Mesa Boogie Express 5:50
Experience 6L6s like they were meant to be with this offering from the brain trust at Mesa Boogie – sparkling clean with a focused, rich bottom end. As the gain is ratcheted up, the 6L6s remain smooth like glass, meaning that no matter where the knobs are set, you’ll be rewarded with something expressive. This combo is capable of running in Class A/B at 50 watts, or Class A at five watts; Class A results in more breakup, midrange and sag (perfect for a vintage, bluesy vibe), while Class A/B gives the Express more headroom, meaning tighter lows and more prominent highs. Of course, being a Mesa, this amp also has a pair of high-gain huevos at it’s disposal. You want this.
