Mesa/Boogie Triple Crown TC-50 Tube Guitar Amplifier Head (50 Watts)

Looking for an absolutely face-melting, high-gain monster? The Triple Crown TC-50 produces lush harmonics while delivering an articulated tone.

The 3-channel, 50-watt, EL-34 powered Triple Crown TC-50 from MESA Engineering(R) captures the essence of Rock with the ability to inspire new genres in a way only MESA(R) can. Emanating from the "other side of MESA" that spawned Rock's iconic Dual Rectifier, this platform features a bold set of circuits unlike anything else in Mesa's line.

From bubbly, sparkling clean sounds, rarely heard in this type of amp, to an amazingly tight and aggressive wall of Rock Crunch, to one of Mesa's most vocal, harmonically rich and gain-laden high-gain channels ever, the Triple Crown is aimed at Rock's high-gain throne! Experience a new generation of Rock Royalty - The Triple Crown TC-50!

Need versatility? The TC-50 features Mesa's handy BIAS SWITCH allowing you to swap the stock complement of EL34s with the fatter, rounder sounding 6L6. For those who want a warmer, rounder response and more easily attainable power clip, 6V6s can also be used in the EL34 setting with a direct swap over, creating a "Half-Power" scenario that exudes a more bubbly, vintage voice and creamier top end harmonic content.
