  • NAD: I learned some valuable lessons today.

    Lesson 1: Marshall Class 5 and I were just made for each other.

    Lesson 2: The Marshall Class 5 and its built-in speaker were made for each other, because it sounded really ****************ty when I swapped speakers with my Vox AC4, which has a Celestion G10 Vintage. That just made both amps sound like ****************. The Marshall Class 5 is really, really good stock, even comes with a JJ EL84, though I swapped with an EH just because.

    Lesson 3: Marshall doesn't know how to build tube retainers, apparently. The built-in one sucks, I just took it out.

    Lesson 4: Unrelated, but Scumnicos are wonderful:

    On a related topic, is there a larger amp that sounds like an oversized Class 5?

      1987x or  Bluebreaker combo?

    Not exactly the same, but try a Marshall 18 watter or clone some time.

    Celestion V10s are a hard rock speaker & have some strong tone shaping & frequency peaks - only good in the right amp.

    Glad you like it. There is a great demo on youtube by Minnie the moocher.

      Jmp 50watt Marshall in head or combo sound like a Class5 but much fuller and louder. It also depends on what speakers you play them through.

    Is there a JMP clone that isn't so big? What about a TMB 18 watt clone?

    I tried Class 5 at rehearsal a couple of days ago and the volume wasn't bad but it was just a bit flubby. Did not sound tight. Also no headroom but it was the flubby that ruined it. I feel like 10-12 watts and a 12" and the flubby would be gone.

        Why do you love it when you describe it as flubby, not tight and without any headroom?  Curious...
