yoTrakkz's review"needs more power"

Marshall MG2FX
Having just reviewed a really bad portable amp, I feel compelled to give kudos to a product that figured it out. The Marshall MG2FX is a portable guitar amp. It is powered by 6 AA batteries, or the optional AC adapter. There is one 1/4" input and a pre-amp out jack, which can be useful in some recording and stage sessions (by running the pre-amp out signal to the PA, or to a DAW via the console. There is a knob for volume only, but trust me, the tone is solid. The amp has 5 watts of power.


This is simply used for practicing for the vast majority of its users. In this case, the amp is one of the easiest ones to use that I've seen. The manual is pretty unnecessary overall. You can attach a guitar strap to it to carry it around your neck, which is really sweet if you are carrying your guitar in your hand and want a free hand. The pre-amp out jack is cool, I don't use it much but I know that some people have gotten great studio sounds with it. I think that's


Don't look at my review and assume this thing sounds amazing. It doesn't. It's just that for a portable five watt amp, you can really not do better. I'm convinced to this day that there isn't a better sounding amp that you can wear around your neck. The volume knob will adjust gain to a necessary degree. I like all the sounds equally. This is a practice amp that will actually make you sound good when you practice, which is a surprising rarity once you reach a certain level of playing. There really is no control of the EQ, so asking about the frequency curve is somewhat difficult to answer. I would say that they are pretty neutral in that they don't ever favor one end of the spectrum over the other.


I don't really have much to say other than this is a pretty cool device. I'd say that overall, this is worth it for whoever would benefit from having a quiet amplifier that's easy to carry around. The sound is better than anything you'll find in amps this size, and even a few sizes bigger to be honest. Highly recommended.

iamqman's review"Nice little amp"

Marshall MG2FX
If you are a Marshall nut like myself and you are in need or a good sounding practice amp then this might be the amp for you. This is a low watt headphone featured and MP3/CD player featured mini combo amp from Marshall. It has an input for an AUX if you want to play some of your favorite music into your amplifier and jam along. This is an amp that has 10 different voicings to choose from. Within those 10 voicings you have every type of Marshall tone from plexi to the modern stuff.


Marshall MG2FX 2W Guitar Combo Amp Features:

2 watt output
Speaker 1 x 6-1/2"
Channels: 10 voices
Digital effects
Digital reverb
Internal FOD
Mp3/Line In
Dimensions: 10-1/4"H x 10-3/8"W x 6-7/8"


This amp is extremely easy to use. The amp has 10 voicings and within that you can probably find any Marshall tone that you are looking for. It actually has a nice AC/DC type tone as well as a more modern type tone. The distortion is very MArshall from plexi to modern Jcm800 modded amps It is very useful when dialing in the right voicing for your tone.

I like this amp with a humbucking style guitar such as a Gibson Les Paul or a SuperStrat. It like having that double coil pickup with the thick chewy distortion this amp can get. There is basically every Marshall tone in this amp. Finding it is not a hard job to do.


You can pick these little combo practice amps up fro right at around $139. That i a great deal for this little combo. With the range of tonal possibilities the amp can see just about any style of guitar tones that you want.

dabronico's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Amp travel very typical marshall"

Marshall MG2FX
Modeling amp 2 Watts.
10 analog modes: 1 clean, 3 Crunch, 3 saturation, 3 large overdrives in each section giving a preference to the treble, mid and bass.
5 effects a chorus potentiometer, flanger, phaser and then separate reverb and delay.
2 Come: Guitar and ESA in + mp3
1 headphone output that mutes the speaker.
1 handle.
operates with 6 large batteries or AC power adapter with.
Tuner that takes into account each string and fat to a small indicator displays the note you play.
4 potentiometers, one button and one indicator. Each potentiometer 2 functions with accéssible secondary function by pressing the small button: we have: type of amp gain, effect, volume, and simultaneously pressing the small button bass, treble, reverb and delay.
Ideal for play in without disturbing either.


The setup is relatively simple and the manual is not necessarily useful.


I play an Ibanez ARC 100. Cramberries I play, via AC DC, Nirvana, Metalica.
It should be pretty good, but does not seek to reproduce the sounds of your favorite bands so if they do not play on Marshall. Indeed, unlike the Roland micro cube or VOX, it has a very distinctive Marshall sound. The amp models are available as a Marshall. I was once a big Vavelsate 65R and playing on the contour and gain found quite accurately the sounds that can offer this little Marshall.
So for me, this proposed 70eeuros Sale up to 119 euros off balance and promo little amp is only for hardcore sound marshall. If you want the typical VOX, Mesa booggie or fender this amp is not for you, head to the Roland (Vox is still too Typed VOX).
A large default at this little amp is its MP3 input. In fact, my iPhone plugged into it, the sound is bad and if you start to play guitar at the same time, it becomes downright Cradaingue.


I bought this amp to get back to the guitar, it was really cheap (do not look at 45 euros it therefore more at this price point, it was a mega promotion of destokage)
I have now sold as the proposed sound did not suit me.
I recommend it to all fans of Marshall, and advises others to go their way.
I tried Roland, VOX and Marshall and Yamaha. I recommend widely Roland or Yamaha which afford. VOX and Marshall for the tiny amp, too typed.

goldorock's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" very powerful and very good amp"

Marshall MG2FX
2w transistors (very powerful)
if you want to play low volume should not exceed 1/2 otherwise it much power a tube amp
-10 Types of gain / crunch / overdrive
there is a chorus, flanger, phaser and reverb / delay
Jack mp3/line
Headphones jack
it's perfect on paper


it is easy to sound good
Button-1: one rule clear sound
the crunch
overdrive and low
9-10 in all it's sounds, but some are very similar
it's not night and day
2-button: you set the gain and treble
Button-3 level reverb + chorus, flanger, phaser and it can adjust the speed of each effect
4-button: volume of time
tap tempo for the delay: very good


then the crunh sounds are good but that's not his lamp
it comes close
>>> This amp delivers transistors sounds unlike Vox and Roland
but it is not exceptional either I find
sounds are better than those of the bcp micro cube sounds Marshall
da5 vox sounds are better in crunch (+ Realistic)
amp Marshall has a big win and can give feedback: good
the effects are good (especially if clean sounds, we hear a little less I think)
favorite preset: 7 for a little bluesy / rock
can not adjust the media


One of the best small amp for Marshall sounds
but not for metal sounds or crunch
Digital Effects
-Tap tempo for this Dlay when other brands have not been
I was expecting + + realistic and differentiated from each other but sound is still good
-This amp is really a bit too powerful for home
must play at very low volume
