Not a bad Marshall. It was OK - but NOT a JCM800.

Marshall 8080 Valvestate 80VPublished on 05/08/12 at 18:09
Solid state, 80 watts of power (too much for a 1x12, imho). 2 Channels, one which is tube preamp'ed for gain. I don't remember if it had a cab / out jack... I might have mod'ed mine with one if I remember correctly. 1x12 Celestion speaker, white label I think.

UTILIZATION

I used this amp as a 'backup' for a few years, and while the controls never really bothered me it was super heavy and a big PITA to haul around. I don't think it had a Cabinet out jack, which ticked me off at the time.



SOUNDS

Sounded pretty good, I don't agree with some reviewers that it sounded horrible. You would be hard pressed to find a Marshall that sounds like dog droppings.

SOUNDS

The tube in the preamp stage made the dirty channel OK, but it was still lacking something. Maybe because they used an ECC83? instead of a 12AX7 or something.
The cleans were merely OK, and not even close to my Fender tube amps.

OVERALL OPINION

It was OK. As a backup. Wouldn't want it as my 'main rig' though. I could play over the drummer, and FX sounded good through the clean channel, but not GREAT. It was kind of unreliable too, but that's probably because mine was used so much, and for a great number of years before I owned it. After replacing some POTs, and getting it serviced though, it was a good backup amp.

Marshall Valvestate 8080

Marshall 8080 Valvestate 80VPublished on 01/07/04 at 15:00
i got this amp second hand from a freind

well at the time i thought it was a really good amp. I mean it had two channels, one is clean and the other is the overdrive channel. They are handy if you like playing the blues, or getting a simmaler sound...Apart from that there isnt a lot more on the amp. Its quite loud and its got a marshall name on it. its got a big twelve inch speaker...thats about it.

the fact its a bit limited and the clean channel keeps cutting in and out.

its alright

buy this amp if youre a marshall fan, but not if you like the sound of your guitar

Marshall Valvestate 8080 Combo

Marshall 8080 Valvestate 80VPublished on 01/02/04 at 15:00
I've bought this combo used in a store i paid 200€ for it


I like the fat sound of the pre-amp tube and the volume of this thing, this sucker is LOUD! Good contour knob on the Boost channel goes from blues type thing to trasher distortion in one turn!

I'd like a more Low-end response from the speaker its a bit trebly! and i'd like a external speaker jack it would be useful!

the construction is tank like!

Good combo! very reliable and it sounds very good on recordings mic it with a good micro and you'l see what im talking about!
