The mindset behind the DSL15H 15-Watt head is a simple one – take that world renowned DSL100H tone and make it available in a compact, low wattage, all-valve unit containing 4 x ECC83 valves in the preamp and 2 x 6V6s in the power-stage.
The DSL15H features two footswitchable channels (footswitch supplied): Classic Gain and Ultra Gain. As their names imply, each channel has a very different character. Classic Gain takes you from a shimmering, harmonic-enhanced clean to a 1959 style crunch when the Gain control is cranked. Ultra Gain, on the other hand, takes you into the world of modern high-gain and then some.
Both channels share a passive three-band EQ with controls for Bass, Middle and Treble. The Equalisation section also features a Tone Shift button which, when activated, shifts out the mid frequencies making the amp ideal for brutal, modern metal tones, especially when combined with the high gain settings of the Ultra Gain channel. The Equalisation section also features a control for Presence and a Deep switch.
Both of these equalisation enhancers are functions of the power-amp. Presence adds a variable high end 'bite' to your tone while the Deep switch adds a fixed, resonant bass boost to your sound – adding girth without muddying it up.
The ability to select either the full 15-Watts of output power or half-power (7.5-Watts) via the Pentode/Triode switch on the rear panel, adds further to your new DSL's already impressive feature set. The all-round tonal and gain versatility makes the DSL15H a superb and flexible performance tool for today's most demanding playing situations. Both 16 ohm and 8 ohm outputs are available on the rear of the unit.
