Take the 5:50, running 6L6's out of Fullerton straight to the studio for the ultimate big sounding, little amp. The Mesa Boogie 5:50 50-watt guitar amp head features four inspiring modes from two opposite personalities spread across two fully independent channels. If Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde had to share one platform, this would be it.
For the traditionalist, select Clean and Blues for your two footswitchable sounds. Or, if you're addicted to Gain, choose Crunch and Burn. Then stand back as the well-mannered soul of Dr. Jeckyll morphs into the maniacal Mr. Hyde, hardcore beast. Most important is the classic authenticity of all these iconic tones. No matter what your stylistic destination, the Express 5:50 will take you there. Fast.
Up front, that number "5" indicates the low power, single-ended magic of pure Class A. The "50" refers to the rated push-pull output. Together, these make up Mesa's Duo Class power circuit, the first to offer both single-ended and push-pull configurations in the same amplifier.
Each channel on the Mesa Boogie head is further equipped with its own Contour depth control for added shaping that's both assignable and footswitchable. Used subtly, Contour adds a halo of depth and chime to gleaming clean sounds. Higher Contour settings, especially in Crunch and Burn, take you into Recto turf, tight, huge and menacing.
Two Incredible Channels, Four Fully Evolved Modes give you a boarding pass to all the classic guitar styles. The pristine, blooming Clean and tight, grinding Crunch cover the rhythm territories in Channel 1 while Channel 2 roams the wide open spaces of soloing with howling Blues and soaring Burn modes.
Both Channels on the Mesa Boogie 5:50 tube amp head feature Assignable / Footswitchable Contour controls that pack the sonic power of a multi-band EQ into one simple control. Blend this dynamic, bouncy circuit with the musically rich Tone controls for a sound far bigger than you've ever heard from a combo.
External Switch Jacks
Switch "tracks" remotely with the External Switch jacks where Channels, Reverb and the Contour controls can be patched to an external master switching system for remote access. The Express 5:50 head's transparent series Effects Loop handles the interface to all outboard processing.
