  • Marshall 8080 Valvestate 80V

    Marshall 8080 Valvestate 80V - iamqman's review

    07/09/11

    Why on earth would you need 80 watts of this amp is beyond me? This amp sounds terrible. It is sort of a hybrid amp with a preamp tube ECC83 in the preamp section. This is to get people who know that tube amps sound better in the digital solid state …

  • Marshall AVT100

    Marshall AVT100 - "Good for practice"

    07/09/11

    This amp is one of Marshall's amp modeling digital amps that has three channels and a pretty good tone for practicing. This amp is another one in the line of amp modeling that tried its best to keep up with real tube amps but never can quite match th…

  • Marshall AVT50H

    Marshall AVT50H - "Not Marshall's best"

    07/08/11

    This is a cheap amp from Marshal in just about ever way. The tone is thin and fizzy at best an the overall feel of the amp is sub par. This amp doesn't have the feel of what you would think when they claim the tube feeling of the amp. The power secti…

    Marshall 1987XL Vintage Series 50W Tube Head - iamqman's review

    07/08/11

    This is one of the classic Marshall amps that still give me hope in this company. even though they are now producing amps that are flat out terrible and even some more expensive than this one. They can still save face with amps like this. These amps …

    Marshall MG15DFX - "Good practice amp"

    07/08/11

    These MG DFX series amps one feature that separate them from the others...FDD. I will talk about it later on. This is the 15 watt model and same tone as the other watt amps. They are able to tap a good market with this amp with the price point they s…

  • Marshall DSL100

    Marshall DSL100 - "Great low priced amp!"

    06/30/11

    This amp has been one of my all time favorite amps to play. It is so easy to dial in and works so well for gigs. I got a chance to play one at a buddies house once and I knew once I hit that lead 2 button that I had to have it. I had this amp for the…

    Marshall JMD100 - "Suprisingly not too bad"

    06/30/11

    I have heard two of my favorite guitar player play through this amp, Paul Gilbert and Doug Aldrich. I actually heard Doug from about 5 feet away at NAMM a couple years ago when this amp came out. Of course he can make just about anything sound decent…

  • Marshall 1960A [1990-Current]

    Marshall 1960A [1990-Current] - "Can't ask for much more in a cabinet!"

    06/28/11

    The Marshall 1960AV and BV cabinets are some of the best cabinets I have owned. I currently own a 1960BV and used to own a 1960AV. The only reason the AV is gone now is that I downgraded from a fullstack to a halfstack. The cabs are made really well,…
