    yeah the Express amps are normally great. I would be all over one again. I ended up selling my 5:25 plus so I could get myself something with a little more girth. so I traded it for a Triple Rec. that was a bit of a mistake in the long run... but whatever. its all good. I wouldnt say no to another express. I really liked the Burn Channel and the clean channel while using the graphic eq

    For what it's worth, I love my 5:50+. Really great amp that provides so many tones it's uncanny.

    yeah I have been very impressed with my 5:25+. The clean channel is really nice. I find myself using it and pedals to get just about anything I can dream of. Sad to see them being discontinued. I wonder what will take their place.

    I been looking at those, just looking! I don't know much about mesa and never touched one but I liked the features on that amp I just don't know what it and mesa's other amps (lonestar, recto etc) sound like and what would fit for me. In the future that is for I have way too many amps right now.

    I bought a used 5/25 and it is a wonderfully versatile amp. Sad to hear they are being discontinued. Mine is the original not the plus and it’s a keeper. I too wonder why they are not going to make them. Really great amp for gigs and recording. If I had the extra cash I’d buy another one without hesitation.

    I played a 5:25 while I was looking at a used Mark IV. I went with the Mark IV, but I must say I was very impressed with the 5:25!

    i would guess the Mark Five 25 and 35 are being considered as upgraded in between the express and the big Mark Five, i chose the Express 5-50 plus over the Mark Five because i liked the features better than the Mark Five. i was hoping to get an Express 5-25 plus at some point in the future, but i guess i could do a Mark Five 25 or 35 !

    Could it means that the Mark VI is coming?
