POLL: Your favorite Mesa Amplification logo?

What is your favorite logo from MESA?
Put in a vote!


Is there a story behind falling in love with or liking that logo?
Post up!



I'll start off by remembering back to '86, and all through high school, I would dream of the Mesa/Boogie logo on those metal grills.
They were the ultimate metal amps.
That's a short story of how it started for me.

I'm partial to the Boogie logo on Marks and the Mesa Engineering logo on everything else.
Ignore the hype and trust your ears. Play more, buy less = better tone.

My love affair began with the original Mark I (Super 60) back in the mid 70s, mainly due to Carlos Santana. Then I discovered the other Boogie players like Larry Carlton who had a similar tone that set them apart from the rest. It really was a sound like no other at that time, especially the vocal-like tone that had a bite and mid-punch yet with an unsaturated clarity at the same time. And that singing sustain - The first time I heard Europa, and the way the high G went on for days - that's what really did it for me.

So for me it's...

I love the old Boogie logo, but the Mesa Engineering is it now.

Yeah, I'm big on the "MESA/Boogie" logo for Metal, that's what I have on my Mark III/Road ready cabinet rig. Metallica made it happen for me back then. The "Boogie" logo looks great on my mark IV combo and Mark II mini stack, but it would look weird on the Mark III for some reason.

I like them all - the "boogie" logo is very old school looking to me (which is awesome) - but I really like the "mesa engineering" the best

Voted Boogie because all those references in Little Feat, Grateful Dead, those awesome early Mesas etc, plus once being in a band using Boogie ,with a logo of Little Boogie two shoes, I guess I'm brain fixated ...

I love the old school white BOOGIE logo...especially with the Wickercane...reminds me of when I was a kid lusting over the 70's Boogie ads
