Marshall On THe Move


Marshall Amplification has added the portable MG2FX to its popular MG4 line of guitar amps. It offers a user-friendly interface consisting of four dual-function knobs (augmented by a Tap/Shift button and a single-character LED display) to provide instant access to ten distinct gain stage settings, five digital effects, a two-band EQ and a tuner. For the ultimate in mobility, the MG2FX can run on battery power (via six "C" cells), and also includes an AC adapter for use in the home or any place power is available.
Marshall tell us that the Gain and Volume knobs - along with the ten-position Mode knob - provide popular tone flavors, including a shimmering clean tone, the famous Marshall "Crunch," and all the overdrive needed for an over-the-top lead. The Treble and Bass knobs offer further tone tweaking. Digital Reverb and Delay are built-in, with an intuitive "Tap" button for setting the delay time (holding down the Tap/Shift button also activates the onboard tuner). In addition, a Chorus, Phasing or Flanging effect can provide extra downstream sparkle to the sound.
The MG2FX includes an MP3/line input for jamming along to any audio source. The headphone output allows for private practice, and also serves as a line output for recording or for connection to a larger sound system. The 6.5" speaker is powered with two Marshall-sized Watts for what the company say is true rock sound.
Pricing and Availability:
The Marshall MG2FX carries an MSRP of $205 and will be available in October 2009. More information:
