Is there any clean headroom or just all ROCK!


Its got reasonable clean in there. Never going to be gigging volume without going through a 4x12, but then it would be fine :) Or mic'd.

$380 is about all that's left after a big spend up this week!
On a different note, reading up this week about Princeton Reverbs and someone said a Mk1 Boogie is loosely based on one, is that true?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mesa_Boogie_Mark_Series


Randall Smith began Mesa/Boogie with a practical joke: he borrowed a Fender Princeton (a small 12-watt amplifier) from his friend, Barry Melton of Country Joe and the Fish, and "hotrodded" it by replacing the amplifier section with a powerful Fender Bassman amp and installing a 12-inch speaker instead of the original 10-inch. The resulting amplifier proved to be loud and successful, and Smith made more than 200 of these Princeton "Boogies"—a name allegedly provided by Carlos Santana, who is to have exclaimed "This thing boogies!"

A second important improvement was developing an extra gain stage for the guitar input. Smith added an extra tube gain stage to the preamp, with three variable gain controls at different points in the circuit (what is now called a "cascaded" design), creating the first high-gain amplifier. He set about designing a guitar amplifier around the new principle, and in 1972 the Mark I was released.

Very informative! So Marshall did the same with a Bassman right? it seems all roads lead to Fender!
Maybe BG will have more luck advertising his Boogie as a modded Princeton!
