The Mesa Boogie Lone Star is a tonal powerhouse. A staple amp in touring rigs and studio around the world, the Lone Star can be set up for any situation .There are plenty of options to dial in high-end cleans, crunch and high gain.
Its two channels have very different feel and response. Channel one is the best of blackface; a tone that matches some of the best clean amps from the '60s in a 100w package. It clips like a vintage amp when you start to load on the gain.
Channel two in Clean mode is essentially a higher gain variation of channel one. It has the same classic character, but this time with a couple of extra clipping stages to get some mean blues and hard rock tones. This channel also has a 'Drive' mode pile on the gain. It quickly jumps from vintage rock to heavy lead tones without the need for any external boost.
Built To Fit You
Mesa Boogie love handing tonal control over to you. So They didn't just leave it at a straight shooting two channel amplifier. They introduced a second master volume control, variable wattage switches for each channel and a low end thickness control on a 3 way switch. Both channels can be set to either 10w, 50w or 100w to suit your situation.
Yet another classy feature in the Tweed control. Turn this on and all of a sudden your amp clips harder and at lower volumes - like you would expect out of an older '50s USA amplifier. Perfect for the on-the-edge breakup cleans, made way more accessible.
Built In Reverb
The Lone Star contains a truly incredible tank reverb. Using an all tube, long spring setup covers a wide range of sounds at perfect studio grade quality. Dial in your bright or dark reverb preferences on the back of the unit.
