Product Description

The hallmark of the Marshall Class5 is simple, no-nonsense, dynamic tube tone. The Class5 pushes 5 true Class A watts through a 10-inch Celestion G10F-15 speaker, via its array of dual 12AX7 preamp tubes and a single EL84 power amp tube. There ain't no hidden push-pull in this tube array--the Marshall Class5 is all about honest-to-goodness pure Class A power. Let's not gloss too quickly over the speaker, either--this Celestion was specially designed to complement the tone and construction of the Class5 combo, serving up equal helpings of tight bottom end and sparkling highs, with plenty of sweet mids to please you bloozehounds. Adhering to the "less is more" design found throughout this beast, the Marshall Class5 uses a Plexi style top-loaded panel with controls for Volume, Treble, Middle, and Bass for no-nonsense, direct analog purity and tone.

Get a taste of the Marshall Class5 in this video review from Gearwire:

Here's how we like to set the Class5: adjust the equalization to suit your playing style and instrument (compensating for bright single coils, a dark mahogany body, etc.) Push the volume on the Marshall Class5 to break up at the dirtiest level you'd like it to reach, then roll the volume back on your guitar--instant clean-up and pseudo-channel-changing. Alternately, set the Class5 up for a light crunch and use your favorite volume/treble boost pedal to push the amplifier into the stratosphere of smooth, 2nd order harmonics. Speaking of pedals, the Marshall Class5 loves 'em. Try running a wah pedal between your guitar and the front end of the Class5--you'll find yourself instantly transported to a white room, with black curtains, near the station...

Something For Everyone

The Marshall Class5 is equally suited to both stage and practice use. Throw a microphone on the Class5 and you've entered full-on club-worthy juiciness, or plug your favorite extension cabinet into the built-in Extension Speaker Output and you'll shake the loftiest of rafters. Alternately, thanks to the relatively low weight, footprint, and headphone output, the Marshall Class5 is equally at home as an at-home recording amp as it is as a silent practice amp, with a tonal character heads and shoulders above anything you're likely to find in any "practice amp." Finally, with the Marshall Class5, you can have an amplifier that treats your late-night wood-shedding sessions with the level of pride and tonal integrity normally reserved for stage and studio work--yet somehow remaining undeniably affordable.

Product Description

Introducing the Marshall Class5 - a tonally rich 5 Watt all-valve combo that features true class A circuitry, plus an abundance of Marshall tone, feel and response. Designed in the wake of numerous requests from professional stadium fillers and bedroom widdlers alike, this compact yet punchy 1x10-inch amp is the answer to your low wattage, big tone prayers.

Leave The Kitchen Sink At Home

Created in the legendary 'Bluesbreaker' style, the Marshall 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, because what you get in return is real class A tone, regarded by many guitarists as the purest in amplifier design, rich in smooth second-harmonic distortion. The Class5's all-valve signal path offers a wealth of untainted analogue tones right at your fingertips. Sparkling clean sounds, full-bodied crunch and glorious lead tones are literally just a dial turn away, with the Marshall Class5 also responding extremely well to on-the-fly guitar volume and tone control adjustments, making for a truly dynamic playing experience. All this great tone is delivered through the Class5's specially designed G10F-15 speaker. Developed in conjunction with Celestion, this 10-inch 'tone cone' equips the Class5 with fantastic bottom-end clout for an amp of its stature, yet also retains tonal clarity and definition. The rear panel offers both headphones and 16Ohm extension cab output sockets - perfect for either fully-cranked silent practice or driving a mighty 4x12-inch 1960 speaker cabinet!

Manufactured at Marshall HQ in the heart of the UK, every Class5 combo has been built by some of the most experienced hands in the business. Specially selected components, solid constr uction, and precision craftsmanship affords the Class5 the durability and reliability you would expect of a Marshall product.

Ideal for use at home, the studio, rehearsal or small gig, the Class5 is all-valve Marshall tone at its best - pure, audacious and inspiring.
Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (31 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "a welcome addition to any guitarist"
Sound: The sound of this amp is classic :) nice clean tone and when you crank the volume...a nice gritty bluesy distortion. If you plug this amp into an external extension speaker cabinet, it gets "are you kidding me" loud! for 5 Watts of power, but seems like much more. Feature: this amp is REALLY basic... volume, bass & treble knobs, an input and an on-off switch. not hard to figure out :) Ease of Use: very easy to use, unless one is severely brain-damaged. Quality: the amp seems to be very-well-made. I could not find a flaw on it. Value: this is an excellent value! an all tube Marshall amp for 399? come on! Manufacturer Support: have not used it. The Wow Factor: these are great little amps for small gigs...you can mic it up for bigger shows and it's do fine. Overall: I expect to enjoy this amp (for what it is) for a long time to come.
Style of Music: pop rock, art rock, ballads

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great All Valve Tone at a Great Price!"
Sound: High quality valve tone. Don't let the low watts fool you, this thing is loud. Sound is incredible: Rich clean creamy notes and full body chords at low volume; Higher volume adds a natural valvetone crunch. In addition, at higher volumes, the amp responds to how hard or soft your playing. The tone can't be duplicated by any solid state modeling amp or pedal. Nothing sounds like a genuine valve amplifier cranked. It is the heart of great rock and blues guitar and this little baby allows you to experience it at a reasonable price and volume. Feature: The best part about this amp is that it contains no more or no less than what you need. Simple volume and tone controls. The low watt switch on the combo will keep the neighbors happy. Master volume and standby switches would be a nice addition along with an effects loop, but certainly not necessary. Ease of Use: Simple. Turn it on, wait a minute or two, set the volume and tone. Rock and roll 101. Works well with pedals too. Quality: Well made with no issues so far. Should last for years. Value: This amp could sell for twice the asking price. Great entry level tube amp. I would recommend this to any beginner or intermediate electric guitarist as a starter amp. Buy one and you will no longer waste your time or money on solid state amps. Manufacturer Support: Marshall...nuff said. The Wow Factor: Sexy sound, sexy looks, with a nice boutique amplifier style. The sound alone makes you want to take it home. My wife heard me playing this the day I received it, and she commented on how good it sounds. Overall: I am completely satisfied with this amplifier. I own other valve amps and this one is a nice addition to the lot. Portable and versatile. If it were lost or stolen, I would replace it immediately with another.
Style of Music: Mainly rock and acoustic.
