    I am guessing it is the reverb tank. I dont know if my tank is original. What is the model number on your reverb tank? Mine is 8db2c1d.

SOURCE: Marshall Valvestate 8100 Head volume

I believe that your model uses a 12AX7 tube for the pre-amp section. The tube is bad and needs to be replaced. Start there.

Just got a new Marshall DSL40C. The reverb does not work on either gain control or with the footswitch. Why?


Nothing wrong with the amp. Google it- these amps have extremely weak reverb. All of them are the same. It's the one weak point about these amps. And I love mine. I mic it when we gig. Sounds awesome both clean and driven. But you'll have to get a separate reverb pedal if you want "girl crush" or "pipeline" reverb. Don't listen to the above posters. It's the way these amps are.

When I plug my P803 2 Way footswitch into my Haze40 amp the effects light flashes and the footswitch will not change channels or effects.


The P803 is designed to work with the "Valvestate" and Tube amps. I don't think it is compatible with the Haze40 since they have an optional 4 button footswitch so the optional one would necessitate different interface than the P803.

Need reverb tank for a Marshall Amp 8280,but don't know what type


Try this website:http://tubesandmore.com/ Look under reverb tanks. Check to see how many springs your old tank has and what size it is. I think Marshall used Accutronic tanks but have a look at all of them. There are pictures and info for each. Hope this helps.

Hi my Marshal G15 is making an echoy twang when played loud (& open E chords). does this mean the reverb is broken?


I suspect the vibration when it is loud is vibrating a reverb tank within the unit.

Test this bylistening with headphones and see if you get same sound.

It may be the reverb has a resonance or the cabinet does that is sensitive to your E chords.

The shock mounting of the reverb may have failed to isolate the reverb tank from speaker vibrations... hence the headphone test.

Marshall VS65R is powered up it hums


Blown speaker NO (would not get sound at all)

Bad Reverb UNLIKELY (controls would deselect reverb and it would be out of circuit)

Bad preamp tube NO (controls have no effect)

Bad rectifier and/or filter caps LIKELY

Bad power amp POSSIBLE

Marshall 8080 valvestate amplifier


There could be a short in the rectifier diodes or in the transformer itself. Can you take some measurements inside the unit?

Let me know.

Marshall valvestate 8040 - how to change the valve?


Hi chagzuki, you are right, but only when the valves are used as outputs, You amp has transistorised outputs, and a single tube used for distortion/gain. You will get a very long life out of this tube also because its supply voltage that is is used in the valvestate preamps is really quite low. Just enough for it to work really, so the tubes life can be expected to be much longer than normal. It is also a preamp tube, not an output tube, so they rarely need changing. If you ever did want to change it(dont bother), it is located on the PCB inside the unit. You have to slide the sleeve off to get at it. Get yourself a JCM800=the best guitar amp ever built(imho), then yo got pure Marshall tone, and output tubes that need changing every 6 months or so. Now go RIFF OUT and dont worry about your valvestates' "valve"

regards
