What we say:
Mesa/Boogie is the lifelong work of Randall Smith, a drummer, saxophonist and amp repairman who, in the late 60s San Francisco in the midst of the hippy scene, worked away in his mountain shack perfecting what became the world’s first cascading gain guitar combo. After showing it to Carlos Santana and receiving the comment ‘Man, this thing really Boogies!’, Smith released the first Mesa/Boogie amp, the Mark I. Always the innovator, he also invented the world’s first channel switching amp (the Mark II in 1980) and redefined high gain distortion for everyone in 1991 with the game-changing Dual Rectifier.
Since then Smith and his team at Petaluma, California have continued to innovate and produce completely hand-made amps-as-instruments that lead the way in terms of tone, build quality, vision and possibility.
This 25 watt head is the perfect gigging companion for those who want to unleash the signature sound of the Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier. With Multi-watt power settings switchable from 25 w to 10w on each channel, you can alter the headroom of the amp as you prefer along with the response characteristics.
As with its mighty big brother, the channels of this combo have switchable characters: clean can also be ‘pushed’ and the gain channel can be either vintage or modern. Each channel has entirely separate gain, EQ, master and reverb (on the back) controls so you do not have to compromise either channel. This is the simplest way to get that colossal Dual Rec firepower at your next gig. Of course, it’s not all about mega-gain with this head: the clean and pushed sounds are full of depth and expression, especially when you dial in a little long spring tube reverb. This is an excellent selection of sounds available from this tasty little head: match it to a quality 1x12 (or larger) cab for a portable master of tone.
