The Marshall MG15 Guitar Combo Amp offer an extra 5w of power over the MG10, and bigger speaker driver provide an added punch to the overall sound but the amplifier still retains the perfect desirable tone qualities of the MG10. In addition to all of the features found on the MG10, the MG15 has the added benefit of a 3 stage EQ like the ones that can be found on Marshalls’ throughout history. Independent Bass Middle and Treble controls provide the ability to fine tune every aspect of your tone to your own personal taste.
Every single amplifier in the range is built to ensure the best quality in tone and what is more every tone inside the new MG is a Marshall tone ensuring you have access to only the best in clean crunch and overdrive sounds. Advances in design have allowed the MG to become more organic and responsive in its tone delivery and through careful design the sound achieved from every MG is more lively, more controlled and more importantly the best ever MG tone yet.
The biggest advance in the way MG provides amplification to the guitarist is in its functionality. Using the tried and tested design principles that are the only way of delivering the best tone, MG also utilises digital controls. Using this foundation the MG achieves not only the best possible sound set but delivers it through the most flexible interface possible putting the guitarist back in control of their sound.
Every emphasis on the new MG is centred on delivering the quality of tone and playability expected from a Marshall Amp ensuring that from the bedroom to the stage the new MG delivers time and again to the expectations of the guitarist.
As technology advances so too the way people use amplifiers has developed. In place of the ¼ headphones and line in sockets the new MG range has 3.5mm jack sockets opening up greater possibilities to the guitarist. By using your headphones from your portable mp3 or CD player you can play an MG to your hearts content without disturbing anyone and by utilising the 3.5mm line in you can play along to your chosen tracks making the MG a perfect practice tool.
Frequency dependant damping has been integrated into every amplifiers circuitry as standard allowing a depth of tone and feeling to the amps sound which is offered in no other amplifier in its class. On larger models such as the 50w and 100w amplifiers an additional damping function has been added so that the user can control the amplifier further providing the ability for the guitarist to really define how they want their sound.
Full analogue tone circuits provide the best in high quality amplifier tone, pure organic flexibility. Utilising digitally controlled analogue functions the MG also delivers precise control and superlative flexibility without masking your guitars own sound or making your tone sound processed and artificial.
A frequency dependant damping circuit has been designed into every unit in the range. This means that the sound every MG can achieve mimics the same interaction between amplifier and speaker that occurs in Marshall's professional valve amplification making the amplifier sound and feel alive.
Every MG is built to the highest specification and components have been carefully selected to ensure that every unit exceeds the capabilities and qualities that can only be expected from a Marshall product.

- Good starter amp
I found that the amplifier reacted well to different types of pickups and if you’ve got it just right, you could find the sound that suits you. It's simple, not too expensive and does the trick.
Overall the amp is a good investment for beginners, sounds decent and doesn't take up too much space.
- Great for the pennies
The biggest issue is the gain, as the dial seems to go from nothing to saturated in about a 1mm turn of the knob. From there, increasing the gain saturates the sound more, but turning the volume on the guitar gives you a softer break-up if your going for the 70s rock vibe. Also (for me) the amp seems to respond to single coils better than humbuckers.
