Marshall’s AVTX line of amplifiers is the culmination of a decade’s worth of evolution and innovation since the birth of the original Valvestate.
This Pre-Owned stereo combo has the same four channels as the AVT150X, but its 2×12″ format allows its two DFX sections to add an incredibly rich, stereo dimension to your sound. In keeping with this, both the parallel FX loop and speaker-emulated DI output are also stereo. A headphone jack and a supplied foot controller completes the line-up for this incredibly versatile combo.
The four channels are: Acoustic Simulator, Clean, Overdrive 1, and Overdrive 2.
Acoustic Simulator: As its name suggests, the Acoustic Simulator channel transforms the sound of a standard electric guitar into that of an acoustic guitar with amazing authenticity.
Referring to a Guitarist magazine review: “The Acoustic Simulator is a brilliant idea — a first for a non-digital amp — and the tonal effect is extremely convincing with single coil pickups, allowing a guitarist to switch instantly from electric to acoustic sounds without changing guitars or amps.”
For even further flexibility there are a pair of adjustable DFX sections — one for the Acoustic/Clean channels and the other for Overdrive1/Overdrive 2. Both DFX sections are on/off foot-switchable via the supplied 6-way LED foot controller.
Clean: From the cleanest clean to a natural, valve-induced, bluesy crunch and anywhere in-between. A Bright switch enhances high-end definition at low Gain settings.
Overdrive 1: Takes you from the dynamic raunch of a 1959 ‘Plexi’ to the larger-than-life crunch of a cranked JCM800. A Scoop switch reconfigures the EQ to give you that classic thrash sound of the ’80s.
Overdrive 2: From the primal angst of a hot-rodded JCM800 to extreme gain. Hit the Scoop switch to produce the brutal, bone-crushing slam of modern (‘nu’) metal.
The 16 DFX are adjusted by the following controls: DFX Mix, DFX Adjust, and DFX Select. A Parallel FX Loop, complete with Mix control, is also included for added flexibility. The supplied foot controller allows you to switch the DFX on/off. Other features include a Headphone jack and a Speaker Emulated Line Out.
