Marshall MG100HDFX

i played this amp at my local music store and, since i will soon start gigging, i'm thinking about this amp because it gets the great tone that i want...but since it seems i'm always wrong when it comes to gear...i wanted to know what you guys think and if there is anything better in the same price range [$600 for the head and 4x12 cab]

the marshall MG series is overpriced, tinny, and unreliable.

tube combo

exactly what i was going to say get a tube combo, they sound way better and even if you need it to be loud a 30-40 watt tubed is just as loud as your mg series check out the traynors or laneys

exactly... the tone would be about 1000x times better... as the owner of an MG myself... i can assure you of this

Yes, you can use a tube combo for gigging... lots of people do it... including professionals

Look at a 5150/6505 combo on eBay.

Used 5150 Combo FTW.


EDIT: HAHAHAHA, your the guy that hated the JCM 800s tone, and you just said the MGs tone is what you want. Oh noes. You poor kid.

Yo Dude, i used the Marshall HDFX100 And To be honest The Head is Decent... The Cab is Plain ****! lol....

i Forked out 400 for my Half Stack and have Recently Dug out another 250 for a 2nd hand Cab and it now Sounds ALOT Better...

So my Comments are.. if your Prepared to Fork out for another Cab.. then Go for it... If Not then Combo Sounds ur Best Option.

Rob.

how can you actually LIKE the mg's tone...

the 5150/6150 might be a lil more black metal for you, but i can't be sure

EDIT: also, know that NO ONE in ANY death metal band uses an MG
