In Stock!

This 1 x 12" Combo Amp is Great for Studio and Stage Alike!

If you thought the Mesa/Boogie Express 5:25 combo amplifier couldn't get any better, meet the re-designed Express 5:25 Plus 1 x 12" tube combo amp. The plus means Mesa/Boogie made some major enhancements to the Express 5:25 to give it an even better clean voice, a sweet 5-band graphic EQ, a switchable solo mode, and more. You can also run the Express 5:25 Plus at three different power levels (5 watts, 15 watts, and 25 watts) so it's easy to dial in the perfect amount of 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 Plus tube combo amplifier.

Mesa/Boogie Express 5:25 Plus 1 x 12" Tube Combo Amplifier at a Glance:
  • Enhanced clean mode sounds amazing
  • Even more power options to help you get the perfect tone
  • Included 4-button footswitch will enhance your performances
Enhanced clean mode sounds amazing

The original Express combo has a great-sounding clean mode, but the redesigned clean mode in the Express 5:25 Plus combo amp 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, which is especially important when you're recording with the Express 5:25 Plus in the studio.

Even more power options to help you get the perfect tone

You can run the Express 5:25 Plus at 5, 15, or 25 watts for three completely different flavors of tone. Use the 5-watt mode to get Class A cranked-amp tones at civilized volume levels from just one power tube. The 15-watt mode gives you a bit more headroom and flavor, using two tubes in a Class A push-pull configuration. Or you can enjoy the higher headroom and enhanced dynamics of the 25-watt 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 require an updated footswitch to go along with them. The Mesa/Boogie Express 5:25 Plus combo amp comes with a 4-button footswitch for control over channels, reverb, EQ, and solo. The solo mode, not found on the original Express combo, 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.

Mesa Express 5:25 Combo

This amp is amazing! We have 7 amps in our house and this one is, by far, the best. Jazz, Rock, Blues, you name it; this amp can do it all.

Wow and more Wow

Great tone - and I mean really great. I was told that these are a bit difficult to find the sound you may want but I really didn't have much trouble - the tones were in many ways quite intuitive. I was also told that you can leave the pedal board behind - and that is true. Best amp I have ever played.
