Mesa Boogie Express 5:25 Plus 25-watt Tube Head in black.

These are a killer amp in a small, very portable package.

Great tone at any volume, don’t be fooled by the size, this amp packs in the features and is capable of a very wide range of tones.

Collector owned, never taken out of the house and barely been played. Excellent condition.

Comes as pictured with slip cover and also original footswitch which I did not get in the pics.


Mesa/Boogie Express 5:25 Plus Tube Head Amplifier at a Glance:

  • Enhanced clean mode sounds amazing
  • Even more power options to help you get the perfect tone
  • Included 4-button footswitch will enhance your performances

Enhanced clean mode sounds amazingThe original Express has a great-sounding clean mode, but the redesigned clean mode in the Express 5:25 Plus head has more sparkle in the highs along with a more open, fluid lows. As an added bonus, the signal to noise ratio has been significantly reduced, too. That means you’ll always get a rich and vibrant clean sound, which is especially important when you’re recording with the Express 5:25 Plus in the studio.

Even more power options to help you get the perfect toneYou can run the Express 5:25 at 5, 15, or 25 watts for three completely different flavors of tone. Use the 5-watt mode to get Class A cranked-amp tones at civilized volume levels from just one power tube. The 15-watt mode gives you a bit more headroom and flavor, using two tubes in a Class A push-pull configuration. Or enjoy the higher headroom and enhanced dynamics of the 25-watt mode, using two power amp tubes in a Class A/B configuration. You’ll be amazed at the tonal variety you get from these different power modes.

Included 4-button footswitch will enhance your performancesUpdated features requires an updated footswitch to go along with them. The Mesa/Boogie Express 5:25 Plus head comes with a 4-button footswitch for control over channels, reverb, EQ, and solo. The solo mode, not found on the original Express, lets you pre-set the perfect amount of volume boost for featured parts, and lets you toggle it directly from the footswitch. It’s the perfect way to make a solo stand out, or simply to add some extra dynamic interest to your performances.
