    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.

    Warm and wonderful

    Pros: Price
    Sound quality

    Cons: Would love an overdrive control to dirty it up some, cranking it all the way and pulling down the guitar level doesn't really do it.

    I have only played through this amp a couple of times in the 2 weeks I've had it, but I love the warm tube sound of the thing. It is also quite attractive in a nice retro way and the build quality is top-notch. An excellent deal for a sweet little amp.

    Great value

    Pros: In addition to great price the amp has excellent tone. Very simple layout that provides a lot of depth and variation. The product was packaged well and arrived one day earlier than expected. I like that the amp has an external speaker output jack. I will be building an external speaker cabinet for it (because I really do want the neighbors to share my experience \m/).

    Cons: After reading the other comments, i agree that the speaker is muddy when at high volume. This is not a show stopper, just an annoyance.

    If you are looking for a practice amp, just buy this amp. There is no way you can go wrong. I am just learning guitar and always thought that I would never be able to afford a tube amp. Not only is this amp affordable, it really sounds great. I read almost every review before I purchased my amp and found them really helpful, especially the comments that provided links to you tube.

    Great value amp

    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.

    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

    Can't complain for getting a 5w amp with a 8 inch Celestion for this price. Such a great classic looking practical amp, tube amp that is !

    Pros: great tube tone
    loud for only five watts
    well made
    nice looking

    Cons: a little trebley out of the box, break in will help (?)
    wish it had reverb

    I couldnt resist buying this for about $100, I figured "what do I have to lose" to say I have been pleasantly surprised y this amp is to put it mildly. I have owned a wide variety of tube and SS amps during my life., ranging in value from a few hundred to above two thousand dollars. This amp needs no apologies, it reminds me most of the sound of a late 60´s or early 70´fender champ or princeton. great tube clarity but with a roundness in the tone you only get from tube amps. crank it and you get a nice crunch sound just like those fender amps did! Keep it clean and use an OD pedal to get that crunch tone. you´ll need some pedals anyway since it doesnt have reverb, so get an OD (or two, stacked), a reverb, maybe a delay, etc. and you have have great bedroom amp. it could even pull occasional duty at band practice in a small room. I cannot vouch for longevity yet but it seems made as well as any other amps I have bought from the big name manufacturers. any negatives? well perhaps it is a little strident sounding out of the box, I hear the speaker will break in and mellow with some playing, for now I drop the tone done when I am playing my strat through it. I am VERY pleased with this amp, play it often and would recommend it to ANYONE thinking of buying a simple bedroom tube amp. Just buy it, you won´t be disappointed!
