The new Mesa Boogie Cabclone Cab Simulator

Editor General News, Mesa Boogie

New from Mesa Boogie- Introducing the CABCLONE™ – Cabinet Simulator!


The CABCLONE™ is a passive Cabinet Simulator/Speaker+Mic alternative with a built-in Amp Load. It provides a direct interface of your guitar amp’s Speaker Output to the input of a mixing console, microphone preamp or even direct to your converters (recorder) with or without the need for a speaker cabinet. It’s also a Compensated Headphone Driver that delivers a great sounding, great feeling headphone-friendly version of your amp’s Tone that’s perfect for late night practice sessions or anytime you want to play without others listening.


Whether for ‘direct’ live performance, recording or just personal enjoyment of your favourite amp with headphones, the Cabclone is a great sounding and feeling tool for any guitarist needing to capture great amp sounds quickly and easy.
