Electric - you plug it into a power outlet in the wall and the music comes from little speakers in the guitar.

you can't run a cab by itself.let alone the Marshall MG cab, which only works with the Marshall MG head with Crushing distortion!

Anything MG = crap. And you don't need to post the exact specs of everything either.

well its better than what i have now

1. Cabs do not run by themselves.
2. The Marshall MG is not a good amp for anything more than practice, and even as a practice amp it's extremely overpriced.
3. Look at tube combo for your next amp.

I don't think you should get an MG... From what i've seen in this forums, MG's are CRAP.
Look for a better amp instead. And also, if you're not gigging, i don't think you need to buy a cab and a head, if you need volume, get a 50W tube combo amp or something like that, look in the which amp sticky, i think it can help you with that.

This thread has become "spectacular."

[Edit]

In fact, can we have this stickied?
#24
Ok TS let's start from the beginning.
What style(s) do you play?
Do you gig?
Are you in a band that requires you to be heard over a drummer?

Well unfortunately I'm no expert on high-gain amps.. if you're lucky somebody will come and save the thread.
Now you said your budget was low.. how low are we talking here?

Okay, but actually, with a 30 or 50W tube amp you can be pretty much heard on a band practice. How low is your budget?

Well, i think you should spend less money on a guitar, than an amp. 90% of your tone comes from the amp you're using, not the guitar.

Like that rule said

"Thou shall not play an expensive guitar through a cheap amp."

(AAMEEEN)

Get a cheaper guitar, it's not that much of a sacrifice.

Wow, with that budget you can get some nice equipment. Whatever you do, spend more on your amp.

well i think i need an amp tech talk cause i think im missing a few points on the cab/amp
thing

whats the difference

sry i know **** on guitars not amps
#35
ok i get it now

i see the light
see
the amp i have its like the speaker is built into the amp.
or something like that

so id have to buy a stack
and not just a cab?
#36
^
Yeah, but don't buy that stack, becuase it sucks.

Buy a nice combo. It will be cheaper and sound better.
#37
Get a blues junior and a tonebone distortion pedal. It would rock then, you could get that iceman if you really want it but you could find a better guitar for the same price.
#38
ts, what you have is a ss combo, look for a nice tube combo, as you have no need for a half stack
