â€” Battery power, carry strap, small size provide tone-to-go freedom â€”
MELVILLE, NY, July 1, 2009 â€” 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 â€œCâ€? cells), and also includes an AC adapter for use in the home or any place power is available.
The Gain and Volume knobs â€“ along with the ten-position Mode knob â€“ provide popular tone flavors, including a shimmering clean tone, the famous Marshall â€œCrunch,â€? 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 â€œTapâ€? 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 true rock sound.
