A low-wattage, all-tube Marshall head with tons of analog character.
Due to popular demand, Marshall is proud to present the Class5 in a super-portable head format. For those who want a Class5 to plug into the matched C110 extension cab or the cabinet of their choice, the C5H head offers the ultimate plug-and-play, all-tube solution. This single-ended Class A mini monster is the closest thing you will get to a mini Plexi in feel and style.
The C5H head features five watts of all-tube power and true Class A circuitry from input to output, delivering pure, vintage Marshall tone. As with the original Class5 combo, the C5H head aims to answer your low-wattage, big-tone prayers. 5W of EL84 power and a simple control set of Volume, Bass, Middle, and Treble are the Class5 head's secret weapons. In return for minimal amp circuitry you receive genuine Class A tone, widely regarded as the purest in amp design and rich in smooth, second-harmonic distortion.
The C5H's all-tube signal path offers a wealth of untainted analog tones, with sparkling cleans, full-bodied crunch, and glorious lead tones just a dial turn away. The C5H also responds naturally to playing dynamics and on-the-fly guitar control adjustments, making for a truly interactive playing experience.
All of this amazing Class A tone and low wattage make the C5H head the ideal studio/home amplifier. While tone purists can enjoy its authentic all-tube timbre, pedal fanatics and studio engineers alike will find the Class5 provides the perfect sonic foundation on which to build their sound.
The C5H's rear panel offers outputs for both 8- and 16-ohm extension cabs, plus a handy headphone socket for late-night practicing. Aesthetically, the Class5 head goes back to basics with cool vintage styling with Marshall's archetypal gold panel/black levant livery.
