Chris Martins's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" 15 watts pushing seriously."

Marshall DSL15H
Small all-tube two channels, 15 watts 6V6 (but looks good 10 more, besides the amps in other brand rather 2X6V6 display 25 watts). Classic tone stack in Marshall: Presence, Bass, Middle, Treble, shared between the two channels Clean and Vivid, "deep" and "tone shift" respectively boost bass and cut the mids. 3 speaker outputs, 8 ohms (2) and 16 ohms (1) switch and pentode / triode switch to 7.5 watts. Footswitch and cable HP provided. No loop, no reverb, not serious reverb, loop I would have liked anyway ...


Ultra basic configuration. You turn the knobs, listen playing. The sound is very "Marshall", ie big, bold and aggressive but not excessive either, scratching sound that fits in a nickel mix without too do anything. The clean is not highly crystalline but it is very balanced, shared EQ is staged not a problem from one channel to another


Sound is located between the DSL series (timbre) and JVM (gain level). Classic Marshall, obtained on the clean channel a real clean up a crunch AC / DC well typed vintage Plexi, and the overdrive channel goes from Plexi boosted JVM, with a very large headroom, no need for a boost why with this head. The volume level can play carefree group provided not hope to do with a 1x12 to keep a clear, a 2x12 will be shown as bare minimum.


A straightforward amp, with a "historically correct" sound and a big foot in modernism in terms of gain level. Practice in many situations, I see very well in the setup of a guitar a little roots, making scenes midsize or repeating restricted environment on space and looking up the sound signature Marshall.

didmau's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very good amp"

Marshall DSL15H
All 15w lamps with a triode pentode switche to switch to 7.5 w
Super simple adjustment equalize a 3-band presence switche a boost bass and another hollow midrange no reverb


Plugged into a 1X12 ENGL is the sound marshall straightforward. Nothing to do with his little sister HAZE 15H which in my opinion is pathetic next
Manuel?????? You plug it up the sound and plays


DSL means dual super lead. 2 channels: one clean with a gain knob that allows the cruncher but we should turn up the volume or have a good humbucker on the guitar.
The channel then lead there ..! He starts with an overdrive look great, finishing on a huge distortion
Played with SG and STD STRAT LONESTAR. ACDC sound no problem with the first and that of HENDRIX with 2emee
The clean sound is superb in every case. The maximum gain on the crunch channel is not really my thing so I limit its travel 3/4


used for a short time. I had a VOX AC15? THE MARSHALL HAZE the BUGERA OF Ketner EL 84 and I keep my peavey classic 50 still

Very good amp. A remake ................ I do it again without hesitation

SUPER, the footswitch is provided and the cable is very long, bravo.


The manual is minimalist, but there is no need. Ha, if a large precision!
I saw the demo on youtube, like you, I suppose, and demonstrators are changing the way pentode / triode as direct. Indeed, we hear the difference in power. But it is very, very discouraged. Must be turned off, then press the button and turn on the amp. Another important note (which is not Captain Lee, I find ecxellent with his colleague Rob), as on every tube amp, turn the volume and gain to 0. DO NOT TURN THE AMP WITHOUT A SPEAKER IMPEDANCE AS WELL CONNECTED!
Here is the most important manual.
No 36 000 settings, EQ efficient gains and volumes are very reactive.


Well, first test quickly. I plugged into my HP Blues Jr, a Jensen C12N. I will do further tests on my 2x12 greenback in.
The clean sound is good (I put the presence of 2 or 3 to make it sound more vintage). Well, it is not a JTM45 or 2061X!
Immediately, a remark about 7.5 lacks power compared to dynamic mode 15w. I do not therefore use triode.
You can play at very low volume. The EQ is effective. The crunch channel gain base 1, I will have to deepen, but not convinced (I think it is better when you put the volume up!). on the other hand, Ultra channel, at the beginning of the race, when we begin to hear the sound, then it is good.
I leave the deep engaged in 15 watts, the amp has a good dynamic. I kept the presence of 2 or 3 max, 7 and Basses at middle and trebble little more than half. ACDC sound!
Well, when you push the gain, highly reactive, WAAAaooouu! Pffft! Arght! This is good, very good. I then plugged my OCD with the same EQ on the clean channel, too good. Carbon copy my time, really all set to have a mini kind of reverb (it looks like a reverb), for me, it goes very well, no need for effects loop, I do not see that it would give better. I've never used the loop, it probably depends on effects, I do not know, I board a time, others will probably say more about it.

Yes, already! Connecting my 2x12 greenback. While there, the slap! Nothing to do with the Jr. Blues C12N Gain background on channel 1, the crunch is very very good. After channel Ultra, the top. Presence 7, about the Moitiers gain a little more acute and middle, Slash sound. Between the two, everything goes, Led zep, ZZ Top, Hendrix! Hmmm, yum. I have also been experimenting with the attenuator. I notice that the volume is good, even very good. So this amp, the attenuator is not really useful. Usually on other amps, turning down the master, as there was a lack of something or dynamic. This DSL15 ago dynamics even at low volume. The volume up, it sends very strong. There is volume. No problem for group play. On mode 7.5 watts, I said bullshit, it's very good. But when going from 15 to 7.5, it is ... Uh! Yes, Moitiers less strong, and it is a bit bland after 15, just put a little more volume.


I have not opened the amp, I do not know what is inside. But apart from the fact that the Vietnamese are certainly very poorly paid, they work very well. I saw on some forum that some people had doubts about the quality of an amp made in Vietnam! Yeah, the amp is superb, very well finished, everything is glued, cut, NOTHING to say!
I am very happy with this GAS! I notice that I can play everything with this amp (Well, I can play anything when my chicken legs permit me one day!).
For 529 euros, there is nothing to say! You can play all styles making the right adjustments.
Reproach, the receiver would have been perfect if the channel gain ULTRA had returned there or stops channel 1 background.

I will update after several weeks of use.

EDIT: After a little movement with the head, I realize it is not very balanced, it leans, the transformers are on the same side. I see, but who cares.
