Buying Guide: Mesa/Boogie California Tweed Amplifiers




Taking inspiration from the tweed-covered amps made in Southern California in the late 1950s, Mesa/Boogie's California Tweed amplifiers produce vintage tone with modern functionality. If you're tired of carrying your piece of history around from gig to gig, the California Tweed is a road worth traveling.

These single-channel amps have simple controls, just like the way they should be. Onboard reverb is powered by a long-tank spring reverb that nails the vintage vibe everyone is after. Mesa/Boogie's own "Multi-Watt Power Amp" allows the amp to hit the sweet spot anywhere from 2 watts to 40 watts. All these features in an easy-to-use package makes for an amp you can use for any gig under the sun.
