Marshall TSL122
- Receiver has everything lamp. 4x ECC83 preamp and for a 4x EL34 power stage.

- Output power 100 watt (already too much for my taste)

- The connection is good, entrance facade. At the rear there are two effects loops, three outputs with different impedances, an XLR output to connect directly to a mixer and how to connect the footswitch.

- 3 Channel, a clean, crunch and a big distortion. Each of the channels at an EQ and a volume knob and gain. There are two reverb, controlling the mix of effects loops and buttons of presence ... one for the clean channel and one for distortion CHANNELS. There is also a mute button VPR and output and a button and Deep tone shift for each CHANNELS distortion and mid boost to clean.


The-config is not too complicated ... You branch t'allume (correctly without pressing any buttons at a time) and you fiddle with the buttons and it comes out of her footstool.

- Ah the good sound ... sound is on .. well we will see later.

- Is a textbook?? I have not serrieux not even open!


While talking about ... sounds.

- Ben but I do rock, blues mainly but also a bit of everything by side and be honest: No it does not suit me!

- I play a Les Paul classic and I just use a Dunlop Wah .. All complemented by the reverb of the amp.

- While the sound is a big piece of low ... Exaggerating slightly, the titanic who misses me every time I touch the low E. Not seriously at first I thought I could not settle so I try to change some things ...
* I tried the EQ is good but the marshall so basically that is it for in deco.
* I Inrush the VPR ... result: the best but still ca.
* The tone shift button gives his best but is always there to do that remains close to his nag with no interest.
* Finally, I even try to add an equalizer ... ca is still nothing bad!

As for the clean sound is still what's left of right on the amp. The sound is clear and quite slamming ... ok for accompaniment but no more. The same, just by touching everything we can improve a little sound quality but it's still not enough.

- So to sum up its sound distortion too big and without much nuance. When the crunch, they are not too bad but already too big and too crunch at low volumes. Its ok sounds clear (by saying that the marshall too) but not enough to make two pages.

I would put 5 telling me that it's still very nice for an amp for that price, I'd rather buy a hybrid amp and put money in something else.


- Actually I used a friend in an hour but I got so fed up of having this big sound without qualification that I prefer playing on a fender with a distortion pedal for.
- The characteristic I like most is probably the feature that I think RVP is good even if it not replace a power soak, and its effectiveness is quite limited. What I like least, and yet it is what is expected of an amp is the sound.
"I played on many amps, including a fender (not quite comparable to the distortion) and a Dr. Z and I must say that Marshall was by far the last ... when the first was Dr. Z me well above its quality in the bass and sharp in the treble.
- Excellent stopover ... is clearly a better way to get this award.
- No ... I began to seriously question the marsh (m) all in general because they are some good amp but also a lot of shit!

Marshall TSL122
The TSL 122 is a 100 watt all-tube combo with 4 EL34 quip in power and 4 ECC83 in prampli.
It is mounted with 2 HP 12 'celestion: a heritage and a vintage.
5-way Footswitch: clean, crunch, lead, reverb, FX.
It has 3 channels: clean crunch and lead with qualisation spar for each channel and two loop ffects.
for the clean channel are the knobs: volume, gain, treeble, middle, bass, reverb, prsence, Fx (FFECT loop) and a button "mid boost" to accentuate mdiums and "deep" to dig the sound
For the crunch and lead: same config with a touch more "tone shift" for more mdium and bass.
Basically it is as if we had 3 amps!
In addition to this there is a button VPR: rducteur is a power Reduces Intgr that the power of the machine about 30 Watts without ngliger the quality of sound which is good when playing alone in an apartment!
So it is quite comprehensive and in addition it is imposing and it jte, so I put a 9 because nothing is perfect!


Regarding the use is simple and old marshall!
We choose the channel on the RULES qualisation and gain hope as we play and it sounds like hell!
For once the knobs are in Marshall trs prcis was fun to find his own sound!
We pass aisment a channel with another without footswich dcalage what is right when we play live!
We play at home, or in concert with RPET not worry, there's the VPR (rducteur power)!
At home we like to have a vpr his fill because the neighbors not need to push the knobs back home without s'croule before you!
And we live rgale with 100 watts that the amp dlivre.
Also the manual has a great explanation to understand each of the knobs and use them well.
The amp and stronger he can see pass the year without a problem
All this deserves a 10 because Marshall knew rctifier the weakness of yesteryear and the RVP is top!


A Here we are at the best, which is why we achte an amp: the sound it DGIG!
and we are well served royally!
We all know of many reputable bad marshall for clear sound without sounding cold claret brief making more discouraged and leave a presto competitor in the Fender.
Well I have t surprised by the work that marshall ffectuer for clear sound.
on discovering a brilliant, crystalline, slamming the gal of Fender, Marshall's never home!
more and pushing the gain knob you get a nice round little crunch!
As for crunch and lead channels, we arrive in what is the pride of the brand that recognizes this saturation for years the famous marshall distortion!

From the JCM 800 and 900 is the undisputed REFERENCE his Marshall JCM2000 was resumed on all of these mythical CHARACTERISTICS MODELS and providing the modern day.
Let me explain:
crunch on channel one finds the grain from the Marshall JCM800 and a warm little dirty when pushed.
Sound totalemnt adapt to the blues when the gain is at a minimum, and hardrock when you push the gain in the last ditch!
As for the lead channel: oula moves away children and the elderly because it's going dcoiffer!
amplifier is discovering the High gain.
There are a large reserve of grain not need to push the knob to gain background to realize that hard ca!
This channel has really t cr for lovers of mtal!
ca sent very rarely seen in other marshall a big sound like l!
Caution is not a mesa but it grows strong and impressive ca!


Finally I would say the TSL122 amp and a fairly complete at rglage (3 channels) and its level, the power is rducteur pratiquedans his apartment!
It combines a trs good clear sound with a marshall for the disto own all the marshall and going up to the extreme saturation.
A good amp with a big reserve of gain.
For lovers of Marshall fans found out the good as the marshall JCM900 but given good old days.
for lovers of heavy budget mtal lightweight s'aurais I advise that their TSL122 because the lead channel has t designed for serious sound!
This MRIT September 1 because of course it's not the mesa!

So good compromise with its light / saturation
trs qualitprix and good value!
Brief ...... a rgale.

Marshall TSL122
I'm going to court!


For those who criticize the tsl 122.
adpends also the guitarist and guitar sound!


I'm not super good since made only 3 years I learn!
but I have a friend who plays extremely well!
I say that with him adcoiffe! I come out yet has the same sounds on the amp.


So you learn a challenge in your decision! and be objective!
is the basis of the jcm 900 on channel crunch, and lead to the most modern
So with this amp you play all styles!
I'm glad mine even if I can not operate a 100% by my lack of level!
except that I say!

Marshall TSL122
- All Tube Amp
- 120 W RMS
- 2 HP 12 ", Line Out XLR, 2 FX loops, a 5-way footswitch (clean, crunch, lead, reverb, fx)
- The settings in all directions: a and a gain equalizer (bass, middle, treble) per channel, a reverb, fx mix and presence in the clean and the same thing for the crunch + lead. Besides the "mix boost", "tone shift" and other "deep"
- No headphone jack: '(


- Not to widen the meninges of hours: one branch and it works. The config is instinctive. I just looked at the manual to understand both a 2-loop effects (there are subtleties) and HP connections.
- As long as the lamps are a little hot, the sound is excellent!
- The manual is clear but the lack of photos to support the text.


- This amp suits my music style, very pop-rock.
- The sounds are accurate, even with the lead gain in depth.
- I have a pti gap when I go to crunch or lead to clean with the footswitch.
- The possibilities of different sounds are almost endless!



- The sound Marshall
- The 2 HP
- The "Virtual Power Reduction", which reduces the output level to 25 watts while using all the lights.
- The separate EQ for each channel (that's what made me decide to buy it)
- The 2 effects loops


- No headphone jack (I think my neighbor hates me now ...)
- The gap on the footswitch
- The gain on the clean channel (if you want to play hard, well it is necessary at some point to mount the gain: ca saturates)
- The weight)
