What do you think of the Marshall MG250DFX?
I dnt know a whole lot about amps given my accoustic past, but Its a pretty fair price and I'd like to see what its like... if its no good, what other amp would you recomend?

It's horrendously overpriced and sounds like crap.

What's your price range and what type of music do you play?

It sucks. What is your budget?

MGs aren't that good, especially with the amount you're paying for them. They have alright distortion but the cleans are very weak. At fist I heard everyone else on UG saying how bad they were but I was very skeptical, until I actually tried one out myself, and needless to say it was lame.

If you want a good amp around that price, you can get an AD50VT, also dual channel with lots of different amp models and effects, or the Roland Cube 60 is also pretty loud with a whole buncha features.

If you are willing to get a mini-stack, people say the Blackheart little giant is great, or the bigger brother of it, the handsome devil. I ahve yet to try either but I'm dying to try the little giant as I hear abosolutely great things about it.

budget- Below $900
Though it would probably be best for my wallet to keep it around the same price as the marshall...
music- metal/hard rock/alternative

You dodged a massive bullet!



I'd say get a used Carvin V3 2x12.

They're just average amps..
they basically suck since you pay over twice the amount it's worth for the name "Marshall" on it when the original amp wasn't even made by Marshall.

Boy, I'll say!

$900! you can find sooooo many better amps for that money than an MG. Maybe even a used marshall and cab.

new guys, Please use the Search bar first to check around and get a feel before dropping a bomb thread like this one. PS - i'm still new too.

Good luck. you found the right Forum. peace out!

They're only worth it if you need a stupid amount of headroom to run a multi effects live and you can find one used for pennies on the dollar of the original price. Other than that, you're better off with something else, like a used Marshall JCM800/900, B-52 At series, Mesa Express combo, used Peavey JSX, etc.

Wrong.


The are not average amps, they are far far far worse.

But you are right about everything else, you pay for the name, not the quality.
Please, please don't buy one TS!
