    There's a DSL1C in Strung Out Guitars in Glasgow. I don't know if they would be willing to ship it since it's a customer's agency sale, but you can always ask…

    I also don't know if you would consider £499 a reasonable price, but that will be down to the owner rather than the shop! Also worth asking if it's negotiable.

    Cheers chap. That’s a bit on the pricey side. I’ve seen some go for between £195 and £350. Thanks for the heads up though.

    Yes, fully agree - if it had been up to me it would have been going out for at least a hundred less, even given what they were new and that it's in perfect condition. I just don't think it's enough amp to warrant the original price, or a second-hand one based on the usual fraction of it.

    Worth asking in case you really wanted one at cost no object though :).

    There's always this... http://www.thefretboard.co.uk/discussion/114497/danplifier-matchbox-3w-high-gain-amp-now-with-video

    Easily changed from 3w to 1w by swapping the output tube.

    @kurtrowe2000 is a gentleman. Glad he's popped his head in for the banter!

    These are great little amps although owners/sellers get caught up in the whole limited edition/discontinued stuff a tad too much. 

    £250-300 is reasonable for a head/combo. Any more than that is wishful thinking

    Agreed. There's some silly prices on eBay but can't see anyone actually paying that!

  • Indeed. Here’s one chap looking for circa 699 for one, another for 450 and the recommended Glasgow shop won’t budge on their 499. All crazy really.

    I'm not even sure why they agreed to sell it for him at that price to be honest. It's never going to sell and makes the shop look overpriced if you don't know the reason.

    People seem to forget that it took the main dealers up to two years to shift the last of the 'limited edition', some for less than that *new*.

    Too true. I’m not fussed about it being a limited edition. Crazy prices. My dsl401 was cheaper.

    Hi chap. Thought about it but not quite what I’m looking for although it looks awesome. Thanks anyway.

    Is it the physical size that makes you want one or the fact you can crank it at home ?

    I ask as I've had a dsl 1 and a dsl 40, both a lot of fun and I found the DSL 40 was equally good at home volume , especially if you use the tone shift button.

  • It’s a bit of big chap. The main motivator is space. I have a DSL401 in my “music room” which is awesome. But need a smaller one for the lounge where I practice when my sons in bed. 

    Got it a blackstar ID Core 10 at the moment which does a job but want a smal valve combo, I’ve tried the blackstar 1 watt and just don’t like the tone. 

    Plus the ability to crank when I don’t have to be quiet is a bonus.

    I use a JVM-1 combo for the exact reason you mention however when you crank it, it's a fizzy mess. There is a ridiculous amount of gain even before say 9 o'clock. I use the 'clean' channel with pedals for flavour with the volume at about 9 o'clock (i'm very conscious of my neighbours!)

    I would consider something like a DSL 5C which has a 1 watt switch and even at new prices they are less than some of the 1 watt amps.

    Cheers mate. I looked that and really thought about it but it is physically too big for the space I have available.

    It's interesting reading this thread.

    You sound like you're interested in the same sort of models as I am / was when I was looking. I got a DSL5C last summer and love it. I then saw the JMP-1 on YouTube and felt like I had to have one but they are crazy money and I just can't justify it. I don't get the chance to crank the amp up much but the DSL5 does everything I need at low volumes and when I do get the chance to turn it up, it sounds great. It's not very big at all to be honest, mine is tucked in the corner of a bedroom and you wouldn't really know it was there.

    I agree on the Blackstars too, I went in to buy an HT5R and on first listen it seemed perfectly fine, then I tried the DSL and it was no comparison, the Blackstar sounded so bland. I'm not sure what else I saw when I was looking that would fit the brief you've described. A Bassbreaker 007? I tried one of them too when buying my DSL and was pretty underwhelmed.

    I’m with you. I love my DSL401. But it’s a beast. Need a smaller one for the lounge to fit under a coffee table. The DSL5 is just too tall for the limited space the missus will allow me. Otherwise I’d get one of them. 

    Ill just keep looking.

    Marshall are releasing a new 1 watt DSL around the end of November. Price looks to be around £255 for a head and £300 for the combo. It has built in reverb and a Softtube emulated Output so it has more features than the anniversary model. It might be worth holding off for one of these. Marshall got most of the retailers leaks plugged but Google cache still has a few floating about like below.

  • Hi Davy. Thats really Interesting. Marshall have just told me that they have no plans to release a 1 watt amp any time soon. Although this could well be a ploy to keep it quiet. 

    I hope ole this is right. As that sounds bang on what I’m looking for.

    Interesting! Thanks for those links.

    If it's to fit under a table, I see the dilemma now. I'm far from knowledgeable on these things, but I can't think of any amps I saw that were all that much smaller than the DSL I ended up with.

    One of those DSL-1s sounds ideal for me too. You have to love the wording of the direct translation as well. :)

  • Yeah. I have 40cm to play with. The 1watt Marshall’s are 36cm. Just hope those rumours of a new release are right. I’ll be first in line with my cash. Ha.

    There are quite a few new DSLs coming going by all the leaks from retailers. Thomann and numerous others had them all online with full details and prices. It looks like Marshall were quick to give them all a bollocking though and get all the links removed. There was a new EL34 powered DSL20HR, a new 40w, 100w and, if memory serves, a new 5w as well. The blurb said the EQ was tweaked, all had reverb and the Softtube emulated out. There's a thread on TGP about it with low quality pics of the new amps as well.

    Happy to help    Let's hope they do get them out for xmas. I'm quite interested in the DSL20HR myself.
