Great Studio/Gig amp

By AliceCooper360

from Woodstock,CT

Comments about Marshall MG250DFX Stereo Combo Amp:

This amp has a clear crisp tone that is great for any type of music. It has only a few sounds for distortion but the tone is excellent. You can't compare this marshall to any other company's amp. The only thing that I did notice is that the jacks on other amps i have seen were metal but on this amp the jacks are plastic. Either way it still makes a great sound on both clean and distorted. If you ever get the chance to play it you will know what i'm talking about. It has the power for both a studio recording and for a gig.

Good amps some issues.

By AmpUSome

from North Carolina

Comments about Marshall MG250DFX Stereo Combo Amp:

I paid $500 for this amp. The second time i turned it on the fan in the back started making a funky buzzing noise that will eventually subside after a minute or so. Seems like this is happening to other folks. Nice tone. Sturdy foot pedal.

Not Half-Bad

By Goldtop26

from Phoenix , Az

Comments about Marshall MG250DFX Stereo Combo Amp:

My good friend has one of these at his place so I get to play it about twice a week and it's a pretty good amp considering the price. As mentioned, the fans buzzing noise is extremely irritating when your playing quietly but besides that minor annoyance the thing rocks! I usually play either my Gibson LP or Dime Razorback through it and the both sound great and it especially supports the Dimebucker on the Razoorback. The effects are week, except for the reverb, so don't expect anything great but ti does get the job done. I own a couple Marshalls and for a couple hundred bucks less you can get a Micro Stack which looks cooler, has the same kick-a@# reverb, and still has 45 watts of power! I have one and it's awesome, so overall not abad amp but there are better amps out there so just find one that suits you. Overall: B-

This is a overall good amp

By Rock16

from Butler, PA

Comments about Marshall MG250DFX Stereo Combo Amp:

I just got this amp today. the effects on this amp all sound the same to me but it dosent bother me because i use pedals. The volume is increadable. I just use it half way and it vibrates the house. I use to use a digitech hot head pedal but the overdrive on this amp sounds better. The is some fuzz when the amp is up. so i would recommend a a boss NS-2 noise suppressor. overall a good amp for a decent price.

Awesome Amp

By SGplayer

from Matawan, nj

Comments about Marshall MG250DFX Stereo Combo Amp:

I own this amp. Bought it back in November. Pretty good sound quality. I play it using a Gibson SG standard. The clean sounds awesome and the distortion is great too. Not too powerful but real good for it's size and price.

A Great Amp but....

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Marshall MG250DFX Stereo Combo Amp:

I've used this amp for over a year and loved it. The distortion is great as well as the clean. The delay sounds terrific for soloing and its loud enough for most gigs. Now the bad news, after a year of trouble free gigs, one of the speakers stopped working and I had to finish the gig out by CRANKING the hell out of it. It sounded terrible. Now I must pay to have it fixed or buy a new amp. I didnt think I would only get one year out of this amp.

Great, Really.

By PlayMeTele

from Albany Ny

Comments about Marshall MG250DFX Stereo Combo Amp:

I played it in the store awhile ago...I played it with one of thier Epiphone Sg's and it sounded great. No hum or anything, just pure clean sound. The only thing I dislike is the Digital effects. I would prefer analog but they did work pretty decent anyways.

Marshall Class

By Charles Peck

from Lake Panasoffkee, FL

Comments about Marshall MG250DFX Stereo Combo Amp:

I have always wanted a 1st class amp. This Marshall MG250 is it. I have been a Peavey fan and owned a very nice one that I bought in 1975. Also I recently bought a Crate 60 watt accoustic amp. The crisp clarity of this Marshall is by far superior. I researched and tried many in the showroom. I played a Gibson LP with it from the dealer as I have a new LP and Gretsch 5120 at home. I started with the Marshall and carried an LP from amp to amp. Tried stacks of many also. I just kept coming back to the 250 over and over. I was prepared to spend more and when I saw the price on the 250 I knew I couldn't go wrong so I bought it. That was on October 5, my birthday. I have been playing constantly and can tell you my other amps do not come close to the sound that this puts out. I do not have any fan noise like some of the other Posts' have mentioned. The effects on this amp are adaquet for me. I do not use the distortion in my style of music anyway. I have played with the settings some tho and have come to the conclusion that you have to get used to the way you set knobs to get what you want for sound. Also the settings on your guitar can make a vast difference too. I get a cleaner sound when the guitar volumes are set high and gains and volume set on amp to the level you want to play at. I routinely stop in music shops and still compare with what they have and none of them sound as good as the Marshall. This amp is gig ready. I would not be ashamed to play anywhere with this amp. It is a quality amp and cabinet. You can also buy an extension cabinet if you want to turn this into a half stack. A versatal amp for the money. If you are a beginner, hobbyist or play gigs this amp will do the job without costing you an arm and a leg. Marshall Tone Too! All my guitars sound great on this amp and I mean great!

Solid Marshal Amp.

By Da Cappo

from Dirty Jerz

Comments about Marshall MG250DFX Stereo Combo Amp:

I was playing on my father's old amp (one of the first solid states) for years until I picked this one up. This amp has a lot of great features and the built in overdrive is decent. It comes with digital enhancement for the effects which also is a great feature. When I plug in my ESP Eclipse (active EMG 'buckers), the clean channel is flawless and you can crank the volume all the way up with only negligible background noise. I personally prefer floor pedals to the provided overdrive channel, but that's really only a personal preference. The 2 overdrive channels allow for a lot of versatility from Zeppelin fuzz to Pantera thrash. The effects are awesome and I use them with my overdrive floor pedal. I only wish you could combine more than one effect at a time (besides the stock chorus/delay setting). My only problem is that the fan buzzes pretty loudly when initially turning the amp on. I'm not sure if this is common with these, but the buzzing goes away after a couple minutes and the fan works normally. Overall, if you're looking for a small venue / practice room combo, this is a great deal with decent overdrive and effects channels and a good clean tone with screaming volume.

Freakin awesome!

By Hector

from mexico city

Comments about Marshall MG250DFX Stereo Combo Amp:

First I saw this amp and I didn't really thought it could deliver the sound I needed, but man did it surprise me! it's freakin loud, the clean channel is crystal-like and the distortion is crushing. I recommend it with the turbo distortion boss pedal or the blues driver, they rock the hell out of me together! Also the effects are very nice, all sound really great, especially the chorus and the delay. Really awesome amp for those short of cash

Great Amp!

By Chris

from Rhode Island

Comments about Marshall MG250DFX Stereo Combo Amp:

This is simply a great amp. The fan is not very loud if you put the volume up, if you have a decent guitar. Some guitars may make the fan get louder. My old Epiphone Les Paul made the fan turn so loud. But now I got a Gibson Les Paul and the fan is quiet. This amp has so many special effects also! Pete Townshend used this same amp! I am a music teacher and I also gig and this thing can SCREAM! This is great for all kinds of music. If you have effect pedals with this, you literally play anything. There is also a foot pedal that includes that lets your change channels and turn on and off your special effects. I highly recommend this to anyone!

Beatiful!

By Kyle C

from midlothian, Ill

Comments about Marshall MG250DFX Stereo Combo Amp:

This amp is great. I love it. the sound effects arnt the best but i dont really use them to much and they are what they are. There is enough gain for me too. alot of people complain about the gain but if you dont like it go get a distortion pedal. I play metal but this baby is good for anyone from country to scremo. Its loud too. i still havent been able to turn it up all theway sadly because of noise issues at home but i definately suggest geting it. it packs a punch for the price and size

    Comments about Marshall MG250DFX Stereo Combo Amp:

    Put simply, this amp is incredible. I think most people buy a Marshall for that signature overdrive, but this thing's clean sound is possibly just as impressive as it's OD. Like a lot of the other reviewers have said, I don't use a lot of the built in effects, because any of the effects I need I have in pedal form. I do use the chorus though, and- like the other effects- it holds it's ground.

    But just like any other Marshall, this thing's overdrive is amazing. It's got all the options to sound like any of the famous brand users of the past. I play a lot of thrash metal, but I also enjoy kicking back into a blues tone, which this thing is amazing for. Especially if you add a tube screamer and some reverb.

    Great beginner amp

    By Zoso420

    from Woodstock,NY

    Comments about Marshall MG250DFX Stereo Combo Amp:

    I got this amp last christmas and it has a great tone. I does not have much effect options but if you buy some good pedals then this amp will sound awesome. Try it out for yourself. It is an awesome amp that wont let you down in gigs...but it is not really a concert amp.

    By Rocker17

    from Ontario, Canada

    Comments about Marshall MG250DFX Stereo Combo Amp:

    This amp is hooked up with 2x12'custom speakers, packed with 250 watts. Marshall distortion to its max, Clean channell with gain control along with equilizer options, Overdrive channell with Gain control with equilizer (bass, contour, treble) and volume, Comes with a digital FX channel (Preset/adjust, FX level,) as well as an FDD. I was very impressed with how many options I had with the MG250DFX, it fits all the music styles I play (Classic Rock, Metal, Rock,). The only thing I didn't like was alittle bit of buzz, but that might just be where I am. I strongly reccomend this amp for a gig or just pratice.

    Great Amp Period

    By Pole

    from Gary, IN

    Comments about Marshall MG250DFX Stereo Combo Amp:

    Some say that this amp is great fro beginners and this is true. But not only is it good for beginners but good for anyone looking for an amp with a great clean and overdrive channel. Great for anyone wanting to play old 60s and 70s style with great clean sounds. Beatles, Rolling Stones, etc... The overdrive also allows you to play Zeppelin, Sabbath, etc... Plus it is solid state, while getting out great sounds you won't have to replace tubes.

    Marshall Tone in a solid State Amp!

    By 1995*Strat

    from Cleveland, OH

    Comments about Marshall MG250DFX Stereo Combo Amp:

    This 2-channel 50-watt stereo 2 x 12 Celestion solid state amp is a great value in an amp that can be used to play out. The clean sounds are good but the distortion on this is its claim to fame. The heavy thick Marshall distortion is classic and the contour knob lets you tweak the sounds from crunch to hi gain and everything in between. This amp is very loud. This amp can be used to practice as well but is sounds better at higher volumes. I have read reviews on the Internet claiming that this amp has a noisy fan. I have not found that problem at all. This is a well-built amp. If you are looking for a great sounding amp to play out with I would suggest giving this amp a test drive. After all it's a Marshall!

    Marshall tone for cheap!

    By awfrick

    from St.louis, MO

    Comments about Marshall MG250DFX Stereo Combo Amp:

    The Marshall MGDFX250 is a studio quality amp that you can get for under $500. It works great for any style of music, and believe it or not, the built-in DFX effects really get close to the real thing. The signature Marshall tone shines through every sound in this amp, my only beef is that you can't toggle the reverb on the footswitch. Great price and even better amp.

    This small combo amp lets out A LOT of noise. It has that fat distortion sound that got Marshall famous. If you are looking for great sounds that are cheap, buy this.

    Great British ROAR !!

    By Macman

    from Austin, TX

    Comments about Marshall MG250DFX Stereo Combo Amp:

    This is a superb amp. I have owned it for 2 years. I gig with it and can play it at fairly low volume at home also. I have never once had any issues with the fan as some users have. The built in effects are a very nice addition. I mainly like this amp for the great crunch and Marshall roar in the distortion channel. Plus it looks cool on stage to have a Marshall Amp. I plug my Fender strat and Les Paul into this and they both sound great through it. This amp is built nicely and is not too heavy to lug around. I just could not justify paying over $1000 for a top of the class Marshall amp. As a gigging and recording amateur this suits me to the ground. I do not play much metal but with a distortion pedal up front this could get you into the metal territory. For Classic rock and blues this amp simply rules.
