Introducing the brand new Mesa Boogie California Tweed 6V6 Head, this one in the stock finish, Cream Bronco. In the twilight of the 1960s, SF Bay Area amp repairman to the Stars, Randall Smith, was inspired to start building his own amplifiers after coming to a deep appreciation for the â€˜50s Tweed circuits developed by Leo Fender. He loved their organic sounding voice, powerful controls and the way they smoothly transitioned from clean to clip and back again. Standing on the shoulders of a giant, Smithâ€™s (and the Worldâ€™s) first venture into boutique guitar amplification resulted in a new BoogieÂ® amp design inspired by that wonderful, timeless sounding preamp. Five Decades later Mesa has returned to pay homage. Now, drawing on these 50 years of experience, they bring forward an exciting new realm of tweed-based performance and authentic 6V6 character. A beautifully simplistic design that raises the bar in the world of vintage tone. The NEW CALIFORNIA TWEEDâ„¢ SINGLE CHANNEL SIMPLICITY, 5 POWER OPTIONS AT THE SWITCHThe all-tube California Tweed is powered by 4x6V6 Power Tubes while the preamp features 5x12AX7 and 1x12AT7 preamp tubes. Mesa's patented Incremental Multi-Wattâ„¢ (Patent 9,917,560) Power Amp, featuring Duo-Classâ„¢ (Patent 7,173,488) and Dyna-Wattâ„¢ technologies, provides five power levels, two operating-classes and three wiring options via a single 5-Way Rotary Switch!
