Marshall: MG15FX

Sound — 4
I use an Epiphone Les Paul 100 through it and it sounds decent, not the best sounding amp in the world though. The amp gets noisy on high volume and on overdrive 2 setting. It also cuts out a lot and gives a lot of feedback.

Overall Impression — 6
I play mostly country, rock, and blues and the amp does an alright job. If it was stolen, I would miss it, but save my money up and definitely buy a better-sounding amp.

Reliability & Durability — 4
I would definitely not use it in a gig without a backup. Also this amp is very delicate and has poor reliability/durability. The main guitar inputs are very sensitive and are very subject to damage.

Features — 8
This amp has 4 different channels. It has a clean, crunch, overdrive 1, and an overdrive 2. It also has a headphone jack, and an input so you can play your Ipod through it. The amp also has 4 different effects options.

    Or get a better amp and you don't need pedals. The amp must sound good without pedals and after that you can add some pedals if you need them. Pedals should be added to already a good sound. They are effects, not the main sound.
