Marshall MG 30DFX Reviews
The big advantage over a tube amp is you do not have to crank the volume up on this amp to get the tone you want. To take full advantage of this amp you need to get one of the FBV foot pedals, Also, there is only 1 input jack and 1 input channel and you cannot plug in an extra speaker cabinet, either. The headphone jack doubles as a DI output f... [read more on Audiofanzine]yoTrakkz rated this unit on 2011-11-09.
All in all I think the Marshall MG Series amps are not a wise investment. There are many, many better options for a 30w practice amp with effects like the Peavey Vypyr 30 or the Line 6 Spider IV 30. This amp doesn't sound good, the controls really don't do much to help that, and given Marshall's questionable reliability as of late, I wouldn't ex...

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.

Overall, I would recommend spending t... [read more on Audiofanzine]denied rated this unit on 2011-04-29.
Overall, I have to say that even if you are just looking for a practice amp to use in your bedroom there are still MUCH better amps out there. The Vox Valvetronix's are good for clean stuff and lower gain rock, and the Roland Cubes are decent for higher-gain rock and metal. I know I sound like I have nothing positive to say about this amp at all... [read more on Audiofanzine]Stormleader rated this unit on 2011-03-22.
The Marshall MG30DFX is a great amp for a beginning guitar player who wants something better than a simple speaker. This will give you options to mess around with and to get yourself started with. The amp is even fine for more experienced players who want a practice amp that's a bit more in depth. Personally I wouldn't use this for recording,...

This amp kicks ass and blows any other amp in this price range out of the water. [read more on Audiofanzine]Grunge rock kicks ass rated this unit on 2004-11-24.
