• New listingMarshall DSL 5C Valve Dual Channel Combo Amp Amplifier DSL5C

    <p>Marshall DSL5C Valve Dual Channel Combo Amp.</p><br><p>Bought from PMT in Bristol for playing quietly in the evening. The amp has sat pretty much unused with only a few plays over the last year. Fun to play and will get very loud. You can also plug in headphones or into an external speaker cab. Effects loop is useful for adding reverb. </p><br><p>At lower volume you can get a nice 60s british blues/rock sound and the 3 band eq helps dial it in. The lead channel will get you into heavier territory fairly quickly. </p><br><p>No damage or obvious marks on the amp, was taken out of the box since new and sat in one place. Sad to sell but it deserves to be played. </p><br><p>Comes boxed with foot switch, mains cable and instruction book. </p><br><p>UK postage only. </p><br><p>Thanks</p>

A fantastic cab with Celestion Vintage drivers that sound amazing. I say used but it's essentially in perfect condition and like-new; I've used it a total of around 10 times and it's just been sitting around doing nothing for a while now. I'm afraid to say though, that I can only accept collection as it is a large and heavy piece and I don't have the means to safely ship it. Message me if you have any questions.

  • Marshall JCM 2000 DSL 401 40 watt Valve Combo Guitar Amp And Footswitch

    A fine amp that I've had for a few years now. It's been gigged and has plenty of use but it's also been well looked after, only selling as I've got a bigger amp and don't have space for both. The only damage I'm aware of is two very minor scuffs to the back (see photos), and one of the LED lights on the footswitch is sunken in a little (but still works). Perfect working order, happy to answer questions.

Guitar Amplifiers

A guitar amplifier works by boosting the signal from a guitarso it can be sent to a loudspeaker and heard. Guitarists typically care little about how amplifiers work and are interested only in how they sound.

There are many different types of guitar amplifier available and they all create a different sound and have different qualities:

Practice amplifier

  • Small, low power amplifiers
  • Sometimes powered by batteries 
  • Ideal for travelling
  • Often very portable
  • Ideal for quiet practice late at night
  • Amps designed for beginners from around £20 to more advanced models for professionals costing £200+

Combo amplifier

  • Both an amplifier and built in speaker(s)
  • No need for an external cabinet
  • Span over a very wide price range from affordable amps to top of the range models depending on make and model
  • More portable than a head and cabinet
  • Usually more affordable than buying a head and cabinet  

Amp heads

  • Only an amplifier – requires an external guitar cabinet
  • Less portable than combo amplifiers as you need the cabinet
  • Some more tone options available as you can choose which cabinet to pair a head with
  • Usually more expensive to buy a head and cabinet than a combo

Modelling amplifier

  • Uses modern technology to digitally emulate the sound of other amplifiers
  • Multiple amp models in one amplifier
  • Many tone options
  • Often have built in effects and/or stompboxes
  • Offer a lot of versatility and tonal options
  • Can be combo or head designs

Solid state vs Valve/tube amps

Solid state

  • Uses solid state electronics such as transistors to amplify a signal
  • Generally more reliable
  • Require less maintenance
  • Less responsive
  • No true valve saturation


  • Uses vacuum valves/tubes to amplify the signal
  • More responsive to your playing
  • Often sound warmer
  • Preferred by many players for their tone and responsiveness
  • Valves need replacing after so much use
  • More fragile than solid state
  • Often more expensive than solid state
