The Mesa Boogie Mark VII is the new number one all-tube amplifier for the US company. This amp is full of features and can operate at 90, 45 and 25-watt power outputs. And it comes in multiple formats, making it potentially perfect for all scenarios.
This new Mesa Boogie Mark VII is packed with features and includes 21 controls on the front panel alone. The latest flagship amp of the company is designed to be flexible and to handle many situations. It also encompasses tones from the Mark IIB, IIC and IV.
Full tube, 90.45 and 25 watts
The Mark VII works at 90 watts via four 6L6. In addition, there are five 12AX7 in the preamp stage. Optionally, the BIAS can be switched to EL34 (Fixed Bias) via a toggle switch, so it is pretty flexible tone wise. The power amplifier can also be operated with 45 and 25 watts thanks to the built-in attenuator. For quiet practice, there is an adjustable headphone output on the back as well.
3 channels, 9 modes
The Mark VII has 3 channels. These are each equipped with 6 controls: 3-band EQ, Gain, Master and Presence. In addition, there are different toggle switches:
- Channel 1: Clean/Fat/Crunch, EQ/0FS, 90/45/25W
- Channel 2: Fat/Crunch/MKVII, EQ/0FS, 90/45/25W
- Channel 3: MKIIB/IIC/MKIV, EQ/0FS, 90/45/25W
Thus, this amp can be set and used extremely flexibly. Especially the third channel with circuits or tones from Mark IIB, Mark IIC and Mark IV .
Reverb, Graphic EQ
In addition to the controls for the channels, the Mesa Boogie Mark VII offers a 5-band graphic EQ. Additionally, you’ll find individual reverb controls for each channel; a classic Mesa Boogie touch!
Back: CabClone, FX Loop, MIDI and MESA
At the back are the connections for the cabinets, line out, headphone out, FX loop, MIDI in and thru/out, MIDI channel switch, MESA (for the foot switch) and selectable CabClone Box (9 presets) separately for each channel.
