Just wow!

A really solid unit, built to last.

The versatility of this small package amp modeler and guitar fx is way more than I expected. Any sound is possible. All sounds are great through headphones, amp cabs in rehearsal space and studio speakers.

Will definitely have lots of fun with this and suits my needs for both bands I play in. From Doom/Death to Fuzzy Stoner/Alternative.
The integrated expression pedal is rigid and very responsive.

Extremely user friendly and intuitive, the only downside is that there isn't a standalone app for the PC, so when you use it along with a DAW and it's not on the desk itself you have to bend down each time to tweak the sound as you wish. Other than that it's pure awesome!

Compact enough to not be an issue to carry as hand luggage when playing gigs abroad. Same size as the Line6 M9.

I had a Line6 M9 which served me well but very limited to having 3 stomps only at one given time. Yes it has scenes etc but to change over on the fly during a live performance was not optimal for me, and did not want to attach other pedals as it would defy the point of having a compact unit for logistic purposes. The MX5 on the other hand is so easy to switch between whole rigs and its all seamless.

The cloud system is awesome as well, can download other artists rigs set-ups & IRs all of which are easy to transfer over to the MX5 unit without needing to be a PC genius.

Definitely recommend this to any guitarist out there.


best effect unit ever

this has a lot of power, sounds better than anything out there, at least on par with quad cortex.

ease of use, touch screen is super responsive, impeccable user interface. Can load Custom IR's.

absolutely kickass product.

Une petite tuerie

Commandé, reçu rapidement, merci Thomann...
Je le découvre petit à petit, mais l'impression générale est très satisfaisante.
Niveau fabrication, j'aurais préféré un boitier tout métal, le dessous est en plastique.
Coté effets c'est très très complet et convaincant.
Je me garde juste une way huge saucy box et un ensemble crunch de triungulo labs.
Les modélisations d'ampli sont également très naturelles.
Un vrai couteau suisse
