    Mother****************ingthis. My biggest complaint about the DSL. Front panel is great, which makes for a great studio amp, but is very limited when playing it live, unless you just want two channels like most of us.

    However, there are always way of modding it to make it footswitchable.


    I've got the 401 combo, for some reason, you can change between crunch modes on this amp an very usefull it is too! I've no idea why this feature never made it to the heads

      I toured a DSL 100 for 2 years with no problems at all, out of a cold van into a warm venue, no flightcase, it even got dropped a few times.

      it probably did nearing 200 shows with no issues, so my experiences are only good.

      I like the red channel and my EQ for clean/drive sounds is pretty close anyway so i dont see a shared eq as a compromise.

        I don't get the fascination with reverb. I've never heard my amps' reverb once the band kicks in.

            They missed a channel unless the pic isnt accurate.


            4 channels with 3 modes on each channel (green, orange,and red).

                AND if you turn it up enough to hear it your sound gets completely lost in reverb world.

                  If you play "Rockabilly" or "Surf" music, reverb is a must!

                    It would be interesting to know what % of amps sold actually get used in bands. I'm guessing it's 10% tops.

                          I bet it still doesn't sound great unless you crank it. That's my #1 beef with most Marshalls.

                          As a former DSL owner, I agree that it would need either separate EQ for both channels or a better balance between the two. From what I can remember the biggest issue was bass. If you had the green channel dialed just right, then the red channel had way too little bottom end.

                          So basically they revised everything that didn't really need revising.


                          God forbid you turn your amp up. Marshall amps are made to be loud. If you don't want loud, don't buy a Marshall. ****************, even the Class 5 amp is loud as ****************. The JVM is the only Marshall that sounds OK at low volumes.
