5 Watts of Classic Marshall Tone!The Marshall Class5 gives you authentic Marshall valve tone in a 5-watt combo amp. This all-tube combo employs a streamlined feature set to give you a Bluesbreaker-style aesthetic with a simple Plexi-style control setup. The preamp has a pair of ECC83 tubes for preamp distortion. The power section of the Class5 uses a single EL84, which gives you classic Class A vibe. This beauty is packed with the tone of a big stack, and is extremely responsive to your realtime guitar volume and tone tweaks. Big sound in a small package. That's Marshall's Class5.
Marshall Class5 All-tube 1 x 10" Combo Amp at a Glance:
This amp gives you mountains of classic Marshall tube mojo
Created in the legendary "Bluesbreaker" style, the Class5 gets back to basics with a top-loaded Plexi-esque panel comprising Volume, Treble, Middle, and Bass. This simple feature set is the Class5's secret weapon, as what you get in return is authentic Class A tone, regarded by many as the purest amplifier design, rich in smooth second-harmonic distortion. The all-tube signal path offers a wealth of untainted analog tones at your fingertips. Sparkling cleans, full-bodied crunch, and glorious lead tones are literally just a dial turn away. With the Class5 also responding extremely well to on-the-fly guitar volume and tone control adjustments, it's a truly dynamic playing experience.
Specially designed speaker serves up primo tone
The Marshall Class5 delivers it's tone package through a special-design G10F-15 speaker. Co-developed with Celestion, this 10" gives the Class5 amazing low-end clout for an amp of its diminutive size, while retaining clarity and definition. The Class5's rear panel gives you both headphone and a 16ohm extension cabinet output socket, perfect for fully-cranked silent practice - or driving a 4x12 speaker cabinet to ear-bludgeoning levels!

by Brandon from FloridaThis is an awesome amp. I bought it after realizing I greatly needed something in the lower watt realm as my other amps are all 30+ watts. It sounds amazing and will easily achieve late 60's and 70'... read more [+]s rock tones (Zepplin, AC/DC, The Who, some Hendrix). Don't let the 5 Watt rating fool you though, the amp is much louder than I expected it to be. The low power mode is great but doesn't deliver the same harmonic richness as compared to full power. Dont expect to crank it in 5 Watt mode in an apartment without upsetting someone. Overall its a fantastic amp for under $500. close [-]

This Marshall Class 5 is AWESOME
by Dave from Bloomington, INMarshall did some awesome modifications from the original version of this amp with the placement of the components as well as the totally killer low power mode! This amp sounds amazing on its own wit... read more [+]h a Gibson Les Paul or with overdrive or distortion pedals in front (in either regular 5 watt mode or the low power mode). It should be noted that the clean tone of this amp is fantastic and of course it will roar like a Marshall should. This amp is sensitive to the guitars volume so you can really go from cleaner tones to more crunchy and heavy tones just with your volume on the guitar. I love this amp, its everything I wanted. close [-]

Excellent Tone at the Right Volume
by Ryan from Pittsburgh, PABlends nice and can go over top of rock band if everyone sets there levels to the natural acoustic volume of the drum set.

Takes pedals nicely - analog man KOT sounds great. Not a clean amp and not a bright amp, not a metal amp. I would recommend this or any other reputable low watt tube amp for anyone who wants there singer to develop good singing habits instead of screaming over top of 1000 watts blasting in his/her ears. Remember to know what you want out of an amp before you buy. close [-]
