Tube amp with an output of 100w or 60w depending on whether one uses 2 or 4 power tubes (switch on the front)
Optionally you can connect a footswitch to activate or deactivate the reverb.

For the rest, see each other very complete description.


<strong>The setup is simple?
Nothing really complicated, the 2 channels are completely independent, the graphic equalizer can be used with each channel. To

<strong>The manual is clear and sufficient?
the manual just download it on the site mesa / boogie, it's always interesting to read but not necessarily useful.

<strong>Do you get a good sound easy? "

<span style="font-weight: normal;">AHUEVOOOOOOOOOOOO .......... the right sound every time! Now you must know that it sounds super strong, serious over 2 years of use, I've never driven more than 4 / 10 and still 60w!! Unfortunately it is rare to use and fully exploit the power and grain lights up. I really want to buy a power attenuator THD hotplate kind or another ... (It still mad rage of typing € 400 to decrease the power amp then a few years ago it was quite the opposite!)

I put 7 for too much power.</span></strong>


For sound I note prcq 10/10 for me it is great that both clean lead! But I admit he never managed to describe sound with words!
I play rock music in the broadest sense. My influences are; TOOL, Nine Inch Nails, King Crimson, Frank Zappa, QOTSA, Foo Fighters, RATM, and all projects of Mike Patton. The amp is doing wonderfully in these styles (the problem would rather guitarist ...)


<strong>For how long have you been using it?

<span style="font-weight: normal;">2 years
Did you try many other models before getting this one?

<span style="font-weight: normal;">Peavey ULTRA + AD120VT VOX, Fender Hotrod, only the fender sounded really pro but the distortion channel was awful!

What is your opinion about the value for the price?

I bought € 900, but I directly change lamps (250 € in total) is € 1150. The amp must have fifteen years, this model no longer exists, the dual series caliber was replaced by the series F and then the series Express. At the time Mesa / Boogie had far fewer amp models today. The seriousness of the brand is well established, and part of the price is certainly due to the logo and the passage of the Atlantic. Nevertheless, I judge the quality / price very honest (for the 900 €).

Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice?

I have nothing wrong with this amp, on the contrary! Except perhaps his power far too important, I have no intention of selling it but if I had to find myself without an amp today I think I would opt for a Brunetti (In my opinion the equivalent of mesa Made in Italy but not crossing the Atlantic and a less famous logo)

If you have the opportunity to offer it and you're not afraid of power, have no fear ... NO
