I bought this amp about 3 hours ago. I'm just getting back into playing after more than 30 years. I did alot of research and tried a few amps before deciding on this one. For my purposes, basically playing for fun in my home, it's great. It has quite a bit of power, extra features that were important to me such as the MP3 and headphone inputs, and the special effects sound terrific. The price tag sealed the deal for me. I bought a Gibson Les Paul Studio too and the two pieces of equipment sound really great together. If you're like me and want something loud but not too loud and are looking for those cool special effects in equipment with a respected name, I highly recommend this amp.

I loved this thing for like a year, maybe two, but I eventually got to where I didn't like the effects, and the clean tone is not acoustic-y enough for me. Besides, with a pedal, it really stinks. I have two (both Boss: Mt-2 & DS-1) and neither sounds good. They only work on a clean tone or you get lots of noise. they sounded better through my little Peavey and the amp I usually use nowadays, a Kustom KBA80 Mosfet Bass amp. This amp does have a pretty good channel though, the OD2. It's good without a pedal and it sounds cool cranked, but not as cool as a cranked stack. Also, my master volume knob only works if I set it at like 3:00, and doesn't at 4-4:30. It's been that way for a year now. And The nuts are plastic. The one for the input jack stripped for no apparent reason while I was playing and the jack fell inside the amp. I had to take off the back and super-glue the stupid thing to the case. Anyway, It's good if your just starting to learn guitar, like I was when I bought it. It's not outrageously expensive. I do like the reverb too. The chorus sounds okay with reverb. Although reverb gives me a headache if I use it too much. I don't know why, but it does. I hate the phaser. I do like the flanger sometimes. Anyway, if I were you I'd get something else. Unless you like it, in which case I say go for it. Just don't expect your pedals to sound good through it.

Not the greatest $200 amp...

By Richard Chanes

from Naperville, IL

Comments about Marshall MG4 Series MG30FX 30W 1x10 Guitar Combo Amp Restock:

First off, I would like to say that this amp can recreate that warm sound that classic Marshall amps create. However, that's pretty much the only sound you can get out of it. It doesn't really have a whole lot of gain, so you really can't play much of anything that requires high gain. Also, the tone doesn't have much of a crunch to it, no matter what kind of guitar you use. If you really want high gain, I would suggest buying a distortion pedal, like a Boss DS-1. Another major issue with it is that it was built very poorly. Within the first week of having it, the gain knob stopped working. Also, whenever the volume is 3/4 of the way up, the signal randomly cuts off. So overall, it can create a warm sound, but there isn't much gain, the tone has no crunch, and it is not built very well. I would recommend a Line 6 more than this amp.

great for the price

Comments about Marshall MG4 Series MG30FX 30W 1x10 Guitar Combo Amp Restock:

This marshall was definately a step up in my opinion, for such a small amp, it had a lot of output and tone to it, i remember the day i first got it. i only have one complaint, the plastic input broke one day, well, not actually broke, but it slipped because of the few threads that held it in place, if you accidentally take your cable out of the amp wrong, you will make the nut slip, causing the input to fall inside the amp. meaning you will have to take the amp apart. usually things like these can be replaced with a metal, better input that wont break or slip.

Great amp!

By Gary Shipley

Comments about Marshall MG4 Series MG30FX 30W 1x10 Guitar Combo Amp Restock:

I'm getting back into music after a 20 year break and needed something to practice and record with. The Marshall 30 watt is exactly what I needed. Easy to carry around,more than enough volume for recording, and the built in effects are a nice added feature! Not to mention the ability to plug in an MP3 device and use headphones for quiet practice if needed. The silver looks much better in person than I expected and it seems to be a very durable amp. I'd also like to add, the delivery was pretty quick as well.

Very disappointing, considering the Marshall name is attached to it

Wow, where do I begin with the list of problems this amp has? It was a Christmas gift from a girlfriend in my case, but if you are thinking of picking this up, please save your money.

First off, the nut on the input was so loose I eventually had to super glue the thing on, in order to keep it from coming off.

Secondly, if you are jamming on stage with other musicians, don't bring this amp -- it has little to no power, unless you're playing through a pedal board or some other mechanism that gives it more push. Otherwise, you're screwed.

I'd say it's only good as a lightweight practice amp, at best. It you're looking for anything more, despite the Marshall name, forget about it. If you want something with power, save your money and invest it in something that will give more bang for the buck.

It is a good deal

By jerry yoshida

Comments about Marshall MG4 Series MG30FX 30W 1x10 Guitar Combo Amp Restock:

It fits great for what I use it for. I have other amps with more power and more tone, so I didn't expect it to sound like a Marshall stack costing thousands of bucks. It gets a great sound with the my guitars plugged straight in at low volume or turned all the way up ( which I sometimes do ). I don't bother with the clean channel, it's too hard to get that 10" speaker to sound decent. I used a Super Reverb for yrs while I was an active musician, so I have learned how to tame 10" speakers down and get a warm tone. Not that this amp can do that. I recomend the foot controller so you can program it and use the buttons instead of constantly having to mess with the settings. It took awhile to set it the way I like, but now I have 4 settings I can use at the touch of a button. The tone from this amp is better than some amps I've used in the stores costing 3 times as much .
The effects are useless. You don't have enough control over them such as level , mix and speed .I don't use them. I have pedals and other amps for that. It gets good volume for what I use it for, I wouldn't consider taking it to jam with a full band.
The quality is OK for what they build today . I own vintage Fenders from the 60's, so I'm spoiled. The materials they use today to build amps is flimsy, you have to treat them like divas. The old amps could take a beating, and they have. This amp is only for mellow practicing, I have others to turn up with, so it stays in the room. If it had to be hauled around, I'm sure the cab would not last. The plastic parts would break for sure too .
I got this amp for a great price, so I think it was a great value. I haven't seen another name brand like Marshall with a 10" speaker and 30 watts for that price. I didn't know what to expect but was pleased with what I got for the money I paid. I also bought the foot control pedal, I think it added a lot of value to this amp, 4 programable presets.

Good Starter Amp

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Marshall MG4 Series MG30FX 30W 1x10 Guitar Combo Amp Restock:

This is the second amp i bought after a berringer solid state. The thought of having multiple channels is great, but your only going to use one most of the time (especially if u have a distortion pedal. I recommend the metal muff w/ top boost). The amp is great, but it just doesn't give you that warmth of a tube amp. I wish that they could have simulated a tube amp in one of the channels. I bought it from guitar center and got it REALLY cheap b/c it was a display plus it was on sale PLUS i had coupons.

Comments about Marshall MG4 Series MG30FX 30W 1x10 Guitar Combo Amp Restock:

Wanted/expected Marshall sound,wasn't concerned with effects. This unit is weak as water. I have aFender 25r(solid state) that literally blows it away.I mean blows it frggkin away. NO FRIGGIN COMPARISON. NONE. Will try to use for acoustic work as my 10 trial is over as was working and could not ship out in that time period. What a let down. With all gain,vol,mstr on10 it is weak as water. pathtic. don't, I repeat,DON'T waste your money.

Great Amp, Great Sound

By Rutbuster1

from Alabama

Comments about Marshall MG4 Series MG30FX 30W 1x10 Guitar Combo Amp Restock:

I play guitar as a hobby and have a Peavey amp that just couldn't get the sound I wanted even with effect pedals. If you want a good 80's-90's heavy metal sound, then this is the amp. With the foot controller you can store the different stored sound you want, hit the button and you have it. I play at the house so the 30 watt is more than enough volume. I don't need whopping volume so this amp is perfect for me. However the maximum volume should be around 7 or 8. Any volume higher than that has a little roughness to it. This is a GREAT little amp and it doesn't bust your bank account. I've had the amp 5+ months and play it for about two hours a day and have had NO PROBLEMS with it whatsoever. For the money, you get the awesome Marshall sound and quality. I use no effect pedals with this amp and have no problem getting the sounds I want. I don't know why other people claim they can't get the proper sound, maybe they don't know how to adjust the amp to their liking or maybe they're trying to use effect pedals with it. I had to play with it a bit and figure it out but once I did I was in love with it. I recommend it to anyone whom wants an awesome amp that doesn't put you in debt. I highly recommend getting the foot switch too.

good, but watch the overdrive

By minibeef5228

from Nesconset,NY

Comments about Marshall MG4 Series MG30FX 30W 1x10 Guitar Combo Amp Restock:

This amp was pretty good and pretty much worth the money, but if you're looking for an amp with good distortion, make sure you have a distortion pedal with it, because the amp itself won�ۡ���t cut it. Both overdrive channels are pretty weak, and the overdrive 2 setting has a very dirty sound to it that isn�ۡ���t pretty. The clean setting is good, and crunch is pretty much about overdrive 1, which isn�ۡ���t bad, but then again, won't cut it. The chorus, flanger, phaser, and delay are cool to have, and make a significant difference to each sound, especially flanger and phaser. The amp itself is not too heavy, and I feel that its definitely loud enough. i recommend using this with a boss ds1 distortion pedal, since that is what I use, and it gives a good led zeppelin sound, if that�ۡ���s what you�ۡ���re looking and doesn�ۡ���t become too dirty. So just watch the overdrive because you�ۡ���re going to need more than that, and look for good distortion pedals with it. Also, the looks are nice in the silver, and it is still cool to look at even after a few months with it.
