This amp is great as both a beginner's amp and practice amp. This Marshall has great value for the price. The overdrive is not as clear as I would like, but that is only a minor setback,and the clear channel is great for jazz or light rock. This is the cheapest decent amp I have ever played. I recommend it as a beginner or practice amp, and is great with someone with a tight budget. Once again, great amp for the size and money.

The Marshall MG15CDR is a really unremarkable little amp. I bought it when I was just starting to play guitar, knowing that the Marshall name is well-respected. The amp isn't bad. Nothing went wrong; when I play my PRS Custom SE through it it sounds like music coming out. However, the overdrive setting sounds like mud. I was unable even to differentiate between chords when it was engaged, although the clean channel was ok. Recently, while visiting a guitar store, I had the chance to play my guitar through an Epihone Valve Junior head and cab. I was blown away. Suddenly, my guitar sounded completely different (in a good way). Everything just came alive. The guitar's tone knob, which I had previously considered useless, was revealed to be extremely influential on the sound. It's just that, with the Marshall, I couldn't hear it. Before you complain that I'm unfairly comparing a solid state amp to a tube amp, know that the Epiphone setup only costs about $100 more than the Marshall. For a $100 bump, the sonic difference is immeasurable.

Black Sheep of the Marshalls

By Haha, Crackhead

from Tennessee

I've owned this amp for over a year now. At first, it was a pretty decent practice amp. However, when my ear for tone began to develop, I started to notice that the amp wasn't very good at all. The overdrive is very muddy and digital-feeling. The clean channel is satisfactory. But, it tends to break up often anywhere over half volume. This is a decent amp for practicing at home. But, there are much better amps in this price range.

My First Amp

By josh

from newport news

I got my first amp when I was about 13 years old. At the time I was using my dads Gibson Les Paul electric while teaching myself to play. I love the quality of Marshall amps I have been using the same amp for almost 10 years and have not had many problems. The occasional blown fuse but if you replace it it works perfect. I love my Marshall and will never use another brand of amp.

A good starting amp.

By Brock

from Indiana

I bought this amp a few years ago and it still works well. This amp has good range from clean to hi gain distortion and the EQ does a good job varrying low end "scooped" sounds to balanced tones. For this price a three band EQ, two channels and reverb is all you can expect. It's fair to to buy this amp for practice or just to have something to throw in the back of your car and drive to friends house to play, like I have many times. ^-^ I'm glad I bought it.

Great practice amp

By AcesUp

from Bay Area, CA

This is not a bad amp. I bought it when I lived in an apartment, and it's plenty loud for that type of setting (esp. for a 15W amp). Sound is good with nice clean tone and you can easily get noisy by applying a healthy amount of gain. My one complaint is that the reverb feature just stopped working not long after I bought the amp. Since it wasn't too important to what I wanted out of my sound, I simply forged ahead without it. I am a little disappointed that it broke so quickly, Marshall having a good reputation and all.

MARSHALL RULES

By MR. LESTER PAUL

from Brewer, Maine

For your money this amp is the best value. You can get all kinds of sounds from this amp. When you see it online you would get the impression that it is only a little bit bigger but trust me its a lot larger and a lot louder. I have had this amp for a month now and i have no problems with it. It has classic sound with a not so very classic price. BUY IT TODAY!!

MARSHALL IS THE BEST

By MetalRiff121889

from Hightstown, NJ

This amp is great for the music I play which is metal. It has a good rev'd up sound, the cleaned tone is awesome TOO ! I love the features with the gold and Marshall symbol. I plays good with my Ibanez GRG121.

Terrific Little Practice Amp

By I like Gibson Les Pauls.

from Yardley, PA

This amp is a fantastic practice amp. The distortion on this thing is great, and its always fun to have a little natural reverb in there (you can even hear the spring when you set it down). My friend borrowed it for band practice when his VOX was in the shop, and it worked fine, we could hear it easily over the drums turned up to only about four and a half. It works great for that kind of stuff, and the distortion really is fantastic. Marshall, you've done it again.

good second amp.

By metaldude613

from Washington DC

this is an amp that is t be used as a guitarist's second amp. If your looking for a good practice amp that you can get some great tones out of, go for a marshall mini stack or the zakk wylde mini stack. again, this is a guitarist's second amp.

Excelent amp, It̴��s most that I had expected, for the price, nice overdrive, spring reverb, good eq, bright sound, good volume level, and a warm sound in the clean channel, Well, is excelent for practice, or a small practice place. sorry for my English, I'm from Latin America.

Perfect amp for practice and casual playing around the house

By Old 6-Stringer

from Scottsdale

Not overly feature-laden as with many of the program type of amps but this little beauty is just enough to make practicing and playing for one's own personal enjoyment truly enjoyable. Straightforward knobs, two simple pushbuttons - easy to adjust, consistent results from session to session, no surprises, nothing sophisticated to have to learn or master. If you can turn a knob, you can master this amp and its controls. For me, it's a refreshing break away from the endless electronic wizardry of many amps and back to the basics. Probably not an amp for most but if you're looking for a clean, no frills, easy sound with reverb, this amp may be just right for your needs.

Marshall - a "Warmer " voice

By The Old Man Down the Street

from Metairie, LA

Just like there's nothing like a Fender Amps' tone you can't miss the unmistakable warmth of a Marshall. I use this amp for practice mostly, but it really shines with my electric/acoustic classical guitar. I can output directly through my Behringer mixer right into my computer. If the neighbors are asleep, I just put on my headset and rock on. Mellower than a Fender and to me more "vintage" sounding. If you've got a Fender at least get this little baby for some serious variety in your tone.

Bang For Your Buck!

By THEDUDE

from Salt Lake City, UT

I've had the Marshall MG15CDR for almost three years now and it still works just as great as the day I bought it. It has excellent smooth sound that can be used for acoustic perfomances. I have a line 6 amp that is no comparison for my Marshall. The only thing I have found a problem with it is that the 15 amps can't override drums. But it's a great get up and go amp!

Sounds like a JCM 900 head!

By TJWX5

from california

I don't know how a 15watt combo amp can sound so good, rock distortion, bluesy cleans. It really reminds me of the sound of a marshall JCM 900 4100 head. Great value, reverb is not that effective, but it does add a natural ambience.

THIS AMP ROCKS!!!

By lpschwarzy1623

from Spanaway, Washington

I just got this amp about 2 weeks ago and it rocks!!! I even played it on stage with my dads country band and they mic all there amps but they didnt mic my Marshall and i was still just as loud, if not louder than them!!! Partner this amp with a Marshall JH1 Jackhammer Distortion Pedal and you have got a power couple on ur hands!!! its great!!! and it is light and compact but still delivers power!!! remember, BLEED MARSHALL!!!

Terrific, straightforward and great sounding practice amp.

By OldSixStringer

from Arizona

Having brought back another amp because it was too complicated and erratic, I followed the recommendation of the GS saelsperson and bought this amp. I'm happy to say that it's exactly what I was looking for. Clean sound, straightforward controls, no programming capabilities, easy to adjust all settings and then go back to later on, etc. If you're looking for a great practice amp with excellent traditional sound plus overdrive and conventional knob adjustments, this may be just the amp for you. If, on the other hand, you want a wide array of electronically produced sounds, effects and programming capabilities beyond those of an overdrive channel, then this is not the amp for you.

Insane

By Kyle D.

from Kinnelon, New Jersey

This amp is unbelievable, and I mean simply unbelievable. First of all like any other Marshall this amp's overdrive cannot be beat by a competitor in the price range. The reverb is not the most potent you will ever hear but it definitely can be counted on. While it is the overdrive that is the star of this amp the clean is also great, you can turn up the volume and it will still maintain a nice clean sound. Lots of tones to choose from, that and the clean and overdrive make this amp great for a variety of genres. I use this amp with My Ibanez RG37 and Stratocaster and it delivers fully. For such a small amp this thing reallt packs a punch, I originally intended it to be a practice amp for myself but know take it to band practice with me. This amp is 100% worth the money, I would very highly recommend this to anyone, beginners or experts.
