Absolutely LOVE this little amp !!! Very impressed with the sound and volume from this little thing !!

And... I got what Musician's Friend refers to as a 'restock'. It was explained to me that 'restock' actually means a 'second'... Meaning during testing, Marshall found something that was not quite up to standards, so the unit was sold at a reduced price.

For the life of me, I... or anyone else I have demonstrated it to... cannot hear *anything* wrong with this little lion !!

It's not intended for 'live performances', but for sitting and messing around at a local a bar or at a barbecue, it's absolutely great !! LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT.

I travel with work & wanted something to tote along with me for hotel stays. I bought this over the vox amplug because I simply refused depending on a battery. I regret this decision substantially. This amp is pretty awful, it sounds like the speaker is literally inside of a garbage can. If you want to hear the clean tone over your guitar, you'll be sacrificing the "clean" by turning the volume & tone up. The result is a crunchy, stale & noisy mess. Mine is always hissing & like one reviewer before me stated: don't even think about putting pedals in front of it. Pedals make the speaker sound like it's scrunching up & you can't hear the tone of the effects whatsoever. The only plus is the fact that you can play guitar in small enclosed settings at low volumes, but what's the point if the only half clean tone comes when it's quieter than the guitar itself? I will be selling this for a vox ac30 amplug.

      Comments about Marshall MS-2 Mini Amp:

      This is a good "goofing around" amp. When you want to be mobile but need that extra boost.
      Good amp for kids who are getting started and won't bug the world. Battery life is pretty good if you use it occasionally. Overdrive has a nice sound too.

          Comments about Marshall MS-2 Mini Amp:

          If you're expecting an amazing Marshall sound, you might want to invest in some of the bigger amps Marshall has to offer. If you think you can get a concert level sound out of this little guy, you will not be the happiest person. However, that level of "high" expectation would not be very reasonable or even realistic for such a little amp. This is a very cute, small amp that will help you plug your guitar so you can practice quietly in any room in your house without annoying your wife. It will distort if you crank the volume all the way out, and if you're used to the full sound of a bigger Marshall (like I do) it might make you feel like you're hearing your guitar over an old telephone (just my opinion). However, if you calibrate your instrument volume & tone you can find a happy medium. With that said, for the price it is a very nice solution to practice and if the sound seems too weak for you, you have the choice of putting headphones. I personally use it just for practice on the fly, it serves it purpose, but then again I was not expecting the best sound output. So I am happy with the purchase.

            The first MS2 I received was defective. Musician's Friend responded immediately with prompt delivery of a replacement. Excellent customer service! I love the MS2. It is convenient for clipping on my belt and walking around while practicing at home or playing at small gatherings.

                I was about to go on a trip, saw this amp, and thought it would be cool to have for the road. To be honest I wasn't expecting much but was quite surprised after plugging this bad boy in. Very impressive OD, great tone and squeals like a mother. A con to it, not in my opinion but for some is the clean tone being very crunchy. I suppose some people would hate the amp because of that lol.

                  This little thing is great for the home. The only thing that I don't like about it is the difference in volume between the clean and dirty channels. Otherwise I would recommend it to anyone.

                  Overall great product, fun to use and experiment with. Included belt clip makes it possible to walk around the house with my electric guitar and flesh out ideas. It would have been nice if it came with a power adapter or a headphone adapter, but it's probably better they keep the purchase price down. Would recommend!

                  I bought this as a gift for my Grandson as his first practice amp, along with a Peavey "Captain America" Guitar... It clips to your strap and runs on a 9 volt battery. It is very easy to play through and very portable. He's only 2 1/2 years old. So, the set up had to be simple! Which it is, and he loves it!

                    Nice little amp, portable and good sound. Runs long on the 9 volt battery. I didn't have the issues with the battery replacement, that other folks experienced. Apparently my battery compartment is fitting the battery snugger.

                          I think I can officially say my mini-amp days are over. I thought it would be a good idea to have one as a sofa amp. I've owned two, Marshall and Rocktron. Both played great the first couple times. Then they started cutting out in a sort of vibrato effect. I'm done. Except maybe the Orange Micro Crush it looks and feels solid and my friend from Norway said it Rocks. So I'm doubling down I guess at seventy clams.
