...Any Comments or Suggestions greatly appreciated
Looking to confirm, when using headphones on 5 Watt, you disconnect the speaker correct? Also, does this need to be in low power only or can it be in normal power for headphone use?
Which speaker jack is for the 8 ohm, the one in the very center or the one next to the 1x16 where the cabinet pluggs in? Their are 5 jacks, so counting from left to right which one is the 8 ohm jack ? Thank you.
Hi! I recently bought my Marshall DSL 100 HR. There is a silent recording mode. If my understanding is correct when the amp is in a standby mode only preamp section is active. Can I use my amp in standby mode for silent recording at home without a load/cab?
I would monitor it via my soundcard. Just to be clear I would not activate the 100/50 power amp section only stay in STB mode.
Could this cause any harm to the amp?
I really want a Marshall amp; not because of the name on the front, but I know all of my favourite music was recorded with one. My favourite album of all, for example, was recorded with an old JCM2000 DSL100 (which is obviously not for sale anymore).
This led me to find the new DSL range, but I've heard bad things; particularly about the DSL40C which has lots of reports of fizziness. It also sounded pretty unpleasant to me on YouTube reviews. exchange rates online
I'm told JCM800 is a quintessential of sorts, and I know many music I like which was recorded with one, but I don't want to spend that much money, and apparently it's very loud.
I've heard terrible things about SLX, and the I don't know if the MA/MGX ranges will achieve what I'm looking for.
So I just don't know what to get dude. My main sound is a high gain rocky sound which is really smooth rather than dirty and sounds really emotive... like from the song "The Kill" by Thirty Seconds to Mars.
My budget is about £600.
Hi. Is there anyway of Marshall making a low watt emulated preamp such as the dsl 1 for the code. I was wondering if this would make my code 25 a more useable bedroom amp as at the moment even adjusting levels in app its hard to achieve usable evening sound levels.
