L'avis de Niktal

Marshall VS102R
Préampli mixte transistor / lampe (1X ECC83)
Ampli 2x100W (2 HP Celestion)
3 canaux indépendants (clean, OD1, OD2)
1 boucle d'effets
1 footswitch (clean/OD + OD1/OD2)
Canal clair: volume/bass/mid/treble + switch Tone Shift pour booster les mediums
Switch clean/OD
Overdrive 1: gain/volume
Switch OD1/OD2
Overdrive 2: gain/volume/contour
Egalisation commune aux deux overdrives bass/mid/treble
Switch Power Dimension (simule à "faible" volume le son de l'ampli en volume élevé)
Switch Effects Loop + niveau boucle d'effets
Reverb clean
Reverb overdrive

Connectique : Input sur la face avant
Footswitch, FX In, FX Out, prise casque à l'arrière, + 2 sorties de puissance pour HP (dont une sur laquelle sont branchés les deux HP du combo).

UTILISATION

Une configuration assez classique en somme, pas compliquée, mais qui offre tout de même une bonne palette de sons. Sur le canal clean le Tone Shift permet de passer à un son plus chaud, sur le canal OD2 le contour permet d'obtenir facilement le son typique Marshall.

SONORITÉS

Cet ampli reste un Marshall, avec un son typique, mais il reste quand même très polyvalent. Le HP supplémentaire et les dimensions plus grandes (par rapport au VS100 ou VS100R) donne vraiment une profondeur supplémentaire au son : les sons clairs remplissent bien l'espace, les sons saturés prennent plus de corps. C'est particulièrement agréable pour les sons très saturés (overdrive 2)...
Personnellement je l'utilisais avec une Ibanez RG et déjà la palette de sons me convenait largement, du blues au metal en passant par le funk... Avec un Digitech GSP21 Pro en plus pour peaufiner tout ça (delay + chorus + compession + reverb), j'obtenais facilement le son que je voulais !

AVIS GLOBAL

Je l'ai utilisé pendant six ans sans qu'il ne me pose aucun problème : il assure parfaitement répètes, concerts et musique de "chambre" (merci le Power Dimension" ;) ). De plus je n'ai jamais eu à l'envoyer en réparation, ce qui est plutôt cool : le son n'a pas bougé, pas de souffle, pas de potards qui craquent...

Marshall VS102R
These amps pretty much sound like crap. They have a preamp tube and no power tubes. So the back end section which is the power section is still solid state. This means that they went a cheap way of getting you a "tube amp" and no real change in tone. Most of the feel and tone of a tube amp comes from the power section.

These amps cam in different formats with wattage and different size combos, but note of them sounded worth playing in front of people with. They have a tube voicing but the overall feel and the most important thing, well it just doesn't feel like a tube amp.

This is the 100 watt version with a single one 12 inch speaker. Same lame tone a the rest of these amps in this series, but now you have 100 watts of it blaring through a single speaker.

UTILIZATION

Features

* 100 Watt Valvestate power stage driving 1x12''
* ECC83 [12ax7] Pre-amp valve active on all 3 channels.
* 3 independent footswitchable channels, 'Clean', 'Overdrive 1' and 'Overdrive 2'.
* Clean channel with Treble, Middle and Bass controls, plus Tone Shift switch for extra tonal options.
* Overdrive 1 channel with its own Gain and Volume plus shared EQ with Overdrive 2.
* Overdrive 2 channel with its own Gain, Volume and sweeping Contour control.
* Power Dimension switch to give the effect of the greater saturation of a valve power stage of lower wattage being driven hard.
* Built-in spring Reverb with separate level controls for the Clean and Overdrive 1/2.
* Effects Loop with front panel Mix control.
* Headphone jack [which mutes the internal speaker].
* Line Out jack with Speaker Emulation for connection to external equipment.

SOUNDS

Marshall's sound their best with a Gibson guitar. Well at least that is my personally favorite sound with these amps. Whether that be a Gibson Les Paul or an SG these amps just come to life when a Gibson is played through one of them. These two instrments just have a connection that get bigeger and better when coupled together.

I also like the way a Fender Stratocster sounds through this amp. Even though it is solid state it does have a decent enough tone for practicing at home or in an office. This isn't an amp I would ever take on stage but it will do behind the scenes.

OVERALL OPINION

These amps have been fizzled out of production. So the used market is the only way to go at this point. I have seen then for around the $300 for a used one. Not a bad price for this amp but not worth the money in the long run.

I would suggest getting an all tube amp instead of this thing. There are plenty of all tube amps out there and even some Marshall's that will cost about the same as this amp is used. I would recommend Marshall JCm 2000 DSL 100 or a PEavey 5150 over this amp any day. You can go along way for about $500 if you look hard and study up on some proper gear.
