Re: Class 5 vs Haze 15

Which captures "the" Marshall sound of EL34 tubes?

Re: Class 5 vs Haze 15

The Haze sounds nothing like a vintage Marshall. They do have a unique "darker" tone then your classic Marshall.

The Class 5 was designed as a "mini-plexi" in terms of tone. It comes VERY close to nailing it and the joy of cranking the amp up full tilt is just incredible.
If you are looking for classic Marshall tone in a downsized package, the C5 is the ticket.

Re: Class 5 vs Haze 15

I haven't played both of them (well the C5 for a little bit), but from what I've learned out of the two, the C5 seems to be the best bang-for-your-buck amp, and that's why I plan on getting it to replace my shitty Frontman 25R (don't hate me peeps )

Re: Class 5 vs Haze 15

I have a Frontman 25R, and it's been a good amp. Now since I got the C5, I will only use the 25R for the drum machine. The C5 is a killer little unit.

Re: Class 5 vs Haze 15

Fender Frontman amps make GREAT little practice PAs. Drum tracks, Loopers, Vocals, etc. Excellent to have as a little practice companion for you jamming to the C5.

Re: Class 5 vs Haze 15

I don't own either but have played both. My vote would go to the C5.

DSL . . I have a Frontman 65R which I never use. Will the PA thing work with that too? If yes, then 'how to' instructions would be most appreciated . . .

Re: Class 5 vs Haze 15

It would work great for that purpose. If I were to use it as a bass amp, I would plug in like normal and use the 1st channel.
For vocals, I would get either a XLR to 1/4" cable or a 1/4" adapter and plug in like normal. In this case I would use channel 2 and use the gain just like you would on a mixer, you don't actually want the vocals to distort. Add reverb to taste and bam!
Now if you want a drum track or if you have a small mixer, this is the cool part. Run that in to PWR IN. That will send your signal straight to the power amp with no preamp processing at all.

Good luck and have fun.

Re: Class 5 vs Haze 15

DSL . . Thanks man! I was actually considering getting rid of that amp! I'm sure glad I didn't. I'm going to try that asap.

Re: Class 5 vs Haze 15

I tried both. The C5 won't sound like any classic Marshall unless it is turned up, when may be too loud for practice (for a lot of people) and not quite loud enough for band practice (also for a lot of people). I also think it sounds far more like a champ than a plexi with that barky tone. In my opinion, better for 50s blues than classic Marshall.

The Haze OD can be dark with the bright turned off and with humbuckers, but then al lot of what I call classic sounds (at my age, that would be the 60s & 70s) were not as bright as the sound a lot of current amps make. You can still play the classic stuff on them, but it is quite a lot more aggressive sounding. You might be a lot younger than me and think the 90s are classic sounds, where a brighter amp might be more suitable.

Anyway, turned up with a band, I find the Haze 15 to be a perfect band amp. The sound does not get lost like a trebly amp can and you can get any note to feedback without squealing. Taking it back home for evening practice, the sound does not thin out like some other amps do which pleases me.

Just my 0.02 - I'm sure not everyone agrees!

Re: Class 5 vs Haze 15

I have the Haze 15 too. I have it plugged to a 1x12 with Celestion V30 and it sounds killer. Add a bit of delay and just go. Plenty loud. At home I'm just at 3 of 10 on the volume and the walls are still shaking. It's got a big punchy bass.

Re: Class 5 vs Haze 15

I am also considering both of these amps. I currently have a DSL 401 and am curious how the Class 5 and Haze compare to the DSL. I am assuming that even dimed the Class 5 won't come anywhere near the DSLs OD, but what about the Haze?

Isn't the Haze made in China? What about the Class 5? UK ??

Re: Class 5 vs Haze 15

The C5 after some break in with the speaker can do anything you want. I use my OFA SD1 with the gain switch flipped and the gain knob turned up, drive about noon and I can get all the gain that I need along with incredible tone to boot. Without the pedal it's ol skool rockin. That being said I'm not a death metal kind of guy but I do like it heavy! Also I have NOT tried the haze yet but I'm happy with the C5.
