The Mesa Boogie Lone Star Special is a twin channel guitar amplifier with a great tone and some unique features. The amp is has four EL-84 tubes, and the amp allows you to designate power from the tubes to each of the channels in anyway that you'd like, meaning that you can use as much or as little of the tube power as you'd like at a time. I believe that you can get the amp with one or two speakers, but the one that I've used only had a single 12" speaker in it. The amp also has two 1/4" inch inputs in the front for your guitar.


The make up of the Mesa Boogie Lone Star Special is overall fairly easy to understand and manipulate. Each of the two channel has parameters for gain, treble, mid, bass, presence, and master volume. There is also a drive parameter which can be switched on or off. These are definitely basic guitar amp parameters, but even if you're unfamiliar with them, you should be able to catch on quickly without using a manual.


I can't say enough about the tone of the Mesa Boogie Lone Star Special, as this amp sounds incredible. It has a very real sounding tone to it, with a lot of room for versatility. Having two channels is a big plus as it gives you the versatility necessary to play on the stage as well as in the studio. Having the ability to assign the amount of power from the tubes that you'd like to use at a time is also an awesome feature that I haven't really seen anywhere else. Both the clean and drive sounds are top notch. As far as genre goes, I'd recommend this for rock, blues, and folk more than anything else, but it will certainly work with most any genre.


The Mesa Boogie Lone Star Special is definitely a professional's guitar amp in every sense of the word. It has the tone and features to be used in just about any situation. Of course with tone like this comes a big price, but if you're looking a guitar amp to use for a long time to come that has a sound that is hard to top, the Lone Star Special is a great investment.
