Now come on lets dont take the G-5 seriously for live application, it is what it is! Its not for anything else other than individual practice and testing. Or maybe a private little semi acoustic jam or something. Distortion is more useful when set at lower gain. P90's sound better than humbuckers for the G-5, I imagine single coils would sound good too. Knowing which guitar sounds best thru what amp is common place, even th G5 has its niche. Nice little amp as long as you know its boundaries. Understanding what thie G-5 can and cant do is critical, as with any amp. Overall sound is ok, having reverb would bring it higher numbers. An open back space to carry the adaptor would have been a plus too. Also the 9v power input jack should have been placed on the back or side, not the front. All in all, I'm satisfied , it is what I expected.
Input, gain, volume, tone, distortion switch, headphone out, comes with a 9v adaptor, or use a 9v battery to power up(located inside and countersunk in the back panel). Has a real handle, rubber legs, protectuve corners. nice grill and logo. Light weight. About 4 x 10 x 10 in size. And closed back design. If it had Reverb I would have bumped it up a number.
Seems a very good build for a little guy, quite sturdy. No issues in cosmetics.
Rated at a 9 because I knew what I was getting and thats all I wanted. Useing it for low volume individual practice and testing when I work on my gear. Very portable and thats a plus, I already have have everything in between up to a full stack+.

I wanted an amp to busk with, but this is simply too quiet. My cohort has a Vox, the 3w mini one, and it's about twice as loud as this--even when I crank it. The tone is OK, but not good. Simply put, I'm buying a new battery powered amp.

Poor sound

By Greyrock-YRx3B

from Austin, Tx

Comments about Rogue G5 5W Battery-Powered Guitar Combo Amp:

This is the same amp sold by Lyon (Washburn) as the LA5 and Cresent, with a different name. Tiny speaker has no bass. This is slightly better than the plastic mini amps that are little more than bookshelf decorations from the name brands at least it has a proper box and covering.

Great Little Combo Amp For Practice

By Duts

from Youngstown, Ohio

See all my reviews

Comments about Rogue G5 5W Battery-Powered Guitar Combo Amp:

You cannot go wrong with the ROGUE G-5 mini amp. Just remember it is only 5 watts output so use and enjoy it according. I also found out I could run my keyboard through the input and use it as a practice amp for my keyboards and guitars.
Has gain, volume and tone controls with input and phone outputs. On & off switch with lighted LED. Powered by 9 volt DC battery or included 9 VDC power supply which plugs into the front of the amp by the on/off switch. This Rogue G-5 looks and feels like a much bigger amp.
Cabinet built very sturdy with handle on top. All side corners have plastic protectors. The sound is what you would expect for a mini - amp. This would be excellent for practice or just playing in a small room for fun. Also with the battery backup you can take this outside and play for hours.
The ROGUE G-5 is an excellent mini-amp which you will find handy for practice or just playing without waking up the entire house or neighborhood.

Not really an Amp

By Wayfinder

from Midwest

Comments about Rogue G5 5W Battery-Powered Guitar Combo Amp:

For my needs, this device proved to be useless. For others it may have some very limited application (such as practicing their electric solid-body guitar at 2am without disturbing others). It also makes an attractive doorstop... which will probably be my application. Honest. ; )
Has all the basic controls, easy to access. Battery is easy to install. Device is easy to use.
It's well-built and sturdy, not flimsy at all.
It could only be considered an "amp" by the furthest stretch. Even at full gain and full volume, sitting right in my lap, playing my electric accoustic classical guitar, the sound was no louder than the guitar itself. Indeed, playing the guitar at low-strum (ie, lower volume), the guitar drowned out the "amp". The only use I could consider for this amp is if one had a solid body electric guitar that they just wished to hear while they're practicing, without disturbing the person in the room next to them (for the sound surely would not carry that far). Were one to use a microphone and voice... your voice would drown out the amp itself.

Comments about Rogue G5 5W Battery-Powered Guitar Combo Amp:

This is a good option for a very small, very portable practice amp. The sound is not great, but it's good for trying new ideas or just bending strings. It's an inexpensive practice amp, so that's what you get. The sound is better with head phones, but that's not typically an option for me. I'm happy with the purchase, it's what I expected for the price. You want 100 watts of Marshal tube crunch, buy a Marshal tube amp. You want to hear your guitar over the washing machine, cleaning your clothes for your trip to the daily grind, then this is a great amp for the price.

    Comments about Rogue G5 5W Battery-Powered Guitar Combo Amp:

    I love this amp! It has options for portable battery power, or a 110v plug-in power supply (included). The sound is great for small gatherings on the patio at home, a small studio for lessons, and personal practice. I haven't tried it for larger events. The battery can drain quickly if you crank the volume up, but the sound is very nice and clear on 110v power, and the overdrive gives a great boost.

    Comments about Rogue G5 5W Battery-Powered Guitar Combo Amp:

    I'm presently in a rock bank and built a studio in the basement. It is a perfect little practice amp to keep upstairs in my room, where I can practice without lugging something heavier upstairs. I seen it on Stupid Deal of the Day for $20, If I would have known how good is sounded, I would have bought four of them. Perfect for bring to my favorite camp ground and playing with my Buds.
    Gain, volume, tone, and a clean or distortion botton, It can run off battery or 9V ac adaptor, included.
    Very solid, and compact.
    Great value, counldn't pass it up.
