does anybody know anything on this amp. i read up on it and it seems alright for a half stack and i can get it for $1099 brand new. would it be a good idea to go for it.. is it a decent amp. I tryed it out briefly and i liked it. just wondering what anyone else thinks on it.

Its not very good IMO...for that price you can get real tubes too, so why go for a hybrid.
I'm not very active here on UG currently.
I'm a retired Supermod off to the greener pastures of the real world.

When it comes down to it, that's all that matters. I've never heard any of the newer marshalls, but from what i understand, the mg that people on UG always speak of is used quite a lot by professional musicians. It appears that the amp isn't all that bad if it's used properly, but that applies to all amps so we'll just leave that as it is.

For the price however, i would suggest you look into some other things. I'm assuming you like punk rock music, so maybe something along the lines of a jcm 900? A peavey 5150 or 6505 would fit you pretty well too, imo, and it's all tube.

It is? I only thought it was used mostly be people who are too wowed by the name "Marshall" to realize that they bought a sterile sounding, crappily built amp .

Anyway, the AVT is an *ok* amp - but it's horribly overpriced for how good it is.

What type of music do you play?

What guitar do you have?

^I'd let a pro look at it. Once you get into the technicalities of screws...well, it's just a place you don't want to be, friend.

Yes, it is. It's quite surprising, actually. I haven't heard the amp myself, so i can't say what it sounds like. But it gets a lot of bad press around here, so i would assume that it sounds like cow udder. As such, i'm afraid to try the amp, not to mention i don't have the time to. I'll take your word for it, but otherwise, you might want to cut down on the sarcasm. Just a little rude to the tone.

Someone who finally know's what they're talking about..

I have an MG. It may not be the greatest amp ever built, but it works for me. I like it.


If you like the AVT, then by all means go and buy it. It's all personal preference, not what anyone else thinks.


If it were up to UG, everyone would have a Roland Cube or a Vox.

^ I agree, which is why i hang around HC a bit more. Some of the people on this site are hell bent on advertising roland cubes and voxes....its like a god damn ad campaign.
