Ok, I was just wondering; why does the Marshall MG series get so much crap? I've been doing some research, and this is a pretty sick amp to be a SS. I have the MG250DFX and with my POD XT Live it sounds almost exactlly like a tube amp. So why the crap? I feel like I have to sell this and go out and buy a tube amp just to get some respect.
RESPECT THE MG!

Because they're made cheap, aren't reliable and sound horrible. I haven't even heard it with your POD and I can tell you now that it dosn't sound like a tube amp, esspecially a higher end tube amp. Nobodys making you sell anything, but I'm sure you'll have it up for grabs once you sit down for a while and fiddle with a nice amp.

Lol, Have you even played the amp? Just wondering.
And I just wanna see the thoughts on the MG250.
If you have never played the amp, your oppinion doesn't matter.
THANK YOU

Used a Marshall MG30DFX for a few months, thinking I had awesome tone. Then I plugged into a tube amp and wept bitterly.

Not trying to disrespect you personally but you're missing out on a world of beautiful music by limiting yourself with the MG.

i've played the amp. it was nothing special AT ALL. it doesn't deserve to have a Marshall badge on it, maybe they should replace that logo with 'Lyon' or something, then reduce the retail price by 25-40%. THEN no one would care much about its existence.

the tone is sterile....with FX it sounds decent and sometimes even nice...but never 'great'. IMO of course

i've played some, and i wasnt really a fan, however it wasnt the 250. for starter amps, they are great. however, they are not the best in the tone department, as i have found there sound dry, and you are left lacklustered after a while (or at least i was). they do take pedals decently, though. the craftsmanship for them is quite sub-par (bad machine solders, shoddy building materials, but what else do you expect from a cheaply mass-produced product?)

but, for the beginning guitarist, they are great.

Yeah I'm actually going to Guitar Center tomorrow to check out some tube amps. Any suggestions for a tube amp under... $800? Preferable a combo, don't want to carry around the heavy stack gear.
