    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.

    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

    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!

    Freakin awesome!

    By Hector

    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

    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.

    Good amp

    By Chris

    Comments about Marshall MG250DFX Stereo Combo Amp:

    Very high quality amp. It has a loud clean sound, especially with just a little chorus on it. The one thing was that when I opened the box the black skin was ripped on the side and a corner was crushed, and Guitar Center wouldn't give me a discount on something else and said it would take 2-3 weeks to get a new amp in. Bottom line is great amp, but bad service.

    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!

    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

    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.

    The fan is no louder than ...

    By Cody

    from Washington

    Comments about Marshall MG250DFX Stereo Combo Amp:

    The fan is no louder than that of my computer, and if you're playing quiet enough to hear it you may as well be unplugged. I chose this over the fender 212R/212DSP mainly because of the volume control. It's very smooth and proportionate whereas the fender's was no sound straight to loud. Decent sound, not really into amp effects but the reverb sounds decent and the dfx are good for coming free.
