The MESA BOOGIE ROADSTER 1X12
This all-tube thoroughbred shares a class with only one other amplifier - and that position is held by its brother – the mighty Road King. In fact, the Roadster isa Road King without Progressive Linkage and other rear panel features that some players fear need a higher education to navigate. The Roadster now offers the plug-and-play minded guitarist a way to enjoy a myriad of footswitchable preamp choices without the power option anxiety.
Throughout two lower gain Channels, 1 and 2, you'll discover every classic clean sound in the pairs of CLEAN and FAT modes. Once you've dialed in your ultimate clean sound, you can duplicate it in the other Channel and modify it for single note applications, a more pushed version or decide to switch to another mode for a radically different sound. Meanwhile dedicated American Blues and English Rock sounds reside in the easily clippable mid-gain realms of TWEED and BRIT. These dynamic and incredibly expressive modes would make an amazing amplifier all by themselves as they roam the zone between clean and clipped with authentic finesse.
Channels 3 and 4 contain all the mind-altering iconic sounds of the legendary Dual Rectifier Solo Headand hand you the keys to the world of high gain…both retro and future. The RAW, VINTAGE and MODERN modes cover the entire range of gain from a sweet clip, through liquid voice up to a crushing wall of tight grind and are duplicated in both Channels. This again allows you to either find a favorite sound and dedicate the channels to slight differences or, configure them for wildly different styles.
