Another smaller sibling of the Achillies Apollo family, the C5 is a single ended tone-hammer running a 6V6 for 5 watts, tube rectified. A well-known loudmouth, the C5 loves boost pedals for maximum saturation and compression.
The ultimate in raw simplicity, the only controls between your guitar and the speaker in this little animal are one Tone and one Volume knob – crank the Volume, and set the amp tone where it works while using your guitar’s volume control for your perfect rock sound. The Apollo C5 is definitely a handful!

This is the first amp Labros ever made for me ..it's a great little amp...he later modded it to have a plexi option which is the one I ended up using most. I've used it on recordings and live gigs. Here is an example playing a Strat straight in and wound up to 10! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTDs01QWZ54
I love mine. Its everything I wanted ..which of course it is because Labros added all the custom options I wanted. Great amp, great sound and great experience working with Labros. I highly recommend you do the same.
I’m really happy with my Apollo C5 Sounds like a Million Bucks! I think I may have to purchase some more amps.... Great work Labros! I made a bit of a demo - https://youtu.be/TgFBAFh4kLA
I'd always been happy with stock fender amps (pro/blues Jr etc.) but that was probably because I'd never owned one of these. The build quality is exceptional. More importantly though, it sounds exactly like I'd anticipated in my head: Rich, uncomplicated vintage tones (playing a Tele with single coils). It provides a great foundation tone that allows you to focus on your playing rather than endless tweaking. Certainly fine for gigs too I'd say if mic'd. Very happy - Thanks guys!
