    I used one from early 90' s till 2015 . I have a HW version now . i play a very loud clean style and , i like to jam with drummers and not everybody has a PA sitting around to mic tiny little amps. The BB has the balls to practice live. Yes the HW is good bit louder , the hw larger cab sounds so rich and big. even more sweeter to my ear for the vintage rock pop i play. i move mine withna compact light weight hand truck . But i use a F250 van to haul everything .

    Congrats on the new Marshall! One of my dream Marshalls. But 80lbs is crazy if somebody has to move it around a lot. I don't even like to move my 50lb DSL. I'd also love an AC15/30, but an AC10 is probably the way I'll go just because of weight and volume.

    It certainly is. I like the Class 5 and have used it a lot for about a year. I bought it as it was said to be a sort of mini bluesbreaker, now I have the real thing I realise they are quite different sounding amps.

    Of course you can't really compare a 5 watt amp with a small cab and 10 inch speaker to a 30 watt amp that's about 4 times the size with two 12 inches speakers, but I still like the Class 5 for what it does, especially on the low power mode for home use. I have a feeling it might be going on eBay though once I have an attenuator for the bluesbreaker!

    It's brand new, hopefully it'll stay in good condition in the flight case, but it's my gigging amp so that may or may not happen!
    Gigging with these is odd, they are amazing but you are always very aware that all the controls and a huge vent are on top, and worry every time another band wants to put their drinks down on something, having stuff spill on top of it is a concern

    Those things will be collectable in the future. In the year 2067 they'll probably fetch about $12K. :thumb:




    :D

    Congrats!
