What We Think

Everything you love about Mesa versatility in a compact 1x10 with 20 watts of power to boot! This is a powerful little amp for its size and has all the different tonal options you would expect from a Mesa Boogie. A shimmering clean channel with a roaring lead channel that can be set to all the crunch you might want in-between. The contour is nice for a bit of added versatility, and the presence knob allows for easy adjustment of overall tonal character. This is a great amp for the bedroom, practice room, and all kinds of smaller gigs!    

Condition: Good. Has some normal character and ageing from its years of use. 

Manufacturer's Description from Mesa Boogie

The SUBWAY ROCKET ushers in a new era of compact, portable and affordable combo amplification that boasts no compromise, quality construction throughout. Don’t let small size and the sparse layout fool you...the ROCKET is an extremely versatile single channel, Tri-Modal amplifier that provides a georgious clean sound, a soaring high gain lead and a giant, grinding crunch - way too big for its humble size. The Three Footswitchable Sounds (Modes) of world class personality housed in a Baltic Birch cab, along with our custom-designed magic ten inch SUBWAY speaker, make the ROCKET a mighty ally in the studio, rehearsal hall or anywhere else that you might be in need of Heavyweight Tone in a Bantam-watt arena. Its powerful footswitching capabilities and all the Gain a player could need, make the ROCKET well suited for Rock, Pop, Country, Top 40 or any other style where versatility is the name of the game. Players who lean heavier in the Roots or Blues direction may want to take a look at the ROCKETS' older brother, the SUBWAY BLUES. This simplified SUBWAY focuses on power section clipibility with a Tone-packed, stripped pre-amp perfectly matched to the same twenty-watt burner. Looking to the ROCKETS' Rear Panel assures that your interfacing needs are covered. A parallel Effects Loop with a MIX Control provides tone insurance for even those questionable effects. Three speaker jacks ( one 8 Ohm and two 4 Ohm ) are provided to ensure the proper impedance match to the many types of speaker enclosures. A RECORD / PHONE OUTPUT JACK is provided to capture the ROCKETS' soulful character direct to tape or into your own personal headset. The SILENT RECORDING MUTE SWITCH LOCATED TO THE LEFT OF CENTER ON THE CHASSIS’ UNDER SIDE and just beneath the Rear Panel, is a handy feature for those late night sessions when live speaker volumes are just too loud or not needed. As you can see, the ROCKET provides all the features any demanding pro culd need and at the same time remains simple to operate.
