The adventurous TransAtlantic TA-30 30W tube guitar amp head may well redefine the Brit amp genre by including preamp and power options that seem near impossible for an amplifier with such a humble footprint and manageable poundage. This TransAtlantic follows the architecture of its lower-powered sibling, the TA-15 and adds a more robust power section, gorgeous tube reverb, and a channel-assignable/bypassable effects loop. The extra horsepower and feature set on the TA-30 brings the TransAtlantic concept”and, more importantly, tone”out of the studio and into the world of pro gigging.
Two footswitchable channels navigate the Atlantic with stylistic flair and give you a passport to the best British and American preamp sounds in two straightforward groups of five controls. The five preamp modes (2 in Ch.1 and 3 in Ch. 2) are selected with a simple mini toggle located in the top position of stacked toggles in each channel.
Along with this array of iconic preamps the TA-30 offers three amazing power choices in each channel, each of which allows you to perfectly tune the power to enhance the preamp mode chosen for a given footswitchable sound. The result of all this flexibility is a fully capable live-performance amp with an uncanny sense of direction that can also be switched down to 15 watts for lower volume power-clip applications or late-night sessions.

I will get to the point. I am not a pro or do I gig. I do have ears. I havent owned many tube amps. 3 others. I have tried a handful more. It is well described by Mesas site. Tone is subjective and fine tuning is another story. Mine runs through an Orange 2x12 with a v30 and a g12h.Open back. And it isnt a vox ,but it is. It gives you old school Marshall ,Laney and a respectful touch of Mesa. Its all where you set it All the tones are similar enough but, noticably different. All in a good way... Its nothing like the TA 15. And , IT IS NOT A 30 WATT HEAD...IT IS A 40 WATTER. 40, 30 ,15....If you like Britt and a touch of Mesa check it out. And really look at the features. Its got everything you want and need without unusable overkill... Go to the Mesa site. YouTube... GC and try one through a few different cabs... Its super bad.
