MG30CFX

Limited stock available in select stores only

Marshall's MG30CFX combo amplifier packs more useful features than you'd usually expect from a 1 x 10" 30-watt combo. It starts with pure Marshall tone, tailored to your liking with the 3-band EQ. The MG30CFX sports four programmable channels - Clean, Crunch, Overdrive 1, and Overdrive 2. Dial in your tone, then save it for easy recall later. The tone is lively and in your face, as you'd expect from a Marshall, and you can add even more pizazz with the built-in effects. You get chorus, flange, phaser, delay, plus a separate reverb that can be combined with any other effect. And you can take complete control of the MG30CFX with the optional MG Footcontroller (sold separately). If you need an equally capable amp for practice and recording, you'll love the Marshall MG30CFX.

Perfect for practice or studio use:
The Marshall MG30CFX packs enough cool features to make practice fun, like built-in effects and a line input for playing along with your favorite songs.

I'm using this amp for like 2 years now. The clean sound of this amp is really nice. I play every type of music but I mostly play Jazz, and it has a really nice warm tone to it. I was going to buy a Fender amp for my Jazz playing but I'm sticking with this one :)

Buy the Boss Metal Zone MT-2 and Distortion DS-1 pedals when you buy this amp. You will have a great sounding system for not much money. This amp really comes alive with these combo`s. Trust me folks you won`t need anything else.

I've owned this amp for three months now, and I haven't yet had a problem. Its clean is just that, clean and defined. It's ODs are seamless in the flowing from one to the other (that is to say, you get the tail end of the gain on the last channel on the channel being used. I've used a fender mustang, and line 6 and neither of them are as good as this amp. It also stacks up pretty well against the SL5 combo.

This is probably one of the better sounding amps I've owned, especially in clean. This one in particular seems to be a lemon though. Originally I could play fine, but after 5 to 10 minutes of play, I would loose all sound and lights. It was still getting power, but no signs of life. Brought it in, and it had to be sent away. 2 weeks later, I got it back, and I just plugged it back in. Now all the lights are stuck on amber and all I can get is quiet clean. None of the buttons function. Not sure why, but I'm a little disappointed with my first Marshall. Just want to note that this doesn't reflect on the fellas in the store. Customer service is top notch!

This is a fairly nice little amp for bedroom rockers,just don't expect to be able to jam with it.Here's why,it desperately needs a 12 inch Celestion as when turned up past 4 it looses almost all of it's bottom end and just sounds like the amps you get in beginner kits.3 of the 4 channels are good but the OD2 setting is far too noisy to be useful.The effects while a little gimmicky sound fine and adjust enough to suit most uses.Very nice reverb.Being priced so far above competitors offerings,it should include the stompware pedal with it.All in all like I said a decent bedroom amp.

i was surprised how well this amp did at our jazz--rock practice . With acoustic drums and bass guitar in the mix , this amp cut through and every note could be heard , and with a very nice tone. We all though it sounds great , better than the amps used before including tube amps . Who da thought it d be so nice for jazz . the footpedal with tuner is also most excellent .

Product ExperienceI've tried it
Closest StoreDartmouth, Nova Scotia
I've recently tried this paticular amp out, and I own the previous model. I will first say that there is no such thing as "free" or "perfect", and that everything has flaws. But this is as close to perfection as possible. It has a tube-like sound, which is what practice amps are SUPPOSED to sound like. I recently bought a Roland Cube 40XL from Family Music (who don't have a return policy), and regret it. My friend bought a Line 6 Spider3, and he regrets it. This amp has everything you need. You don't need a dozen amp models or effects in an amp, the less stuff the better. It doesn't clip or sound digital like those amps do and it also handles pedals extremely well, and doesn't overload. Also, most people who bash the MG series own tube amps, which makes no sense. What do you expect? I reccomend it to beginners or people who live in small places who can't have tube amps.
