Second and more positive review of this amp
I wrote my previous review comparing this amp to my all time favorite rif my Marshall JCM 900 MkIII (Hot Rodded to more than 120 watts with some caps and non stock tubes!) that sat atop a JCM900 1960A and JCM900 1960B speaker cab's full stack. I don't think that first review was fair to this Transistor 50 watt single 12" speaker amp.
Since writing my original review I have been playing the Marshal MG50CFX more than any other amp. Why?? Because of the Tone and cranked volume!! When I need a "fix" of Marshall Concert Level Volume and Tone I find myself turning on this amp. BTW I need that fix several times a day.
Listen, I really like my Tube amps Fenders for the cleans as does everybody. But there are other tones in this world and Marshall has that "Brown" sound, that creamy hi-gain, fluid sustain that I need to hear. So yes I am talking a different kind of "Tone", but I love Marshall Tone and this amp for less than $400 is giving it to me.
Do I still look around for a Marshall Tube amp rig to obtain the Marshall Tone? Yes I do, all the time, but I do not make the purchase. It's not necessary yet because I have the Marshall MG50CFX-50W amplifier in my house. Will I ever purchase another Marshall 100 watt tube amp and a full stack of Marshall 1960A and 1960B speaker cab's? Yes, one day when I am financially secure and free of debt, in other words when I can "easily" afford too. Ha! Or I might purchase another Marshall MG50CFX or possible the 2x12 MG100CFX! I am addicted to loud, wall of sound and Marshall Tone.
