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.

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

    Awesome tone comes out of this thing. Has everything you need. OD2 has a great metal sound and the clean and Crunch are awesome. The OD1 channel however, seems no different than the crunch regardless of the settings. Plenty of power. If you're like me, I wasn't used to the whole new age preset thing because I prefer manual everything, but there is even a manual mode so it's great.

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

    I don't go out and gig. I like to play around at home and maybe at a friend's house and this amp lets me do just that and more. Don't buy this expecting the quality of a $2000+ tube amp, because that is not what you are paying for. This amp is absolutely perfect for the price you pay for it. I can get such a wide variety of sound out of it, from heavy metal, to clean country. The storage feature is amazingly simple to use and helpful if you find a sound that you do not want to lose on a certain setting. Overall, best amp that I have owned, and easiest to use. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

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

      I love Marshalls and regularly play a pair of JVMs. I bought an MG to use as a travel amp and for the added features. Unfortunately, the overall tone had too many unwanted elements for me to enjoy playing with this amp. If you are used to playing with tube amps with great tone and dynamics, playing one of these amps will ruin your day. :(
      Then again (with a few exceptions) you get what you pay for.

      Great sound, and very portable. Has nice effects, but are kinda limited, not a lot of variation on the onboard effects. Fairly loud for 30watts, has a great warm tone, My axe has PAFs and sounded excellent with warm bluesy sound. Great for the budding amateur.

            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.
