    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 - "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 …
