Just bought a Marshall Class 5, all I gotta say is:


So far it lives up to the name "Baby Plexi"

Pictures up soon....

Sums up whisky perfectly
sweet amp man I have one, it is awesome. And yeah, PICs!

First I've heard it called a "Baby Plexi"... I've heard it referred to as a "Baby Bluesbreaker" though.

Greg what did you send me??
@ pics or its an MG.
Yea I should of wrote down "....and its an MG!!!!"

...but anyways, here are some pictures as promised. I went to eat so couldn't take them right away. Sheesh people are impatient here. Oh and I've heard it been a baby plexi a number of times. I'll even quote the owners manual:
"This small combo amplifier is in response to a very common request we have received over the years which nearly always contains the phrase - "can we have the Marshall stack sound, but at a much lower volume please", so here it is, a "baby Plexi" if you like."

Oh and if anyones wondering, yes its loud. Last but not least I gotta thank Rob Chappers for pushing me over the edge on making a decision to get one of these. Never met the man but his YT video where he visits the Marshall factory and tries out the Class 5 by itself and through the 4x12 cab had me convince. Thanks man, or as the English would say.... cheers

EQ all set to 10, how EVH of me

Nice looks good!
Apart from that ridicules plastic button that pops out... At least it has a proper metal switch, not like those plastic ones.

LezPaulEpiphone: Which plastic button that pops out? You mean the light switch? That's classic Marshall man! Besides, some of their best amps had plastic switches, like the JCM series.

stykerwolf: Thanks, took me a while and a lot of stress to get that 5150 to what it is today.

Pickup Switch: Its a Marshall and roars like one, check out some clips online but Cream and AC/DC should be no problem.

Go and crank the volume to 10 for me.
I've bought, sold, and traded more gear than I care to admit.
Yup exactly, crank it to 10 and get evicted
