i'm looking at the Marshall MG30DFX

What does gain and contour mean?

Are there any other amps you'd recomend too, i can get the marshall one for £130

The Marshall MG I played was real muddy sounding.

If I was in your place, I'd either save up more money and buy a tube combo amp, or just buy a Vox, maybe a Roland Cube.

Wow, you've only been playing 5 months! I've been playin a year or two and I still use a lil practice amp. My advice is just stay with what you got for now and wait a while, at leats then your searching for good amps instead of ones thast ads say are good. Also gain is for overdrive and distortion. Contour I have never heard of. Also dude, instead of gettin a new amp right now, just save up. If your a really good guitarist your equipment won't matter. I've seen guys play a standard Squier Tele and he was so good that it sounded better than a 800$$$+ fender. So take my advice and wait a while before gettin new stuff.

milla, my amps ruined tho, because it's so unpowerful, it can't handle the volume n just sounds terrible

i wouldnt suggest an MG. look at vox or b-52 or peavey for a lower priced amp for less $. the MGs are just there so that people who want a marshall can say they have a marshall.

Maybe some sort of Fender? not really a Frontman, although I have one, and it's not a bad little amp, but maybe a little 30 watt, 50 watt fender FM or Princeton. tehy're not too bad for your level.

Is everyone agreeing that the rlands decent?
