Marshall DSL 100 Head Reviews 4

Marshall DSL 100 Head

The DSL 100 can be had on the used market for well under $1000, and for this price point its a great investment. The tones available in the DSL and many and varied, although its not without its issues, as mentioned above.

I wish they would put a choke in the amp to take pressure off the transformers. I always want to replace the transformers with Mercury but never got the chance.
