Introducing the brand new Mesa Boogie California Tweed 6V6 2:20 1x12 Combo, this one in the stock finish, Cream Bronco.
Beautifully Simplistic, Tweed Performance in a new Compact Package.
In the twilight of the 1960s, San Francisco Bay Area amp repairman to the Stars, Randall Smith, was inspired to start building his own amplifiers after coming to a deep appreciation for the 50s Tweed circuits developed by Leo Fender. He loved their organic-sounding voice, powerful controls, and the way they smoothly transitioned from clean to clip and back again. Standing on the shoulders of a giant, Smith’s (and the World’s) first venture into boutique guitar amplification resulted in a new Boogie® amp design inspired by that wonderful, timeless sounding preamp.
Five decades later Mesa returned to pay homage with the original California Tweed 4:40. Now, they’ve distilled the essence of that tweed-based performance and authentic 6V6 character in a new, more compact format. A beautifully simplistic design that raises the bar in the world of vintage tone: The new California Tweed™ 2:20 20 Watt 1x12 Combo.
A quick glance at the front panel of the California Tweed 2:20 reveals single-channel simplicity. Channel features
include Normal & Low Inputs, Gain, Treble, Mid, Bass, Presence, Reverb, & Master Controls. Mesa's legendary vintage all-tube, spring reverb with external reverb switching jack and a fully buffered, tube-driven series FX loop round out a feature set that delivers everything you need for golden tone, and absolutely nothing more.
3 POWER VOICES, ONE SIMPLE SWITCH
The California Tweed 2:20 is powered by 2x6V6 Power Tubes while the preamp features 5x12AX7 and 1x12AT7 preamp tubes. Mesa's patented Incremental Multi-Watt™ (Patent 9,917,560) Power Amp, featuring Duo-Class™ (Patent 7,173,488) and Dyna-Watt™ technologies, provides three power levels, two operating-classes, and three wiring options via a single 3-Way Rotary Switch.
Choose from the following power options:
- 20 Watts - 2x6V6 Class A/B Pentode – Fixed Bias
- 10 Watts - 2x6V6 Class A/B Triode – Fixed Bias
- 1 Watt - 1x6V6 Pentode, Single-Ended Class A – Cathode Bias
Fixed Bias (20 and 10-Watt Modes) and Cathode Bias (1-Watt Mode) both provide consistent, maintenance-free
SINGLE CHANNEL SIMPLICITY
The California Tweed 2:20 features a single channel with Normal (clean to overdrive) and Low (clean) Inputs, Gain, Treble, Mid, Bass, Presence, Reverb, and Master Controls, giving you everything you need to dial up your ideal TONE quickly and easily. The Vintage All-Tube Spring Reverb is equipped with an external reverb switching jack (footswitch and cable sold separately) for remote activation.
THE PERFECT PARTNER FOR YOUR PEDALS
Whether you choose to run your pedals straight into the input or through the included fully buffered, tube-driven series FX loop, the California Tweed 2:20 delivers an ideal platform for pedal users in a compact 26.4-pound 1x10 combo that expands vintage tone and defines portability.
The California Tweed series is what Mesa likes to call “Vintage Expanded.” When it comes to vintage, low-wattage tone and feel, no amp offers more than the new California Tweed 2:20. Harken back, bounce on forward, while never sacrificing one drop of golden California Tone.
