Mesa Boogie Lonestar Special 1x12 Combo Amplifier bought new in 2014 in mint condition. Used less than 10 hours and is still under warranty. An outstanding combo amp that delivers that big Mesa tone. Includes cover, manual, and foot switch.This Versatile Combo Makes a Stellar Stage and Studio AmpThe Mesa/Boogie Lone Star Special guitar combo amp lets you bask in all-tube Class A goodness! The Lone Star Special gives you two independent channels, each of which lets you assign one, two, or all four EL84 output tubes for 5, 15, or 30-watt power - you can call up full power for plenty of clean headroom on one channel while assigning lower power to the other for creamy overdrive! Each channel offers a full range of EQ, gain, master volume, and reverb controls, so you get complete control with the Mesa/Boogie Lone Star Special.Mesa/Boogie Lone Star Special 1x12 Combo Amp at a Glance:The magic sound of EL84s running pure Class AAlways be in the power clip sweet spotSingle-ended circuits preserve the most musical harmonicsThe magic sound of EL84s running pure Class AWhere its big brother - the Lone Star - boasts the huge warmth and headroom of 6L6 power, the Lone Star Special delivers seductive tone and an elastic feel. This Lone Star is light on weight, but heavy on personality. With its fabulously expressive and versatile pre-amp, plus the vintage mojo of EL-84s running pure Class A - and you've got a new classic amp.Always be in the power clip sweet spotReal-deal vintage tone is all about tube power and the way it clips. The challenge for guitarists is that the power clip sweet spot is tied to the amp's wattage and your playing volume. The Lone Star Special bypasses this traditional limitation by offering three separate power configurations - each with its own wattage window: 30W, 15W, and 5W. So you get the exact amount of power you need, per channel, on demand. Thirty Watts, loud and proud from all four output tubes, punches through the mix and is ideal for playing with a band in mid-size venues. Fifteen watts coaxes soulful expressiveness from two EL-84s basking in a luxurious electron bath. Both these circuits run pure Class A in a push/pull configuration. But what really makes the Lone Star Special live up to its "Special" moniker, is its ability to switch down to five watts of single-ended power euphoria.Single-ended circuits preserve the most musical harmonicsIn push/pull circuitry, the second harmonic is cancelled out when the two halves of the waveform are rejoined in the output transformer. Unlike push/pull, single-ended circuits preserve this most musical of all harmonics. A subtle halo of warm distortion (an octave above the note you're playing) glazes your guitar sound with a delicious nuanced patina. The Mesa/Boogie Lone Star Special's single-ended 5-watt mode is perfect for recording, when your tone is all that matters.Mesa/Boogie Lone Star Special 1x12 Combo Amp Features:Handbuilt in Petaluma, CaliforniaRectifier Tracking (5- & 15-watt Mode = Tube, 30-watt = Diode)2 Fully-independent channels, each with Gain, Treble, Mid, Bass, Presence, Reverb & Master controlsAll-tube, long spring reverb with Bright/Warm reverb tone switchOutput level control, footswitchable Solo Level controlAll-tube FX loop with Send Level controlTrue Hard-bypass switch that removes FX Loop, Output Level & Solo Level controls from signal pathSlave Out with Level controlExternal Switching Jacks for Channels 1/2, Solo & ReverbAll-aluminum chassis, fan-cooled with On/Off switch2-button footswitch (Channel 1/2 & Solo) and slipcover includedPure Class A tube tone with the Mesa/Boogie Lone Star Special!Lonestar Amplifier Key Features:Handbuilt in the Petaluma, California 50 / 100 Watt Power SelectionBias Select Switch (6L6/EL34)Fixed Bias for Consistent, Maintenance Free PerformanceSelectable Diode or Tube Rectifier Tracking - Patent Pending2 Fully Independent Channels each with Gain, Treble, Mid, Bass, Presence, Reverb & Master ControlsChannel 1=Boutique Vintage Clean/Classic Breakup - Channel 2=Clone of Ch 1 or Cascading High GainDrive/Clean Switch activates Ch 2 "Drive" Control (Multi-Stage Cascading Gain Circuit)Thick/Normal/Thicker Voicing Switch (Channel 2)Full Power/Tweed™ "Variac" Switch (Patent 5,091,700)All-Tube, Long Spring Reverb with Bright/Warm Reverb Tone SwitchOutput Level Control (over all channels when activated)Footswitchable Solo Level Control - Patent 6,724,897 (over all channels when activated)Fully Buffered FX Loop with Send Level Control (over all channels when activated)True "Hard" Bypass Switch that removes FX Loop, Output Level & Solo Level Controls from signal pathSlave Out w/Level ControlFan Cooled with On/Off SwitchExternal Switching Jacks for Channels 1/2, Solo & ReverbAll Aluminum Chassis2 Button Footswitch (Channel 1/2 & Solo)
