Marshall MG15CF 15 watt Guitar Combo Amp
MG Carbon Fibre Series
The MG15CF is a ‘no frills’ 15 Watt combo, and although small in stature, it is big on sound. The Clean and Overdrive Channels share three-band EQ for excellent tonal control. There is also a handy MP3/line in for jamming along to a track, and emulated headphone output for great sounding 'silent' practice.

Now that I've been using this amp for awhile, I would like to add some comments on my experiences with it, which frankly are quite good. The first item is that I live in a three story condominium complex. To avoid annoying my neighbors I either have to use it with headphones, which means that I have to use a 1/4" to 3.5mm adapter for the headphone jack, or use the amp at low volume levels. Remember that most amps carry a lot further than you think so easy on the volume or incur the wrath of your neighbors!
I have twice played for small gigs and have found out that this amp is good for about a 30ft maximum throw with adequate sound levels. I wish that I'd gotten the model with the reverb, but even so this is a good amp for the price and the 15W RMS is more than adequate for most practice or small venue applications. Even with the overdrive channel in operation, you can prevent having the neighbors come for you with pitchforks and torches as the amount of distortion is separately controlled by the overdrive channel's gain and volume controls to prevent disturbing the neighbors.
All in all I am very satisfied with this amp for use with both mic'd Irish whistles, harmonicas and electric guitars. However, it is a bit thin when it comes to being a good amp for a bass guitar due to its speaker size.
Oh, on a side note Behringer pedals are nice TO ME even though they are made of super thick plastic. I don't jump off of a spring board onto my pedals so they work fine for me. Replacing the battery is kinda nerving though, get a long lasting 9V. The ditto looper.. just get one.
I've been playing for almost 35 years now, and own some moderately expensive equipment, including a Vox AC30CC2X ($1,500) and a Quilter MicroPro 200 ($900), and I have owned and played a number of other amplifiers over the years, most of them tube amps. My usual vacation is to visit friends that live out of state that I used to be in a band with years ago. Most of the time we're together is spent jamming, talking music and shopping music stores. I decided spur of the moment to buy a cheap amp for myself to keep out there. I saw an MG15CF at a music store located 10 minutes from my friend's house. It was small, light at about 16 lbs. (my lower back has become a consideration equipment-wise) and cheap ($99), and in an unusual move I bought it without even trying it. I figured, I've spent several times that much on a single effects pedal before, and the store was close enough that if it was really bad, I could easily return it.
For an amp at that price point, I really wasn't expecting a whole lot. I was pleasantly surprised. I'm not a Marshall fan, I've never really had any desire to run out and buy a stack or anything. But for a lower end amplifier, this was at least a brand I'd heard of.
That having been said, the dirty channel, while not awesome, is serviceable, not that I've used it much. I'm more blues and classic rock rather than metal, so I'm more after growl rather than crunch; the dirty channel seems more aimed at the latter, as in my opinion are Marshalls in general.
I mainly use the clean channel with outboard effects. The clean channel, even plugged in straight, actually sounds pretty good. It takes effects really well. The amp has a well-balanced sound, and gets fairly loud. We played an open jam at a local bar, and I was able to play lead guitar over drums, bass, vocals and another guitar. The amp was pushed to near its limit at that point, but it was able to keep up; I was definitely heard, I have a recording of the performance set to back it up. For a bedroom amp, or jamming in an environment where you can't completely cut loose, it has plenty of power. Also, for having only an 8" speaker, it has a remarkably full tone.
The only thing I regret about buying the MG15CF was that they didn't have the CFR; I ended up buying a reverb pedal for it.
I liked the MG15CF enough that I purchased a second amp, the MG15CFR, for use at home as a bedroom amp.
It's a 15 Watt amp, not 100 Watts. It's solid state. It's $99. If you must have a tube amp, go elsewhere. If you want to make your ears bleed, go elsewhere. If you're a huge fan and are looking for the "Marshall sound", you might be disappointed. If you want a small, solidly-built, light, decent practice amp that takes pedals well and is a good value, consider this one.
