don't listen to these idiots. take out the fan, it doesn't do anything but hinder your tone. contrary to popular belief, the MG100 is actually a great sounding amp once you tweak it. marshall had the clever idea of installing a superfluous tone sucking fan so that those in the know could have staggeringly amazing tone once they knew the secret, and taunt the ignorant losers with shit tone.

tldr: remove fan because toan.

If it's really that loud that it's a problem, get another (quieter) fan and replace it. Manufacturers don't spend the money on putting in fans if they don't think they'll need it.

But then again the fan's probably the most expensive investment that Marshall put into the MG... ^

remove the fan and replace it with a military grade explosive.

either leave it in your house and set it off, or take it somewhere else and set it off.

buy a new amp on your way home, or on your way to the shelter if you decided to set it off in your house.

you all aren't helping

decided to leave the fan inside just in case it does overheat

That said, does anyone have good MG100HFX settings?
Right now I'm running the most pleasent settings I could dial:

Clean :
5 gain
10 bass
8 mids
5 treb

Dirty:
OD1
2 gain
6 bass
7 mids
4 treb
2.5 contour
7 volume

The best setting for anything MG is into the garbage can.

this. it's got such a sweet beautiful tone when you put the amp to this. It's like you can really hear the acoustics of your guitar

well in all fairness, I have seen a couple bands that sounded good (for their style of music) using MG's.

I was playing a gig probably 5-6 yrs ago and I steped on my guitar cable, it riped the input jack out of the amp. The other band went and grabed his MG so I could get through the show. It was the worst I bet I have ever sounded at a show. That 1 time of having to make due with one I swore I'd never get or use a MG ever again.......I'd rather play acoustic

I'd cut the volume way lower and use much less treble. Boost the bass somewhat, not too much. Not sure what contour is

The best setting for an MG is the inside of a dumpster.

Seriously, you might want to change the fan for a new one that's about the same size. I used to have a pretty annoying sounding fan in my computer, turns out it was dying.

I'd leave the fan in. If you put the amp underwater it will propel you around... One of the better features of the MG, in my opinion.
