Marshall DSL5C reviewed in TopGuitar magazine

TopGuitar is proud to inform, that the November issue of the magazine features a review of the DSL5C all valve guitar combo amplifier from Marshall. The equipment was delivered for review by official Marshall distributor in Poland, Lauda Audio.

Below are some excerpts from a review by gear department editor Maciek Warda:

“DSL5C provides amazing precision and clarity of sound even with the most fiery distortion. The Ultra Gain channel is a direct reference to the famous 900, Marshall’s first hi-gain amplifier series. The sound is very sensitive to articulation and the whole preamp seems overreactive, almost like it wanted to play all those solos for us by itself.”

“The DSL5C combo is priceless when it comes to studio or home recording. It has an effects loop, a footswitch feature to change the channels (included with the amp!) and an output jack with speaker emulation that you can connect to a PA system or headphones. The package is completed by a small jack audio input.”

“It’s very pleasing that we can now enjoy the legendary tone of more powerful Marshall amps in a compact sized and relatively lightweight combo.”
