Classic marshall sound, ideal for home studios
Janesz, 31.03.2018
I have ordered by the purpose of recording at home, so it was crucial to find such an amp which serves good sound on moderate level of volume. I think Marshall made a step forward with this revision. I could try an older DSL model and the noise issue, which was really critic earlier, improved a lot (in the right way).
The split EQ is not the best when You're on a stage, because for sure You need different things for clean and distorted channels, but when it comes to recording this issue disappears. Although, I find the EQ section a little bit inconsistent, it is a great amp.
However, it also has to be emphasized that it brings the classic, old school Marshall sound. The well known resonance and presence knobs do their jobs as we know it from earlier. The reverb is really nice for the clean channel, sometimes I have a feeling like I play with a guitar with piezos.
There's also a tone shift by which more tweaking possibilities come forth.
Apart from the fact that the EQ section is tricky, there are no big problems with the amp. I think it's worth for the price.

Real thing
Hairybaldy, 07.11.2019
My amplifier mainly goes in both studio and club. Sings - God forbid everyone!
It copes with scoring of a small and medium gigs. I didn't use it at large gigs as i don't have got big venues.
Sound of both channels differs from 1 watt version for the better. However for an ordinary apartment 20 watt is way too much. Loud even in 10 watt mode. Tube gain warms guitarists soul, cooling relations with neighbors sametime.
Digital reverb is adequate, although I personally rarely use built-in. Extensive equalizer capabilities and channel switching are more relevant.
Quite decent functionality: FX loop, footswitch, audio in and output with emulation, 3 sockets with different cabinet options.
Verdict: I can recommend this model as a choice of tube amplifier for modern artists. Studio session performs good hard rock and metal with more modern styles, without extreme underground evil.

Hello,
First of all I would like to mention that I like metal music. This amp doesn't fit to this style. But I haven't been looking for high gaine amp, because I've already got my Engl. So why did I choose this amp? The rison in it's lead channel that sounds great in the mix.
Pros: 1) Awasome clean channel, 2) AUX in, 3) Marshall distinctive lead sound for solo, 4) Good price for completely tube amp, 5) reverb, 6) Marshall design, 7) 10W mode
Cons: 1) It doesn't have modern high gain, 2) it's very loud even in 10W mode
I think DSL20 fits great for Blues and Rock with AC/DC style riffs. And of course it's depends on guitar pickups in your guitar.
I like the sound of this amp with more mids (at 3 o`clock) and less treble (at 9 o`clock) and tone shift swiched ON. With this settings it sounds more metal for me.
Thanx for reading. Be safe and stay in tune!

Good amp, but not an amazing one
Nurse, 05.11.2018
Bought this amp for rehearsal purpose with a punkrock band.
It's loud enough for that and for use on a small stage or pub. I like the build quality, the 10 or 20 watt option and the sound in general.
I don't like the reverb sound( poor sound) and the sound in the band it's mix. It's rather thin sounding, but for home practice its very good though because you get that marshall sound quite good. I used to have a marshall jcm 2000dsl 100. This is amp gives a lot more bottom end instead of the dsl 20. I think there are better low watt tube amps that produce a more powerfull sound. BUT for the money it' s a great amp. I don't use it with the band anymore, now it's my home practice amp and i'm happy with that.
I used it with marshall 1960bx cab in the band (100watt 4*12celestion greenbacks). At home with a harley benton vintage 30 1*12 cabinet. I also own a vox night train g2 15 watt head. This amp has a richer, fuller sound on both cabinets.
