Marshall: MG100DFX

Price paid: $ 402.6

Purchased from: big rock

Sound — 8
I have used this with different guitars and it can definately hold it own tonally but lacks a certain quality. The sound of this amp is never going to set the world talking and was forced to sell it for something with a little more substance(a Marshall AVT150). This has no valves and so could never compete with valve breakup and it simply can not get the sound of volume distortion.

Overall Impression — 8
Basically it's a good starter amp for giging and practiceing but if you want some serious kit or an impressive sound spend some more cash and get a better amp (with some valves!)

Reliability & Durability — 6
This amp is solid although I did have problems with the handle as it was a bit small and weak for the size/weight of the amp. You can chuck this amp around regularly and still expect it to work.
