Marshall has specialized in the production of valve amplification since 1962. The unique tone and playing response of the valve has formed the cornerstone of the Marshall "Sound of Rock," which we have modified over the years to cope with the changing demands of the evolving guitar player.
Imagine an amp head which draws on all the massive, wide open classic valve power of the original Super Lead Plexis, but with control facilities to take you through the full 36 years of Marshall tonal heritage and beyond. A head which is packed full of all the classic Marshall valve openness and roar that you could ever want, with more massive gain capability and a clean sound quite unlike any Marshall before. This description fully fits the DSL50 Dual Super Lead.
