spider III or MG? neither. set your money on fire instead, you'll get better tone that way.


i know this is a troll thread but, what style do you play so i can recommend some REAL amps

god i hate these threads...even if they're NOT trolls, they should do a lil research before asking these things...now we're gonna have 20 posts about how the MG and Spiders suck for anything other than practice and even though it's true, NO ONE that's been a regular at GG&A for more than a month wants to read ANYTHING about spiders or MGs or 'why is toob better?' or ANY of that crap anymore...

cube or vypyr for heavier tones kid

has got to be a troll thread

but as someone said cube or vypyr for the heavier stuff
and vox for the not so heavy stuff

Go for the Marshall. Zakk Wylde said "The MG sounds totally slamming, the overdrive is crushing."

Why would he lie in a press statement

Not sure if you want 30 watts or 100 watts?

Here is the a demo video for the 30 watt Marshall MG30FX. The new MG4 series "FX" amps sound better than the older "DFX" ones plus they are programmable:

Here is an optional footswitch for this series to make it easier to switch between the 4 channels or recall stored sounds:

P.S. I hope the MG haters on UG are irritated yet again

Also, to satisfy the tube amp crowd there is a Peavey 60 watt Vypyr tube amp giveaway contest here on Guitar Edge's website:

http://www.guitaredge.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=316&Itemid=101

Looks like a very nice amp but at a $500 purchase price, entering a giveaway contest is the only way I'd be able to afford it. Good luck!

Get one of each and run them in stereo. That way, you'll have a back up amp too.

Hey keep off the Rage, it was alright.

I use alright loosely, but you know what I mean, it's definitely better than the spider or MG.
