On a Marshall MG 10. I made a thread a while back regarding gear, and I got bombarded by suggestions on what to buy. Anyway, Marshall is a well-known brand, and the amp was cheap enough, so I thought it should be fine. Any owners of a Marshall MG10? Was it worth the money or not? What kind of music to you play with it?

yes, pointing it at your head will send the sound towards your head.


it's the same with guns too, before you go testing that one.

Marshall: A well-respected manufacturer of top-quality guitar amplifiers for easily the past 5 decades.

Marshall MG: In short, a sonic abortion. BUT THE OVERDRIVE IS CRUSHING SO IT'S OK!!

Don't get the MG. There are tons of better modelling amps out there in that price range. Marshall is good, but they dropped the ball with the MG series.
Gear
Highway One Tele (w/Custom Shop 51 Nocaster pickups)
Standard Tele (modded to Nashville specs)
Reverend Roundhouse

Orange Rockerverb 50 MKI
Vox AC4c1
Jet City JCA20H

And pedals!

a marshall MG 10 . . . I couldnt think of a worse amp. What are they like £50 ? I presume you have a low budget and are a fairly new guitarist ? you can pick up an orange micro crush for about the same price, even cheaper if you got for the 3/4 watt version. You will get such a nicer tone out of the orange than the marshall, sure you presume all marshalls sound awesome and for the most part they all do, but seriously stay away from the mg series

exactly ha if you can get it cheap enough and you have an EXTREMELY low budget then it might be a good decision. otherwise save up for a fender super champ xd.

I'd steer clear of the MG range. Their kinda digital sounding, and only sell because of the Marshall name, their price, and the noobs who don't know what they're getting. It's all in the marketing. You'd be better off with a plain solid state (rather than modeller), unless you get something like a cube.

My first amp was a Kustom Dart 10FX. For the price, I can recommend it. The overdrive is muddy but the clean channel is actually quite pleasant. Compare it to the MG, at least one channel is nice, and neither sounds harsh or digital like the MG does. I'd only recommend an MG if it was free (or almost).

EDIT: The only thing worse than an MG is a Spider.

Just make sure you upgrade your amp before your guitar!

Holy crap. It had so many positive reviews. o_o Staying away, then.
I didn't have much time to look around the local music store, but that amp SEEEMED good just because of the brand. I'm not sure, if they had Peavey Vypyrs, though. I'll take a closer look soon-ish.

Whoever asked, (about me being a fairly new guitarist) I've been playing for a bit more than a year now.
My budget for this is about 100 Euros. I live in an aparment, and I'm not in a band, so I wouldn't really want any huge amps that are really ferking loud.

EDIT: I got THIS(It's shite.) amp with my guitar, and I'll probably be selling it. I unsure how successful this will be, but, if I manage to, when I set my sights on an amp, count in 30 more Euros to my budget.

Eh, no. Despite my efforts, my current amp cannot be found even via Google. It's some kind of Oscar Schmidt amp. It's about 20x20 (centimetres) in size.

whew... good thing i read all the way through. I thought I smelled a troll at first.

VK's ain't bad. they get a less than great response from ppl just b/c there's arguably better amps in the same price range (and i agree with that). with a few upgrades, tubes, speakers, and IMO OT, they sound fine.

stock, they are not good for modern, aggressive styles of metal. you're more likely to get a "duderock" sound out of them, minus the sparkly cleans.
