Marshall: MG100DFX

Purchased from: The Guitar Shop (ipswich)

Sound — 10
Whether this amp is played with a guitar with 3 singlecoils or 2 humbuckers it sounds fucking amasing. If you get the settings just right you can wake up the whole fuckin town (e-mail at if you want these settings). The amp can be changed to make any kind of sound you want, ive played loads of styles of music through it and with the right settings anything played through. it can sound good

Overall Impression — 10
There is only one thing i would change about this amp, you can only use one digital effect at a time, that is it apart from that its fuckin tip top. The only other amp i would buy is the Marshall MG 100HDFX with two cabs.

Reliability & Durability — 8
The amp has never failed me! ive played gigs, ive jamed and ive recorded with it and it hasn't let me down. when i bought it it came with a 5 year warranty aswell (im not sure if it still does that).

This amp was the last released in the MG series and is a solidstate combo. It is versatile enough to play all kinds of music e.g. Blues, Rock, Punk, Metal etc it has 2 channels (clean and overdrive) within each of these channels there is another choice; for clean you can also change the sound to crunch and for overdrive there are 2 choices overdrive 1 and overdrive 2, overdrive 2 should be used for those big "fuck off" metal riffs and awesome guitar solos. There is also 4 built in digital effects (flange, chorus, delay and a mix of chorus and delay). There is also headfone jack, a line out and it comes with a footswitch.
