Is there such a thing as a Valve Marshall that doesn't have a 4/8/16 impedance switch?

The new DSL H series doesn't, evidently. If you look at the rear panel, there's no impedance switch anywhere

Some amps don't use a switch. They have different output jacks depending on the intended rating.

Anyone have a full pic of the rear head on the new DSL? I would find it hard to believe you don't have more than 1 option.

Really? That's some pretty serious cost cutting. I wonder how good the transformers themselves are if they think a bit of wire and a switch is worth removing.

not strange for an orange amp. def strange for a marshall. the originals had 16 ohm out and then a set of parallel switchable outs at 4/8 ohms.

I'll reserve judgement on the amp until I hear it myself.

i just played an original DSL the other day. i am glad i got an OR50H, seems much more versatile. the cleans on the DSL were better than i remember though.

Old DSL's have to be set up properly and then cranked to destruction, then they're awesome. But same for the Orange. Just different amps really. Once set up properly it all comes down to taste.

Well, since I always play in my bedroom (I live in a house though so it's all good), I hope the neighbors like it in the summer, when I have my windows jacked up all the way and I'm making those tubes burn like the sun.

Run it with 2 tubes pulled (inner two or outer two). You have to run the amp at half the impedance of the speakers to do it. Then switch to triode mode on the back. You've just dropped the amp to around 30W's You should be able to crank it then without hurting yourself.

And run JJ's in the preamp.

How would I go about running the amp at half impedance? Just click it down to 4 ohms?
Anyway that seems like good advice, considering I've heard tube watts are actually louder.

EDIT: JJ's?

Yes, just click it down one notch from where it was with all four.

I like how they say it has a darker characteristic. It doesn't sound too modern American, though, does it?

No. They are the perfect tube for a DSL (pretty much any Marshall). Buttloads of mids in true Marsallesque fashion.

Ya know, I was just thinking...
Its pointless for any of us to post in a technical amp related thread when Cath is here.
Especially if its a Marshall amp.

Well I'll take it into lots of consideration. I definitely don't think I'll stick with stock tubes.
