well

I've read most people hate marshall MG's

and i have a 250dfx, got it used


little did i know, when i was taking it apart yesterday, the person who had it before me modded the crap out of it

new speakers, new electronics, etc.etc.

i was at my friends house who has the same model amp last week

and i was wondering why it sounded so bad,
and now i know

maybe marshall mg's do suck,
modded ones dont though


so basically, I'm sorry if i've ever gotten mad at you for raggin on MG's cuz i get it now

Well yea, take any amp, but new tubes in it, a new speaker, new caps, etc and it's bound to sound atleast decent. Now take a good amp and do that, then you will immediately sound as good as Clapton. Ha
Yeah Dimebag is not the "Greatest Guitarist" of all time... Hendrix maybe... I must go get food to eat with my mouth

$250 for an amp? wow. is it worth it to invest that much in the amp?

How can you mod it?

Buy both pickups. Rub icyhot on both of them. Sandwich your penis between them and walk to the nearest homeless shelter with your brand new icyhot penis sandwich.

So the bottom line is... the amp you were using isn't, in fact, the amp you thought it was.

Well since 'mod' just stands for modified, you could do pretty much whatever you want to it. Just like the threadstarter listed. Any thing you change or replace is a modification, aka, mod

I'de like to know what mods were done to it, have any new traced circuit after he did the mods?

You could make an amp just like it under another name, sell it online and in stores and make millions lol

But seriously, why would you mod an MG? Sounds illogical to me


Generally, you would mod an amp to make it sound "better" in one's opinion. The same applies for all amps.

Besides, every time someone looks at your amp and says, "Psh... MGs suck." Wouldn't you want to be able to blow them away with not only playing, but how good it sounds?

This is simple logic here, andd yes, I got your attempt at a joke.
