Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (14 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Marshall class 5 simply amazing"
Sound: I ordered this amp based off of all the good reviews on the of the combo. Let me just say the tone of this amp is amazing. I always have mine dimed on all the controls, this gives me that classic tone Marshall is know for. I also have a Marshall Plexi and today I played this class 5 head right after my Plexi and I was amazed at how good it sounded. I'd recommend this head to everyone it's great. Fair warning this amp is loud especially through a 4x12 cab. It's a great amp if you have the chance to play it please do you won't regret it. Feature: The simplicity in this amp is what makes it so great. It comes with a small speaker cable. The amp only has 4 knobs but that's all ya need to get that "sound". Ease of Use: Put everything on ten and experience dare I say the "Plexi" sound. The Wow Factor: Looks like a baby Plexi who wouldn't want it!!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Wow! Great amp!"
Sound: The sound is stellar! Cleans make my Strat sound like I've really never heard it before. Very expressive and responsive - mmm tube power. You'll want to play with all possible settings amp wise and a pedal or two in front the amp for O/D - Distortion... This type of amp needs to get loud for any noticeable distortion to happen. And it does. Don't be fooled by the 5 watt output. One of the best sounds is somewhere between clean and crunch. There's a sweet spot and this is where you feel the tube response to your attack on the strings. Fun fun fun Sustain for days and a great full sound. (sure would like to hear it through a 4x12) Feature: class A tube circuit is the mother of all features... seems solid - made in UK - nice job on the gold piping - makes me want to put some on my 2x12 cab to match 16ohm or 8ohm switch - comes with speaker cable - headphone out Ease of Use: less is more - try all possible tone settings you can and you will find what you're looking for - Go straight into the head and WFO on all dials and you will hear the tonal qualities of your favorite guitarists through the years - Many of the sounds on great recordings wait inside for you to find. Quality: LOUD - solid construction - great tone! Value: Bang for buck is off the charts for this amp! It will be interesting to see if Marshall expands this line. How much more for reverb or another channel? Manufacturer Support: n/a never had to deal with Marshall for any problems The Wow Factor: It fits perfect on a Marshall MC212 cab that's on its side. (I checked the measurements before ordering - makes a great quarter stack) I have a pair of vintage 30's in it and the 5 tube watts really bring the cabinet to life. Overall: can't wait to get another one for stereo fun - They need to make some other colors like the combos! Marshall, please follow up with a mini JCM 800 version. It would be great if their were low watt versions of other models too. Collect 'em all - Trade with your friends!
