    Loud rock'n'roll punch. Got the MG for Christmas '08. For a non-tube amp, I am quite satisfied. Dial up the bass on the distortion channel and a strat will sing, scream, moan, groan, cry and wail while using the bridge single coil. Power and open chords are well defined with each note crystal clear. Minor, 9ths and 7ths sound just as good. Awesome tone for a non-tube amp. I run the gain at 3/4, the bass at 3/4, the 'contour' at 3/4, and the treble at 2/3. With a very, very short delay setting and no reverb, my strat, when slaved to this amp, ROCKS. Think Classic Brown Sound.

    Buyer Beware... not at all worth the cash

    I bought this amp because of a recombendation from a friend. I may not be friends with him much longer! What a bust. The dfx affects are the only thing about this amp that is worth the money, and even those are only pliable if you sit right next to the amp. If you play live... it's just not loud enough. The distortion on this amp is average at best, and the fan makes too much noise... what an embarrassment it is... especially when you try and mic-it through a PA. The stereo sound in the dfx mode is another issue. If you like the sound you get when playing while practicing, when you mic that sound it feedsback through the board, and is not as strong as it is by itself. I took this high priced lemon back to the dealer I purchased it from, and they also said it had a very high return rate from consumers who purchased it. I exchanged it for a Crate GT1200 Head and Cab, and got money back... I got a half stack, more volume, and killer sound from Crate. Marshall is the corvette of amps when you have enough cash to mortgage your house to buy the vintage, but for this price range, this amp is just horrible. It might be good for a practice amp, but even then you will out-grow it very fast. don't buy this amp unless you never plan on leaving your room.

    Nice Amp

    By Steve-ZmVVO

    from SoCal

    Comments about Marshall MG250DFX Stereo Combo Amp:

    Great sounding distortion and clean. The effects sound pretty cool. The knobs are easily broken - be careful when putting it in your trunk! The distortion channel is pretty good, but not much control over volume, once you roll your guitar's volume up to about 1.5 the volume leaps up - there is no in between. It is either full on distortion or clean. This amp can get load as hell. I got mine for way cheap - I think it was a floor model. I don't know if I would spend this much on it though. A couple hundred more and you could get a tube amp..

    Good for your money

    By Samsara

    from virginia

    Comments about Marshall MG250DFX Stereo Combo Amp:

    Bought this amp about a year ago. Have had no problems with a loud fan like others. The distortion is great, you just have to work with it to get what you want. The clean is really bassy but for the music I play it sounds good. Is definatly very loud which is what I wanted since my drummer is a caveman. I would definaly recommend it over other amps of the same price range. The effects are ok too, but nothing special. Just play the one you want to buy because two of the same models will sound different. Make your lazy guitar store employee take it out the box.

    Comments about Marshall MG250DFX Stereo Combo Amp:

    This was is a really good for giving you a Good Marshall sound. That is if your in your basement or somethin like that. You wont have one problem woth this with the volumes low.()which is still loud..very loud) but once you crank the sound up to about halfway you get alll kinds a feedback.. A few of my friends own the kustom 65fdx.. I highly recommend the kustom 65dfx for a more crunchy sound and it 2 has a great clean channell being a kustom. Overall the marshall is good on low settings but once the volumes up you will get feedback and theres no escaping it.

    Comments about Marshall MG250DFX Stereo Combo Amp:

    Wow, got this baby bout a year agogreat sound, never go back on a marshall sound. I have a JCM 900 and I use this for practice. This thing is LOUD AS HELL, and the same tone as my 900, I strongly reccomend it to any style of music, just the only problem is my fan is loud when starting up, but it goes away after a minute. The effects are kind of lame but I dont use them anywyas, I like the true sound of an amp. Strongly reccomend this baby

    Weak Marshall

    By Guitarsforeveryone

    from Portland, OR.

    Comments about Marshall MG250DFX Stereo Combo Amp:

    I bought this amp (Marshall MG250DFX) 3 yrs ago (after having returned a Line 6 2x12) when I joined a band and figured this would work for gigging as well as practice around the house. It sort of did that. I used it for practice with the band and it's loud enough, sounds great, etc. however, after only 6 months, it started crapping out on me. The volume would cut in half for no reason and would only come back full once I messed with the channel volume knob or smacked the back of it. Needless to say, at the asking price and having Marshall's name on the front, this thing should've lasted for years before turning into a POS. Sooo... for me it worked out because I had already bought a JCM 900 half stack to use live. I still have the amp and use it only at the house for practice as I can't trust it live. It still pops in and out on volume, but at the house it's no big deal. If I had it to do over again, I would've kept the Line 6 or just stepped up & spent the coin on a Hughes & Kettner or Randall.

    You can not beat this Marshall combo for the money. Plenty of power, great marshall sound and versatile. Keeps up with a half stack and with effects on the clean channel this amp rocks!

    Marshall Law

    By Cash Tingley

    from Long Beach Washington

    Comments about Marshall MG250DFX Stereo Combo Amp:

    Let me start out by saying that I have owned this amp for over 4 years now. Shorty after I first recieved this amp the fan started making a rather obnoxious sound every time I turn the amp on...but the noise will only last about 30 seconds then is reduced to a slight hum. This is a really great amp for $500. The clean channel is very nice and brightly voiced, to me it is nicer than the clean channel on my Peavey JSX half stack, which sounds decidedly steril by comparison. The overdrive channel on this amp is not as pleasing as on my JSX, but that should come as no surprise. I think this is a great amp as is, but could easily sound better if you use it in conjunction with a couple nice sounding distortions or overdrives run through the clean channel of this amp which as I said is superbly voiced. Another great thing about this amp is the headroom you have since each of the twelve inch celestion speakers are wired for 50 watts seperatly, and has stereo effects loop returns. This amp is very punchy and even a little bit farty if you're playing it too loud. In other words.... you'll probably want to mic it up if you need considereable volume. I would recommend this amp to anyone, it's great for practice and rehearsal situations, and if you have the gear to get the most out of it then it would serve just as well in a live application. As a side note, you may want to think about an amp stand for it.
