the line 6 spiders really aren't THAT bad. They're good practice amps. I've played through an MG before too... I couldn't really tell ya though. it's all down to personal preference- for me i'll say Line 6.

I don't really need an answer like "go with this one" or "you should go tube". I just want to know which of these two half stack are better.

If you want a straighforward answer, you have to give us as much information as possible, like what style do you play, what are you looking for in amps. Different amps are better at different things.

Just by not even looking at the links, either way, i hate both amps. I think i speak for most of UG when i say BOTH the MG's and Spiders suck at everything

both stupid... let me give you a hint ... just get double of money about 1800$ and youll geht an ibanez thermion + ibanez box wich is blowing a single rectifier away without any problems
#10
line 6 blows, but that perticular marshall isnt much better, save your money and get a quality amp dont be cheep when it comes to your sound bro.
Im gonna pistol whip the next guy that says shenanigans !!!!

why are you even asking this ? you care about your sound because you're asking which one is better, but you only give us 2 cruddy amps to choose from ! make up your mind, either want good tone or gtfo and go get a ss halfstack.
#14
you don't need a half stack. you're not selling out stadium tours, and you never will if you've got the crappy tone that you'll get from either of those amps.

get a tube combo. fin.

Yeah srsly, the only thing that sucks more is TS,
jk man,
But seriously save for a while, the noise that will come out of those might as well be distortion from a fart echoing in the toilet bowl.

personally i don't like either of those amps, you could probably get a much better one for around that price range, but if it has to be one of them amps i would go for the Marshall

haha I thought the same thing A high wattage solid state Marshall MG or Line 6 half stack is pretty much the exact opposite of what most people here would recommend anyone.

Is someone holding a gun to your head and forcing you to choose poor tone? Because that's the only way I can imagine desire for one of these from someone who is aware of tube/valve's advantages over SS junk (i know not all SS amps are bad but these ones are poor)

They're both amazing. I would get the Marshall though. Its overdrive is crushing.
