MESA Roadster Combo Amp for Guitar
This all tube thoroughbred shares a class with
only one other amplifier and that is the mighty
Mesa Road King. In fact the Roadster is a Road King
but one that has been stripped down to its most
essential features. One FX Loop instead of two.
One set of speaker jacks instead of two switch able
sets. And simpler power tube switching with four
6L6’s but no EL34’s.
Up front are the same four foot-switch able preamps
– each one offering three different voicing.
Channels 1 and 2, both offer shimmering CLEAN and
fuller FAT modes so you can dial in two ultimate
rhythm sounds. And either one can be pushed over
the threshold into a low gain clip. For authentic
howling American Blues, set Channel One to Tweed.
Or, for more grind and greater urgency, set Channel
two to BRIT and leap across the Atlantic for a new
attitude in English Rock.
Channel 3 and 4 pack all the mind altering, iconic
sounds of our Dual rectifier Solo Head, handing
you the keys to the world of high gain…past,
present, and future the raw vintage and modern modes
cover the entire range of gain from sweet clip through
liquid voice up to a crushing wall of tight grind
and are duplicated in both Channels.
