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.

What is great about this amp is that is it so small and compact that you can take it to gigs that provide a cab and hook it straight up or just running into your favorite 4x12 or 2x12 cab at home. It has two speaker out puts so you can run a 4x12 stack and push 8 speakers of classic Marshall tone!

Marshall Class5 Head Features:


* Class A amp design and all-tube signal path for pure, vintage tone
* No-frills control set makes it quick and easy to dial in a great sound
* Headphone output lets you jam until the sun comes up
* 8 Ohm and 16 Ohm speaker outputs make this a flexible amp in the studio and on stage
* Built tough to last by Marshall UK
* Perfect head for the Marshall Class5 C110 1x10 extension cabinet!

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 $350 and on the used market for around $200. I would recommend this amp to anyone who needs a great sounding tube amp in the Marshall/British tone vein.
