Now...the owner of the amp wants it back which means I need a 2-Channel Amp...

Any Ideas within...100-150 pounds...For Indie/Rock/Punk

Although most people bash them, Marshall MG's. I've got a 50w and love it. It came with a foot pedal to switch channels and add in effects. I'm pretty sure a 30w would be in your price range. I'm also pretty sure it comes with a pedal as well. Easy switching between channels, good price, and a nice amp. Try one out if you can.

you want an amp based on weight?

^Why not? Have you tried one extensively? Do you own one? I have one and love it.

I also tried a Vox Valvetronix. The only word that comes to mind for it is "average." It does a lot of things, but nothing particularly well. Plus the whole "valvestate" is just a stupid marketing ploy.

Of course it is, but the amp sounds good.

I've owned not one, but two, and I know just how awful they are. "Valvestate" is by Marshall by the way.

you'd have to be really cruel to tell someone to buy an MG. really sadistic.

I've tried them, many times, and thought them nothing better than poor. The tone is really fizzy and there's no balls to it at all. I tweaked the EQ, fiddled with the different channels, and whatever setting I used I could only get one type of sound.

The speakers on the AD30VTs aren't supposed to be too good. Hughes & Kettner Edition Blue amps are pretty nice, but it depends if you want the range of sounds the Vox can give you.

OMFG Xenn what's wrong with you? Are you tone deaf or what? You are one of the VERY FEW (if not the only one) on this site who say MGs are good. But who knows, maybe you recommend newcomers to get a MG just to share your pain.

And don't tell me I haven't played a MG extensively, as my practice amp is a MG15DFX and one of my friends has the 100 watt MG in his house.

And what's up with the Vox Valvetronix bashing? They are 1000000 times better than any MG you will ever find. The only problem I've ever encountered in one is the speaker (Just in smaller vox's, not AD50VT and up). And you can change it if you want.

^I personally wasn't impressed with the Vox Valvetronix. I tried one and thought it was ok, but nothing more.

As for the MG's, no, I am not tone deaf. My MG doesn't have ANY of the problems MG haters claim all MG's have. It's sound is nice and clear, no muddiness or fuzz. The fan is silent as well. If you have any specific claims on the MG series, post them. I may be unaware of some problems that they have. The two main ones that get brough up constantly though are "fuzzy/muddy sound" and the fan. My MG has neither.

I recommend MGs because I love mine. I tried other amps, (Vox Valvetronix, Crate) and found them to be average (Vox) or just garbage (Crate). I prefer my MG to them. That is why I recommend them. If I hated my MG I'd take it back-not try to get people to try them out.

I haven't had any technical problem with it, but I'm definitely NOT a fan of the tone. It's just too dry-sounding for me.

In response to.. X something. MG guy.

I also found the clean tone to be really dry and sterile, it just didn't have any sparkle to it, or even life... it was just plain dull and quite harsh sounding. I'm just not a big fan of the amps in general.

They might not be as awful as most people make out, but for the price they're pretty substandard amps.

^**** you. I like my MG. I know other people with MG's and they love them as well. I don't understand how liking Marshall MG amps relates to intelligence. I like the sound. Just because you don't doesn't mean you're more intelligent.

The fact that you're judging someone because of the equipment they use and like just shows how immature you are.

MGs have done me no wrong so far, though i do not gig with them, i use MGs for practicing and garage jamming all the time.
#25
^Exactly. That's what they're made for. Practicing. Yes, they're big enough to gig with, but they shine as practice amps. Even Zakk Wylde uses them for practicing.

Thank you V12. I'm pretty sure that's the nicest thing anyone has ever said about me on UG.



Also, if anyone is confused by my stance on MG's, I'm just saying they're good solid state amps-not better than tube. If you have a tube amp, all SS amps are going to sound like **** to you. However, as far as solid states go I'd say that MG's are a good choice.

Zakk Wylde endorses everything, so what is your point? The guy's a huge sellout... On the note of the amp itself I really don't wanna sound cruel, but you are tone deaf if you would take an MG over a Valvetronix. I had to deal with an MG50 as my amp for 2 whole months. After 1 week, I switched to all acoustic for a while... they sound awful. Or maybe thats just because I was playing through a Fender Twin right before I got stuck with the MG? The valvetronix is not too good either, but it still considerabley better then an MG. And more recently my amp vs my friend's MGs, same belief in it's tone. (If you wanna know what I'm running now it's a Laney TT50)
So to conclude, It sounds like garbage, and thats where it belongs. Save your money for a bit, and get like a Marshall DSL401 or something.

PS: There are better solid states even, a flextone isn't half bad for instance.
