Question about Marshall Mg50dfx 50-Watt Combo Guitar Amplifier

1 Answer

I've had my marshall mg 50dfx for 3 months and it doesn't sound right to me because the overdrive is just barely different to the clean channel and doesn't have as sharp as sound as other mg50dfx models

Play around with your placement and where you are compared to the amp. I have a line 6 spider jam and I was getting pissed everytime I went into guitar center b/c theirs had more bass than mine. Then I realized that I put the amp beside me when I play but I play infront and over it when I go there. Have you ever noticed how much gain you lose when you take it outside compared to in your room. I would just look up the owners manual and see if you are missing anything. Check the fuse in the back too. If you clean isnt "that" clean and your overdrive is sucking then maybe the fuse is on its way out. Only $1 problem though. good luck

Marshall MG100HDFX footswitch toggling - bypassing?


I once used uART & some latches to decode & hold the difference between "odd & even" midi program changes. Then used the output to switch a relay in a twin necked guitar to change between necks as it were in response to a midi pedal. Perhaps you could do something similar? Else get a Studiomaster MA-36 midi analyser & hack into it to use one piece of midi data (from across an LED?) to switch channels on your amp? Good Luck!

Can i boost the wattage of the mg15hfx? When openned it has all mg30fx boards in it. is it just a different chip or capacitor?


Often the boards will be the same, but the power transformer MAY have higher voltage. Also you have to be careful as the speaker might NOT take more power. If you need more power, get a bigger amp. A lot of the smaller amps use the TDA2050 chip which can generate a max of 32 Watts RMS. The bigger Marshall's 50DFX use the TDA7293 or a pair of them which is a different animal entirely.

I've had my Marshall MG250DFX for around 7yrs now at it has been gigged regularly throughout that time. It's been reliable up until recently. I'm now finding that getting volume on the clean...


Well without testing a bunch of parts. I would say some component in the clean preamp has changed. It may have happened over time and now you are noticeing it. without checking all the parts it would be hard to tell. Get it to a service center. Or you may send it in to Pro Line Music

Marshall MG250dfx's sound fades out


I have read that the problem is in the FX send/return jacks which oxidize if not used much. All you have to do, apparently, is ram a jack plug in and out a bunch of times. This breaks up the oxidation, and allows the amp to work properly again.

Marshall MG50 DFX, the volume knob OD channel crackles


Either the control is damaged (happens if they get hit) or it is possible the circuit board it is mounted on has broken solder OR worse, a crack near the control. The unit will require servicing. Parts are readily available.

Feedback noise when overdrive is on


it could be your guitar pickups. try using another guitar or getting your pickups waxed at your local music store. also if your playing in a small room kind of loud, or if your using single coil pickups (like fender statocaster pickups) you will definitely get a feedback noise. if that does not work let me know.
