If there's one thing you'll never be without when you've got the Custom Mark 5:25, it's choice. A dual channel design means it's perfectly suited to, well, pretty much any guitarist who's looking for top quality sound. Both channels feature three individual, distinctive voices inspired by some of Mesa Boogie's most iconic Mark Series amps.
Channel one is the ultimate in low-gain versatility. From crystal-clear clean tones to brooding, mid-range overdrives, any low-gain sound is possible. Its three voices are 'Clean', 'Fat', and 'Crunch'. The 'Clean' does pretty much exactly what it says - pristine clean tones. The 'Fat' voice is an extension of this, giving you thicker, richer clean sounds. They've been taken straight from the Mesa Boogie Mark V amplifier. Meanwhile, the 'Crunch' voice will give you a stunning, vintage overdrive - and the low 25 watt power lets you get the sound of EL84 valves being pushed to clip, but at volume levels that won't split your eardrums.
If you're looking for a range of high-gain tones, then channel two is where you'll want to be. It's here that you'll find 'MK.IIC', 'MK.IV', and 'Xtreme' voices. The first two voices, both inspired by classic Mesa Boogie amps as their names suggest, are ideal for lead tones. The former is sharper and more cutting, while the 'MK.IV' is a little thicker. And then it all gets super-modern with the 'Xtreme' mode. High gain, a fast attack, sensational note articulation, and supreme clarity all come together to create the ultimate, flexible high-gain voice. Whatever your needs, the Custom Mark 5:25 has you covered.
Take complete control of your guitar's tone. The Mesa Boogie Custom Mark 5:25 Head features the legendary 5-band graphic EQ. Providing - you guessed it - five different parameters for you to tweak your sound, you can mould your guitar's voice to suit whatever frequency you're playing at. This is the ultimate toolbox for getting your instrument to sound exactly the way you want it.
Quite literally. That's because the Custom Mark 5:25 features switchable power for each channel. So finding the right amount of overdrive or headroom is made incredibly easy. You can choose from the lower output 10 watt mode, or the maximum 25 watts. Superbly functional, this is ideal for players who love a bit of genre hopping.
If you can't be bothered wiring up to a cab, then you've got the solution built in to the Mesa Boogie Mark 5:25. It includes their fantastic CabClone DI. This cab simulator lets you run straight from the rear panel of the amp to a desk with the authentic sound and feel of a classic Mesa Boogie speaker cab. You can tweak the sonic profile of the simulator too, as it gives you options for closed back or open back sound, as well as ground or lift.
If you do decide you want a traditional cab instead of using DI, then you'll struggle to find a better suited cabinet than the Mesa Boogie 1x12 Mini Recto Slant cab included in this package. Its single 12'' speaker is masterful at communicating your guitar's sound with supreme tonal balance. Bass, mid, and treble frequencies all sound full and superbly rich. As an added bonus, the marine-grade Baltic birch construction means the cab is supremely durable and rugged - totally ready for life on the road.
