Re: Express 5:25+ woes

If your combo is on the floor, get it up! I use this for my LC-15 Laney Combo. It will hold a Fender twin with ease. : On-Stage Amp Stand

When playing with the band, try rolling you bass setting back a number or two.


You have a lot of good advice here. Good luck!!

Re: Extension Cabs for Express 5:50 PLUS

I've got the Mesa 2x12 Vertical. I love it! I had a Mesa 2x12 horizontal, but it put the head too low to the ground.

The wide body 1x12 would be cool with the combo, depending on how much air you need to move.

Re: Which Tubes Replace 12AX7 for LESS Gain in my 5.25

You could always call Doug at Dougs tubes.

Tell him what you're trying to do, what tone you're trying to get and such. Follow his advice.

There's several of us here who are rocking Dougs tubes in our Mesas. I love what he did for both my amps. :D

YMMV!

Re: Express 5:50+ ....nothing but issues

Sounds like you need to find a new repair shop, not a replacement amp!

Kind of sounds like its actually a small problem, nothing major.

Re: 5:25+ Speaker Suggestions

interesting ideas folks!

I can't wait for one of you to try the Eminence EJ1250.

Eric's Youtube Video on the EJ1250

In the early 90s, I had a JCM-800 with a 1960AV. I loved that combination! The V30s sounded great! But like most of you, I'm just not diggin' the V30s with the Express.

Re: 5:50 Express Plus Vs Marshall JVM205H

Most of the tones you mentioned come from amps with 6L6/EL34 tubes. EL84s are a different animal. 84s are killer tubes, my Laney uses them. So I'd say you should go with a 5:50+. For the heavy metal, something like an Analogman modded Boss HM2 would be in order. Gilmore, then as now, derives a lot o...

Re: 5:50 tube suggestions

You don't have to use Mesa only tubes IF you buy from the right source. I bought mine new tubes from Doug at Dougs tubes. Send him an email and tell him the sound you're after, then follow his advice. I bought my 5:50+ new. I replaced all the tubes with less than an hour on them. Doug's advice did t...

Looks fantastic! You should be really proud of that!!





I'd love to change the look of my Mesa cab to match my black and cream 5:50+ head!
