Mesa Boogie Roadster

Guitar Amp Head

The name Mesa Boogie has been a guarantee of quality for over 30 years now. Carlos Santana's exceptional singing guitar sound has always been closely linked to the Boogie amps. It is even said that he is the one to have inspired the name "Boogie", due to a comment that he made while testing a prototype: "man, that little thing really boogies!". For many guitarists, the "old" boogie sound was a bit too narrow, so Mesa Engineering brought out the Rectifier series, as a kind of reaction to this sentiment. Would Randy Smith and his colleagues have guessed back then that its new product - as the Boogies once were - would become a modern classic again?

With the Roadster, Mr. Schmiedl is trying once again to show up all competitors, and one could believe that he is already heading in the right direction. 4 channels, each of which can be operated with 100 or 50 W, selectable; 3 modes per channel - that makes (let me think...) 12 sound variants, of which 4 are available immediately at the tap of your foot. Channels 1 and 2 cover pretty much everything from American Clean to Classic Crunch (American or British) - bluesmen have the option, for example, to clone the sound of channel 1 with a little more thrust and volume for solos on channel 2... big sound differences are not desired here - that is enough for many. But then to channels 3 and 4: the legendary Dual Rectifier Solo Head has been built in here and is available in Raw, Vintage and Modern Modes.

If you can not find your sound(s) with this amp, you can rely on old transistor circular saws...

Endless connection possibilities, Variac circuitry, tube-driven reverb, on each channel you can choose between diodes and tube rectifiers. It is necessary to take one's time with this amp, but once you have an overview it can be the beginning of a long friendship (Here's looking at you, kid).

Any possible speakers can be connected to the head (4, 8 and 16 Ohm connections are available), even if channels 3 and 4 are screaming for a 4x12 setup....

Mesa has what it promises !!

RomanR, 28.12.2009
After unpacking was immediately clear, without the description, which is unfortunately only in English, I plug the top certainly not to boxes and socket, but half as bad, 15 minutes later was all clear!

The possibilities of this top are enormous, each channel can be operated independently of the other with 50 or 100 watts, and you can either use either the silicon diodes or the recto tracking mode over the tubes in the preamp, so it is clear that it is First rectifier that brings really warm and clean all-tube clean sounds and also the distorted, screaming, and as for the pressure, unbeatable Rectifier Sound !!!! Channels 1 & 2 are selectable between the Modes Clean over dynamic tweed and Brit overdrive sound, and channels 3 & 4 - the Dual Rectifier equal - in Raw, Vintage and Modern.

It really took a few hours really my sounds - over the foot switch are the 4 channels, the FX loop, tuner mode / silent, solo and reverb controllable - adjusted and stage-made, but people the top grunts, pushes and conjures Everyone who is on fat rock metal sound is a sooo fat grin in the face, I'm just happy that I have the part, after some time ago my Dual Rectifier was stolen, and the decision with this top was to continue. .... Perfect!!!

So to the conclusion: RectiSound, crazy clean sounds and possibilities without end, as the EUR350.- the top are more expensive than the dual 100 times out, have fun to everyone who gets the part delivered !!!!

T te mesa roadster

lomaxblack, 27.03.2014
Simply magical, its pure and clear, from clear to large saturated, I add a hint of ts9 according to need, the top. Pro-pro, we can do anything with it, I took a risk without trying it but I was not wrong. Only small bemol the snapping in channel change ... otherwise nothing to add, try it's adopt.
With the thomann service as a bonus, send and receive nickel ... nothing to say..The top
