Marshall mini stack?

Does anyone own this or played it? Marshall MG Series MG15CFXMS I am looking for a small head and cabinet to use in my house for recording purposes and practice.


What do you think of this if you have used it? I have a chance to buy one for $225.


I am also looking at the 100W MG head and a 4x12 cab, but I think that may be a little much.

That is alot of wattage. I have a Fender Blues JRiii 15 watt tube amp, I cant stay in the same room with it above 7 or 8, 15 watts doesnt sound like much, but its SUPER loud, I also have a Marshall DSL40C tube amp, it will make your ears bleed. Ive heard good and bad about Marshall solid state amps, I personally like tube amps better, but thats just me. They are more expensive , but the sound quality cant be beat. The Fender amp breaks up really nice at higher volumes, no need for a distortion pedal, just plug straight in to the amp and use the 2 volume controls to go clean or dirty. Just throwin that out there, it dont have to be high wattage to be super loud, if you have the funds, consider a tube amp, you wont be sorry.

A 15 watt SS a is pretty loud for a bedroom/ recording amp

Personally I like the Valvestate amps from Marshall a lot better than their MG series, if you prefer a solid state amp. On the other hand, Marshall has very cute 1W and 5W valve amps, which are certainly interesting as bedroom amps.

Btw if you're looking for a Mashall sound in lunchbox format, also make sure to check Blackstar HT- (1 or 5) series. That company was founded by ex-Marshall employees, so you know what to expect. I had the HT-5 with 2x 10" cabs as a mini stack, which was good for both the bed room as well as small pub gigs. Still regret I sold that one.

I have the older MG15MSII Mini Stack. Like all Marshalls it has a fairly decent sound, but I agree with LRS, they do better small valve amps. I have a DSL5C, 5 watt 1 x 10" combo, which is brilliant. It has switchable power, and in low power mode it drops to about 1W, or thereabouts. It has no built-in reverb, but a TC Electronic HOF mini cures that, plus it has footswitchable twin channels. Perfick!

If you don't mind solid state I can vouch for the Marshall Code 25. Lots of built in effects and amp/cab simulators and with a master volume you can use it at home. It has a usb port you can use for recording too.

When I was looking for a Marshall I had to go with the Valvestate-the valve was so much smoother. The MG was'nt even close to the Valvestate!
