    This amp has amazing tone for the money!! I don't know how they did it, but these new MG amps kick butt!!!

    I tried one out at a local music store, and was blown away at the sound of the "green" mode on the overdrive channel. Excellent classic drive sound. Very Warm and very tube-like. I'd consider taking one of these to a gig, putting a mic in front. The tone is amazing!

    The "red" mode on the clean/crunch channel get some nice warm overdrive as well and the clean mode is, well, clean. I'm actually thinking of getting one of the larger models now, but the 30 really blew me away!!

    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.

    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.

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

      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

              This amp has everything that I could want. I have the programmable Marshall 4 button footswitch, and with setting up the presets, and then using my BOSS pedal effects along with them, I can get about any sound that I want. It doesn't take up much space, and only weighs in at 23 lbs. It is my third Marshall amp, and has enough variances that I don't see me needing anything else. I wish that I had bought a MG30FX when they were in production, but my job had me so busy that I didn't have time to play for about 7 or 8 years. Retired now, so lets go!

                  I use this amp with my newly purchased Epiphone 1966 SG 400 Pro. I am more than happy with the sound. If you read the amp's instructions it is very easy to use. I mainly use the amp for practice, home recording, and JAM. It is plenty powerful and the louder it is the better it sounds. I do plan on getting the optional foot switch. Over all I am VERY HAPPY with my purchase. After all it's still a MARSHALL!

                          I am always impressed with what Marshall does. Way back I had a Plexi and it blew away everything else on the market. Now I have a DSL 50 (more versatile) with a 1960A cab-reaaly loud and powerful but terrific sound. Band mates say; "Wow is it loud, but sounds great." I have the DSL 40 watt combo (became the Haze, then went back to the 40 much the same as it was.) Tube sound, celestion speaker sometimes can breakdown. So bought the Mg 30 as a smaller practice amp, backup and wanted to play around with efx. Very impressed when I got it home. A little light on bottom end as one would expect but overall impressed with very nice clean sound and full on lead sound with delay very nice. I could use this amp at practice if not playing too loud and would sound very nice and cut through okay. Marshall just kicks butt plain and simple.
