well, it started after school today. i swung by my house to grab my guitar and my BH5H for jamming (my friend has cabs at his house). While i was there, he was auditioning a new guitar player who wanted to be in his band. He was there for a while, and took a look at my blackheart and laughed. I was like WTF you laughing at fool? he was like, thats a crap amp, in reply to which i said, what do you use then? he said 'i use a marshall'

Being as how he was to damn up his own a$$ about this, i was expecting maybe a jubilee or a TSL 100 at least. He goes out to his dads car, and fetches his amp, covered over by one of those amp covers, i could see 2 cabs in the car too.

he walks back in, sets it down carefully, like it was something truely valuable. He goes to take of the cover and...

can you guess?

(Invalid img)

thats right! MG100HDFX

and the two cabs in the car were the MG slant and the MG straight.

this is a guy who runs an MG fullstack, and has the nerve to mock my blackheart.

need i say? epic fail.

at first i was thinking "don't be a douche, he's just making do with a bad amp" but then i realize he actually bought a 2nd cab. now THAT'S being a douche, buying a 2nd cab for a crap amp to make yourself look cool.

I find it funny how people with say a little giant wouldn't make fun of someone if they had an mg usually. If they like it all the power to them, we don't insult them. However, if they have a mg100dfx fullstack, they think they are better then everything that is until you plug in your five watt giant lol and blow them out of the water.

What's ironic is that most guitarists who don't know much about gear would have made fun of him for the Squier.

the squier duncan designed guitars are decent for beginners but im guessing he got it because it looked like a fender and he wanted to look like hendrix or something. and yes you win by a longshot.

the only decent marshall ive ever played in my life as a musician is a TSL 100 halfstack with celestion G12s. Wasnt absolutely epic but it had good low end.

However, ive played many many amps i liked much better from brands like blackheart, peavey, epiphone and H&K that are generally cheaper and higher quality.


but MGs dont deserve the marshall brand.

Even if you did buy a JCM 800 and shoved it in his face, I don't think he'd know the difference. Most guys like that just see "Marshall" and think they're all the same.

Good on you for defending your Blackheart though. I hate when people knock amps without knowing a thing about 'em, especially when you can pull a great tone out of a 'crap' (according to him) amp.

i wasnt making fun of the squiers btw, for beginners you can really beat them, but this guy claimed to have been playing for 'years'

:shrugs:

but anyone who trys to make a crap amp sound louder with an extra 4 speakers really is stupid.

nice I feel bad for people with crap gear, but if that person then mocks good gear and acts like his/her gear is better than yours, the game changes.

i forgot to mention, we mercied him, and let him play his head through an avatar 2x12 with V30s my friend had his dad bring back from the US for him. even with non MG speakers it sounded no better.

i let him play the blackheart also, and he claimed to be 'unimpressed'

^^ndeed. Even mocking someone with 'crap' gear is out of line tbh, you don't know their financial situation, and some guys just want to play.

that being said, nice job man. Like the new avatar too

edit: oh I know man, the mg100 w/ two matching 4x12's is freaking useless, I meant more like 15-30W spyders/mg's/ ravens/whatever else we're frowning on these days in the ug bandwagon

if he bought the fullstack as one part, it would have been nearing £600-700 over here, which is almost enough for a TSL 100 halfstack w/ 2x12.

^ yeah, definitely, you have an awful lot of better options with that kind of money. I mean, if you buy an MG15 or something, you could have done a little better (e.g. cube or valvetronix or similar), but it's not like you could have bought a soldano for the same amount of money- it's not the end of the world. When you buy an MG or AVT half- or full-stack, though... not so great, unless you can sell it on and not take too big a hit.

i'm just glad i discovered internet forums before I wasted too much money on crap. It has increased my GAS list by several orders of magnitude, but at least I'm happy with my tone now and have a rough idea of what I like and what I don't, and what I need for my tone to sound the way I want...

Yeah, i can already tell you that that guy wasn't playing for "years" lol. How did he play? I think your gear blows him out of the water. I remember i got made fun of once because my friends amp has presets and mine doesn't. Then when i called him on his amp he said something like "Shut up you just think your amp is better because it's a TUBE AMP! It's not. Your amp ****ing sucks!". He has a 150 watt spider... I have a b52 at 112 into a 4x12 cab. Needless to say that when we played together on a song mine sounded better and really was the only amp heard over his fizzy digital distortion.

Those spiders and mg's aren't bad for beginners but when it comes down to it, they are only practice amps. You don't buy a full stack to practice on. You don't buy something with the same wattage as a head to practice on like my friends spider. That crap spewing mg can blow me dude because they get completely destroyed every time they're put next to something decent, even if it is a 20th of the wattage. There ya go, my 2 cents lol.
