I have a Marshall class 5 head but it's not exactly quiet for home use.
There's no 5W tube amp quiet enough for home use. Those things are loud...
Easier to get a quiet sound with Classic 30 tbh
I use a speaker soak attenuator when I play through it. I rarely use the amp though, haven't turned it on for about 5 years now.
Fun thread! Great amps displayed so far!
Here's my Vox AC4HW1. Love this little amp's overdrive with both my Tele and Dot. Nice clean tones too.
My little Class-5 was s pretty nice 5 watt amp. It had the most bottom end of any EL84 amp that I owned.
Switch it to headphone out, then plug the speaker cable into the headphone jack just enough to click into the ring clip (not the tip). You'll get 0.1 watt output.
This sounds dangerous for the OT but it came from Santiago, the C5 designer. It never bothered my C5.
Works with a V1 ?
Mine Class-5 had the .1 watt switch, I used it that way most of the time.
I tried that back when I used to use the amp, I preferred the sound of the amp cranked on full power and attenuated with the power soak. Handy trick to know though.
If I remember correctly there was only ever one version of the head. The later versions of the combos (at least V3 I think) had the feature wired in.
VHT Special 6. Hand wired, 12AX7 & 6V6.
Folks are saying 5W is too loud for home use? How about 2W? Fender Greta into a Greta 1X12. Run it FTB...
Indeed 5 watters are loud when cranked....I use a Speaker Soak as well, at all times....at all times my wife is home, that is
My 1 Watt Marshall is plenty loud for home use.
If a Hughes&Kettner Tubemeister 5 appears in the used market near me, I just might get one of those too.
I love my '63 Gibson GA-5 Skylark. Scrappy, violent sounding little amp when dimed. Turned down, it's thin as hell (it has no tone knob), but a little onboard tone fiddling on the guitar and it's a usable bedroom amp or amp for jamming along with with acoustic instruments.
Been playing a Panama Conqueror 5 for a while and find it a great amp. 12" Canabis Rex, built in attenuator 5F1.
That's too loud cranked too, I mean you can cause serious ear damage. With the built-in speaker you can crank it though, also with a 1x8" (it's loud but not ear-damage causing).
My 5 watt obsession. I think I may have a problem.
I love watt amps at home.
The head is plugged into a 2 x 12 cab/Celestions. It's my favorite.
2 watts - defended by Darth Tater ......…......The DR Z Mini Z's are 5 & 5 - the head goes to a 2 x 12 Celestion cab
Blackstar. 1 mighty watt. It's often way too loud.
