Joe-Rhys's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" aaahhhhhhh wouaihhhhh!!!"

Mesa Boogie Subway Blues Combo
this is all with lamps on the front and a 2-position switch "bright" and "fat", volume, treble, middle, bass and reverb plus, of course, the two switches 2 positions "standby" and "power" .


ben my old, simple, you die!
and that's what I love about this amp!
on the other hand, no saturated sound, nada!
can boost the sound enclanchant switch 2 positions "fat", then the sound becomes "bold" and can saturate more easily.


it is more jazz and blues for me to touch the guitar makes all the difference ...


here was months or years that intrigued me and I saw the bottom of a secondhand music store, and today I threw myself to try and I was not disappointed !
I really liked the clear sound of this amp and it is rare!
I loved the look and its control panel reduced to their simplest expression for me, besides, it is the essence of a good amp, you most simple and better! !
but the only problem is that I love too hard rock that sends the ball, with this amp, no saturated channel, snif!
but hey, here remains that I really enjoyed ...

ArchStenton's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Mesa Boogie Subway Blues Combo
Amp lamps (2xEL84), 20 or 25 watts. Channel! Effects loop, taken Recording. HP twice 4 ohms, plus uses the HP 10 inch Black Shadow. Rverbe spring. An input mode with a fat and a bright mode (depending on the output del uses a guitar). Volume, equalizer (TREB, med, bass), rverbe level. The level of mdium becomes a gain level halfway. Finish and quality construction perfect.


Ultra simple. As mentioned a single channel. Manual in English, but trs prcis with examples.


IDAL is an amp for blues and rock. Diabolique with any good guitar "classic" tlcaster in my case. There is only one channel, but the sound is unbelievable warmth. Claitrs sounds are beautiful, and high volume, the crunch also. attention: 20 watts shown are misleading: for the crunch sounds, you have to play really hard trs. In rptition in a closed room I can hardly put the volume more than 2 or 3, and trs Subway Blues is plenty tough to play in bar or club, with drummer without being Sonoris . I use a TS9 to go into overdrive. It is a combination trs effective: the pedals vritablement married to the sound of the amp without altrer. I have a good rsultats Sansamp also. Of course, forget the mtal has not made for a.


I have over 10 years. With the subway Rocket, Mesa offered the era two real good amps no compromise on quality unbeatable prices (around 5000 FF). For blues, rock, funk, Subway is really hard Galer.

Mesa Boogie Subway Blues Combo
Well then, ultra simple, all-tube amp, 20w, 2EL84 and 4 12AX7, connectivity options for a small combo: returm and effect send, tuning the mix, the HP switch to record alone.
level adjustment, it can not be simpler:
- Volume
- Treble,
- Middle,
- Bass,
- Reverb (reverb and how!)
I put 9 because it is very simple but in this case, there is not need more, everything is there!


Not complicated, you plug it sounds, the régalges are very effective and wickedly accurate, no need for manual although there are small subtleties: the middle turns and gain from the 1 / 2 and suddenly the fact cruncher amp, a treat. Good is already well up the volume to make it crunch!
I put 10 because it gets its its very easy but there are plenty of shades to find even with so few settings


Then there is a 10 without hesitation. slap! How accurately, what a difference with my 50 classic, yet I liked him c't'ampli. but there are no pictures, its just madness ....
I mount the volume to 1 / 3 (though it's "just" a 20w), and I put the knob of theft. my tele-bottom, I could not believe my ears, the harmonics in every sense, and always this accurate settings and sound, all played under the fingers (a bit like a AC 30). You scratch it sounds, you attack, it takes off altogether. I rediscovered my Micor free!!
With a distortion pedal (DS1 in my case) it mind-blowing, sound and personality of the guitar are well respected, a lot of personality

And what power to 20 W, I really can not believe ...

The sounds are warm and crystal clear at once (!), It snaps, it's good


I have a few days ago, and I'm not ready to part with it for that. This amp is, I think, quite versatile blues, rock, reggae, funk, jazz, anything goes. My favorite is the precision of sound, clear sound with distortion, we control everything "fingers". I tried an F50 and an Mark3 but they were too expensive for me ... for me it against his awareness of the mesa. Well with this little subway, I find that sound. I found the sound, my sound!
I do it again this choice with his eyes closed, except that it is rather rare in OCCAZ
I highly recommend it

Mesa Boogie Subway Blues Combo
20W tube amp: 2 * 3 * 12AX7 and EL34
An input channel, an effects loop on the back with adjustable mix, exit 4 HP and 8 Ohms
1 volume, bass, middle, treble. The adjustment knob is also used as mediums of overdrive adjustment from 1 / 3 of the race.
A mode change switch Bright / Fat Manual
What we need no more no less

Note: I have the model without reverb with HP Celestion Black Shadow 10 "


The manual is very simple, some examples of settings but ... I did open out of curiosity!
The sound delivered is round and warm, very bluesy / jazzy, as opposed to a Fender, for example. The settings at the beginning are not simple because of the knob medium / OD. To take a shot, but then we get great sounds from blues / jazz well-rounded addition to sounds Rock (and roll) FAT mode. With the help of a good OD pedal you can play on registers SRV / Led Zep / ACDC to the limit. More disto refrain is not his record but said in the name.
It has a good dynamic, and transmits all the subtleties of the game, and largely cover a 20W standard rock drummer in a pub or a studio.
Can be blamed a lack of versatility, but you can not have everything!


I use it in a register blues rock, 70's rock and it fits perfectly.
I mainly play a Start US, and marvel at Fulltone pedal, the mosfet fulldrive II, and easily j'obtient sounds crunch / OD way SRV, Rolling Stones, and pushing a little Led Zep / ACDC.
It is a very versatile little amp typed blues rock, but has a dynamic and excellent sound MESA that delight the ear.
Terrible in these records, to avoid if you want a Fender clean sound and distortion Sepultura ;-)!


I use it for 2 years and I am delighted.
I particularly appreciate its dynamics (thank you and the heavenly lights), and it delivers the grain. It is a very hot amp, which comes from the Delta!
It is very well made - it's a Mesa Boogie is no doubt - impeccable finish and durability over time.
Its main asset is its texture and warmth, and it is also probably the main drawback if you search an amp for clean sounds clear and distos of death!
I would do this choice given the book in which I play.
