My First Post :P, well I have some questions about this amp. I'm going to buy it, and I'm going to play with it at band practice and small gigs. Will this amp work fine for that? I play mainly punk/grunge/indie, and I have a Epiphone Lp Std. Here is the link to the amp in Marshall oficial web: Link

Thanks for your help

Pd: And sorry for my bad english :p

Wow not again! DO NOT GET A MARSHALL MG! They suck. You are going to be pwnd by everyone since you created another thread about MGs. They will all tell you to get a Roland Cube, a Vox Valvetronix, or a small tube amp. I think the Roland Cube is the best choice though.

Do a search on Marshall MGs.

Bad tone, thin distortion, they break super easy, they are way over priced, they will get you laughed at.

Get a tube combo.
#5
Are they in the same price range? Can u give me more details about that amps? Please, It's my second amp, I don't wanna to make a mistake.

It may sound good to you, but how many amps have you tried? Have you gone to a guitar store and played through some nice tube amps?

You might be able to get a used Marshall DSL 401 for around $4-500 on ebay, and it will sound 1000 times better than that solid state MG series brick.
#15
Can't blame Marshall's marketing strategy for being ineffective; so many people want to waste their good 500 bucks on MG's...

For that money I'd definitely go for used tube combo.

Crappy gear, crappy skills. But at least I'm damn ugly.

Somebody should put a sticky thread advicing people about the opinions and facts about Marshall MG's and Line 6 Spider's. This could save all this flaming and repetitive posting.

If you're looking for a small pratice amp, an MG is fine. But not for what you want. You want something that sounds great because you'll be playing live with it.

I'll echo the others here and suggest the Vox Valvetronix AD50VT. It's a good amp and perfect for what you want.

Also, unless you're playing a huge open area without a PA system, you'll never need a halfstack. Usually a 30-50w combo amp has plenty of volume for playing live with a PA system. Just mic it and you're good to go.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

I have to agree with most, the MG series is not something that I would look at either. A friend of mine bought the half stack w/ MG100HDFX and he got rid of it almost as fast as he got it. First the sound is thin and weak as has been mentioned. The most annoying thing is the cooling fan. It hummed from start to finish, loudly. I have read this complaint before, so this wasn't an isolated case. I'm not a big fan of built-in effects, but, if that's something of interest to you, I would definitely check out a VOX as well. I think you'll like them. I have had the AD30VT for about two years with no problems and it sounds good.
#25
i got the mg100dfx and with a boss metal zone and a bit of tone eq tinkerin' i got a really good metal tone that is good and loud for rythm guitarists. it also doesnt lose its tone once you go past 50+ like a roland cube.

^ haha, fucking awesome.

Okay, I have a MG50DFX. I think it is a great amp with plenty of power. I have had one fan problem with it and thats it. I guess I am the minority though.

really? So a 30W 1x12 all tuber is good enough for live if you mic it?
