    NOTICE GLOBAL

    I do not use it, I just tried taking my Marshall 50 w.
    The problem with this amp is that the overdrive (full volume) is terrible, but the neighbors will not like at all, well if you are in country home without baby, no problem! It's hard when meme, it fishing. HP cash without blinking. There is an extra HP out in the back, I do not know if it disables hp. If this is not the case, you have to tinker a jack to connect an attenuator (although nothing complicated). No reverb, no effects loop, no attenuator, shame!

    simple adjustments: 4 buttons (1 volume, 1 bass, 1 middle, 1 treeble)

    The setup could not be simpler. 4 buttons (1 volume, 1 bass, 1 middle, 1 treeble). One branch, and we play!
    The manual provided is worse than useless.

    In terms of sound, it's something else: the quality is impeccable, but to get a saturated sound, push the amp in high volumes, and push it all thoroughly lamp can wake the dead. So to play on stage, it's not so bad, but to play in his room, it becomes a…

    I put him 7/10 for me because it lacks a reverb, and a second channel to easily switcher overdrive / clean

    USE

    The setup could not be simpler. 4 buttons (1 volume, 1 bass, 1 middle, 1 treeble). One branch, and we play!
    The manual provided is worse than useless.

    In terms of sound, it's something else: the quality is impeccable, but to get a saturated sound, push the amp in high volumes, and push it all thoroughly lamp can wake the dead. So to play on stage, it's not so bad, but to play in his room, it becomes a problem.
    So we must remain on low volumes, but the sound is "clean". To remedy this, I took a BOSS DS-1 distortion. She plays the role of footswitchable clean / distortion. like that, I can play saturated even at low volumes.

    so I put a 8/10 because for scratch space (even in the studio, you need a drummer balèze, otherwise we do not hear) who wish to play in full, we had to find a "combined" as mine (connect a pedal overdrive or distortion).

    SOUNDS

    I play rock, hard rock, blues rock.
    This amp is perfect for that.

    All-tube amp, so its hot.
    But the bass are very important. I leave them at maximum 1, and they are already too present!

    I play it with a Gibson SG Standard. This is PERFECT!

    In clean, sound is not bad at all (in fact, as stated above, there is almost as clean, except in very high volumes. So better to use an overdrive pedal and / or distortion for a its saturated in low volumes).

    And saturated, if we find the right setup, you can find the legendary sound of AC / DC! (I'm a fan)

    But be careful! sound good indeed, but very powerful! will be indulgent neighbors.

    8/10, for the lack of saturated sound.

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    I use it for 2 days.

    Before, I only played on marshalls MG series (usually 100W). I prefer this one by far, despite the fact that it has no effect and only one channel. Indeed, the lamp is nicer than transistor amps.

    the +:

    sound quality
    design (vintage, beautiful)
    ease of use
    the price (we do not find many amps of this quality lamp in this price range)

    the -:

    the lack of effect (reverb basically I only use this effect there)
    the only channel that brings clean and saturated
    weight (you can not carry it around)

    I put an overall score of 8/10, which makes it a very good amp room or rehearsing (but for the stage, it may be limited in terms of power, I do not know if can hold 5W it)

    With experience, I would do this choice.

    I've tried both versions, one that had this unbearable vibration and the second version that had cette..vibration unbearable .. yep after an exchange of the amp's tube to sav, the problem persists, return to the second store and sav marshall and then we propose the second version of Exchange, brand new, great !, ok (I say "they mean business in Marshall sav!) except that the amp finally arrived at home, and là..vibrations !! when you push the amp bim! speak now sound ..
    for clean sounds, blah, it's very average and if you push the power, no clean sounds because with five watts, crunch it very quickly, and what crunch! very fuzzy, dirty, it dribbles, everything I hate, no vintage grain as we have love in all the 70 albums that made us want to play guitare..y not mind Marshall I find this amp, the overdrive gives the lamps is really dirty, it looks like transo pushed too far, I specified that the sound was the same on both versions, so the hypothesis of a bad series 2 times in a row is discarded. the sound is dark, with a guitar humbuckers treble donf still lack clarity is amazing! simple (strat type) are doing better but hey ..

    OVERALL OPINION

    for short, in my opinion, it is unnecessary and even foolish to buy such an amp that sounds pretty bad in any case unworthy of the reputation of famous brand at a price "Marshall" if it is to play in his room or repeated, you'll have more fun with a roland cube that offers more features and better sound! yes, I'm not afraid to say since I've owned a cube 30 and it sounds better than class 5 of Sim 'classic stack "(marshall!) it's crazy right?
    a board, do not let yourself be fooled by the siren song, take off your blinders and look right and left, are better for a lot cheaper .. I think this amp is designed for beginner guitarists who want " label "for those who want sound look elsewhere or try before, after all we have the right to love the crappy sound is not interdit..cet review is necessarily subjective as all the others but I still think for the proposed price it is reasonable to expect something else.

Perfect for any use. Only downside: a very significant vibration at low frequencies when the master reaches 5 for the home studio, it is very annoying ...

    SOUNDS

    The sound is just beautiful! Warm and bright at the same time, the hp is very well made, with my Mexican Strat (with microphones mounted pickups Klein 53 ', which has the same sound suddenly an American), the record is great, as soon as the master than 4-5! Live (only for small live, because the volume is relatively low, even if for a 5 watt, volume is stunning), with the master of 9 is a killer! Simply. I play mostly in the bridge position because with this amp, it seems that acute microphones make it particularly well. With this kind of amp you can play blues or jazz, or even the rather soft rock (ballad and others) for the hendrix, it will push the master above 5 to find a sufficient gain, otherwise you need an overdrive pedal (I use a Boss SD-1). Note that the bass is very present on this amp (for my taste), which is not a bad thing since there for landing, it is enough to put in the bridge position, or use the three buttons equalization of the beast !

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 1 year now, this is my first tube amp, I bought it after having tested more than a dozen, the marshall class 5 which I immediately liked it!

    The value for money seems very good to me. if the volume sounds too low, you can always plug in speakers, or record the sound of the amp with a microphone and plug it into the mixer, a short sale that I do it again without hesitation! !

    PS: The sound is sumptuous, bridge pickup, stick, it's beautiful, it rpond although the volume of the guitar. Volume substance, micro serious, pushed a fuzz bass, it's beautiful.
    I ssay diffrent pedals is gnial! Try it! In apartment, invest in a attnuateur or make a (30 euros)! This amp is really worth. That's the beautiful Marshall, beautiful clear sound, nice crunch and good saturation.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I do not use it, I just tried taking me a Marshall 50 w.
    The problem of this amp is that the overdrive (volume base) is terrible, but the neighbors will not like at all, if you're finally home in the countryside, but no bb worry! It is even stronger when he's PCHE. The HP cash without blinking. There is an exit Supp HP's rear, I do not know if the adsactive hp. If this is not the case, you must tinker with a socket for connecting a attnuateur (nothing too complicated. Rverb No, no effects loop, no attnuateur, shame!

    PS: I even tried the sound is really gnial! And presto, I order! In addition, the ability to connect the line output on a speaker to enjoy the sound (volume base) over a volume queraisonnableen apartment is great!


    PS Re: Well, I play constantly on class5! I confirm what I said in my test store, it sounds better and better (probably HP rod!). Vibration bizare same right that must be heard on all five class is simply the tie fraille holding the lamp power, turn or twist. I disassemble to put jacks to connect a attnuateur. It's a bit galre when you want to change the lights (you have to disassemble everything).

    A 5 w and who here must really need to put a background for a wonderful crunch! we get a clean trs quickly turning down the volume of the guitar. should not be too gnreux with the bass I cut personal

    As against those who thought to buy the house, forget or it will be the pedals and you will lose all intrt this little amp.

    As prcdant opinion, I have a branch Gibson ES-339 with 57 and trs is beautiful. For me the demo marshall found everywhere is absolutely no REPRESENTATIVES, you really try

    This is not the thread that holds the mtallique power tube (dj j'l'avais vir) is all that btement LAMPS ARE TOO CLOSE TO THE HP!! I experimented with the rear panel and disassemble the lights flat NO NOISE! Ds that I approached the panel to its normal position, the noise returned.
    Conclusion: I dsolidariser amp HP and manufacture (or have made) the box for the amp.
    This amp and will remain one kill DEATH kills and move to the two bodies he MRIT. Some might say why not a 4x12 to shunt the problem? I and our answer: I have not made my subscription the gym and frankly the joy of this amp is to dchirer everything in its path EXCEPT the arms! :) Note unchanged despite the blmos.

    UTILIZATION

    Warning! Despite his 5 watt, you will have trouble npas rally the partridge playing in a flat bottom, especially at night! Fortunately there is a headphone jack <img class="smiley" src="/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_lol.gif" alt="" />

    SOUNDS

    Cest of pure juice, Jim Marshall plexi and talks about Baby cest exactly a!
    It has been awhile since I dmangeait to the pter Marshall (finally a real say such jveux 1959SLP, JTM45 or Plexi reissue 1987) Because its a davion dchasse with my Rivera but no sound Marshall (despite OCD and it Plexitone sapproche but good). What held me back, the tune (not less than 2000 euros head only) and for the sound to put everything back and therefore the same opportunity to take action in Sonotone! And released in September of bb 频 for 378 euros. APRS costs, on YouTube (avoid the demos Marshall produced a little too), I break my piggy bank and once the magic cest! SETTING THE Dentredjeu jadopte the base: all knobs donf! And after scratching (Strato, 335 or P90 LP) volume between 3 and 4 from clear, lightweight crunch and crunch and you climb over a twist! By switching the Carl Martin Rivera + Plexitone you notice immediately that the EST's inimitable Marshall! Lots of real edge that no other job with the grain seventies so special. You quickly understand why a bunch Marshall not need an deffets and swarm as you start believing the words of Ritchie Blackmore reports GuitarMag: My background and his cest Lampl knob of the guitar rhythm for 5 and 10 for the lead! Ya no easier, but be careful! Cest not dtout lmonde Lampl, must have lusage. And when jdis lusage jveux say quy must have fingers that go with it! Dailleurs day heap o lkeuss anpardonne nothing in it!
    Jai when even experimented with effects including overdrive. The volume of Lampl between a quarter and half with OCD or AC Booster Fulltone Xotics, cest always traante the ball! His desire crunchy blues, but more In the spirit of Jimmy Page Since ive been lovin you in Lesprit Robben Ford blues and California. And still this terrible teeth! Jai even put my old fuzz at Roger Mayer Axis and rings.
    Same with the Voodoo Vibe is pure grain.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Finally, what the price with what his mind it will take the Tom Cruise for another part of Mission Impossible!
    Now fate cest not make an amp sound dYves Duteil times the raffle dla parish! Cest's brutal! Cest when even a little to send the wood and not plywood! The heavy trunk dbne fawn!
    BMOL even when small, once Lampl reu it took to change the power tube (EL84) that sounded dj microphone <img class="smiley" src="/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_cry.gif" alt="" /> . Fortunately, Lampl javais command in lamps and in three days the new lamp and the silent lputain DSONE too. A big thank you to the passage of Manu Laal comptences for her, and her srieux Ractive.
    For fans of Marshall, I think the 4x12 in the ass will soon be essential for low dernire something more expressive and, icing on the gteau: Evil ctampli a look. The lil ERRF the 1974X or the blues breaker!

    The Class 5 is a small all-tube amp 5w dlivrant thanks 12AX7 and 2 EL84 power. It has dun SETTING THE volume and dune legalization three bands. Sajoutent a headphone jack and a speaker output supplmentaire. Our answer to those who dplorent labsence loop, you must know that its a nonsense. This dampli Lancien and moreover low power makes a lot of distortion in the power Lampl APRS and therefore the loop. It would therefore not an amp of this type, it is necessary to know. The Aesthetics is downright sublime. That class, however the rear is less beautiful, was more modern.

    The amp is particulirement difficult to disassemble your checks lamps. Damage, does not facilitate a replacement. The rod holding the lamp power is unnecessary and can often produce noise. Too bad also that Marshall did not put rubber feet to absorb when we put the amp on the ground.

    I takes only 7 due to the difficulty of CASC.

    UTILIZATION

    The amp is simple to use and has a manual in French. Plugs are easily accessible for rear connections. The headphone jack is useless as is. Too powerful and no imitation of hp. In crunch, so it's awful. It is consquent smarter as a line-out jack and especially as attnue hp. Just one cabinet, 16 ohms, without connecting thread the cable back for a sound and strong attnu Grable in an apartment.
    As often with Marshall, the legalization, without reaching the zero that of a JCM900, a relative efficiency. I have known many amps more effective in this regard.

    SOUNDS

    Before the test, j'tais skeptical. Large and heavy for a 5 w, I have a surcrot retiscence vis - vis the modern Marshall amps, except the JVM.
    Enjoyable surprise! The sound is fabulous. We are in the vein Bluesbreaker/1974x. 2-3 with the volume, we get a super clear sound Marshall. Too many people, fed JCM2000 JCM900-Marshall unaware that distils good clear sound as good as Fender, but in a DIFFERENT style. This is the case here. It's hot enough mdium and packed with the "sag" ordinarily encountered on recovery amps per lamp. Pushing the volume, you get extra crunch, Marshall vintage trs in the mind. For when the volume goes up against strong, from 7 to volume, has become a little fuzz bass and drool, I find it less beautiful. Therefore rduire low or connect one type OD808 overdrive, which will compress a little low.

    Note that a trs sounds strong, stronger than every 5 w I knew before. No need to use it in esprer apart, except use a cab or attnuateur according Describes the trick above. It is used in a group, if one does not seek a big crunch on small and well scnes sr. You can really have a real crunch Marshall The speaker was a terrible performance, and no shortage of characters.

    I use it mainly with Gibson, occasionnlement with a Start.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I possde for almost two weeks. J'apprcie especially the sound and the beauty of the amp. Finally a real good sound Marshall for Pricing honnte trs. I AIM lamps legalization a more accessible and more efficient. For the rest, nine pay 360 euros, I think I made a good deal trs. I find it excellent and endearing.

    * All-Valve Design with Class A Circuitry
    * Powered by 2 x ECC83 Preamp and 1 x EL84 Power Tubes
    * 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!

    All-tube amp
    5W
    Connectors and input for a guitar
    simple settings: 4 buttons (1 volume, 1 bass, 1 middle, 1 treeble)
    no effect (but hey, it is added with pedals)

    I put my 7 / 10 for me because it lacks reverb, and a second channel switcher to easily overdrive / clean

    UTILIZATION

    The configuration could not be simpler. 4 buttons (1 volume, 1 bass, 1 middle, 1 treeble). One branch, and we play!
    The manual provided is worse than useless.

    In terms of sound is something else: the quality is impeccable, but to get a popping sound, push the amp into high volumes, and push this brand lamp base can wake the dead. So to play on stage is not so bad, but to play in his room, …

    I put my 7 / 10 for me because it lacks reverb, and a second channel switcher to easily overdrive / clean

    UTILIZATION

    The configuration could not be simpler. 4 buttons (1 volume, 1 bass, 1 middle, 1 treeble). One branch, and we play!
    The manual provided is worse than useless.

    In terms of sound is something else: the quality is impeccable, but to get a popping sound, push the amp into high volumes, and push this brand lamp base can wake the dead. So to play on stage is not so bad, but to play in his room, it becomes a problem.
    We must therefore remain on low volumes, but the sound is "clean." To remedy this, I took a BOSS DS-1 distortion. She plays the role of footswitch clean / distortion. like that, I can play in saturated even at low volumes.

    I therefore put 8 / 10, because for the scratch chamber (and even in the studio, you need a drummer balèze, if you do not hear) that wish to play in full, we had to find a "combination" as the mine (plug in a distortion pedal or overdrive).

    SOUNDS

    I play rock, hard rock, blues and rock.
    This amp is perfect for that.

    All-tube amp, so its hot.
    But the bass is very important. I leave at a maximum, and they are already present too!

    I play it with a Gibson SG standard. This is PERFECT!

    In clean, sound is not bad at all (indeed as stated above, there is almost as clean, except in very high volumes. So it is better to use an overdrive pedal and / or distortion to get a popping sound in low volumes).

    And saturated, if you find the right setup, you can find his legendary AC / DC! (I'm a fan)

    But beware! good sound, but very powerful! neighbors will be lenient.

    8 / 10, for the lack of distorted sound.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 2 days.

    Before, I only played on the Marshall MG series (usually 100W). I prefer this one by far, despite the fact that it has no effect and only one channel. Indeed, the tube sound is much nicer than transistor amplifiers.

    the +:

    Sound Quality
    the design (vintage, beautiful)
    ease of use
    the price (there are not many tube amp of this quality in this price range)

    the -:

    the lack of effect (reverb mostly, I only use this one)
    the only channel which includes clean and saturated
    weight (you can not carry it everywhere)

    I put an overall score of 8 / 10, making it a very good amp room or Repeat '(but for the stage, it may be limited in terms of power, I do not know if can take 5W the move)

    With experience, I would do this choice.

    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.

    Marshall Class5 All-tube 1 x 10" Combo Amp Features:

    * Power: 5 watts
    * Preamp tubes: 2 x ECC83
    * Power tubes: 1 x EL84
    * Controls: Volume, Treble, Middle, Bass
    * Speaker: 1 x 10" 16ohm Celestion G10F-15
    * Headphone output
    * Extension speaker output



    UTILIZATION

    Details
    Type Tube
    Number of Channels 1
    Power 5W Class A
    Speakers 1 x 10" Celestion G10F-15
    No Effects
    No Reverb
    EQ Treble, Middle, Bass
    No Amp Modeling
    Number of Tubes 3
    Preamp Tubes 2 x ECC83
    Power Tubes 1 x EL84
    Inputs 1 x Instrument
    Outputs 1 x Headphone (1/4"), 1 x Speaker

    Effects Loop
    Height 16.34"
    Width 19.48"
    Depth 9.05"
    Weight 26.46 lbs.

    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.

    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.
