Mesa/Boogie Mark V Amplifier
Head, $1,999.00; 1x12 combo, $2,099.00
The Mark V is like a greatest-hits package for tone. It’s like having a faithful recreation of Mesa’s most legendary amplifiers—such as the Mark I, IIC+ and IV—packed into one amp, along with bonuses like all-new British-inspired circuits.
The Mark V features Mesa/Boogies’ patented Simul-Class power amp with Multi-Watt and Duo-Class technologies, which provide three power and three operating class options that are channel assignable via 10, 45 and 90 watts. Having this flexibility is like having three different amplifiers and being able to use the right amount of power for each musical application.
The Mark V has three fully independent channels, each with three modes, and a five-band graphic EQ that’s footswitchable and channel assignable. For total control of rhythm and lead volumes, the solo level and output level controls are footswitchable over all channels when activated. Finally, a true hard-bypass switch removes effect loops, output level and solo level controls from the signal path for true tube tone. If you’re looking for the best of Boogie tones, you won’t find a better collection than this.
