DSL20 HR by Marshall Amps|Review & Sound demo

Let’s have closer look at the Marshall DSL20HR… again. Last time, it was just me and a buddy having at it in the rehearsal room. This time I have mic’ed the amp and will go through all the controls in more detail.

When it comes to record an amp through microphones I am the first one to confess that I am very far from being any good it. Might be practise will make perfect, who knows?! With that said, it came out pretty good besides the high-gain stuff, that feels a bit over-saturated compared to “the real sound”. Maybe it’s the proximity effect? I just dunno…

Anyways, the Marshall DSL20HR is, according to me, a fantastic little amp. It just sounds great and of course it sounds like a Marshall. The two channel is really separated with the ‘classic gain’ goes from close to clean to classic rock/hard rock gain, the ‘ultra gain’ goes from gain to metal. So, if you’re looking for a good amp for a nice, tame clean tone – look somewhere else.
