Mesa Boogie Lone Star 2x12 Cabinet Black

(1 review) Write a Review

All Mesa enclosures are made using the finest Void-free, Marine Grade Baltic Birch in varying thicknesses of no less than 9 ply and as many as 14 ply. Super strong rabbet corners are glued and nailed and all backs are gasket sealed to ensure an air-tight seal. Baffles are fitted with superior dado joint construction and braced. Grilles are wrapped around a separate grilleboard, not the baffle board. Grille material is made of strong twisted jute dipped in a special coating that filters top end for a sweeter response. You simply won’t find a better cabinet.

    Exactly what I was looking for!

    Posted by Jordan on Oct 23rd 2015

    Before getting the Mesa Boogie Lone Star 2x12 + the Lone Star head (which I was able to find used at a another shop), I actually was thinking of setting myself up with a rig from Orange. I researched their many different heads and almost made a decision to get the AD30, but once I realised the AD30 did not have an FX loop, it killed my interest in it even though it had a great price for its power and tone. The rest of the other Oranges' prices were a bit more steep, so I started looking at other amp manufacturers.

    This is when I looked up Mesa Boogie. The only series I knew from them was the Rectifier series (which both the guitarists from Envy, one of my favourite bands from Japan, use at their shows); however, that series had a little too much going on the faceplate for my tastes. So I started looking at their other series of amps and stumbled upon the Lone Stars. The thing that struck me first about that series was the aesthetic. Simple yet stylish and refined. Next was the sound from the various YouTube videos I watched (Andy Timmons!). I knew at that instant these amps were what I was looking for. The head produces beautiful cleans and overdrive (which don't get too "metallic" when cranked up). From the various message boards I perused, people say the Black Shadow speakers sound a little dark, but they were perfect for my type of music (mostly Hawaiian and church worship music). I am in love with the Lone Star series and my Mesa rig is one that will be with me forever. Mesa really did hit the nail on the head with the Lone Star!

    Thanks, The Guitar Store for hooking me up with the 2x12s!
