This is the 100 watt amp in this series. They have wattage amp that range from all over the map for these amps. This one ha basically the same features and tone as the others but just in a 100 watt version. They produce a usable tone and nice jamming type practice amp for someone needing something with built in effects.

UTILIZATION

Reverb & FX
The MG100FX amplifier provides three simultaneous effects, Reverb, Delay and one of three Modulation effects (Chorus, Phaser, or Flanger).

Tap Tempo
Use tap tempo to set your delay times as easily as tapping your foot. Tap Tempo switch is used for the Delay effect only.

MP3/Line In
Jam along to your favorite bands or personal recordings by connecting to your MP3 or CD player to this convenient 1/8 inch input jack.

Headphones & Line Out
The Headphone/Line out provides speaker emulation, so you can hear your guitar like its being blasted through powerful speakers or record direct to a source without using a microphone.

Damping
Make it sound like your using 2 completely different amplifiers. When Damping is Off the power amp response resembles the feel of a classic power amp with emphasized middle and limited bass and treble. Switching Damping On will boost the speaker resonances both in the bass and high frequency ranges.

FX Loop
The FX Return socket on the rear panel is used to connect the your favorite external effects pedals or processor. The FX loop is series and set at instrument level so both guitar FX or professional units can be connected.

SOUNDS

This is a good practice amp and that is about it. It is beyond me why you would need 100 watts of solid state tone, but hey whatever works for them. Don't try to go out and gig with this amp though because the sound man will laugh you right off the stage. Use a good Gibson Les Paul with this amp or another guitar with a humbucker style pickup in it. You need that extra coil to try and tame some of the harsh frequencies inherent to this amp.

OVERALL OPINION

These amps come in new right at around $550, which is a bit high for me. This is not a tube amp and does not have the fell what so ever of a real tube valve amp. You can find other amps used and new with tubes for less than this. Start with Blackstar and you will get a solid sounding tube amp. You won't get the effects but who cares. It is a much better performing amplifier.
