Well, let me start by saying that if you are someone who depends completely on the sound of your amp and no effects, then this amp may not be for you. I got this amp when it was on sale at MF for almost half off and I def think it is worth every penny of it. But let me clarify that I only use this amp simply just as a speaker for my guitar. I acquire my sound through my pedalboard. I don't use anything on the amp other than having it on clean while I do everything with my pedals, (distortion, flanger, phaser, EQ, ect). So this amp is perfect for me. Let me clarify somethings though, this amp is not made from carbon fiber, it only has carbon fiber looks. The amp has a great clean channel for the price and the distortion is just okay. Some will like some will not. I use my pedalboard for any amp, no matter. The amp also comes with a 2 switch pedal, for distortion and clean. The on-board effects aren't too bad. The reverb sounds great while the flanger, phaser and such sound rather very digital and over the top. I also expected the amp to have more features as well. For the price and size, I expected more. But never the less it gets the job done. Overall this is a huge improvement compared to the old MG's. Just try it before you buy it.

I've switched to this amp from a small Marshall MG30DFX (30W Solid State with FX) assuming that it will have the same sound but LOUDER, and it almost came true. This amp is pretty loud indeed, I have never had to turned it up more than 5 (not even on our loudest gigs), still having a crystal clean clean channel. It also has a nice crunch if you like that, but the two OD channels do not have the sound I wanted (and waited after the 30W one), mostly because the MG102CFX does not have a contour knob to find your tone with. It's more than good for classic rock, but not heavy enough for metal or so.

The effects are nice and handy, except for the octaver, which is not exactly in tune. While I really dislike spring reverbs, the studio reverb in this one sounds great! You can choose from four types of delay, and there is a tap tempo option. The reverb, delay and modulation effects can be switched on and off separately. The EQ works well, I even needed to take back from the lows a little as the amp gives more than enough bass with my Strato.

The greatest problem with this amp is its cooling, which is actually insufficient for a hot gig. In Summer you can find yourself in a club without air-conditioning, and if you have to crank your amp up above 4 or 5, eventually it will become so hot that the heat protection kicks in, making your MG102CFX totally silent until it cools down again. (Mine has been RMA'd twice, and sent back by the service that the cooling and heat protection is in original state and works as it has to.) Now I have a powerful Marshall combo with the possibility to mute in the middle of any gig, making it hard to rely on.

Great amp for home or stage

By Timothy

Comments about Marshall MG Series MG102CFX 100W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

This is a great amp. It looks really good and has a lot of quality as you can tell by the case and knobs are not junk. This piece came in a well padded shipping box so it was perfect and there was no damage. It also has great sound and lots of adjustment. Really nice foot pedal too. I use this in my home only for now. Has plenty of power.

Comments about Marshall MG Series MG102CFX 100W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I do not own this but tried it in store. If you want Marshall tone that isnt modeling in an affordable amp, this is it. Marshalls have always had and never changed from a certain tone...that upper midrange crunch. I was comparing this to an Acoustic lead series and the marshall has the more organic raw tone. The acoustics high gain channel is more about solid state metal tone ala Crate/Randall.

The effects are pretty good and lush if you want them heavy in the mix. I prefer reverb and a tad of delay only and it sounded great.

The only drawback is , and this is common with all solid state amps that are less than say 200 watts , is it flattens out when cranked. Sounds dead and cardboard like. But if you have any experience with amps at all, most know this. Randall ( and Crate at one time ) were wise in making solid state heads in the 150 to 200 watt rms range that sounded good when cranked...but i suppose companies wised up and realized youd spend more on a tube amp if you wanted loud. So this amp is NOT for someone that gigs with a death metal band unless you have a good monitor system. Otherwise , it sounds great !

One more thing- not alot of low end in these. Could add a boss eq to the loop if you wanted more low chunk...but thats not marshalls fotre' anyway.

For good hard rock and classic metal tones , this amp is great !

And the guitars i played through it were a epiphone les paul traditional pro , and an ESP ltd m-300 fm with emgs.

Outstanding sound and quality you would expect from MARSHALL!! This solid state sounds just as good as my 410H. Warm tube like tone and amazing features to go with it! Very versatile for all genres of music from country, blues to punk, heavy metal. I highly recommend this amp to any band that plays live in any venue!

Amazing

By DAVID TATUM

from Pampa, Tx

Comments about Marshall MG Series MG102CFX 100W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I recently purchased this because I have been wanting a new amp. I love playing Marshall's, and this one is beautiful. I Have two Dave Mustaine Dean V's, one tuned to E and the other to D and this amp brings the best out of both of them. I am still playing with some of the settings with it. The buying factor to me was the decent prince and the fact that it came with a foot switch. I would recommend this amp to everyone.

Exceeds expectations

By Dave Poush

from Leon IA

Comments about Marshall MG Series MG102CFX 100W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

Upgraded my amp to go with my first Gibson. Ordered a "blemished" (that I've yet to find the "blemish"). Got it on a promo 15% off. To be accurate: this is the first time I've owned quality equipment over cheap beginner's guitars and amps, and I'm only a novice. But the sound and quality is far better than I expected. Turns out I play better than I thought! I've only just begun to learn how to use all the effects. My opinion, fantastic amp for the money!

Fairly heavy amp not to have side handles. A minor annoyance though. Classic features that I'll most likely use. I got an even better deal as it was a restock. Very pleased!!

Marshall and Les Paul

By M B

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Marshall MG Series MG102CFX 100W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I just bought my Marshall MG102CFX and I love it. I have a Gibson Les Paul Traditional and an Epiphone Les Paul Ultra III and the sounds coming out of these guitars through this amplifier are incredible. Marshall and Les Paul there is nothing else like it. I only wish I lived in a place where I could crank up the volume without pissing off my neighbors.
