ROCK ROYALTY HAS A POWERFUL NEW KING!

TC-100 Front Panel

Introducing the MESA/Boogie® Triple Crown™ TC-100™. The exciting new 100 Watt model brings bold authority and amazing control via Multi-Soak™ Power Attenuation delivering big venue horsepower to the same footprint as our award-winning TC-50™, adding only 11 Pounds!

Mesa Boogie Triple Crown TC-100 Multi-Soak feature.
Multi-Soak™ Attenuator in each Channel offers five power options, from 100 to 50, 20, and 7 down to 3-Watts of low power clip-ability.

The new full-featured 100-watt Head sits in a sleek chassis that can be rackmounted. Built around 4xEL34s the TC-100 is designed to feature the best sonic characteristics of rock-inspired amps from the 70s up through today.

MULTI-SOAK™ - MORE HEADROOM ON STAGE, MORE CONTROL AT HOME.

Nothing has the grunt and kick of a 100-watt head, but how useful is all that power without control? The new TC-100™ offers punch and aggressive performance, easily tamed with the flick of a switch for home or studio use. Our Multi-Soak™ Attenuator in each Channel offers five power options, from the full 100-Watts of power and headroom, incrementally descending from 100 to 50, 20, and 7 down to 3-Watts of low power clip-ability, expanding the versatility of each channel exponentially.

EXCEPTIONAL TONE CONTROL & YOUR CHOICE OF EL34, 6L6, OR 6V6 POWER

Looking for a single amazing do-it-all amp? The TC-100’s all-tube amplifier is powered by 4xEL-34 Power Tubes / 6x12AX7 & 1x12AT7 Preamp Tubes. However, similar to the TC-50, our Bias Select Switch provides the option to swap the stock compliment of EL34s with the fatter, rounder sounding 6L6 or lower powered 6V6, which reduces all power settings by 50% to further shape your tone! In addition to 100 Watts of shapeable power, three channels deliver pristine Clean, aggressive Crunch, up to massive Gain. Each Channel is fitted with a voicing switch; DRIVE in Channel 1, TIGHT in Channels 2 and 3.

“I firmly believe that the TC-100 is the amp I've been searching for my whole career. The gain structure is classic MESA, with added saturation and clarity keeping the bottom end tight and thick. Exactly what I need tonally; warm, rounded, gained-up chunky tone, with tight low-end allowing for plenty of articulation. I also encounter a lot of different sonic scenarios while on tour. A great amp can sound great in one room, and not so much in another. With features like a built in attenuator and "tight' toggle, I can dial this thing in and be confident in my rock. The TC-100 is a beast...MESA/Boogie has outdone itself.”
