Manufacturer's Description from Mesa Boogie

It’s time to unleash a new member of the Rectifier Family; the Rectifier® Badlander™ 100. Tighter, meaner, more aggressive, it’s a Recto tuned for the times and up for the task of raising the bar once again in Rock tone. Experienced players know there’s nothing like the gut punch, girth and headroom of a 100-Watt head and at the top of the Badlander Family stands the Badlander 100 ready to underscore that perception again.

Two identical Channels feature 3 new super dynamic and duplicated Modes. CLEAN, CRUNCH and CRUSH repeated supply all the gain, shaping power and raw personality you’ll need to navigate any Band or Session environment. The easy to pilot 2-Channel preamp is harnessed with three different and perfect power displacements, each delivering addictive EL34 performance.

About Manufacturer

Forty-five years and thousands of satisfied customers later, MESA/Boogie® Ltd. hand-builds the fifth generational offspring of that pivotal amplifier (and many more) now known around the globe as the MARK I Boogie®; the world’s first high gain, high power, compact 1x12 amplifier. That revolutionary little combo is the “missing link” in amp design... the pivotal nexus between Vintage and Modern guitar amplifiers. When it comes to amplified guitar, there’s really just two epochs… before Boogie, and after Boogie.
