Mesa Boogie Simul-Class 2:90
- Power Amplifier 2x90 watt lamps while class A / B (three 12AX7 and 6L6GC eight, attention has prvoir in the budget at the time of purchase ...).
- 19 "2 U
- 20 kg evil rpartis (all on the front ...).
- A between right / left one, 6.35 format. A level selector of (line / instrument).
- 3 footswitch outputs for Deep, Half and Modern (footswitch not included .. not good ...).
- 6 speaker outputs: 2 8/16 ohm and 4 ohm 4.
- Volume and presence for each channel (very convenient, you can play in single cutting the volume and pushing the bottom presence of non-used channel!).
- A selector on / off and one for the standby (by the way, the action of these selectors is very sweet, no guts no * pop *, unlike say, a Marshall).
- A blue LED power on (nice!), And a diode for each of the three modes.
- A Gnral fuse faade, 2 fuses for each of the power of lamps to the rear.
- A variable speed fan on the power tubes, mounted horizontally to the rear of the amp (as in the Triaxis). practice amp only takes 2 U instead of 3 like Marshall, not practical at the time to change them, you have to have thin fingers ...

- I'll put good 10/10, but with that damn weight and imbalance, b'en nan!

USE

- Hyper bte use, it connects to one side his Pramp the other a cabinet, taking care that the Impedance obviously.
- Instructions Mesa in English, 6 pages, doc very clear and simple.
- Turning knob is played for a ring, box like a Marshall!
- It can be used in mono.
- Function Deep / Half / Modern can be activated by footswitch / midiswitcher. Tranquillou!
- Connectors complte!

SONORITS

- The b'en I not known better amp to power level!
- At the base without the 3 modes activs, the amp adj his personality I use diffrentes guitars through a Triaxis and Gmajor. In the end chain, in a Celestion G12T 1960A-75. It replaces the power section of my old Marshmall JCM 900 4102.
- The amp reproduces very well the grain of Triaxis, adding his: soft and round, or more compressed with still a lot of momentum. He loves the bass and restores wonder if the speaker to follow. Which is obviously not the case with HP G12T-75 ... we quickly realize that these are very limits HP with Mesa, I also suppose with VHT, Soldano, etc. While with the Marshall, it is believed that these are HP honntes ... I know, I believed myself up now!
- The power is staggering! 90 watts Mesa, has sacrment stronger reason JCM900 100 Watts! So 2x90 watts is too much to play at home, such as room rpt '! Not possible at present to the bottom volume is madness!
- But I bought one hand for its fabulous dynamics, and secondly for its ct Mr More: 3 modes Deep, Half and Modern.
- Let's start with the rather more traditional: the Half. B'en, it just lowers the power on two channels simultaneously. We then have the choice between 2x90 watts, 1x90, 2x45 or 1x45! Not bad, right?
- The Deep is an active filter that boosts and enhances the bass. Very effective, one just stands in front of his cabinet and the legs of his pants was that move to the rhythm of HP! Too much! Well, the neighbors will not forcment love!
- The Modern boosts the treble and high-mids, much like the Presence, but adding a natural compression hair and vibrant, saturated gave an even more furious! The volume is thereby also further augment a wonder!
- I drive the activation of three modes via MIDI switchers my Triaxis. at each preset, I can program the activation of the insert loop and each of these three modes. Very handy! But you can also activate with a footwitch or better by a MIDI switcher such Rockman Octopus or ENGL Z11.
- Utilis in mono or stereo, it does not lose momentum.
- Last excellent appearance, it sounds dj superbly low volume without powersoak! It's just wonderful!

NOTICE GLOBAL

- I'm hooked! It is so addictive and sounds so good that I became super hard in gear now ...
- Its weight is pnible but 2x90 watt lamps to be expected!
- When changing lamps, tubes 11, hurt the wallet! Especially when the bias is more or less Blocked for use only Mesa badges lamps. But also passes without problem with Svetlana! (Besides Gillou thank you for helpful advice, kindness and patience!)
- It remains to invest in a cabinet that follows the level of the couple 2: 90 / TriAxis, ie the Eminence or Vintage 30, but certainly not the G12T ...

Mesa Boogie Simul-Class 2:90
- Power Amplifier 2x90 Watt All Tube Class A / B (three 12AX7 and 6L6GC eight, attention, provide it in the budget at the time of purchase ...).
- Format 19 '2 U.
- 20 kg poorly distributed (all on the front ...).
- An entry on the right / one left, size 6.35. A selector input level (line / instrument).
- 3 output functions for the footswitch Deep, Half and Modern (footswitch not included .. not much ...).
- HP Output 6: 2 8 / 16 ohms and 4 ohms 4.
- A volume and presence for each channel (very handy, you can play in single volumes by cutting and pushing the bottom of the channel presence unused!).
- A selector on / off and one for the standby (by the way, the action of these selectors is very smooth, without notch or * pop *, unlike, say, a Marshall).
- A blue LED power on (sympa!), and a diode for each of the three modes.
- A main fuse on front, 2 fuses for each set of power tubes in the back.
- A variable speed fan on the power tubes, mounted horizontally on the back of the amp (as in the Triaxis). practice, the receiver takes only 2 U instead of 3 as Marshall, not practical at the time of the change, you need fingers for ...

- I will put much 10/10, but the damn weight, and this imbalance b'en nan!

UTILIZATION

- Hyper beast to use, it is connected from one side to the preamp, the other in a cabinet in accordance with the impedance of course.
- Notice Mesa in English, 6 pages, doc very clear and simple.
- We play turns knob to make it sound, as stupid as a Marshall!
- It can be used in mono.
- The function Deep / Half / Modern can be activated by footswitch / midiswitcher. Tranquillou!
- Full connectivity!

SOUNDS

- B'en there, I not known better at the power amp!
- Basically, without the three modes activated, the receiver has his personality! I use it with different guitars, and via a Triaxis Gmajor. At the end of string, a Celestion G12T-1960A in 75. It replaces the power section of my old Marshmall Jcm 900 4102.
- The amp reproduces very well the grain of Triaxis, while adding its own: soft, round, or more compressed, with still a lot of momentum. He loves the bass and perfectly restored provided that the speaker follows. This is obviously not the case with HP G12T-75 ... we quickly realized that HP is very limited with Mesa, I guess also with the VHT, Soldano, etc.. While with the Marshall, it is believed that HP are honest ... I know, I believed him too far!
- The power is amazing! 90 watts Mesa, cause damn it stronger than 100 watts JCM900! So 2x90 watts is too much to play at home, such as rehearsal room '! Not yet possible to put the volume up, it's madness!
- But I bought a fabulous part for its dynamics, and also for his part Mr. Plus: 3 modes Deep, Half and Modern.
- Begin rather by the more traditional: the Half. B'en, it just allows to lower the power on two channels at once. We then have the choice of 2x90 watts, 1x90, 2x45 or 1x45! Not bad, right?
- The Deep is a filter active boost and beautify the grave. Very effective, it sits right in front of his cabinet and it was the legs of his trousers fluttering in the rhythm of HP! Too much! Well, the neighbors will not necessarily love!
- The Modern boosts the treble and high-mids, like the presence, but by adding a bit of natural compression and dynamic, saturated it gives an even more furious! The volume is thereby also increased again! amazing!
- I drive the activation of these three modes via MIDI switchers my Triaxis. at each preset, I can program the activation loop insertion and each of these three modes. Very handy! But you can also activate a footwitch or, better, a MIDI switcher like Rockman Octopus or ENGL Z11.
- Used in mono or stereo, it does not lose momentum.
- Last but excellent, it already sounds superbly low volume, without powersoak! It's simply wonderful!

OVERALL OPINION

- I won! It is so addictive and sounds so good that I became a super difficult level stuff now ...
- Its weight is hard, but 2x90 watt lamps, one would expect!
- When changing lamps, tubes 11, it hurts the wallet! Especially when the bias is more or less locked to use only lights badged Mesa. But it also depends smoothly with Svetlana! (Thank you also to Gillou relevant for his advice, his kindness and patience!)
- Remains to invest in a cabinet that follows the level of the couple 2:90 / Triax, ie HP or Eminence Vintage 30, but mostly not ... G12T

Addition, 24/12/2005: sold for a config header + baffle there is more than a year.

Mesa Boogie Simul-Class 2:90
Already said so!

one thing: virtually unusable at home, even in repeats, but the potato is from Hell.
I say "potato" is a small word yet ...

3 modes are perfect for working with the Triaxis. is that of happiness

for those who want the pro stuff, these are the two made to live together ..
Question lamps:

there are lights CARREMENT a 4 x 3x cheaper in the US Teutons or Ches .. so not worry ... just dig a little on the net .. in addition it will give you pleasure tips for the lamps to suit your style of use

UTILIZATION

Again, this is a stereo power amp, then use a stereo, most people have only one speaker, but almost all of the Cabs have two entrances and a stereo mode

for now I play with a slanted Carvin 412t, 400w, and I put it into 4ohms in stereo ..

better to play in stereo with two volumes has two as a single channel has 4 ... basically anything!

I often remark on ais amps of power, the knob "A" turns faiclement, the "B" ca harden a bit ... not good, not good ... the long term.

SOUNDS

Hamer Diablo, ESP HDC-old Les Paul std a friend

all sounds possible sounds by taking the time to settle properly the 2 bikes.

deep, and modern color your sound.

heavy in flight case with other elements, we regret ... but it's up!;)
Once a branch we love it! ;)

I opt for 2U flight case for 2 / 90 and another for the preamp elements.
less hard to bear at once!

OVERALL OPINION

I have tried many model, yes, but this one, advised by a friend, let me really ass on the floor!

I played with a Mesa 20/20, I prefer the sound of 2x90 because they are drier, more cristallints, in perfect agreement with the Triaxis. the 20/20 has a much more compressed and "rough / smooth", it is not negative, attention. it is a matter of taste.
but of course, with the pepette in hand, in a small 2x20 + in the rack, and we can play with configs, mixtures, elements, the usefulness of the Rack!

the dynamics of the 20/20 is more important and of course rising faster in the turns that the 2 / 90

the 2 / 90 is suitable for all styles of music, like his friend the Triax.
I would do well on this choice, when you taste a good mechanic, Quench!
in short everything you throw quickly to pass his old stuff this monster ..
in all this is what I did. ca took me over a year to have the Triax and the 2 / 90 ...

proper maintenance dust bomb + contact from time to time and presto, FLOW.
after interview if his gear properly, it does not move.
I regret that there can be no two planks stand by, in order to really connect a single channel, as in some VHT m'enfin and marshall ... this is nothing ..

Mesa Boogie Simul-Class 2:90
quick review ... you have to complete other ...

<span style="font-weight: normal;">tube amp of course ... many lights ... consider this when revisions and retubing ... it will cost a little longer necessarily
</span>
<span style="font-weight: normal;">it is as its name indicates a 2:90, for those who do not already know ... mean that two channels to 90 lamps each w ...
it's just "monstrous"
I sold quite quickly ...
Me I do not see the interest,</span> you can be transplanted without Bercy with it, knowing that for any coffee is now being planted in PA ... Just a combo 15w ... m'enfin what I say!
is too strong for the house and even to repeat them ...

UTILIZATION

Nothing to report from this side ...
very simple
manual on internet
can not use the 2 channels, so use single possible to think of the volume in the kids and the presence at the bottom of unused channel
plus 3 modes with its slightly different ...
see below
unfortunate that there are not a mono switch for use as the VHT (channel standby)

SOUNDS

<span style="font-weight: normal;">for sound: everything sounds
whatever guitar or microphone (jackson, ibanez, fender, esp ... seymour, Di Marzio or emg ..)
TriAxis connected with, or a mesa recto preamp; extra
too strong but extra
already that a lot of sounds with the settings just guitar preamp and more of those ... But then we have even more choices because 3 sounds with the amp .... this bcp done!

for those who do not walk the Triax fly it, for 15 euros you can make a footwitch control ... great practice

on the rear panel you have 3 jacks for each mode (deep, modern ...)
to enable the user to simply short circuit the corresponding jack ... buy a jack (and 3) some cable ... and a box then 3 switches ... after you plug this cable on the switch ... qd vs. support it short circuits the jack ... and activates the desired mode ... idem pr 3 (vs can put LEDs also, I thought ... but let vs modes st visible on the amp)

here
</span>

OVERALL OPINION

<span style="font-weight: normal;">Summary:
amp is very heavy, too heavy, bcp weight on the front ...
too powerful: the mesa 90w; are not the same as other brands pr
the sound is extra
modes easily usable st ... like 3 amps instead of one

I sold it very quickly ... too powerful for me anyway ...

value for money: it is the mesa, it is expensive but it works well and even very good, and it is also sold very well!
we must see it
it is very sturdy, nothing to say

here
good zik!</span>
