The Mesa Boogie Lone Star Special is a pure Class A, EL-84 tube-powered guitar amp head. The Lone Star amplifier offers the ability to assign power to 1, 2 or all 4 EL-84's to either of its 2 channels for independent power ratings of 5, 15 or 30W.
Take that incredibly expressive preamp with its intuitive versatility, add the vintage magic of EL-84's running Pure Class Aâand a classic Mesa Boogie amp is born.
The Lone Star Special tube amp delivers seductive, bubbly tone and a sensual, elastic feel. The Lone Star amplifier is short on weight, but tall on personality.
Authentic retro-tone is all about power and the way it clips. Yet in any given amp, the sweet-spot of power clip is inseparably tied to its wattage and playing loudness. The Mesa Boogie amp smashes this age-old limitation by offering 3 distinct power configurations, each with its own window of wattage: 30, 15, or 5.
The tube amp's 30W, bold and pure from all 4 power tubes, punches through the mix and hangs with a band in mid-size venues. 15W cries the blues with sinful passion, coaxing expressive soul from an electron-soaked pair of EL-84's. Both circuits run pure Class A in a push-pull configuration. But what really makes the Lone Star Special is its ability to switch down to 5W of single-ended power bliss.
In Push-Pull circuits, the second harmonic is canceled out when the 2 halves of the waveform are recombined in the output transformer. Unlike Push-Pull, single-ended circuits preserve this most musical of all harmonics. A subtle coating of warm distortion (an octave above the note you're playing) glazes the entire spectrum with a purring, golden halo of precious nuance. Perfect for individual playing or recording.
Gigging at the club, rehearsing with the band, recording in the studio, tracking at home, or simply finding inspiration late at night, the finely tuned power sections of the Mesa Boogie Lone Star Special Combo Amp Head transcend all these needsâgoing where no single amp has gone before.
