Product Description

This Versatile Combo Makes a Stellar Stage and Studio Amp Bask in all-tube Class A goodness! The Mesa/Boogie Lone Star Special gives you two independent channels, each of which allows you to assign one, two or all four EL84 power tubes for 5, 15, or 30-watt power you can call up full power for plenty of clean headroom on one channel while assigning lower power to the other for creamy overdrive! Each channel offers a full range of EQ, gain, master volume, and reverb controls, so complete control of your tone is always at hand with the Lone Star.

Mesa/Boogie Lone Star Special 1x12 Combo Amp at a Glance: The magic of EL84s

Authentic tube tones

Push/pull circuitry

The magic of EL84s Where its big brother the Lone Star boasts the huge warmth and headroom of 6L6 power, the Lone Star Special delivers seductive tone and an elastic feel. This Lone Star is short on weight, but tall on personality. Take that incredibly expressive pre-amp with its intuitive versatility, add the vintage magic of EL-84s running Pure Class A and a new classic is born.

Authentic tube tones Authentic retro-tone is all about power and the way it clips. Yet in any given amp, the sweet-spot of power clip is inseparably tied to its wattage and playing loudness. The Lone Star Special smashes this age-old limitation by offering three distinct power configurations, each with its own window of wattage: 30, 15, or 5. The right amount of power per channel, on demand. Thirty Watts, bold and pure from all four power tubes punches through the mix and hangs with a band in mid-size venues. Fifteen watts cries the blues with sinful passion, coaxing expressive soul from an electron-soaked pair of EL-84's. Both these circuits run pure Class A in a push/pull configuration. But what really makes this Lone Star Special is its ability to switch down to five watts of single-ended power bliss.

Push/pull circuitry In push/pull circuits, the second harmonic is cancelled out when the two halves of the wave-form are re-combined in the output transformer. Unlike push/pull, Single-Ended circuits preserve this most musical of all harmonics. A subtle coating of warm distortion (an octave above the note you're playing) glazes the entire spectrum with a purring, golden halo of precious nuance. Perfect for individual playing or recording.
