Mesa Boogie Mark Five: 35 Head

Add to Wish List
The new MARK FIVE: 35, in both traditional compact Boogie 1x12 Combo and 19" Head formats, provides a greatest hits collection of Mesa Boogie's renowned Mark Series circuits from 3 decades. The new MARK FIVE: 35 features 2 Independent Channels, 6 Modes (include Clean, Fat, Crunch, Mark IIC+, Mark IV and Xtreme), Channel Independent Solo & Built-in CabClone.

This all-tube amplifier combines the power of the MARK FIVE preamp with Mesa's exclusive Dyna-Watt 4xEL84 power section, creating a mid-power MARK amp of unprecedented horsepower with ultra portability, clip-ability and high-speed, tactile expressiveness. The harmonic complexity and lushness combined with the higher, tighter Bass frequencies EL84s impart creates a whole new sound. Brighter, tighter, more shredding in the top end, a bit more forgiving in feel and exceedingly more clip-able, the FIVE: 35 is right on time.

To further bolster its stage-ready resume, Mesa Boogies has added a Channel Independent SOLO feature, a long-spring tank for the all-tube Reverb, the complete set of Voicing Choices from CabClone with the addition of the VINTAGE voicing mode to its on-board DI Output, and an upgraded Footswitch for access to the new footswitchable choices.

Features:

MID/BOOST
You'll find added tone shaping in Channel 1 via the MID/BOOST feature on the MARK FIVE: 35. From 0 to 5 on the MID/BOOST you will find the normal range of a standard MID control in a condensed form. From 5 to 10 on the MID/BOOST, a wonderful graduation of overdrive possibilities unfolds, enhancing gain over a broad midrange spectrum and increasing the versatility of each of the 3 Modes in Channel 1. CLEAN and FAT give way to furry and howling, while CRUNCH rolls past Classic Rock to unleash Metal rhythms and molten layers of harmonic complexity for Lead work.

Boogie EQ
The legendary BOOGIE 5-Band Graphic EQ provides the ultimate in sonic flexibility. Dial your sound in with the standard Tone controls and if further shaping is desired, employ the targeted power of the 5-Band Graphic EQ and tweak as you see fit.

SOLO CONTROLS
Independent SOLO Controls for each Channel offer an additional volume level that you can call up during performance using the MARK FIVE: 35 Footswitch.

HEADPHONE OUTPUT
The MARK FIVE: 35 includes a HEADPHONE Output for personal enjoyment of the amplifier when it is not possible or convenient to play through a speaker.

CABCLONE D.I.
The MARK FIVE: 35 upgrades include additions to the on-board CABCLONE D.I. feature, which now offers three classic cabinet simulated VOICING Modes and gives you the full feature set of the stand-alone CABCLONE D.I. minus the OUTPUT control.

I own a peavey 6505 120 Watt Head, so playing at home is not really possible. I wanted something that could really do it all: gig, play at home, record easily, excellent cleans, crushing gain and portability without sacrificing anything. A lot of lunchbox heads nowadays miss the mark (no pun intended) when compared to their bigger brothers. And I have to say that the mini-Mark V’s really do not. You can go check A-B videos all over the internet (mostly with the V:25), and you’ll see that they stack up insanely well to the full-on Mark V papa. I’m extremely impressed by everything. Now, I had some uncharacteristic problems with mine when I got it (tubes flaring up in low-wattage modes). It was chalked up to be just some sub-par wiring on the main board on Mesa’s part. It had me concerned, but I haven’t had any issues with it since the repair (about four months ago). I love it!

This amp has changed my life. I have a basement jam room and forever have been in search of that perfect tone. Now I have found you! The ability to run a wonderful Clean/Fat on channel 1 and switch over to the most menacing and thick chug with Extreme on channel 2 has blown me away. The solo feature really cuts through on both channels... Worth the extra 300 bucks over the 25. This amp is loud but the 30 watt channel is noticeably more robust to the 25 or 10 watt options. I am fortunate to have added this to a fine collection of McQuade gear...take some time with it and the Mark V 35 will reward you.

I've played and owned Many fine tube amps over the yrs and avoided boggles like the plague because of all the knobs and switches on them, I don't need to be fiddling around trying to dial in my tone with something like that, thanks but no tnx. Few weeks ago, I had someone mention how much they loved their Boogie so I thought why not let's check em out. I research Everything heavily before laying my dollars over and after extensive reviews and all the you tube clips I could find on the Mark V-25, I thought man I gotta have a closer look. Turned out the V25 I initially thought I wanted ended up being the V-35 I test drove. Thankfully I compared both a V-35 combo and head and custom 2X12 cab I already owned and there was no comparison which stands to reason. I knew I didn't want to lug a cumbersome 2X12 cab around so I looked into Mesa's Wide Compact single 12" open and closed back. I A/B'ed both cabs at same time and the open back suited me better for classic rock and blues although they both sounded great. Mesa's aren't cheap for good reason and their team incorporating 6 different legendary Mesa presets into this one amp plus the option of 10/25/35 watt and also EQ and amazing foot switchable options, there's absolutely no tone this amps not capable of delivering. Up for sale is my Killer Swart STR, vintage blackface Princeton reverb, Custom Vibrolux, and all 3 of my pedal boards Except my One Delay pedal. This Mesa Mark V-35 head and Mesa Wide Openback single 12 has Far Exceeded my expectations. What a tone monster with All the power I'll ever need. Thanks to the team at both London L&M locations for working with me and preciously why I don't shop Anywhere else for my gear. Go get a Mesa and prove to yourself their not as over complicated as we've told ourselves they are. You might be as thrilled as I am.
