Mesa Boogie Studio Preamp

Sorry, this listing is no longer available.


Mesa Studio Preamp; definitely the coolest pre I've ever used. Has lots of cool abilities and sound. Has rack scratches on top and the footswitch input on the rear is reglued. No footswitch included. Just the preamp and attached power cord.

MESA/Boogie Studio Preamp! In this compact, rack-ready package you’ll find all the basic tones that made Boogie famous – clean, warm, smooth rhythm sounds; a screaming, vicious Lead voice; and enough control to produce anything in between. The Preamp is simple and straightforward, yet sophisticated. Like all other Boogies, it’s based on a no compromise, all-tube circuit with traditional style tone controls and instant Lead/Rhythm footswitching. It includes a 5 band graphic EQ for tone customizing; a carefully tweaked, deep-sounding 3-spring reverb; a stereo effects loop that can accommodate either low-level or line-level effects; and two pairs of stereo outputs (including Recording Outputs with speaker-simulator circuitry, which will mate perfectly with either a mixing console or the front end input of most guitar amps
Similar to Mesa MarkII/III/IV/V sounds possible- the preamp was originally designed from the Mesa Mark IIC+. 2 footswitchable channels, switchable EQ and Reverb, stereo FX loop, stereo outs with separate volume controls, stereo recording outs (for recording without power amp/cab). I was using running the unit with a loop switcher into the return of a Mesa Mark V as an extra crunch and lead channel, but no longer require that many different sounds so the preamp is up for sale to someone who'll really enjoy it.
Mesa specs:

5-point EQ
"fat" and "bright" switches

1 master volume which affects both channels. Sound

It is a very versatile preamp, and it covers a range of different tones. The lead tones you can get from this thing are pretty amazing - singing overdrive and screaming distortion is all in there. The clean tones are very clean and sparkly. Metal players can also have a lot of fun with this preamp - it has tons of gain if you want it!!!
