Learn about the latest additions to Marshall''s MG Series


The All-New MG Range
Marshall’s MG series has long been a popular choice amongst beginning guitarists looking for their first amp, as well as experienced players in need of a steadfast practice amp or affordable gigging amp to consistently deliver that signature Marshall tone.

The current MG4 Series is the fourth iteration of this expansive analog line. It presents a completely re-engineered and re-energized MG Series with new and innovative features. MG4 provides a solid foundation of tone to any guitarist with all the programmable advantages of a digital amplifier, while maintaining a superior analog tone at its heart.

Up-to-date and affordable, the MG4 Series delivers versatility and convenience, while retaining the trademark Marshall sound. From Marshall’s first–ever battery powered portable amplifier, to full stacks, each MG4 model boasts the signature Marshall roar plus many features you’d expect from a Marshall. This diverse range provides players of every level access to the classic Marshall sound.

Each MG is equipped with a Gain, Volume, and Master Volume to deliver plenty of body and grind. Four programmable channels – Clean, Crunch, OD1 and OD2 – allow settings to be recalled with the touch of a button. On most models, digital Reverb and Delay are joined by studio-quality Chorus, Phaser and Flanger effects that lend a retro-vibe to the overall sound. For added convenience, the optional, programmable STOMPWARE™ foot pedal provides silent channel switching and access to the built-in tuner. STOMPWARE technology allows this sophisticated, multifunction pedal to be connected using a traditional guitar cable, which eliminates the need for special or hard-to-find cables.

For the project studio or for home recording, the emulated line output mimics Marshall’s speaker response, providing a great, authentic signal without any mic’ing – or annoying the neighbors! This same signal sounds great through headphones for private practice. With the MP3/Line in, jamming along to your favorite songs with the full-on Marshall sound is never a problem.

The MG Series covers nearly every configuration; battery-powered and backstage portables; convenient all-in-one combos; and either full stacks or the exciting new micro stack.

Guitar store staff have better things to do than clean your instrument, so a well-loved but unsoiled 6-string like this is going to command a higher trade-in value than one that comes in covered in years of residue.

Believe it or not, you can boost the value of your instrument by making everyone's life a little easier … and cleaner!

There's an overwhelming amount of activity in the guitar market these days, and the sheer amount of demand has left some manufacturers struggling to keep up. But rather than wait around for stores to re-stock, more and more customers are shopping for used and vintage guitars. You might wonder, where do all those used guitars come from?

"'If I fall and somehow my career ends on that particular day, then so be it," Joe Bonamassa says of his new hobby, bicycling. "If it's over, it's over. You've got to enjoy your life."

For his stylistically diverse new album, the fiery guitar hero steps back from his gear obsession and focuses on a deep pool of influences and styles.

Twenty years ago, Joe Bonamassa was a struggling musician living in New York City. He survived on a diet of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and ramen noodles that he procured from the corner bodega at Columbus Avenue and 83rd Street. Like many dreamers waiting for their day in the sun, Joe also played "Win for Life" every week. It was, in his words, "literally my ticket out of this hideous business." While the lottery tickets never brought in the millions, Joe's smokin' guitar playing on a quartet of albums from 2002 to 2006—So, It's Like That, Blues Deluxe, Had to Cry Today, and You & Me—did get the win, transforming Joe into a guitar megastar.
