    have been told by more than one person who knows what they are talking about that 50ish watt amps tend to nail the early sound better than the 100's do.
    post the clip or give us the url for it if you can.

    sorry different edhead, anywhey, I have played an avt 150, and the only thing that impressed me was if you wanted to play at low volume, it still had a good sound.

    They sound good, but have to be cranked, or you need an attenuator of some kind.

    Im trying to find the website with the clips.they sound pretty amazing.from what i understand the avt50 sound great and the avt150 sounds horrible.I guess it mimicks the power tube saturation as you crank the amp from what i read.marshall got this valve state down..
