I bought this amp at Guitar Center last year for about $90. My previous Marshall amp had been stolen.

It's small and portable. The reverb function is useful.

My previous amp had also been a Marshall 15W (I remember it was called a "VT15", though I've since searched for the name and never found it), and it had sounded good whether it's just clean or with the Drive controls up. I was able to get a substantial amount of crunch by just turning it up, and my favourite way to use it became just natural distortion, especially for rhythm work. This MG15 doesn't even come close. It sounds "artificial", somewhat dead, without the dynamics and complexity of the previous amp. I'm pretty sure...…

I was able to get a substantial amount of crunch by just turning it up, and my favourite way to use it became just natural distortion, especially for rhythm work. This MG15 doesn't even come close. It sounds "artificial", somewhat dead, without the dynamics and complexity of the previous amp. I'm pretty sure the difference is that the old amp was a valve amp (it had cost at least $170 in New York), and solid state just doesn't crank it, especially at this wattage.

Typical Marshall quality -- build quality is not the problem here.

I suppose the double whammy of "solid-state technology" and the 15-watt output just means that this is not a good-sounding amp. I love Marshall amps, but this ain't a winner. If you're gonna get an amp, get a better one (the AVT series looks far more promising). I've had this MG15CDR replacement for about six months and only played it maybe 10 times -- its poor sound just doesn't cut it. I'd rather deal with an extra cable and headphones and plug into my Line 6 Pod instead.

I bought it at Planet Music for 4999sk,that's a little less than 90bucks at today's exchange rate.It was a special offer or something.It was my first amp,in fact I wanted to buy a cheap Ibanez just for practice,but when I played this baby,I knew why Marshall is a legend.

Fantastic sound,clear sound.Good sounding reverb.The overdrive isn't exactly what I need but you can never satisfy everyone.It doesn't sound crappy at all,it just isn't my style.More like some blues or rythm metal at extreme settings.It has a nice look.And it's LOUD dammit,you just need a preamp,or any kind'a effects pedal and this baby rocks.It's loud enough to play with drums.The 30watt Marshall is surely big enough...…

I'll write that below.Oh,and it hasn't got a footswitch.But I wouldn't use it anyway so I don't care.

Nice, but the typical shatter sound of the reverb strings occurs even when the amp is off and it didn't when it was new.It fell down on the ground really hard.But i can easily sit on the unit.Really sturdy.But looks weak.

Fantastic starting amp.Spend some extra $$$ and buy this thing,it's worth it!

I paid $500Au to get it in a pack with a starter Guitar but they're about $200-300 Au.


It looks and sounds quality and is great value for money. The clean is good and pure and it sounds awesome on single coils. push the OD button and be blown away. it has awesome gain and goes pretty lound for a 15 watt. You can get anything from a vintage tone, to a death metal assault of gain and volume. The reverb gives beatiful depth but isn't too good for the heavier sounds. Crank up the gain and scoop the mids and tapping and harmonics become a sinch. A great studio and practise amp. can compete with drums fairly easily. Not too great for gigging, though. its got the sound and all but it...…

Not too great for gigging, though. its got the sound and all but it lacks the volume. the FDD adds big volume and depth. It's also a closed back. extra weight , but better sound projection and depth

No footswitch jack. Could be louder. Quite weighty and big for a 15 Watt.

Great construction, i've had it for 9 months and i havent had one problem.

This is a great practise amp and i rcommend it to anyone thats looking for an affordable Marshall that still packs a punch.
