iamqman's review"Royal but kicking amp"

Mesa Boogie Royal Atlantic RA-100 Combo
This the big brother of the TA-15 and TA-30 series amps. This one dos have a bit more bit and grind than the other amps do. You get a 100 watt British flavored amp that comes standard with El34's or the option of 6L6 power tubes.

This amp is a nice addition to the Mesa Boogie family. The have about an amp for any style and any guitar player out there. This one has a bit of the familiar Mesa Boogie tone but just a direction pointed across the Atlantic Ocean.

SOUNDS

Sounds8/10
This amp sound great with just about any guitar you throw at it. I personally like the the distortion when coupled with a nice Gibson Les Paul. The British tone and from a Mesa Boogie with a good Gibson Les Paul is a match made in heaven. They compliment each other very well.

Also, a good Fender Stratocaster sounds excellent on the bluesy channels or clean channel. You get a good singing sustain that feels rich in tone and warmth.

The amp is very easy to dial in and Mesa Boogie has several videos demonstrating the EQ settings and how to dial in a specific tone. The master high and low is a unique feature and makes this amp really stand out. It allows you to tweak you tone even more to your liking or guitar's sound

OVERALL OPINION

Overall this is a great amp for someone who needs a solid build British flavored amp. Marshall has been failing to do so in recent years and Hiwatt is outrageously expensive. You can always buy a Reeves amp for half the price of a Hiwatt if that tone is your thing. Or you can pick this amp relatively cheap.

At new these amps come in at around $1899. I know that might not be cheap for some people but given the custom hand made quality of this amp and you are getting a great deal comparatively to a JVM or a Hiwatt

iamqman's review"Royal combo!"

Mesa Boogie Royal Atlantic RA-100 Combo
This is Mesa's classy British voiced amp in a combo version. This is the same amp as the Royal Atlantic 100 head but just in a combo version. You get the same great tone and features as the head with only a slight change in tone. Since this is a combo you will get a smaller tone unless using the speaker output going into a 4x12 or 2x12 speaker cabinet.

I like this unit as you can take it on the go and have only a guitar you need and some effects and still be able to hook it up to a 4x12 when needed. You basically get the best of both worlds when using it this way.
