IK Multimedia Announces AmpliTube Mesa/Boogie 2

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.
