Mesa Boogie Mark Five 25 & 2x12 Recto Compact Cabinet in Cream Bronco with Cream and Tan Grille Set
The MARK FIVE: 25 is born of thoroughbred stock that carries worldwide accolades and is still setting trends with top Artists 35 years after its unveiling. The MARK FIVE: 25, like the MARK FIVE it is born from, is really a collection of iconic amplifiers. There are far too many circuits and sounds to think of it as merely an amp... its a living history of MESA/Boogie!
From the groundbreaking MARK I that introduced the world to high-gain with its cascading preamp, to the Mark II - the worlds first high gain Dual Mode Channel Switching amplifier (and its later siblings that introduced Simul-Classpower). From the MARK III that ushered in the era of 3 Channel footswtching performance, to the MARK IV which gave all that power individual control, the MARK FIVE (and now the FIVE: 25) is the embodiment of the last 45 years of guitar amp evolution.
In this latest 25 watt incarnation, the sounds and attributes that make MARK Series amps so popular on stage and in the studio are not only shrunk to their smallest possible physical size, but are also further refined and improved. The gorgeous sparkling Cleans and soaring high gain Lead sounds have made the jump successfully across output tube platforms and a new and exciting timbre of the MARK Series voice is created here in the MARK FIVE: 25s EL84 Duet. Brighter, tighter, more shredding in the top end, a bit more forgiving in feel and exceedingly more clip-able, the FIVE: 25 is right on time. Whether introducing the MARK heritage to a new generation of low wattage devotees, or fulfilling the ultra-portable Tone Dreams of steadfast MARK Series fans, the MARK FIVE: 25 has got what it takes to inspire and fuel your passion in the most manageable package ever!

Originally designed to provide a matching, sealed, closed-back 2x12 extension option for the MESA Roadster head and combo, the 2x12 Recto Compact has now established itself as the compact, tighter and more balanced-sounding 2x12 in the Rectifier Cabinet Line. While it’s smaller size delivers more balance across lows, mids & highs, bass resonance and authoritative punch are still signatures of the Recto 2x12 Compact. Beyond its increased focus and tightness in lows, the 2x12 Compact is welcome to those seeking a smaller footprint and easier transport while making no sacrifices in legendary Rectifier tone.
You simply won’t find a better cabinet. ALL MESA ENCLOSURES are made using the finest Void-free, Marine Grade Baltic Birch. Super strong rabbet corners are glued and nailed. Speaker baffles are fitted with superior dado joint construction and braced. Grilles are wrapped around a separate grille board, not the baffle board. Grille material is made of strong twisted jute dipped in a special coating that filters top end for a sweeter response.
