    Marshall

    100% pure Class A tube tone finished in black tolex with an exclusive EC fret cloth.

    The Marshall Class5 Custom Limited Edition 5W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amp features 5 Watts of power and true Class A circuitry from input to output, producing pure vintage Marshall tone. Created in response to numerous requests for “the sound of a Plexi at a fraction of the size and volume” – the new Class5 range aims to answer those low wattage, big tone prayers.

    Five Watts of EL84 power and a simple feature set of Volume, Bass, Middle, and Treble are the Class5’s secret weapons. In return for minimal amp circuitry you receive genuine Class A tone, widely regarded as the purest in amplifier design and rich in smooth second-harmonic distortion. The all-tube signal path offers a wealth of untainted analogue tones right at your finger tips with sparkling cleans, full-bodied crunch and glorious lead tones just a dial turn away. The Class5 amp responds naturally to playing dynamics and on-the-fly guitar control adjustments, making for a truly interactive playing experience.

    All of this amazing Class A tone and low wattage make the C5-01 combo the ideal studio/home amplifier. While tone purists can enjoy the authentic all-valve timbre, pedal fanatics and studio engineers alike will find the Class5 provides the perfect sonic foundation on which to build their sound.

    The new Class5 combo features the custom designed Celestion G10F-15 loudspeaker. This 10" tone cone equips the combo with fantastic bottom-end clout for an amp of its stature, yet also retains tonal clarity and definition. The rear panel offers both 16 Ohm and headphones outputs, with the latter doubling as the C5-01’s new Low Power Mode. Selecting this option without headphones connected routes the low power signal (about 50mW) directly to the amp’s internal loudspeaker. As a result, this volume is well suited to headphones-free home practice.

    Aesthetically, the Class5 combo goes back-to-basics with cool vintage styling. The model features black tolex with an exclusive EC fret cloth.

    The entire Class5 range is manufactured and quality controlled at Marshall HQ in the heart of the UK. Every Class5 combo is meticulously built and tested by some of the most skilled hands in the business. It’s this precision craftsmanship, together with specially sourced components and materials, that afford the Class5 range the durability you would expect of a Marshall.

    If you’re looking for a low wattage amp with tons of analogue character, unique style and robust build quality then look no further. The Class5 range really is all-tube Marshall tone at its best – pure, audacious and inspiring.

    Marshall Class 5 Custom Limited Edition 5W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amp

    By Roxy DePue

    from Cleveland, OH

    Comments about Marshall Class5 Custom Limited Edition 5W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    For the above stated reasons and how I intend to use this amplifier, I think it's a solid buy. If my power needs change and I require more amp, I'll consider adding the Vintage Modern Combo for performance situations. Marshall just released a Class 5 slip cover that will keep your amp looking great. Consider the Marshall Class 5 for your low wattage amplifier needs.
    I have been searching for a great all-tube low wattage guitar amplifier combo for use in my condo. Over the years, I've tried larger multi-channel amps, but was never satisfied with the end result due to the amp being too loud for my home practice, or too specialized in one genre of music. I've tried modeling amplifiers, but was never happy with the "blues" or low gain models, modulation effects, or creating and/or modifying lengthy presets.

    I have noticed that a few of my favorite players (Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, & Paul Gilbert) have relied on distortion pedals to create their signature tones regardless of which amplifier they use or how many channels and/or how much gain the amplifier offered on its own. Satriani has stated that having an amplifier with a warm, neutral clean channel is best for interpreting pedals. Gilbert has said that he prefers using an amplifier having one great channel as opposed to a multi-channel amp and not using the other channels. Intrigued by this, I began my quest for an amplifier following the above guidelines.

    That brought me to Marshall. The Vintage Modern (Gilbert's choice) would be great, but was too loud for home practice use. Satriani is in development of a new multi-channel JVM style amp, but it will be a performance amplifier designed for concert halls. Desiring a "real" Marshall built in England, and meeting my above requirements led me to checkout the Class 5 Combo.
    I received my Marshall Class 5 Custom LTD ED Combo and was stunned by the build quality and attention to detail considering the price range. It's a real Marshall. The custom finish gives the appearance of a NOS "Bluesbreaker" era amplifier.

    This amplifier performs exactly for what I need it to do. I dialed up a warm, neutral clean tone using my MusicMan John Petrucci Signature guitar and placed a VOX Joe Satriani Satchurator Distortion pedal in front of the amp followed by a Rocktron Hush pedal. After tweaking a few knobs, it screams at a comfortable level. Now, the fun begins as I choose and collect different pedals to build my tones.

    Features: The new low wattage switch does cut the volume if you wish to overdrive the Class 5 itself, but the tone does sound a bit faint compared to cranking up the amp at full wattage. To be fair, just about any amp I've tried with a low wattage option doesn't sound as good in the lower settings. However, it may accept overdrive pedals well in this mode.

    Cranking the amp up full produces loud, trio setting blues/rock tones that exhibit the standard EL84 based brash mid-range honk that works great for players riding their volume knobs. Not my style, or how I intend to use the amp, but many players using this amp are looking for a small "Plexi" style amp and tones.

    The Class A power section offers a Push-Pull circuit that retains the second harmonic (an octave above the note you are playing). A nuance noticed during individual playing or recording. Class A amps are louder than their A/B counterparts, and do not require biasing when replacing the power tube.
    Where else could one purchase a brand new Marshall (made in England) or even an American made amplifier in this price range? Even the competing Fender amplifiers in this price range are built in Mexico. All VOX amplifiers are built in China. When I buy a guitar or amp, I want the real deal.

    This is the best little amp I've ever played

    Comments about Marshall Class5 Custom Limited Edition 5W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    This is, hands down, the best little amp I've ever played. I've gone through several other big name manufacturers and just didn't get the sound I was after. This Class 5 amp does it for me.

    If you like the classic functionality and styling, and you're after the Marshall sound, I don't think there's a better small amp out there.

    I use the Class 5 with my Fender Kurt Cobain Mustang guitar, and couldn't be happier. The tonal flexiblity that arises when using this amp with a single coil and humbucker is really great as the amp is really responsive to the strength of the pickup output.

    I'll have this amp for life.
    For those that know what they're getting into with this amp, you'll be very pleased.

    This is a 5w, single channel non-master volume tube amp. If you understand and enjoy these types of amps (as I do), then this amp might just be for you.

    On/off switch, volume, treble, middle, and bass controls. It's simple, just plug in your guitar and turn the knobs until you get a sound you like, then rock away.

    One of the best features of this amp is the Low Power mode. When engaged, this allows you to crank the volume (producing overdrive/distortion) at home/bedroom/family friendly noise levels.
    Build quality seems very solid, have not had an issue with mine at all (4 months and going strong). No rattles, no loose parts, everything works and holds together just like I'd expect.
    For the price, I couldn't find anything better (and still couldn't for much more than the price either!)

    Marshall Class 5 ROCKS!!!

    By Jon

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Marshall Class5 Custom Limited Edition 5W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:


    This amp has "The Sound". Just crank it up and hear the Marshall goodness! I was even amazed at how good the clean sounded. Love the 0.1 watt setting which is actually still pretty loud! It is a little bass heavy but that's not a bad thing if you"re playing on a strat like me. I got a super limited edition creme version of this amp, which actually sounded better than the regular stock black version for some reason?!? when I did a side by side sound test at guitar center. I've been playing guitar for almost 20 years played shows with many bands, owned many fenders & gibsons and played on alot of great tube amps, If you don't like this amp then you might want to get one of those digital amps with a million knobs and effects. The beauty of this amp is the simplicity! Sure you can improve the sound of any amp by modding it, changing the speakers and tubes, which I plan to do, but out the box it's an awesome place to start. Remember almost all the great rock tones that we all love come from a cranked marshall and a some pedals like a tube screamer, fuzz face, dist +. If you have the resources and ability to play on a cranked plexi or blues breaker go for it, but if you live in a place where you can't crank your amp to get the real tone out of it then this is it! Marshall did a great job on this amp! How about a hand wired version with premium components!!!
    Seems to be very solid and put together well. Should have no problems playing shows.
    Genuine class A marshall tone for this price and made in england , this is sure to a classic and hold it;s value.

    A BIG Improvement!!!

    By Rdart50

    from New England

    Comments about Marshall Class5 Custom Limited Edition 5W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    It's my second one; I'm NOT disappointed!
    A Very straightforward amp: Vol, Treble, Bass, Middle; all you need for the classic Marshall Sound!
    Having owned the very first iteration of this amp with its' myriad and well-documented rattle(s) & hum, I can attest to the great pains the company has gone to in addressing these issues: Heavier-duty plywood used in the cabinet construction, redesigned circuit with and re-located tube placement. Result: No Noise...
    Really? Totally fair value considering it's hand-made in the U.K. Marshall factory.

    Save your Money!

    By Don Butler

    from So. Cal.

    Comments about Marshall Class5 Custom Limited Edition 5W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    I wouldn't expect this amp to last but a couple of years if you took it around to play with your mates in the flats our homes.
    Well, I was fairly disappointed with this amp. It only did one thing and not that great at that. I think for the same amount of money, Marshall could have designed & built a much better sounding amp.
    All you get out of this is Midrange Mush.
    But after I went thru it and replaced alot of components in the signal path and the value of those components did I have an amp that actually is useable. After changing the 470K input impedance with a 1 meg resistor, usinbg Carbon Comp resistors in the Signal Path as well as Sozo Vintage caps. Swaped out V2 with a 12AT7, changed the Cathode bypass cap in V1 with a 2.2uf, removed the cathode cap on the EL-84 to get more headroom and doing many other things to get it into a useable mode, it now sounds decent and bright & chimey with nice clarity when you roll your guitars volume pot back. The amp doesn't even break-up now until you get to about 12 o'clock. From there on you get really nice, useable overdrive. In V1 I have an NOS Brimar ECC-83, V2 is a new J/J ECC801 & V3 is a NOS Polem EL-84. I also ditched that crappy 10" Celestion (made in China) for a U.K. made Celestion G10 Greenback prototype I've had for a few years. Now this amp is worth having! Oh.. replace that fiber grillcloth. I used a nice piece of original style Bluesbreaker replica grill made by Eric Collins. Not, not only does it look like a mid-Sixties amp, it sounds like one too.Goes perfect with the stock Block Logo. I'm guessing that the perforated metal back piece is to meet Euro safety regulations.. I took that off of mine. Now I can store my A.C. cable back inside of the cabinet. BTW, Good on ya' all to build the cabinet out of Birch. Nice touch.
    Regards, Don Butler: Toneman, Inc.
    Build quality is marginal except for the Birch Ply cabinet which is excellent The Chinese made transformers leave alot to be desired. I added a Mercury choke and a Mercury Magnetics Output Tranny.
    Would like to upgrade the pots, but with these mini-pots it would be impossible.
    Could have been a much better amp for the same price if it had been designed right, it would be killer.
    This seems to be part of a disturbing trend in the small amp market and that is to build seemingly disposable, small amps. If this amp broke out of warranty, I'm sure it would be less expensive to buy a new one vs. getting this repaired.
    I'm sure that's not what Jim Marshall, Ken Bran & Dudley Craven had in-mind 50 years back when designing the first Marshall head in 1963

    Simply Awesome

    Comments about Marshall Class5 Custom Limited Edition 5W 1x10 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    I loved the first one enough to buy the another and this one blows that ones away!
    The limited edition styling are really cool and retro, the online picture doesn't do it justice.
    The quality has improved tremendously since the incarnation of the first batch. I know being an owner from the beginning. Absolutely no rattles since the chassis has been redesigned with easier access to the tubes hanging vertically. This one is heavier than my original one most likely due to it being constructed with plywood. It also has rubber feet which my first did not. And even came with a cool certificate of assembly.
    Definitely worth every penny!
