All-tube Mesa stereo power amp for sale or trade.
It's the later version with Presence knobs on the front. Has a bit of rack rash, but other than that, is in excellent condition. Very clean-sounding and powerful amp, designed for the Mesa Quad preamp, but would be well suited for any good preamp. Adds little power-stage distortion to the signal unless it's CRANKED, but otherwise, has a warm, punchy and vibrant sound. My reason for selling is that I am tired of the rackmount setup and I want to simplify my rig.
Takes up 4 rack spaces (4U)
Features 2 channels
both are adjustable for 30W in Class A using just EL34s, or 95W in Class A/B using 6L6GC's and EL34's simultaneously.
Uses two 12AX7 phase inverters for each channel.
Has a 1/4" bridged input for both channels, as well as individual 1/4" channel inputs.
4 1/4" speaker outputs (two 4 Ohms, two 8 Ohms)per channel.
Currently contains Mesa 6L6GCs, EL34s, and 12AX7s all in good condition.
In trades, I'm looking for a Peavey 5150 (non-block letter version) or a 6505. Or something along those lines, punchy high gain monster. Will add some cash if the trade value of your amp is above $750.
Locals (GTA) only please. I don't want to deal with long distance transactions.
