About This Listing

Mesa Boogie Stiletto Trident Head in excellent condition. A great sounding very versitile amp. Includes footswitch, slip cover, manual and power cable.

The Mesa Boogie Stiletto series amplifiers were designed to pay tribute to many classic British amps while also bringing a tremendous amount of flexibility to players' fingertips. With its EL34 power section and unique preamp design the Stiletto is able to produce full blooming low end and a bright top end. Two independent channels allow for a player to have access to either clean or crunch with the flip of a switch. With its classic voicing and flexibility the Stiletto Ace seemingly reinvents classic British tones.  Rock's High Gain Alternative - Elevating EL-34 Tone from Classic to a Menacing New Realm!

Stiletto® marks Mesa’s dedication to the legendary power behind heavy rock’s British ancestry. Razor sharp and finely honed, the Stiletto is mean enough to slice right through any mix with a trademark new sound. From sparkling cleans to classic Brit crunch to a menacing new realm of high gain, our goal was to re-define the EL-34 sound and elevate it beyond the limits of previous boundaries. Just like the Rectos did to 6L6s!

Tighter, higher Bass. Lower, fatter Mids and a hazy harmonic top where luscious overtones line up in a shimmering crystalline spread. This mid-focused footprint compliments a Recto® perfectly in an aggressive two-guitar band, allowing each player to carve out a distinctive region…and own it.

Two ruthless pre-amp channels create a mighty 6 mode platform while keeping that chrome panel gleaming and simple. Channel One fashions two Clean modes, one FAT and expansive, one TITE and urgent – or can be switched to CRUNCH, which roams from a ’34-style Brit Blues clip through classic UK Hard Rock. Channel Two starts here, cloning the mid-gain presence of CRUNCH, and moves into a hellacious new frontier of modern grind with the barbed attack of TITE-GAIN or the super-layered, harmonic loaded bomb in FLUID-DRIVE. Only another MESA should consider sharing a stage next to the sinister fury of the Stiletto’s high gain thrust.
