Hey guys, not sure if this is the right place to ask this or not but maybe you’ll know the answer or where I can find it.
I’ve got a 100W Marshall DSL Head, not the JCM2000 series one but the series after that, and basically what’s happening is when I’m playing it will every now and then cut out, the channel indicator light will dim and go out along with the volume, this happens fairly regularly. And then just the other day it cut out but the channel light stayed on, with no sound, and I couldn’t change to the other channel. Turning the amp off and then back on “fixed” it but I’m sure it will happen again.
? ? Any suggestions as to what it could be would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks for you time. ?
I've finally had time to sit down and play properly with my new Code 25. There is a lot of fun to be had with this thing, however there are a few things that have became apparent with some of the models.
Pre-amp models "50s British" and "OD DSL" have really odd low frequency harmonics. To the point where both these pre amp models are pretty much unusable. The default patches that use these settings are proof of this. To me it appear that its these patches that certain Youtuber's concentrated on when bad mouthing the amp online (and I can understand why). All the models have some amounts of digital artifacts, but these 2 models are unbeleivably bad.
Power-amp model "British Class A" seems too hot to me, not that I have an expert ear, but it is almost impossible to get a clean tone with that power amp regardless of what pre-amp you put in front of it and how low you set the pre-amp gain.
I understand that no modelling is perfect, but in general these 3 models just don't respond the same way as the other models on the amp.
OK. I'm aware that the Code 25 is a low cost practice amp, and I am fully prepared to just pretend these models dont exist and live with the other much better models on the amp. However in the spirit of reporting issues with the potential of improving the product then if these models can be fixed in the next firmware update (if there is one) then that would be great.
have a quick query regarding the footswitch for the jcm 2000 dsl 100
does anyone know if it's latching or momentary type
I would like to use same with a gcx audio switcher to change channels?
WARNING: When using the DSL1HR head
for ‘silent’ practice or DI recording ALWAYS
disconnect the speaker cabinet from the
amplifier’s rear panel before switching on.
NEVER unplug the speaker cable from the
speaker cabinet while it is still connected
to the amplifier rear panel. This may stress
the amplifier’s power-stage and in extreme
cases may lead to valve and/or transformer
Can i use an emulated out with the cab speaker plugged in?
Hi there! What can it be, when sometimes i turn on my amp the channels simply don't response, there is no led light and no sound. But when i plug a footswitch out, led and sound start to be functional. So it rarely occurs, but still occurs. Should i worry about it? Footswitch itself works properly by the way.
my name is jason and i have a question. Since a week or so my marshall dsl 40 had very low volume on the ultra gain channel even when i turned all the way up. Normally my ears would explode and my mom would run upstairs. So it makes very low volume on the ultra gain channel. but when i turn my volume up all the way on the classic gain channel while im playing trough the ultra the volume is normal again. This is really weird and i have no idea to fix this please help

Hi Marshall Team,
i was wondering if it is safe to connect the effects loop send to my Behringer interface.
And if so, is it still safe when
1. the cab is not connected
2. the emulated out is not connected
3. i don't send the signal back to effects loop input
I am asking because I want to silently record and use IRs on the preamp sound, like cab simulations, pedals or EQs.
I've read, that the DSL Series has a dummy load, what makes in unnecessery to plug in the cab while using the preamp. Is that correct?
Couldn't find a definite anwer, so I'm asking you guys!
Thanks in advance!
I have a new DSL20CR. When I use emulated out, the signal is only present when the amp is on standby. When I switch the amp to low or high mode, there is no longer any signal on the emulated out. Is that correct?
I got my DSL 20 CR in May 2020 so 6 months ago and recently have noticed that the light underneath the power switch is flickering.
It is now significantly dimmer and a bit annoying not really what you would expect with the quality of a marshall.
Not sure if this is covered by the warranty or if I need to fix it myself.
Any Help greatly appreciated,
Hello, a question about a my marshall dsl 40 cr:
I have noise problems on the od channel (hiss), even when nothing is plugged in,
i've read on a forum this can be Resistors 141 and 148 that cause the problem
is this problem known and is it worth trying to replace these resistors?
Guitar and lead both work fine however my Marshall DSL40 (purchased Dec 2018) has stopped working, all lights work however there is no sound. High power output also makes strange popping/crackling noises when idle, also as of 2 weeks ago the amp would randomly but rarely make a clicking noise when in standby, this stopped a week later but I had previously never ever heard this noise before. The standby also emits a quiet hum.
I'm attempting to discover a channel exchanging pedal for my DSL 100h. The Marshall site says it utilizes the PEDL-90012 which is out of creation. Can I simply utilize something like the MRPEDL91003 or do I have to get the first footswitch? tellthebell
I have a DSL 100h that has been fading in and out and crackling for quite some time. It seems to only happen on the clean channel and makes no difference, if I have my pedal board plugged in or not. I have the fx loop turned off, so I believe that that part of the circuit is out of the equation. I just swapped out the tubes because I suspected the pre amp tubes were bad from some other things I read and still no luck. Has anyone else experienced this?
Which cable should I use to connect DSL Emulated out with an audio interface: mono, stereo, balanced?
I just purchased a new DSL 40CR from an online auction site. The amp sounds great, but it is generating a very distinct crackling sound, primariy when I play E, F, or G chord on the low E string. There is a slight crackling sound on an A chord, but not as bad. This happens on both channels. I have change out cords and tried with mutltiple guitars, same results. Any idea what the problem might be?
People here have talked about a "mushy" sound on these amps. It happened to me, at some point, with my DSL 20 head. Fortunately, I also have a DSL20 combo. So I hooked up the combo to the pedalboard and the cab. Unplugged the amp's speaker, and the difference was night and day. I also had a DSL100H, I kept for a friend, same problem. I told him it needed serviced, he didn't listen. I just got done playing one, that was working correctly, at a Guitar Center. It was aggressive, and brutal, the way it should be! Consistent and tight.
What I found on a forum, and what I suspected, was a small capacitor, in the preamp had failed, in C21,C22, position, if I remember correctly. Sorry, but these are made in Vietnam...And that's what you get...Instead of sending my tech guy on a fishing expedition, I'll dump it off somewhere...Maybe, I will get the old JMP I always wanted... DON'T EXPECT THESE AMPS TO LAST, BECAUSE THEY WON'T!
Hello :) Is it normal with the brown "blurbs" Gel looking things around the black things on the green print plate.? Marshal DSL 100H.
I just got this amp yesterday and have only played for about 15 minutes or so. When I play on channel 2 in the high overdrive channel I get what sounds like vibrations and slight buzzing when I play notes on the GBE strings higher up the fret board. I'm playing at low volume on the 20 watt setting. Nothing is maxed out and it only happens on the higher overdrive channel. Is this normal does the amp need to be broken in any guidance would be appreciated!
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 !
