ok i just want some final opinions on some thigns before i confirm.

first of all. For a begnner to moderate player how is the dunlop original crybaby wah pedal? flaws? any videos of it?

nextly. Im trying to decide between either this:

http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Marshall-MG100HDFX-and-MG412A-or-MG412B-Half-Stack?sku=482709

or

http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Marshall-MG-Series-Limited-Edition-Zakk-Wylde-MG15MSZW-15w-Microstack?sku=481032

i think i'd prefer the first one more to be honest, more versatility and freedom and room for creativity.

Also, what is the difference between straight-front and angled? any differences and pro's and cons to either?

So i want to get the first amp more im thinking but the problem is the size.

Crybaby is nice, I have one. Works well for what I do (rock-metal, also good for clean funk stuff).

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, DON'T GET AN MG!!!!!!!!!!!!!

For $600 bucks, you can do SO much better.

What style do you play?
#3
From previous experience, the MG series are not worth the money. For the price of either, I recommend getting a nice little tube amp if you aren't gigging yet. I recommend an Epiphone Valve Junior or you can check out the new Crate amps that came out recently. Or you can go ahead and spend the money on stack, it's your call.
#4
One advice.

DON'T GET A MG, GET A CUBE OR A VYPYR.

I'd look into a B-52 AT-112 and a Randall RG50TC too.

WHATEVER YOU DO PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM THE MG! and for that matter lots of solid states well atleast the ones with moddeling. bad idea. try to go with a tube combo. or somthing. for 600 bucks u could get a pretty sweet tube amp. plus some nice pedals.

If you really must have tone like that get $80 more and get a Peavey Windsor Halfstack.
Crybaby=good though.

oh and the difference between angled and straight is that angled is good at practice and home cause 2 speakers point at you. but for gigging straight is better. cause it all points at the crowd
#8
generally, people here don't like MGs. i own one and i have to say, there are a lot better amps in for the price. i suggest getting a Cube or a Tech 21 Trademark.
Ibanez RG321MH (Air Classic/Tone Zone)
Fernandes Telecaster (Twang King/stock bridge pickup)
Blackstar HT-20 (Scumback 55 speaker/ Tung Sol tubes)

Stacks will be ****ty in that price range and or/ too loud for your room
Unless you're talking about a Valve Junior head/speaker cab.

The vox V847 wah will be better than the crybaby for what you are playing

You'll spend $600 for a crappy Marshall? ...I can tell you just want the Marshall name on a stack so you can show off your big amp to all your friends.

Believe me, go with a Classic 30 as mentioned above, or check out some used amps, you can find some great deals if you look.

IMO, you don't need a half stack unless you gig in front of thousands. a nice combo would be better.

here's the Tech 21. solid state but has some really great tones unlike other SS amps in its range.

Look for a Classic 30 craigslist, you can easily find one there for ~$450.

If you get an MG despite all the people who have told you not to I will personally find you and crucify you. So ya, Classic 30.
