^ definitely. the amount of threads i see on the other guitar forums I go to where someone is running a real high-end guitar (like a US-made PRS or something) through a marshall mg or line 6 spider ("because I only play at home" ), and then wondering why they don't sound good, is enough to make you cry. Or laugh, when they say, "but I'm not willing to upgrade the amp". I mean, they had no problem with buying a really expensive guitar to just play at home... and an amp isn't just there to make you louder.

I tried out a Marshall MG at our rehearsal studio, (I take my own, but an MG was in the room). Actually, it sounded OK. Not sure what its like really cranked up or on stage. Are they any good?

All depends what you want and what your budget is, personally I think they sound pretty poor, but I'm a snob

^ same here on another forum i go to, mgs are the forum whipping boy, and it's not entirely undeserved. i heard the newer version is meant to be a little better, but i haven't tried it yet. the older ones are horrible, and i noticed most people were qualifying them as "better than the old ones" rather than "good"

Here's a PDF of the experiment:

It looks like they measured the volume - frequency distribution at a set time after sounding a string. In other words there is no attempt to measure the effect on sustain. Isn't that a key quality? Or have a misunderstood the test?

+1

I am only left with 2 practice amps but they are proper amps: Cornford Harlequin MKI (hand build and signed by Paul) and a Blackstar HT-5 for when I feel hairy.

I'll never go back to cheap practice amps, I'd rather fart in a can. You can play a PRS Dragon or custom shop Tele and they sound the same...
