Mesa Boogie Lonestar Special 1x12" Medium

Guitar Combo AmpThe Lone Star 2x12 special 2x12 is a full-tube combo with 4x EL84 power amplifier tubes and can be operated with 5, 15 or 30 W.

A clean channel, which can conjure classic Fender sounds and can easily generate a strong, extremely harmonious crunch, meets a lead channel, with a whole range of available sounds - from soft overdrive to harder metal sounds. You can either "duplicate" the clean channel and thus make a louder or more distorted version of the vintage sound, or use many variants from overdrive to high gain. Other features include the thick - normal - thicker switch, the separately selectable output level for each channel, 2 master volumes for solos, the parallel effect loop and a reverb with the usual Mesa quality.

Moreover a 12" C90 speaker for "releasing" the sounds is built in. To prevent a hollow sound the Lone Star Special has a larger casing and thus the amp sounds much more open and bigger than you would expect from a single- speaker model.

Outstanding clean / blues / rock combo

16.01.2016
I was looking for a combo tube amplifier with excellent clean sound and a great sound with a slight distortion (if the sound just tipped). Should then still react well to the input levels of the guitar and have a nice reverb. And yes ? Some flexibility for other sounds should also be there. Since I do not live more live I wanted an amp that sounds good in living room volume.

The Lonestar inspires me - the best amp I've ever owned. The processing is excellent. Optics can evaluate everyone itself, since the amp stands with me in the living room, I like that much better than a Blackface / Silverface.

The operation is actually super intuitive. The intensity of the reverb is controlled on the back. This is really a little impractical if you change a lot for a Sternabzug at the service.

The decor is outstanding. Clean channel, then a channel for clean or distorted. Solo circuit, reverb, effect loop, watt circuit per channel. Comes with a very good manual and a little notebook, which turns on tube freaks? With lots of explanations. Oh, the amp has a fan. The is not really loud and can be switched off, however, the instructions that should be used only for recording purposes. He does not bother me.

The most important thing is the sound. The clean sound is the hammer. Nice, fender-like sound. Very plastic? 3-dimensional sound? Which comes without delay with the finger work (am as critical). The Hall is also perfect. Then distort beautiful blues and rock sounds. 5 watt position awesome. I'd say hard rock is still going very well. It is however no pedals without High Gain Amp (I played earlier the 5150, whose sounds you do not get out of course), the LoneStar probably but no one expect.

Small changes to the controllers have a big impact. You can pick out many different sounds.

I play a Strat, a SG, Les Paul and Musicman EVH. The amp loves SingleCoils. Strat / tele players can order the amp my blind. You can almost do not adjust the amp so that the result does not sound good anyway.

With humbuckers it takes for me much longer distorted the great sounds to find. Taking time, however, but great results. The sample settings in the operating instructions are a good starting point. Dry really good Rocksounds on the SG succeed very easily. Gary Moore's similar solo sounds on the Les Paul without front pedals are a little hard to get out, since my Soldano was sooner grateful. I guess with upstream effects can be a lot rausholen.

Conclusion. Anyone who plays a single coil guitar and is looking for excellent clean, blues and rocksounds can not do wrong in my opinion. Who primarily humbucker guitars plays the I would recommend the amp before the purchase but to play. It is also definitely an excellent amp but for the money there are maybe also great alternatives.
