    Marshall 8040 ValveState 40V - " Great little amp"

    05/19/14

    Hybrid with one 12AX7 for a bit more warmth 1 input => 2 channels + effects loop Output power between 35 and 40 watts Lots of settings, but it has a stack tone that demands to be modified. UTILIZATION Easy to dial in. It's a pretty versatile amp…

    Marshall 8040 ValveState 40V - "Good amp, despite some defective components"

    05/14/14

    40w solid-state amp with tube preamp and one Valvestate 8040 speaker Manufactured in the '90s in the UK. That's where it gets its charm from. On the other hand, like with many other amps at this price point, the sound starts to "leak" after sever…

  • Marshall 8240 ValveState S80 Stereo Chorus

    Marshall 8240 ValveState S80 Stereo Chorus - "It was okay to start out with."

    08/25/13

    Not much to add (solid-state, pseudo hybrid ....clean channel 100% solid-state, OD channel with a marshall 12Ax7 tube). It's a pity it doesn't feature a headphone out or a speaker out to connect it to external cabs, with hindsight I would've really …

    Marshall 8040 ValveState 40V - "Hard to break"

    08/15/12

    40W amp with tube preamp and solid-state power amp. 2 channels: clean and boost with EQ each (bass/mid/treb for clean and bass/treb for boost) 1 gain control on each channel (which works as a volume control on the clean channel) 1 Contour co…

    Marshall 8080 Valvestate 80V - "Not a bad Marshall. It was OK - but NOT a JCM800. "

    05/08/12

    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 …

    "Small" solid-state Marshall with hybrid preamp: One 12AX7 tube. Only for the OD channel, as far as I can tell. Power: 80w (2x40) (incomparable to the 80w of a tube amp) 2 channels (clean/crunch, OD1/OD2) Chorus Spring reverb. 2 Celestion G12T s…

    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 8040 ValveState 40V - "Very good"

    06/29/11

    Hybrid amp with tube preamp (only 1 tube) and solid-state power stage. 40W with spring reverb UTILIZATION Very simple, 2 channels, each with EQ, footswitch included. Ultra simple, no need for a manual. SOUNDS Very good sound for this amp. Both th…
