Sound — 8
This amp has the very reliable Marshall sound. The reliability of Marshall is why I decided to go with this practice amp over a Fender or other brand. The clean channel I immediately feel in love with. The sound is very crisp and clean. Every note is able to ring out unhindered. The overdrive channel is also versatile. It allows for a crunchy sound on low gain to a high gain hard rock/metal sound on the higher settings.
Overall Impression — 8
I play a wide range of musical styles. This amp seems to suit them all. Like I said before this amp is meant as a practice amp. Not as a recording amp or concert amp. If you use it for what is it meant to do you will be very pleased. I have owned several practice amps and I am the most pleased with this one.
Reliability & Durability — 9
So far this amp has been very reliable for me. I bought this amp used for a local store and seems to be in great shape. I would not use this amp for a show or gig because it is just meant to be a practice amp. Its great for back stage and warming up, but when I hit the stage I will go to my larger Marshall stage amp. This amp serves well also as a amp to travel with you to Jam with friends.

The Marshall MG15CDR is a great practice amp for the value. It is a very simplistic amp to use. There is not a lot of flash to this amp, which is what makes it so great to use. This is a two channel amp with clean and overdrive. Also there is a EQ with bass, contour, and treble adjustment and a reverb setting. It features a 1 x 8 speaker that has a great tone. Even though it is just a 15 watt amp, it has a powerful sound.
