Mesa/Boogie Mark Five: 25 Tube Amplifier Head at a Glance:
- Channel one takes you from clean to crunch
- Channel two brings you legendary Mesa lead tone
- Built-in Cabclone – achieve awesome tone without a speaker cab
Channel one takes you from clean to crunch
The Mark Five: 25’s first channel is a rhythm player’s sonic playground with clean, fat, and crunch modes serving up an amazingly wide range of tone. Use the Multi-Watt power switch to flip between 10-watt mode for more breakup at lower volumes or 25-watt mode for more headroom and a different playing response. The powerful mid-boost control is all you need to push your tone to the front of any mix.
Channel two brings you legendary Mesa lead tone
Three switchable styles give the Mark Five: 25 everything you need for epic lead tones. Choose from Mark IIC+, Mark IV, and Xtreme modes for three distinct flavors of sonic aggression with switchable 10-watt/25-watt operation for adjustable response and power amp breakup. From smooth and liquid to roaring and edgy, the Mark Five: 25’s lead channel gives you more sonic flexibility than most 2-channel amps provide in total.
Built-in Cabclone – achieve awesome tone without a speaker cab
The Mark Five: 25 packs an indispensable tool for gigging guitarists and an outstanding studio tool, too: a built-in Cabclone internal amp load and speaker simulator. It provides an incredibly realistic speaker-emulated direct output to plug right into the sound system or recording chain. You can still use it in conjunction with your favorite speaker cab, but gigging guitarists at Sweetwater also know what it’s like lugging a speaker cab along with the rest of your guitar rig. Ditch the speaker cab and just roll up to the gig with only your Mark Five: 25 and your guitar! You’ll be cutting down on stage volume, too, which will help give your band a tighter live sound.
