Things That I Want • #1: Marshall Class 5 RAF Exclusive

I just played one of these at Leitz Music in Panama City, FL last week. It’s a 5w Class A, all-tube amplifier. The normal trade dress is black tolex with the script Marshall logo, however, GAK (in the UK) has an exclusive run of these and I’m trying to figure out how to get my grubby hands on one. The standard black tolex looks great and these sound phenomenal with all of the classic Marshall 60’s/70’s crunch that you’d expect. And for a price of $399 even if you paid full pop, it’s an unbelievably great little pet.

    Hi there. Just found this by chance having stumbled across the Line6 M13 4cm article. I live in Brighton & GAK is my main addiction feeder. Normally happy to help so would suggest contact them for help etc? I’m sure they would/can do an International order? Let me know how you get on?

    Hi Simon,
    I have a buddy who works over in the UK and he offered to grab it for me. Unfortunately GAK was unwilling to ship internationally. However, once I figured out the conversion from GBP to USD, it made the amp way out of my price range. For now I’ll just have to love it from afar!
