Your better off buying a good tube amp and Tubescreamer than that rubbish.

what kind of music do you play?

fenders generally have great cleans, good for blues and jazz

Valvekings are decent, there a jack-of-all-trades, but they do alot of tones, but none of that great...

Tube vox's are great classic rock amps, but they dont really handle high gain that well

Traynors have good cleans, and a decent overdrive


for that price... stay far away from SS amps
#7
Your just basically buying the Marshall's cosmetics not the tone. Even though now I wont get close to any type of Marshall, because I bought the Mg and hated the tone, so my mind is preset to think all of them have a crappy tone.

It's more of a novelty of having a half stack
its the same as owning a microstack or something
#11
For that price, you can get a decent valve combo, which will kill the MG in terms of tone.
MG's are usually very lifeless and aren't anything special really.

a 2x12 or 1x12 all tube combo will be louder sound better and cost you less....

If you're looking for anything beyond a practice amp for home use, then the MG is a really bad choice. For the same money as that head and cab, you can get a nice tube combo that will sound loads better.

if this guys in the UK (well anywhere really) going buy www.Gak.co.uk

Marshall MG 1/2 stack deal (cheaper so less money for a decent valve amp)
£364
http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/options.php?id=68103

OR

Laney LC-30
£345
http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/options.php?id=382

Laney VC-30
£379... Worth the extra £15?
http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/options.php?id=378

Fender Blues Junior
£325
http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/options.php?id=341

Peavey Classic 30
£395... Over "budget" like the VC-30... Worth it?

also, look on ebay, i got my Marshall JCM 900 for £250 on ebay, and its loud enough for any gig i play, i was even told to turn down at a local venue.

well there's my take on this. threadstarter, you decide whether you want a shitty SS 1/2 stack, or a nice valve combo, for around the same price.

oh wait. no. you won't look as cool. you'd better get the MG.

^ you can get the 1x12 vc 30 combo for £300 on there- just to point out. that's the 2x12 you've posted there.



but yeah, mg's are garbage. I'd rather play through a microcube. and have no volume. Because at least it sounds decent.

yea i know but i used the 2x12 (along with the classic 30) to show that you don't have to go far out of the price range to get an awesome amp - i've played both 1x12 and 2x12 and preferred the 2x12 considerably, though i really don't like the classic 30 but thought i'd recommend it anyway seeing as so many people on here seem to.

^ yeah, i liked the classic 30.

still have to try the laneys...

i'd probably get the 1x12 (assuming it's nice) on the basis that the 2x12 will be extremely heavy, and the 1x12 will be not just so bad- and I think they have speaker outs (check that out though, i'm not certain), so you could just get another cab if you needed it.

Obviously, it depends on your circumstances, and level of wussiness...

it looks like everyone says that the mg is a peice, i think i might save up for a fender supersonic, i play mostly classic rock, some metal, and a little blues. But what other marshall amp would be a good buy.

a fender supersonic is a good buy but im not sure its for you. the amps i listed are ALL really really good valve amps. go for any of them. though the blues junior and classic 30 may struggle with metal.

if you're stuck on marshall then the DSL401 is the only marshall new you want to be looking at - the MGs well to save more rants, just no. and the AVTs are bigger MGs with 1 pre-amp valve IMO. just as pointless. if you can go used, a JCM900 has a more modern voicing and 2 channels, and handles metal better at low volumes than 800s (i believe - i havent tried a 2 channel 800), or the JCM 800 if you can find one in your price range, which has a more vintage voicing, due to it being older, and the models with only one channel you arent going to get a metal type sound out of unless you have the pre-amp and master volumes dimed with a OD infront of it. so take your pick.

no problemo PF, some of us are blessed with MGs and can actually hold back on saying they're shit, but say get X instead, though that said given the opportunity i'm sure a lot of us would just at the opportunity to jump on the bandwagon and just rant about how bad they are.

The Hot Rod has great cleans but not true reverb, it has a solid state type of reverb, if your looking for great cleans, try a used Deluxe Reverb.

Hey, the voice of reason here is telling you to look at rivera's. They own the hot rods and have a marshall-esque drive and can be found used for as little as 500. Highly, highly recommended over the deville.

^ agreed. Or traynor. Or Cornell, though they might be exceedingly dear outside the UK. I'm not fussed on fenders, bar the blues junior. They're very much one trick ponies masquerading as versatile amps, 90% of the time.
