And the devil gives you a guitar. "Wow," you say, shocked at the kindness of the act. "I didn't think you would be so kind." A large grin starts to paint itself onto Satan's face and you quickly realize that maybe this PRS Custom 24 isn't going to play so great without a good amp. Behind Satan are two cardboard boxes. "Go ahead", he says. "Open them."

To your horror, you find two amps- a Marshall MG15DFX and a Line 6 Spider III 15. And you have to pick one. Which one would you choose?

Also note that this isn't a clever way of asking which one I should get (already have a somehwat nice amp), but rather a way of finding out which is more hated among the tone-o-philes that hang out hear (get my joke? lolololol).

I personally would pick the Spider, just because I unfortunately have had experience with a MG and have vowed to never play one again.

Ya well when i wrestle/play with my dog he sometimes jumps on my back and starts humping me. But should he be doing this if he is neutered?

The MG man, the distortion is CRUSHING!

Serously though; the Spider, I'd rather have a variety of bad tones than just one bad tone.

I'd rather have a 150 watt Spider, since I'm getting it for free and it's still more interesting of a toy than the 15 watt.

MG, sounds like less of a box of bees than the Spider.

he means that you sound like youre going with the flow of hating on MGs and Spiders and just saying that they both suck because people say they do.

I personally am a previous owner of an MG so i know from firsthand experience that it has a poor dirty channel. and i have spent some time playing the spider and its not as bad as the MG and its ok at first playing around with the prefixes and the effects but it does sound very artificial

Now I can see his point.


Except for the fact that I have owned both a Spider and an MG. And you know what?


They both sucked. I'm sure most people here have made the same beginner mistakes and can say, not from jumping on a "bandwagon", that they just were not that good. I mean, you can put a Marshall MG100DFX halfstack and a B-52 combo amp or Peavey Valveking next to each other and go up to a random guitarist. Most of them would be stupid enough to pick the Marshall because of brand name influence.

exactly. i recommend anybody who thinks that they'll appear smart by saying whatever the majority or at least the respectable people are saying should go try out the amps themselves! then they form their own opinion. who knows, maybe they'll like on of those amps
