Marshall 1990s DSL1H
All tube amp

Refer to manufacturer's specifications.

Points: no reverb, presence of a switch for switching a power of 0.1 watt (!)


Configuration is very simple, it's basic Marshall.
The manual is very clear and short: there is not much to explain.
We obtain easily a good sound.


So I just got it so I do not really have to walk around but I think my opinion may help some people who do not have the opportunity to try to decide the order or not.

So I unpacked the beast, I balance it in a 12 inch HP Jensen.
First watt is just huge. Apartment so I can not test the amp in the first place (assuming it takes to put the volume up for the sound)

I turn, therefore I switch 0.1W. Should know that the 0.1watt is just huge ...
Clearly not an amp apart, but there is a but.
It is quite possible to play on channel 1 with the volume turned leaving the gain quarter, the volume is very reasonable. I will not play at 4 in the morning but during the day / evening no problem.
If you want to use a distortion pedal, no doubt that this will clear the case appart low volume.

And I'm on the Q. Sounds clear Marshall always make me there and this one is no exception. This is very good, very hot, it burns very dynamic character. Much is said about Fender cleans but personally sounds clear Marshall impress me often. Brief matter of taste.

For hi gain, not possible to test without leaving a note of apology in the hallway so I abstain.
Attention, it is quite possible to generate a big crunch at low volume without being noticed, but the idea was to bring the volume up to seek the maximum amplification lamps and Marshall get the juice as desired.
But I've seen enough demos on the net to know he has the grain I search and I could make the background repet. Has quite the level to impose a battery in my opinion .

Crunches for this is pretty much the same, it's fast too strong so I can not give my opinion either.



Playable-clear sound at maximum volume remaining in the apartment nails.
His extraordinary light-even in this configuration
Its bright-light with a distortion pedal
-2 Channels, footswitch and effects loop.


-Crunch or unplayable HighGain volume 10 apartment without making enemies
-No reverb
-The price for 1watt.

My overall opinion is that once I bought it to put it back at me HighGain but it's still a very good head However, the use of which is a little bastard (or really flat, not really together, not really Cheap and no reverb).

Denis13's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" The ultimate home amp"

Marshall 1990s DSL1H
3 in ECC83 ECC82 preamp and power 2 1w issuing the cleat, tamable (1w home that tape) through a switch at the rear 0.1W
2 channels with footswicht, gain for each MV +, Eq TMB common, deep switch (adds body at low frequencies, perfect for a strat or tele) and tone shift (cutting mediums, not a fan ...)
At the rear, an output hp 8/16 ohms, fx loop in and out, footswich connection, line out with simu hp, switch 0.1W


The config is very simple, RAS that side


Channel clear: it is a true clear channel, which cranked crunch does not tjs with a strat. This is a nice clear sound, not too round or too Cristalin, and good food pedals that I glue: wha, compressor and clean boost

Saturated channel: (too much?) Gain, I do not spend half. Moreover, beyond the sound tends to crash a bit. But who can do more can do less if you stay in the first half, it's really good.
We begin with a very dynamic light crunch (with a Tele bridge pickup is a treat, very 70's) to the large distortion. Passing from one to the other sound compression gain what he loses in dynamic, classic.

Volume level situations with 0.1W and MV, you can play any level from 0 to 1w, uncompromising sound. Even 0.1W it remains excellent.
And for concerts?
I put one of EH 22 Caliber (power amp pedal size) between the send of the loop and the baffle, the fact that it is!


I have extensively tested the JTM1 I owned and sold the JMP1, I am JCM1 and DSL1, I am seriously considering selling the JCM1 to keep only the DSL through its versatility and extensive connection and of course its great sound.
For 2 months I played I did almost more than he
More than 600 € for a head 1w it is indeed a fact, but if you think 2 times, it is much more usable house a big amp that is often clamp and that costs usually more expensive .
Conclusion: do not judge the price of an amp w as it delivers, but according to the pleasure you will reap in its context of use.
In this perspective, the € 600 DSL1 this is money well spent
