      Comments about Ampeg GVT5-110 5W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

      I've looked at a number of lower wattage amps, including boutique amps and some of the obvious choices like the Vox AC4-TV, Champ, etc. Apart from some very expensive amps (Reeves, etc.) this GVT5-110 stands out among the rest. The amp sounds great both at the 5W and the 2.5W settings, and sounds good at lower volumes. The Baxandale circuits (in the treble and bass circuits) make this amp pretty versatile, although a midrange dial would have been nice. It also has a voice of its own - it doesn't sound like it's trying to be a Fender or a Marshall amp. And you can definitely get your early 1970s tones out of this without any effects, in addition to many other sounds for jazz, blues, rock, funk, and country. It likely won't do much for metal heads, at least without some heavy distortion pedals, but otherwise it's deceptively versatile.

      This thing sounded great right out of the box, and has a warmth that belies its size. Great quality tubes (JJs), and the speaker is very good if not quite great. For the money MF charged for this, I can't imagine a better amp.

      It's reputed to take pedals well, and also to do very well plugged into an extension cab - those will be the next tests. But if you're looking for something to play in your bedroom, apartment, or smaller venue, this is a great amp. And it gets fairly loud, so it would work at a rehearsal if your drummer isn't to amped up on Monster Energy Drink.

        Comments about Ampeg GVT5-110 5W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

        I don't know how many times I looked at this thing in my search for a lower wattage tube amp for mostly home use. Lower wattage does not necessarily mean low volume though! So far I typically play at the very convenient 2.5 watt setting. (And it can still make noise)

        Very quiet and takes pedals very well thus far. I do a lot of research before I spend more than 10 on anything guitar related. My advice is to snatch it up at the current price if you're on the fence about this. Stock JJ tubes and a Celestion Tube 10-10" speaker, fantastic. I know some people like the idea of speaker or tube changes, but my advice is to properly break it in first unless you're an old pro who knows what they want right away.

        Baxandall EQ is pretty cool I'll have to say. At first I wanted some built-in reverb, but for the tone, build and cash, I'll live. Love the wide range of this thing. I have a Vox Little Night Train, which I really do love for the overdrive sounds at bedroom levels, but you can get amazing crystal-clear, clean tones on this Ampeg. While I like my guitars and amps made in America or England, I've got to say that this is one of the better things to come out of China in the last 20 years! I was actually surprised at how dang tank-like this thing is. Love the classic, vintage Ampeg look of yesterday.

        It might be helpful to know that I'm using a 2012 American Standard Strat through this thing and I love it. I don't currently have any Les Paul-type guitars to play through it, but I've heard some well-done demos with LP's and they rock through this thing in my opinion. I have no plans of parting with it. Anyhow, if you are on the fence like I was, grab one up while you can. I was going to buy the head version, but it sold out the day I went to get it. If it helps, I play blues, Pink Floyd, Beatles, Hendrix, Neil Young, grunge, improv stuff on this. I think you could get some nice heavy distortion sounds if you wanted to, just might need a little help from a pedal if that's your style. Hope this helps. I love the feature that allows you to so easily use this as a head for other multi-ohm cabs, something hard to find in smaller tube amps. At this price, you really can't lose if you want tube sound at home.

          Comments about Ampeg GVT5-110 5W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

          This is a great little bedroom/studio amp. It has a dead silent noise floor, is very well built, and looks really cool and retro. The sound is excellent - nice Fender "blackface" type sounds and the EQ is excellent. I didn't like the stock speaker (harsh) so I replaced it with a Weber Signature 10 and everything sounds great now! The amp comes loaded with JJs so you don't need to swap them out. All in all I'm very happy with this little amp.

            Comments about Ampeg GVT5-110 5W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

            If Fender updated my mid sixties Champ, which I love, this might be the result. 5 watts of 6v6 power, mine came with JJs, with a palette that ranges from clean to mild overdrive. Baxandall EQ, which means that straight up is flat, left cuts the frequency and right adds it, gives the amp some different tonal options...in a good way. I also like the 1/2 power switch for home practicing, another modern twist. But the thing that really separates this amp from the old Champ is the speaker. Using a Celestion "Tube 10" speaker with a 1 1/2" voice coil gives this amp its own sound. I read some reviews of the "Tube 10" that said it had flabby bass, and that may be true when pushed with more wattage, but I did not experience that with only 5 watts driving it. In fact, I have grown to like the voicing of the amp very much and have no plans to change the speaker.

            All in all the GVT5-110 is a nice punchy little amp that can work well in a variety of situations with excellent tone and a clear voice.

            Comments about Ampeg GVT5-110 5W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

            Marshall Class 5--bought & sold, too boxy.
            Fender Super Champ X2--bought & returned, tube rattle.
            Egnator Tweaker--bought & sold, waaaay too boxy & thin.
            Fender Blues Jr III--sounds flat.

            So far this little Ampeg is the one! I love 1/2 power (2.5 watt) mode. I play it with the amp dimed and use guitar volume for gain control. Sounds just like a Blackface Fender--exactly what I wanted! Will retube and swap in a Weber DT10 speaker and then this little baby will be even more smokin!

            Will probably pick up the 15 watt version too!
