Combo Amp Review!
One of the newest, and thus far most innovative, creations to come out of Marshall Amplification is the MG Series Amplifiers.
There are nine in the series, and they are the way for musicians to get that great Marshall tone and power without paying as much as they would have previously.
These new amps, such as Marshall's MG50DFX combine digital aspects with traditional ones to create a traditional sound with modern convenience and budget pricing.
Surprisingly, these hybrid amplifiers sound pretty great!
There is a little thing in the MG Series amps that makes them sound almost like the powerful all-valve amps of the “top shelf” music market, and that is the FDD circuitry. FDD stands for “Frequency Dependent Damping.”
This means that these inexpensive amps sound and “feel” much like the more expensive ones that are so popular.
There are a few more features that all the amps in the MG Series (the MG50DFX, MG100DFX, and others)…
- Both Clean and Overdrive channels
- Emulated Headphone jacks and Line outs
- CD inputs (so you can play along with a regular CD)
- Contour controls for fine tuning the sound
There are some models that offer digital effects, including Chorus/Delay, Delay, Chorus, Reverb, and Flange.
Marshall's MG50DFX is a great middle-of-the-lane model that is compact enough to carry around, and perfect for practicing at home, or in your garage.
This one is also powerful and loud enough to be good for gigs.
Turned up, it still sounds good, and will rattle neighbor’s windows.
There are plenty of good artists out there who play some good-sized gigs and still use Marshall's MG50DFX, because it has followed them from novice to success, and still fits in the trunk of the car.
