    I've had this amp for 3 years now and I've been nothing but satisfied. Plugged into a blues driver pedal this puppy can roar. Yeah it's not a tube amp but it really sounds good in most any situation that I've used it in. Don't be fooled by the 112 cab; this can roar at ear piercing levels.
    Hope my review helped!
    This amp has some really basic but nice features if you don't want to have to pay for extra pedals. I must say that I bought a Boss Blues Driver pedal because it makes the tone of this amp sound WAY better than just straight out of the box. But this amp is a really loud, wonderful solid state amp. It has some pretty nice reverb, and the tap delay thing is really handy. Kind of annoying to turn on and off during a song, so I think the only effect I've ever used live is the reverb. But this amp has some great stuff on it.
    Normally I don't give out 5 star reviews for products, but as for build quality, this sucker can really take a punch. I have used it at a countless number of gigs, and it has done incredibly. Never had any problems with it at all, and i've used and abused it for so long. The quality of the sound is adequate. For a solid state amplifier, I guess it's pretty good. But it really doesn't sound good at low volumes. The clean channel does sound great though.
    I've seen better value in other amps, but for a beginning gigging musician who needs a higher watt amp to lug around, this is an incredible amp. In my opinion, you can spend more and get something like an Egnater tube amp, which sound amazing, and a lot more "real" than this marshall. BUT it really is a great amp.

    I thought the MG 50 FX would be a larger, more powerful version of my MG 30 DFX. It's not nearly as Good. It's shrieky with very poor sustain. I'm going to have to try the more expensive Marshall amps. My MG 30 DFX sold me on Marshall.

    Awesome amp!!

    By Matt Pogue

    from Texas

    Comments about Marshall MG4 Series MG50FX 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

    I've had this amplifier for about 6 years now. I've used it for venues with over 1000 people all the way down to 10 people, so volume is never a problem because when you play in larger venues, your amp will usually be miked. The digital effects are basic but good. I've only had to replace the fan once but that was after much wear and tear so, it's built well. I love the marshall distortion and that's why I don't plan on getting another amp anytime soon. This amp lasts and is great!!!

    Amazing Amp

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Marshall MG4 Series MG50FX 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

    This amp is amazing. My dad bought this for my birthday to go with my Gibson SG Special. Its clean channel is great, along with the distortion, but for me it is mainly for classic rock, although if you play with it a bit, you might be able to get a metal tone out of it. The effects are O.K., but you might want to plug in an effects pedal to it.In other words, this amp is a great starter amp for the teenager, and can get loud. So this could be your first gig amp. Happy playing, and I highly suggest this.

    BEST AMP I HAD!

    By Justincredible!

    from jakarta, Indonesia

    Comments about Marshall MG4 Series MG50FX 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

    Despite some reviews, this amp actually can take both clean sounds and distorted ones. I used a Metal Core effect with my Cort guitar on an Orange, Esteban, and Fender Frontman amp. The sound does not actually bring its purpose. But with this Marshall amp, Metal Core and my other stompboxes lives up to their names! Long live Marshall amps!

    Great amp

    Comments about Marshall MG4 Series MG50FX 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

    I love this amp it is an awesome amp amazing tone sounds better than a line 6 spider. There where a few problems it makes a fuzzy noise now and again but I think it's because I don't cover it that often a month after I got it the pedal that controls the clean and distortion broke but that O.K because the amp it's self is awesome. Get this amp.!!!!!!

    Love it & hate it

    By AaronB

    from Iowa

    Comments about Marshall MG4 Series MG50FX 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

    I have a love/hate relationship with this bad boy. I really like all the features, such as the 4 channels and the various effects. The clean channel sounds good, but the range of tone is pretty narrow even at max gain. So there is this big tonal gap between the clean channel and the crunch/OD channels.I also like the tone you can get from the crunch/OD channels, but only for individual notes. Because here is what I hate about this amp -- if you try to play chords in crunch/OD, it sounds horrible. You hear the notes you intend to play, but you also hear this horrible bass undertone. No amount of tweaking or tinkering will make it go away, even through headphones. I took it back to the store but the rep didn't think it was a problem, and the store model sounded just the same. I kept it since it still sounded better than the options at that price range. But now I just can't stand it and since I bought the service plan I will be returning it and buying something more expensive. I just can't find anything decent in this price range.

    nice amp for the right place

    By JIm

    from upstate NY

    Comments about Marshall MG4 Series MG50FX 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

    From my first Princeton in 1965, I've always used Fenders and just figured it was time to add a Marshall to the arsenal so I gambled on this one. This review may be worthless to younger players, but as an "old timer" I first found the programmable settings hard to master. A little too complicated for this college graduate, 30 year business owner, and 45 year active gigger. Second, the 4 switchable channels were clean, dirty, dirtier, and dirtiest. I could not get a subtle growl or grind anywhere---just tons of overdrive or distortion. Third--- the FX were not foot-switchable without an additional purchase. As a player, manual FX operation just doesn't cut it. HOWEVER------ the clean channel was super sweet and had the most luscious tone ever--- but I couldn't justify keeping the amp for the single clean channel only. Again-- a really nice rig for kicking around the bedroom--- and a die for clean sound--- but I couldn't use this 2 nights a week 4 hours a night.

    MORE Amazing Then What You'll Pay For It !

    By Jerry H

    from NJ Pine Barrons

    Comments about Marshall MG4 Series MG50FX 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

    I have used a friends many, many times. Can't wait till I buy my own. Absolutely wonderful ! You get much more than you pay for. It has two separate dials for Reverb & Delay. Other FX's (chorus, phaser & flanger) are one one dial. It has a really good 12" speaker AND More importantly than anything a GREAT SOUND! Even at very low volumes (which is hard to do) For any guitarist (not bass) looking for a amp from 30 to 100W, I highly recommend that you hear it with your favorite & least favorite guitar plugged in and judge for yourself. If you play any style other than heavy metal, You'll make it your next amp. A note to Bob O. Trying to compare a modeling amplifier to a regular amp is like comparing tomato's to apples. They might both be fruit but the skin, texture, taste and feel are totally different. You may know how to play but you know very little about sound engineering. If you like line 6, use it. I and many guitarist don't like modeling amps but I don't play heavy metal either. Kudos to WordmanSeattle for the very detailed and accurate review!

    Awesome Amp

    Comments about Marshall MG4 Series MG50FX 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

    Great Marshall tone that a working man can afford! I can't add much above and beyond some of the shining reviews you see here. I can only agree.To Bob-O, if you truly "own it" and it sucks so bad and is so lame in your "30 Years" of playing experience I have one question for you. Why did you buy it? Your review is suspect, you probably work for Line 6.
