Great amplifier... if it works
DerBrasilianer, 29.10.2018
I've been wanting a Marshall tube amp for a while, but I was never satisfied with the available options. I play mostly at home for my own entertainment, but I would like to at least BE ABLE to keep up with a drummer in band practice. You can hardly do that with 1 or 5 Watts. Then again, 40 or 50 Watt are too loud for me, since I'm almost never on stage (and Marshall tube amps in that range cost more than I am willing to pay). In that sense, a 20-watt amp with reduction to 10W seemed perfect, so I just ordered a DSL20CR. It sounded awesome for my taste! I was really satisfied, until it started to produce weird, rustling background noises. Thomann was AS ALWAYS super uncomplicated and exchanged the amp for me... and then the second unit had the same problem! A quick search on MarshallForum or YouTube reveals that sadly this is not uncommon for these models. From these discussions it was clear that the quality assurance of these made-in-Vietnam amps leaves much to be desired. Thomann sent me a third unit, and made sure to test it before it was dispatched. This one works, and I'm keeping it! The fact that I tried three times until I got a good one shows how much I wanted to have this amp. Maybe I simply had lots of bad luck, but in general people should be aware of these possible issues. In general, if it works (as one would expect of a brand new product), it is a great-sounding amplifier, for at home and in a band situation. Please also beware that 10W might still be too loud for some home environments! In that case, a volume pedal on the FX loop (like the JHS Little Black Amp) can be of great help.

Best tube amp for the serious intermediate player
granny, 11.03.2019
Distorsion is well defined, and the cleans are incredible both in terms of volume (enough clean headroom to cut through a mix with an acoustic drum in the room) and clarity (maybe not Fender pristine cleans but very melodic mid-rich tones). I did not encounter any of the problems that many have reported last year about this model, and the only two objections I might have are regarding the volume of the emulated out witch could be louder - nothing you cannot solve with a booster pedal and maybe the EQ settings as you switch the channel (where you might prefer different settings for each channel) but again no deal breaking at this price point. I do believe that this model is the most versatile choice you can make in the budget and strongly recommend it. Oh and one more thing - ordered it Monday and got it Friday morning witch I think it's some kind of a record for an online order as far as I'm concerned.. kudos Thomann!
