these threads generally get closed.

the problem with the MGs is not so much the sound, for the price of an MG10 it's a reasonable tone, but the tone doesn't get any better as you go up to the more expensive models - they are just the same tone, only bigger and louder, and what works at bedroom volumes doesn't always work at gigging volumes, making the larger MGs completely pointless and overpriced.

That being said i have got some satisfactory tones from, believe it or not, a marshall MG100DFX combo and a boss DS-1, at gigs where i've been unfortunate enough to end up having to borrow my friend's rig He always asks me how i get such a 'nice' sound out of it, and then goes and adjusts the EQs back to the full-treble with very little bass/mids settings he uses with his strat (don't worry, i'm not bitching about his tone behind his back, he knows i hate it )
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.

I find this less annoying than people that ask what gauge strings to use

Not really.

Ultimate Guitar Forums has the most vehement anti Marshall MG groupthink of any other forum I've seen.

Just dial back the gain and the treble... use a Tubesreamer for your gain boost.... and you can get a nice tone with 'em.

I do feel that the stock MG speakers are not that good, and an upgrade to Celestion Vintage 30s makes a world of difference.

Does make the cab a LOT heavier though.

in before the lock!!!!!!!!!!!!

good is comparative. bad is comparative. Is the mg good? Well yes compared to cutting yourself.
is it bad? yes compared to 99 percent of other guitar amps.

No. Good and bad are subjective, if someone likes the tone of an amp then your opinion on what sounds good and bad is not any better -_-

MGs are good for a garage blues tone, and not much else.

What are comparative adjectives?

Comparative adjectives are used to clarify the difference between 2 objects/nouns. .

Comparative adjectives are used to compare 2 nouns.
To state that one noun has more of something then the 2nd noun.
Note: Superlative adjectives are used to compare 3 or more nouns.

Examples:

The black dog is older than the white dog.
My house is bigger than my sister's house.
The yellow hat is more expensive than the green hat.

You said:

You are saying that the mg is good compared to cutting yourself. That was the part where the opinion was stated like a fact bro. Your opinion on the MG is not the fact, there is no good or bad tone and never will be, only different opinions on tone.

edit: fixed the quote, ish..

emo players would rather cut themselves.

I'm not going to give you a lesson in tautology. Read the post.


you sir are not qualified to give me a lesson in formal logic. in real world. i teach you!

reread. still confused.

so you'd rather cut yourself?

I would rather not cut myself. It hurts.

also I cry like a girl. So I think I'd prefer angry bees to me crying like a girl.
