So what do people think about the new Marshall series of amps?  The current demos out on YouTube sound terrific.

Hey Bruce – what I hear is that they had problems with the original MG line and so they have revamped the series inside and outside.  I own fender mustang III and Blackstar HT-20 Studio, but always wanted a Marshall and the Marshall Tone.

The MG series doesn't really give you the legitimate marshall tone I feel you're looking for, as I've played the MG many times, and my friends that own it aren't completely happy with it. I'd say try it out 3x in the shop, and if you end up liking it all 3 times, buy it

From my experience as a owner of a MG 250dfx, I can say that it is possibly the worst solid state amp I have every played/owned, there are definitely better solid state amps than Marshall's.   If you want Marshall tone then I would suggest trying out the new Marshall DSL series or a Blackstar HT20… I have played a Marshall DSL 15c, and Blackstar HT20 and they both were pretty sweet.
