This Lone Star is light on weight but heavy on personality. With its fabulously expressive and versatile preamp, plus the vintage mojo of EL-84s running pure Class A, you've got a new classic amp.Always be in the power clip sweet spot. Real-deal vintage tone is all about tube power and the way it clips. The challenge for guitarists is that the power clip sweet spot is tied to the amp's wattage and your playing volume. The Lone Star Special bypasses this traditional limitation by offering three separate power configurations each with its own wattage window: 30-watt, 15-watt, and 5-watt.
This way, you get the exact amount of power you need per channel on demand. 30 watts, loud and proud from all four output tubes, punches through the mix and is ideal for playing with a band in mid-size venues. 15 watts coaxes soulful expressiveness from two EL-84s basking in a luxurious electron bath. Both these circuits run pure Class A in a push/pull configuration.
But what really makes the Lone Star Special live up to its Special moniker is its ability to switch down to 5 watts of single-ended power euphoria. Single-ended circuits preserve the most musical harmonics.In push/pull circuitry, the second harmonic is canceled out when the two halves of the waveform are rejoined in the output transformer. Unlike push/pull, single-ended circuits preserve this most musical of all harmonics.
A subtle halo of warm distortion (an octave above the note you're playing) glazes your guitar sound with a delicious nuanced patina. Guitarists at Sweetwater have found that the Mesa/Boogie Lone Star Special's single-ended 5-watt mode is perfect for recording when your tone is all that matters.Mesa/Boogie Lone Star Special Combo Features.
