    Marshall 8080 Valvestate 80VPublished on 11/28/14 at 13:32

    80 Hybrid w. 1 12AX7 preamp / amp transistors. There is no dynamic bad for a transistor amplifier and is not eaten by the drums and bass. On condition of not being next to a tube amp, of course, much more dynamic.

    UTILIZATION

    The clean sounds are not terrible. The satisfactory crunch sounds. Are obtained "metal" sounds very good, quite satisfactory as well (but without the natural compression of lamps), and this is important, it respects the guitar that amplifies.

    SOUNDS

    We are talking about a sound that wants Marshallian. And indeed, we are on those lands. Of course, it is far from a JCM 800. But the spirit of the brand is there. I play metal for almost thirty years (and punk, and hardcore ... well, stuff rather hairy, what) and I have always found my happiness (or almost). It is of course that I do not amuse myself, as some would do, play my minx like "oh I have a Soldano..et I compared my Bogner ;; well then ... he is really a lot less. " You amaze me !!! We are talking about a hybrid amp that no longer exists as OCCAZ 200 balls. And in this category, I put him a good 8 ... because I play metal and it is perfect for this style.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I bought this amp in 1994, I think. At the time, this amp was great because it allowed not too expensive to afford an amp with a sound approaching lights (the only amp before this one were transistors or lamps. But these were priceless to that time, much more expensive than today proportionately). I scoured the scenes, coffee backrooms of the most beautiful rooms in all conditions, carted in the trunk of the car, he took bowls and bread not possible. Yet he never let go. I've had several amps lamps theoretically much better (and Ultra + Peavey 5150, JCM800) ,. But he will never leave me. I still use it every day with as much fun (besides, I still play hardcore and metal). This is a wonderful amp amp for beginners (or for home exercise old fogies like me): simple, reliable, and will largely for the first gigs ... I say beginner but I know it is found in many pro studios where it is used for some overdubs (eg besides the studios I attended, I saw behind Toni Iommi, in the studio, in a doc on recording the new album Black Sabbath).

    80 Watts are real watts, but the Valvestate is a selling point, because lamp, there is an unfortunate light on the card.
    Change lamp and you change the sound, it is valid on all the amps, especially this one.

    UTILIZATION

    The config is simple, the manual is useless.
    Getting a good sound will depend on:
    the age of the machine
    what you call a good sound
    lamp as set gugus that you sold
    In case you have a great sound in the other sound will ch ...
    So I put 5 because it is either 3 or 7.

    SOUNDS

    On this amp, I play the big rock that spot quite unbalanced. Otherwise, I have the Fender Twin and JC120 when I want a chiseled sound. If want a chiseled her, forget this amp, it is a raw sound. It has the Marshall sound, but do not fool around, it's not a head lamp 100 wadding, this is a portable schoolboy. With a mesa preamp, it's better.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I recovered carafe there two years and I repaired. For over 40 years I tried amps that gave me joy, tears, a desire to fuck the window, shots of juice that crushed my feet crushed genitals (when I fell on gas plants). One, he is honest, not that bad, but horribly lousy electron level.
    Given the price of Cygnus is a good Q / P to play with a deaf drummer and have (almost) sound at Marshall.

  • Marshall offers a dynamic and seduction

    This is a hybrid amp. The clean part is controlled by transistors and saturated by a 12AX7 tube channel. It is 80 watts very present delivered by good old Marshall. I say "good" because we will see after it has everything to make.

    Independent settings are provided for the clean part and others to the saturated part (low, treble, mid). We surcharge adjustment for reverb, presence but also a setting 'outline' for emphasis mediums.

    Regarding the saturated channel, there is a choice between option OD1 and OD2.

    Note the presence of an effects loop with the ability to adjust the volume.

    So far, this is complete and there is something to tweak 'VERY EASILY' its settings.

    Note the presence of an effects loop with the ability to adjust the volume.

    So far, this is complete and there is something to tweak 'VERY EASILY' its settings.

    UTILIZATION

    Setup is simple. In my opinion, there is not need the manual. we obtain easily the sound settings with low, mid and treble.
    For me the important part is the level adjustment presence where there how aggressive you choose. But above all, it is the 'Contour' button which will give the final touch. It plays on the presence of mediums, opting to treble or bass. This is really a setting that gives the amplitude to the sound of the amp.
    So that I found very quickly (my) right settings and I sincerely believe that all of these settings allow you to offer a wide range of sounds depending on whether you want to play the blues or address registers more aggressive.

    SOUNDS

    Again, when choosing a Marshall, you accept the fact that it is one of those amps that have a very typical sound.
    I do not address here the problem of versatility as the dexterity of some guitarists can play all styles of music with any amp.
    But it is true, a Marshall is done to address the rocks and logs everything that is so rich in general sustain and gain.

    It should not be here to have a complex amp transistor (hybrid here) compared to a tube amp. Sometimes, a good transistor amp surpass a mediocre amp lamps.
    It must be recognized that Marshall has amazed me by its dynamism and sound. A clean sound probably average, but perfectly acceptable with a Strat. Regarding the saturated part. I love it. I use here the more likely option OD2 (the OD1 section provides a nice crunch, but OD2 and playing with the volume knob, I prefer).

    I'm not a fan of pedals and other effects pedals and here, I can confirm that if you want an amp with this simplicity that everyone dreams of having, and plays the guitar is plugged, and although this amp plays a great role in this.

    And nothing prevents to put a little chorus or delay in the loop to refine the sound.

    And as mentioned above, the settings are complete and there is something easily find the right settings. For me it is almost entirely 6 (low, mid and treble), gain between 2/3 and 3/4 as appropriate, and outline 3/4 (but here are my settings).

    A saturation that is not necessarily with all tube amps that are not 'high gain is obtained. This means that the gain and distortion makes no effort to attack all well pêchus registers (can not be metal, huh).

    Finally, this amp accepts carefree good distortion pedal on the clean channel. Marshall grain is still present if we take care to put it a foot remaining neutral.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for very long. I try, in the description of this amp to be as objective as possible, having compared to other Marshall tube and next to which he did not blush, far from it.
    You can you afford beautiful little scenes (the sound is generally the rest when an SM 57 before we met).
    I love this amp for its convenience, simplicity and generosity in the rendering of sound.
    Where it should be goal is to always take into consideration the combination of amp and guitar. Critics of an amp are testing it with several guitars. What I actually did.
    What makes me say that even though this amp is not a Fender Strat with a, we get very good cleans. In contrast, good saturated saturations are not obtained with microphones low level of output. Thus, with good microphones, a SG or a LP (I do no favors by brand!), This amp ensures a level of gain and sustain really stunning.

    Also, it is repeated, it is often referred to knobs that sizzle in Marshall etc, etc ...

    Like any instrument which is aging more, a minimum of care and regular maintenance is required.
    I can assure you that after all these years, no knob has been replaced or sizzling. When the amp was not heckled wildly or stored in a damp place.

    This is an amp that can easily make you go back to the 90s with sounds both vintage but with a nice touch of dynamism.

    I love Marshall, all models. There has not been, for me, good or bad. They were all different, with different qualities and orientations. Some do not like the JCM 800 but prefer the JCM 900 (and vice versa). It depends on what you want to do with his amp.

    For my part, this Marshall Valvestate 8080 also allowed me to not have to turn a tube amp for a few minutes or a few times in small places. And then you can play with and make virtually saturate muted (this is significant, have the dynamism without becoming deaf).

    I remake that choice without hesitation, and that reassures me is that we are still in very good working condition, at ridiculous prices.

The amp is transistor with a tube preamp on channel distortion. It has an effects loop on the front and its dedicated volume control.

    UTILIZATION

    Relatively rapid adjustments. Given the number of available knobs on the front of the amp, one quickly finds happiness with a minimum of determination and ears!

    SOUNDS

    This amp is suitable for both rockers as bluesmens, thanks to its versatility. Its not clear its rivals may not work with some amps Fender blues, but it is still quite warm and powerful.
    As for its saturated, it can play rock and roll with a slight distortion to the death metal fatter.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I used it fairly regularly for about 5 years before storing in an attic where he served very little. What I like most about this amp is its versatility that has allowed me to explore different styles before settling on things more accurate.
    Excellent value for money, I do not regret this choice, which at the time was the best possible.

    UTILIZATION

    Very simple configuration, the Marshall sound is there, we appreciate it quickly, we made it well (as old beginner / intermediate again). I bought it after selling my Line 6 (Spider III) and ... bah you can feel the wood of the guitar, metal strings ... Finally, what it sounds!

    I bought it secondhand, in my sports teacher ... he lost the manual before you sell me the amp but ... completely useless for my taste!

    SOUNDS

    Playing metal and magnet incorporate long passages of clean up to the mayo, I used! the clean channel is very respectable, the channel distortion (number 2, the most powerful!) breath away! quite advanced in terms of volume, each chord sounds like the start of a jet engine ... Something for the young budding metalheads. However bad reviews reveal that the amp does not fit all!

    connected directly from a gibson les paul (studio first prize), I avoid the effects! they are really useless for my style of play! I hesitate to buy a small chorus for a little more "flat" on the clean channel with reverb but it was already what it takes!

    Sounds very fat but still sharp on the OD2 channel, just what I need, what I like!

    The crunch channel is zero at c * st for my taste ... the OD1 does not serve me much but the blueseux have fun with.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a year, I tried many amps (vox, marshall master lead, zt, jet city), this amp is the friend of small budgets! found 200 € secondhand, I buy a present for my second apartment / room € 160 repeats found on the internet ... enjoy and the price of secondhand is ridiculous!

  • 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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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!

    I bought this amp in Edmonton for approx $650 Cdn

    The fat sound from the preamp valve, as well as the lead channel contour knob are excellent.


    nothing


    The inputs, as well as the power supply leads have had to be resoldered.


    This is an excellent amp, although Marshall has discontinued it. The 100 watt amp has replaced this model.
