    This big brother to the AVT150 adds a rich stereo dimension to your sound!

    The Marshall AVT275 Combo Amp boasts the same 4 channels and 2 effects sections as the 150. Delivers 75W per side to 2 - 12" speakers, taking full advantage of the 2 effects sections to create a greater richness and depth of sound. The left and right speaker outputs can also be used to drive extension cabs. Using the headphone out with master volume down allows silent practice, and using the speaker emulated line outs with the master volume down allows silent recording. The effects loop also offers stereo returns. Like all the Marshall AVTs, the preamp section of the AVT275 combo amp is based on a 12AX7 tube and delivers great tone.

    Features
    • 4 tube preamp channels
    • 2 effects sections
    • 75W per side to 2 - 12" speakers
    • Use left and right speaker outputs to drive extension cabs
    • Speaker emulated line outs

    For a college student trying to make his way in the local music scene, it's hard to pay for school and pay for your gear. I've been saving to buy a nicer amp than the one I have (a cheapie crate, but hey, it's served me well for a long time) and it seemed that no matter how much money i had, what i wanted was just out of my price range. The other problem was in a college dorm room, you cant exactly just keep a half stack lying around. I have enough crap taking up space without a huge cab in the middle of the floor. For a slightly lower price than a halfstack and for the same power and sound quality, the AVT275 keeps you rocking without sacrificing quality for size. Marshall is a trusted name, and the AVT series is a huge advancement in the world of tube vs. solid state amps. A hybrid that gives you the reliability of a solidstate, but the beautiful, rich tones of a tube amp. Not only that, but having one more speaker than it's little brother, the AVT150, it adds amazing depth to the sound of a combo amp. With a built in effects channel for the 2 overdrive channels and the clean/acoustic sim. channels, you can have your amp settings preset for an entire set on stage. Albeit, there are some drawbacks. With only 2 12" speakers, some people do not get the big, booming sound they demand from a halfstack. However, I do not feel it has affected the sound in performances. And if I would ever decide it needs a bigger kick, it has left and right output plugs in the back to crank up the volume a bit. And with 75 watts to a channel, you can definitely expand your sound. There are definitely better amps out there. however, not all of us can afford MesaBoogie amps. =)The bottom line is, if you're looking to spend under a thousand dollars for an amp without sacrificing quality or quantity of sound, the AVT275 is the way to go.

    I bought this amp off ebay about 3 years ago and it was my first decent amp, but I consider myself an experienced musician and recording engineer, so I can tell you that this amp will try and fool you. Let me start off nice by saying that the clean is friggen beautiful when you throw on a little of it's room reverb, which is great for when I play ska, or if you throw on some of its echo you can impress everyone with the beautiful demension of it's clean tone. My fellow musicians have even stopped playing and commented on how nice the stereo dimension to the clean sounds. Only the effects are stereo tho, not the dry sound. The distortion is verrry sloppy, and I cannot for the life of me get it to record well. It has a strange gshhhhhh sound to it, and it's just ugly, not the marshall glory everyone knows and loves. I like ugly sometimes but this is sloppy ugly. There is damn near no chord detail. I play a jackson warrior with light gauge stings and seymour duncan invaders which are nice and not as dark as people say, and an ibanez iceman with heavy gauge strings. The jackson even with the invaders doesnt make enough bass under distortion (and I dont like that much bass, thats the bassist's job) but like others have said, it makes palm muting sound silly unless you turn the amp up loud and get the natural bass of the cabinet or turn the distortion all the way up, but either way it sounds super muddy and sloppy. I bought this amp for 600 and then it broke on me and cast 200 to get it fixed by certified marshall guys (I had no warranty) and then it broke AGAIN and it cost another 300. The guy at the amp repair place was like "yup. It's a valvestate. We see way too many of these in here." I told him I played as gently as I could and he told me to try beating the hell out of it, because all the ones thay get are lightly played haha. I do not recomend this amp for anyone with serious skill, because it will hide it. I haven't tried running a nice distortion pedal through it yet, but even if that works, what's the point of this expensive friggen amp if I'm not using it's distortion? Save your money and buy a half stack like the Marshall DSL. If you're thinking about buying this amp then you're probably either thinking of recording with it or playing small venues, both of with I do not recommend it for. GET A NICE HALF STACK!

    3vil otter/ motherhive syndicate

    By 3vil otter

    from madison Wi

    I am a bass player and guitar player, I purchaced this amp as a "good solid practice amp". Thats about the extent of it's usefulness. It has good tone for a solid state amp but not the tone and level of a tube amp. I do like the fact it has the mid scoop, it helps to have a good 'preshaped mid' feature however if you are going to play medium to large venues I would reccomed something else, it is good for what I use it for but that's about it, I wish I was a serious enough 6 string player to have warranted buying a soldano or mesaboogie amp but I am just a bass player and you know how our convluded minds work, right? My advice to any guitar player thinking about buying this amp. Would be to save up your money and buy a 1/2 stack, it will serve your needs alot more than this. I am sure in a year or two it will make a great boat anchor. They are heavy! caio!

    Do not buy

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    I bought this amp five years ago when it first came out because it was suppose to be the next best thing out by Marshall. Boy did they swing and miss. It's overdrive distortion settings are very mudded. The 1st one is tolerable but the 2nd overdrive channel is a mess. The effect are decent event though their are some elementary effect I think it is missing. Also I've noticed this amp just can't cut thought other amp when I'm playing a gig. Everyone has commented on how they can't hear me no matter how loud it is. I would highly recommend buying one of the many other amps in this price range. DON'T BUY

    not made for gigs

    By gibender11

    from minneapolis, mn

    Ask me a question

    I've had this amp for about 2 years now and can say everything is still working the way it should. When i first bought i was extremely impressed with the features, tone, and versatility of the amp. At the time i still hadnt really heard what a good amp had sounded like though. I didnt really realize how muddy the distortion was or the fact my leads didnt cut through the rest of the music until we played a show with another band whos guitarist had a JSX half stack which our other guitar player used. I could'nt hear myself over him even though i was louder than him. It seems to have decent tone when playing it in a music store but when playing at high volumes with other people this amp just doesnt cut it. Wait, save some extra money, and buy a mesa-boogie, marshall, or peavey tube amp. No matter what people say you just cant get a tube sound unless you're using a real tube amp.

    ValveState does NOT = TUBE Quality

    By Jay-h1a5j

    from Frederick, MD

    This amp is well-made, and has a variety of dials and features. However, if you think you're getting a Marshall Tube amp, FORGET IT. The AVT 275 will NOT give you the quality sound and tones that you may be expecting. They built the preamp section with a single 12AX7, but that doesn't cut it. Plus, the power section is all solid state, and it's just that - SOLID STATE. It SOUNDS ST, it PLAYS ST, and that's it in the nutshell. Of the four channels, the "Clean" is the only really usable one, which you can doctor up pretty well with stomp's. The "Accoustic Simulator" channel is TOTALLY useless. The two Overdrive channels are cranked-up, but they simply lack character of any useful kind. Mind you, this amp is LOUD ... and the OD channels can get pretty knarly. But, there's simply no color or personality. The sound is just Solid State distortion ... nothing more to be said here. Basically, you'll end up playing through the Clean channel all the time, with your particular slate of stomps and effects. Also, the built-in effects are only adequate, at best. To be nice, they're "subtle" ... to be realistic, they're weak and mostly ineffective, except for light background filler. So, to save $'s, my suggestion is to buy a good, simple Tube amp and enhance it with your stomp chain. Or, if you've got an extra $1,000-$3,000 sitting around, buy a Mesa Boogie. (THAT'S the real deal.) BTW .... I can see why this amp has gone on sale ... probably because nobody's buying it. Word is getting out that this Marshall line is not worth the $'s. One 12AX7 does NOT a good amp make.

    YEA MAN!!

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    I am an active musician and have been searching for that perfect amp. This Marshall is incredible! The distortion is percise and aggressive. As a metal guitarist, I need this, but still want tone. It's got it no problem. I couldn't get over it. Forget any other brand man. Marshall is the top, and this amp reinforces my point. For all those who follow in the name of rock, YEA!!

    A 150W stereo head and an amazing amp all in one!

    By Alexander-Pxe0T

    from Bakersfield

    I purchased this amp about a year ago and it has seriously been one of my best investments in my music to date. I set it on top of my marshall 1960 cab and it powers all four speakers quite nicely. When I don't feel like wheeling my cab around I just hook in the two 12s of the amp itself and I still get smashing sound. the only thing I don't care for (while the sound is amazing) is how quiet the acoustic simulator is compared to the other four channels. Buy this amp, and if you can, a nice cab to go along with it.

    Almost Perfect

    By Tonyfrancisco16

    from Portland, Or

    This is a great amp. The clean is perfect. I was amazed with the clean. Sounds just like a full tube amp. The effects are really good (reverb is the best i have ever head)Even the acustic sim is as good as its going to get for a built in feature on an amp. However the distortion channels were quite a dissapointment to me. They are crackely, and very digital sounding, I dont understand how the same amp can produce such a beautiful perfect clean tone and have such missurable distorion. I also own a AVT 50 combo amp, and the distortion on the is way better. Its deeply confusing. If you have a good distortion peddle or somthing els that grants you amazing distortion, then this is definitely the amp to get.
