Soaring, Smooth High Gain that Tips the Hat to Boogie

You already know MESA® Pedals are built by the very same artisans that create the Award-Winning Mark Five™, the legendary Dual and Triple Rectifier® and the soulful new vintage-voiced offerings, Fillmore and California Tweed. Now here are three exciting new hand-built overdrive pedals spanning the entire range of gain and stylistic spectrum. Gold Mine™ tops the gain spectrum with soaring, smooth high gain that tips the hat to Boogie, but also includes a harmonic edge that’s borderline Brit in character. Not that you can’t dial gain back for sweet, subtle overdrive—you can—but the true character emerges as gain goes up and heavier saturation begins. Up there, a violin-like quality infuses single notes with saturation that blends attack and sustain with near perfection in pedal form, while keeping the emotion in your playing at the forefront of the mix. Progressing along the gain spectrum, the transparent boost/overdrive CLEO™ is joined by the vintage inspired, medium gain DYNAPLEX™ and the higher gain GOLD MINE™. Find your sound among these three new catalysts, combine them to create a new Tone all your own or keep them all on deck to cover the entire Ball Park of sounds you may need regardless of the Gig. Whichever path you take to enhancing your Tone, rest assured you’ve invested in quality and service unparalleled with a Brand that’s been around for a half century and will be there for you should you ever need assistance. Gold Mine™ features a hidden TIGHT switch on the circuit board accessible from the bottom under the removable Lid that offers a tucked-up, tighter-tracking low end. When engaged, the bass response is trimmed back and the sound is tailored more toward rhythm playing and solo work that requires faster, more accurate tracking of the pick attack. Like each and every MESA product, these pedals are built using the same quality components and craftsmanship and are filled with the inspiring performance found in our custom amplifiers, all of which are hand-built in our only Shop in Petaluma California, USA—the Home of Tone®!

Controls

LEVEL is the master output level and it controls the amount of signal provided to the host amplifier. GAIN determines the amount of gain (overdrive) in the signal path. BASS works in tandem with the TREBLE control to adjust low frequencies. MID increases or decreases the amount of midrange frequencies. TREBLE adjusts the amount of high frequencies present in the mix and – unlike devices with just a TONE control - allows you to fine tune the high frequencies separately from the low frequencies.
