Mesa Boogie 1x12 Straight : iamqman's user review
« Solid mini »
When you think of Mesa Boogie you think of rugged no holds barred killer sounding and constructed amplifiers and cabinets. Mesa has built a reputation of being the industry standard of heavy duty guitar ralated products. This little cab may be small, but it falls right in line with the rest of the Mesa Boogie bully amp family.
I think Mesa Boogie is a bunch of bullies in the sense that there products are so dense and durable that you use them to survive an atom bomb. The will outlast most of the humans on earth, that is how well build there products are built. These are built for the new mini rectos that just came out. They have basically the same features as any other recto cab.
This little small 1x12 cab is a rugged determined little beats of a cab. These cabs have so many great uses to them. You can use them as single cabs for an amp or you can use them for a wet/ dry setup that has been so popular over the last few years by many guitarists.

The tone of this speaker in opinion sells the theme that Mesa has been sporting for many years. Sure their Celestion V30's are probably the most popular speaker that they use since so many guitar players resort to them, but the Celestion C90 are fit for the king. These speakers have a character to them that screams rock and roll. The have a punch to them that other speaker only wish they could hit. You have a perfectly voiced speaker to go along with many of the perfectly voiced amplifiers.
This is my personally favorite speaker that marries many the Mesa Boogie amplifiers. I especially like them hen used with a Mark series amp from Mesa Boogie. I find that the voicing sensitivity of this speaker brings out the best sonic frequencies to the amps.
At new you can pick these cabinet up for about $450. Not that bad of a price but not cheap either for a cab this small. However, I can tell you that this is many guitar players go to cab for the wet dry setup.
