Type: Electric
Model: 5005 Lead 12 Brand: Marshall
Been my trusty practice amp since new back in mid 80s

The cloth on the front has discoloured due to being in the sun as per the photo and there is a small snag also, which by no means affects the sound quality other than that its a great little amp for the metal guitarist.

No marks on the case (just a little dusty) Handle is in perfect condition

Had its pots changed a year ago so its all fully functional and no crackles

12 watt solid state combo in a very small cabinet, featuring a 10 inch celestion G10, which is an exceptionally good speaker considering it's a practice amp.

The amp has a single channel featuring 2 inputs (hi and low sensitivity), a headphone jack, a direct output jack, and very very simple gain, volume, treble, middle and bass controls.

It's pure simplicity as this amp was made back in the day when Marshall amps were built for one thing - tone. I have used this amp for bedroom/headphone practice, and band rehearsals and it has performed brilliantly in any situation - the Direct output makes it a very very useful amp indeed, as it enables you to plug the direct preamp signal into a different power amplifier giving you more power than the amplifier alone will give you, which is extremely useful.

Due to the single channel design of the amp, you can't get a really clean sound at higher volumes, because there's only so loud the amp will go when you've got the gain low enough for a clean tone. Would really suit a budding MetalHead

Through headphones the sound is about the same as the sound out of the speaker, provided you've got a half-decent set of headphones. Again, passable for silent midnight bedroom practice. It's when you plug the direct output into an outboard power amplifier or the FX return of an existing amp that this little amp really comes out of its shell. It really roars when setup like this, and would make an excellent beginners amp and could easily take the windows out of your bedroom when turned up to 11!
