50 W solid-state marshall, very reliable, UNLIKE THE MARSHALLS BEFORE 1985/86
2 channels: The distortion channel is very good but not as versatile as the clean in terms of settings.

UTILIZATION

Good sound: Taken from the JCM 800
SOLID and easy to use!

SOUNDS

I don't have it anymore! And even if it surprises some people, I regret having sold it!!
It used to bear with me without complaining no matter how hard the task, always providing me a recognizable marshall sound.
Sine I only play with bands now, I only have all-tube amps:
A Fender hot rod USA (1999) and a Mesa Boogie/Marshall stack, which is awesome, obviously!
But I miss the 5210 for dirty jobs....

OVERALL OPINION

I don't have it anymore!
I've had a bit of everything (Marshall JCM, Orange, Ibanez, Yamaha Peavy classic 30, Fenders ...and now Mesa Boogie)
And I regret a bit not having kept the 5210 as a complement to my tube amps, for jam sessions, for example.
