    Sonorities type metal old school, certainly if you are looking for a modern and clean distortion, this amp is not for you.
    Perfect for the old black metal, punk or other dirty sound.

    Marshall VS100RHPublished on 06/26/02 at 15:00
    My friend and bass player in my band told me about a great deal at a local Music-Go-Round. I needed a new amp and I was looking for a good amp that would handle a lot of raw tones, specifically distortion. I was lucky to find that the stack was only $460.00 used. It was the best deal I ever made in my life.

    I love the overdrives, I switch between both of them, and the reverb is great too. The cab and the head are both super-light and easy to haul around. It is very good in keeping up its look. I have many shows and it has yet to loose parts or get damaged. It's a Marshall, so I knew it would hold up well.

    My friend and bass player in my band told me about a great deal at a local Music-Go-Round.

    I love the overdrives, I switch between both of them, and the reverb is great too. The cab and the head are both super-light and easy to haul around. It is very good in keeping up its look. I have many shows and it has yet to loose parts or get damaged. It's a Marshall, so I knew it would hold up well.

    I really dont like the clean channel on it too much. I don't really use it a lot, but there is a crackle to it whenever I hit a chord too hard, and it is really annoying. It was most likely the result from the previous owner of the amp, I knoiw the amp was not built with the defect in the channel.

    The cabinet and the head are both covered in white. That is why it is so special. It is a limited edition that came out of Musician's Friend. It is just like any other Marshall half stack in the AVT series. It is very sturdy.

    The bottom line is I am happy I bought it. It has a lot of power and it can fit any type of music that you are into. I definitely recommend this amp.

    UTILIZATION

    Operation is simple.
    In his clear, a Tone Shift button to switch between a clear Vintage sound more modern, more Dfine Tone.
    In the saturated, the product of an overdrive sound from a sound lgrement crunch sound bluer / rock style AC / DC.
    The overdrive 2 has more gain. In addition, a call contour knob gives the characters sound. At a minimum, has a pai blues sound like smoky bar and the bottom was a well metal. It therefore has the full range of its intermdiaire.
    The eq has no drastic action but are still musical.
    It is easily the sound you want, especially if one considers that there is a power button size that works as a sort of Power Brake allg. We can therefore obtain low power, a sound very similar to the sound that would be obtained if you push the amp back, especially at the grave.

    SOUNDS

    The amp meets normment the guitar you use. Especially in his clear, the difference between a simple micro scratches and scrapes a dual microphones is perfectly rendered. These same sounds clearly benefitted from an excellent monitoring of the dynamics and trs pure, it's hard to believe it's a Marshall. It is not clear sounds dignent a Fender Twin, but it moves away as if a.
    The distorted sounds when they are also excellent. With an overdrive, there are the sounds of a JCM 800. When the overdrive 2, we say a more Boogie, with its massive, super thick and sharp, ideal for metal rhythm. Solo, the guitar "sings", and although the sound CONTRL.
    Trs good for the price.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use this amp for 8 years. I still tonn its sound worthy of a higher end amp. I prfre even its "big ERRF" The series of JCM.
    While this is not an ENGL or Boogie, but for the price, it's really the top, and budget gal, I no referrer hsitation this choice, more than the amp is trs versatile with both the clear and beautiful sounds saturated standards.

    The manual is thick and that's good, the base is, for us to get by.

    SOUNDS

    Well it's not just a lamp, then something is missing but the sound is very good for the price.

    The overdrive is warm, fat. The crunch a little too dry but with a chorus sometimes it's better.

    The clean sound is passable.

    Little regret for the reverb that is built very light. Opt for a reverb pedal or a multi-purpose.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had about eight years. He had some problems at the beginning (of the fuse between the gate all the time), I changed the Marshall amp with no problem.

    This is a great amp for playing in his first group, it is quite versatile and can be fun. I will move to a lamp and I confess all look to the Marshall saw the good feeling that left me with this amp.

    On my amp, the knob in the effects loop is mounted upside down but somehow it is not used much, because the mix is ​​not very effective ...
    In short it is not the top of the technology, but Honorable especially for the price. There's everything you need anything!

    UTILIZATION

    There's no easier in fact. You can play with a basic configuration, just plug in his guitar and turn the knobs (not to mention the volume ...) and there's the sound that comes out, it's magic!

    No seriously, the use is not so simple if we are to mount a further configuration, style, effects loop with multi-effects in the loop. But not rocket science. Anyway, Marshall amps are known for their appearance "Plug'n'Play", which made them successful. There may be circumstances to make complex settings if you want, although the EQ is not super accurate. That's enough for some styles and not others ...

    SOUNDS

    Moi ca me. But that is where it usually thickens because it seems that here the sound Marshall is "either you love or hate it." For my part I love!

    I'm using a Charvel 1991, 475 Deluxe model I think (well it's such a mess at Charvel I did not know ...), rise in active pickups and granted Drop A # (Bb) to death metal. In short you will understand, I do not lace. But contrary to what many here think, Marshall for the big death metal and in particular is excellent! There's one particular grain and its super compact ideal for rhythmic death. Indeed, one wonders why all the major groups of death metal US (Obituary, Suffocation, Nile, Deeds of Flesh, etc. etc.) play or have played on Marshall amps. Is not it? Just because it's tough, there are parts around the world (in practice rounds) and it sounds more the fire of God!

    Of course, they are for these groups of JCM, the big brother of all Marshall. But even with this "small" Valvestate VS100RH we obtain the same grain so special and a very thick, which sends its grave. The amp supports super well all types of low tunings (I have friends who play on AVT150H Drop ...) and little we know a little noise criteria necessary for this style, you can have ZE SON! There's enough gain to play any style of metal (I'm in 3 quarts, and again ...), not need the Power Dimension, which makes it useless. An equalizer with little bass, and a lot of media (and not V, because A # is the porridge when playing in groups), this is a sound US déchire.Bien, but a little old-schoool . It's a little too thick in some déplara sometimes imprecise but it has its charm ... It's not a JCM 2000 either ...

    Well, OK! To me that fits me, but I am a metal. Apart from the death metal that is what happens? Well for other types of metal, such as neo, or heavy, the sound is airy enough to get good sound with OD2, so for this style is best to look elsewhere ... With the OD1, we can get good rock sounds, similar to a JCM900 and less well. By pushing it makes the hard, punk or old thrash but nothing too fascinating. OK at best.

    The crunch, I use it ever ... I do not like.

    The clean is not bad, nice if we add a little reverb or chorus on top. With the button ToneShift, we get a small range of different sounds. But it snaps quickly, and as all Marshall (even with tube amps), the crystal clear sound fades quickly with the volume. The fans are all clean sounds Fender guys ...

    I use a BOSS GT6 as multi-effects only, and it sounds pretty, but it could sound better. The effects loop of my amp is pretty shitty (I do not know why) and I get a sufficient result by connecting between the guitar and amp. It takes away opportunities, but when we play the tape it will be brutal!

    This gives specific advice on the sound. On the one hand, the extreme metallers will be delighted by this amp, which is the best quality / price ratio for death metal or whatnot. On the other hand, others who are disappointed zikos. But make no mistake, this amp is ideal for extreme metal. Since I am objective, I put 9 / 10 for extreme styles and 6 / 10 for others.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a long time, a few years. I am eyeing the Mesa / Boogie, Engl, or on the JCM2000, but eventually I took this head because I really needed to have sound without ruin me. And that's really the strength of the head. Readily available between € 300 and € 350 for OCCAZ 'can have big sound for cheap ...

    What I like is that for a small fee, you can get the sound that made its credentials in the early 90's in the major groups of death metal 'Rican and even tickle the more modern sounds that are JCM2000 territory. For this style, there's no denying it, it's all good. This lack of versatility, but after all? When you have found the style of music we like, and its ideal to play this style. Why go further? If I had to make another choice, it would certainly be a JCM2000 ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    Advantages:
    - The price (of OCCAZ are ways to find less than 300 and less than 500 with a 4 * 12 of range)
    - The sound: This amp is never left in repair, I use it in a studio to repeat in which many bands play it and .... it's one of the few that do not fall breakdown
    - The simplicity and ease of use in finding an acceptable sound.
    - With a ton of effects can be properly adjusted to have a fucking her very sharp (messhuggah was useful for its beginners)

    Inconvnients:
    - I never find a good sound worthy of the name (with the head only)
    - So I feel obliged to play with a multi effect in terms of price then we will say that amp + multi effects (200 euros) makes a sound bah ca 5OO euros more. For when one has consquent 700 euros (or nine OCCAZ) you can have better quality amp is better to wait a bit to buy his amp s.
    Conclusion:
    This is an amp that is a good investissment for rehearsal studios for musicians, but I suggest you look elsewhere for your happiness and make a choice more objective

    SOUNDS

    Preamp tube, giving her a rather bold and warm (no, no jokes ?!!!) to all. With distortion, it also shows to advantage, with a tint, not surprisingly, very blues / hard rock. It was therefore a marshall, but on the other hand, this sound, effective, is often heard in short, difficult to stand out in "type" of sound. But hey, we know what to expect or what to look when acquiring a marshall.

    However, 100 watts, I think so! Indeed, the guitarist of one of my former group had a fender hot road deluxe all-tube (of course you will say, but still!), 40 watts: the volume was 3-4, 7-8 to mine , and I still can not hear me (in fact it shows on our records at the time). Clearly, the dynamics of this amp is very low, addition, another drawback of transistors, do not be surprised if you are receiving the radio on your amp, I do not often come ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    I used this amp for 3 / 4 years before selling to a Peavy classic 30, in fact, I was fed up to capture the radio on, to not get along in spite of the volume group pushed to 3 / 4, and, frankly, I finally got tired of her, heard too much for my taste (you know, we feel that listening to certain songs, we enjoy good incidentally) j ' felt like a more expressive and his staff, however, to start a group (as long as the 2nd guitarist was not just a lamp) or for fans of the marshall who can not afford to buy a all lamps, it is a good alternative; Similarly, fans of blues or hard to navigate without a doubt.

    Finally, I find this amp actually quite expensive, it seems that we pay a high price for the brand, it is no longer manufactured in nine (replaced by the Valvestate 2000), but at the time, I 3800 balls still get paid (just over 550euros) ... expensive for the transistor (yes, yes, the hybrid, but it is closer to the transistor as an amplifier of all lamps), especially now that we find very good for tube amps to slightly more expensive (compared, cost me my classic 30 695 euros (and again, it was There are 2 years old) especially OCCAZ. So unless you want at any price a marshall amp, better buy lights at all, it sounds downright better, or for the addicted to the brand, and save a bit much to pay for a jcm 2000, for example ...
