With this amp you can become the proud owner of one of the liveliest sounding, easiest operating, small caliber amplifiers there are... and you're sure to enjoy it! Many months of patient, painstaking R & D were spent developing the Studio .22 Plus so it would deliver professional quality sound that lives up to the MESA/Boogie reputation. Even though other amps have more power and perhaps more features, the Studio .22 was designed and built as a totally professional, no-compromise instrument. Once you're hooked on great amp performance, you'll find yourself playing better and enjoying it more.One of the Studio Boogie's greatest virtues is its incredible simplicity of operation. It's nearly impossible to come up with a bad sound or a wrong setting.
The ¼ inch jack is the instrument input to your Studio amplifier features Patented "Dual Mode" circuitry makes this single jack work for both Rhythm and Lead... providing very high headroom for sparkling clean rhythm and super high gain for monstrous lead playing. The ¼ inch footswitch jack connects to the Lead/Rhythm footswitch via the un-shielded cable provided. When the red LED on the footswitch box is illuminated, the Studio .22 is in the RHYTHM mode...red equals rhythm. Stepping on the button switches the amp into the LEAD mode and the light goes out. Should you lose or forget your footswitch, you can activate the Lead mode by plugging a cable into the footswitch socket and shorting the tip of the other plug against the chassis or one of the metal handle caps. The volume control, which could also be called "preamp gain", establishes the amplifier's overall sensitivity to your guitar's output. It is active in both Rhythm and Lead modes, and must be mixed in conjunction with the Master (or, when in the Lead mode, both Masters). In the Rhythm mode, the maximum clean setting is usually around 6 (varies with stronger or weaker pickups) and most players find their favorite cleanest brightest spot between 3 and 5. But if you want some break-up in the Rhythm model turn the Volume up high. In the Lead mode the Volume knob is intentionally less sensitive so that there is no need to 'Ire-set" it for the two modes. With most guitars, distortion begins around 2 with a real nice sounding blues-type tone reminiscent of old Fenders turned up loud. Settings above 3 or 4 produce the more modern, "monstrous" distortion sounds. Gain and distortion increase slowly as the Volume setting is increased, often producing the tightest, best sounding heavy crunch tone between 7 and 9.
