no, a marshall mg30dfx is always too expensive, even if it's for a fiver... they're actually quite rubbish (tested one out in the music shop I always go to...), it just sounded horrible...

Fender Jazzmaster
Boss DS-2
Digitech RP150 (with Line6 EX-1 Exp pedal)

They are only around £120 new so no its not great. Also, as it has been mentioned,they suck. Get a Cube 30x or a 30w Vypyr instead
A reviewer said High School Musical is "squeakier than Minnie Mouse at the point of climax" and I couldn't help but indulge my imagination.

They sound rubbish on their own, but if you have a good distortion/overdrive pedal or something like a Vox Tonelab or a Lin6 POD and need an amp loud enough for band practice, it's a good idea. 70 quid seems okay, but try haggling anyway!

Even free is too much.

no.

by the looks of it TS is a bass player who probably just wants a cheap amp for guitar that does the job, in which case the MG30 is fine, certainly better than using a bass amp. although £70 isn't a bad deal, you could try to haggling as quailman said.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

no.


I did have one y'know, and even for that I would says its a bad deal, I'm fairly sure Microcubes are cheaper and sound better.

Unless of course you need it to be louder.

They don't sound as bad as people make out, but it's not worth £70. £50 at most if it's in good condition.

+1. Decent practice amps if thats what you're looking for. Definitely get an overdrive/distortion pedal though.
