Tube Amp Head

The name Mesa Boogie guarantees quality for 30 years. Carlos Santana with his exceptional singing sound has always been closely related to the Boogie amps. The story goes that he gave the boogie its name, while once testing a prototype of one, naming it "little thing really boogies!" Yes, the boogies sounded great! The modern boogies are far more versatile and offer features and sound possibilities that justify their quite confident price.

The Roadking head can operate for example with 50, 100 or 120 W power - allowing one to adjust all possible stage situations. Four completely independent channels are available; in addition to its own EQ and gain section each of them can be individually combined with a certain amplifier type. This allows the creation of sounds reminding of certain originals, but also own interesting combinations using a switch. For example, an old tweed sound or the classic boogie, but maybe a super hi-gain sound with tiny amplifier?

Incredible possibilities - from vintage to Modern-Recti, and every sound is pusre tube!

Amazing

Ioannis I., 06.08.2013
there are no words to describe the versatility , TONE, and overall quality of this amp. The 4 channels give you all that you might need on stage, and the tube reverb is stunning!!!

Wirklich ein King (auch On The Road)

Thomas W. 584, 23.04.2013
Da ich schon viele Gitarrenamps gespielt habe -auch solche, die mehrere (verschiedene) Amps beinhalten- glaube ich, mir ein Urteil bilden zu können und darf vorab sagen: Der Roadking ist der beste Amp, in den ich bisher eine Gitarre gestöpselt habe. Aber Achtung: Wer den Amp kauft, sollte direkt eine große Tüte Zeit mitbestellen. Der Roadking ist kein Verstärker, den man einfach anschließt, alles auf 12 Uhr stellt und glückselig ist.
Zunächst mal erhält man ja vier unabhängige Amps, von denen zwar 1 und 2 sowie 3 und 4 grundsätzlich ähnlich sind, aber doch jeweils komplett unterschiedliche Soundrichtungen abbilden können. In jedem Amp sorgt ein kleiner Switch dafür, dass man pro Kanal nochmals zwischen drei unterschiedlichen Sounds wählen kann - und ich meine wirklich unterschiedliche Sounds. Somit also prinzipiell schon 12 verschiedene Grundeinstellungen. Dazu jetzt noch die Möglichkeit, für jeden Kanal zwischen verschiedenen Endstufenkombinationen und zwischen zwei unterschiedlichen Boxenanschlüssen zu wählen - puh, da wird die Wahl schon fast zur Qual. Es braucht wirklich einiges an Zeit, um wirklich alle Möglichkeiten einmal durchzuprobieren.
Ach ja, fast hätte ich den gut klingenden Hall (separat pro Kanal), den Fuschalter für die zweite Solo-Lautstärke und die beiden voneinander unabhängigen und per Fußschalter zuschaltbaren Effektwege vergessen. Kleinigkeiten, die aber das Leben leichter machen. Keine 10 Meter Kabel vom Amp zu den Bodentretern und nochmal 10 Meter zurück; stattdessen sind die nahe beim Amp (mit kurzen Patchkabeln ohne Soundverlust und Brummeinstreuungen) und werden über die Fußleiste rein- oder rausgeschaltet (bei mir Loop 1 für Modulationseffekte, Loop 2 für ein Analogdelay).
Was mich aber so richtig beeindruckt ist die Klangregelung, die ihren Namen wirklich verdient. Bei vielen Amps bewirkt jedes Poti vielleicht zwei oder drei klangliche Änderungen auf dem Regelweg, oft gibt es nur "dünn oder wummer", "dumpf oder schrill" etc. Beim Roadking hat wirklich jeder Regler seine Berechtigung. Alleine durch teils kleine Änderungen an der Klangregelung lassen sich wirklich total unterschiedliche Sounds aus jedem Kanal kitzeln. Wer also die große Tüte Zeit mitgekauft hat, sollte es eigentlich schaffen, jeden erdenklichen Sound aus dem Roadking zu holen.
Klingt zwar selbstverständlich, ist es aber aus eigener Erfahrung nicht: Neben Amp und Gitarre spielt auch die richtige Box eine entscheidende Rolle beim Erreichen des Traumsounds. Schön übrigens beim Roadking, dass sich Grundrauschen und Nebengeräusche selbst im absoluten High Gain Bereich in wirklich erträglichen Grenzen halten - das kenne ich von vielen anderen Amps auch anders.

Fazit für mich: Ich habe leider keine Tüte Zeit mitbestellt und habe daher meine endgültigen Sounds wohl noch nicht ganz gefunden - dafür kann ich aber zu jeder Probe etwas früher anreisen und die Zeit nutzen, um jede Woche immer wieder etwas herumzudrehen und immer wieder neue Soundentdeckungen zu machen.
Abschließend etwas Jammern auf hohem Niveau:
- der Hall klingt klasse, aber leider sind die Regler auf der Rückseite angebracht
- das Netzkabel ist fest mit dem Chassis verbunden; da wäre mir die übliche Lösung mit einem abnehmbaren Kaltgerätestecker-Kabel lieber (ok, zumindest steht man nicht 200 km vom Proberaum entfernt auf der Bühne um beim Aufbau festzustellen, dass man das Kabel vergessen hat)
- zumindest für den Roadking I gibt es im Netz bei Meinl eine deutsche Bedienungsanleitung. Klar kann man die weitestgehend auch für den Roadking II nutzen, aber eben nicht komplett und auch erst nach dem Download/Ausdrucken. Wäre es bei dem Preis des Amps wohl zuviel verlangt, auch für den Roadking II eine deutsche Anleitung zu erstellen und die womöglich auch noch (ich weiß, sehr dreiste Forderung) in Papierform zu dem Amp zu packen?
