About the Mesa Boogie Dual Caliber DC5 amplifier. 

The Mesa Studio Caliber series was initially launched in the early ‘90s. It appeared around the same time as the more popular Dual and Triple Rectifier. Typical of the format, the DC5 was available as both a combo or just as a head and boasted 50 watts of power.

This amplifier is certainly one heck of a workhorse. You will see many good examples that have been thrashed every night and still sound awesome provided the valves are changed regularly.

At 50 watts it is certainly a very loud amp and will have no problems drowning out the noisiest of audiences.

Features of the Mesa Boogie Dual Caliber DC5:

  • It has two different channels which are foot-switchable.
  • Separate 3-band EQ for each channel along with presence control.
  • Gain and master controls for each channel.
  • 5-band parametric EQ assignable to neither, both, or either channel.

So, in conclusion, this is a very versatile amplifier. Of particular note is the range; from incredible distortion to really crisp clean tones. Like many amps, it can be a tad noisy, but the grounding switch does a pretty good job at cutting some of the noise out.
