Why Are Mark Vs So Expensive?

Post by spdavey » Wed Jun 06, 2018 3:53 pm

I have owned several Boogies, including a Mark III. I have always been interested in owning the V over the years but the prices continue to climb. Is this amp worth the cost? I would love to get some feedback!

They are great amps that can do a lot of sounds. They have 9 seperate pre amps and selectable wattage. I own one and love it. I also love in Australia so I probably paid a lot more than you would. But yes I think they are worth it.

They are in line with other amps of similar quality , and some might say a great value for what it can do.
Look on the used market that can be had for some killer deals
