Powerful new EQ version adds our classic Five Band Graphic EQ and footswitchable HI/LO performance Modes featuring separate OUTPUT LEVEL controls to the already versatile FLUX-DRIVE package for increased shaping power and enhanced stylistic versatility.

The reception for the FLUX-DRIVEs fat, smooth, expressive gain has been outstanding among Artists and players alike, and with critical praise backing that up around the globe, it was an obvious recipient for the enhanced power of our Five Band EQ. Introducing the FLUX-FIVE overdrive, a supercharged version of our popular FLUX-DRIVE that features a shrunk-to-size version of our classic Five Band Graphic EQ and new added versatility thanks to footswitchable HI/LO performance Modes. The LO Gain Mode is the original FLUX-DRIVE in every way and now on this wider platform a new higher gain version of this soulful sound appears in the HI Mode. The Graphic EQ allows the popular V-Curve EQ setting to be applied to its layers of thick gain creating a huge, wide Heavy Rock or Metal sound that still retains the FLUXs warm character. The original TREBLE and BASS rotary EQ controls can be used to dial in global enhancements and the combination of the two EQ styles produces signature sounds for any genre.

The Graphic EQ can be applied to both HI and LO Gain Modes enabling you to have a global EQ curve or it can be applied to either gain Mode separately allowing you to have two preset sounds with different EQ shapes and gain signatures to switch between. A HI TRIM pot allows the volume level of HI to be adjusted in relation to the original LO (FLUX-DRIVE) Mode. However you choose to utilize all this potential, the warm rich FLUX-FIVE overdrive is sure to inspire you and bring out your best.

Mesa Boogie nailed the 5 band EQ idea a long time ago. Any more, it would be too complicated to get quick good results. Any less and it would be only a glorified bass/treble control. Really good tone shaping. 99% of settings are useable. The basic crunch overdrive seems to nail that sound. The over-the-top overdrive setting seems too much. I can run the crunch setting into a tube crunch amp and get a really hot sound that is useable. Too much gain and it gets more musically unusable as you go off the deep end. So this device has superb EQ and crunch. Easy to dial in and simple easy good reliable footswitch on and off. It has to work every time on stage and it does.

This might not be ideal for players looking for a transparent overdrive, but it's great for dialing in a smooth tone with single coils and a clean amp. The 5-band EQ is my favorite feature.
