vox AD100vt, if you buy the marshall you'll regret buying that overpriced amp soon........for a small practise amp its ok but for a loud gigging amp it just doesnt cut it

I would suggesting impaling your friend through his cerebral cortex with a railroad spike. They tell you that opinions can't be wrong. That's not true. Your friend is wrong.

The Marshall MG series consists of sterile sounding, poorly built amps. I think the term we use around here is "Bees in a box".

If you want to do any playing in front of another person, the Vox kicks the MG's ass.

The MG is a *serviceable* practice amp (IE sound comes out of it - if it doesn't break on you) - but it's overpriced to boot.

Punch your friend in the face. And then punch his mom in the face for birthing a moron.

im not sure The AC15 is in his price range but if you could go with that then DEF go with it.
the ad100vt is supposed to be great though

^You could also go for the AD60VT, it's apparently got more models than the others (except 120) I think Danno's got one.

And... they're blue!

I do indeed have an AD60, and I highly recommend it.

The best feature is the splittable effects- you can have any "pedal", any Modulation, any Delay and any Reverb you want, all independently of each other (unlike the silver series, where you're confined to preset combos, like flange + reverb)

Also it's got two or three more amp models, and probably some other stuff.

Your friend is probably one of those: OmFz!1!111! Slashzor, Page, Metallicai use Marshall!1!11, Omgz!1! MARSHALL mg, marshall=l33t hax0rs11!!1! vox is teh n00b ****

I would get a long sharp(or dull) knife and cut your friends balls off so he cannot contaminate the rest of the world with his n00bness

Vox hands down, its got a warmer tone, it has some life too it, and theres no Bees in this box

I have tried one (and always play Tonelab in a shop wich is an AD60VT in a pedal) and they are awesome!

They actully have 5 more amp models.

I'd seriously go for AD60VT or the 50 if you can't get the extra couple of quid.
The 100 is supposed to be worse quality than the 50.
And the 50 is way loud enough for a gig.

Edit: MG does not make a good gigging amp. For such a cheap amp it has a nice clean sound. Everything else sucks. And it's overpriced.
The disortion is awfull. You'd be better off making screaming sounds through a microphone than using it.
It's an okay begginer amp. But getting the 250 watt version is just silly.

^ The 250 version is actually 2x50watts. I believe it's the same as the 100-watter but with two speakers. Wonderful.

Yea, they're only good enough in his tour bus (when nobody is around to hear it). I bet after the ad shoot, he said something along the line of, "Do I have to keep using this ****, or can I toss it?"

buy both amps. Then put your friends head through the MG. Thats the most use you will get with it.
