    This review is based on the fact that this is a solid state amp and I'm taking into consideration what you get for the money. I currently play though a Marshall DSL50 watt head. I have used many different Marshalls and have owned many different amp brands in the past, Fender, Line 6 etc. I have settled on Marshall because it?s my favorite amp. Ok this amp is awesome. I recently got it as a practice amp and I can?t recommend it enough. First of all, more than any other solid sate amp, it has that ?Marshall sound?. I have A/Bed this with my DSL going into my 4x12 1960 cab and I can tell you it captures it very well?way more than a Line 6 simulation. The FDD switch should be left on. It basically makes the amp sound more ?tube-like? and less ?sterile? if you know what that means. It seems to boost all of the frequencies and makes the amp sound fuller and ?bigger.? The footswitch works well and they give you a very long cord which is great. I have read a few complaints about the fan being loud but it isn?t. I assume they improved the design over time. The DFX are decent but not great. The flanger is the worst of the bunch. If you want great effects run a good multi-effects unit through the effects loop in back. The reverb is pretty good and has a large range of depth.

    I bought the Marshall MG100DFX Combo amp nearly six months ago from the Hugo Helmer Music Store of Mt. Vernon in Washington State. I tried this amp out two or three times when I decided that I would buy it... I bring the Marshall home and out of the box it sounded great. All of the features on this amp make you wonder why it did't cost any more, it has got a Clean Channel, which you can set as clean or crunch, and it has the Overdrive Channel, containing either OD1 or OD2 distorted sounds. It has the basic Gain, Bass, Middle, and Treble EQ settings on the Clean and Overdrive channels, and added Volume and Contour knob to really shape your sound. The effects are good, Chorus and Delay together, or just single Delay, Chorus, and Flanger effects and there is a seperate Reverb knob. It also has an FX loop level and mix control, and cd ins, emulated line out, and a emulate headphone jack. Not to mention a FDD(Frequent Dependent Dampening) switch. The quality on this amp is not so good...just after about four and a half months of regular use, the fan in the back of the amp broke and started making and extremely irritating buzzing noise. At first this was okay, it would stop after about 20 seconds or so, but now it just goes on for a few minutes and then finally settles down a bit. But just about a month after this problem occured, the amp JUST SIMPLY fell over and the clean channel completely went out. Not quite what I would call a good quality amp. Value on the other hand is great though, only taking $464.99 out of the money pocket, but you get what you pay for... Overall I would say that if you want a gigging amp, you should keep looking, this amp is EXTREMELY loud, although like all solid states, at those loud volumes you lose your tone and the sound breaks up some. Though this will be an exceptional PRACTICE amp...should be good if you treat it EXTRA carefully.

    Great Rock Amp

    Comments about Marshall MG100DFX Combo:

    The clean channel was not really clean. Even at the lowest gain possible there was still some overdrive. For someone who plays rock or blues this amp would be ideal, a lot of bang for the buck

    Awesome, Powerful Amp

    Comments about Marshall MG100DFX Combo:

    Overall, a fantastic amp with great sounding overdrive and clean sounds. Alright with the FX but those aren't the reason you are buying the Marshall to begin with.
    The crunch and OD1/OD2 channels sound great, especially if you throw an OD pedal with it. The digital effects are alright, you could always get those sound from a stomp box and have a much better sound. But if you are on a budget after getting this, the fx will do.The FDD switch is a really good feature for those who do want that "tube-like" sound and want an affordable Marshall as well.
    Its a Marshall.........do I really have to say anything else? Well built amp, its heavy but not too heavy. Good enough for a gig, small to medium sized.
    Once again....its a Marshall.......sounds great, looks awesome and it is very loud for the price.

    Must of got the bad apple

    By Topzpin

    Comments about Marshall MG100DFX Combo:

    Got this amp for Christmas. It is blown out. Parts are very hard to find. Not made in England. Just a cheap product Marshall put out. If you are into logos go for it. Maybe I just got a lemon. Very noisy when it did work. Not recommended.

    WOW

    By Blake D

    from Poteau, Oklahoma

    Comments about Marshall MG100DFX Combo:

    I recently purchased a Marshall MG100DFX. After blowing two amps in a week, I decided to quit messing around with other brands. The most recent amp to blow was a 400 watt tube amp (not a Marshall). I thought this amp with its tube warmth, would be very expensive to replace. I could not have been more wrong. My Marshall MG100DFX far exceeds the sound and quality of the tube amp i had just destroyed. This is an amazing piece of equipment. The range of sounds is unbelievable. I never realized how hot my 82 Dean was. The sustain and Hendrix type feedback are unbelievable for just a 100 watt amp. Why would anyone buy anything but a Marshall!!!!

    Straight up, Amazing Amp

    By Mabcreg

    from Ontario, Canada

    Comments about Marshall MG100DFX Combo:

    People tell me that to buy a Marshall is to "pay for the name," I say they are jealous because their amp is not as good. Trust me, it's more than worth the money. I have never heard a better distortion from any amp, and the clean is more than tube-worthy. The included effects are a bonus, but the focus here is tone, and you get a lot of it. Great for someone with a lot of effects pedals. An amazing amp, through and through!

    Excellent Amp for Cheap

    By Sean H.

    from Lebanon, PA

    Comments about Marshall MG100DFX Combo:

    This amp is truly one-of-a-kind. I was a bit hesitant about putting down $500 for a solid state amp that I rarely hear anyone talk about, but it's actually a great amp. I use an Epiphone Slash Signature Les Paul guitar, so naturally combining a Les Paul and a Marshall was a match made in Heaven. I can make my guitar scream, and I get almost the EXACT tone Slash has on "Sweet Child O' Mine". If you are looking at getting a good practice amp or even a touring amp, this is it. Only problem is the effects are a bit weak. However, that's not the reason I bought the amp. It's a great, versatile amp.

    Not enough for the money

    By Netzman

    from California

    Comments about Marshall MG100DFX Combo:

    This is a good amp, I play it through my half-stack and it can handle the push. I don't think it was worth the money however. For only a little more you can get a full half stack and have the option of upgrading to a full-stack eventually. Quality and effects are great.

    Nice Solid State Marshall!

    By Trexx-p5xrw

    from Rochester Michigan

    Comments about Marshall MG100DFX Combo:

    This amp has some great tones. Whether your using clean tones or the built in distortions, it can pretty much cover any music out there. I use a Gibson LP STD and a American Strat. Both guitars sound great on this amp. I actually sold a Fender Deville 2-12 to buy this one. If classic rock is your style or the blues, this amp will do its job. No ice picky highs and muddy lows. The amp's sound in melodic on clean and smooth with great sustain on the 2 OD channels. The effects are not bad. I like the chorus. The reverb is very good for a solid state amp. There is also a second channel called, "crunch". It is a great channel for blues, Cream, Hendrix...well you get the picture. Great amp. Very pleased with it. You don't have to buy a tube amp these days to get a good sound. Less maintenance also.
