The Marshall Amplification DSL1CR is a two-channel combo amplifier powered by three valves/tubes. One channel gives you a cleaner tone, while the other is suitable for your distortion needs. A three-knob tone stack, coupled with a tone-shift button that reshapes the preamp's EQ, helps you dial in your preferred timbre. With a low-power switch on the back, you can reduce the output from 1W to 0.1W without affecting the tone; thus, you can practice in your home at later houses with minimal disturbance to your family or neighbors.
An onboard effects loop gives you the ability to put your pedals or external processors directly in the amplifier's signal path, while a reverb knob on the front panel allows you to apply some ambience to your signal. An auxiliary input is on hand for jamming along to your favorite tunes. You can route your signal from the emulated output jack to your headphones or to a recording interface, taking advantage of the Softube-designed studio cabinet emulation all the while.
This combo amp provides a 1x8" cabinet with a Celestion GBC speaker; one capable of handling 15W at 16 Ohms. By default, the amplifier is plugged into the speaker with an included cable. If you want to add an optional extension speaker—or practice silently as you listen through headphones— first turn the amplifier off, and then disconnect the supplied speaker cable; failure to do so may result in damaging the amplifier. A footswitch is supplied with which you can choose between the two channels.
