What we say:

At A Glance:

HeadRush is one of the top choices when it comes to amp modeling and the MX5 combines powerful processing with a compact design. It is perfectly suited to musicians on the go or those who want all their needs met in one simple to use unit. The quality of effects and modeling is superb and their exclusive patent pending touch display technology keeps it simple to use - even for technophobes. Quickly customise and save professional grade tones that can do wonders for your recordings and live performances.

Features We Love:

Small but Mighty!

This compact unit houses a lot of power and possibilities! Packed with 46 amp models, 15 cabinets with 10 microphone emulations, 300 IRs, and 63 FX, you have plenty of options available to suit any kind of performance, practice or recording session. The custom-designed DSP system keeps it all running smoothly thanks to multi-core processing.

Extremely Portable

Weighing in at just 3.5lbs (1.6kg), it is light enough to take anywhere you need it. You'll find that it also fits into the majority of backpacks, making it a very convenient solution/alternative to carrying around a cumbersome pedalboard.

Easy to Use

HeadRush has made this incredibly easy to use straight out the box. The high-resolution 4" touch display clearly shows your signal chain which can quickly be changed thanks to a sleek user interface. Touch, swipe, and drag-and-drop to easily customise and change your rig. Presets are also a breeze to setup, store, and recall, plus you can have your full show organised in advance thanks to the Setlist feature.

Plenty of Connections

Taking a look at the back panel will quickly reveal how capable the MX5 is when it comes to working beyond the basics. MIDI in/out, an FX loop, a TRS input for an external expression pedal... it's all there!

Customer reviews

Overall Rating 4.8/5 (4 reviews)

Fantastic bit of kit. So easy to use!! Build and save pedalboards in minutes. Love it.

Chris O. - 22/2/2023

Very impressive for the price. Provides warmth and finesse to my guitar sound that more expensive boards do not. Easy to use with lots of features for the price.

Robert I. - 14/11/2021

Great product very easy to use, produces great tones and easy to manipulate. Small footprint with a touchscreen,built in expression pedal and a stereo fx loop is great. Only loses out to its competitors when it comes to its lack of pc editing. Headrush deserve more credit than they seem to get when it comes to modelling

andy s. - 13/10/2021
