Marshall MG30FX Guitar Combo Amplifier (30 Watts, 1x10 in.)

No longer available at zZounds
The Marshall MG30FX is a compact amp with great Marshall tone. With onboard digital effects, the Marshall MG30FX will also help you expand your sound.

Marshall's exclusive, groundbreaking FDD circuitry plus 30 watts of power for killer tones. The MG30FX includes a 10 inch speaker, four switchable channels, and a 3-band EQ that lets you shape your tone. FDD (Frequency Dependent Damping) circuitry gives the MG4 Series the unbelievable depth of sound and unique feel of their legendary, all-tube amps. It does this by emulating the way an all-tube power amp interacts with the speaker(s) it is driving. Plus the easy to use panel controls include gain, followed by a three-band EQ, volume and Master Volume.

On the MG30FX guitar amp combo, the 4 channels are Clean, Crunch, OD1 and OD2. Switching seamlessly between channels is easy with the push button controls. Plus the amp features two modes: Preset and Manual. Preset mode stores the position of all the controls except the master volume while the manual mode is the actual physical position of the controls. Settings for each channel can be customized and saved for instant recall.

The MG30FX provides two simultaneous effects, Reverb and one of these four digital effects (Chorus, Phaser, Flanger or Delay). The Delay can be manually set using the front panel Tap button.

Recording or Practice
The combination line out/headphone out features speaker cabinet emulation, giving you full Marshall sound when recording or practicing through headphones. A line input allows you to play along with MP3 and CD players. The optional Stompware footswitch provides seamless transitioning from sound read more to sound and tap tempo, plus a built-in tuner with LCD display. read less

Never had a Marshall but this one was affordable and after playing it I'll be buying Marshall. Great sound. You get thundering distortion.
I've play on Peavey and Crate and as far as sound this beats them both especially the distortion is heavy and has alot of punch. Work the effects in and get hundreds of sound.
All the features you want for all types of music. Didn't get a footswitch but ordered one off zZounds for $29.99.
Ease of Use
Simple to use.
Haven't had it long but seems to be well built.
Compared to similar amps with the same features, I'd take this for the sound alone. It's my first Marshall but won't be my last.
