I had to downgrade a lot of my equipment and sell my Marshall Valve Combo. But I really do like this amp. You are not going to get the quality of single analog pedal effects with the built in effects, but they are still pretty good and very usable. Love all four of the channels with Crunch and OD1 being my favorite. OD2 is also very good, but more for super high gain applications and I am sure I will use it more in the future as my writing and playing changes. I have gone from that super high gain sound to more of a crunch or OD1 tone in my playing. The tones out of all four channels do an incredible job of mimicking an authentic Marshall tone, I was pleasantly surprised with how warm they all sound. The biggest thing I liked about this amp was the ease of use. I had tried a Blackstar modeling amp and I hate downloading patches and most of them sound sterile. But for the price I cannot say enough good things about this amplifier.

I have a 2003 MG15DFX and wanted the newer version with 30 watts. The max loudness on this 30 watt model is the same or lower than my old 15 watter, and I tried two of these new in box. The four channels are nice; you can use either manual or program modes. I don't like that the Tap + Store buttons say "Tuner" yet there is no tuner unless you buy the $75 optional foot pedal. Moreover, the tuner is on the foot pedal but you can't switch it on/off from the pedal itself; you have to reach over to the amp and then press and hold the two buttons on the amp. The reverb no longer has Hall like the older model; it just gives you Plate and Spring. The overall tone is shrill and hurts my ears after about 15 minutes in the same way that modeling amps do. In fact, I suspect that this IS a modeling amp, just not advertised as one. In fairness, it has a fat, punchy low-end and lots of gain. The gain reacts very well to how hard you pick, which is perhaps the nicest feature. New players who like Marshalls will dig this, but I seriously think something like Line 6's Spider 75 blows this thing away for value and versatility. Of the two I bought and tried, the first had a wrinkle in the tolex covering, the second had white paint on one of the knobs right out of the factory-sealed box and the cabinet buzzes when I hit certain notes. Both have the same low output compared to my old 15DFX. YouTube videos make the MGCFX sound like a dream, but after getting it home I'm uncharmed.

        I bought this amp to practice with as a more convenient alternative to my heavy, 2 x 12 (tube) amp. It works good, but the buyer should be aware that this is not a loud amp. In my case, this is perfectly okay. There is an annoying little hum when it is "on" but I am not strumming my guitar, and I am still trying to figure out how to quiet it, or silence it through the settings. The carbon fiber finish looks great. For my needs, it will be perfectly adequate.

              Comments about Marshall MG Series MG30CFX 30W 1x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

              My MG 30CFX arrived in 3 days in excellent condition. It looks good & knobs feel solid. The power cord is attached which may be an issue if amp is moved frequently. It is slightly larger than a Fender Frontman 25R.

              I've played 5 guitars through it (4 with humbuckers, from a 1981 Electra to 2 2014 Gibson Les Pauls). My back to back testing was with a 1994 Fender American Standard Stratocaster and a 2014 Gibson Les Paul Studio. The tone controls & gain were set a 12 o'clock, volume & master at 2 o'clock. The volume was loud enough for practice in a 16 x 24 foot room, but I don't believe it would be enough for a full band performance. The amp shined with the Gibson on all 4 channels providing nice cleans and what I feel to be very high distortion tones. The Stratocaster was nice on channel 1, but could not seem to provide enough input to give full distortion tones. The Strat sounded thin and shrill although turning back the tone helped some.

              I would very highly recommend this as a practice amp. The tones have a more "rounded" Marshall feel than with my other ss amps (3 Fenders & 2 Peaveys - 10 to 100 watts). With humbuckers it provides a good range of tones up to what I would consider metal. My preference is OD1 with gain at 3 o'clock. The reverbs sound good & provide good variety. If you play metal with a single coil equipped guitar, I would imagine a pedal to increase the input signal may help. I've really enjoyed playing through it.

                Initially bought this as a practice amp, but will be using it in my small recording studio as well. I'm mostly using the clean and crunch options with a hint of effects. The style I play doesn't call for overdrive very often. All of the effects(chorus, phase, flange, delay and reverb) are on point and clean. You can use the reverb with any of the other effects, but cannot stack the chorus, phase, flange or delay on top of each other....which is fine with me, I've got other pedals I can use if needed. I've only had the amp a week or so and, thus far, am very happy with it.

                    I like this because. It is light weight and easy to use. Also love that I can take it on trips and in the hotel I can still get that great dirty sound and lose nothing turning down the volume. My only thought/con would be all models over the MG15CFX should come with a foot pedal. other then that I think that this is an amazing amp for beginners and pros alike it has features that both will use and enjoy. I would rate it 4 stars out of 5. Add a footpedal and its a 5 hands down
