Would you go for a Marshall MG because it has marshall on it, or a similar priced VOX because it had VOX on it?

Just interested tbh, market research really .

Peace

Honestly, I would think everyone would pick marshall, including me.

Who wouldn't? When you're a noob, you don't much about these types of stuff. So yeah, If i were a noob, probably the MG. *cringes*

I went for a VOX. I have a pathfinder 10 because a friend recommended it to me. And it's a good amp.

I used to want an MG cos they're cheap marshalls, but I tried them and they sucked.

If I was a noob, I wouldn't know, and thus I'd ask it to other UG'ers who weren't noobs.

I've always thought that Vox's looked really cool so I would have gotten one of those.

I did exactly that.
Bought an MG for the name on the speaker.
Almost got my laney though. Just another £60. =)

Only half the people here have answered the question correctly. From what i can see the questio is when you knew nothing about amps did you think all Marshalls were the best? and tbh had you even heard of Vox? And i'm' talking a real noob like playing a guitar for about a month.

Vox because almost any vox will pwn a low end marshall.

probably the vox, when i was first starting out in the mid-90s i looked at one of marshalls low end SS amps, and i played through it and it sucked. I ended up getting some small tube amp from a pawn shop (keep in mind i didnt know anything about tubes and all that crap at the time, just that the amp sounded a lot better) thats actually the best way to go really, you can get some really cool shit for dirt cheap at pawn shops.
