Mesa Boogie Pedals 2013

Mesa Boogie recently announced four new bad ass overdrive pedals – these pedals are: Tone-Burst, Grid Slammer, Flux-Drive, and Throttle Box. Below are the details along with some sweet ass tone samples from Mesa/Boogie:

MESA Pedals are built by the very same artisans that create the Award Winning Mark Five, the legendary Dual Rectifier and the new TransAtlantic TA-30. These pedals feature the same quality components, craftsmanship and inspiring performance as all of our custom amplifiers.

They’re all hand-built in our one and only shop in Petaluma California…. the Home of Tone! And every MESA pedal is backed by our legendary Customer Service and our long-standing commitment to musicians worldwide since 1969!

Tone-Burst

The TONE-BURST Boost/Overdrive offers a virtually transparent gain range usually associated with “clean” boost pedals. However, the TONE-BURST has enough gain to boost your guitar to the threshold of clip and slightly beyond, making it far more useful for a variety of applications. It’s incredibly powerful for adding boost, drive and/or EQ to any guitar and amp combination. Whether using it as a utility to boost the output of single coils to match a humbucker or as a subtle overdrive when a standard overdrive may be too much, the TONE-BURST is an incredibly useful and expressive pedal that makes the best things sound even better!

Grid Slammer

The GRID SLAMMER Overdrive is an overdrive pedal that produces a variable boost in gain over a wide range with a classic, guitar-centric midrange bump that enhances many different playing styles. It’s a true overdrive “specialist” that covers an amazing array of what many top players consider the most expressive and musical ranges of overdrive. From sweet, subtle breakup to a harmonically smoldering overdrive that can both sting and sing, the GRID SLAMMER sets a new bar in legendary overdrive!

Flux-Drive

The FLUX-DRIVE Overdrive+ is an overdrive for those who want more of all the best things from an overdrive! It has more liquid gain and enhanced sustain that easily feeds into rich harmonic overtones making it incredibly addictive and inspiring to play, especially to enhance a crunch or higher gain amp channel! It also offers a more complete tone-shaping network with individual Treble and Bass controls. This architecture makes the FLUX-DRIVE a more complete preamp with added versatility beyond that of most overdrive pedals.

Throttle Box

The THROTTLE BOX Distortion serves up all genres of ROCK with cut and aggression, but retains the signature warmth and organic sonic quality found in all our instruments. While its main strengths lie in higher-gain sounds, it’s also versatile and the lower gain options shouldn’t be overlooked for classic rock or howling blues. It also features a unique Mid Cut that scoops out midrange to produce the signature Boogie “V” EQ-curve that so many artists have employed in our amps to create the world’s heaviest guitar tones!
