Mesa Boogie Lone Star Custom 2X12 Combo
This Lone Star 2X12 Combo was custom-made for us by Mesa. It has one British made Celestion 12" Vintage 30 speaker and one British made Celestion C90 Black Shadow speaker, instead of two C90 Black Shadow speakers usually placed in the Lone Star Combo; providing you with even more versitility and tone! Tone as big as Texas! Wide as the Rio Grande. Clear as the bell that rang over the Alamo. Unstoppable as a rising Texas flood. Yeah, that's some bold proclamation. But the Lone Star® backs it up.
The Lone Star is an amplifier of such extravagant tone and seductive feel that we can almost guarantee that you will experience divine inspiration and effortless expression every time you plug into it! It is that amazing! From its innovative custom circuitry, down to its new classic retro/vintage looks, the Lone Star was designed to be the new defining vintage/boutique amplifier from the original boutique amp builder!
From its conception, the Lone Star was targeted directly at exceeding players’ expectations of both tone and versatility from a vintage and/or modern boutique amp, without accepting compromise. Tonally, it must be experienced to believe, as there are not enough adjectives and expletives to remotely do it justice. Simply put, the Lone Star is a sonic flood of Texas-sized proportions! The most ridiculously amazing cleans, classic breakup and high gain tones we have ever offered in a single amplifier! It has become an instant favorite among every player in our shop and we practically had to hold a lotto within our company to qualify who got the first one! It is “stranded island” good and if you only try one amplifer this year, make sure it’s the Lone Star. But, be forewarned, prepare yourself for a new vice because it’s not just an amp – IT’S AN ADDICTION! The Lone Star will change the standard by which you measure all other amps!
Functionally, the Lone Star incorporates an impressive list of unique and extremely powerful features that allow you to tailor the character and feel of the amplifier to perfectly meet your musical needs. Welcome to Lone Star Ranch. The Lone Star’s front and rear control panels are extremely player friendly and are in themselves an expressive art form through the beauty, logic and simplicity of their design. Two-channel simplicity delivers the goods with unsurpassed versatility.
Plus, like all Mesa combo amplifiers, the Lone Star Custom 2x12 Combo is equiped with Celestion speakers especially made for Mesa Boogie in the UK!
