well the mg series are like the squiers of fender's. They have the brand name, but they are thrown together using the cheapest of materials. Cheapest speakers, cheapest electronics, the cheapest wood, the cheapest speakers. It just lets them make something that the beginning to player can buy because they dont have an ear for tone yet, and still think that they have a marshall amp, like all the big boys

It's also quite overpriced for a practice amp of that caliber, simply because of the Marshall label.

I HAVE played worse-sounding guitar amps, but they were less than half the price of an equivalent MG.

Personally, the MG as a small practice box is fine with me, but I cringe whenever I see one of those 50w MG combos, or worse even, an MG stack.

Yuck. I never really believed that they were that bad until I played one. I wasn't against the cleans actually, they sounded alright with some delay or reverb.

The distortion on it sounds like fizz, and it is terrible all the way up the dial. There are just so many better amps that you could get at the price, it makes no sense why people get them. (Other than the marshall nameplate

Because...it sounds bad!

An amp that sounds bad is thus a bad amp. Simple mate.

Use the search button, there's one of these at least once a week and this thread will probably be closed in a few minutes because of it...

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