iamqman's review"Recreating the 60's"

Marshall Class 5 Combo [2009-2010]
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.

iamqman's review"Nice look!!"

Marshall Class 5 Combo [2009-2010]
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.

iamqman's review"Classic tone, sexy look!"

Marshall Class 5 Combo [2009-2010]
This is the same amp with the same features and tone of the black class 5 but with just an enhanced look. It has red tolex covering and a bit different grille cloth similar to the older style Marshall cabs from the 60's.

joejoe66's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Great! simply!"

Marshall Class 5 Combo [2009-2010]
In terms of features, they are widely detailed by other opinions.

UTILIZATION

Having bought the amp used (with Audiofanzine way) I did not have the manual, but I think it is of no use! with 4 buttons, volume and three equalizers, nothing more simple, outputs for speakers or headset / earphone! 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! !

Marshall Class 5 Combo [2009-2010]
All tube, but after seeing the art

UTILIZATION

Simpler one does not, it sets the spectra and then sends the volume. is the guitar does the rest. Once you push the creature becomes crunch. Or the clear sound is possible but with a subtle guitar. The Super 58's custom Ibanez AF 105 can stay clear. As soon as one takes a cons guiatre decidedly more blues-rock crunch ca. The sound is perfect, a marshall tube. For him the overdrive I stuck a Danelectro, ca does not hurt. With a multi-effects are quickly lost the spirit of the beast. The Danelectro remains funny and vintage. It's good fat.

SOUNDS

With double winding is the top, especially gibson SG. Even with Epiphone Sheraton or type flying V is not bad. The crystalline possible with Ibanez AF 105

Only 5 watts, yet it makes a hell of racket type.

OVERALL OPINION

The price / quality ratio is unbeatable

plepleux's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Ultra Cool"

Marshall Class 5 Combo [2009-2010]
It passes quickly, everything is said. Just a lack rverbe or effects loop to attach a form of same pedal. This is all that's missing for me then 8 / 10.

UTILIZATION

Easier? We must remove the buttons ...

SOUNDS

A crunch quickly, very quickly and it does all its intrt. It was for that I bought. It should be forgotten for a RPTE if you need clear sound, it will not deal with a drummer even if it is not a bully ...

But the sound, what sound! Not tried with a Start but with a Les Paul. Ca gre and sends the pt! I love it.

It is played with the guitar volume to master the natural distortion of the amp, volume 10. Only one regret, the volume does not go on like 11 other Marshall).

OVERALL OPINION

Should not be hesitating to buy it. In addition, Marshall arsolu the problem of vibration in the new version reprable the rear panel into 3 parts instead of only 1.

It is really cool but I put 9 for the lack of FX loop or rverbe integrates.

The headphone jack is a plus, but it lacks an HP calculator and it is therefore not really usable. adpanne at most. To play with headphones, I prefer my Pod X3 Live, at least there is rverbe ...

Berzin's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Marshall Class 5 Combo [2009-2010]
CHARACTERISTICS

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.

Marshall Class 5 Combo [2009-2010]
- 5 Watts
- All lamps: 2 x ECC83 and 1 x EL84
- 3-band EQ
- CONTRL volume
- HP 10 Celestion G10F-15 Custom designed
- Headphone
- HP Output.

Rverb no, no effects loop!

UTILIZATION

For sound, we do not get any easier! Volume, equalization and go!

SOUNDS

I do not possde this amp, I just tried with my guitar in the store team in Gibson 57.
A low volume, a nice clear sound, the higher you go, the more a crunch! Volume substance ouuaaa! The sound is beautiful! This amp is truly the best I've tried w 5 (field 600, valbee, blackstar, Blackheart is good though, and I forget epiphone probably). Really amateur blues, blues rock, rock the AC / DC, you will not be due. Extraordinary.

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).
