I've got an F50 and 5.50. They're both like it. I'm thinking of selling them both.

Tones are volumes. Turn them down and you've got no volume!

The reason I bought Boogie and not Fender is because I hate that glassy top end spike. Boogie don't do it. I like the Blackface sound without that glassiness that Boogie do. You get it by turning down the mid. And try using the contour too. It's a lot better than the Fender clean. It's rounder, warm...

Re: New mesa express! What pedals do you like with it?

+++ on the BB preamp. The built-in OD is much better than the majority of pedals but the BB preamp gives it some extra fullness that is just great for rock/blues. I haven't tried any metal pedals yet, the most metal of my pedals is the Vox Satchurator. Odd I know, since it is supposed to be "Joe Sa...

Re: New mesa express! What pedals do you like with it?

My F50 sounds great with pedals, I have got around 16 so far, but my 5.50 is too middly for them to sound good, I couldn't get a decent sound out of it. I am using my F50 with pedals for the od and ds sounds, and the 5.50 as either just an extention cab or for some crunch cleans, the better clean is...

Re: What Features would you like to see in a future Express?

Ha, no its on the 50 watt setting, try yours everybody, put the clean channel on clean and put the mid right down for a vintage Fender sound, then fingerpick. Its not loud enough for gigs, I mean unmiked with unmiked drums etc. My F50 is louder than my 5.50 on clean with the same settings BUT I fou...

Re: What Features would you like to see in a future Express?

The 5.50 is not a budget amp, they are 3 times the price of a Fender hot rod deluxe which is the standard guitar amp worldwide today. A budget guitar amp is a line 6 spider or a Peavey Bandit, the peavey bandit was really the standard every day amp in the 80's when valve amps were not really availab...

Re: Best distortion pedal?

The drive sounds are pretty useless to me on both my F50 and my 5.50. There are thousands of overdrives and distortions out there it depends what you want. The pedals sound better on the clean channel because the gain channels are eq'ed very middly to start with. Digitech make some great pedals whic...

Re: Express 5:50 feeds back with no instrument plugged in.

I had same problem, it was the valves, it doesn't matter if they are brand new from the shop, I was getting bad ones after bad ones brand new.

Re: Pete Cornish - His case against true bypass.

Pete Cornish is amazing, the systems he has built for the biggest names is just amazing, he's the best there is. If you use EMG's no amount of lead length makes any difference but with passive pickups it doesn't take much to chance the sound with ever foot of lead.

Re: Express 5:25. Buzz from speaker with certain notes.

I had a buzz everytime I hit an open A, I took it back to the shop, they told me it was normal, but tried to find out what it was, they couldn't.
Are you sure that it is coming through the speaker?

Re: Express Extension cabs... oh and a new guy saying hi...

Zilla were going to make me a 5.50 cab to the same specs, they even use the exact same coverings, and charge about 3 times less.
