From rehearsal room to live performance, the DSL100H all-valve head is truly versatile. With its Classic and Ultra Gain channels, it can take you from brilliant cleans to high-gain shred, and all places in-between. It’s based on the massively popular JCM2000 DSL100H, and has the same valve complement – four ECC83 in the preamp and four EL34 in the power stage – and the same feature set.
There are however some significant upgrades: Resonance control replaces the Deep switch, allowing you more control of the lower-end chunk; studio quality digital Reverb instead of spring Reverb; there’s a rear panel Pentode/Triode switch which drops power output from 100 Watt to 50 Watt which changes the amp’s sonic character and playing feel, and a rear panel series FX Loop.
The flexibility of the shared five-way EQ section is increased further by a Tone Shift button which scoops the mid frequencies, making it ideal for modern metal styles
