Mesa Boogie Flux-Drive

Guitar Effects

The amp blacksmith from California also builds pedals. They are all very interesting, and when it comes down to workmanship and quality, there's no reason to complain at Mesa Engineering. But what can the pedals do, and what makes them stand out?

The Flux-Drive is a highly flexible and adjustable overdrive with sufficient gain for fluent leads. Very well suited to making your crunch sounds sing or improving the tonal quality of your lead sounds: on the one hand with more gain, on the other via the truly effective shaping that is made possible by the treble and bass controls. The master level allows a futher increase of 20 dB, which makes effective clean boost possible. From vintage tubes to fierce!

Mesa Boogie Flux-Drive

01.09.2016
The reason for buying this effect is to come as close as possible to the famous Mesa Boogie tone, by using just a pedal with any kind of amp.

It worked above my expectations and I guess that many people will be happy when they realize that they can easily switch to that 'southern rock' sound, when their repertoire demands it.

In many instances, the pedal comes near to recreating some tone patterns that are vividly reminiscent of MESA Lonestar or MESA Dual Rectifier stuff.

One can operate the Flux-Drive interchangeably with a "Marshall-like" and a "Dumble-like" pedal, i.e. on a Twin Reverb amp, which is a very effective solution. In that sense, one can keep the characteristic feel of the Fender amp's clean channel, while being able to successfully simulate the dirt channel of three renown amps...

Therefore, this pedal offers great flexibility and a more than acceptable MESA tone, all in a small box. Is there anything more to be said?

Flux Drive + Tone Burst = 2nd channel of an AMP

25.01.2016
Most of these type of pedals deliver what they say: "overdrive, gain, distortion". In this case and for the first time I found a pedal that I needed to describe differently 'cuz what I heard was rich in harmonics content and creamy overtones where every singe note in the chord is clear.
This pedal reach all tones from clean to creamy liquid drive as standalone pedal. Now, when you pair it together with the Tone Burst it sounds like a 2nd channel of an Amplifier. I actually tried this out because of Russian Circles Guitar player who has this set up. Also I use it paired with a ProCo Rat 2 on the neck Position with humbuckers which provides an almost fuzzy/over the edge distortion sweet sound.
Overall I Must say this pedal is good buy, works together with the pedals mentioned above and of course it looks very cool on the pedal board :)
