I currently use it as a practice apm in my bedroom through an Ibanez RG270 and a Gibson Voodoo SG. I works excelently with both guitars and through my band mates Gibson Les Paul and Fender Telecaster. The overdrive channel is too powerful and doesnt allow for anything short of speed metal. At high volumes the Distortion is minimal on the clean channel and Over grainy on the overdrive.

Overall Impression — 8
Overall, this is an excellent amp, capable of controling lots of other amps in series... no more to say.

Reliability & Durability — 2
This amp doesn't take too much of a beating, unlike so of my other kit. Last Month, The Warranty Ran Out And Now The Amp Has Broken Down Beyond Repair, This Is Not A Coincidence, Is A Part Of The Design... They Are Made To Break Down Beyond Repair So You Are Forced To Buy Another!!!

The Marshall MG15DFX is one of the best practice amps on the market. Although its more expensive than the CDR version, or other leading amp models. It manges to deliver much more than the price-tag would suggest. It has 2 Channels, Clean, which is very toneful, and Overdrive, which is absoloutely catastrophic! The difference between the two channels is immense. The Digital effects work wonderfully. There is a Reverb, which can be set from slight tape reverb, right upto stupid "cathedral gig" style reverb. The delay is very responsive and loses none of its tone. Chorus can be set from groovy surf tune upto phyco raver and the flanger is perfect for Ska and blues. It falls back with the problem that the clean channel has no gain control.
