Inspired by Leo Fender’s original ‘50s Tweed circuitry and Boogie founder Randall Smith’s first venture into boutique amplifiers, Mesa Boogie have paid homage five decades later with the California Tweed 40.

Sound

This classic single channel design sounds full of 6V6 power amp character and is based on the timeless Tweed preamp, consisting of 5x12AX7 and 1x12AT7 tubes. Vintage tone heaven.

However, the California Tweed isn’t just a copy of an old amp. It has two voicing inputs; one providing larger headroom, glistening cleans and another that ranges from clean to pure overdriven valve tone. 

Controls are kept concise, using Gain, Treble, Mid, Bass and Presence EQ for all the control you need. Also featured is a completely tube-driven spring reverb with an external jack perfect for switching on/off in a live setting.

Features

The amp packs modern tech in with the retro too, thanks to Duo-Class and Dyna-Watt technology, meaning you can switch between 2, 10, 20, 30 and 40-Watt stages. These not only vary the headroom, output and volume, but also the tonal characteristics too.

Complete with an FX loop so your pedals won’t adversely affect your sweet vintage amp sound.
