Tell me what you think? I currently have a Marshall 250dfx solid state amp and I am not completely satisfied with the overall dirty/overdrive channels sound. I am looking for the clean heavy distortion minus all that white noise. I am just not to the point of purchasing a tube amp quite yet. Anyone have any tips on how to make my amp sound better? ie. pedals, eq, ect.. Any help would be great.

Thanks,

T

yea ill probally get sh*t for this but i have to add
everyone that plays an MG thinks there **** bcuz the OVERDRIVE channel is crap...
the clean channel is actually very very decent...can get some great sounds out of it

to solve the problem with the overdrive channel...buy a overdrive/distortion pedal and use the clean channel on the amp and set the pedal settings to how you want

you would be suprised what sound the amp produces

but yea....i own an mg and i agree the overdrive channel isnt good but the clean channel is decent and with a pedal and the right settings you can get a good sound

i have an MG and it's good.
not very good the overdrive, but you shouldnt talk bad about it

Play around with the gain/EQ, use some other peoples settings and so on.

What sounds are you trying to achieve?
"Breathe, breathe in the air
Don't be afraid to care"

Fender Strat/Tokai LS80>few pedals>Orange Rocker 30

How to get a good tone out of an MG? you know the power button? try flicking it to the "off" position....


seriously, though, you basically need to pinpoint what's wrong with the tone. Is it too muddy? if it is, turn down the bass. Too thin? Increase the mids/contour (or decrease it, if it works like an inverse of a mid knob), maybe roll back the treble a little, and increase the bass slightly. Too noisy? Try rolling back the gain. Sounds too solid state? try rolling back the treble, and the gain but at the end of the day it is SS...

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.
