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.

The emotional wallop of the acoustic guitar sometimes flies under the radar. Even if you mostly play electric, here are some things to consider about unplugging.

I have a love-hate relationship with acoustic guitars. My infatuation with the 6-string really blasted off with the Ventures. That’s the sound I wanted, and the way to get it was powered by electricity. Before I’d even held a guitar, I knew I wanted a Mosrite, which I was sure was made of fiberglass like the surfboards the Beach Boys, Surfaris, and the Challengers rode in their off time. Bristling with space-age switchgear and chrome-plated hardware, those solidbody hotrod guitars were the fighter jets of my musical dreams. I didn’t even know what those old-timey round-hole guitars were called. As the singing cowboys Roy Rogers and Gene Autrey strummed off into the sunset, the pace of technology pushed the look and sound of the electric guitar (and bass) into the limelight and into my heart. Imagine my disappointment when I had to begin my guitar tutelage on a rented Gibson “student” acoustic. At least it sort of looked like the ones the Beatles occasionally played. Even so, I couldn’t wait to trade it in.
