The AmpliTube Mesa/Boogie 2 brings four new officially certified amps and five cabs to AmpliTube 5, offering responsiveness, feel, and ultra-realistic performance.
All MESA/Boogie 2 models have been precisely crafted using IK's latest modeling technologies including DIM and VIR to sound, look and respond just like their hardware counterparts, and have been tested and approved by the R&D team at MESA engineering. IK worked hand-in-hand with MESA to meticulously recreate every circuit and control feature of each model, achieving ultra-realistic performance.
Gear available in AmpliTube MESA/Boogie 2
The amps and cabs in MESA/Boogie 2 were chosen for their significant tone-shaping innovations. Users will find 3 ground-breaking amps from MESA's current line-up and one of their most desirable models from the past.
MESA/Boogie California Tweed
MESA's California Tweed Series was 50 years in the making and designed to reinvent "vintage" tone. This new single channel, "old school" amp aims at all sounds Americana. IK's model is equipped with all the same features as the physical product including MESA's Incremental multi-watt power amp with Duo-Class and Dyna-Watt technologies, which provide 5 power, 2 operating-classes and 3 wiring configurations.
MESA/Boogie Triple Crown TC-100 head
An amazing do-it-all amp, the TC-100's all-tube amplifier features a multi-soak attenuator with 5 power options to tame its punch and aggressive performance perfectly. Three channels offer a choice of pristine Clean, aggressive Crunch, all the way up to massive Gain and each channel is fitted with a voicing switch; DRIVE in Channel 1, TIGHT in Channels 2 and 3.
MESA/Boogie Mark Five
The MARK V is really a collection of amplifiers. From the original MARK I that introduced the world to high-gain with its cascading preamp, to the Mark II - the world's first high-gain, dual-mode channel switching amplifier and its later siblings that introduced Simul-Class power. From the MARK III that ushered in the era of 3-channel footswitching performance, to the MARK IV that gave all this power individual control, the MARK V is the embodiment of the last 40 years of MESA guitar amp history.
MESA/Boogie Mark 2C+
The legendary amp of so many recording artists and one of MESA's most coveted models, the Mark IIC+ was the last of the Mark II series. The ground-breaking amp features a more sensitive lead channel, which incorporates a dual cascading drive stage. The IIC+ also features a pull Deep Bass booster and other enigmatic features that earned the legendary head its "+" rating for sounding so fantastic.
Along with these 4 amps, users will get 5 officially certified cabs featuring California Tweed and RoadKing models with a range of configurations and a choice of Jensen or Celestion speakers. Also included are two extra speakers from IK's work on the California Tweed, which they can swap into any cab.

Flare is a dual-function pedal with a tube-like booster and a 1970s-style ring modulator effect that can be played separately or together.
Flare’s ring modulator is based on the iconic tone of the original Dan Armstrong Green Ringer. This vintage classic was made famous by Frank Zappa who loved the unusual modulations created by generating a harmonic octave over notes. Messiah’s version offers two control knobs: a “Sparkle” tone attenuator and output Level control. Its taupe-gold body, purple and green knobs and stick-figure rock ’n’ roller holding up a flame convey an appropriately rockin’70s vibe.
In a unique twist, Messiah’s Flare pairs the ringer with a warm tube-style boost instead of a fuzz. Flare feeds the booster into the ringer for an extra punch, while preserving the Green Ringerspirit. The ringer side also turns any fuzz into an octafuzz, and it has the ability to quiet signal background noise fed through it.
The booster side features a single Boost knob to control the MOSFET circuit, making it very tube-amp-friendly with a warm, organic boost and gain of up to 32dB.
The pedal is a distinct improvement over the 1970s pedal that inspired it. “Most ringer pedals don’t track well,” Tom Hejda, owner of Messiah Guitars. “The player can’t rely on repeating the same effect even with the most consistently played notes. We carefully matched the components, so our ringer follows your every move, producing that slightly dirty octave you expect on demand.”
Messiah developed this vintage octave pedal with flexible features so that people who love that messy, dirty Zappa-esque sound can get there with ease but there’s also something for those who have not fallen in love with fuzz or the Green Ringer alone. Flare offers an array of sonic options while retaining simplicity in the controls.
Each Flair Pedal Includes:
- 3 control knobs: Boost, Sparkle, and Level
- Two effects – Ring Modulator and Boost – can be used together or separately
- Space-saving top side jacks
- Durable, cast aluminum alloy 125B enclosure with fun artwork
- Easy to see, illuminated True-bypass foot switch
- Standard 9V pedal power input

This feathery little guy is a joy to play because of its incredibly quick response to your right hand - much faster and more expressive than your typical auto-wah pedal.
If it looks like a duck, acts like a duck, and QUACKS like a duck, then it must be a duck. That's how we came up with the name for our new envelope filter. This feathery little guy is a joy to play because of its incredibly quick response to your right hand - much faster and more expressive than your typical auto-wah pedal. Trevor explains how this is possible in the launch video, as well as gives a demo on Le Canard’s operation.
The attack control determines how quickly the filter responds to the envelope, and the decay sets how quickly the filter releases afterward. The range controls which frequency spectrum the filter does its magic on. Add to this relay-based full-bypass switching with failsafe, and you've got one crazy little quacky beast. It is so expressive that you'll want to give up on your rocker-wah forever.
The MayFly Le Canard envelope filter features:
- Super fast responding envelope follower. Touch it and it jumps!
- Range control to dial in the character of the filter
- Attack control to control how fast the filter moves on that first touch
- Release control to control how slowly the filter slides back to baseline
- Full bypass using relays with Fail SafeTM (automatically switches to bypass if the pedal loses power)
- Cast aluminum enclosure with groovy artwork
- MSRP $149 USD ($199 CAD)

All MayFly pedals are hand-made in Canada.
