I use this amp with my trusty 'ol Epiphone Les Paul Custom. It has two humbuckers so it's nothing amazing. All I care is that it gets the job done. This amp can be noisy, especially when it's near a radiator or if you have a cell phone within 20 feet of it. No big deal. This amp can give you any sound you want really. Everything from reggae to Black metal. The clean channel sticks to its name. It stays clean, no matter what volume. The distortion is the definition of brutality. It'll have you head banging like maniac for hours on end. It did for me.
Overall Impression — 10
This amp WILL, I guarantee to anyone, satisfy the you with the sound you're looking for, whether it be Acoustic sounding country or Punk or whatever your musical preferences are. I've been playing since my 13th birthday, so it's been two years now. I own my Les Paul, a DigiTech Grunge pedal and I'm a very proud owner of a Dunlop crybaby Wah pedal. I don't regret purchasing this amplifier for an instant. If this were stolen or lost, I would most definitely buy myself another Marshall, that's the amplifier brand I'll be using my whole life for sure. I absolutely love everything about this amp, no flaws that I can hear.Like I said, if I could change this amp in any one way, I would love for it to be a tube amp. Overall, this amp is a satisfactory purchase for me, and I'm sure it will be for you, fellow readers. Rock on
Reliability & Durability — 10
THIS THING IS A BEAST. I've dropped from some pretty questionable heights, and it's survived. It's a sturdy, well-built amplifier. I would most definitely use this baby at a gig without any backup whatsoever. No way, this amp has NEVER once broken down. It's like a steel box, nothing can stop this tough guy.

My Marshall MG100DFX was made in 2002. This amp extremely versatile with basically any sound you would ever want coming from it's speakers. I play death/thrash/progressive metal. Obviously I use distortion, but in those three sub genres of metal, there are every so often clean passages in the middle of songs. With this amplifier, I can get aggressive death metal sound, and a warm clean sound. It's beautiful. It has two channels, Clean and overdrive. It does have channel switching either with a button on the amp itself or via footswitch (I use the footswitch) It has effects. Chorus, delay, flanger and reverb; the basics but that's all you need. It has a CD input jack, an MP3 player plug in, headphone plug in, and of course, the guitar input. I wish this amp was a tube amp and not a solid state. That's really the only thing because we all know tube amps sound so much more vivid than solid-statrs. I rarely use the effects on this amp, but when I do decide to, they are wonderful. I use this amp as a primary amplifier. I don't currently have money for a cab or head, and believe me when I say that this amp kicks any practice amp's ass. I use this amp everywhere, practice, and small shows. I really do love this amp
