No.


What is your price range, the MG is crap. If you cant afford much, get a Peavey Valveking, it'll pwn the hell out the MG, and it'll be way louder too. If not, Laney make excellent tube amps at that price range too.

many people are going to go nuts for the mere fact you mentioned this name. it is definately loud enough to play gigs however reliability is a big issue with the MG's but yes you can achieve rock/classic rock tones however there are many other amps better suited for this. Although possibly out of your price range the JCM 2000 Series (DSL, TSL) are very good tube amps. Check those out and those will still be very loud.

what can the peavey valve king play i need one that can play mostly n e thing

Just a note here. You dont need a tube amp to play rock. You dont have to go out of your way to find a decent tone for rock, either.
Dude, go try the MG. When your sick of it or need a new tone, move onto the next amp. You'll know what you want after a while. The MG is fine.

you have 2500 hundred dollars canadian and you are looking at an MG100?

With that kind of cash guy buy a used JCM 800 and cab. Then you'll never have to buy another amp again. JCM800 = the amp for classic rock.

No the MG isn't fine. Its a scratchy piece of trash with terrible cleans and flat thin distortion and no resell value. It also has lots of reliablity issues also.

To add more to this, the Mg isnt that bad of an amp, its just that there are much better things out there for the price, to have a better look at Marshall amps, look at this thread.

As I said before, the Valveking/Winsor are better at achieving Classic Rock tones, and can be easily used for gigging.

MG isn't as bad as everyone here says, but if you have $2500, you can get MUCH better. Look at a Marshall Jcm 800. That's my dream amp. Perfect for Classic/hard rock.

a half stack would bee about $1400 US for the 800 and $1000 US for the 900, there is a JCM 800 reissue but it shouldnt be hard to find an original on eBay the 900s arent made anymore either,but theres almost always a couple on eBay.

garret7 is pissing me off. have you seen the other thread? wondering if a toneblaster is a good amp?

lets look at for a minute: you have 2500 canadian, yet you INSIST upon SS amps. i have nothing against decent SS amps, but the ones you pick are HORRIBLE, especially when you can do much better.

In short, instead of picking these amps based on how loud they are, go buy a decent tube amp. every single classic rock song was recorded on a tube amp

hm.. at one point i owned an AVT150H



as you can see, it's fairly similar in terms of features.
i did not like this amp at all. the effects are marginal and not very versatile. the cleans were bleh (but thats coming from someone with a great clean amp) and the OD was mediocre. if this mg100dfx is anything like it, i'd seriously reconsider.

MG's aren't as bad as peopel say. I've played through numerous MG's, and they've had a decent tone, and I own a MG30DFX and it is fine. When I go to my guitar store and play through the MG100DFX it is really good. You probably could do better for your price range, but it is a powerful amp with a decent sound. Cleans could be better, but the Overdriven chanel is great with the right settings dialed in.

^Well keep in mind tone is subjective, what sounds good to you sounds crap to me or the opposite.

Threadstarter: Id still nto reccomend an MG.

At that price you can afford a valve amp, sure...the MG is ok for practice, but that's not what you're looking for, try out a load of decent valve amps and see what you think.
