Editor General News, Mesa Boogie

Mesa Boogie have just announced three cool new pedals over at Musikmesse in Frankfurt. Let’s have a look at them:

Flux Five

This Powerful new EQ version of the FLUX-DRIVE adds boogies classic Five Band Graphic EQ and footswitchable HI/LO performance Modes  for increased shaping power and enhanced stylistic versatility. The Graphic EQ can be applied to both HI and LO Gain Modes enabling you to have a global EQ curve, or it can be applied to either gain Mode separately allowing you to have two “preset” sounds and gain signatures to switch between. However you choose to utilize all this potential, the warm rich FLUX-FIVE overdrive is sure to inspire you and bring out your best. SSP£249


Boogie Five Band Graphic

Boogie® Five-Band Graphic – Legendary “Boogie” 5-Band Graphic EQ in a Pedal! For well over four decades now the Boogie Five Band Graphic EQ has been at the heart of chart topping guitar sounds and it’s hard to ignore the impact its now-classic “V-Curve” has had on modern guitar sounds and popular music. Boogie now offer this powerful tool in a stand alone pedal format that packs the same shaping power and hand-built in Petaluma, CA quality as  found in Boogie’s high-end amplifiers. Whether used in front of your amplifier’s Input or in your Effects Loop, it gives you a footswitchable Tone option you can employ on demand. And when it’s not engaged, your sound is pure and unaltered thanks to the Hard Bypass Feature. SSP £199

Throttlebox EQ

The new THROTTLE BOX EQ™ combines the enhanced shaping power of the popular Boogie Five Band Graphic Equalizer with footswitchable HI/LO performance Modes and easy Top Panel access to the previously internal BOOST feature. Like the original, this expanded THROTTLE BOX includes two modes but here they are controlled by a HI/LO footswitch that enables you to have two gain regions to choose from during live performance. The EQ can be assigned to either or both of these Gain Mode choices so that it becomes active with the desired Gain Mode selection. There’s also a MID CUT control that allows global scooping of the mids in addition to whatever you might do with the Graphic sliders. SSP £249
