now i know hear on ug the majority tend to hate the mg series but ive read some good things about this amp, but can it play metal and will the 15 watt be loud enough to be heard over drums(i can hear my friends spider 15 over drums).
#2
its just over priced.
id go for a roland cube instead, or one of them vox amps.

Actually, yeah, the MG can get over drums. You need to push the volume a bit (5 or 6, maybe cranked at a show) but it'll work.

For 200 quid, you could get a Peavey Vypyr 30, which would kill the MG.

Before I got my Egnater, I played a gig with a MG15 and the drummer had to use special soft sticks, because I had the amp on full volume and couldn't be heard. Vyper 30 is a good option.

ive played the vypyr 30 and didnt like it at all, too many effects that i didnt use or want.
i can afford the 30 watt but would that be loud enough for drums and quite enough to play at home though

+1 I hated the Vyper.

If you mean 30W MG don't do it. Look for stuff on eBay/2nd hand shops. You can find some bargins if you look around hard enough.

Rob Chappers' demo of the MG15FX has me wanting to buy one, or at least try one. It sounded seriously good.

The new MG's sound pretty good. Still, I'd rather go with a Vox Valvetronix or used Fender Super Champ XD.

you're right. i don't for a second believe that a ****ty band would take the stage with an MG... never in a million years would unexperienced, ill-informed, socially rebellious musicians use anything but the highest quality equipment providing the very finest in tonal purity.

man, i once saw a punk band where the "lead" guitarist only had two strings! the others were broken, still hanging from his bridge.

I like some of the music, but man, do I hate punks. ****in' dumb****s.

They're a huge improvement over the older MGs but you can do much better for the money.
