hey, ive got a marshall mg30dfx and the overdrive channel works on it but the is no distortion.. everything works fine but no distortion, can anyone help?

Check your overdrive levels, channel volume and guitar volumes. If it still doesn't work beyond that, I'd say it's an electrical problem.

I've had that happen with mine before. It turned out that it was an electricity problem and it cost $300 to fix. I originally bought it for $80. I ended up whacking it witha hammer in my back yard. I was going to burn it, but then i plugged it in and it started working again. I kept it. True story.

-Silvertone Kentucky Blue

You're not truly playing guitar unless you know theory.

I know you can't live without the CRUSHING overdrive channel on the MG but either:

1) Bring it back and get a new one.

2) Buy a new practice amp.

3) Keep it on the clean channel and just get a distortion pedal.

It's one of the usual problems with the MG. There's really not much you can do about it. Return it.

cant return it, someone actually gave it to me lol I see why, look i've been reading on how 2 build a footswitch to cut the effects on and off.. is there anyway i can run the chassis and my head 2 my half stack together to use the effects? i just like the chorus and delay on it
