Perfect for Studio and StageMeet the re-designed Express 5:25 Plus guitar amp head. The "plus" means Mesa/Boogie engineered some major enhancements to this all-tube beast: improved clean voicing, a sweet 5-band graphic EQ, a switchable solo mode, and more. You can also run the Express 5:25+ at three different power levels (5W/15W/25W), so it's easy to dial just the right headroom for any situation, whether you're playing live or in the studio. Bottom line, you get an amp that's ready to perform as hard as you do with the Mesa/Boogie Express 5:25+ head.
Mesa/Boogie Express 5:25+ 1 x 12" Tube Head Amplifier at a Glance:
Enhanced clean mode sounds amazing
The original Express has a great-sounding clean mode, but the redesigned clean mode in the Express 5:25+ head has more sparkle in the highs along with a more open, fluid lows. As an added bonus, the signal to noise ratio has been significantly reduced too. That means you'll always get a rich and vibrant clean sound, especially important when you're recording with the Express 5:25+ in the studio.
Even more power options to help you get the perfect tone
You can run the Express 5:25 at 5-, 15-, or 25-watts, for three completely different flavors of tone. Use the 5W mode to get Class A cranked-amp tones at civilized volume levels from just one power tube. The 15W mode gives you a bit more headroom and flavor, using two tubes in a Class A push-pull configuration. Or enjoy the higher headroom and enhanced dynamics of the 25W mode, using two power amp tubes in a Class A/B configuration. You'll be amazed at the tonal variety you get from these different power modes.
Included 4-button footswitch will enhance your performances
Updated features requires an updated footswitch to go along with them. The Mesa/Boogie Express 5:25+ head comes with a 4-button footswitch for control over Channels, Reverb, EQ, and Solo. The Solo mode, not found on the original Express, lets you pre-set the perfect amount of volume boost for featured parts, and lets you toggle it directly from the footswitch. It's the perfect way to make a solo stand out, or simply add some extra dynamic interest to your performances.

Chasing tone? Here's your answer!!
by Erik from North of BostonI've owned a lot of boutique amplifiers and this one really does it all. Playing through a Dr. Z 2x10 cab. There are times when I'm not feeling my tone and this amp's modes and power settings allow yo... read more [+]u to get what you are looking for without changing amps. It's all in there. Great for low through high volume settings. It does have a lot of knobs and switches but I find it really, really easy to hit a switch or turn a know and get just what I'm looking for. Never had that before with one amp. Great job Mesa Boys! close [-]

by Mark from CTI always loved the sound of the EL tubes over the 6L's. So when I found out (never knew) that Mesa made some amps with the EL's I thought I would give this amp a try.

I was looking for something ... read more [+]small to gig with, but with some useable features.
Well it has enough volume for sure. I play in a classic / modern rock band with another guitarist, bass and drums.
Just put the amp though its first band practice and it passed with flying colors with plenty more room to go volume wise.
I setteled on "blues" as my clean channel, and crunch as my main distortion channel.
The crunch sounds great for classic rock tunes and cleans up nicely with the guitars volume when you need just a ittle less gain.
To me clean is clean and the clean channel is just fine and takes OD pedals very well. So its easy to get yourself 3 channels ou of this amo with ease.
What really sold me on this amp was the quality. Way beyond any amp I have ever owned, and I have been playing 30+ years now.
If you are debating on this amp and maybe think it won't have enough power to keep up with a band, forget about that and pick one up.
Being able to change the power tubes with out any bias adjustment is another huge plus.
Great job by Mesa!
Thank you Sweetwater for another great piece of equipment shipped fast and with great customer service! close [-]
