Big Marshall stack tone in a compact package.
Its 15W head and 2 - 10" speaker cabinets create a stack that is only 15"W x 37"H x 9"D, but the Marshall MG15MSII Micro Stack puts out a tone that's far from miniature. The head has all the standard MG features: control for clean volume; overdrive gain and volume; reverb level; and 3-way EQ with bass, treble, and a contour that lets you fine-tune the mids. It also boasts a CD input, an emulated line out, and a headphone jack that mutes the speakers.
Think small but sound big. Order your Marshall MG Micro Stack today.

Let me begin by saying that I have only used Marshall amps now for the better part of 25 years. In my opinion I still believe they are the only amps that truly capture the sound of rock. Although there are many amps out there that are in ways better, none of them can truly compare from a tonal standpoint for rock music the way it was originally conceived. Marshall has created an idiom in which helped forge the sound of rock. Because of this many people, including myself, have come to expect it's signature sound in rock music. A good analogy would be comparing the sound of cruiser type, foreign motorcycles with that of Harley-Davidsons. Again many of those foreign bikes are better in ways; however none of them sound exactly like a Harley. And, for a large segment of the cruiser bike crowd, this sound is what they have grown to expect in how a cruiser motorcycle should sound. I've owned and played through many different types Marshalls including Plexis, JMPs, JCM 800s, 900s, 2000s etc. and several different micro stacks.This new micro-stack is by far the best sounding representation of the product to date. In the past I have always bought them more so as just a novelty, something to dress up my living room and display the ultimate visual of rock music. I honestly think that this was part of Marshall's original conception of this product; that is being conceived as more of a novelty then a real musical tool. I have always liked the way they sounded to a degree in which I thought was a distant, small sounding example of the real thing. However, with Marshall?s new 'FDD' circuit incorporated with this product, as well as it's two distinct channels, I think it has all changed This is now a real practice amp, and 'almost' something I would consider recording with, especially from a practical standpoint. The amp's bass response is excellent, and its clean channel really emulates the sound of a tube amp very closely. Because of this new FDD circuit, it's surprisingly loud, much louder then the previous models with the same power output. I can now easily jam along with my large, powerful stereo with its 5 ft. tall Klipsch speakers Another obvious benefit of the amp?s new FDD circuit is its responsiveness to changes made in it?s EQ settings. You can get massive tonal changes just by fine tuning the contour control. I have additionally noted a dramatic improvement in reverb performance. Lead tones are excellent with the FDD button deployed and it?s reverb control turned all the way up. I call it Marshall's mighty mouse because for a little amp it really rips and pounds with authority, just like a real stack does, and to date is the closest example of the real thing. Plus, it really looks cool in my living room. This is a must have for any true Marshall fan

There is an ad in many magazines with Zakk Wylde and this amp and he is saying that it has "Crushing Overdrive". This amp is FAR from crushing and if you are a serious musician you would laugh at this amp. It's good for warming up or practicing BY YOUR SELF. It is easily overpowered by ANY tube amp and any solid state amp over 30 watts. And as for tone it doesn't sound anything like any tube amp, when I read a line from a previous review that said it sounds EXACTLY like a tube Marshall I almost vomited. It is not worth 300 bucks... For 300 bucks you can get a better non-tube amp, like a Line6 Spider II. Or if you look for one on ebay, a Peavey Ultra Plus tube head (which can be found used for 350-400 and is awesome) Or you can save your money and get a tube head... Either way I don't see any real good things about this amp other than the fact that it looks like a small Marshall. But if you think this sounds good and similar to a tube amp, you must have got done playing a cheap Krankenstein, or a Guitar Research hybrid or something. Any tone freak will laugh at any solid state amp and you should look elsewhere for a better non-tube amp because this does NOT offer the goods for a cheap price.

I have owned this 'stack' for several years now - bought it used on eBay. Great for bedroom practice. However, the 10" speakers that come with it are crap. I bought 2 Celestion G10s (UK) (again on eBay) and now this setup sounds great. It lacks a footswitch but no big deal - if you are just using it in your room - just get up and press the button. Again, great setup, looks real cool, but change the speakers - it's really like night & day when you put in better speakers (make sure the replacements are 16 ohm - like I mentioned - the Celestions G10s, or the Celestion Greenbacks. Stay away from the G10D-25s - not all that good). Also, it handles pedals pretty good - I use a Marshall Drivemaster or Guv'nor before it and it really gives you some nice sounds.
I have had this for about 5 months now. It is really good for practice. I have used it for a couple jam sessions. It gives a Fender Frontman 212r a run for its money. I can get exactly what I am looking for out of this beast.
hay I'm 14 and i just bought this Marshall! It sounds great, it's perfect for playing anywhere and it's an awesome price for people like me who can't afford 5000 dollar Marshall tube amps!p.s Don't believe the crap people tell u it's totally loud enough for gigs it's not like your gonna use this in an arena
This is a great practice amp. It has great distortion and a great clean channel. There are two complaints I have though...1) There is not foot switch that is accessable for this amp. So I can't switch from the great distortion to my other pedals by using my foot.2) Its not that loud. I only played one gig with it, and i needed my eq pedal on full volume at all times.Besides those minor fallbacks, its a very descent practice amp. But beware bringing it to gigs.
I've had this little guy for a couple years now and thought I'd share my thoughts.I'm over 50 but am still rockin' occasionally. I got this mainly to downsize. At first,I used the line out,and plugged it into the P.A. It works great. But now I use it with 4 10" cabs and its not miked. I use a digitech processor which ramps up the volume and don't have a problem being heard when we play. Thumbs up to Marshall for a back saving little amp.
I just got this amp I have played about 4 hours worth on it. From what I have seen from this amp it is a great practice amp but does not have GREAT volume. This amp is great for any type of playing the overdrive on it is fantastic. It has many controlls all of witch work great the only one that lacks a little is the reverb but other then that this amp is worth all its money. For those of you who are wondering it goes to about the lower waist of some one around 5'6"
This is a good amp for practice at home or maybe for recording if you're not a tone stickler. The contour knob is nifty and can get you some good sounds, but I think that the distortion lacks a little bit. This little head can pack a pretty big punch though. But not with the included cabs. With that setup, there's no way that it'll be loud enough for a show, but when plugged into a Marshall 4x12 cab, it can crank pretty well.
Trust me, I love this amp when it comes for distortion sound and overdrive espescially HOWEVER this amp will not get you CLEAN sounds, ever!! This amp breaks up into a overdrive sound even on the clean setting once you dial it past 5 on volume.....The Marshall name is very deceptive and overall save your money for a Tube amp or Fender or Peavy.
It took me nearly a year to buy this Marshall. I have played Fenders my whole life and wanted that classic Marshall roar. My one and only concern was weather or not this "little" amp would have enough power. It does. Our band plays medium sized venues and this is just what I was looking for. It has enough power and sound for a good sized crowd (500) and yet you can control the volume for a smaller gig. That has always been my problem-find one amp for small and larger gigs. Well, this fills both needs. Great sound, and as so many reviews have stated the clean sound will blow you away. If you are leaning towards this I would highly encourage you to purchase. 15 watts never sounded so proud.
I own the ZW/BLS limited edition. For few hundred bucks its a good amp. Don't think I'd play any gigs with it, but it good for practice and I can leave my gig amp on the truck.
