Got my Boogie Back

Post by DC3 Gridlock » Sat Oct 13, 2018 6:59 pm

NAD and back again being a Mesa owner.

I first bought this 1982 Mark IIB in 2011, traded it five years later for a vintage Fender amp.

I regretted selling this amp ever since then. Even after owning a couple of Mark 1 RI's, another Mark IIB, and a Mark III.

This amp is pretty unique, blue tolex, silver grill cloth, Simul-Class, Reverb, an EVM-12L, and Mark IIC knobs. Never saw another Mark IIB like this one.

I liked the tone of this amp better than all my other Boogies. I saw it for sale locally and had to buy it back.

I'll attempt to post some pictures once I figure out how.

Thanks Mark,

Never thought that I’d get this amp back again. Pretty happy.

The Mesa completes my amp collection for now.

Congratulations!

I'm hoping at some point to find and buy back my old Mark IIA head. (HRG) Standard black tolex. Had later Mark IIC/III style knobs on it when it left my possession.

I was its second owner and I traded it for something big that I still have so I guess it was a good trade. About 20 years ago.

It was not stolen and I'm looking to find it and buy it back so I suspect it's OK to list its serial number. Which was either 3114 or 3116.
