erm the marshall is a no and you'd be really suprised the difference a crap cable can do to your sound

Watch out for MG's they might say Marshall but that doesnt mean they are good. Some people like them though? Probably because thats all they can afford.

well if the marshall is not good how about the RP 250 effects ?

and im going for under £250 you will never believe the price of stuff in the UK loL

I hear you on the price dude, im in England to, but for £250 you could get better mate. Get a small tube amp it would kick the shit out of the 30W Marshall, solid states don't really compare with a tube amp in my oppinion. The majority of the time amps full of effects aren't really worth it becuase the effects are ussually pretty crap. But its up to you buddy it's your money!

If it has a good body, a nice long neck and 6 strings i'd hit it like Ron Jeremy on viagra.

Sorry just to add something if you want a good tube amp for the money look at the Laney LC15R will kick the shit out of the Marshall dude. http://www.guitarguitar.co.uk/amplification_detail.asp?stock=04043018102618&guitars=14
and for the extra £20 you're saving you can buy a good lead instead of a crappy one, crap leads will not help your cause buddy.

good leads are a must, and should be replaced in between 3-6months i think to make sure there always top quality.
dont go for the mg, there ok for a small practice amp if you already have a good set up because of price, likke if you have a gibson les paul and a 100watt marshall stack it is ok to buy a 15watt mg for practice cause is quieter but i wouldnt use one as my permanant amp.

as for the effects yeah they are ok, nothing special but they aint bad at all

That's a horrible rig.
Just buy a good modelling amp instead.

Wow dude dont buy the marshall. The only reason marshall are still selling amps is cause they made a good one about 20 years ago. Nuff Said.

Roland Cube 30 = £120 quid if you shop around, comes with some effects so you won't need a low-end MultiFX to tag onto it (I don't know the RP250, but I know the RP80 all too well), and with your extra £100+ you can get a really sweet single-effect pedal (say a distortion pedal) and a quality cable, or just put it in the bank towards your next guitar upgrade.

I think if you like the Marshall sound at that price maybe a Vox AD30VT/AD50VT instead of the MG, and it'll still leave you with plenty for cables etc.
