« The best of this series »

Publié le 06/22/11 à 16:33
This is about the same amp as the Marshall MG30FX and the others. This one has a unique feature called the FDD, which stands for Frequency Dependent Damping. This basically emulates the connection between a power tube amp and a speaker cabinet. This is a spectacular feature to have and makes this amp the best of the 30 watt MG series solid state amps from Marshall.

Features:

Twin footswitchable channels - Clean and Overdrive
Independent tone controls for Bass amd Treble on each channel
Contour Control for dramatic mid sweep and "scooping"
Emulated Line Out jack and Headphone jack
CD input which allows you to play along to your favorite discs
Built-in Digital Effects - Reverb, Chorus, Flange, and Delay
10 in. custom-voiced speaker

SOUNDS

If you must pick up one of the solid state MG amps from Marshall make sure you get the FDD switch on there. 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.

The tone from this amp isn't that bad for being a solid state amp. 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 over drive channel is excellent for modern rock and will sound good with any guitar used with humbucker pickup.

OVERALL OPINION

Unfortunately 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.

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.
