The Mesa Boogie Electra Dyne is an easy-to-look-at, simple-to-use amplifier that has way more tone than you might expect hidden artfully behind these six knobs and a switch.

Deeply rooted in the Best of the Brit lineage, the Electra Dyne takes modified English gain sounds and sorts them into Lo and High regions. These 2 choices are combined with a retro-minded, American-voiced clean "channel" and linked to one mini-toggle that gives you 3 of the most classic sounds in rock 'n' roll on one switch. And unlike other amps of this style, Mesa Boogie has added footswitchable modes and a the finely tuned control interface that allows many players to stomp back and forth across the pond without touching a single control.

Add to this stealthy versatility the patented Simul-Class Power that blends the efficiency and headroom of Class AB Pentode with the sweeter clip and enhanced harmonics of Class-A-style wiring. Choose between the Simul-Class quartet of 6L6 for 90 watts of authority, or switch down to the Class AB pair for a bouncy, easy-to-clip 45 watts. You can also load the Electra Dyne with EL34 type tubes for a brighter Brit-style clip thanks to the switchable Bias Select.

Lush, deep, all-tube Reverb adds a whole new dimension to the Brit-inspired scheme and raises the bar to new heights. The Electra Dyne's Reverb circuit can be switched-in to be Active in all modes, defeated in either Lo or High gain Modes (Clean remains active), or Hard Bypassed, which removes the entire circuit—including the Reverb tube—from the signal path for the purist.

I need this amp yesterday.

By Mark

from Orlando, Fl

I tried this amp in a store 2 days ago...and then went back yesterday just to play it again. I only tried it cause they didn't have any MK5s in stock, but I changed my tune pretty quick. I couldn't believe that 3 channels sharing the same eq could work so well, but it does. I actually couldn't make the amp sound bad, no matter how hard I tried. It's also the cleanest, warmest sounding booger I've ever heard. Also the most even-tempered accross the knobs. Doesn't get Recto-nasty, but way versatile. Would trade my HK triamp and Fender VibroKing for this amp. I think it may be the best major-brand amp to ever come along.

Unbelievable. You gotta hear it

By Russ

from Raleigh, NC

For all the publicity that the Mark V got, this amp flew completely under the radar. This amp has to be the easiest Mesa to dial in I have ever played. It's the first Mesa where you can start with all the controls around noon and it sounds good. This thing will do fender cleans. It will do ACDC crunch. It will do all out metal. Once I played on it, I had to own it! Great job Mesa!

Finally the Sound I wanted.

By Lyn

from Seattle,WA

I tried out so many heads and combos and nothing came close. Me, being a hobbyist, wanted something that sounded great without 100 different nobs and buttons to mess with. My band was blown away by how loud this thing can get. It has the purest clean tones around and with a name like Mesa on it, you know that it will retain it's value. The only complaint that I have is that this combo is the heaviest combo out there. Bring your roadies!

Mesa Versatility In A Box of Simplicity

By Rick R

from Park City, Utah

Played the Electra Dyne 5 or 6 times in GC out of shear curiousity. Finally, bought it and now my beloved Mesa Mark IV is up for sale. It has the biggest, rounded sound of any amp I've played... and I have played and considered ALL the major boutique amps. Only amps in this category of tone are the Bogner Shiva, New PRS's, some Engl's and the THD Flexi 50... but they all cost much more or don't offer as much for their price, like reverb, combo version, 2 foot switchable gain stages, etc. Hand made in Cali, I commend Mesa, the original boutique company, on answering the call of many guitarists for putting out a pure tone box that sings to many different styles of players and genres of music.

EXACTLY what I've been looking for...

By CrimsonWring

from NJ

I can only speak to playing the 1x12 combo amp in two GC stores, but I am completely in love with it. I've gone back at least 3 times to be sure that what I "think" the sound is in memory is actually the way the amp plays. I have been looking for exactly this type of amp...fender clean w/ british gain, but rich, low, & warm instead of edgy. I've used it w/ both my Strat Ash Deluxe & Les Paul Traditional and with a few minor tweaks to the knobs it sounds fantastic with both. Too many amps force their own sound upon the guitar...this amp allows each to breath in their own way. I'm also VERY impressed with the versatility of controls for such a simple design to ensure the sound is very consistent and each "channel" has it's own bit of character while still staying true to the overall sound the amp is intended for. If I could afford one immediately, I'd already have it. On a side note, I'm very happy to see that GC will be carrying the 2x12 soon, as this is my typical combo preference.

Simplicity At Its Best

By TheDistortionist

from Southern California

Do not get the idea that am a Mesa Boogie fanboy. I turn a blind eye and ear to almost all of their sterile, lifeless sounding products. I just could never justify the price for a Lonestar, Stilleto, or Recto. They seemed to be all hype. Then I fund this MONSTER. I'm a big fan of modded plexi type amps and little EQ options (shorter sinal chain = better tone), so I gave it a shot. Plugged in some Les Paul copy. BOOM. Big, clear, even notes came singing out of this little 1x12 combo amp, without me even having to tinker with the controls. It completely stomped on (in terms of presence) the JVM halfstack my buddy was using behind me. The quality of gain on this thing is phenomenal. Mesa should try to focus their attention on more amps like this and the Express, another really nice amp. Don't be fooled into thinking this thing is some scooped metal monster. She sings and screams and dances better than anything else I've heard. I'm gonna go back to Guitar Center and see what she would sound like with an overdrive in front. I really could go on for days, but just do yourself a favor and try one out for yourself.
