Like all the AVTs, its preamp section is based on a 12AX7 and delivers great tone.

This amp is excellent provided you know what to do.

It is a closed back cabinet, which means bass will too heavy, so heavy that it makes the OD channel muddy. Solution is to use an overdrive pedal as a clean boost to remove the bass. The result is killing tone in OD1 and OD2. Without overdrive pedal, it cannot bring justice to this amp. Also, wiith overdrive pedal, I can bring extreme gain to this amp

Another problem is the tube. I use Electroharmonix 12Axx7 tube for brighter sound, which compensates the darker sound due to closd back cabinet

I have a FULL tube amp Peavey classic 20 with open cab, and when I compare side by side. Both amps sound really good, with the Marshall has pronounced bass range. I cannot tell which one is tube, and which one is not. Both have very defined sound.

The scoope button is good for single person playing, but when I play with the background track, it has trouble cutting the mix, it scoope way too much. I even got a EQ pedal trying to compensate, but 15db in a EQ pedal simply is not enough

Emulated output sound too bright in my headphone playing

I play Metallica, and also some rock songs.It does not sound like Mesa, but it sound definitely an Marshall.

The AVT speaker is believed to be G12T100, I have compared the magnet size wiith G12T100. This speaker has a scoope sound, and punchy bass. It does not have harsh high end, and hence, the sound is very very warm. I compare the sound with my own peavey classic 20, it is much more warm.

I play OD2 most of the time.

I got 2 guitars.
Yamaha SE1220, alder body, neck through, tremelo, pickup is Seymour Duncan Parallel Axis Blues Saraceno. This pickup is a beast
Eppiphone Les Paul Standard, with GFS fatpat pickup

Alder body guitar may be sound too bright with this amp, but better in the lead
Les paul sound darker in playing metal, more punchier

A good amp with minor drawbacks

The 1st channel is worth the price alone. Good headroom and clean punch & shimmer. Crank the channel gain for great crunch. Can accomodate both humbuckers and single coils very well....Read complete review

The 1st channel is worth the price alone. Good headroom and clean punch & shimmer. Crank the channel gain for great crunch. Can accomodate both humbuckers and single coils very well. But if you want to go from clean to minor crunch, you'll need your guitar volume on ch 1. You'd think with 3 channels you'd get clean/crunch (ch 1) - crunch/overdrive (ch 2) - and overdrive/metal (ch 3). However, you get clean (1)- less distortion (2)- much distortion (3). The 2nd channel goes straight to OD even w/ lowest gain settings - a good OD, but lacks some of the headroom of the 1st ch. The 3rd ch is all the nasty you'd ever need. Very warm and sweet with my humbucker. The scoop buttons on ch 2-3 are good for metal. DRAWBACK: ch 2-3 share the same eq. I like the fact that the Presence is a master control. I've yet to play a gig that the AVT100 couldn't handle, but the overall volume ain't what you think a 100 w. Marshall would be. Under-rated. Thank goodness there is an effects loop w/ a Mix control, because the built-in EFX are the least attractive of the features. There's 11 reverbs (a few pretty good ones), a chorus, flange, delay, modulator (mild tremelo), a chorus/reverb, and chorus/delay/reverb presets with not much control over the last 2. You want Reverb with that flange? Get a seperate unit, 'cause you can't have 'em both! Although it seems I've focused on the drawbacks, in reality they are minor drawbacks and for the price this is an excellent combo.

Best Uses

Nice clean.

By Ron 1981

from Amsterdam, NL

I've owned this amp for 4 years now. I used to play rock, pop en jazz... now I only play jazz.The clean channel is very good (I prefer the clean channel of the Fender FM 212R).OD1 is ok.OD2 sucks when gain is past 3.It's not loud, but when you hook it up with a 4 x 12 it gets a lot louder. A LOT!

Marshall AVT 100

By WyldeFan1415

from Oklahoma

I have used this amp on many occasions and I think that I'm going to buy it! This amp has a great pure tone powered by 100 watts of pure raw power! This amp resoponds very well to any kind of pickup. This amp is definately a great one!

Very Cool Amp

By Fender Bender-R3b0G

from ANOKA, MN

I've owned this amp for about 6 months now and I'm still glad I purchased it. It's a great step up from a solid state amp, but don't expect it to sound exactly like a JCM 2000. It has a very full well rounded sound, worlds apart from any solid state amp, and the louder you crank it, the better it gets. The DFX isn't all that great, but it has three channels, master volume, and a presence control, and does kick out a real Marshall tone with out that artificial solid state sound. This is a versatile, very nice, quality built (in the UK) amp, that will take a long time for anybody to outgrow.

Good Combo Amp

By SoCalDave

from Inland Empire California

This amp (AVT-100) is a good all-around combo amp. It has three channels, 1 clean and 2 overdrive that allow you to dial in your sound with that "Marshall" vibe. It also has all of the features most other amps come with like master volume, effects loop and headphone output. Some things to consider: 1. Built-in digital effects are the "pick and crank" style, no variability. 2. The Tolex covering is a bit thin and doesn't travel too well without nicks and tears. 3. There is no extension speaker output, you get 1 jack. You can plug in another speaker if you want to unplug the speaker in the amp itself. 4. The 100 watts are underpowered, my Crate 50 watt tube amp blows this one away volume wise. 5. The line out cab simulator is excellent thru a live PA so a mic (and feedback) is not necessary.All-in-all if you want the Marshall sound in an easily portable and flexible amp with 3 channels, tube preamps and built-in digital effects then this is a good value. It works for my situation and I have found nothing else that I like (especially soundwise) that comes close.

Good, but far from great

By Mikey-Ou7N7

from Melbourne, Australia

Firstly, as many have said, this amp does not have as much volume as a 100 watt amp should have. Having said that, tis not a bad amp at all. Clean channel is pretty good, the best imitation of proper tube break up I've heard yet. Overdrives are essentially just distortions; one using the single ECC83 tube, the other purely solid-state. Both quite usable, but nothing to get too excited about. The effects are pretty good; I like the selection of reverbs especially ... also, using a very short delay is great for old-school rockabilly stuff, while using the reverb/delay/chorus setting is perfect for those clean, jangly U2 riffs.Overall a good amp, but not great ... am replacing soon with a proper tube combo.

Excellent Amp

By Guitarist-5NhtX

from Georgia

I got this amp for my 16th birthday. It has great feature and the valve pre-amp really gets an amazing tone out of your guitar. The only drawback is the distortion is very good, but lacks a ton of versatility. I still have to use pedels to get the EXACT sound I want, the amp does come close though.

Best Amp I've Owned

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This was my first "real" guitar map that I bought, and it too me a year to get all the settings to my preference, but when I found those settings, and plugged it into a MG412 Cabinet, that was the BEST sound, I have ever heard come from a marshall. Thick, Clean, Clear, Crunch, and it had Balls! I've also owned a DSL100 along with a TSL60 and currently a JTM45, and I've found that the AVT100, was the best out of all of those, JTM45 is pretty damn close though. But the AVT100 is the BEST Marshall Amp, for the price.

Amazing full tube sound.

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I defy you to tell the difference between this hybrid amps tube pre-amp and solid state power amp and a full tube amp.

Perfect

By Metallicaman

from Long Island, NY

I've owned many amps and have never gotten the perfect sound I've been looking for. I bought this amp and ran my Line 6 POD through it, and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect sound. This is an all around excelent amp. It cranks and sounds great at high volumes. I'd definitely recommend it for practice and gigs.
