Boogie Quote.

"The Mark Five: 35 represents the next step in Mark Series Tone as well as the addition of mini-Mark TONE in a 1x12 Boogie combo format! Mesa’s time-proven four EL-84 based Dyna-Watt power section delivers 100% gig-able Clean headroom and additional punch in High Gain sounds while adding width and bigger-iron mojo to the 10 & 25 watt settings.

The same great modes, features, layout and Tones that make the Mark Five: 25™ one of Mesa’s most popular amps just got a power upgrade and some new features. To further bolster the new MARK FIVE: 35's stage-ready resume, we’ve added a Channel Independent SOLO Feature, a long-spring tank for the all-tube Reverb, the complete set of Voicing Choices from our CABCLONE™ with the addition of the VINTAGE setting to its on-board DI Output and an upgraded Footswitch for access to the new footswitchable choices. This new blend of perfect clip-ablity on-demand & exciting dynamic headroom when you need it creates the most adaptable MARK amplifier yet!

For more in-depth detail and tone tips on the preamp modes, tone controls, graphic EQ and, watch the original Mark Five: 25 Official Demo Video where we have sound samples and tons of great info that applies directly to the Mark Five: 35:"

Nice.

Would've preferred this amp to be a fully featured, 3 channel Mark V with the 35w EL84 power section.

Either way, this amp will find fans.
Ignore the hype and trust your ears. Play more, buy less = better tone.

I like that its not a fully featured mark. I am curious to hear some experts opinions on it compared to the 25 with the bigger transformer and dyna watt power. Especially at home playing volumes.

Either way I cant imagine any existing 25 owners upgrading, but I could imagine V owners down grading because they dont need the range of features the full size mark has but dont like the losing so much ooommfff by going to the 2 el84's in the 25.

WTF!!! Here we were joking about them making them in all the different wattages the other week and appears their doing it!

I wonder if they will do a revision on the big mark V to give it cab clone and the mid boost knob? Or a proper beefy iic+? mode?

Didn't really expect this, but did expect a combo. Probably a nice niche area between the Mark V and the five 25 though. Well played Mesa, well played.

I want to know how this compares to the Mark V:25 for the iic+ mode. And I hope that the big daddy Mark V eventually gets a proper beefy iic+ and crunch mode as well.

I think this was a "correction" of the 25W version. They inclueded the solo boost, the most important feature.
And increased to 35W and some more tubes just to say "oh, it is not the same amplifier fixed"...

I have the 25W and I really miss the solo boost.

I am seriously tempted. The combo + a Thiele would probably rock. Still, I really like my RA100, both for the saturated mids and the 3 channels. I will say that I thought my V:25 sounded better than the full-size V I just sold. But in the end I think the Mark tone just isn't for me :(

Funny, my first thought was "I'd be standing in line waiting to buy this if it was 2x 6L6 instead. But I like the way you think! That would be smokin! I still think I will hold out for a full Mark V instead, but that hardwood combo is certainly very cool!

And yes, this should be a runaway hit. All the guys who said they loved the Mini but need just a bit more juice, now can get it.

So without an audition, on principle alone, two thumbs up.

Thank you Mesa Boogie for tanking the value of my less than a year old V:25. :evil:

I really don't appreciate being a test market so that I and any others who bought your "new" product can take it in the ass when you make what we spent our hard earned money on obsolete less than a f#%$#ing year later.

I doubt it will make much difference to the 25 value, the only thing I would really want from the 35 is the solo boost, but not the extra weight. I have been waiting to sell a couple of amps to get the 25 and that's what I'm still thinking. If the combo had been under 40lbs I'd probably do that but I really like the idea of the 16lb head. What would have been cool is a 4 tube class a (a 20 watt mode???).

I'm still trying to figure this 35W .

In terms of size, it is much closer to the Mark V than the 25W, which compromises the portability.
But when it comes to sound, I would say that is almost equal to 25W.

I still think that could only have included the boost in 25W, keeping the size....

A rackmount version as well? I think I may have to get this!

I like the size, weight and features. I'm a little concerned that they used 1/2" thick plywood for the combo cab. They said that and the rear mounted cab make it more resonant. Sounds like cost and weight savings to me.

Still, this is the amp that I had hoped the Mark V 25 would be.

Cool amp.

Wondering what the price point will be.

The 25 is currently 1399. Pretty sure it was 1299 when I bought.

Wonder if they will now drop the 25 back to 1299.

Really curious what the price of the 35 will be.

Given my 25 sits perfectly on top of the Fryette power station (to the point they look like they were made for each other) I can't justify moving to the 35.

Cool amp nonetheless
