About the Marshall JCM2000 DSL100:
The Marshall JCM 2000 DSL100 amp is a 100 watt all tube. It has 2 channels, classic and ultra. Each channel has two modes. Classic has clean and crunch and ultra have lead1 and lead2. So it’s really 4 channel if you count the two modes in each channel. The Crunch mode on the Marshall JCM 2000 DSL100 in clean has a very light 70’s “bluesy” style overdrive. The Ultra distortion is quite heavy and better suited to hard rock. The difference is that lead 2 is basically lead 1 with more fuzz.
Countless hours of R&D and of course listening went into the creation of the 100 Watt DSL100. DSL is an acronym for ‘Dual Super Lead’, so it should come as no surprise that this amp has two foot-switchable channels. Furthermore, each of these channels boasts two modes. So the Classic channel offers a Clean / Crunch option while the Ultra offers Lead 1 or Lead 2. SO Each one of these four modes has been individually voiced as an amp in its own right.
The tremendous tonal versatility of this amp, coupled with a 100% pure valve signal path (4 x ECC83s, 4 x EL34s), Dual Reverb controls, a Tone Shift switch which ‘scoops out’ the mids and a Deep Switch that adds a tight, bowel loosening, low-end boost, caused the guitar world to sit up and take notice right from the outset.
The JCM2000 DSL100 was manufactured at the Marshall production facility in Bletchley, England between 1997 and 2011.
