Cheap, portable, ok.

Bates, 13.01.2014
This small harley benton may or not be a sweet deal. If you're looking for a study amp with a great tone, you should save a little more and buy a small orange crush or so. If you want emulations and effects, you sould look for a good deal on a microcube. But if you want a very cheap, robust and ultra portable amp with a modest tone, just add this to the shopping chart.

This 5watt combo with a 6.5" speaker is loud enough to keep your neighbors from sleeping (it also has headphones out) and can also be charged with AA batteries wich enables you to play on the street or anywhere. It also has strap buttons that increase the portability.

As to the sound, its not great nor very good. It's okay. You won't be able to have a clean sound on a loud volume. But if you want hard overdrive or distortion, it does the job. You may do some tweaking with the EQ, but don't expect a miracle.

What you sould expect is modest tone, low headroom, extreme handling and durability.

I use it a lot to play in the woods with friends, and the batteries last for hours.

Harley Benton CG-5 Street

laerti, 23.02.2015
Amazing amp!
This amp was just what i was looking for.Its Really small and compact perfect for practice or street musicians.I like the fact that its also battery powered and you can put ten rechargeable batteries in there and whenever they discharge just plug in the wall socket and no need to remove the batteries to charge, pretty practical.The batteries last a decent amount of time.
Although sound wise it might not be the best thing in the world, you can get a pretty decent sound out of it if you mess around a bit with the equalizers.
It has pretty good volume level for being just 5 watts.
It comes with 3 modes on the single gain knob:Clean, Drive, Distortion.
Although i think the blues or cleaner tones sound best with this amp, you can also crank the gain level up and play heavier styles.
