I was wondering what you all think about which amp head should i buy to go with a marshall MG412 cabinet.

Ive heard that the MG100HDFX head that goes with it isnt very good value so i was wondering what kind of head would be good.

I play pop punk, alternative, and some metal with a Epiphone Dot with Gibson pickups.

MGs just plain suck. Dont get one. Dont know what would be good for pop punk and the likes, but ok.

The MG412 cab will make anything you buy sound like an MG.

I ran a modded soundcity head into a MG412 once, because we needed to check if the amp worked and that was the only thing around. Let me tell you, that was a pretty sacreligous thing we did.
Ibanez -> Peavey -> Eardrums

Apparently I'm on some list of people to listen to..?

Sell your cab, and get a used tube combo.

2. Sell the MG cab
3. Take a long hard look in a mirror and shout at yourself.

What would these poor guitar newbies do without us?

Probably all end up with metalzones, MG's and BC Rich guitars im guessing.

and don't forget spiders as well. I was at GC yesterday and a guy and his wife were looking at guitars, and the salesman easily convinced him to buy a Spider because he showed him the tremolo effect and stated " This is a high quality amp", I left the store immediately after hearing that.

I laughed when at my local guitar shop, A guy came in with his son looking for a starter pack and convinced him to buy a crappy strat knock off (called shine or something) when he left them to look i wandered over and convinced him to get a MIM Fender tele and he did. I was proud because i just saved a boy from years of endless "Your guitar is wank" abuse.

The very reason I hate guitar center is because theyre just looking to make the quickest sale possible. They dont look at the costumer and their situation.

I have recently thought up a theory:

As we all know, MG's are infected with AIDS. Nobody knows how, but that shit is there.

My theory is that Marshall has some of the old days left in them, back when they made good amps(Master Volume Plexi's, 2203's etc.) and they are not the money hungry greedy bastards we know today. Maybe, that little bit of old school left in Marshall hates n00bs. They want the n00bs eradicated. What is the best way, AIDS of course, and what is the best n00b bait, no, not Zakk Wylde silly, the Marshall MG. Give it a few years, and the current generation of n00bs will be gone, thanks to the sweet, slow death brought forth by a lack of immunities. My hat goes off to you Marshall, what a genoius plan.
