Marshall DSL Series DSL40C

Marshall DSL Series DSL40C

Wow. Marshall has long been the choice of guitar amps for serious and professional musicians, and it is not hard to see why. Over the past decades, the brand has built a reputation for building solid amps that simply sound great.

The DSL40C is no exception. The primary reason we have chosen it as our winner today is its amazing sound. It is impossible to get that signature Marshall sound with any other brand of amp, and this item is a great advert for it.

No matter what style of music you play, this amp will deliver. Its frequency response is incredible, meaning that even when pushed to its limits, every note is clear and bright. It is also highly adaptable, so even if you are the kind of guitarist who has a huge bank of effects pedals on stage, the amp will be able to deal with even the weirdest noises.

Go down to your guitar store, plug in, and give it a listen, and we are sure you’ll agree – this is simply the best sounding guitar amp around today.

Of course, in addition to the incredible sound, this amp comes with a range of great extra features:

PROS
  • The amp has more than enough power to deliver great sound, even when pushed to the limit. Whilst, at 40W, this is not the most powerful amp that we reviewed, it is really, really loud. You can play even large halls with this amp, and not worried about being heard!
  • This amp shares many of the great features that have made Marshall amps such classics. It features foot-switchable classic and ultra gain channels, so you can quickly and easily switch between sounds, no matter how crazy things get on stage!
  • The digital effects that are built in to this amp are also great. The digital reverb included with this amp is quickly becoming something of an iconic sound, and with this amp it can be activated using the included foot switch.
  • The flexibility of this amp has made it a favorite amongst gigging musicians. The people we talked to for this review praised the fact that this amp was so compact, whilst also delivering all the power and volume that it is famous for. This is especially valuable for busy musicians, because lugging a heavy, huge amp to gigs and practice quickly becomes really tiresome!
  • The build quality of this amp is good. Whilst there are some Marshall amps, for more than twice the price of this one, that offer hand-built construction, this mass-produced amp is fabulously built considering its price. We are sure that it will give many years of reliable service.
  • Again, that sound. Obviously, the sound you want in your guitar amp is a matter of personal choice. However, we are confident that no matter what style of music you play, you will be delighted with the crisp, clear sounds of this amp.
CONS
  • In truth, none. It is very hard to beat this amp at the price, and the value it represents is outstanding.
