After I bought my first Mesa/Boogie many years ago and had to untimely part with it, a part of me died inside! Now having reconnected with these beautiful amps once again, I could not be happier! So many modes/sounds/options to play with you will never need another amp. There are too many things that I would love to share with you. So this is all I will say. MK2 C+ CIRCUIT!!!! This is the reason I bought this beast, and I ended up with more than I dreamed!! Crank it up...way up!

This amp.. What can I say about it. I own the head version and I'm very happy I do. This amp can deliver everything, I won't even bother listing styles or artists this thing can nail because it can do it all. Between 3 channels each with 3 modes, 3 wattage settings and a tube setting on 45W for channels 1 and 2, there is a setting for everything. Plus the ability to swap power tubes is great. The build quality is amazing, every jack, switch and knob feels sturdy. It'll take abuse real well too - I've left it on for hours and hours on end with no issues. There's been times I've turned it on without having my cab plugged in and she still just chugs away (not that I would recommend that at all). All in all, this amp is worth the money. It is a little on the pricier side, but for what you get it's totally worth it.

great amp-not for every one though.it takes some time to dial in your sound.it has cascading gain stages.this is not like a marshall,where you can set the cookie cutter tone in a few minutes.this amp is more about articulation and if you want to create your own tone.it has alot of options and features...it can do it all from super clean jazz to just breaking blues to classic rock to metal.it is built very well and mesa have a great warranty and amazing customer service.i use a 2x12 mesa recto cab with vintage 30s .i aslo have a delay chorus and an overdrive.yes-channel two takes an overdrive so well,it became part of my setup for my main tone.when your dialing in a mesa it has to be done very carefully,just a small movement of say the bass or treble knob can change things alot. when i first started using it i thought wtf? i am not happy.but i spent some time with it and now i couldn't play without it...it is a true tone machine. I play in a covers band and need to recreate a large pallaet of tones and this amp can do that very well.they are not cheap...but you get what you pay for...if you want a pro amp from any real amp company expect to pay 3-4k...its just that simple.tone cost money! even a high end marshll like the JVM 410h is gonna cost near what a mark five will run you. good luck!

It was more than I wanted to spend but worth every penny. It takes some effort to dial in but it sounds amazing when setup. To really appreciate it, it needs to be tested with a band as it cuts through incredibly well and is very articulate. The sound is so good that I no longer use pedals, just plug straight in. It is hooked up with a with a 4x12 H&K cab with Celestion Greenbacks. I also have the cabclone.

I bought this head and I'm so pleased i can't believe it. Channel 1 is crystal clear,channel 2 is your Izzy Stradlin and if your a metal guy channel 3 is all you will ever need,tons and tons of tone options leaves your sound limitless. Save your pennies if you can't afford this now,well worth the wait and the price. I have found what i was looking for,thank-you.....MESA!!!!!!!!!

After playing for the past 15 years or more I have owned and played many amps both tube amps and solid state or digital. (Dont start me on those! lol) Anyway, I love my mark V. I paired it with a 2x12 rectifier cab and couldn't be happier. I am looking now to purchase a Mesa boogie lonestar for the EL84 tube setup. Its hard buting amps these days because most big manufactures are having them built over seas. Not Mesa! one of the small things that makes me feel even better. Mesa all the way!! m/ rock on!

The MKII C+ mode is dead on. I tried it and having owned a MKII C+ head is amazing. If you love M.O.P forward Metallica and any Dream Theater tones, this amp is it. I may have to sell my street bike to buy this amp.

If you're the sort of Guitarist that needs an incredibly versatile array of tones. The Mark V is for you. Recording with this amp is almost an honour. Incredibly easy to dial in the tone you want as well.
