Express Plus 5:50 output transformer size

Post by jcourtjr » Tue Mar 28, 2017 7:50 am

I noticed that the output transformer on this is somewhat small. I asked Mesa but all I got was that Randy and the engineers carefully pick their componenents etc...

I have a Marshall JMP 50 and its ouptut trannie is twice as large. Anyone know the scoop? Generally it is said that larger transformers = better but a few people have said otherwise. I do notice the mark v 90 transformer looks a lot bigger.

You shouldn't worry about that. My 5:25 non plus also has undersized trafos but it sounds great and it can really take a beating so don't worry.
