Solidus VS8100 is an analog simulation of the iconic Marshall® Valvestate™ 8100, solid state amplifier from 1991.

Current version: v1.2 (Nov 2020)

The original head was the first incarnation of the Valvestate™ series, a solid state amplifier with a 12AX7 tube as a driver for the distorted channel tone stack, which defined the history of death metal through the 90s. It featured two channels: a Normal channel, for clean guitars, and a Boost channel for distortions.

We carefully modeled the original amplifier and added some goodies to further shape your guitar tone: a noise gate, a modern overdrive, a EQ/Booster (to make your own custom clean booster), a post-amp 5 band EQ and a Cab Loader.

Integrated cabinets provided by Dr Bonkers Sound Lab, Valhallir.at and Seacow Cabs

4 reviews for Solidus VS8100

    We have enough simulations of most popular amps. It’s nice to see someone trying to emulate old Solid State amps. Sounds pretty close. That gnarling midrange is why I love Marshall Valvestate

  2. A B (verified owner)

    This is a great sim and nice to see something different. It definitely captures the 90s marshall sound and is a lot of fun.

    Got the Symbolic tone within 5 minutes from scratch. Captures the signature Valvestate midrange growl very well. Would love to see a standalone version and MIDI controller compatibility added in a future update for live play.

  4. Timo Blues

    Very versatile, juicy sounds. Cab section is insanely good, works well also with many other amps. Nice eq with even nicer boost pedal.
