Is it serious ? I serviced dozens of Marshall amps, played many of them occasionally, hated most of them and really appreciated some of them... But never owned one. A friend of mine was selling his little Marshall Class5, and left it at my home during his holidays. I played several of them, the 1st series were rattling like hell, that problem being corrected on the 2nd series. But both have a great overdrive sounding, smooth and touch-responsive, along with fine clean possibilities at lowered volume, just like a 18W 1974X RI that I had in hands some time ago. Really nothing to do with the recent ones and their tone ! The price was cool, so OK, let's be tempted and buy it... For the fun It's a 2nd version, from 2010, labelled "Made in England" . Hey, no reverb... . Why not creating a one-of-a-kind "Marshall Class5 Plexi Edition" adding this missing device ? Easy... A+!
