« Marshall MG Series: G30RCD »

Published on 01/24/03 at 15:00
Purchased from Bailey Brothers Music in Birmingham, AL after a long, determined search for a decently priced, but good quality practice amp. Paid $140 for a slightly dinged, but new floor model. I like to play rock and blues on my Fender Nashville Telecaster and on my modified (Tex-Mex pickups) Fender Powerhouse Stratocaster. I wanted an smallish amp with either a classic Fender or Marshall sound.

Smooth as Formica clean channel, classic Marshall distotion (Albeit non-valve in quality). Adequate volume for home practice or small room gigs without a skin banging drummer present. You could spend a fortune on a solid state amp with jillions of cab models and effects, but the amplification will not be a bit better than what you get with the Marshall G30RCD. The CD input and headphone jack are also nice features for practice sessions and the foot switch input is nice to have.

It seems that 30-Watts could be a bit louder, but this is one of the inherent limitations of all solid state amps. Perhaps a 12-inch speaker might be a nice touch to enhance the audio dynamics of this unit.

This cabinet part of this amp is solidly built and ready for the road. The switches and pots have a high quality feel to them. However, the black vinyl covering is a bit thin and subject to tearing upon contact with sharp edged surfaces.

This is an outstanding practice amp or beginners amp. You can play fine sounding blues, rock, R&B, or pop tunes through this baby with no problem. Very nice unit for either rhythym or lead style playing.
