Marshall DSL1HR 1W 2Ch Tube Guitar Head


The Marshall Amplification DSL1HR is a two-channel amplifier head 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 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 headphones or to a recording interface, taking advantage of the Softube-designed studio-cabinet emulation all the while.

This amplifier head sports a single 1/4" speaker output jack rated at 16 Ohms. You can use this amplifier with speakers such as the 160HM extension speaker cabinet, or you can use it as a front end for your interface's DI input, using the emulated output jack in coordination with a 3.5mm-to-1/4" adapter. A footswitch is supplied, with which you can choose between the two channels.
