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.
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.
