Ok. So I picked this amp up at a garage sale for 25$. It looks in pretty good condition, but I can't try it out coz I have to get a new cable. Has anyone ever owned this amp and what are your opinions on it?

I couldn't find any decent reviews so...

It's a bottom end beginner's amp. I guess for $25 as long as it works but it's probably the last amp i'd consider buying especially if you already had one.

There's a good reason they were selling it for $25.

I was using my dad's old bass amp before I got it. The distortion is kinda not as good as I wanted but it's better than nothing. Also it gives a really good bluesy sound.

Here's a pic.

The MG series isn't as bad as a lot of people in these forums make out, but it definitely isn't a good amp. It's Marshall's budget model so you can't expect much ffrom it.

It'll be enough to keep you going until you can afford an upgrade though.

there are better amps for the price though.

And there is nothing more painful on the ears than a band that has two guitarists with the same MG stack.

Not denying that, but there are also much worse amps for the money as well. They serve a purpose for beginners, but that's about it.

You definitely need something better by the time you're in a band though, surely the band you saw with two of them must have realised that? Or were they kids who may not have been able to afford something good?

They were kids in a hardcore band.

And no, there are better amps for the money.

Better beginner and intermediate amps for the money.

Yes, I agreed with you. I just pointed out that there are also worse amps for the money as well.

The kids will grow up one day, blame the parents.

Nah. 600 dollars for an MG stack.


I can't think of anything worse than the MG stack for 600, I just can't.

I guess that's true - most of the other companies who make the shitty amps stop at about a 50w combo, probably because they realise you need better amps for gigging. Marshall get away with it because they're Marshall.

I was more talking about the smaller ones when I say there's worse as well as better.
