Marshall Amplification DSL100HR Overview

  • 1Description

Representing the next iteration in the company's DSL line, the Marshall Amplification DSL100HR is a 100W valve amplifier head for electric guitar, featuring two channels for Classic Gain and Ultra Gain. Though the amplifier offers many of the same features that made the previous model so popular—most notably, switchable channels with two modes apiece, as well as dual reverb controls—this amplifier improves upon the design of the DSL100H in several ways.

Most prominently, the amplifier head gives you two independent master volume knobs, so you can choose between two different overall volumes on the stage. This is quite useful for soloing, or for lead breaks, where you might want to be a little louder than normal. By means of a separately available six-button footswitch, you can change your volume with the tap of your toe.

MIDI connectivity has also been added, allowing you to integrate the amplifier with your MIDI-enabled gear or MIDI switchers. The power-reduction switch has also received an upgrade. Whereas the previous model sported a back-panel selector that flipped between pentode and triode operation, the DSL100HR boasts a front-panel rocker switch that works directly with the transformer, rather than the tubes. Thus, when you switch from 100W to 50W, you'll experience no shift in tone.

Other differences include the addition of more 1/4" outputs supporting various impedances, so you can use this amplifier work with 16-, 8-, and 4-Ohm cabinets. An emulated output offers a cabinet simulation design by Softube, and can be used in recording scenarios. You'll note the switchable FX loop, as well as an auxiliary input.

Tonally, this amplifier is similar to the previous unit, with a wide array of classic marshall timbres on hand, from the sound of a 1959 Super Lead Plexi in clean mode to the growl of a JCM800. Another key difference, however, is the look of the DSL100HR. With elephant-grade tolex employed in its construction, you'll find it resembles classic British-built Marshall amplifiers. The DSL100HR ships with a power cord and a dual footswitch for Classic/Ultra channel selection and reverb on/off.

Note: Please note, this amplifier comes with the PEDL-90012 footswitch. the PEDL-91016 is available separately.

2 Knobs for Master Volume
Two independent master volume functions let you bring your solo to the forefront. With the PEDL-91005 footswitch (available separately), you can change your master levels with the tap of your toe.
Switchable Output Level on Front Panel
A three-position rocker switch combines standby with high and low output-power functions. The output stage and power control for this amplifier has been designed to deliver an even tonal performance at all power levels. The high and low output functions allow you to choose between two configurations of the internal power supply: 100W or 50W, depending on your predilections. These two configurations give the choice between two output power levels, but they ensure that the output valves behave in the same way for both. This means the amplifier can be put into low power mode without compromising tone.
MIDI Compatibility
The amp's features can be controlled using any MIDI equipment, so you can play this amp and different MIDI equipment at any one time.
