Curious if anyone has any experience with the Mesa Express Series 5:50+ (plus). Or 5:25.
I used to own one of these (the non plus) years back, but it is long gone, and i owned many amp since. Blackface, Vintage, Vox, modern Fender, Swart, etc.
I have come full circle again, and picked up a used Express 5:50 Plus Model, with MC-90 Blackshadow speaker. All stock and great condition. Still under warranty which is a bonus.
Curious if any has had any experience with these, what the thoughts were, and if they had any tips and tricks on setting the tone and using using different modes or EQ shaping.
Again, i think this is a great amp and can cover a lot of ground. Very versatile for the different wattage selections as well 5/25/50. The 50 isn't really louder, just more headroom, and you can hear the difference for sure at low and high volume situations. I play mainly with a strat and it can get some nice blackface'ish tones as well as more modern mesa cleans, and some great blues.
I think the speaker is a great fit for this amp. I'm sure i could experiment, but i have a feeling Mesa selected this for some good reasons. I might try something might provide some tighter bass response, but for now it's going to stay stock.
