Fifty years in the making the California Tweed™ Series reinvents “Vintage” Americana Tone, with a Single Channel, “old school” offering. Equipped with all the essential features you need but none of the complexity you don’t and the delicious tone and feel of 6V6 power tubes in every viable wattage you could want. Experience an addictive, inspiring feel guaranteed to keep your fingers on the fretboard.
Now, with five decades of amp design & crafting, MESA returns to pay homage and bring forward an exciting new realm of tweed-based performance based around the tone & characteristics of 6V6 power tubes. The all-tube California Tweed™ is a beautifully simplistic design and a truly an inspired masterpiece. Four 6V6 Power Tubes, a single 12AT7 plus five 12AX7 preamp tubes play their key role in its golden Americana tone. MESA’s patented Incremental Multi-Watt™ Power Amp, featuring Duo-Class™ and Dyna-Watt™ technologies, provides five power, two operating-classes and three wiring options via a single 5-Way Power Switch!
The California Tweed's front panel is all about single channel simplicity. Here you find Normal & Low (Cleaner) Inputs, Gain, Treble, Mid, Bass, Presence, Reverb & Master Controls. MESA's legendary vintage all-tube, long-tank, spring reverb with external reverb switching jack (Reverb Footswitch & Cable Sold Separately) and a fully buffered, tube-driven series FX loop round out the features. The California Tweed takes us back to what initially attracted players to Boogie® amps and adds to it elements that have grown such a loyal fan base. A perfect amp to celebrate 50 years of Boogie® and a must for any serious MESA collector!
