    The core of a fabulous stage rig.

    You'll want the Marshall AVT150H Head at all your gigs. The AVT150H is the head version of the AVT150 and boasts all the same features and facilities as its combo brother. This includes the tube preamp and excellent 'Scoop' facility. On Overdrive 1 this radically scoops the mid frequencies while tightening the bass for aggressive driving rhythm sounds. On Overdrive 2 the middle is again dipped, but a cut in the upper frequencies smoothes out the sound for a more bass heavy ('Nu') Metal selection. Driving the AVT412A (angled) and AVT412B (straight), 4x12", 200 Watt, Celestion loaded cabinets, this 4 channel head brings absolute flexibility and forms the ultimate stage rig. For an even more imposing set-up, the AVT150H can drive standard 1960 4x12" cabinets. As with the AVT150 combo, the head also features a headphone jack, speaker-emulated line-out, effects loop with level control and FX mix control. Like all the AVTs, its preamp section is based on a 12AX7 and delivers great tone.

    Features

    • 4 tube-based preamp channels
    • Overdrive 1 radically scoops mids for aggressive driving rhythm sounds
    • Overdrive 2 cuts high frequencies for a more bass heavy sound
    • Drives the AVT412A (angled) and AVT412B (straight) cabs
    • Headphone jack
    • Speaker-emulated line-out

    I have been playin every kind of music from country, to rock, to metal, to jazz, and blues. This amp aint too bad. The only real downfalls are the effects and the acoustic simulator. The effects are good effects, but having to adjust them by hand is time consuming. The acoustic simulator sounds incredible as long as you plug in an electric/acoustic guitar. With a strat or les paul, its kind of ok. I use this as my main amp, and overall I'm happy with it. The clean channel is the loudest channel of this amp. Which is easily gotten by with some adjusting to gete ach channel at or about the same volume. I use it with my 1960 A&B cabs in a full stack, and it sounds great. It has the feel of a full tube amp, and the tone, and you dont have to crank it up ti 11 to get it either. In a dark room, with the way I have my amp adjusted, the clean channel is as close to an old awesome Fender as you can get. I really like this amp and its a good buy for the money. I've had mine for about 3 years and have never had to do anything but change the tube. One piece of advice,, if and when you buy this amp, change out the tube with a Groove Tube as soon as you get it home. Makes it sound a whole lot better. I traded a JCM 900 straight across for this amp because the 900 was just too much, and too loud. I got the same tone, same feel, and alot more volume control. It even sounds better the louder you crank it up just like a full tube amp. No other solid state amp will do that, trust me I know I've played through just about all of them. If youre wanting an amp that not really expensive, sounds great, and has pretty nice features, this is the one to get for a first amp or even for a main gigging amp. Trust me with a little time learning this amp, you'll be more then happy with it.

    Amazing Amp

    By Aden

    from Florida

    AVT amps are amazing for the price. I have gigged nationally with a full AVT150 stack for over a year and never once has it failed me. The tone, the quality, and the power make this an amp worht while.

    Very Versatile

    By Guitar Geezer-WHE-F

    from Virginia Beach, VA

    I have been playing and teaching guitar for over 40 years and have owned several amplifiers during this period. This amp has performed very well in quite a variety of situations. I have played rock (most kinds), jazz, blues, country, etc. through it and was quite impressed with the versatility. I have used a variety of guitars also -- Gibson SG, Fender Strat (one with Fender pickups and one with Seymour Duncan pickups), 1966 Guild Artist Award (big jazz box with external DeArmond pickup), Gibson Songwriter acoustic, and others. The amp proved to be quite remarkable in all respects when handling this wide variety of guitars and musical genres. I originally purchased the AVT150H with an AVT412A cab and wasn't quite satisfied with the tone clarity. I then exchanged the AVT412A for a 1960A Vintage cab -- WOW! Like some of the other reviewers, I highly recommend using this amp with a 1960 cab. Personally, I would use this amp for any gig, most any size room, any type of music, and with any guitar with full confidence that it would perform beautifully up to my fullest expectations.

    Great sound for the price.

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    I just played this amp at Guitar Center. It was a pretty good amp. You can get it to sound somewhat similar to the JCM stacks, but, of course, it doesn't have quite as good of tone. My friend has this half stack and it is sort of small for a half stack. If you can afford it, I would recommend the Dual and Triple Super Lead stacks, but if you can cant, this amp should hold you over just fine.

    By beanface420

    from warwick, RI

    in order to get a decent distorted sound u have to turn it up really loud and mess with the knobs alot, but its pretty loud so thats good but i think it could be a hell of alot better

    Marshall AVT150 head

    By Drew-rxA5q

    from Bay Shore, NY

    I find that this head can be used to fulfill the needs of any musician of any style of music. I have used my AVT150 halfstack to jam with blues bands, reggae bands, and punk bands and it has yet to fail me

    Kick a** head

    This is a loud amp. I pluged the head to a 400W Behringer cabinet and it takes over the drum set at 4 without even pushing it. The Fxs are way cool and neat to use with the pedal. It gives good flexibility with the 4 channels that it comes. I use pedals and I didn't have any issues to get my sound from it plus adding extra tricks with the new Fxs that I have now. I totally recomend it.

    Best with 1960 Cab

    This head is amazing. Best one I've played on. I would recommend this over a tube head even. I've played my fair share of tube heads (Double and Triple Super Leads, Peavy, and Randall)... this beats them. Only drawback is the cab. AVT412 just doesn't cut it. I bought the 1960 cab and it's by far the best stack out there.
