jedge's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Gets the job done!"

Marshall 8008
Transistor amp 2 x 80 watts into 4 ohms, 2 knobs channel A and B


very simple no need for manual


for my use, I used it with my vox preamp for stereo effects only on my 2 cabinets marshall 1912.ALors the sound quality was a bit
cold for my taste with a digital effect TC rack but still had the power to go correct.Since use conventional attacks it gets the job done but it takes behind warm (pedals, preamp ...). Guitars used strat, tele .


I kept 4 years, but changed by a peavey classic has tubes all warmed ça.Excellent for a small budget and start a preamp / amp / speakers, reliability does not budge! but when you taste the tubes difficult to return to transistors ...

Marshall 8008
PowerAmp transistor, 2-channel stereo 2x80w.
Front, 2 volume knobs, one for each channel, and the on / off!
At the rear, 2 input, 2 output and a switch (ValveState and linear).

The look is simple, golden color typical Marshall!


Well, simply turn on the beast and put the volume at will ...


I only use my Line6 JM4 to amplify!
The rendering is very good ... more than a preamp in fact!
I plugged it in many preamp Marshall (ENGL E530, JMP1, Piranha), and the sound was not as good with a Rocktron Velocity (also transistor, but 120w), a Brunetti Rockit, or that a E840/50 ENGL ...
It lacked a bit of body volume and low volume High precision!

I wanted to say this, but this is not to "break" this unit, far from it!
€ 80 OCCAZ we can do better!
In fact, I use it almost every day not to turn a head lamp to play only 20 minutes, and it helps me very well!

To quibble, it may be missing a knob "definition" (tone) channel ... <div>Sometimes, randomly, i like to insert stuff in my rear (and I don't mean tubes...)</div>


I tried several PowerAmp (cited in "sounds"), but for my use, it is perfect. My JMP1, I prefer my Velocity 120.

The QPR is excellent.

He does what is expected of him, but if this is to put a preamp lamps, high-end, this is not what is best.
It does not color the sound cons.

PS: I state again that I bought this unit only to plug my looper / sampler Line 6 JM4 ... not to go again with a good Preamp (even if out of curiosity, I tried, of course )!

Blueblast's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Marshall 8008
2x80 watts transistor
Valvestate a button (lamp simulation)
Input and output jack
2 Separate volumes


No manual
Very easy just 2 volumes


It is a power amp transistor side so it is very neutral color
The switch adds a touch Valvestate Marshall not transcendent but not bad


I have for many years, never worries, is the power, I use it with a 2x12 cabinet and a valvefx in NoS, and repeated in concert, for the price it is really very good.
Small flat, rather to my config (2x12), a low volume chamber, the sound can appear without dynamic, so attention chamber test that can disappoint. We must put the volume at 9 o'clock the very least to feel the good momentum of the craft.

sam66's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Marshall 8008
a transistor amps deliver 2 * 80 watts (80 watts of stereo by "side")
volume for each side in front of A and B
behind setting Valvestate or "line" in fact it influt the "rendering" of sound.


config from simple volume and two behind the choice of "rendering" style fortification or "modern"
no manual is all very simple, the loop connecting the outputs for the speakers tt is very clear
the sound is fairly neutral
the power is there, I'm switching from a marshall jvm 410 tt lamps, but the Valvestate is great for those who have an adjacent rack with miulti-effects is a 1U rack so it does not take place trops It is ultimately not so heavy in the fly-box and a couple has two speakers or a stereo cabinet gives its well
two volume knob is rather simple and more settled not taken head on that side!


it depends on the material used and plug in (so listen to)


I used it for 5 years, and he is filled role to perfection, then certainly this is not a tube amp and this sense when going to the lamps, but in my rack of the day j ' had a digitech gsp artist has preamp valve behind the lights and the solution was not very expensive for:

1) be a boost without lugging a semi trailer
2) To play in stereo
3) have enough power to play at home again and live in
which after all is just what one has asked all our gear!
I would do this choice if I went up a rack of effects because of okaze it's really a matter
but my finances are changed and the lamp has warmed up my heart and my ears since ....
