Mesa-Boogie Mark III 1 x 12″ combo 50W

 

Mesa Boogie Mark III guitar combo amplifierThe Mesa Boogie Mark III is a versatile amp that is much louder than one would expect from a quoted 60 watt output. Many different sounds are available from the three modes and EQ is also assignable to bypass except when in Lead mode, but the Mark III is still easier to use than the overly-complex Mark IV. These amps are usually requested by artists with a vaguely jazzy direction but are probably just waiting to come back into fashion…..
