Marshall Valvestate

Marshall VS100R Valvestate?

I am checking out the Marshall VS100R
it says it is a Valvestate....
what is Valvestate? does it actually has tubes in it? or does it sound very like tube amps?

Which one would be a better one, Marshall VS100R or Vox AD50VT
i need it for small-mid size gigs

Yes, it has one tube, a 12AX7/ECC83 which is for the pre-amp portion only. The other portion is solid-state electronics, hence Valve-State. I own one, and have no complaints other than a hum when on the distortion channels.....but in my case it was a bad/soon to be bad tube. I replaced it and all was fine. As for the sound, I think it sounds great, clean and dirty. How close it comes to sounding like a true all-tube amp....close enough for me, sounds 1000 times better than any solid-state amp I've heard. I haven't heard or played on that Vox, so I can't say which is better, you should really play on both and decide that for yourself as it depends on your guitar(s) and style. But I can say that the Marshall is plenty loud for small gigs.....it's really loud.
