1979 Mesa/Boogie Mark IIA Combo

*This is a used amp in very good condition

*This is a consignment item

$2,399.00 plus $50.00 shipping 

Observations:

Powerful, ultra-loud and big-sounding, this classic late-70s 60-watt combo is capable of delivering fat cleans and unmistakable Boogie gain in its ground-breakingly compact form factor. Stock speaker was replaced at some point with a heavy-duty Electro-Voice speaker to handle the high volume this amp can deliver. Condition is very good for an amp of this age, with a few small tears and dings in the tolex (mostly on the rear of the amp) and two small perforations in the grille cloth.

From Wikipedia: 

"The Mark II introduced channel footswitching. It was not referred to as the "Mark IIA" until the Mark IIB was issued. It was also available as a head (a standalone amplifier), which could be hooked up to a number of different speaker combinations, although a 1x12" cabinet was the most common. The preamp gain on the Mark II occurs after the tone controls and so, according to Mesa/Boogie, the IIA has a "tighter, more focused sound" than the Mark I. The Mark IIA's control panel was extended from the Mark I's to include a separate master volume control for the lead mode, and various push/pull switches including Pull Bright, Pull Treble Shift, Pull Gain Boost, a separate Pull Bright for the lead mode, and of course, Pull Lead. The 1/4" jack previously marked "1" was changed to just "Input," and "2" was changed to "Foot Switch."
