Special Order

This Ultra-versatile Mesa/Boogie Has it All!

The Mesa/Boogie Mark V combo guitar amplifier will take you on a tonal journey through the company's illustrious history with some new capabilities thrown in. Whether you're craving the sound of the Mark I's high-gain cascading preamp or the fat, wide tone of the Mark IV, the Mark V delivers. At Sweetwater, we've been blown away by what this ultra-versatile guitar amp is capable of. The Mark V lets you dial up anything from tweed-like tones to British crunch to the highly coveted trademark Boogie overdrive. Featuring a 5-band EQ, Multi-Watt and Simul-Class power, and three channels of sonic mayhem, the Mesa/Boogie Mark V combo guitar amplifier will give you all of the clarity, crispness, and punch that you can handle!

Mesa/Boogie Mark V Combo Guitar Amplifier at a Glance:
  • Three channels give you plenty of sonic possibilities
  • Three voicings on each channel for even more tonal versatility
  • Graphic EQ provides you with a wide range of sound-shaping options
  • Multi-Watt and Simul-Class power let you control your amp's personality
Three channels give you plenty of sonic possibilities

The Mesa/Boogie Mark V combo guitar amplifier provides you with three channels of sonic possibilities. Channel one gives you a range of clean tones that blend vintage tube characteristics with a shimmery high end, resulting in a crystal-clear, boutique-like tone. Channel two is the right choice for when you're looking for a thick, throaty crunch with tight attack. Channel three gives you the iconic high-gain sound that became associated with players like John Petrucci, James Hetfield, and Kirk Hammett in the 1980s.

Three voicings on each channel for even more tonal versatility

In addition to the Mesa/Boogie Mark V combo guitar amplifier's three channels, you also get three distinct voicings for each channel that are controlled by a simple mini-toggle switch. In some cases, these voicings are related by style and give you important musical differences within a gain structure and sonic theme. In other cases, both gain and EQ are radically altered to achieve drastically different sounds. Make no mistake - you'll spend hours upon hours experimenting with different gain and tone control treatments while sifting through the Mark V's voicings, recreating some recognizable tones from Mesa/Boogie's past (and inventing some new ones of your own).

Graphic EQ provides you with a wide range of sound-shaping options

While the Mesa/Boogie Mark V combo guitar amplifier gives you standard tone controls, you also get a 5-band graphic EQ for even more sound-shaping. By using the Mark V's graphic EQ in conjunction with a high-gain sound, you'll be able to perfectly replicate the classic V curve that became a staple of heavy metal guitar tone in the 1980s. Each channel is fitted with a mini-toggle to turn the graphic EQ on or off. You can even make the EQ footswitchable!

Multi-Watt and Simul-Class power let you control your amp's personality

The Mesa/Boogie Mark V combo guitar amplifier lets you alter the amount (wattage) and type (configuration) of power each individual channel will be coupled with, giving you unprecedented control over the character and personality of your amp. Lowering the wattage of the Mark V decreases its headroom, making it easier to push it into overdrive. The Mark V is also wired so that it is capable of operating in both a Class A triode configuration and/or a Class A/B pentode configuration, depending on which wattage you select. You can use two power tubes to operate the Mark V in Class A mode at 10 watts, emphasizing even-order harmonics for a sweet tone with a soft, rich purring quality, or you can use two tubes running in A/B mode at 45 watts, emphasizing odd-order harmonics for a harsher sound. The best part, however, is that you can use four tubes running in both Class A and Class A/B modes simultaneously at 90 watts, giving you the best of both worlds!

Mesa/Boogie Mark V Combo Guitar Amplifier Features:
  • 3 channels give you plenty of sonic possibilities
  • 3 voicings on each channel for even more tonal versatility
  • Graphic EQ provides you with a wide range of sound-shaping options
  • Multi-Watt power gives you variable wattage control
  • Simul-Class power lets you alter the amp's power configuration
  • True hard-bypass switch removes FX loops, output level, and solo level controls from the signal path
The Mesa/Boogie Mark V combo guitar amplifier: an all-tube combo with a stellar legacy and serious tone!
