benbeck's review - Marshall VS265R

-Transistor amplifier
-2 Channels Clean / OD, dual channel distortion, volume settings / equalizer for each channel
-chorus/reverb common, but switch on / off the effects of each channel
-2 X 65 Watts
Effects loop-MONO
Direct Output-two outputs, two speaker outputs for ADDITIONAL
Open-back of the combo, allowing to store cables and footswitch VERY handy for gigs :-)
Strong-finishing & Marshall

Always used, I wanted to replace my old 8080 (bin like everyone else, I had one) by 8280 (very nice stereo effects), but Marshall had come to market. The vs265 attracted me so there are now nearly 10 years.

At the time, not possible to achieve the budget for mesa or laney or tsl and good ... I had an undeniably attractive price ...

7 J'lui dishes because he deserves, but will not make this choice taking into account my current requirements (income / sound / experience /...)
