For almost $500 USD, there are far better amps out there for you. Are you willing to go used? That would be pretty cheap.

239 pounds for an MG? That's outrageous. Look into a use tube combo. Now. The Laney VC30-112 is 297 new. Poke around and play some tube combos.

^^Yes, and get a Gibson faded series, it has Gibson on the headstock, it must be good. Don't even try it first, go completely by name.

5150 combo used.

I think both of those bands use them.

5150 in the UK would cost more than 239 pounds used or not.

Yeah I wouldn't recommend the MG250DFX...Sadly my parents bought one for me and although I don't make it out to be as bad as everyone says it's really not great. There's far better stuff out there for the same price. I just feel bad my parents spent all that money on the amp and I don't like it

jk, totally came in here because of the title. i guess a laney, depends on how much you're willing to spend and if you're willing to go used. that, and i don't know how much amps go for outside of the us, so...yeah. good luck? (wow this was sort of a pointless post, good job me.)

Yeh he's right.. The best price for a 5150 here in England is about £500 if you're extremely lucky.

Surprisingly high demand.. But yet, it is a kickass amp.

Marshall MG = awesome, if you like your tone to be thin, with too much treble and bee sounding distortion

you could, however, get an amp that is actually good as opposed to getting 't3h 1337 halfstack'

EDIT: you could also get one of these instead of the MG

On eBay there are a LOT of used JCMs... Most of which start at 99p with no reserve and go for about £100 - £200..

I'm not even kidding.
