Amazing sounding amplifier! This amp is basically like a Dual Rectifier but with the feature of the reverb. This amp is heavenly and tone galore. Very easy to play and forgiving too. If you want a fantastic sounding Mesa Boogie with some nice reverb then this is the best in my opinion.

SOUNDS

Is has five voicings for the two channels. So you can basically get just about any kind of tone you want from this amp. The gain and saturation is what i personally love about Mesa Boogies. They have such a unique and classic preamp gain structure that really sizzles.

Plus the clean channels are so well constructed and voiced that it makes you feel like you are playing some vintage Fender amp rather than a high gain monster amp.

OVERALL OPINION

The tone on this amp is huge in every way possible. The clean with its two voicings and the gain channel with its raw vintage and modern voicings. There is a huge package of tone waiting to be discovered in this amp. It is simple as well with just the one speaker and a simple body construction, it ca basically go anywhere with you. In addition you have speaker out puts in case you want to crank a 4x12 cabinet with it.

At these amps come in at around $1600, which isn't bad for a hand made solid build amp. With the nice touch of reverb it takes the standard Dual Rects and adds to it.
