Mesa/Boogie Badlander 100 Guitar Amplifier Head (100 Watts)

Boasting two identical channels, the Badlander 100 head can be attenuated from 100 down to 50 or 20 watts so you can dial in the perfect sound anywhere.

Delivering a sonic and weight profile that's a bit more trim, the Rectifier Badlander 100 holds its own while adding a distinct tonal character to the Badlander Series. Even more aggressive sounding, yet with an inviting, effortless feel, it's buffed and ready to go places where less output power is the call.

Two identical Channels feature the same 3 dynamic and duplicated Modes as its 100-Watt counterpart. CLEAN, CRUNCH and CRUSH supply the gain, shaping power and an urgent personality to navigate most ensemble and virtually any recording environments.

Here in the Badlander 100, the 2-Channel preamp hooks up with two different and perfect power displacements that enhance everything from clean to clipped to wildly saturated. The 100 & 50 Watt setting delivers bold authority and the highest headroom while the 20-watt setting finds the power tubes re-wired for Triode operation that unveils greater clipping potential and a mid-scooped, harmonic-laden response that reveals trademark EL34 Tone.

A Unique Sonic Profile with Crushing Character
Sometimes less is more, and if that's your mantra, the Badlander 100 is a perfect fit. Weighing in at considerably less, there are physical considerations at play for sure. Yet the Middleweight contender in the Badlander Family has its own story to tell when it comes to defiant attitude and a rebellious nature. Some feel there is a unique benefit to lower wattage amplifiers, often described as a sense that top end travels more freely and read more quickly through the circuit. While perhaps a bit over-simplified, truth be told the Badlander in 100 Watt form does display that characteristic along with it's bouncy, easy to play nature.

CabClone IR with 8 Mesa Virtual IR Cabinets On Board
The Badlander 100 is also the recordists dream realized. It features Mesa's first onboard CabClone IR and it delivers seamless DI with Channel Specific IR Assignment of the 8 virtual Cabinets and a Reactive Load that sounds and feels great. Together with the new sounds and the 100 and 50's clip-friendly power range, the most versatile and recordable Recto ever is created, even in "silent mode" when you can't use your favorite cabinet!

The CabClone IR delivers newfound flexibility, portability and previously only dreamed of convenience. You now have the ability to go direct silently or with your cab, for recording, stage or headphone practicing with instant access to 8 real MESA cabinets mic'd in a Pro Environment and library storage for more. It really doesn't get any better in terms of having consistent tone from venue to venue, with or without a speaker cabinet, your choice.

The built-in, channel assignable CabClone IR Virtual Cabinet Simulator & Reactive Amp Load comes preloaded with the following 8 Authentic MESA Virtual Cabinet IRs.
