Edit: like to the petiton: https://www.marshallforum.com/threa...he-vavlestate-8100-amp-reissued.119164/page-2 Hello everyone, There are currently some people getting a petition together, and making calls among other things to get the Marshall Valvestate 8100 head reissued. It isn't fully in the works yet (the petition) as many people are being contacted to help in the efforts including family members and former band members, but let me explain why this amp is so rare and why many people want it to be in production again. So I don't know if many here are familiar with the band Death, but singer/guitarist Chuck Schuldiner used this amp on the last three Death albums before he passed away on December 13th 2001. It was used on, Individual Thought Patterns (1993), Symbolic (1995), The Sound of Perseverance (1998), as well as the Control Denied album The Fragile Art of Existence (1999). This amp has become very rare, and the condition of the old heads isn't always the best. I have personally contacted Marshall and was told that a reissue would be in "low demand" so interest is needed before Marshall would consider making a reissue, which they said could be a possibility. The amp is such high demand in the United States that there is only one for sale currently, and the price is often much higher than the original retail price. It's an item that rarely pops up for sale because it is so sought after. At the moment, I would just like to spread word of the interest and demand for this amp, along with the history of Chuck's band Death. If there is anyone that knows how important the band Death is, and their impact on metal music or just can relate to a rare item being hard to obtain, I would ask of you to spread the interest in making a reissue a possibility. You can read about the band Death and Chuck Schuldiner on wikipedia, which explain the importance of the band and how they helped popularize death metal, and went on to change into a more progressive metal band that went beyond just the genre they helped create. For those that have never heard Death before here is what they, and the amp itself sound like: Thank you for your time.
