Mesa Boogie Express Plus 5:50 Combo - Tasmanian Blackwood & Wicker


Mesa Boogie

Usually, we like to go by the old adage, "If it isn't broken, don't fix it."  Well, this time we'd be wrong!  Mesa has updated their very popular Express lineup to the new Express Plus.  For those of you familiar with the Express 5:25 and 5:50, here are the new features:

The new Express Plus amplifiers feature FIVE exciting new features that bring them even closer to the flagship status of Mesa's award-winning MARK V.  Check out what puts the PLUS in the NEW Express 5:25+ :

1)  Legendary 5-Band Graphic Equalizer! - Sliders are added alongside the original PRESET Contour Controls allowing you to footswitch or auto-assign the 5 Band SLIDERS or the PRESET Control in each Channel.

2)  Improved CLEAN Mode - that has more sparkle in the highs and warm, breathing lows – Plus a significantly better signal to noise ratio.

3)  Patented Multi-Watt Channel Assignable Power! - Both Express Plus models allow you to run the output tubes in your choice of three different wattage ratings per Channel (2x6L6 = 5/25/50), each with it’s own tone-spawning Operating Class and Wiring Configuration!

Choose from:
1 power tube operating in pure Class A Single-Ended, producing 5 Watts
2 tubes operating in pure Class A Push-Pull, producing 25 Watts
2 tubes operating in Mesa’s proprietary Dyna-Watt™ Class A/B power, producing 50 Watts

4)  Performance Enhancing SOLO Control - Provides an additional footswitchable Master Output control that allows you to preset the perfect amount of volume boost to showcase featured parts and trigger it on the fly.

5)  4-Button Footswitch – Instant access to Channels, Reverb, EQ & Solo
