DC-5: How to tell version and what are differences?

Post by G-man66 » Sat Aug 02, 2014 9:44 am

I'm looking at a great deal on a DC-5 but don't know the subtleties of them. I've owned a DC-2 and wasn't so impressed but really want a 6L6 amp and the DC-2 also didn't have the GEQ like this one does. One difference I saw is the one I'm looking at has a silver toggle switch on the back and others I've seen have a rotary knob to choose footswitch options. Can you help me out? Thanks!

The 5A will have LEDs next to the Gain Controls. The 5B will have no LEDs next to the Gain Controls.

Thanks. From the pics, I must be looking at a 5B.
