I thought it would be interesting to see what Boogie Board Members would like to see Mesa do next. I have been playing Boogies for almost 15 years and have owned or do many Boogies. In all that time, my favorite amp has been the Blue Angel.
My ideal Mesa/what I would love to see Mesa do next is the:
Celestial-Dyne
1 Class A Channel
2 6v6, 2 el-84, 2 6v6 and 2 el-84 or switchable half powered 1 6v6, 1 el-84, and 1 6v6 and 1 el-84
9 knobs on the front: Volume, Bass, Mid, Treble, Presence, Solo, Reverb, Tremolo Speed, Tremolo Depth

Electra-dyne styling and knobs with the gold face from the Stiletto Ace available in black and sky blue.
Configuration head, 2x10 combo, 1x12 combo, 2x12 and 4x10 cabs available

This would be a great amp for recording and low gain light grind. It would have the reverb from the blue angel or lone-star special with a light dark switch. The tremolo circuit could be taken from the trem-o-verb. It would have a hard bypass fx loop. The foot switch would have an on/off for the reverb and tremolo and solo. The idea is a set it and forget it amp that has Mesa quality and the Mesa sound.

They would rather sell you a seperate power amp to plug the "SLAVE OUT" on the Mark V into. It's all about the money. :shock:

One that is loooonnnnggg overdue for a make over. Triaxis II
Rhythm1 Lonestar/ED/Roadking cleans
Lead1 ED/Stilleto/Recto Vintage
Lead2 Same yellow and red/ Recto Modern
Nix the dynamic voice and have a digital representation of the 5 band GEQ with every slider value accounted for in .5 increments from 1-10.
Just for fun, offer it as a stand alone rackmount preamp or with an integrated Simul-Class poweramp in a headshell.
Best idea I've had in a long time

:shock:



:idea: Bluetooth Midi Foot Switch :mrgreen:

with old school Simul-Class (6L6s + EL34s at the same time), with the option of using EL34s or 6L6s when in 45w mode.

:o :o :o

I would be all over this!!! I would put some different preamp modes in it though! It would need a Mark I mode in it and a separate IIC+ mode. Wouldn't mind the Edge or Tweed mode either.

Why isnt this being done?!?!?! :shock: That's a great idea. Even if you had to power it from a pedalboard, it would be one less cable to run back to the amp.

On second thought, I'm surprised they didn't incorporate a bluetooth midi controller into the new firebird x. :lol:

I think it would be fun if they built something small and inexpensive like the Marshall Class 5. Maybe a baby Mark 1.

A single channel Dual Rectifier with all of the knobs and functions hardwired and removed so that you have is an on/off switch and a couple of input/output jacks. You'd have to control the gain with the volume knob on your guitar.

I call it, "A f%&# you to old school".
