FYI My revitalized Express 5:25 1x10 is even better now that I added an MXR 6-band EQ to the effects return...so between the new Tone Tubby 40/40 and a fresh set of tubes, plus the EQ, I can shape all kinds of tone out of this thing, especially the top 3 (Clean. Crunch, Blues). I had heard the onboard EQ on the Plus series wasn't all that effective, so while I wait for a used 1x12 to appear online I'm pretty happy with this little 1x10 rig.

Great to hear!

Not sure who told you the Express + EQ is not that effective. I can tell you from experience it completely changes the versatility of the + amps. It makes a huge difference.

Yep I've had one on my pedal board for 5 yrs - better than the Mesa 5 band EQ imo :mrgreen:
