I have had my marshall avt100x for almost 10 years now and i have come to love it. i would like to review this from a first hand ownership perspective. at first i thought it didnt compare to many high-mid level amps out there, but it has an overdrive that i cant get out of any other amps that ive played (bearing in mind i have only played a handful of high level amps and mostly mid level amps). I bought it for R5400 (south african money. works out to about 500usd). so for that price its amazing.

The things i love about this amp:
the overdrive sounds very analogue (as oppose to digital effects and distortion found on many mid range amps. ive played a roland cube which sounds like cartoon distortion, the marshall sounds far more real). I use an ibanez RG570 from 1991 mostly, and the avt100x is the only amp i like to play with my ibanez. It brings out good frequencies. when the overdrive gain is on full it squeals nicely for leads and solos.

Things i dont like about this amp:
The clean channel sounds slightly overdriven, even when the gain is on low. This isnt a massive problem as you can get decent clean sounds from it, with slight, ever so slight, crunch. the clean channel is also WAY louder than the two overdrive channels, so if you are using an external distortion or overdrive pedal the clean channel is the way to go. the there are also a lot of effects that come with the amp that i never use, so i feel they are a waste if you have a pedal board.

This amp is great for a mid level guitarist. As a practice amp it is amazing, but sometimes playing live it doesnt pump out as much volume as you would expect from a 100 watt amp, but this does not stop me from putting on a great show with it. even though i have criticised the amp a bit, it is still a very good amp for the money and would definitely recommend it to a guitar player looking for something cheaper than a jcm800 or similar. i wont sell this amp in a hurry.

I've had this amp for a few years now after buying it second hand, very cheap, from a friend. I'll just get to the quick of it, this amp sucks. The worst part about this amp is the "valvestate" technology or whatever it's called. Their trying to emulate a tube amp but it's just a tube driven distortion in the pre-amp. That's not how tube amps work!It really sucks if you like to use a lot of effects (like me) because it distorts everything with this cheesy distortion after all of your effects. Even in the clean channel (unless you turn the "gain" down half way on the clean channel, but then that has the undesired effect of compressing the signal).Also, the effects on this amp are really um, bad. The reverb is probably the worst, most unnatural reverb I have ever heard.

Marshall AVT100x - VERY Good amp

By Les Pauls and Boogies

from Nashville

I bought this amp as a reflex to having my boogie amps (MK1, MK2, MK3) repaired/serviced. I love it. I love the sound(s) of it. I use the clean channel the most- on gigs with my GT-8 for O/D and FX. Works out great. Its not quite as loud as my 100w Boogies- but thats ok. I play too loud anyway.I did change the speaker to a G12T-75. Much better speaker I think.I wish it had a separate speaker jack for an ext. speaker. and I wish it had a solid-wood cabinet instead of the particle board cabinet. And I would pay the extra charge for that. Ive even toyed with the idea of having one built.That might be the only thing I would change about it.

VERY VERY GOOD

By Amxpert

from Under your bed!

If you can't do it with this amp, you can't do it! Sounds very valvelike and very versatile. Sounds closest to the DSL. Much better tone and more 3D sounding for those comparing to the MG. There hasn't been any tone I couldn't get or come close to. For metal it's best with the gain on OD2 set at 6 to 8 depending on volume and pickups w/o the scoop. You'll get a nice tight chunk that way. OD1 is perfect for AC/DC tones and can get good for metal w/the scoop in only when turned up when you start getting poweramp and speaker breakup. The SS poweramp is designed to breakup when pushed like an all valve amp. Nice feature. Cleans go from a twangy country to a warm lightly saturated Hendrix tone. Effects sound good and still allow your playing to shine through.

AVT100X review

By Marshall101-BTc4I

from Brampton, Ontario

This amp is the BEST!! I would very much recommend getting this amp. If you are looking for that amp with awesome sound quality, and tone, this is what you have to get!! 16 built in effcts, OD1, OD2, and a clean channel. There are LED lights to show which channel you are on!!

nice amp

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

very good amp, three channel switching is smooth and noiseless, great marshall sound but had to switch out the stock pre amp tube with a groove tube to really get it to sing. good solid built cabinet, great value, would recommend it to anyone wanting a portable feature packed amp with the marshall name and afordable price.

Marshall AVT100X

By Wylde06

from Ohio

Ive owned this amp for a little over a year now and there really isnt anything too bad I can say about the amp. Having upgraded from a Fender Frontman 25R, I couldn'y be happier.Using a Jackson Rhoads with EMG's, I can dial in some great Metal sounds using OD2. Even with EMG in the guitar, the clean channel still sounds great with the neck pickup and the volume rolled down a bit. The cleans I get are great with the Jackson, and when I plug my Acoustic into the guitar, the clean channel is amazing. I cant say I use OD1 very often because if you ask me...that channel doesn't like EMG's very well. As for the effects go, the guys at Marshall could have left a few out. The only effects that I use are the Delay and Chorus, which both sound great for being on board effects. Never use anything other effects though so I can't comment on them. So if your thinking of upgrading your amp, at least give the AVT line of Marshall's a chance, I did and being on a tight budget, I couldn't be happier.

Great as a Starters / Practice Amp

By Guitar Freak-qzTBo

from Mexico City

I have flipped through some of the reviews on this amp and agree on most of them. We should start by saying this is NOT a tube amp (rather a tube emulator) so of course you are not going to get the crisp clean tone or the 60's crunch you find in an all tube amp, nor does it have the eternal honest sustain and feedback that tubes power tubes provide (nor the wattage), and that is where your $1,500.00 extra dollars go. I have been playing this amp in my house as a practice amp for a couple of years and for such purposes it performs very well. The ratings I gave it are under the understanding that that is all it will be: ?a practice amp?. Your guitar has to be side by side with your amp in terms of quality; if you have a $7,000 dollars Les Paul, find her a great tube partner, this amp will not be able to show all the amazing qualities of your guitar. It's a great bang for the buck: to practice, to get better, to play along with records, to jam with a friend; for all of these qualities it will hold its own greatly (don?t even bother with the effects by the way), but if you're planning to take it to the studio, on the road, or maybe do a 60's revival with Clapton, Hendrix and Zeppelin?s hits, keep saving your money and get an amp that will squeeze every dime of every guitar you own. I would personally recommend the 1962 Marshall Blues-breakers amp; you can?t go wrong with it. I recently bought one after months of researching and listening to different amps and this one gets really close to heaven. I know it's pricey but unfortunately tone and nice things cost money. Thanks for reading and of course don?t take my advice listen to it by yourself.

Best for the money

By Gorilla Fingers

from Goodyear, AZ

Its probably the best you can do without buying a no master tube amp...it can emulate surf sounds and great acustic sounds, and has enough crunch on OD1 for Zepp and Ac/Dc etc...But for my metal fix I use OD2 which drives the preamp tube to its max and gets a great harmonic distortion kin to the JCM800. The effects are useful, with at least 10 reverbs (both plate and simiulated) and combinations of delay and reverb. I didn't like the modulation or flange...they were way too weak. Also its a little under 100watts (at least sound wise) I have problems sometimes getting the cut I need for lead parts. Other than that, great amp, I'd advise it to anyone who doesn't have deep enough pockets for the upper class Marshalls.

I'm back

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I found the ultimate sound on this amp. You get a boss DS-1 and you put the volume all the way up and everything else on zero and put it in front of this on Od1 with the gain on 7 and it is heaven. However there are some things I don't like about this amp. It should have more power, it should be labeled around 75 watts. Definitely not 100. For a live situation I would mic it. Or you can use a cab with it. Alone I don't know if it enough for a large gig. Also the guys at Marshall should have put in one reverb and taken out some of the effects. A tad bit overkill. However it is still a great amp in terms of quality and sound. Great for Ozzy, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Children Of Bodom, Jimi Hendrix, Cream, Zeppelin. If you don't do huge gigs you will like it. It isn't for everyone, so try before you buy.
