Marshall Class 5 mods?
I might be trading a guitar I bought for a Marshall Class 5.
Basically from what I have read it is a pretty crap amp stock. But, with some basic mods, It can sound pretty good.
i have some soldering experience, but not a whole lot. How hard is it to solder a PCB board like the class 5 has?
Also, I have no multi meter. Am I going to kill myself? I know caps can hold charge. Would rubber gloves help?
If it sounds good enough, I may not change anything. But I figured I would ask on here, as if the trade goes through, I would of spent $100 bucks on it total.

You can't polish a turd. If an amp sounds shit to begin with, it will always sound shit.

^ Even if you could, it's still a turd.
Although a Multimeter is a sound investment, I'd get one before getting the amp. Or maybe once you get it. But get one.

I like the Class 5 it is a good Plexi-ish type amp.
Try it first, but you can get $250+ for it if you just wanted to sell it.
