The Marshall MG100HCFX guitar amplifier head gives you four storable channels of fantastic Marshall tone and plenty of power for the stage! The 100-watt MG100HCFX head includes four switchable channels and a 3-band EQ. It also features a 2-button footswitch, power-amp damping, a switchable effects loop, and a line-in for music players. This amp is excellent at emulating the response and sound of a tube amp, and it works great for your live and studio applications alike. Speaker-emulating headphone and line outputs are built right into the MG100HCFX head.
The MG100HCFX features a tried-and-true panel layout that’s amazingly easy to use. Gain, 3-band EQ, volume, and master volume are laid out for quick access. Push-button channel switching allows for smooth, uninterrupted transitions. Combining true analog tone circuitry and Marshall’s proprietary FDD (Frequency Dependent Damping) technology, these amps provide that authentic Marshall sound and feel. This damping technology emulates the dynamic interaction between an amp and its speaker, giving you feel and tone characteristics you’d normally only find in far more expensive tube amps. The combination line-out/headphone-out features speaker-cabinet emulation, giving you full Marshall sound when recording or practicing through headphones. A line input allows you to play along with MP3 and CD players.
You have a choice of four different channels in the Marshall MG100HCFX. You can choose from clean, crunch, OD1, and the high-gain OD2. These four programmable channels give you a huge tonal range, from pretty and clean to mean and scream. Mix them with the speaker-damping function and digital effects to create the killer tone rigs you have always wanted. The new silver faceplate and carbon-fiber-looking vinyl give the MG100HCFX a definite rock ‘n roll attitude.
Take advantage of incredible effects
This amp includes great-sounding reverb and digital effects (chorus, phaser, flanger, delay, octave+, and reverse delay). In fact, you can use up to three effects simultaneously. The delay time can be manually set using the front panel Tap button. Settings for each channel can be customized and saved for instant recall. In addition, the MG100HCFX feature a switchable effects loop for adding a favorite external effect to the sound. This model also includes a 2-button footswitch as standard equipment.
From the music store to stages everywhere
Jim Marshall didn’t start out building great amps. In fact, his entry into the amp world came about in part because the drummers that visited his music shop for equipment and lessons often brought along their guitar players. Conversations about their amplification needs led to the birth of a line of amps that would eventually change the sound of music. From those first humble creations to Pete Townshend’s first monster full stacks, from the mid-’60s combos to Hendrix to backlines of multiple Marshall rigs, one thing has remained constant: Marshall’s commitment to the best tone and performance possible.
