Yamaha VA-5
Transistor amplifier. Basic tone and volume controls with a single input.


Extremely basic, simple.


I use it with my keyboards


Nice, troble free, budget and sturdy. Does the job well

Yamaha VA-5
transistor, 5Watt, an input, a phone, a button clean / drive, a volume, equalization acute / medium / low
Powered by batteries or charger.


Ultra simple to set up, no manual, easy search of her. It is very ugly this amp. It is robust.


At this stage we will say it depends on tastes.
First, mine is from a dump, so free.
Deusio amp is like "everything depends on your taste":
his faults are his virtues. About the vibration mentioned in the previous opinion, simply remove the battery cover ... he's the culprit (bye bye cover, Vade retro). After I'd say it purrs. Saturation astonish more than a bluesman, looking for tube amp saturates as it is low volume. W here the 5 transistors are operated in a terraced house.
The clean mode, Has it not too precisely because relatively high-volume, saturating my guitar pickups are just right. The clean Yeah, but not Transcendent.
The drive is dirty high-volume, lower it a bit achieves the distortion of the kind "what's the frequency Kenneth" REM
Whatever the configuration, not the max volume ... it's not pretty.
He asserts largely terraced house with neighbors understanding.
Do not ask for a low quality, the HP is rikiki. After 5 / 10 button to serious, it's a thud.


I mainly use the clean volume relatively hard to obtain a saturation blues.
By adding a pedal, you type in the hard-rock without scaring the neighbors.
I use it willingly because they can not fully exploit all the days of my fender clone 5F1 (5W lamps). My pickups are two Seymour Duncan SH2 SH4 hums. Good amp work without panic neighbors for the price it costs from what is happening on the net (env.20 euros). I recommend for scholarships just met. I recommend for the blues.

Yamaha VA-5
Travel amp 5w transistor

1 input jack

1 Disto


No need for manual, anyway I have not had!


You turn the volume buttons too, eh! and off you go ......... AC spit, it vibrates, in short I did not like, but then not at all !!!!!!


I've had it 3 years but I do not use it, I replaced the Roland Mobile Cube is better but not that!!

for the paltry sum I paid (a 20aine €) ca troubleshoot, but if I knew ...........!!!!
