Amplitudes: The Mesa Boogie Blog

It is an opportunity for us to reflect on the language and ideas that represented each year. So, take a stroll down memory lane to remember all of our past Word of the Year selections. Change It wasn’t trendy , funny, nor was it coined on Twitter , but we thought change told a real story about how our users defined Unlike in , change was no longer a campaign slogan. But, the term still held a lot of weight. Here’s an excerpt from our Word of the Year announcement in The national debate can arguably be summarized by the question:

Mesa Boogie Lone star Special

The resulting amplifier proved to be loud and successful, and Smith made more than of these Princeton “Boogies”—a name allegedly provided by Carlos Santana , [1] who is to have exclaimed “Man, that little thing really boogies! Smith added an extra tube gain stage to the preamp, with three variable gain controls at different points in the circuit this is now called a “cascaded” design , creating the first high-gain amplifier.

He set about designing a guitar amplifier around the new principle, and in the Mark I was released. Richards had played Santana’s Boogie and decided he wanted one too. Finally, Smith talked to Richards and they agreed that he would send them an amp, and that the Stones would pay for it or return it.

I also have a Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier Solo Head for £ (See my other ad). The best combina Mesa Boogie Rectifier 4 x 12 Cab Slant £ The cab is in great condition and only has three slight scuffs that I can see (See pics).

Having the issue in front of the amp would be something entirely different. Of course using time based effects in front of an amp with anything more than light gain does not sound good at all. In front of an amp with only a clean sound, it should sound good. But, it will likely not sound exactly the same as plugging the guitar directly into the amp for a number of reasons; i. Therefore, using the effects in the loop is necessary. Try this… Plug the guitar direct into the amp to eliminate any other variables.

Connect only one Eventide pedal into the loop. With the pedal bypassed off it should sound no different than the guitar plugged in direct with nothing in the loop. With the pedal engaged you should hear the effect use the mix knob to set the level and you should hear your pure amp tone mixed with the effect without any latency or artifacts. Check that the input light is green not red if it lights up red only sometimes it may be ok but all the time the signal is too hot.

If you only hear the effect at this point and no dry signal, it is a serial loop, not parallel. If this is the case, I would suggest getting a Suhr mini mix II. If this works with only one pedal in the loop then get a splitter and a mini mixer like I suggested. Report back with your findings.

Mesa Boogie Throttle Box Distortion Pedal. Item model number lebox Customer Reviews: Meh. I used to own a first-generation Dual Rectifier head that I unfortunately sold when I left the country for several years- wish I’d put it in storage! Anyway, I watched a few reviews of this pedal online, and thought it sounded OK- I Reviews: 7.

If you’re not familiar with my site, it’s simple, and you’ll love it or hate it: It’s not a fancy site but it remains unchanged since ’98 and I firmly believe, “if it ain’t broke – don’t fix it. Just click on any underlined text and it should open a picture; if you move your cursor over the pic and there’s a magnifying glass displayed instead of your cursor, click the pic and it will expand it to larger size. People are raving about these things as a way to recreate that vintage tape delay in a small stomp box.

It does a cool chorusing thing that I really dig. Check it out here.

Get the high-gain sound adored by rock and metal guitarists everywhere Shares Mesa Engineering changed electric guitar forever when the original Boogie combo appeared on the market in the early s. By this point many modern rock players were using a savage, scooped mid tone combined with a liquid treble and tight bass. Mesa sculpted and refined these core tone elements, adding a massive power supply for super-fast response and joined them to new visuals – basket weave and hardwood were replaced by black vinyl and aluminium checker plate.

Features one channel and two inputs; volume, bright, treble, treble expander, bass, bass expander, bright switch, deep switch, stand-by switch, pilot light for stand-by and operate. This amp was built to play larger halls and outdoor concerts. The lack of reverb was not a big issue as most live performances had acoustics full of reverberation halls, arenas.

Peter Traynor built these things to stand up to road abuse, unlike a lot of vintage stuff. It sounds great with either bass and guitar, providing a clean and loud tone. Works great in large club settings. Front panel has two input jacks, controls for treble boost, volume, treble expander, treble, bass expander, bass, presence, and bass boost.

There is also a standby switch and corresponding green and red pilot lights. There are no effects in this head, but stomp boxes work just fine.

Original tube [complement] was three 12AX7s and four 6CA7s that I swapped for s very easy, just boost bias about ten volts in order to have 30ma idle Original input resistor was k and I changed it for 5. Can be converted from to EL34, I think a pin jumper is needed.

What year is my Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier Solo Head? Good Amp?

Although I plan to thoroughly test it before commiting, I’m interested in your opinions and experiences. Who’s rocking a LSS? Anything to look out for?

Plug into a Mesa/Boogie Triple Rectifier 3-channel tube amplifier head and you’re in for the kind of massive tone you’ve only dreamed of – until now! This all-tube, watt firebreather one-ups its predecessors, adding a third channel to an already legendary amp.

Top down, radio pumpin flying down a back-country road in a high performance ragtop. Responsibilities behind, miles of S-curves aheadfully in the moment and feeling the rush as you confidently snake your way through shadowed canyons that give way to sunny ridgetops. Introducing the new Dual Rectifier Roadster; the most fun a guitarist can have on four wheelswell alright, casters. This all-tube thoroughbred shares a class with only one other amplifier – and that position is held by its brother the mighty Road King.

In fact, the Roadster is a Road King without Progressive Linkage and other rear panel features that some players fear need a higher education to navigate. The Roadster now offers the plug-and-play minded guitarist a way to enjoy a myriad of footswitchable preamp choices without the power option anxiety. Once youve dialed in your ultimate clean sound, you can duplicate it in the other Channel and modify it for single note applications, a more pushed version or decide to switch to another mode for a radically different sound.

These dynamic and incredibly expressive modes would make an amazing amplifier all by themselves as they roam the zone between clean and clipped with authentic finesse.

I will try to make it more comprehensive, after a year of use! We can add live bass, treble off, etc.. All parameters are highly sensitive and affect each other.

The Dual and Triple rectifiers are set very cold in the 6L6 mode even when in the solid state rectifier mode and the bold setting. So even the hottest 6L6’s on the planet will still not get the bias as high as it could safely be run.

MESA / BOOGIE has reworked its familiar and proven dual and triple-rectifier models to make them even more versatile. In doing so, meticulous comparisons have been made with their direct predecessors and also with the older, 2-channel versions/5(9).

Specifications What We Think The Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier has become a new classic for those players looking for extreme tonal versatility across all genres and playing styles. From bold cleans to spongy overdrive all the way to blistering high gain territory, and all sorts of tweakable settings in between, the Triple Rectifier just about does it all As much as the Triple Rectifier offers, though, some players need a little And more is what the wizards at Voodoo Amps did.

We were all impressed with the improved low-end response and lightning fast articulation on all of the channels. Those Voodoo Amps guys definitely know what they’re doing! Check the specs on this one for more details on the modifications. This is what a Triple Rec was born to be! On the lower end of gain, in both Channels 2 and 3, RAW mode offers an excellent classic-rock style sound.

Channel 3 delivers a wish list of what heavy aficionados might expect from the original engineers of cascading gain. Tube Tracking further compresses sound in a very clean subtle manner. If more headroom is needed, Diode rectification is an alternative option for tighter low-end tracking.
