Never get an MG.
EVER.

Get a tube combo VK 112 or 212 is great for the budget. And dont worry about the wattage.

MG's are truly the most hideous things on the face of the planet, beaten only by Amy Winehouse and morning breath. Play one and your ears will bleed, just to shut themselves off from the hideous tone, which sounds somewhat like a chainsaw being revved in a giant coke can. Use the money to get a small tube combo.

blah blah blah exaggeration. the point has already been made.

Exaggeration?

No, its the truth mate. MG's are a huge heap of ****, and for the money you can get some good amps, especially for the price of the half stack.

For the price of a MG100 half stack, you could probably get a Peavey ValveKing, or maybe try and grab something cheaper such as an Epi valve Junior, or a Blackheart. From my experience, MG's are decent practice amps, but at loud volumes, they suck balls. The tone isn't great either, but like I say, it is good enough just to practice with.

No, spiders are slightly better than MG's, IMO.
Spiders are a bit more versatile.

Yes, they're a rip off, and yes, they're horrible crap. Even a Spider would sound better, and they're horribly digital, but at least sound somewhat like a guitar amp instead of a box of buzzy noises.

Nah its really not, yes MGs are bad amps, but no they are not the worst amps on the planet.

Buying a 15 watt mg isnt the end of the world, theyre fine practice amps for players who are just getting started or who arent very serious, for £50 nobodies expecting mircales to begin with, considering my peice of **** yamaha (Whcih sounds far worse than my MG did), with only a treble knob, bass and volume as well as a distortion switch cost about £40, they arent that bad of a deal, they arent cancer, with the lower wattage models you arent going to do much better on a tight budget.

Just when the TS for example is after the £340 half stack theres an issue, because there ARE much better amps in the price range.

Yes, I agree, they're fine for beginners, but it dosen't stop them from sounding terrible, especially when the higher priced ones cost the same as some great little tube combos. If I remember correctly, the MG halfstack costs around £350. For the same price, he could an Ashdown FA, a Peavey Valveking, Epi Valve Standard, or even a Bugera head, if he absolutely has to get a head. Even if he dosen't want to go tube, he can still easily get a Roland Cube or Vox Valvetronix.
