I am not pleased at all with my Marshall MG, its not a halfstack but they would have similiar quality. I am looking to replace mine, and I suggest you look elsewhere too.
#5
why do you think its alot cheaper than every other marshall
just because it has the name doesnt make it good
its ok for say a 10-15watt or even 30watt practice amp but i wouldnt go any further and id have another half stack before i got a mg practice amp

The distortion is nice, but the clean channel leaves me running for the nearest trash receptical! Also, the effects on mine are decent but I really don't buy amps for the effects. I am replacing mine with a Fender hot rod deluxe instead. It has an amazing clean channel, and my Marshall guv'nor 2 and Boss DS-1 can help out the overdrive.
#7
nice choice
the mg is good for practice amp and nothing but dont get a half stack

do you want this for gigging or practice?

its not good for gigging. if you want a mg get a combo not a half stack.

how much can you spend on a amp?

metal really, pantera, lamb of god, metallica, ect

Pantera used Randall solid state amps, so whoever suggested the Randall is your best bet.

Yeah the Peavey Transtube series would probably serve you well, but I've heard some not so good stuff about the vavleking line.
#22
i cant remember which peavey i use to use in school but it was sweet as
possibly something 6505 or 5505 or something like that
any ideas what series?

why dont you like it? just wondering because was considering getting it



dean i have the marshall mg 100 half stack.
this amp costs less bacause is solid state not tubed like most marshall amps
solid state amps are good but if you really want a nice warm tone clean and with overdrive you should find something in the jcm line. the other guitarist in my band has a jcm 2000 dual super lead its a harder to care for. the tubes need replaced about every 4-6 years but its well worth it
#28
thanks everyone for your help i could have made a big mistake by getting that amp, probally will look into peavey or randall now

max £500 can you suggest something?


You could get quite a sexy amp for that price. Look at the Laney LC30, they're cracking amps. 30 watts of valve power is all you'll ever need but if you really want a big, intimidating amp you could always add a 2x12 at a later date.

Like I said earlier, look into the Laney LC30. They are cracking amps and believe me, 30 watts in a valve amp is all you'll ever need.

I've got a mate that just picked one up for metal and such, I'll ask him and see what he says. I think so though, I mean, Paul Gilbert uses Laney's, as to like Dream Theater and Opeth...I THINK.

Shit, if you have 500GBP to work with, definitely get the Laney. So much better than the Marshall it's ridiculous. Not only is it 30 tube watts, but it's a Class A amp too.
