What We Think

It's hard to beat Mesa Boogie when it comes to tweakability and when they put their minds to making a British-inspired amp, you better believe you're going to be able to get dang near every sound you'd expect to get from an EL-34-based amp out of it. From super transparent clean sounds to growling, woolly high gain, the Stiletto Ace is your one-stop shop for crunch and distortion. To round out the deal, Mesa Boogie put it in a closed back cabinet for added focus and power.

This used amp arrived at our door with slight wear typical of a well-loved but well-maintained piece of gear with no tears or perforations in the tolex or grille cloth and comes with casters and a slip-cover to keep it that much cleaner! Call Soundpure today for more details!

Manufacturer's Description from Mesa Boogie

Prepare to be SHOCKED! We were. Still are. Because sometimes, things come together in a way that exceeds all hopes and plans. That’s certainly the case with our newest Stiletto®… it rocks so hard it’s guaranteed to ACE your expectations as well.

Take the Combo. (please!) Only once before has so much performance been this portable… and that was 35 years ago with the introduction of the first Boogie® Combo. What that amp did for the American Rock scene, the ACE promises to do for the British legacy. Make it versatile. Keep it powerful. Let it be portable.

Players have come to expect a great clean sound in every MESA amp, and theStiletto ACE® delivers in spades. Cleans like you’ve never heard before from an EL34 amp. Chiming transparent clarity riding atop warm breathing lows, and all this 3-D magic is delivered with stunning dynamic attack.

Because classic English Rock sounds are neither totally clean nor inherently high gain, we’ve fitted duplicate CRUNCH modes in both Channels 1 and 2. For the player who has no use for pristine clean, this mid gain mode roams the wooly landscape from nearly clean to a punchy snarling break-up.

Just before these classic sounds end, Channel 2 begins its journey into high gain realms no British amp ever dared. TITE GAIN blisters with searing heat while maintaining articulate focus. FLUID DRIVE bumps the gain and liquefies the attack to inspire your single note soloing to a new level of freedom.

Combining this new, more aggressive preamp with the brighter, faster feel of the Ace’s fifty watt power, creates a Stiletto that cuts with more depth and finesse than any of its English counterparts. Even veteran tone snobs need to check this amp.

We’ve also included our patented Switchable Rectifier® feature that allows you to tune the power supply for the feeling that best suits your style - Tube for a vintage-inspired sag or Silicon Diodes for tight tracking punch and authority.

With shocking low end that’s tight and percussive, ACE Combos Rule! Crunch you’d swear is coming from a 4x12, with top-end openness that blooms and enhances clean sounds, the Ace may be the ultimate combo… redefining portable EL34 Tone! Also available as a 50 watt head.

So stack the deck with the ultimate Brit-inspired Tone, hand-made right here in Petaluma, California. Deal yourself in…’cause the Ace lays down a handful of fresh tricks no amp from the Kingdom ever dared to play.

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.
