Marshall DSL20H – Test & Review!

Marshall DSL20H – Test & Review!
…by Have Guitar

In this video we’ll take an extensive look at the Marshall DSL20H tube amplifier – can you get a better tube amplifier in this price range?! This little head can do most styles and let have a look at the spec’s:

2 Channels (Classic gain and Ultra gain)
20W switchable to 10W
Outputs: 3 x 1/4″ (16/8 Ohm load) + 1 x 1.35 mm jack emulated line out
Inputs: 1 x 1/4″ instrument jack, 1 x 1,35 mm jack aux in, footswitch
FX Loop w Send/Return
Digital Reverb built-in
Preamp valves: 3 x ECC83
Power amp valves: 2 x EL34
Weight: 9.7 kg / 21 lbs

So this is small and light, can go from close to clean to screaming gain, has loads of EQ options and can be bought brand new for less than 390 euros / 440 USD. I was totally impressed by this little power pack and would not mind getting one myself.

Would also like to throw in that this was the first time we recorded at this location, the light was worse than I though so next time I’ll bring my studio lights. Also the sound is picked up as we hear it in the room but, next time I think still I should place the microphones close to the speaker.

Katana amplifier from Boss – Building a liveset

Katana amplifier from Boss – Building a liveset

So I have played around with the sneaky amps of the Boss Katana and started building a liveset with them. This is it! Or rather, it’s the second take…!

Getting the Boss Katana to sound good isn’t that hard in my opinion. Capturing those sounds, that’s another story. I did a first video awhile back but was not pleased with the outcome so thus this is the second take. In this video I have used both microphones and lined recordings but I still have to say that these sound settings sounds a lot better in real life!

You can find the link to this Liveset below, do download it and try it out for yourself!

I do hope you like this video and if you do – pretty please subscribe to Have Guitar! A Very Big Thanks to all old and new subscribers, your support is inevaluable!
