What cabinets and speakers are best suited for your amplifier?

We get asked a lot about which cabinets are best suited for what amplifiers and it gets tough to answer because there are so many excellent choices and all of our cabinets sound great. Plus, tone is a subjective subject and the best choice may depend on the application the cabs are needed for. There really isn’t necessarily a right or wrong but rather what works best for you.

Ideally, it would be best to plug in and try out each cabinet to determine what your ears prefer. If that’s not possible, here are a couple of thoughts for you. <see more>

The Fillmore™ 25 has arrived! Check out what this 6V6 dynamo offers

We were super-pumped to see our UPS driver today as he dollied in some new MESA/Boogie® Fillmore™ 25 1x12 Combos. This is the 6V6 loaded little brother to the Fillmore™ 50, that you've likely heard players raving about, and like its sibling, two identical channels provide an ultra-expressive, vintage-vibe. The 6V6 power tubes provide bounce & bloom, with juicy, organic feeling compression, plus some natural tapering of the highs and having half the headroom of the 6L6 clip earlier. Hear for yourself in the following demo video or swing by the shop for a test drive.<see more>

What distinguishes the Head-Track & Switch-Track from other switchers & routers?

What distinguishes the Head-Track & Switch-Track from other switchers & routers?

Amp switching and signal routing is nothing new to MESA/Boogie. Many of you likely remember or perhaps even own the Rackmount Amp Switcher we designed and built in the 1990s. Certainly, there are several different ones currently offered by other manufacturers as well. So, what is it that sets MESA's new HEAD-TRACK™ Head + FX Loop Switcher and SWITCH-TRACK™ Buffered & Dual Isolated ABY Switcher apart from the myriad of other signal routing devices there are to choose from these days? <see more>

Is the Floyd Rose Recessed Vintage Locking Tremolo the choice for your next Anderson?

Is the Floyd Rose Recessed Vintage Locking Tremolo the choice for your next Anderson?

Intonation continues to challenge guitarists so innovation continues at Floyd Rose and their Retro-Style Recessed Vintage Locking Tremolo has become a favorite here at MESA Hollywood. Not only does it have a classic retro-style look but most importantly, guitars using it stay in tune under the most aggressive use. The Floyd Rose Retro-Style Recessed Vintage Locking Tremolo is the perfect compliment to Tom Anderson guitars. Being both great looking and extraordinarily functional it’s easy to understand why it’s our choice for so many of the Andersons we spec out.  - <see more>

The 4x12 Rectifier Cab -­ There is no bigger tone!

Let’s face it… Nothing sounds as huge, bold and punchy as great amp plugged into a MESA® 4x12 Rectifier® cabinet. That’s not to take anything away from their smaller siblings but unless you’ve experienced the majesty of a 4x12 Rectifier cab you’ve yet to truly understand what fuels the fire of Rock Legends and inspires those incredible riffs that elevates them to stadium filling icons.

When it comes to 4x12 Rectifier cabinets, there are two distinct & different sounding quad boxes: - <see more>

Which MESA/Boogie Mark Series Amplifier is for you?



Which Mark Series Amp is for you? This can be a tough question to answer because they're all really fantastic. Those amplifiers now bearing the Mark Series name (Mark Five™, Mark Five: 25™ and Mark Five: 35™) along with the new JP-2C™ offer those essential features and tones that make their predecessors so well loved but combine these with modern design elements attractive to today’s guitarists.
