Huge Marshall Tone!

The Marshall MG100HCFX guitar amplifier head gives you four storable channels of fantastic Marshall tone and plenty of power for the stage! The 100-watt MG100HCFX head includes four switchable channels and a 3-band EQ. It also features a 2-button footswitch, power amp damping, a switchable effects loop, and a line-in for music players. This amp is excellent at emulating the response and sound of a tube amp, and it works great for your live and studio applications alike. Speaker-emulating headphone and line outputs are built right into the MG100HCFX head.

Marshall MG100HCFX 100-watt Guitar Amp Head with Effects and Reverb at a Glance:

  • Killer tones
  • Take advantage of incredible effects
  • From the music store to stages everywhere
Simple panel layout for easy tweaks

The MG100HCFX features a tried-and-true panel layout that's amazingly easy to use. Gain, 3-band EQ, volume, and master volume controls are laid out for quick access. Push-button channel switching allows for smooth, uninterrupted transitions. Combining true analog tone circuitry and Marshall's proprietary FDD (Frequency Dependent Damping) technology, these amps provide that authentic Marshall sound and feel. This damping technology emulates the dynamic interaction between an amp and its speaker, giving you feel and tone characteristics you'd normally only find in far more expensive tube amps. The combination line-out/headphone-out features speaker-cabinet emulation, giving you full Marshall sound when recording or practicing through headphones. A line input allows you to play along with MP3 and CD players.

Killer tones

You have a choice of four different channels in the Marshall MG100HCFX. You can choose from clean, crunch, OD 1, and the high-gain OD 2. These four programmable channels give you a huge tonal range, from pretty and clean to mean and scream. Mix them with the speaker-damping function and digital effects to create the killer tone rigs you have always wanted. The new silver faceplate and carbon-fiber-looking vinyl give the MG100HCFX a definite rock 'n roll attitude.

Take advantage of incredible effects

This amp includes great-sounding reverb and digital effects (chorus, phaser, flanger, delay, octave+, and reverse delay). In fact, you can use up to three effects simultaneously. The delay time can be manually set using the front panel tap button. Settings for each channel can be customized and saved for instant recall. In addition, the MG100HCFX features a switchable effects loop for adding a favorite external effect to the sound. This model also includes a 2-button footswitch as standard equipment.

From the music store to stages everywhere

Jim Marshall didn't start out building great amps. In fact, his entry into the amp world came about in part because the drummers that visited his music shop for equipment and lessons often brought along their guitar players. Conversations about their amplification needs led to the birth of a line of amps that would eventually change the sound of music. From those first humble creations to Pete Townshend's first monster full stacks, from the mid-'60s combos to Hendrix to backlines of multiple Marshall rigs, one thing has remained constant: Marshall's commitment to the best tone and performance possible.

Tone Monster

I've had this amp for just about 2 years and you can get some really beautiful sounds out it. The clean channel is amazing on this amp. It's shimmery crisp and clear. The overdrive channels are good for blues and classic rock but if you desire more grit and just want a little more umph use a distortion pedal like the boss MD-2 through the clean channel . The effects are decent and can add some good flavor to your overall sound. This thing is loud and definitely gigable.
5/5

Seriously Underrated!

To best give an example of how this amp sounds, search Soundcloud for a song called (Through the Veil by Chris Shields). I recorded this with only the MG100HCFX head with a mic'd 2x12 and nothing else. Recording chain is in the notes. I have always been a fan of solid state, and this amp is capable of great tones. Four channels and analog amp section make it a steal. If you have to have a tube amp, go for it, but for the cost of new tubes and maintenance, you can get this amp and be very happy with it!

I really Like this !

I've had this amp head for about a year now and I run in to a Peavey 4x12 cabinet. This head has great tone and the onboard FX are really good. I seldom use the on board FX because I run my VOX ToneLab LE on the FX loop. However, if you want to use the on board FX, You can choose from clean, crunch, OD1, and the high-gain OD2 and these can be mixed with its nice sounding reverb and digital effects (chorus, phaser, flanger, delay, octave, and reverse delay). In fact, you can use up to three effects simultaneously. The delay time can be manually set using the front panel Tap button. You can save the settings for each channel for instant recall. So, as you can see, I have a VAST array of sounds to choose from (with the ToneLab LE on the external FX loop). The MP3 line in makes for more fun. I’ve read stories about how bad some of these amps are but this one has been a good one. The amp also comes with the foot switch free. If you want big sound without big price tag this is one way to go. If smoke came out of mine the next time I turned it on I would buy another. The carbon fiber look case is cool looking also. Is it a tube head? NO! Does it sound great? YES! Does it cost way less than a 100 watt tube head? YES! 5 stars from me.
Music background: Hobbyist, very little live gigging, partys, jam w/friends

My Marshall mg100hcfx

I hesitated on buying this head because of the negative ratings I read all over the Internet of how bad the dirty channels sound. Anthony Longano my sales engineer said he wasn't wild about the dirty channels but the clean channel sounds great. I play clean channels and this amp sounds great. I'm really glad I bought this amp and matching cabinet. If you play clean buy this amp you won't be sorry. Also don't hesitate to call Anthony Longano at ext. 1279. He has been my sales engineer for 2 years and he is awesome.
