The Marshall MG30DFX Combo amp is great. It contains many built in effects and it packs a powerful punch. The switch makes it easy to switch back from a clean guitar sound to a distorted one. Unlike the lower combo amp models, the clean drive has its own volume, treble, and bass dials, and the distortion drive has its own, treble, bass, contour, gain, and volume dials. The only thing I'm bumming about this amp is that it didn't come with a footswitch, but that problem can be solved simply, by buying one. This amp is great for practicing and is loud enough for small gigs. I highly recomend this amp.

I owned this amp for about a year. It was pretty much my first amp and at first I thought it sounded good. After a got a little better I reallized this amp could not keep up with me. If all, I repeat ALL you're going to play is blues than this is amp is ok. But the sound is WAY TOO MUDDY for anything else. I even tried using pedals, no dice. I think that for the price, a line 6 is a much better way to go.

Great amp for the beginner and beyond

By Gomez

from Massachusetts

I bought my Marshall MG30DFX a couple of months ago, and was instantly impressed with the quality and texture of the sound. No matter what kind of guitar you play on it (I personally play with a Peavey T-60 most of the time), this amp will satisfy you, no matter what kind of music you play. I personally play mostly clean classic rock, which I love to play on the clean channel, but I also enjoy switching over to the overdrive channel and getting that dirty, heavy sound. In the overdrive channel, there are plenty of options to add depth to you sound, whether using the gain to add distortion or the contour to either get the extremes, both treble and bass, or get a lot of mid range noise. One complaint I do have with the overdrive channel is that the sound is either a little too clean or a little too dirty, it can be very hard to find a middle ground. The digital effects are of a high quality, and extremely easy to use, with two knobs, one controlling which of the four effects (reverb, delay, chorus, and flange) are being used, and to what extent, and the other knob controlling how loud the FX are compared to the master volume. I loved the effects and found them to be of a very high quality, but wished I could use more than one at the same time. But hey, you're not paying a heck of a lot for the amp, so take what great quality you get! And that brings me to the price, which was cheap for an amp of this quality. It brings Marshall sound to a small package, and would be an excellent first amp for a beginning guitarist, but could also be a suitable practice amp for a guitarist of any level!

marshall rocks

By jackson user

from usa, ca

This amp is great for room practice i dont recommend it for band practice or gigs if you want it for gigs buy a higher wattage one, i actually returned a line 6 spider to get this amp it sounds way brighter and cleaner in the clean channell the overdrive channell is just what it is overdrive so if you want this for metal you better have a distortion petal and run it through the clean channell it sounds awsome, i use a digitech metal master with this amp and omg i can get the most insane metal distortion ever. My next amp will be a marshall but bigger for gigs, and i will leave this one for room practice. The effects are really good i like the reverb and the delay sounds great i use it on the lowest delay setting with the digitech metal master pedal and i can get the dimebag lead sound, its the best. Get it you wont be disapointed. I use a Jackson Performer guitar.

I love the sound

By GClark

from St. Paul, MN

A lot of the reviews here talk about it's distortion being off, but I love the sound this amp has. If you're going for something real chunky, like the Black Keys or The White Stripes, the distortion sounds great. It does deaden the treble a little bit, but the thick crunch is more than worth it. The effects sound pretty good too, even if they're a little ridiculous.

Aiming!

By Fender-Man 13

from Chicago, Il

This amp is aiming. It's my first amp and I love it. It 's perfect if you have an okay band like me. Because the drummer may not totally be in tune and the louder you get he tries to hit harder and this is loud enough where you can just crank it up and he'll be in perfect tune. This amp rocks heaby. I love it.

Nice little amp

By stevoc

from CA

I've had this amp for about four months and must say it's a nice amp. I use it to play around in my house alone. The sound is great. I think it has a little less power than my older gorilla amp that was 15 watts output wise, but it does pretty good. My only gripe is that the effects can be used only one at a time. I like reverb on all the time and cannot use the chorus or flange simultaneously with it. Otherwise, this is a solid and cranking little amp. Also, the FDD option improves the sound of the amp by a ton. I recommend it.

By EpiphoneLesPaulStudio777

from Evansville, IN

This amp is amazing so dang LOUD you wont even believe its only 30 watts. A lot a people keep saying that this amp sucks, but its all just personal preference on sound. I tried this today at a music store and plan on buying one for myself.

Average Amp

By FreddieStrat

from Houston, TX

I owned this amp and played with my Strat with it. It was ok, it was my first amp. But after testing a Fender Blues Jr I quickly traded it in. It's fair, but if you can afford a Fender Tube amp check into that first.

pretty good

By Kimberly

from kansas

This amp works pretty well for the most part. Sometimes the distortion doesn't sound really amazing. It is sweet how there are features like delay and chorus...it makes the amp more awesome.

Marshall - you get what you pay for

By cobhc23

from Janesville/Wi

This amp is great for home practicing or small gigs. I have had this amp for a couple of years and no problems have occured with it so far. The distortion channel does not hum or crackle with it turned up loud. The clean setting is also very good. I would recommend it as a beginers amp and for those who are more advanced. It has a very wide range of playing ability for any kind of music you play.

Starting out, or already pro, it's all right here

By Starkid5150

from Allen, TX

The Marshall MG30DFX Combo is by far one of the best practice amps I've had. I play rock music on a Kramer Strat Clone, and this amp has served me well in the many hours spent practicing. The Clean channel sounds exactly like your playing an accoustic, and can sometimes sound even better with the different effects built into the amp. It seems effortless changing from one effect to the other, and getting the right amount you need is just as easy. I prefer a tiny bit of delay on the overdrive channel. This has the best overdrive I've heard straight from an amp, for playing metal and rock guitar. If you're looking for an amp that has everything you need to practice and sound like you're playing live, the Marshall MG30DFX Combo amp is all you need.

Great Amp!

By BLEEDBLACKLABEL18

from Manchester, TN

The Marshall MG30DFX Combo is great for beginners and pros. The digital effects are great. It has chorus, delay, flanger, and reverb. This amp has amazing sound for such an amazing price. Its a very powerful amp for just a 30 watt! This is a must have for practices.

Great for practicing

By Ed

from Cincinnati, OH

This is one of the best amps out there for practicing. I use an ESP KH-202 guitar and it sounds great. The clean channel is the best part of this amp. It sounds so good. The overdrive channel is not that great in my opinion. It is hard to find that sweet spot. It's always a little too muddy for my liking. The digital effects are great! Reverb, delay, chorus, and flanger. You control which effect you want with one knob and its volume with a different knob. Very user friendly. A little delay with the clean channel sounds wonderful. This is worth the money.

Perfect for Practice

By Jeff Van Slyke

from Coxsackie, NY

This loud-as-hell amp will make your practice sessions incredible. Turn up the gain and let the heavy, crunchy distortion roar as you rip up the fretboard. Or just make it clean and simple on the clean channel. If your looking for effects then you got the right amp, the digital effects kill the competition. I highly recommend you make this amp your next purchase. You wont be dissapointed

Great Amp!!

By Dnask8r46

from Baltimore, MD

One of the only amps, this size that can be used for a small gig. Incredible features, such as Reverb and Chorus, that make the already old-tube-amp-sounding Marshall twice as good! Great for Bluesy and rock music, as well as classic rock. Not so good for classical music.

The Awesome Marshall MG30DFX Combo

By Eric714

from Harrisburg, PA

The Marshall MG30DFX Combo amplifier really is a great product. I found that I could give my music alot more edge with the effects it offers that most other amps don't have. The music I play is heavy metal and it gave it just what heavy metal needs, unlike other brands of amps such as Peavey. I get more crunch with this amp, which I use along with my B.C. Rich Warlock, which is exactly what most heavy metal musicians want.

Lives up to it's Brand

By D-Man

from Minneapolis

Well, I own this amp, and I have played different Voxs, Fenders, and Ibanezs, and all I can say it that marshall is the gibson of amps. Best quality, best sound, and also, most volume for you hard rockers! my ONLY complaint is that it doesn't have as many features (auto-wah, 70's rock, things like that) as some other amps I have used, but it's 100% worth it!

Pretty Good Amp

By PunkGuitar74

from New York

I've had this amp for about a year now. It's pretty good and I use it always when my band practices. It has great distortion and even works well for heavy metal. However, it is not that loud so not the best if you're going to be playing shows. If you are just practicing though it's simply great.
