I own a Express 5:50+ and like it a lot.
First of all, I love the Clean on CH1.
AND the Crunch (on CH1 also).

Swapping my Cleans over to Blues is OK, but not as lovely as the Clean-Mode itself...
Furthermore, I like to layer Notes with a looper and use FX a lot (Strymon Timeline and Mobius).
To my ears, the Express tends to get a little flubby after the second Looplayer.

Occasionally, I could get a Mark V Head.
This would solve my Crunchproblem and I think, more headroom in the powersection would help with the flubbyness...

My problem is:
I can´t afford the Mark V without selling the Express, so I can´t compare them side by side.

Is the Cleanchannel on the Mark V as good as the Express Clean?
In this Video, a Mesa employee explains, that the Cleanmode of the Mark V is from the Mark IV and the Fatmode ist from the Lonestar:

For the Express+, Mesa advertises, it would incorporate "Elements of our highly regarded Lonestar", but for the Mark V, they don´t (except for that video).
If the guy on the video is right, why don´t they mention this on the description of the Mark V?
