  • Tech Specs

The heart of the new HeadRush MX5 is the 4-inch touch display, enabling guitarists to touch, swipe, and drag-and-drop to create and edit their tones in a super-fast and intuitive way. The large display gives ultra-clear feedback when performing live; especially when using the built-in looper or making changes to your tone using ‘Hands-Free Mode’ with the built-in expression pedal.

Whether guitarists are looking for a classic vintage amp sound, wide ambient stereo delay textures with synth overtones and in nite feedback, or the heaviest of heavy hi-gain tones, the HeadRush MX5 covers it all. The MX5 provides an incredibly diverse library of 50 guitar and bass ampli er models, 15 speaker cabinet models with 10 microphone emulations, 300 impulse responses, and 66 premium FX models. These are awless simulations of the most sought-after vintage and modern gear with unrivalled accuracy and authentic dynamic response. The HeadRush library will continue to be expanded with regular feature updates that add new models and features based on user requests and feedback.

Built with the full power of HeadRush’s agship products, MX5 gives guitarists a huge amount of exibility to sculpt their dream tones. Players can easily create dream rigs comprising 9 individual FX along with 2 amp models and 2 cab models in a single preset. Additionally, the MX5 also features gapless preset switching with reverb and delay tail spillover, so guitarists can switch between clean and lead tones without any dropouts in sound during their performance.

The MX5’s durable and compact design boasts 3 footswitches equipped with individual RGB LEDs, an expression pedal (with adjustable tension and built-in toe switch), and a generous offering of inputs and outputs on the rear panel. This includes a 1/4” guitar input, a stereo pair of 1/4” balanced outputs, 1/8” aux input, 1/8” headphone output, MIDI I/O, and a 1/4” stereo FX loop. The stereo FX loop can be used for integrating external FX pedals and placing them anywhere in the MX5’s signal chain, as well as enabling MX5 to connect to traditional guitar and bass ampli ers via the four-cable method. There is also a USB port, which can be used to record or reamp at studio quality (up to 24-bit 96kHz), transfer presets and loops, and easily upgrade the MX5’s feature when new feature updates are released by HeadRush.
