Old news.

Anyways, they are a bit better than the old MGs.
Still not worth the price though. Most of the change (IMO) is just cosmetic.

they've managed to make them more obnoxious looking than they were before by plastering MG!!! on them in massive letters. It's as if Marshall actually think the name MG is making them any money whatsoever rather than the plastic part on the grill cloth

oh stop....

But really, if Marshall could somehow make an amp more horrible sounding than the MG, publicly broadcast that it is horrendous (even get ZW to say the overdrive gargles balls) but at the same time make the fact that it is a Marshall even more glaringly obvious (maybe an amp in the actual shape of the logo or something) you could guarantee that some retards would still buy it because of "OMG-ITZ-A-MARSHALL-LOLOL"-itis

It's funny how everyone's bashing them when no ones probably tried one of the new ones yet. Who knows, maybe they're decent practice amps now?

But the old ones are ****.

The MG10 is a good practise amp no matter what all you haters say. I can imagine the MG30 for those who wants a little bit more volume, but the 100 and the other loud ones are just unnecessary - they are made purely to trick people into making bad decisions, I agree with that.

Who knows, maybe the new MG series will be the best practise amps on the market (atleast the MG10 when it comes to tone/$).

However, I would never touch anything that is not tube. Your first guitar should always be a cheap acoustic, and if you feel serious about it, you put some serious cash into it too. I see no reason why you should buy some mid-end gear as an upgrade.

now's time to see how huge the bandwagon has grown

I've heard of the new ones, but I've not actually heard them. So I'm just going to shut my mouth. I advise all other people who have not tried them to do the same. Seriously, that bandwagon is useful to some extent, but this is getting out of hand now.

EDIT: I also don't see what's wrong about their looks. They look like any other modern Marshall amp to me.

I like how the majority of UG bashes the MG and Spider amps, while half of UG, if not more, use an MG or Spider. When I used to post frequently on this forum, I remember seeing a lot of people put their gear in their sig with smiley faces and frowny faces to make up for crappy gear.

There are plenty of bad amps out there. There's really no point in making threads specifically aimed at bashing a particular amp.

I agree, they could be decent. I think part of the bandwagon is caused by all the people who use MGs for metal. I saw a kid last year playing led zep covers using one and it just sounded like muddy imitation of a cranked tube marshall.

The looks, on the other hand... they have this huge MG logo with like, this splat of God knows what next to it.

the sad fact is that Marshall make more money from manufacturing one of the worst amps ever than they do from making their high quality stuff.

i've got news for all you bandwagoners who are bashing the new MG before you've even heard a demo let alone used one:

I HAVE TRIED THE SMALLER VERSIONS OF THE NEW MGS, AND THEY DIDN'T SUCK

They no longer have those brittle cleans, and the overdrive is warmer and more organic sounding too, it no longer sounds like an army of bees molesting a cat. they aren't shrill and tinny anymore, provided you set the controls right. I have to admit i quite liked it.

They aren't the best thing ever, and are still overpriced, but for a "beginner market" solid state amplifier, it's not bad at all. All i can say is, thank fuck marshall have decided to update this amp and actually make some legitimate improvements. now all that's required is for the haters to GTFO.

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.

Look,
what is wrong with you lot?

Beginners do not want expensive valve amps, they want a great sounding amp with lots of features with a great price tag!
I admit that they are not valve amps, but who ****ing cares? When you are done with it you can sell it on and buy a valve amp.

With 4 different channels, heaps of effects and a programable footswitch, wouldnt you go for it?

Do you remember your first amp? I bet that didn't sound as good as the MG's

whats the beef?

I'll probably try one, and if it's better put together than the original ones (i.e. doesn't burn on me in the shop) I might look into one as a cheap practice amp because I'd rather have a nice, simple amp which I can hook all my pedals up to for practicing than some fancy, gadget-overloaded modeling amp that I can't even get a decent tone out of. (I'm not just looking at you, Spiders, but also you, oh almighty and hallowed Peavey Vypyr).
