chotabacha's review"Best value for money guitar amp"

Marshall MG50FX [2009-2011]
This is transistor amp that sounds very much like tube amp. It is very power and is good for taking to gigs in beer gardens and outside parties and small concerts. The controls are many and good and all range that is normal. You have treble, bass, mid and a very smoothly reverberazion. Delay and choruz and flanger and phazer are very good also. Best feature is four channels with nice switch by foot. Perfekt !!!

UTILIZATION

Sound is best for rock and for many many types. The manual is not too good. Sound is very easy if you have experience.

SOUNDS

My band buy this amp because we have Vox AC30 and that is too big and much heavy and when we knock in van tubes get broked. So leave Vox in Studio and travel with Marshall. Guitars are Lag and Hagstrom. Our music is heavy metal like Anthrax and Opus.

OVERALL OPINION

Love it all. Very nice and will buy again if somebody steals.

Anonymous 's review"Awesome amp with surprisingly good tone"

Marshall MG50FX [2009-2011]
This is a solid state amp with crystal cleans and a metal tone to die for. Its a very powerful 50W that would make it break windows in your neighbours house. The amp is fully featured and includes 4 channels, a separate delay and reverb.

UTILIZATION

Every amp takes some getting used to. It took me five minutes to dial in some serious hard core metal riffage tones. The inclusion of the footswitch is a heaven sent.

SOUNDS

All have an ability to sound bad and some can sound really good. The MG50FX can sound really really awesome and can easily hold its own against tube amps in the same price range. In fact compared to say a VOX AC4TV or a Blackheart it sound better and has a bigger range of sounds.

OVERALL OPINION

I cannot fault this amp at this price point. I am an avid buyer of gear and cant walk past a really nice bit of gear without lusting after it and ultimately buying it. I am always in my local guitar store trying things out. I tried and bought lots of stuff and have many amps at home including quite a few tube amps. This Marshall certainly has a place in my collection and gets played regularly. I would certainly recommend it to anyone.

iamqman's review"Not very great"

Marshall MG50FX [2009-2011]
This is Marshall attempt at the introductory amps for the beginner or low budget guitar players.You get 50 watts of power and a front end digital processor. Along with the reverb in the the amp it has several other effects such as Chorus, Phaser, Flanger, Delay. For the quiet player it has a headphone input so if you desire to play at home quietly or in your office this is a great feature.

SOUNDS

The tone from this amp isn't that bad for being a solid state amp. It has 4 channels and all are very usable in the basic functions. 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

At the new price of about $379 it 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.
