Every single part of the signal path truly is a “Tone control”. From its beginning where the flesh on your fingertips meet the string, to the plectrum used to strike it, to the pickups that transmit the voltage generated by its vibration, to the cable where the voltage is finally fed to the Speaker, and everything in between… each and every element plays a critical role in the overall response and character of the sound.
With our Signal Management products we address areas to improve performance in the peripheral components connected to our amplifiers. In virtually all Guitar and Bass rigs, Tone is won or lost at the Big Three Crossroads; Input, Effects Loop and Output. Of the three, Output, while still affected by peripheral interconnects, is less sensitive than Input and Effects Loop, and is more impacted by impedance and “loading” factors. Input connections are by far the more sensitive of those junctions with capacitance, impedance and distance traveled being big factors in performance. In today’s pedal-heavy era, these things become a constant challenge to great Tone.
We now offer a progressive Line of Signal Management solutions aimed at preserving, and in many cases improving, the performance of your MESA–or really any brand of amplifier–you may use. These products provide remedies, upgrades and enhancements, all aimed at preserving the integrity of your signal. Whether it’s the Instrument to Amplifier, Instrument to Pedal-board, Pedal-board to Amplifier, Amplifier to Outboard Processing and back or all of the above… these MESA signal solutions are created with one goal in mind; ensuring your Tone is the very best it can be.
