    1x12 Combo 4x EL84 lamp
    30 watts very powerful
    2 caneaux indpendants
    Beautiful building

    USE

    Operation is simple but you have to spend time to find a suitable sound.

    SONORITS

    I have tried quite a pal F30 and sincerely none really made me pack.
    The grain is raw, with a lack of obvious roundness and warmth, the dynamic is good but its really too directional.
    The bass is narrow and cold (VOX AC30 The too has low narrow, but so hot ...), aggressive acute and rappeux.
    Crunches do not have this mouelleux that one can expect from a tube amp in this price (no better than a classic 30 three times cheaper) only shoots distos restore the body (and heart) this little combo.

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    I'm not very fan of Mesa amps in general (a engages only my tastes) but you have reconnatre that the F30 is much too chre for that sonorits it proposes, for the same price will take a tour of the ct Brunetti, Orange, Soldano, Hand wired Marshall, VOX AC30 (or greenback ALINCO) etc. Who themselves offer sonorits match their price.

The poor will curse themselves for having taken so powerful, they are at least amp for concerts in the concert hall style cafe / bar, and suddenly the lights are useless to them.

    30W is perfect.

    The F30 is not that combo, you can buy the head only, but honestly, the difference in price and less than 100euros (about 1500), while the HP that is inside is worth easily 500 !

    UTILIZATION

    So here's how we try to get a good sound with this amp ... ON THE CAR!
    on the other hand, you need a little search to find YOUR sound good. And make no mistake, if your amp is new and this is the first time you hear the sound of killer, you may find it below what it really is. I advise everyone to test multiple configurations, each for at least 30 minutes!

    The footswitch (included) is effective, even if it lacks a little something in my opinion: it is possible to choose the contour of the foot or distortion to the amp, for against, the outline of his clean only can be changed to the amp.

    The manual of the amp is in English, but it gives a lot of advice to continue his amp (like not to push too acute, and many other small details yet).

    SOUNDS

    The clean sound: very accurate, and unlike other amps (I played on Marshall), mediums exist! This allows for a very clear and rich. But playing a few adjustments, you will find a fast one with lots of character (and character you choose, if not it wonderful?)

    The Crunch: I'm not the expert crunch, I would simply say that it is the same quality as the rest of the amp. As soon as one goes up a little gain (more than 4 for example), we can make it sound like a distortion.

    The disto: wonderful. While having a powerful sound (strong, oh yes!), Of round or shouting depending on your settings, you can hear every note of your dealings out of the amp. Sorry for those who love to have a big sound disgusting or it does not distinguish any harmonic or sometimes a beat (I sometimes wonder if for some of them is simply to hide their weaknesses guitarists), but the F30, you can be the powerful, rich, and clean. I makes me happy.

    For recording studio sound engineers are all fallen in love with my amp, it remains on the ass so the sound is nice and clean, and NOT STRAY!

    REVIEW: I play melodic punk sometimes taking to the pop rock ... I wanted the music very melodic but full of energy. The sound of my guitar is now on its own pure energy and pure melody. The beauty of sound is breathtaking. (I play a Fender Telecaster Esquire Custom GT, but I also tried with my Yamaha, always very very good)

    The F30 contains an HP combo Celestion Vintage. This is precisely the HP makes the best sound this creature. But for those who want a heart attack with a volume worthy of the big scenes, and with a definition so pure it will make you cry, I recommend the celestion vintage MESABOOGIE 4HP (the same exists in Marshall, with the same HP, but not the same wood or the same fabrication, and I assure you that the result is not the same !!!).

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for some time (too soon), just a month, but still I play 5 hours a day (too little time, as I said), and a friend seller was already playing on this amp since its creation, so in fact I know this amp for a long time.

    My favorite in the F30, it's really all. It knows no flaws in my view (for what I plan to make an amp). He has a great mouth, its small size and the fact that it's a combo (when all the pros are proud to have head + HP) mean that most people do not prepare to hear a sound so fabulous, if powerful. The surprise only reinforces the admiration that people have for the F30.

    I went through different amps, but the F30 is my first all-tube amp. I squat a lot of my amps lamps guitar teacher too, H & K notament. I tried many amps in the store as well. I did not set any limit to the price (well, until 4000euros), and guess why I chose this amp!

    The price / quality ratio is incredible. Yes, it's expensive 1500euros, but 3000's double. There are amps that are much more expensive to do more, perhaps, but not flying the F30 key on (its clean, crunch and distortion). And me anyway, I find it nice not too far from what a guitar sound at the base. I compare it with a little synthesizer that mimics the violin ... I prefer the violin, in its pure essence. Moreover, the amps transistors cheaper you let go much faster, resulting in repair costs and replacement. In the end, you'll spend a little less in the long term with amps that you have much less satisfied. We must make a choice there!

    Thank you for having read everything, I know that I was a little long, but I really pierces the cu *** this amp, you had to come out! (Yes it is because a big amp)

    The Mesa boogie F 30 amplifier combo is a great little three channel amp that can get some stunning clean sounds all the way up to some brutal dual rectifier tones. It has a chimy bell like clean tone that is just exquisite to listen to. Then you can take it up to a medium classic rock type again sound and then punch it up for some dual rectifiers thick saturated tones. Mesa boogie build some of the very best amplifiers in the business in this amplifier at the price in the convenience of this little combo is one of the best ones that they've ever done. It's a simple design and a simple little combo amp I can get you some great results.

    SOUNDS


    I absolutely love the tone of Mesa boogie amplifiers. They have such a great warmth and thickness with chewy gain sounds as well as brilliant clean tones that just makes playing a lot more fun. I never been really a fan of vintage 30 speakers but only in a Mesa boogie content. I don't really get the results I'm looking for with the circuitry o anything else. The voicing of these Mesa boogie amplifiers with the 30s just worked perfectly for me.

    This amplifier very easy amplifier to control it doesn't have a whole lot of tricks and different switches and knobs but just has a basic game, treble, midrange, bass, reverb, and then your master volume controls. You have many little switch to engage the contour and switch the channels and you have the same at EQ settings and control knobs for each channel. The separate clean channel so that you can have a perfectly aligned clean tone with a perfectly aligned gain channel.

    OVERALL OPINION


    These amps are not made anymore. See you how to find them in the use section or the classifieds. I'm not sure exactly how hard they are fine but if you can find one for a decent price and I highly recommend picking it up. This is a great little combo amplifier for someone needing a good little practice amp at home in the office or the bedroom.

    I play rock style band, rock / funk rock / reggae and 30 watts is the ca
    the clean channel with the gain is adjustable sound super clean (always with a lot of momentum) has a warmer sound and a little crunch by pushing the knob of the gain
    Channel 2 gain and sending good it sounds!
    we move easily from a good rock blues crunch, distortion has a more pronounced and pushing Carries On s can approach the nu-metal in my opinion (although I do not practice)
    contour of the switch CH2: soloists friends, welcome, it adds a layer of mediums that should please you
    in short I adore the sound of this heavy small combo

    OVERALL OPINION

    I played in on a fender hot rod deluxe and 2 years that I have the I m tired.
    It is super versatile (although even identify its setting when), also super expensive ...
    but is klita
    C is simple: since I have the, at a time in my group, people who have hearing or the trying (with 80 years gibson, gibson blueshawk, Fender Start) tell me, as it sends the mesa! es on t c is 30 watts?
    the only amp that I have tried to rival the orange is c (c is even hotter, even more expensive TFW

    SOUNDS

    I play rock, blues, pop
    I have a Fender American strato USD.

    This amp sounds very very well in the clear, warm sound, dynamic, there is really nothing to say, bass, mids, treble, everything goes very well,
    no loss of the original sound of the guitar, note 10/10.
    The channel distortion is especially EXCELLENT for rock / blues.
    We resent the beans and heat lamps, nothing to do with transistors.
    The distortion levels are nonbreuses and always faithful.
    Another feature nice, the sound has a peak at the mediums (type santana), especially with audible distortion, rating 9 / 10 for the distortion.

    To make better use of sound, push the sound over three, but watch it makes noise, because it looks more like a 30w 70w transistor in terms of loudness.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Very good amp for the distortion that remains a matter of taste.
    It nevertheless remains in the registry rock / blues.
    After it will be the external effects that can make other styles.

    Certainly it makes very good job, but I find it too expensive for uniquenent 2 channels and reverb.

    I would be ready to redo the election but for cheaper!

    UTILIZATION

    The configuration is childish. No frills, we can find a good sound, and the pots are not for the decor, do not hsiter spend time to find the sound that suits you. The manual is in French and is very well done. There are some proposals to help rglages become familiar with the amp and the more you how to change self-same lamps.

    SOUNDS

    I find this amp versatile trs. In fact I would say that is really the "continuation" of your guitar, and sharpen his personality. Please note I am not saying that the amp is compltement neutral grain has a particular trs. But playing mainly metal metallica deftones from making a small detour by rage against the machine, I will not hide my surprise when I hear that it is mainly intended to blues rock ... it's simple the distortion is simply halucinante ... as long as one has to go with the guitar. I use most often with an esp eclipse 2 with two emg 81 and I often have to calm down the beast if I do not want Master of Puppets or killing in the name sound like the death. Sr good if you try to make the metal with a telecaster, will not be such a ....
    To tell you before that I had a mesa amp randall 30 watt transistor wmx ian scott, randall mark for being a "metallic" and well I assure you that the randall sounds like a clock radio a cot.
    Small flat for sounds very modern fawn deftones, but do not forget that all good neo metal guitarist does not go out without her squadron of effects pedals.

    PS: the sound is great too clearly worthy of a fender amp

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a few weeks but fawn intensive. I like the sound of this amp and it gives EHJV palm mute. on the other hand I deplore the fact that 30 watts is powerful. I am fortunate not to have neighbors at the moment, but this amp is equivalent a declaration of war if you live in an apartment. At home I do not grow more than 20% of the risk of going deaf ... and yet j had the habit of pushing my randall and my Vox Valvetronix 30 watt bottom. So here you your prvenus. I bought a head shot (thunderbolt), I have not tried other amps before bcp, some vox and a marshall any lamps that were ple figure ct .
    Question ratio quality price, trs price should not close our eyes, what the price would be able to read dvd and it keeps the beers cool ... but it's good bcp not more expensive than any other amp lamps.

    The power is in the appointment. It may be noted that the f 30 is easier to grate clear that saturated. On this latter channel, in fact, the volume reached a magnitude faster dmoniaque trs. For those dj alls Maiden Bercy see for example, play half the power is worth thirty meters to be placed in the axis scne pregnant .
    The distortion is not difficult to cover many styles and this amp is not intended as blues, far from it.
    Nevertheless, and even a volume that can stay friends with her neighbors, bte makes a sound of any remarkable quality. In the past I possd amps lamps as "marshall" or "laney" whose sounds seem dsormais approximate. Power up from the f 30 is a caractrise precision and cleanliness that fully justify its price. But we must find the right rglage. And here's another quality of this amp: the legalization of pots vritablement have a role to play.
    Friends guitarists, if you like vottre six strings, offer a 30 f.
    Greetings

    OVERALL OPINION

    DEFINITIONS In, everything is great in this amp, even the price quality ratio. Remember that it is an investment and its value on the market opportunity is plutt flattering.
    Another advantage: it is lightweight for a mesa.

    Amp lamps: 2 EL84, 4 12AX7 and a Celestion Vintage 30 hp for a power of 30 watts.
    Between an instrument, an effects loop with level and SETTING THE DI output for recording or the sound without a microphone.
    The rglages are simple and complete:
    Clean channel: gain, treble, mid, bass, reverb, volume, brilliance switch on the gain very practical in funk.
    Channel saturla same thing without the switch gloss but with a more exaggerated contour the sound (no boost).

    UTILIZATION

    The config of the amp could not be easier in less than two minutes we found the sound is impressive and apprciable trs.
    The manual is in English but it is mostly useless for a few who really knows.

    The manual is in English but it is mostly useless for a few who really knows.

    SOUNDS

    Yes it is done all my music styles: jazz jazz-fusion funk blues-fusion.
    I play it with a fender stratocaster american deluxe hss lsr (two single sc Bill Lawrence and a double) and I must say that I have my guitar Discoveries! It did not sound like a first!
    The sounds are a hot dynamic trs IMMEDIATE rgal in blues and funk, jazz sound is a little harder to find than a f50 that has more bass but that is far below me for all the vintage sounds (not hot enough).
    The sound is saturated idalie for fusion with an DEFINITIONS notes outstanding (we understand what is played by the guitarist, for those like distos grain without the husk which incomprensible).
    I love all the sounds but to say something, I have a penchant for funk and blues sounds, blues and fusion jazz!!
    modif: no crunch sounds on this amp! o I passed the note on October 1 ptit7!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for two weeks and I regret not having tried more tt, cel lives would have to play all the time with his death without compress grain without personality!
    What I like about this amp is in this brief description:
    very practical format easy to transport
    Sounds good in two minutes and rglages j'exagre!
    standard projection (why bored with 50W or more, they did not fawn all this grain (EL84))
    Trs versatility of jazz, blues and rock support.
    I tried a VOX AC30, a mesa f50 (excellent but more rock), the marshall tsl dsl (horrible), fender twin amp, deluxe reverb (cold), cyber twin (inrglable) and other .. .
    The ratio quality price is justified as we see the shit that sell the same price or slightly cheaper.
    I raferai hsitation the same choices.
    Small change APRS one year of use:

    It is indeed impossible to find a crunch on this amp and it goes from clean to saturated grain emissions in a trs dixime potart tower.

    Trs damage so that level, I am looking for a solution to this problem (change lamps see the same hp) ... follow

    UTILIZATION

    The config is childish, whatever the setting, the sound is excellent ... but it is true that one little access to sounds very different so to find all the possibilities of the beast, good luck!
    The manual gives some basic example quite useful.

    SOUNDS

    I play different style and it goes very well in many areas.
    I begin with the only drawback for me is that there is no crunch, or at least not worthy of the name crunch ...

    The clean sounds can be slamming funky singles, round and fat, it's really depending on the settings and the guitar pickups! For crystalline arpeggios, that's fine too ...

    The distortion is very very very very good!! we forget the good crunch, is dead! but for all that is rock to metal, it goes, even if just for a little metal is big on ...

    I play a musicman Petrucci, so there are sounds of Dream Theater, but it's not limiting at all, we can explore all styles in this configuration.

    THE BIG OVER THIS AMP: this is one of the only tube amp that sounds great at low volumes. It loses momentum but the sound is excellent even at the apartment!

    Coupled with an overdrive pedal, you're ready for all styles, with slightly crunchy blues!

    One last point, I really like reverb, although I know many find it anywhere, for me it is great, staying quiet.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had a few months.
    I played on Line 6, Marshall JTM30, Hughes and Kettner Tube 20 ... I tried many amps and I really enjoyed it.
    Comparison between the F30 5:25 ET:

    5:25 outweighs the sounds blues / crunch
    The F30 takes precedence over large disto ...
    Otherwise the sounds are very close and the passage 5Watt one does not really matter in terms of use at low volume as the F30 sounds good at low volumes, and anyway, 5 watts at mesa c ' is already very strong!

    It is not too heavy, not fragile, sounds good at all volumes, pierce into the mix and a sound that is noticed, never too aggressive or too light ... amp ideal if you want to get into the big gear, rack, cabinet etc. ... but I continued to dream of a big fat sound correct, it is well below in large disto !!!!!
