Everyone on UG hates MGs. I love mine, I've got a 10 watt and a 30 watt. I think they sound really good, and the best distortion i've ever got is off my 10 watt MG.

no they arent. in general, solid-state amps are not too great. Even the super-cheap Epiphone and Crate tube amps are better tha MGs especially. An Epi Valve Jr. stack has much better sound than an MG, and it only has a volume knob!

Take a look at these, I'm a fan of the Peavey Classic 30 or the Palomino.

hmm...

you can try a B-52 AT112, Randall RG50TC 50W, a peavey valveking (though the gain isn't that great)...there's some crate solid states for a bit over half that price that are pretty good if you don't want to spend so much money. I'm sure other people can give some more recommendations. Use the search bar, there's a thread on 'what amp to get'

anything that says solidstate keep well clear of. Valve is the way to go for a good tone. Solidstates sounds like you plugged an effects pedal into your stereo and called it you new rig.

A 30 tube watt 2x12 will blow off your skull, *and* sound INFINITELY better than an MG halfstack while doing it.

Yes, we noticed ur a n00b.


Anyway...i doubt there's many large venues where they don't have their own pa system for you to connect to (plus, i doubt someone who apparentaly knows nothing about amps would be playing large venues). So, now that that's straight, yes, you'll be fine with any of those amps for small-medium-sized venues.

Sorry for being a dick about it but there's so many kids always asking if their amps are loud enough. First of all, they're not even playing venues that big. Second, they're usually fine with a 120 watt ss or a 50-60 watt tube amp without pushing the amp.

EDIT: Also, you'd probably be better off having a medium-sized amp connected to the venue's pa system if it's a large place...that way ur amp won't start clipping for being pushed too much and will retain a good tone. If you do this u can also use it as a monitor instead of the main amplification.

Most large venues will have their own PA.

Also, for $600 I don't know if you'll be getting something capable of playing large shows without PA support. I'd look toward the 50-100 watt (tube) end of things.
