"I use a tiny little Marshall Class 5. It's got volume, mid, treble and bass on it and it's about the size of a pack of cigarettes. It's the simplest thing in the world. "I go up to it and I go, 'Alright Marshall,' and he goes, 'Alright Van. What're we doing today, same old shit?' And I go, 'Yeah mate, nothing too much.' My setup is the Yorkshire Tea of guitars."more
I love this amp! It sounds really good and it breaks up nicely at low volumes so it works great as an at home practice amp. It works well with pedals. It has a low power/headphones setting that I use all the time for jamming at home. The bass is really pronounced, I turn it all the way down sometimes. I've heard that Marshall's are like that but this is pretty extreme. Still that is not a complaint. This thing rocks!
I bought my class 5 second hand - and its exactly the amp i was looking for Its a no nonsesne old school tube amp that you can crank to get a roaring bluesy monster. I put mine through a 2x12 for some extra Air movement, and I get all the tones i need. The best thing about this amp that I can say is that it makes me want to play guitar
Got a from my girlfriend and son as a Xmas gift. I found the eq section of of the amp limiting. So I use a Boss GE-7 in front of it, to dial in a killer tone. It sounds great going thru a old Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier 4x12 cab and a MXR Carbon Copy.
