Great for Studio and Stage

Meet the re-designed Mesa Boogie Express 5:25 Plus 1 x 12" tube combo amplifier. An upgrade from the original 5:25, you can now run the Express 5:25 Plus at either 5 watts, 15 watts, or 25 watts, so it's easy to dial in the perfect amount of headroom for any situation. Sweetwater engineers love that feature for the studio. And there are many more upgrades giving you the features you need for an ultra-versatile amp. The Boogie Express 5:25 Plus is ready to perform as hard as you do.

Mesa/Boogie Express 5:25 Plus 1 x 12" Tube Combo Amplifier at a Glance:
  • Enhanced clean mode
  • Multiple power options to dial in your headroom
  • Mesa/Boogie's Warranty: The Best in the Business
Enhanced clean mode

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.

Multiple power options to dial in your headroom

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 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.

Mesa/Boogie's Warranty: One of the Best in the Business

Mesa Custom Order

This is one amp thats deserves all the accolades it gets in these reviews. I ordered mine from Mesa thru Sweetwater. It has a bubinga cabinet and wicker grill, looks great. The tone is exceptional. All 4 channels offer up a truly inspiring tone that needs no help from effect pedals. Just plug in and play and I'm sure you'll agree that there is something special going on here. Even though the price might seem out of bounds for most of us, the tone and versatility of this little beast is undeniable. If you order a prepared to wait for it. The first amp I received was not the one I ordered and the total wait time for the correct amp was about 5 months. But, totally worth it!

Light and packs a punch

This amp is fantastic! The usual Mesa/Boogie exceptional build quality in a lighter weight gig friendly package. More than enough power to blow anyone off the stage. Sustainforever. You don't need many pedals with this amp. Foot switch included with heavy duty pin connection. I also have a Mark 5 90 watt Mesa.

Mesa/Boogie 5:25 plus amp

Loud is the best. I keep it on 5w at home, but when I gig I go to 15w & blow everyone else out. Thanks to Bart Good.
