+1. Super duper amp. The overdrive delivers.

Generally, it's not a good idea to get a 100 watt solid state (JC120's and metal aside). But it's a Marshall, so it must be great. GO FOR IT.

Better than the old MGs I hear, but I bet it isn't close to worth what they are charging.

If you can tell us your budget, musical style, and location we could probably help out more than those people who gave you positive reviews on that bad amp.

Unless you're going to be playing big gigs and that, it'll probably do. Not the greatest sounding amp (Far from it) but it still has a nice Marshallish tone to it.

If you want a nice solid state, look on ebay at some Valvestate 8100 heads, great little amps.

HAHA, I love how GG&A is just caving in on itself.

On a related note:
don't ever buy that amp.

I usually play stuff like Zeppelin, Clapton, Hendrix, and any other classic rock. My budget is from 500-600 and i live in TN

you can get a way better amp for the price. You could get an old Carvin for that much. That's what I did, I got a vintage x100b and I love it so!

Sounds like you are a good candidate for a used Laney AOR 50 combo or a Laney TT20 combo or a Peavey Classic 30 with an upgraded speaker.

Let's try and be helpful, guys.


Threadstarter, be aware that though it says Marshall on it, this amp is not a worthy representative of the "Marshall tone". But people buy it and love it simply because it says Marshall, and they want to own one.

^Guitar Center doesn't really have a wide variety of amps...They won't have a Laney or a Traynor.

I would also recommend a Traynor YCV50 Blue. They can be found for 650 brand new on eBay.
Very road worthy amp, and definitely has a tone that can be considered "Marshall-y".

These would be great for classic rock too:
Laney VC15/VC30
Vox AC15/AC30

Yes, add that to the list.


Here is a good clip of what the AOR can do to sound like Van Halen.

Dont ever buy a Marshall MG. It is better than the old ones, but that doesnt prevent this amp from being a sad sack of sh*t.
