INTRODUCTION
WARNING! IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Congratulations on your purchase of this MG Gold amplifier from Marshall Amplification.
WARNING:
Before going any further, make sure that
your amplifier is compatible with your
mains electricity supply. If you have any
doubt, please seek help from a qualified
technician – your Marshall dealer can help
you in this respect.
The MG provides modern Marshall tones for the player who is on the go.
With your MG you can easily dial in storable sounds and effects including sparkling
clean, rich driven blues, rock tone and heavy distorted metal settings. Every element
from voicing through to the speaker has been carefully designed to give you flexibility at
your fingertips.
From the punchy 10 watt to the powerful 100 watt each MG Gold amplifier is quick to
set-up and delivers time and time again. Whether you are practicing at home or gigging
on the road, the MG Gold not only looks good, it won’t let you down.
We hope you enjoy your MG Gold amplifier.
NEVER attempt to bypass the fuse or fit one
of the incorrect value or type.
- The Marshall Team

1. INPUT JACK SOCKET
Jack input for your guitar. Use a good
quality guitar cable (i.e. one that’s
screened/shielded) to help prevent noise,
interference and unwanted feedback.
2. VOLUME CONTROL - CLEAN CHANNEL
This control adjusts the volume of the
Clean Channel.
3. CHANNEL SWITCH
This switch allows you to change between
the amp’s two channels, Clean and
Overdrive, via the front panel. When
the LED is green, the Clean channel
is engaged. When the LED is red, the
Overdrive channel is engaged.
4. GAIN CONTROL - OVERDRIVE CHANNEL
This control sets the operating level of the
pre-amp. Simply turn up the Gain control
until the required amount of distortion is
achieved.

5. VOLUME CONTROL - OVERDRIVE
CHANNEL
This control adjusts the volume of the
Overdrive channel. The louder this
channel is set, the ‘looser’ the amplifier
will sound and feel.
8. TREBLE CONTROL
By adjusting the Treble control you can
add or take away the higher frequencies in
your guitar tone. By increasing the amount
of treble you will make your tone brighter,
ideal for more percussive playing styles.
12. POWER SWITCH
The power switch turns your amplifier on
and off. The Channel switch will light up
when your amplifier is turned on and will
not be lit when the amplifier is switched
off.
6. BASS CONTROL
Turning the Bass control will effect the
amount of low frequencies or bottom end
in your guitar tone. Rotating this clockwise
will increase the amount of lower tones
creating deeper and thicker sounds.
Turning this control anti-clockwise will
decrease the bass frequencies in your
tone reducing any bottom end thud.
9. REVERB CONTROL (MG15R ONLY)
This control lets you add a lush reverb to
the selected channel, from a subtle hint to
cavernous and all points in-between.
Note: The specific mains input voltage rating
that your amplifier has been built for is shown
on the back panel. Before connecting to
the mains electricity supply, always ensure
that your amplifier is compatible with your
electricity supply. If you have any doubt,
please get advice from a qualified technician.
Your Marshall dealer will help you in this
respect.
7. MIDDLE CONTROL
Adjusting the middle frequencies will
vary the amount of body to your sound.
Attenuating (decreasing) the middle by
turning this control anticlockwise will yield
a more hollow sound with the bass and
treble frequencies appearing to be more
accentuated. Conversely, increasing the
middle will add body to the sound.
ENGLISH
10. MP3 LINE IN SOCKET
If you want to jam to your favourite MP3,
CD or tape track, connect the line out or
headphone output of your player here,
adjust the volume of your player to match
that of your guitar and you’ve got the
perfect ‘play-along’ practice system.
11. HEADPHONE SOCKET
For use when silent practice is the order
of the day. Connection of headphones
will automatically mute the internal
speaker.
Please ensure the amplifier is switched off and
unplugged from the mains electricity supply
before being moved.
