    I purchased this amp 6 months ago in a local store. For the price it was the only amp in the store with 50 watts and 2 channels. Watch the fan, mine makes a severe grinding noise for the first minute or so, then smoothes out and works fine. Would like to replace it but cannot find one.This amp does not have the huge stack sound, and I think it lacks fullness in the low end, but that is subjective and I like a much fuller tone than any other guitarist I've ever met. That being said, it has a very nice tone and is well worth the money if only so I don't have to carry my JCM 2000 stack to practice. I play it using a Gibson LP double cut, Washburn MG 70, B.C. Rich warlock and a guitar I put together from parts of other guitars. It has a nice sweet tone with all of them and the overdrive has nice low end crunch with plenty of scream. The two things besides the fan that I don't care for is the fact that you can't stay clean once you pass halfway on the clean channel's volume and the reverb has a backwash to it that makes clean sound distorted no matter what you do, but if you're into straight rock n roll this amp will rock hard.

    Marshall is not what is used to be

    Comments about Marshall MG50DFX Combo Amp:

    I own this amp and have been playing guitar for 30 years. I purchased this for my son. It is not used often and looks like new. During schools show to would drop volume for no reason, and you would have to turn it off and on to return to normal volume. Today it when you turn it on it generates a loud static noise, no matter what the dials are set to, even 0. I googled this problem for the mg50dfx and other customers are getting it also. It sound great when it works but the quality of the electronic is poor.

    A good name doesn't mean quality

    Comments about Marshall MG50DFX Combo Amp:

    Hey guys. I really don't do many reviews, but felt obligated on this one. Wanted a smaller 50 watt combo about 2 years ago for small venues and home studio. I run a Roland VS for demos and I was impressed with this little amp's Emulated line out which gave great results right from the amp without having to mic the cab directly. However THIS IS NOT A LIVE AMP! Even at practice. After using it twice (and I don't play metal, mainly alternative/classic rock and jazz/ska) the sound output started to die. Warranty allowed me to take it to the local dealer, but after two trips (to two places) they sad it must be the board itself. I must say, and sorry if it makes me sound old, but they don't make them like they used to. Word of advice? Save up and get something of a little higher quality, especially if using it for live music. -TLR

    Look away!

    Comments about Marshall MG50DFX Combo Amp:

    The other guitaris in our band used one for a while, and it sucked. We all had to turn down because of this POS. Its not loud enough for any type of rehearsal/jam session. Its not reliable enough for your practice room. This amp is good for one thing though, its about the right height for you to put your foot on while you rock out a solo, or driving riff through your other amp! Check out Peaveys Bandit 112. Now thats an amp!

    Amp just quits working!

    Comments about Marshall MG50DFX Combo Amp:

    I bought a Marshall MG50DFX a couple of years ago and everything was fine. I took it out on gigs and it worked great. Now, all of sudden, it just quits working. No sound at all from the clean channel. Very faint sound from the distortion channel. Speaker works fine as I tried it on another amp head, just to be sure. This amp doesn't even have a scratch on it, and yet....will not make a sound. I do know what has caused the amp to fail, but I must say I am disappointed in the quality as far as endurance and craftsmanship. I do not know if others have encountered this problem, but this has been my experience with th MG50DFX. I hope that it can be repaired.

    not what's expected

    Comments about Marshall MG50DFX Combo Amp:

    I bought this amp from a local music store and after about a week the power cord input went. Now, a year and a half later, the speaker is dead. For being such a great name brand amp I would expect the components used to build it to be somewhat decent. I'm very disappointed.

    good little amp..

    Comments about Marshall MG50DFX Combo Amp:

    I happen to buy this amp at a good price. The clean is great, but the O.D. I don't even use. I run this amp with a combo a fender amp with my stomp boxes. You should see the people asking how do you get that sound, and I just smile. not a bad little amp at all...

    very good

    By Anonymous

    Comments about Marshall MG50DFX Combo Amp:

    I play a mexican strat thru this amp and I really like it. The reverb is a great feature and it sounds really nice. The distorted channel is pretty good, but I prefer the clean channel. but if you don't like the distortred channel, you can always just buy a distortion pedal. You can really vary the sound of each channel with the treble, bass, middle, and on the distortion channel, contour knobs. now the effects arent that special. the reverb is the only one that sounds good thru both cannels. The delay sounds good thru the clean channel, but not the distorted. Like I said before, you can always buy pedals to get the sound you want. It also has a flanger effect and a chorus effect. Neither of them really change the sound at all.Now with live performances, I have played both outside and inside shows and I love it. It is pretty loud for its size, and if it isnt loud enough for your venue, you can always mic it. and I think that the louder it gets, the better the tone is. It works well for showsOverall this is a great amp. Great for jamming with people, by yourself, or playing a show. Get it.

    Comments about Marshall MG50DFX Combo Amp:

    I bought this amp when it first came on the market. My Marshall 100 watt tube combo was too loud for most venues and weighs a ton. This amp has been abused more than any piece of equipment I have ever owned and still works great. Playing one or two nights a week in a college town can be hard on amps (and musicians) with people spilling drinks on them, kicking them, dropping them etc. The clean channel is perfect for acoustic guitar. The distortion channel sounds as good as my tube amp but at half the weight and size. It's nice to be able to grab your amp in one hand and walk a block to where you had to park. I hear funny noises from the fan on start up sometimes. WD 40 fixes that quick. Reverb could be better. FX are so-so. Plenty of power. I am happy with amp and would buy it again if I had the choice.

    Comments about Marshall MG50DFX Combo Amp:

    I use this with a tele as my main guitar and an epi lp-100 from time to time. This amp is great for bedroom playing and good for jams and smaller gigs. If you want a lot of gain this amp has it but it gets really muddy really fast when you start to turn up the od channel, I keep the gain between 1 & 2 and it's all I need 75% of the time and I just use a tubescreamer when I need a little more crunch or scream. The clean channel is pretty good, def. better than the od channel but it's a little bass heavy. You can for sure find a good/useable sound from this amp but you have to put the time into looking for it, I've had mine for almost a year and just got a sound I'm really happy with about 2 months ago. The effects are ok but they have limited tweakability, the reverb is really good but only in moderation. The fdd switch is rather stupid, there's no reason to ever turn it off. Over all it's a pretty good amp but not great one, don't get suckered in by the marshall name(like I did) shop around and find an amp that suits your needs/style(this might be it, who knows?). This amp get the job done for me for now but it doesn't truly deliver what I want so I'm currently looking for a good tube amp and I think most people considering this amp probably should too, but don't let me tell you what to think, try it out and see how it compares yourself.
