Tube Amp Combo with 12" Speaker, Spring Reverb, Effects Loop and 2 to 40 Watts of Variable Output

The MESA/Boogie California Tweed Combo is a sophisticated Multi-Watt tube amp that hides in single-channel simplicity. Think of it as a complete set of ’50s tweed amplifiers from 2 to 40 watts of power, each offering different tones suitable for different situations. The apartment dwellers at Musician's Friend found the lowest wattage great for practice and recording; those of us who play live were able to dial in our sound at coffee shop gigs to larger stages. Read on to discover if the California Tweed fits your musical needs.

The MESA/Boogie California Tweed is versatile with vintage sounds

Powered by four 6V6 tubes, this MESA/Boogie amp offers vintage sounds right out of the box. Clean tones sparkle, and when overdriven, the 6V6 tubes roar with an organic warmth that makes you want to play. The California Tweed has five power levels: 2, 10, 20, 30 and 40 watts. Spend some time sculpting each with the gain and treble controls, and you'll be rewarded with a wild array of inspiring tones.

A real spring reverb will make you ditch digital

While there are plenty of stomps that digitally reproduce reverb, you can't beat the real thing—spring. The tube-driven tank in the California Tweed Combo adds air to a dry room; you can also dime it out to get swallowed in the surf. If you want to add pedals to the chain, a fully buffered series FX loop lets you do so without signal loss or phase issues.

The Jensen speaker has fuller sound

MESA/Boogie outfitted the California Tweed with a 12" Jensen Blackbird 40 speaker. It replicates the Jensen speakers from the original holy-grail amps of the ’50s and ’60s—but with a twist. Made with more powerful alnico magnets, the Blackbird has a tighter bass range.

A MESA/Boogie built to last

The California Tweed is constructed with marine-grade Baltic birch, a ply known for its strength and durability. For musicians who tour, this combo can handle the band van. If your tastes lean towards American sounds—blues, roots rock, country and jazz—the MESA/Boogie California Tweed is one inspiring combo. It comes with a slipcover.
