iamqman's review"Good practice amp"

Marshall MG15DFX
These MG DFX series amps one feature that separate them from the others...FDD. I will talk about it later on. This is the 15 watt model and same tone as the other watt amps. They are able to tap a good market with this amp with the price point they start at and the availability of them in the guitar stores.

FDD (Frequency Dependent Damping)


If you must pick up one of the solid state MG amps from Marshall make sure you get the FDD switch on there. The over drive channel is excellent for modern rock and will sound good with any guitar used with humbucker pickup. It really tightens the distortion up a lot and fills the tone out more. The tone becomes thicker and fatter much like a real tube amp from Marshall.

This is an all in one amp for a beginner guitar player. Any one who has spent any time with a tube amp will not go for this other than to have as a practice unit for silence or office use. The crunch channel will get you a great classic rock tone. Trying using a Gibson Les Paul or SG and dial down the gain for some good Led Zeppelin tone or Ac/Dc crunch. The tone from this amp isn't that bad for being a solid state amp.


If you are looking for a good amp that you don't have to worry about and just need for practicing or silent playing and you need that Marshall tone then this is a good amp for those purposes.

This isn't going to go on stage anywhere or be good for recording, but if you need simplicity in a practice amp then this is a great amp for that. It has a good enough tone for getting your chops down or feeling out the neck of the guitar. I would recommend this to any Marshall fan looking for a solid practice amp. this amp has been discontinued and the used market will be the only way to go to get this amp.I have seen them used on the classifieds for just over or around $100, which isn't that bad of a buy.

rasoa's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Nickel at home"

Marshall MG15DFX
Transistor amplifier with lamps simulation.
Two jack inputs, a guitar amp and a line for playback.
For the rest refer to other opinions.


The config is very simple, turn the knobs and go. The effects are correct for not just be pushed into a corner too.
The manual has not served me (I'm not a fan ...) but it seemed provided me enough to start. After that, it is better to his arms and ears alone.


I do mostly pop, pop-rock or punk kind more Green Day or Simple Plan.
I use it mainly after my ZOOM G2.1u multi-effect on the clean channel. But even without, he's doing a lot of the sound is clear, is saturated. The crunch is hard to find ...
Otherwise, works well for the guitar voice with the second input and an amplification of the microphone, ideal for mini-concerts in the largest room of your home!


I use it for 7 years, never disappointed. After this course I do not really use that at home or in small groups for leisure.
I remake that choice, because not very expensive and it was an amp not too big, not too small for home and small performances.

XxX-Metalhead-XxX's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Marshall transistor equal to themselves .."

Marshall MG15DFX
15W transistor, 4 effects, chorus, delay, reverb and flanger.


Unnecessary knobs and not need the manual to find out.


Apart from the sound that is quite clear if the OD is cold, cutting dénaturisée, I put some reverb aténuer for all that.


I used it a year and I regret having spent my money in there even if it's an amp with which I have also progressed. Used the quality / price is not bad but do not buy it new. I do not do again because this choice for the 150th there are much better (on the side of Roland and vox in particular).

polo44's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Its good but connected to revise"

Marshall MG15DFX
See above, everything has been said


The sound is relatively good when you know how to serve.


Me this amp is not for me is that a dude, the sound is good up to a quarter of the volume. After the cavern is pest.
The big problem of this amp is the output line that has a mic level output (ie very low).
Do not choose this particular amp if you want to register with the output line.


This amp is not mine, just a notice to say that the sounds are not bad but the connection is worthless.

Marshall MG15DFX
Small 15-watt Marshall amp transistor.
Two channels, clean, overdrive.
4 effects and control of the power of the effect.
volume control, gain, treble / bass / mid.
3 entries; entry scratches, cd input, headphone.
8-inch speaker.
paid € 70


Using very simple: you plug and ...
even a penguin could settle with his feet, it said.
get a good sound ... look below: p


I use this amp with an Epiphone Special II.
I admit I do love her more too sounds have been compared with my old cube 40:
the clean sound is clean, no problem, but for an amp that packs a distortion and effects ...
saturated sound is horrible when you touch two strings at the same time ...
for plug in pieces baby it's okay, but otherwise ...
what does it drool Mr. Marshall!

In short: its clear, clean, overdrive ...
one meal.


Soon I use this amp for a year.
I do not really like this amp, it has no point to be positive side ...
negative side it should be noted that horror that is the overdrive channel.
I had not tried to amp too, I started and I wanted an amp pretty quickly this one came to € 70, new.
The value for money ... there must be at € 120 in your merchants ... to start it has a good quality / price ratio, but if you've played a little, you'll see it soon runs out of steam.
If I had money, and the ear to appreciate my previous amp, I kept my 70 € for a distortion pedal ...
Do not lynchons; to start, no problem. For its clear, it is doing. but for the full, it's crap.

Jean-Philippe P.'s review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Marshall MG15DFX
Classic Combo 15W,
Channels: clean & overdrive
Rglage volume for a clean sound, and rglage volume and gain (knob 2) to overdrive.
Equatlizer bass, mdium & acute.
HP 8 "Custom
1 between Jack, a headphone from a CD & (nice to jam).
4 effects: rverbe, chorus, dlais, flanger (a single knob that way for changments!)
+ 1 knob of rglage to the intensity of the effect
Technoligie + FDD (dvelloper by Marshall) supposed to imitate the warmth of all-tube amp! (A view ....)
Go and throw a quick glance at the control panel:


Nothing is easier, there is no longer that connect the BTE and Go!
The manual is sufficient.

But to get the sound, it will not have to be too pressing! (It is nothing inquitant be a minimum of exprience)


I used it in clean, otherwise, I had a KORG AX1500G multii effect because the overdrive n'tait trs not convincing.
With SG, the clean channel is warm and not "click" it (is good for his ears)
Volume level for beginners is just enough, just to start and nothing else. For a room as the volume is sufficient. But not for one group or BPS. Pushed to 3 / 4 the power DFX is no longer the stroke and the sound quickly becomes mush. I saw one on 15W scne, well no c tro nice noise!
on the other hand level effects: ho hum, it is essentially a selling point: the effects are far from a trs pedals or a multi purpose, plus I found a super duty binding on every turn knob to change!
But hey it dfend in its range ...


For a price of 150 the beginners do not have that go to shop. But beware, it's not because it's Marshall that his rsiste all! It is good for learning the guitar electric but no more!
APRS a year of good and loyal service, I'm spar: want more power, more quality of group play ... that with a MG15DFX can not have.
But to conclude, this amp is a REFERENCE in its range and is in no way dnigrer!
