The MG30CFX from Marshall Amplification is a four-channel, solid-state combo amplifier for electric guitar, featuring a single 10" speaker, five effects, a dedicated reverb, and a 3-band EQ. The MGCFX line offers four channels; Clean, Crunch, Overdrive 1, and Overdrive 2, providing a wide palette of classic Marshall tones. It can be operated in either a Manual or Preset mode. In Manual mode the amp's settings always match the physical positions of the knobs, while in Preset mode the position of all controls except the Master Volume is stored within each channel, and the physical position of the knobs will not match the settings of the amplifier.
The Clean channel offers a harmonic-enhanced clean tone, while the Crunch channel adds a bit of distortion. Each of the Overdrive settings offers modern, high-gain tone with OD-2 providing the highest output. The five effects include Chorus, Phaser, Flanger, Delay (with tap-tempo), and Octave, while the dedicated reverb offers digital simulations of Studio or Spring reverbs. All four channels offer their own EQ settings with controls for Treble, Mid, and Bass. Each preset is stored with EQ, effects, and reverb settings. Additional features include a master volume control, a headphone output for silent practicing, an MP3/Line In to jam along with your favorite tunes, and a 'Store' button to easily save presets. The MG30CFX is compatible with the optional PEDL-90008 footswitch and ships with a standard IEC power cord. The optional PEDL-90008 has an onboard tuner and each footswitch can be assigned to a different stored function.
