Mesa boogie relocating.?

Post by BrentSSL » Sun Nov 14, 2021 2:22 am

So I recently heard that out in the factory in Petaluma they have been throwing out a lot of their inventory. Chokes transformers pilot lights handles all kinds of things. Also half of their staff have walked out.? There are rumblings of them having a small office for designing in Nashville and amps being built overseas. I'm a huge Mesa fan my first guitar amp was a three channel dual rectifier from 2003. I hope they aren't going to kill the brand possibly. Have you guys heard anything any thoughts and opinions?

They've been bought by Gibson.

You do not have to be a genius to see what is going to happen. History says Boogie (Gibson) will soon be making their amps in the Far East, most likely in China next to the Epiphone building. The business model demands it, money, money, money, ..... money.

Nothing new here to see, it's just the way it is.
