    Excellent amp!

    Marshall TSL100Published on 05/17/14 at 03:51
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    All-tube amp.
    See the features in the advice given above.

    UTILIZATION

    I did not have the manual, but it is doing very well if you have not used this type of amp

    The clean is really good: one of the best Marshall clean that I've tried!
    The crunch is really the strong point of this amp one obtains the typical sound of the JCM800 without deafen half the neighborhood.
    The lead channel is good too, but requires lower treble, under penalty of being slightly too loud (for my taste)

    The reverb is excellent.

    SOUNDS

    Suited to rock and hard rock.

    Used with a strat and a les paul.

    OVERALL OPINION

    For years, I tried a number of amps: this is one of those who has impressed me the most, in terms of sound quality and versatility.

    The value for money is very good!

    THE sound Marshall

    Marshall TSL100Published on 05/11/14 at 02:22
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    All lamps (4 * 4 * 12AX7 + EL34)

    1 guitar input
    1 footswitch jack
    2 effects loops
    1 emulated output
    3 speaker outputs

    100 watts RMS (25 watts RMS switchable by pressing a button on the front)

    Integrated spring reverb

    UTILIZATION

    Sound very easily, which sounds off immediately obtained.

    Note that the sound becomes less noisy once the bias set to 82mV (very simple to do).

    At first, the sight of all those buttons may seem unsettling, but once try a few hours, it becomes very intuitive and easy to adjust.

    The manual provides information that can be used by persons not familiar with this type of amp.

    SOUNDS

    With 3 channels (clean, crunch and lead), it really gets all the sounds you want, ranging from pop to metal, to pop rock, rock, blues, hard rock, etc. ...

    It is very versatile and great on all channels!

    (I play it with a Gibson SG, a Fender Marauder and an Ibanez Prestige, and the head is connected to a 4x12 JCM 800 lead series)

    OVERALL OPINION

    Bought it a few months ago.

    I had the opportunity to have a lot of different amps in recent years, and this amp is the one who has more than most.
    Unlike everyone else, I'll keep this one.

    Excellent quality / price ratio!

    In the shop all the time

    Marshall TSL100Published on 07/30/12 at 10:25
    Here's a tube monster that I was totally psyched to acquire. I was able to get a great deal through my local shop, so I ordered a brand new one, right from the factory to the store and I was there to open the shipment. This is a 3 channel 100 watt beast that has plenty of power for almost any playing situation. Plenty of switches including fx loops, deep, Virtual Power Reduction, Separate Reverb for Clean and Crunch/Lead channels, Mid Boost Switch for tonal options on the Clean channel plus Tone Shift on the Crunch and Lead channels

    UTILIZATION

    Yes, this amp will sound decent almost right away. Throw the dials to noon and crank it up and the sounds will be workable. The controls are intuitive, so I never even looked at the manual.

    SOUNDS

    I have lots of guitars at my disposal, but I mainly used my Gibson Les Paul. I typically dialed in a clean tone that was mainly crystal, with a smidge of dirt. I would also dial in a high gain sound, and use the guitar's volume controls to create alternate lo/mid gain tones. Typically went with the DEEP switch engaged and often used the VPR (Virtual Power Reduction). The VPR knocks the wattage down; I'm not sure how, but it's clearly better than any attenuator I've used...perhaps it turns a couple power tubes off? I don't know, but it's effective for taming what is otherwise a super loud amp.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I had a dsl combo before this head, so i knew what i was getting into. Unlike many scathing reviews, I actually like this amp for the pop/punk/hard rock applications I used it for in my band. Super hi clarity and slices right through. Critics will say that the amp is a bit sterile and lacks the organic feel of the older famous Marshalls- but I enjoyed this modern take and the plathera of options the amp offers. But here's the issue that makes this amp a total ZERO- the transformer went out countless times. I kept going back to the shop, and even though it was covered on warranty, it was beyond annoying. One show it went out 30 seconds into the first song, making me turn to the next band and borrow his Line6 for the gig (ugggh). I shouldn't bag on the line6, at least that amp worked. I had the same issues with my combo. A quick look around the web says that this is a known issue that keeps happening, meaning that marshall just doesn't seem to care about improving it's product. I guess you could get a transformer upgrade, but at that price point I would recommend looking at the countless other "marshallesque" options that are out there. i would have liked this amp- even though others say it is a bee buzzy disgrace. Crank up the volume and the quality drastically increases, if it works... Thumbs down!

    Marshall JCM 2000 TSL 100

    Marshall TSL100Published on 11/28/04 at 15:00
    I have not "aquired" this amp yet, but I've played it so many times at GC for hours that I know it so well. I beleive its the most expensive Marhsall Head. Does this mean it's the best...Definitly.

    This is clearly the best modern amp of its class. I love that the second channel has lenty of gain for a solid rythem, and then the you just might not need you overdrive pedal when you switch to the third and final channel. I've heard this amp cranked to "10" while standing very far away, and I swear there is nothing that could ever sound so sweet. For shredders and punk rockers and metalfreaks, this amp truly covers it all. What I like about this unit: It is the mother of all units.

    They should somehow get a built in delay unit in the JCM line. I know that Marshall's delay in the AVT series is great.

    Very Strong. No problems here.

    This amp obviuosly cranks but we are all past that, but people get all mixed up when they hear Mesa Boogie Rectifier, and Peavey 5150, and Marshall Mode Four, and Frames (actually the best ampplifiers for sheer, rediculous metal only...in the world), and Crate BLue Voodoo, and Ibanez, and Carvin. I will just tell you right now, that the JCM is the way to go...it's always been the way to go, and it will always be the way to go. All the gain, all the power, all the bottom end, all the screaming highs, and all the tone you will ever need is in this unit. The JCM2000 TSL 100 should be your dream amp. I suggest going to the stores and trying ever amp in the store. Do not settle for the combo version. Stack it up and crank it.

    Marshall TSL100Published on 06/15/04 at 15:00
    I bought my amp @ a local music store & this was an upgrade from a DSL 50 as I traded (2) DSL 50's for the 1 TSL 100

    The thing I love about the TSL 100 is it has (2) FX loops & for what I play that is great.Also having 3 channel's that are footswitchable is a big plus.

    To be honest I haven't found anything that I dis like about the amp.

    It is like any Marshall product built with tons of pride...I mean Marshall has set the standard for Rock & blues amps.Made with quality woods & parts.

    I would have to add ....if you thinking of buying an amp & your kind of stuck & not sure what to buy that most companies try to copy Marshall but most fall way short.

    Marshall TSL100Published on 10/24/02 at 15:00
    bought this amp new at Music Lovers Shoppe for about $800. I traded a Rocktron Voodoo Valve pre-amp, Stereo power amp and stereo 4X12 cab for it. I wanted to get rid of the complex MIDI setup I had and get back to some serious TONE.

    the TONE baby! The sound of this amp is pure Marshall, plus an amazing clean channel. The crunch channel is super chunky with strong mids and satisfying lows. Lead channel uses a more aggressive version of the same tone, while the clean channel will do everything from super clean tele tones to dirty blues. With the 4X12 cab this amp has more than enough headroom for almost any gig. If your looking for a great rock amp, look no farther. If you play Heavy M…

With the 4X12 cab this amp has more than enough headroom for almost any gig. If your looking for a great rock amp, look no farther. If you play Heavy Metal, check out Mesa/Boogie triple rectifier.

    It's very large and heavy so it can be a real drag (literally) to haul it around to gigs in my car. The tubes get HOT.

    Construction looks to be almost bulletproof. Seriously, the weight of this amp is considerable..it ain't made out of cheap-a$$ particle board! I have damaged the tolex covering on the cabinet by banging it into doorways and the trunk of my car but the 'road-scars' look good. It would take a lot of abuse to cause real damage. I suppose the tubes are the weak point and will need to be replaced someday but for now they are still rockin' like new after a few years in service.

    This amp sounds great and is built like a tank. If you want the ultimate Marshall tone I recommend it. Granted, it's expensive but well worth it.

Ms. ggain the bottom, it's a clean rcupre trs lens by turning down the volume on the guitar. The tone shift button allows you dig the sound by turning the mids, while the qual is generally more effective than usual, or else my ears make me default.

    OVERALL OPINION

    It is of Marshall, not suitable for the heavy and thrash, but still a good head and a great value to address the hard rock and lightweight.

    Good sound! you heat lamps, you play, you're happy! THE sound is always Submitted marshall, and thanks to the three channels DIFFERENT WELL you really feel that his money is well invested!

    SOUNDS

    Unfortunately I had my little bob (JCM 2000), I give him eating a Epiphone SG, but it is waiting for a Gibson SG Supreme, and will please him more!
    All types of sounds are affordable, even something a bit mtalleux, but not too much! nor gothiKKK! The blues in my opinion either, but if not .... PUNK ROCK GRUNGE the IF INDIE VISUAL ... great!! But I hate something that I can not play back due to my mother ... but is the fault of the JCM 2000 ???!!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for one week now ....... hihi!
    The most aprciable is full control over your sound, the precision! especially when one knows the amp and 54 buttons, the jcm 2000 will bcp!
    I tried the Warp7 the jcm 800, the AVT150H the MG15dfx (which should not say it?), The MG100dfx (frankly it also provides) a peavey head ...
    And frankly .... the baffle 1950 (1960 vintage pan and blow your head ... it's good lamp!
    Just be changed lamps? rgler and through a 82mV ?????

    I'm not advertising but Marshall remains in the rock, the best ... Thanks Jim ;-)
