Hey if this is your first amp and you dig it, rock on. I'll be writting a review on negativity later.....

Try to keep it positive wink.gif

Of course reviews are very personal and also related to what experience one has of different amps, in this case. If MG is your first amp, it will likely get a high rate. If you used to have a MG then owned different Mesa Boogie, Bogner, Marshall, Orange and VHT and would have to return to MG I'm confident the rating would be low.

I belive experience of what's being tested should be a parameter to make it easier for any review readers to relate to the object being tested. I will look into adding that to the review template.

I had Marshall RG30CD or something like that. It is basicaly the same amp, only this one has effects and mine had only reverb. I must agree that this amp is really bad. I have taken in consideration the reviews experience. I do agree with him that it can be a good as a first-amp-ever for some time. Mine has served me well over the period of 5 years, and i sold it just to have something for gigging but i always disliked his metalic sound. The greatest fault of this amp is surely a 10" speaker and poor OD channel (the pedals sound better than the amp`s drive - come on wink.gif ) But hey, for that price you do get a little Marshall. Advantages would be maybe a good loudness, and a decent durrability, but thats not enough.

So to sum up, i would never recommend someone, even beginners, to buy the MG series. FIrst try the AVTs. THat should be your minimum choise if you want to get some Marshall sound.

I was going to buy an MG15, but I changed my mind and went with a VOX DA15 for a practice amp, and I'm very happy with my decision...better amp (imo), and less money.

i'v own a marshal mg15cd i'm not so profesional with deciding if the MG series is good or bad...but probaly they have some - points becouse they are so cheap

but if you are beghiner like me i'm recomendet this amp...what is bad i'm think is overdrive {u can use some pedal} but the clean chanel is ok

Sadly no amplifier that represents the original Marshall sound.
And way too expensive for it's value.
I don't understand why Marshall made fools of themselves by releasing this amp mellow.gif

I see what you mean but there's of course a strategic descision to keep the MG.
Because Marshall is a company and companies aim to earn money. I wouldn't be surprised if they make more money off of the MG series than any other amp series. So they'd be fools to drop it since they'd loose great sales and lots of beginners would choose another brand for their beginner amp and thereby lots of returning buyers when the MG users want to upgrade would be lost too.

Why change a winning team like the MG just to please more experienced players like you and me when their present users seem very happy with it? wink.gif

You're right, of course. They just write something like "sounds like an all-tube amplifier" "with patented technology" or whatever in their product description and the customer is willing to believe it. Most people think as long as there's a Marshall-logo at the front it can't be bad.
A friend of mine payed 500€ (a few years ago) for his Marshall MG100 and, well it sounds awful compared to other amplifiers in this price category.

Be interested and compare the equipment you intend to buy. I never trust a brand, just the product.

if he do that like beghiner..i'm not suprise cool.gif or there is second reason he probally want the 100wamp but is't easy to find something with the price...anybody who visit some music store like me know it

i'v been also realy suprise like 4 month ago when i'm went to SamAsh store{and start to play quitar} look around and see marshal mg50 for 350$ and also next no-mg masrshall 30 or 50 w amp for 1600$ cool.gif
actualy like beghiner i'm be pick anyway the mg ..
1,becouse the pirce
2.becouse like beghiner i'm was not sure at the time if i'm stay with quitar rolleyes.gif

but now i'm know the MG is crap..but i'm know this just becouse u guys who are more professional like me say that cool.gif

so for example i'm have MG15CD for 130$
do i'm or anybody else gonna have realy better Amp if put same money like me and buy something diferent??like MG

i'm talk about all MG series not justMG15cd

Lol damm I just bought one too unsure.gif !!!! As far as I am concerned it sounds better than my peavly practice amp!. It does sound a little digital i will admit but if you can buy one used as a first practice amps, there is nothing wrong with it, good range of effects. I guess if your experienced in amps this might not be particularly good but it get´s the job done. I diden´t pay a lot for it so, as the saying goes, if you pay peanuts... expect monkeys lol.
