MLP,

I thought it would be fun to create a video going between a Fender Deluxe Reverb and a Marshall Class 5 (in my opinion a 5 watt plexi). I used a standard Fender American Stratocaster and used the same cabinet a V Boutique Vumble and a Celestion Cream Alnico.

I thought it would be fun to push it to the max by using a Eric Johnson Signature Fuzz Face to push the amps when they were maxed out. Let me know what you think, it was a lot of fun making this video!

Thanks,

scott

I really dislike both amps on their own. Both amps do what the other doesn’t. They would make the perfect pair in stereo.
I wish they would add a mid control to the Deluxe. It has chime and bass but sounds thin.
Class 5 is a great Marshall tone but lacks the high end definition you want in a clean Strat sound.
Fun demo though!
