    Nice unit

    Harley Benton GA5 HeadPublished on 01/31/12 at 12:26
    The Harley Benton GA5 head is basically the exact same amp has the at the Epiphone Junior. You do have one extra feature involved in that amplifier that you don't get with the Epiphone Junior and that is the one extra control knob that controls the EQ of the amplifier. This is a global EQ that basically is like a tone switch on a guitar. It's going to be an all-encompassing EQ knob that really takes all of the bass treble and I mid range in one control. This is a very basic design it's one of those amplifiers that has been a good platform for modification and adjustments from guitar and amplifier technicians.

This is a global EQ that basically is like a tone switch on a guitar. It's going to be an all-encompassing EQ knob that really takes all of the bass treble and I mid range in one control. This is a very basic design it's one of those amplifiers that has been a good platform for modification and adjustments from guitar and amplifier technicians.

    UTILIZATION

    This is the same amp as the Epiphone valve jr amp.One - 12AX7 pre-amp and one - EL84 power tube. 5 watts.

    SOUNDS

    This is a 5 W head that can get you a good sparkling clean tone and if you drive the volume up to full potential and you can get a decent sounding medium overdrive tone. This is certainly not going to be a high gain amplifier but you can get a good solid sweet usable tone out of this small head. This is going to be an amplifier that is a bedroom style amplifier in a lunchbox style case. It is going to be an amp for someone to practice around it and not have to go on stage or use for any type of large venue. But it is a good small practice amplifier for someone.

    OVERALL OPINION

    These amplifiers have been contest discontinued for a while now to the only way to find them is on the used market. They are very inexpensive if you can find them but if you can't find one a good alternative would be the Epiphone Junior head or a combo. It is basically the exact same amplifier and is built in the exact same factory as well. I would recommend this amplifier to anyone looking for a fun little practice amplifier that is a low wattage and can get a decent overdrive tone.

    SPECIFICATIONS for the GA5H, see the Previous post.

    Personally I imagined the head smaller.
    I paid 98 FDP included.

    I put 10 because "the price was just the wheels at Ampeg!

    UTILIZATION

    Basically, this is a guitar head, but I play bass on it.
    I connected to a speaker 15 "and gives a good sound with great dynamics fat.
    It's a head "plug-n-play", so you branches, a ring.
    No need for manual: there are only two knobs, a jack between point-bar.

    I put 10 because there is no making head and the sound is perfect I think.

    SOUNDS

    I'll be clear: the knob of qualo only serves nothing, but I do not care.

    SOUNDS

    I'll be clear: the knob of qualo only serves nothing, but I do not care.
    I get one with her, but what a sound! Listen to the bass player and get a Free Sound ide. That's exactly what I was looking, this head is patante for bassists who want the lights to any home or studio. It growls, it's powerful!

    Honntement, it looks like the head on a t ds dpart Designed for bass has so sounds good.
    I have it with a Yamaha jou whose microphones have t changed by EMG and j'diterai ending for this test to tell you how it sounds with my Jazz Bass Marcus Miller returned from the luthier. I do not use effects.

    There's no rglages 36: increases the volume more or less depending on the level of sought-crunch. Personally I love the volume to 2 hours: the sound is clear but with the typical grain heads lamps.
    I test a Marshall head lamps that sounded the same but had more drlement grow. Otherwise I still prfre the sound of the Ampeg GA5H any lights that I could try.

    The same, I put the 10 because "it is 100 impossible to find a head lamp for low, and especially the quality.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I Reue 1:30 this morning and plays. This time is more than enough to exploit all the sonic possibilities of the head: as I said dj, is a sound or anything. Fans heads versatile abstain.
    I prfre such amplifiers o shades are made directly during the game and not by grinding a qualo 9 beds, plus 4 boost / cut, plus a compressor and so on.

    I put 8 because the power of 5W does not use in any situation. To play in a bar is perfect but APRS I think I'll be forced to dub the sound via a microphone for larger concerts. That's when even more economic than to pay a large fridge with Ampeg, and frankly there is no real diffrence sound I think.

    The only thing is the price, j'espre that will head in time ...
    I will build a 2x15 "and connect it, a grunt should mchamment.

    Amp 1 channel, 5 watt, adjustable volume and bass. Exit 4 8 16

    Price on 88 Thoman and for the price it is large and heavy 10 kg .. it is a guarantee of quality.

    UTILIZATION

    Ultra simple. nothing to say for that price ..

    SOUNDS

    This is where the amp a hit. for a ridiculous price you have a pure light. if pushed a block gives a nice ideal, but the saturation and make the volume to 11 am and he came to a BOSS DS1 .. and I can assure you that you are with a 2 channel amp with an overdrive sound excellent. This amp really responded well with effects pedals. for fans of effects you will make you happy. Ps: I plug the head of a 2x celestion vintage30 Framus

    Just what I needed!

    Harley Benton GA5 HeadPublished on 01/30/11 at 05:25
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Absolutely not already been said?

    5W All Tube. An on / off, volume, a volume pot of equalization, 4-8-16 ohm outputs.

    What else?

    UTILIZATION

    I needed a small amp to play pretty simple to me with the opportunity to have a moderate level.

    Having already had the GA15, I tried the GA5 and I do not regret it.

    The clean is very good and it crunch if you turn the volume to max. I put a little Proco Rat 2 and you're joué..clean / disto for the home and is very good!

    Sound, it is obtained directly, but it's true that a single volume pot of equalization is a bit ... boring!

    With a Proco Rat buttocks, it sounds great.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I needed a small amp for the house is very suitable.

    A 88 €, it is really value for money.
