Gear Reviews


TopGuitar is proud to announce, that the DSL 40C electric guitar combo amplifier from Marshall had been reviewed for the July issue of the magazine and received a “Top Gear” editors’ award this month.

Below are some excerpts from a successful review by gear department editor Grzegorz Ufnal, which may serve as reasons for the award:

“DSL 40 – more portable than DSL 100 and louder than DSL 15, very useful and versatile, perfectly sums up the past 50 years of Marshall amps’ popularity. A very attractive price to sound quality ratio makes me believe that everyone who starts his adventure with Marshall from this model will probably stay with the brand for a long time or maybe even forever.”

“It’s hard to imagine how today’s music would look like without Jim Marshall, the maker of a trademark British sound. A continuation of the genius engineer’s thought is the line of new amplifiers that meet the needs of modern sound tendencies, offering wide capabilities. Such is the DSL series.”
