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.

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.
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.
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.
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"..
PROS: - Nice cleans
- Quality control
- Looks good
- Small and portable
CONS: - Really just the speaker. Gets very muddy on the low end and higher volumes.
PROS: Well made and nice to look at.
CONS: It isn't a $100 champ, but it rocks.
PROS: Good Tone
CONS: Need to crank it all the way up for overdrive / distortion sound
PROS: Nice size - small footprint and easy to carry around
Easy to use - only two knobs and two inputs - just like the old days!
PROS: Lightweight and compact
CONS: None for now
PROS: Good value
