You may remember me, about 8 weeks ago I posted a thread saying that how I bought a MG15CDR and how it sounded just as good as a Vox AD series.

Now I f***ing hate it and I'm trying to sell it and buy a Valvetronix. So If anyone has a AD15 for sale, please PM me!


So my advice:

LISTEN TO PEOPLE ON UG!!! IF THEY ALL SAY SOMETHING SUCKS, IT OBVIOUSLY DOES!

So!

No MG's!
No Spiders!

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

But really... there's no cookie. And if there was, you wouldn't get one.

you live and learn, you just learnt in a really crappy way

Were you the guy who your friend posted the thread for you, and you were all defending the MG in the thread?

Well you learnt. But it could've been easier for you..

We've had an MG15 for a while, and it's been awesome value. Yes it has horrible distortion, and pretty lifeless cleans but me and my brother had fun with it. He bought it at the end of '05 for next to nothing with the last of his christmas money having just bought an old Japanese strat from a pawn shop (now that was a find).

We've played that amp till every join in it buzzes. We had to take the Marshall logo off the speaker cloth cos it started buzzing. Miles's used to run it clean with a cheap Behringer OD pedal and a EQ cleaning up the harshness of pedal. Sounded ok. When we got our mixer we practiced micing up the MG and EQing it till it sounded right, an excellent exercise for anyone who wants to do mixing, if you can make an MG sound decent you're on the way.

It was the amp that could just be left in the loungeroom for friends to come and jam on, and we didn't mind people leaving drinks on it at parties. We still haven't blown the speaker despite our best attempts. We've moved on, I use a Valve Junior through a Hartke quad, Miles got himself a Marshall JCM900 & 1960 cab, but I actually feel a certain affection for that much maligned noisy box. Miles wrote some damned good songs on it too.

For some reason I'm thinking of Brian Adams...

And yes the distortion channel is sickening, if i ever hear anyone play an MG100 at a gig, I'm thinking "Oh god it's horrible" before I even look at the stage. Same happens if I hear someone playing one in the background in a guitar shop.

OMG that's such a good idea! I'll actually have to do that or something in the future. Leave all your good gear locked away, and just leave a MG and Squier (by Fender of course ) in the living room for people to (ab)use. I wouldn't even care if it got nicked.

I'm glad I didn't get one. A little while ago I was thinking of buying one, but I took the advice of the people here. I'm sure you'll find people to buy it. Someone hearing the name "Marshall" will think it's automatically amazing (as I did too, lol ) and will want it.
#19
Well, lets just hope everyone thinking of buying a MG reads this.

On another note - i can probably get an okay tone out of a MG. Okay at best though...

haha i have a little mg10 that i got for free. worth every penny. it sounds like absolute crap, but is good as a footrest and dormroom use until i find a suitable tiny replacement amp (had to leave the fender hot rod and b52 at home).

One of my friends used to play acoustic sitting out the front of his house, and he'd just leave his guitars on the front veranda. If you turned up and he wasn't home yet, you could jam in the front garden while you waited.

it takes a while to develop your ear for tone, but after a few months of playing you can really hear the difference between an MG and a Vox... i guess its something that everyone goes through
