Puristic flagship amplifier

The 100-watt DSL100HR is the latest surprise from Marshall’s long-established Dual Super Lead series and its flagship model. At the heart of the DSL100HR are four ECC83 and four EL34 tubes which ensure that players can enjoy true Marshall tone without compromise. At 100 watts, its output is enough for any stage in the world, but it can also be switched down to 50 watts if need be. This may be a no-frills amplifier, but its features and two-channel design still provide plenty of flexibility.

Muscle AND brains? You got it!

The DSL100HR’s two channels share a typical Marshall EQ section equipped with a bass, middle, and treble control, which are complemented by resonance and presence controls. The latter are essentially bass and treble controls but, unlike those in the preamp’s EQ section, they instead shape the tonal characteristics of the amp’s power stage. The front panel also features a Tone Shift switch that slightly scoops the mid-frequencies for a more “modern” sound. The rear panel features an Audio In socket, so you can play along to music from your mobile phone or computer. It also includes an Emulated Out socket with cabinet simulation, which immediately provides a suitable signal for recording or listening through headphones. The DSL100HR features an effects loop and, unlike the smaller models in the DSL series, it also comes equipped with a MIDI input for switching the channels, gain modes, effects loop, and master switch selection. The features are rounded off nicely by a dedicated digital reverb unit for each channel.

Powerful and sophisticated

Marshall’s DSL100HR is a real all-tube amplifier positioned in the mid-price bracket that can still hold its own against significantly more expensive competitors and gives both professionals and ambitious amateurs everything they need. The order of the day is classic Marshall tone, and the DSL100HR effortlessly delivers just that. Its 100-watt output is enough for both the stage and the studio, and this can also be switched down to 50 watts. Furthermore, the DSL100HR is perfect for recording, especially since it comes equipped with a high-quality Emulated Out.

About Marshall

Marshall, the manufacturer from Milton Keynes in Great Britain, is an indispensable figure in the world of electric guitar. The tube amplifiers of company founder Jim Marshall († 2012) have been writing Rock music history since 1962 with names like Pete Townshend, Jimi Hendrix, and Eric Clapton. The classics of the JTM, JMP, and JCM 800 series are still highly sought-after today, as they shaped the sound of overdriven and distorted electric guitar more than any other product. To this day, the combination of the amp and 4x12" cabinet - the "Marshall stack" - is synonymous with the energy and power of the Rock music genre. Alongside these landmark achievements, however, Marshall has always kept its finger on the pulse of the times and a close eye on the needs of up-and-coming musicians.

A classic repackaged

Studio or stadium, loud or quiet: Marshall’s sound is unmistakeable, and players who are looking for that sound won’t settle for anything less. Luckily, the DSL100HR admirably upholds this Marshall heritage and comes at an affordable price. The DSL100HR is big enough for every situation and captures the essence of Marshall’s legendary amplifiers of decades past in a reliable and modern package.

I found this a very versatile amp right out of the box. Very different to my vintage JMP Superbass 100 W head which I had used for years before. It has that very distinct Raw Marshall growl and amazing tone. Very good value for money and overall I am very pleased with my purchase.

Marshall es calidad a buen precio
Saedinguitar, 10.02.2020
La distorsión que ofrece este amplificador es bestial, con controles de ganancia suficientemente precisos como para dar caña desde rock a incluso en death metal. Por ponerle alguna pega, hay un pedal más sofisticado que el que trae, pero al menos es compatible, aunque hay que comprarlo aparte en caso de que quieras sacarle todo el partido. Lo bueno es que está claramente indicado en la página de Thomann. Aún así, el pedal que trae es más que suficiente, sobre todo si generas un loop de efectos con una pedalera o pedales multiefectos. Lleva dos botones, uno que alterna entre la distorsión y el limpio (dentro de la distorsión hay dos tipos, el OD1 y el OD2 y dentro del limpio el normal y el crunch, por eso prefiero el otro pedal que sí nos permite seleccionar entre todo esto) y otro que alterna entre usar el loop de efectos y no usarlo. Asimismo, el propio amplificador tiene reverb normal y reverb ultra y le puedes meter ambas a la vez para conseguir una reverb muy notoria.

La pega mayor que es por lo que le he puesto 4 estrellas en sonido en lugar de 5 no es porque el sonido no me guste, sino porque un amplificador combo DSL de 40w que tenía antes me daba la misma potencia a la mitad que la potencia que me da este... Aún así, te oyen en la otra punta del mundo si le das caña.

Einsatz:
Der DSL100 HR ist sowohl auf den großen Bühnen als auch zu Hause (dank 50 Watt Modus) oder im Studio (man beachte die Silent-Recording-Funktion) ein treuer Begleiter, der einen nicht im Stich lässt und für jeden dieser Bereiche bestens geeignet.

Positives
Dieser Amp besitzt eine unglaubliche Klangvielfalt. Trotz extremer Gainreserven sind Cleansounds problemlos möglich und zu meiner Überraschung sogar Plexisounds.
Seine wahre Stärke hat der DSL100HR aber definitiv im Ultra Gain Kanal. Ein sehr durchsetzungsstarker Sound, der ein Best of der Marshalllegenden liefert. Wer den Marshallsound liebt, wird hier definitiv nicht enttäuscht werden.
Bei einem Wechsel der Kanäle bzw. Modi erhält man einen grundverschiedenen Sound ohne dass der Wechsel hart oder unharmonisch wirkt, ein gewisser amptypischer Charakter bleibt erhalten, was ich persönlich als sehr angenehm empfinde.
Die Bedienung gestaltet sich einfach, zudem sind die Regler sehr übersichtlich und verständlich angeordnet.
Die Verarbeitung ist makellos.

Negatives:
Der einzige Kritikpunkt ist für mich, dass der Amp lediglich mit einem zweifach Fußschalter geliefert wird, mit welchem man lediglich zwischen den beiden Kanälen aber nicht zwischen dem Green - und Red Mode wechseln kann bzw. ob Reverb on oder off. Dies ist ärgerlich, weil sich insbesondere der jeweilige Red Mode sich gut als Solosound für den jeweiligen Green Mode eignet. Wer die volle Klangvielfalt seines Amps ausschöpfen möchte, ist gezwungen sich den entsprechenden 6-fach Fußschalter anzuschaffen. Mit diesem ist es dann möglich nicht nur die Kanäle sondern auch den jeweiligen Modus auszuwählen. Aufgrund dieses Kritikpunkts habe ich in der Kategorie Features einen Stern abgezogen.

Abgesehen von diesem Negativpunkt (der sich beheben lässt) handelt es sich um ein nahezu perfektes Produkt für das ich eine klare Kaufempfehlung geben kann.

Thomann hat wie immer schnell und problemlos geliefert. Zudem wurden mir Fragen zum DSL100HR die ich über die Chatfunktion vor dem Kauf gestellt hatte innerhalb von 2 Minuten (!) kompetent beantwortet. Top Service!
