This Mesa Boogie Lone Star 1x12 23" Wide Cabinet is custom loaded with a Celestion Cream Speaker.
The medium-width, rear-loaded Mesa Boogie Lone Star® 23 extension cabinet offers the ultimate balance of generous low end fullness and punch and sweet, open back clarity and brilliance. Cabinets with a single 12" speaker offer that elusive "openness" - tone that sings from the cone of the speaker (compared to 2x12s which have a little more emphasis on punch and projection). Similar to MESA's classic WideBody 1x12 in size and weight but with Lone Star styling, the Lone Star 23 represents the perfect blend of size, weight, portability, great looks and TONE!
With a 90-watt power rating, the Celestion Cream is purpose-built for vintage tones, whatever kind of amp you use. By applying new technologies and manufacturing methods developed during the creation of their Creamback speakers, they have been able to deliver a higher power rating while preserving the very essence of an alnico guitar speaker.
Delivering a glorious, laid-back attack, the Cream exudes warm lows and a brilliant bell-like chime. It has smooth and organic mids, further characterised by a fine-grained detail that adds a high-definition quality to the vocal range.
The Cream has been specially created to bring alnico class to all kinds of amps from 1-watt to 90-watts. It conveys a satisfying warmth, detailed expressiveness and exceptional musicality, even at low power levels.
The 23" Mesa Cabinets will fit their Medium Chassis heads for great compact rigs, like the Lone Star head or Mark V head, as well as their compact heads like the Express 5:25+, Mark Five:25, Recto-Verb 25, and Mini Rectifier.
ALL MESA® ENCLOSURES are made using the finest Void-free, Marine Grade Baltic Birch. Super strong rabbet corners are glued and nailed and speaker baffles are fitted with superior dado joint construction and braced. Grilles are wrapped around a separate grille board, 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.
