This was an excellent amp from Mesa Boogie while it lasted. It was a 55 watt three channels with six different modes. Each channel had two separate modes for each giving it the six modes. You have a clean channel, a crunch channel, and an overdrive channel. Each channel was extremely usable and convenient. To top it all off you got a spring reverb and solo boost for soloing.

This amp has some crunch to it with its typical Mesa Boogie style mega gain. This amp could crunch just as good as any other Mesa Boogie amp in their product line. Mesa Boogie is also known for their great clean tones. So the first channel isn't lacking in any way either.

SOUNDS

This amp I believe was the introduction of the Roadster and Road King series. It has all the same channels, modes, and features but just is a 55 watt version. I love the way this amp sound on the clean channel and the crunch, but this thing lives in channel three on the modern switch mode. This thing will shake down walls with it over the top gain and distortion.

This amp will sound good with any guitar you through at it. I prefer a humbucker equipped guitar with the amount of gain this amp has in store. I feel the rectifier type tone natural attracts the humbucker installed guitar.

OVERALL OPINION

These amps have been discontinued fora while now. You can find them in the classifieds pretty easily for right around $600. not that bad or a price for an extremely versatile amplifier.

I would recommend this amp to anyone who can't afford a Dual Rectifier, Roadster, OR Road King and doesn't mind less power. It still gets plenty enough power and will shake walls...literally.
