This is an amazing amp fro Mesa Boogie. It has a simple one 12 inch speaker and a two channel one for rhythm and one for lead. It also has reverb and a great effects loop. The contour switch allows the users to accurately dial in the EQ after you have your favorite guitar. This version is all black and has 20 watts of power. A solid little amp from the genius of Mesa Boogie. these amps were designed for the small space jamming sessions and the person who needed a compact amp for home use and light gigging. These amps have a familiar Mesa Boogie tone that is easily recognizable. You get a few different models and all of the had their place in the series line of amps.

SOUNDS

This amp had two channel one for lead and one for rhythm and both are fantastic. You get a solid clean tone as well with this amp. I am not sure if you can mod this one like the Mark lll amps to have the separate clean on the back. Either way the amp is full of tone.

To me the distortion of these amps were amazing. It has a tone of the Mesa Boogie Mark lll amps. I immediately recognized a similar voicing to these amps. This isn't a Dual Rectifier tone with the over saturated preamp gain. It has a good interaction between the power section and the preamp section. That is what reminded me of the Mark 111 much more.

OVERALL OPINION

With only 20 watts of power this amps still pacts quite a punch. These amps were amazing when they were in production. Mesa Boogie still has fantastic amps that have a similar character to these amps.

You can find these on the used market pretty cheaply. Not sure the going rate for these amps as thy vary from model to model. If you get a chance to play one you may come out of the store with a new amp day. They are great little practice amps and nice tone machines.
