I sat down today with my buddy in Guitar Center. I was tired of playing all day through small 15 watt amps and moved over to the stacks where I stumbled upon this head on top of a Marshall cabinet. I was completely blown away! When playing with distortion, it was plenty crunchy. I can only imagine how great it sounds with the volume turned all the way up. The tone features classic Marshall versatility. You could get a variety of tones out of this beast especially when playing clean. However some of the effects come off as touchy. The reverb is good, but I feel the other effects could've been more defined and less sensitive. Other than that, this buddy is a great head that won't break the bank.

I went to my nearest Guitar Center to try this amp out, thinking I would be buying it. I already have an MG100HDFX and I was looking to upgrade because of the ability of the HCFX to dial in different sounds and store them, and the availability of a four-way switch. Also, I figured that since it was the same series, just a newer version, that the tone would be comparable. Boy, was I wrong. I brought my guitar to the store and plugged into the HCFX right away. I wasn't really worried about the clean tone as much as the overdrive, so I dialed in the same EQ settings, reverb, etc. that I use on my HDFX's overdrive channel. I was very surprised at what I heard, but there was still something else to try. It turns out that this guitar center had two used HDFX's, so the salesperson let me setup both heads right next to each other. I dialed in both amps the same way and switched between the two a few times. I was amazed at the difference. Now, I'm not trying to say that the HDFX is perfect or anything, but, for what I wanted, the HCFX just didn't cut it. The tone on the HDFX is brighter and cuts through a lot more than the HCFX. The HCFX is muddier, and sounds very processed in comparison to the HDFX. I like the extra FX and preset capabilities of the HCFX, but the tones that it produces, which is more important to me, are inferior to the HDFX, in my opinion. So, in conclusion, the HCFX didn't work for me and I went home empty handed. If you like your distortion muddy and bass-heavy, then you may not have a problem with this amp, but, for my money, the HDFX is still better.

Nice amp

By Robert Coleman

from Wilmington, NC

I've only had this a couple of weeks but so far I'm very pleased. It's pretty straight forward with a nice combination of effects, warm clean tone, and it is very loud with nice distortion level when you really twist the knobs. For the money it's a very good buy.

Marshall MG

By Nick Mardon

from Seattle, Wa

I got this amp for a gig my band BAD IDEA was playing at Studio Seven. It was more than loud enough. This amp sounds great and is super loud. If your looking for your first stage amp this is it.

Amazing sound!!

By Tim Rines

from Hernando, MS

I just returned another amp today and picked up this head and a cabinet. I really like the ease of use that this head offers. I am a beginner so I have a lot to learn, but I adjusted some knobs to dial in more bass, and & Nation Army was jamming in my garage. I couldn't be happier with this head. I would highly recommend to anyone at any level of experience...

A whole lot a Marshall goodness

By danny triatan

from Santa Clarita! CA

Let me say that this Head with the matching cab is amazing. I can go from playing acdc to Metallica with the push of a button, one of the great additions is the damping (which makes the amp sound very similar to a tube amp). It looks great, sounds great, and plays great. When I plug thin S bad boy into my ax, I can play for hours on end. I also enjoy the 100watt power, it's also like having a loaded gun. Only thing I would recommend is getting ear plugs, you don't want to end up going deaf.

Amazing stack

By dan trist

from Valencia California

This is my first stack, and let me say, it's just about the best amp I've ever payed my hands on. I've got the head and matching slant cab which goes together like doughnuts and coffee. It's features include four channels, one clean, crunch, and two different overdrive channels. I can't name all of the generas you can play, but for example, jazz, blues, country, blues rock, soft rock, rock, hard rock, metal, heavy metal, thrash metal, death metal, and melodic death metal, oh and speed metal. Whatever you do, just don't listen to the haters, they find small problems, and make them seem like the amp is a compleat wreck. But it's really a great amp for the price, and is perfect for all styles. I'd recommend getting ear plugs so you don't blow out your ears, and keep in mind, it's a screaming 100watt amp:)

Great Amp

By Elliott Mazur

from Philadelphia, PA

Extremely impressed! This is a good amp for a low price. This is a big upgrade from my old VOX DA15 which doesn't even compare to this. This amp has all the controls needed to create a great sound. This amp also has six built in effects (Chorus, Phaser, Flanger, Vibe, Delay, and Octave). All of that for an amazing price. I highly recommend this amp!

Let Me Down.

By Tom Just

from Willmar, MN

I just got this head along with the matching cab today, and let me start off by saying I'm disappointed. Each of the four channels it offers just seem to be severely lacking in tone. Of course this isn't a tube head, but I have definitely heard far better tones coming from other solid state heads... I'm not a person who really uses effects, but I tried them out anyway, and they too were lacking. I'm pretty sure I'm gonna return it and try out some other half stacks at my local Guitar Center. I hear good things about the Acoustic Lead Series stack...

Really good solid state

By John Nordstrom

from Minot, ND

I've had this amp and its matching cabinet for about 6 months now, and it can't be beat for the price. If you're expecting authentic tube tones from an amp of this price- you'll be disappointed. But if you're looking for a quality multi-channel practice amp, with 100 watts worth of different tonal options, you'll love it. I was really surprised by how vivid the channels sound, from clean to crunch to overdrive. The clean tones really sparkle. It may seem petty, but it's also great to have a headphone jack in a head unit. The build quality is definitely all there. The carbon fibre look is slick and the knobs all look solid. To me, this amp gets 5 stars for being what it is- an entry level solid state amp that can be used for jamming in apartment at 2am or rocking out a smaller/medium size venue.

Great head, Great Price

By Patrick Marshall

from Seattle, WA

I bought this amp head about a month ago......could not be more pleased. Of course it is not a tube amp, which some Marshall lovers will not be able to get over. The tone is very warm, effects are very good for not using pedals, and the volume is loud. I paired it with the cabinet in the picture, great pair. I love the Marshall products, this one does not disappoint. If you are expecting tube amp quality for this price, you are nuts. If you want a great sounding amp for a great price, this is the one. I tried lots of others in the price range, hands down, this one rocks.
