Marshall Class 5 Combo [2009-2010]Published on 09/06/11 at 21:11
* 5 Watt, 1x10 inch Combo Amplifier
* All-Valve Design with Class A Circuitry

* Celestion Designed 10 inch Speaker
* Compact Design for Playing out or Staying in

Controls: Volume, treble, mid bass.

This is marshall's response to the low wattage amplifiers out there today. Pretty decent specs, though there are some more versatile ones out there compared to this one, the class 5 is elegant and simple.

This is marshall's response to the low wattage amplifiers out there today. Pretty decent specs, though there are some more versatile ones out there compared to this one, the class 5 is elegant and simple.



UTILIZATION

Quite easy to use.

4 knobs, super easy to deal with. Single channel operation, the volume controls the output and also the amount of gain, as you crank it, it will get slightly dirtier at really high volumes, the natural break up of a 5 watt amp.

There's no other bells and whistles with this one. It's sort of meant to just be a clean or slightly dirty amp for blues/jazz etc.

SOUNDS

The cleans are ok. There is quite a bit of headroom for a 5 watter I wouldn't say it's the cleanest amp out there, after all it is a marshall and they're not exactly known for having the cleanest cleans out there. Though this one is quite loud for a 5 watt and I think it'd be pretty suitable for most gigs. The average guitar player wouldn't do stadium gigs with this but if eq'ed properly and mic'ed up I see no problems with this.

It also takes pedals well, you can throw anything in front of it and get some variety. Cranking it sounds pretty good too surprisingly! It's got that super classic brit rock tone, reminds me of queen for some reason but it sounds pretty good cranked! Throw a boost on top and you'd be on to something, I say!



OVERALL OPINION

Decent blues amp. Takes pedals well, decent cleans. Overall, it's decent. I wouldn't say it's the better low watt amp out there, there are quite a few to choose from that are more versatile, but if you want a classic marshall-esque sound in a smaller, more convenient package and don't need all the bells and whistles that the other companies offer, this would be your go to amp!

Recreating the 60's

Marshall Class 5 Combo [2009-2010]Published on 05/16/11 at 11:21
This amp is just an absolute beautiful thing! This amp is covered in purple tolex that is so very reminiscent of the 60's. ON the front it has a wheat brown grille cloth on the front that matches the amp so well. This amp is the same tone and features of the black one but with just a better cosmetic look!

Finally Marshall has manufactured an amp that goes back to the roots of what made them one of the best if not the most recognizable amplifier companies in the world.

This class 5 is an astonishing amp that is simple in design and control, but carries a huge classic tone and feel that keeps you interested in the tone.

SOUNDS

Such a simple and easy design. The front top panel has four control knobs that control the volume and the basic EQ of bass, middle, and treble. There isn't a whole lot the user can get confused with.

Just about any guitar you can throw at it you will get a solid classic Marshall tone. I particularly like the amp with a Gibson Les Paul. It seems that the two were made for each other.

With only handling five watts of power you can crank up the volume to get those tubes cooking and get a nice over driven sound.

OVERALL OPINION

This is a great sounding practice amp or light gigging amp. It does have a headphone out for silent practicing in your home or office. So that is a nice feature on a tube amp. It is pretty light for a combo amp weighing in at only 26 lbs. you can basically take it anywhere without much strain on your back.

At new these amps come in at around $400 and on the used market for around $250. I would recommend this amp to anyone who needs a great sounding tube amp in the Marshall/British tone vein.

Nice look!!

Marshall Class 5 Combo [2009-2010]Published on 05/16/11 at 11:15
The best look out of the class 5 series from Marshall. There are several different version of the same classic amp. The same features and tone as the normal black white salt and pepper grille, but with just a stunning white tolex and salt and pepper grille cloth.
