Mesa Boogie Lone Star 10/50/100W Head
The LONE STAR™ is an amplifier of extravagant tone & seductive feel. From its innovative custom circuitry, down to its classic retro/vintage looks, the Lone Star is designed to be the defining vintage/boutique amplifier from the original boutique amp builder!
The Lone Star is laid out simply & logically. Its clean, two-channel layout provides a platform for ultimate expression with a minimal learning curve. The two channels provide the entire range of gain, from sparkling clean to totally saturated, and anywhere in between. Channel 1 is based on a traditional gain structure to produce warm clean sounds in its low to medium gain ranges. Channel 2 has a split personality and can either be set to achieve a slightly gainier clone of Channel 1 or, with the flick of a switch become a high gain preamp.
The Lone Star offers Multi-Watt™ Channel Assignable Power featuring our patented Duo-Class™ technology. This feature allows you to choose between three different wattage ratings across two different Classes Of Operation and Wiring Configurations! Select 50 or 100 watts of Class AB wired in Push-Pull for classic bold authority or, switch down to 10 watts of pure Class A magic wired in a Single-Ended configuration for the ultimate sweet harmonic content.
Choose the type of rectification you want - the stiffer, punchier response of the Silicon Diodes or the vintage sagginess of Tube Rectifier Tracking. The Power switch is fitted with Tweed (low) and ON (high/normal) settings to provide a built in variac so that incoming AC voltage can be reduced to produce a spongier feel and increased clip-ability. The pure, all-tube Reverb is fitted with a Bright/Warm switch that enables you to tailor the reverb sound to the style you are playing. The Solo feature provides an additional master output that you can trigger remotely for a footswitchable boost.
