Everything you need to blow the walls off the joint!
4 tube preamp channels, 150 watts of power, and 2 separate 16 digital effects sections! The channels are clean, overdrive 1, overdrive 2, and an acoustic simulator channel (makes any electric sound like an acoustic). Because all 4 channels are footswitchable (switch included), this amp gives guitarists ample flexibility on stage. 2 digital effects sections enhance this flexibility. One section is dedicated to the clean and simulator channels, the other to the overdrive channels. All effects are tweakable via mix, adjust, and select knobs, and are on/off footswitchable. Cab houses 4 custom-voiced Celestion 12" speakers, handles up to 200W RMS power, and has all the roadworthiness you expect from Marshall. Like all the AVTs, its preamp section is based on a 12AX7 and delivers great tone.
Classic Marshall tonal command with great effects! Make it yours today.

I bought this amp about a week or so ago. My band has a rehearsal studio in which we practice, and the other guitarist plays through a Fender 100 Watt Half Stack (solid state). At first I was a little disappointed, the Marshall didn't seem to be getting loud enough and I started getting worried. After a couple days of playing with the levels everything came together, and what resulted was beautiful! Don't listen to people that say it sounds bad, because if you pick up any amp and try it right off the bat, it's not going to sound well unless you know exactly how to configure your amp with your guitar. It took me around 3 hours total setting it up. The Cleans are glistening, perfect. All the way up to 10 it sounds fantastic. The OD1 channel has plenty of bite, but I tend to keep the gain low around 3 on that channel because we play rock and roll and need that bluesy, jazzy overdrive every now and again. OD2 can get out of hand. It seems like it was designed for metal or hardcore, but I keep that gain down on around 3.5 and it sounds awesome for the heavy overdrive as well as heavy leads. The acoustic simulator channel is very very cool. I play a Gibson SG and it really does sounds like an acoustic, as long as I have both pick ups on at top volume and top treble. It can sound pretty twangy, but I actually am using it for one song that is supposed to sound pretty folk rockish. The effects aren't great, but they aren't bad. I can imagine that I will use the Chorus and modulation, but nothing else. In time I may come around. The effects do include I think 7 or so reverb effects which I'm also sure I will use. The bad thing about the effects is that they are not programmable, so if you want to change effects you have to go to the amp and do it manually, as well as adjust the levels and mix volume. The nice thing is that there are two FX channels, but one must be used on Acoustic Sim/Clean channels, and the other only on OD channels, which is good and bad all at once. Overall I would say that this amp is by far the best in the price range. I am stoked about this amp because I needed an amp with enough power, and now I have one. I almost forgot to mention that I have the Marshall AVT50 combo, had it for 2 or 3 years now, and that is what influenced me to upgrade. The AVT's are simply astounding.

I have bought the 150 in a package with the AVT angled cab and was initially pretty satisfied. My biggest problem with it is the only channels that have any punch to them are the cleans, and the acoustic simulator is so bottom heavy it is not worth playing through. I think the dirty channels have a great sound, but you have to turn the master volume way up to hear anything. I also just LOVED how the amp is advertised as being 150 watts, which sounds awesome to the novice. But you do have to use 2 cabs to get the full 150. I have never heard the head through a 1960 or something like that, and I am starting to think the reviewers who were positive about it use 4ohm cabs. I honestly have grown tired of the thing and bought a Fender head and have never sounded better.

This avt150H head has loads of features on it. You will have to devote hrs of tweaking to find your own tone but rest assured you will find it. The cab that comes with this package does not show the avt150H's true potential. I upgraded to the 1960A cab for a extra $100... Well worth the cost.
Great amp for the money, awesome features for an awesome price.
I purchased my AVT150HDFX with the 1960A cabinet. This upgrade is vital if you want to play out with this beats
It is a great amp. The combination of head and cab are awesome. The amp has a lot of power. It sounds so much louder than most other 150W amps I've played before. The cab can hold up to 200W so I know I can push the amp head to the max. Its fun having the different overdrives. The effects that are onboard are pretty good. I'd get some stomp boxes to go along with it, but still it is a very good amp, and its not too expensive like some other Marshall amps.
This is a great amp for playing in or out. It packs a mean punch with 150watts of pre-amp in it's solid state. it has 2 different styles of overdrive to give you the right amount of distortion you'd want. the acoustic and clean are crystal clear. it's one of the best amps i've ever used except for the JCM800.
When I first heard about the AVT150 head, I had been looking for a cheap Marshall stack that was great. I had read many, many reviews that said it was great and that it is a perfenct match with the 1960A Cab, but when I played it I thought differently. I played it first through the standard AVT412 cab, and thought it was great. I then played it through the 1960A cab, and was a bit dissapointed. The AVT412 was definately better for the head, and it's cheaper. The head has great channels, and the Acoustic Simulator is great. This half stack is great, do what I'm doing and save up for it!
This amp is perfect for anyone. It's durable, loud, and it has everything you need. If you're thinking about buying it, don't think twice.
Just played the first gig with this rig, It performence was great,the clean channel was very nice and the overdrives really romp. I play classic rock and new country and it played both very well. I am well pleased, well worth the money, if you want a great amp. Of course this is the third Marshall I own and I love them all.
While this amp is good for what it actually is I wouldn't recommend it to a lot of guitarists. It's simply not worth the money and space it takes. If you're an intermediate guitarist looking to upgrade your amp you should really be going for an smaller all-valve amp for the same money. Like I said for what it is this amp is quite good especially if you're into hard rock/metal but anything like blues/jazz/classic rock this amp doesnt have the warmth and tone of a good all-valve amp.
The effects on the AVT150h are mindblowing! Tons of different reverb types, flanger, chorus, and much more. It delivers the classic Marshall sound and with tons of power behind it, even for a half-stack. I'm glad I never doubted Marshall, they never disappoint me.
