Used And Vintage Amps

We have an excellent Mesa-Boogie California Tweed 4:40 head here, in primo condition.  Hand-built in California, this fantastic 40-watt amp is a legendary model by one of the best names in the amp world.

The California Tweed has the ability to change wattages from 2,10,20,30, and of course 40 all at the touch of a dial. This gives you unparalleled flexibility.   It's a 6v6 powerhouse that gives you the best of both worlds, lush fat clean tones, and the all-out distortion Mesa's are known for.  This amp features high/low inputs, 3-band EQ, Prescence, Gain, and Master Volume, and of course glorious tube spring reverb.

It looks as good as it sounds with a beautiful pearl tolex, golden wheat grill, and white chicken-head knobs to match the grill. This wonderful pairs well with any cabinet, as well as any pinot noir or cabarnet. This single channel amp is suited for any playing style and any playing situation.

This California Tweed 4:40 is in excellent shape and was barely used by the previous owner. It also comes with its own cover.  For any one looking for one, look no further!
