Re: 5:25+ Speaker Suggestions

I ended up with a seismic 2x12 cab (iffy build, but usable) and I got a well broken in V30 (England) to go with my c90 Initial impression is WOW... sounds great to me Even clean, infinite sustain with my newly acquired '89 Les Paul Custom Both at low and high volumes, it's EXACTLY what I was looking...

Re: Noisy gain channels on 5:25

All of the distortion channels - blues, crunch and burn - on my 5:25 are very noisy, especially at higher gain levels. They're much noisier than any pedal I've used. Is this normal? Are you referring to hiss? My 5:25+ has a bit too much hiss in it, IMO. I swapped V1 and V2 with the Mesa SPX7a tubes...

Help me choose a 12" speaker for my 525+

Re: 5:25 Clean channel - Isn't clean!

Plus 1 for back off the vol a tad.....I love how this cleans up the crunch and blues channels as well and allows you to dial in the drive precisely. Cleaner with P90's than hb's min you, but both respond very well

Re: 5:25+ Speaker Suggestions

I recently picked up a 5:25 + head with a boogie cab and mc-90. Need to break in the speaker, but so far I love the sounds. Cannot get a bad sound out of it with my custom tele with SD P90's. Humbuckers seem bit more difficult to dial in, but so far I'm loving this combo. I closed tha back of the ca...
