It says it all in the title. I'm not too sure how to take the back off my DSL401, so if anyone has any online guide they can link me to that would be awesome!

I need to re solder a volume pot btw.

Thanks

Did you try unscrewing some screws?

Yes and the back plate of it is kinda attached to the amp.

I dunno how the DSLs mounted, but usually in combos youll have to take some of the screws off the top of the combo to free the amp from the chase.

Be careful. If you get inside your amp and don't know what you're doing (which it sounds like) you can get yourself killed even when you're amp is not plugged in.



Yes I do know that, all I need is like a guide to take the amp out so my Dad can re solder it. He has a level in electrics so I wont be doing it myself obviously.

Oh, I think you got something wrong here. Amps in general don't have a "backplate". You have to take out the whole metal chassis to get access to the electronical guts.

All Marshalls that I know of (except really early combos) have some form of grille on the back of the amp/over the tubes.
This is what he's referring to.

TS: If there's anymore screws on the chassis (other than handles/feet/speaker ect) unscrew them.
Something is bound to get rid of it

Also I just wanna make sure it's a volume pot, every time I roll the volume up and down it makes a scratching noise and I have almost no volume.

Now if it's like a JCM900, the pots are mounted to a bracket made of thin angle iron which is then bolted to the front panel, you unbolt the bracket - plus you have to remove the nuts from input and footswitch socket. There are two or three screws holding the board down as well iirc.

Nah, DSL's are ****ing retarded.
I think they're mounted to less, but the pots are smaller and mounted to a tricker PCB

TS, it could be a valve.
