New mesa Express 5 25 and 5 50 plus models

So who is going to get one of these and does anyone know when they will be at stores for purchase? I have a 5 50 12-12 combo and I am wondering just how nice these new plus express models are going to be.

Re: Nos tubes 5:50

I changed out the V1 and V2 with NOS RCA12AX7A preamp tubes and my express 5 50 is better for it. Worth the money, I am happy with the tonal results and how it works with my single coil pickup guitars.

Mesa's SPAX7A preamp tube

Anyone used these and do you have to remove the rubber shield before putting them in the preamp slot? I am wondering if the heat of the preamp tube would melt the rubber shield on that tube.

Re: Upcoming changes to the Express series?

Make it take 6v6 tubes or 6l6 tubes, that would be nice.

I've been busy over the last year, things change

Let me see, I bought a vintage Fender 1966 Fender Deluxe Reverb, sold off my Two Rock Jet, My Mesa Boogie Mark V, and I just picked up a used Mesa Express 5 50 2-12 combo last week. I have not been on this forum since September 2011 I think, so forgive me if I ask all you express owners out there a ...

Re: I just got an ext. cab for my Mark V combo

[quote="auburnshredder"] So this is the "Thiele" cab? No, it's a widebody closed back ported 1x12 cab with the boogie logo C90 Black Shadow? Yes, it is and I know it's a new speaker that needs to be opened up, so once it does open I am sure the wow factor will be even more then it already is.

I just got an ext. cab for my Mark V combo

I special ordered a close back wide body ported 1x12 mesa cab, with the Boogie logo on it. It took about two months from placing the order to getting the cab. It was well worth the wait. I really changes the way the amp responds or at least I feel it does. Very pleased so far, giving that It's a new...

Dialing out that nasal sound in my amp

Probably my number 1 bitch with the mark v is how hard it is to dial in good tone. Everytime I switch guitars, I have to reshape the tone controls to get that guitar sounding good. I am wondering if I could take my amp to a professional amp tech and have something inside changed to get rid of that n...

Check the Phase inverter. It has a global effect.

Decided to try Mark V with EL 34's Today

I have owned my amp for a year and a half now. Today is the first time I installed EL 34's and tried them out for myself. Being used to using 6L6's, I am very familiar with that sound, so I wanted to see what the 34's had to offer. In all three channels, I liked the tonal response I am getting. I us...
