    5-Watt, 1x8 Guitar Combo Tube Amplifier with Celestion Speaker

    Get superior guitar tone in a small package using this 5-Watt 1x8 Guitar Combo Tube Amplifier with Celestion Speaker from Monoprice!

    As the title indicates, this guitar amplifier features a 5-watt tube power amplifier and a Celestion brand speaker. It uses a ECC83/12AX7 preamplification tube and a 6V6GT power tube for the amplifier section, plus a Celestion Super 8 GBA-15 speaker.

    The amplifier handles frequencies between 80Hz and 10kHz, with hum and noise -75dB below the rated power and 0.5% total harmonic distortion. It includes a Low input and a High input, with the former attenuating the signal by approximately 50% and the latter being easier to overdrive. The cabinet is ported in the rear and features a leather handle, cloth speaker grill, and a cream-colored, textured, synthetic leather exterior with chrome corner guards.

    Fantastic little amp
    Sounds great on its own, plug it into a larger cab, even better

    Great little amp
    I am comparing this to a 30 watt Peavey Classic, which is isn't. It is a much smaller and lighter amp. I can move it around a lot easier and play it and not fill the entire house with guitar noise. I can throw it in my car and take it to a friends house. Perfect for practicing and jamming. Probably would work well mic'ed or anything else. Sure some reviews say they want more features but that isn't what this amp is. It is a small powerhouse of tone. It sounds good out of the box. I want to try it connected to a cab and see how it does pushing a larger speaker.

    Mine had a dent in the front cloth. It was stretched out too much or something. I set my iron to low and wiggled in over it for a second and it went back to being taught and straight. In case that happens to anyone else.

    PROS: Small
    great at all volumes
    high and low gain give a little diversity

    CONS: not enough of them in stock. Which is a good problem to have.

    Quite a steal for a tube amp
    I took a chance on this amp given the very low price that is cheaper than many pedals. It's all tube, minus the rectifier. My initial impression after a week or so of using it is very good! A amp to compare it to would be the Fender Champion 600. It's tonality is similar. Yet the Monoprice has a couple improved options: tone knob, 8" speaker, and a speaker output jack to use it as a head. The stock tubes are Ruby and it breaks up fairly easily in the high input jack. I like a little less breakup and replaced the tubes with a 5751 preamp and another 6v6 I had. I definitely prefer it after the tube swap. I can get warmer cleans and more headroom now. I'm not sure if I'll keep the stock speaker or not yet. Even when replacing both the tubes and the speaker, it's still quite a bargain.

    Bottom line is this makes a fantastic bedroom/home practice amp and could even be used for duo jams, maybe trios even. It's also portable enough to bring to the gig as a backup and the speaker output jack allows you to plug it into your primary amps cabinet.

    GREAT Li'l Amp
    I ordered this kind of on a lark. 20% coupon, 104 bucks to my door. Ordered on a Thursday at 4:00 PM. got it at my door the NEXT day at Noon!!
    It's a GREAT little 5 watt tube amp, and I HIGHLY recommend it to anybody wanting a nice portable amp with TONS of tone and character!!

    PROS: It's a great amp for the price. (Or for TWICE the price) Auxiliary speaker output jack lets you play through a larger speaker if desired. I've played it pretty hard with both a Strat and a Les Paul, and it sounds like you would expect a Tweedy 5 watt amp to sound.
    Great little practice amp.

    CONS: would have been nice if it had an IEC power connector, other than that, can't really think of any "cons"..

    Great value amp
    This is a great little tube amp for home practice. The cleans sound great right out of the box. The overdriven and low end tones seem very muddy or muffled to me. From reading the reviews, I expected this and bought it with the impression that I may need to buy a different speaker for it. I'm still going to give the speaker some time to break in, but if it doesn't, I'll probably buy a $40 replacement speaker to throw in it. That is my only complaint though. This amp seems well made, and looks nice. It is very responsive to my playing and seems to be pedal friendly. This makes a great amp for beginners, or anyone looking for a clean platform

    PROS: - Nice cleans
    - Price/value
    - Quality control
    - Looks good
    - Small and portable

    CONS: - Really just the speaker. Gets very muddy on the low end and higher volumes.

    Mighty mini
    Needed a tube amp capable of warm distortion when playing harmonica with a Shure bullet, High impedance mic. Something with a high and low input so that you could switch the 1/4 inch jack from sweet to saucy. This fits the bill. It's light to carry. It breaks up nice and is a real value.

    PROS: Well made and nice to look at.

    CONS: It isn't a $100 champ, but it rocks.

    Great Little Amp
    Rich tone, loud enough to keep up with a drummer (barely).

    PROS: Good Tone
    Decent Volume

    CONS: Need to crank it all the way up for overdrive / distortion sound

    6V6 sound from small package
    The amp came well-packed. Great deal price-wise. Sounded decent out of the box stock for an 8" speaker. Seems to be functioning properly. Sounds really good with 12" extension speakers (alnico, greenback, and V30 version custom designed speakers).

    PROS: Lightweight and compact
    Working properly
    Tube sound

    CONS: None for now
