The Triple Crown is ultimate prize of horse racing, and this Mesa Boogie is the ultimate amp! You don't need to be Secretariat to get the best tone from this amp.  It's right here in an easily portable package.

This Mesa-Boogie Triple Crown TC-50 guitar amp head is a 3-channel 50-watt EL34 powerhouse of an amp. You get everything from sparkly, chimey cleans to warm, transparent overdrive to all-out rectified distortion that'll peel the paint of the walls, all in one amp. This amp comes stock with EL84s which give you that classic British bite and crunch to the rectified goodness Mesa's are known for. But the beauty of this amp is its Bias switching which allows to swap over to 6L6 or even 6V6 tubes. This completely expands the amp's tonal range. 

This amp features a Hi gain, Lo gain, and Clean channel and gives you individual EQs, Presence, Master, and Gain controls for each channel. There is also additional switching per channel to change the gain structure. Throw in excellent reverb, Solo boost and output control and you have an amp with unrivaled control. There is no tone you cannot get with this amp.

This amp is in excellent condition and comes with the original amp cover, as well as the footswitch.  It appears that the previous owner never took it out of his studio, as it's super clean.  It's a great deal on an amazing amp, and sure to go fast!
