  • Mesa Boogie Lonestar Special 2x12" Guitar Amp - Open Box / One Only

From its conception, the Lone Star series was targeted directly at exceeding players' expectations of both tone AND versatility from a vintage and/or modern boutique amp...without accepting compromise. Tonally, it must be experienced to believe as there are not enough adjectives to remotely do it justice. Simply put, the Lone Star is a sonic flood of Texas-sized proportions! The most ridiculously amazing cleans, classic breakup and high gain tones we have ever offered in a single amplifier!

Since the series launched, the stylistic momentum of the Lone Star has been overwhelming. Players and reviewers alike have bestowed global accolades on this gem, including prestigious Editor's Pick and Platinum Awards.

Introducing the Pure Class A, EL-84 Powered LONE STAR SPECIAL featuring channel assignable power that allows you to assign 1, 2 or all 4 EL-84's to either of its 2 Channels for independent Power Ratings of 5, 15 or 30 Watts!

WHAT SETS THE LONE STAR SPECIAL APART FROM THE LONE STAR?
Take the incredibly expressive pre-amp of the Lone Star with its intuitive versatility, add the vintage magic of EL-84's running Pure Class A, and a new classic is born. Where its big brother, the Lone Star boasts the huge warmth and headroom of 6L6 power, the Lone Star Special delivers seductive, bubbly tone and a sensual, elastic feel. This Lone Star is short on weight, but tall on personality.

AUTHENTIC RETRO-TONE IS ALL ABOUT POWER AND THE WAY IT CLIPS.
Authentic retro-tone is all about power and the way it clips. Yet in any given amp, the sweet-spot of power clip is inseparably tied to its wattage and playing loudness. The Lone Star Special smashes this age-old limitation by offering three distinct power configurations, each with its own window of wattage: 30, 15, or 5. Perfect Power. Per Channel. On Demand.

THE MAGIC OF PUSH-PULL CIRCUITS
In Push-Pull circuits, the second harmonic is cancelled out when the two halves of the wave-form are recombined in the output transformer. Unlike Push-Pull, Single-Ended circuits preserve this most musical of all harmonics. A subtle coating of warm distortion (an octave above the note you're playing) glazes the entire spectrum with a purring, golden halo of precious nuance. Perfect for individual playing or recording. For a full description of this technology see Randall Smith's "Class A - Exposed and Explained" on the Amplitudes Blog.

Between the two Lone Stars, you can choose to clip your power at 5, 15, 30, 50 or 100 watts.

HOME, STUDIO OR GIG READY. FINELY TUNED POWER FOR ANY VENUE
All this bouncy Class A tone blooms naturally in a trim, new 1x12 cabinet roughly half the size of its big brother Lone Star. And you can afford to pack both of these hand-crafted jewels for around the same bling-bling as a one-trick pony from the boutique corral. But don't shop price, compare tone!

Gigging at the club, rehearsing with the band, recording in the studio, tracking at home or simply finding inspiration late at night, the finely tuned power sections of the Lone Star Special transcend all these needs going where no single amp has gone before.
