What We Think

The Mesa Boogie Mark I Reissue 1x12 combo is one hell of an amp, in a package so small you're going to double check your ears once you hear it. Those classic Boogie tones at the tips of your fingers, and what could be sweeter than that?

A sensitive tone stack, cascading gain, and high-quality parts make this beast a jack-of-all-trades, able to get everything from spanky rich cleans to the higher gain crunch, all while retaining those signature Boogie mids you've come to know and love throughout the years. The amp is currently housing some 6V6 power tubes, so it can only be used on the Tweed mode. Feel free to explore a power tube plethora and equip some 6L6's or EL84's to navigate yourself through Mesa's output power options. Whether there's a little power sag or you're operating at full ferocity, with the volumes cranked or at bedroom levels, this amp will deliver the tone you desire at any volume you necessary.

Condition: Good, small signs of wear and discoloration around tolex

Manufacturer's Description from Mesa Boogie

CONGRATULATIONS ! You’ve just become the proud owner of one of the most influential guitar amplifiers ever made - the Boogie MARK 1 ! This is the legendary amp that introduced all of the features most in demand by players today ! The Boogie MARK 1 gave birth to the Multi-Stage High Gain Preamp, the 100/60 or Half Power switch, Direct or Line-Out the Preamp In/Out Jacks (Effects Loop) and Pull Shift functions, too name just a very few. Aside from its tremendous impact on amplifier desigh, the Boogie MARK 1 played a digantic role in shaping the sound of today’s guitarists. With its radically boosted preamp, monstrous power output and top quality rube circuitry, the Boogie MARK 1 produced tone that was unheard of in its day ! The MARK 1’S fat, warm, creamy sound ushered in the era of High Gain-Singing Sustain lead tone and quickly became the instrument of choice for many of the 70’s greatest innovators.
Carlos Santana first unveiled this tone on his early Abraxas album and the word was out ! Quick to follow were greats like Larry Carlton, Robben Ford, Eric Johnson, Al Dimeola, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Fleetwood Mac, etc...Soon the MARK 1 was staring back at coliseum audiences world-wide, looking awfully small up there in comparison to the GIGANTIC tone that it was unleashing !
For the first ever, guitarists were playing the amplifier as well as the guitar. The Tone became the springboard for the style and in many cases actually BECAME the style !
Today - well aware of the amp’s unrivaled soulfulness - many top players have stashed their precious MARK 1’S, only breaking them out for prestigous studio dates. Other players scour the pawn shops and music stores searching for a stray homeless amp. The MARK 1 has become a rare, much sought after classic. Aware of this enthusiasm and being dedicated to our customers, we decided to re-issue the amp that started it all ! We’re sure that you are going to love your new instrument and hear sweet singing tone from the first note that you play ! Born for the Blues, but not at all hesitant to Rock the House, this is THE amp for the guitarist who wants the ultimate in tone, with simple controls that REALLY work !
So - grab your favorite guitar and wail ! You might dedicate a few licks to your favorite players of yesteryear. Don’t be surprised when you cop their tone - in many cases you are playing through their amp ! We had a great time re-creating this legendary amp for you and we learned a lot from visiting our roots again. You will too ! Enjoy!
