They're Marshalls worst line of amps. Sound horrible at high volumes. Not worth the money.

My guess is it either sounds too digital or you can get a better amp with the money (or both).

Search bar didn't come up with anything?

if you turn the volume up (just enough to play at a small gig) you get a bad feedback whistle at 3x the volume

well i found it for £155 plus even if it's for beginners anythings better than wat i got now. a 10 w "B B Blaster" from a starter pack that my first guitar came with ( don't worry i realised i shoudn't have got it now but i've learned but i been playin for like 2 years now so i really need a new amp)
#13
they don't give you a very good classic rock overdrive, Which kind of defeats the purpose of buying a marshall.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

they sound like the crappy starter amps when you put them past 5....

IMO anyway...and everyone on here seems to think they are ****e too, not worth the £200 for the 100 watt version.

I'd get a roland cube 30 or 60, they sound kick ass.

ok i'll look around but are there any other suggestions u can offer for the same money cos my dad won't want to spend more than lik £180 but i don't want anything 10 watts lol or anything like 100
#20
They sound fizzy and buzzy, like bees in a box covered with shook up soda pop. If that be what you want in an amp, then get it. I wouldn't, but whatever.

Actually no, its not going to be a lot better than the B B Blaster. It just says Marshall on it so it looks like it will sound better.

i take it you're just going for a practice amp, so i'd recommend getting something like one of these 5w tube combos instead of an MG:

they don't LOOK anywhere near as impressive i know, but will sound infinitely better.

If you're scared of tube amps however, i'd say check out the Roland Cube or Vox Valvetronix (its not a tube amp, it just makes you think it is!). They are also MUCH MUCH better than the MG, for about the same price.

Fender Jazzmaster/Yamaha SG1000
Boss TU-3, DS-2, CS-3, EHX small stone, Danelectro delay
Laney VC30-112 with G12H30 speaker, or Session Rockette 30 for smaller gigs
Elixir Nanoweb 11-49 strings, Dunlop Jazz III XL picks
Shure SM57 mic in front of the amp
#22
well, valve amps sound louder than solid state, You might find a 10w valve amp'll do ye...
#23
well i did some research and the Roland Cube 60 looks awsome and it's cheaper than the mini stack. so u think i should get it?

What genres do you play?

I have it and it's bloody good, but to be honest I don't think you'd need the full 60 watts as that's very loud for just practicing at home.

I'd say get the 30 watt version.
#27
well i'm gonna be performing at school as well in sixth form so i'll probally get the 60 plus i don't allways need it loud but i might then keep it longer because i could use it for performances at school
#28
Epiphone Valve Standard. Should be in your range.
#29
Got an MG, it sucks unless you get some good pedals...the clean channel is actually pretty good, but I play metal and the distortion is very weak...I bought a Metal Muff pedal and the thing is brutal now...had i played metal when i bought the amp, i wouldn't have bought it.

How does the MG hold up compared to your spider?

People say not to get them because beginners might be injured by the CRUSHING overdrive.....

yeah, roland cube 60 as mentioned above, or if you don't play too much modern stuff, maybe a vox ad50vt.

I remember a while ago when I was at guitar center, probably my 2nd or 3rd time there. I played through a Marshall MG 30 watt, and thought it sounded great. Now, after playing for a while longer, and investing in a Roland Cube 30x, I realize how bad the MG sounded. I decided to try the Marshall again a few weeks ago last time I went to Guitar Center, and it sounded like pure crap compared to my Cube.

Depending on what genre you play, I'd go for either a Roland Cube 30x/60, or a Vox Valvetronix.
#34
I've played a 50W MG at a quiet volume and the tone was dull and lifeless. Waste of money when you cna get a Vox ADVT30 for less money which sound WAY better.

people say they suck because they have an opinion...why do people say that line 6 spiders suck? because its what they think, they think it sucks so naturally they will say that it sucks. if you thought something sucked I am pretty sure you would go praising it...

If you're looking in the range of £180, go for a Peavey Bandit 112. Vey versatile, perfect for rock + metal and easliy loud enough to play a decent-sized gig. Solid-state though.
