Does anyone own one of these? How would you rate it in terms of tone (clean, distortion).
#3
Really, REALLY shit in terms of everything, including price.
*asks routine questions*

How much do you have?
What genre(s) do you play?
What are you going to be using the amp for?

Imagine a really ****ty practice amp. Now imagine the ****ty practice amp, but really loud.

I do believe you just used Blink 182 and hard rock in the same sentence. It would seem you're rather confused.
I have a quote in my signature! And it makes fun of blink-182! I'm cool now!

ive actually played the MG100 halfstack, and with a very good distortion pedal, you can get it to sound pretty decent. the amps distortion channel itself is just HORRIBLE, but i love the cleans. if you do go thru with it, make sure to get a very very good distortion pedal.

I wouldn't go for the MG250DFX if you're going to get an MG the 100DFX is much better sounding and cheaper. It's not the greatest sounding amp but not as bad as people say - pretty much any solid state won't sound as good as a tube amp. Before getting an MG cheak out Randall amps they have a amp in the same price range that may be a better buy.
#15
IT'S A TR...

Never mind, I overuse that.

Don't get a marshall at that price range (assuming that you had the budget for an MG250), get a Traynor YCV50 or something.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

wtf

you have 500 and you're looking at a NONTUBE AMP!

A Peavey Classic 30 would be better suited to what you are playing.
#20
The vox "30" you have ATM is probably the VT series. I'd get a tube amp if you have the budget.
