So I've been planning to get either a Blues Junior or an HRD with some upcoming money. Let me say I'm not a huge Marshall fan simply because most of their stuff doesn't deliver the Fender cleans I require from an amp. I did find their Valvestate 8040 a couple of years ago that sounded great clean but of course I've not come across another since. Stopped in to GC today with my Strat to see what they had. There was a Frontman 212R for $179 which I knew I'd like but I kept looking anyway. Found a Marshall AVT100 Valvestate 2000 for the same price. Got plugged in and yessiree it did the trick. Nice cleans and not one but two very nice gain channels as well as some digital effects. It also had the 4 button foot switch which are usually long gone on used amps. It's on police hold until Wed so I just cancelled the MIM Strat I had on layaway and put that money on the amp. Just like this one. The only downside I see is it weighs 53 lbs. Fortunately I don't move my amps around much.
