MESA/Boogie’s Mark Series evolves with more than 50 years of innovation crafted into the new Mark VII Head, Rackmount Head, and 1×12 Combo. Iconic Boogie circuits and familiar features we’ve pioneered have been reexplored, enhanced, and melded with new voices and tools in an easy layout for players to use to dial in inspirational tones, experience the ultimate responsiveness/feel of tube amplification, and simply enjoy playing.
Within the Mark VII’s 3 Channel, 9 Mode preamp are the iconic circuits of the Mark IIB™, Mark IIC+™, and Mark IV™, the legendary Mark Series Clean, Fat, and Crunch modes, and a new modern high-gain Mode full of character and attitude (more shredding than previous Mark amps and more vocal than a Recto), aptly named Mark VII.
Ch. 1 = Clean, Fat, or Crunch
Ch. 2 = Fat, Crunch, or Mark VII™
Ch. 3 = Mark IIB™, Mark IIC+™, or Mark IV™
Each Channel features:
• Independent 3-Position Style Mode Switch
• Graphic EQ Assignment Switch (On, Off, or Footswitchable)
• Patented Watt Multi-Watt™ 90/45/25 Power Amp Switch
• Gain, Treble, Mid, Bass, Presence, & Master Controls
• Reverb Control (Footswitchable)
• 8-Position CabClone IR Select Control (back-panel)
The Boogie® Five-Band Graphic EQ, at the heart of chart-topping guitar sounds since the 70s, appears again on this Mark Series amp and acts as a powerful footswitchable or channel assignable tone shaping tool. Add dimension & ambience to the tones you’ve dialed by blending in the ideal amount of lush, tube-driven, analog spring reverb with individual controls for each channel found on the front panel of the Mark VII. A seamless, footswitchable, tube-buffered, series effects loop provides an onboard patch point for effects between the preamp and power section.
Perfectly tailor the Mark VII’s power section to the tones you craft in the preamp using our patented Multi-Watt™ Channel Assignable Power combined with our exclusive Simul-Class™ power. Simul-Class simultaneously marries the efficiency and boldness of Class A/B operation with the warmth and smooth transition to clipping of Class A to create the ultimate in vintage tube tone with modern power and headroom. Choose between 90 Watts of high headroom/tight-tracking Simul-Class power, 45 watts of harmonically complex Class A Pentode power, or 25 watts of sweet, clip-able Class A Triode power. A Bias Select switch gives players the option of swapping out the 6L6 power tubes the VII ships with for EL34s.
Our CabClone IR Direct circuitry, developed in partnership with Two Notes, offers 8 popular MESA Rectifier & Boogie Cabinet Impulse Responses to choose from per Channel for great sounding, quick & easy to use Direct recording, live front-of-house interfacing, or listening with headphones. Its reactive load provides a natural feel as well as protection for the amp when employed in those places where
cabinetry isn’t ideal or feasible. The VII’s DI Section also covers players needing an unfiltered feed for re-amping purposes by providing a ¼” Buffered Dry/Untreated Line Out.
The Mark VII employs MIDI Program Change and Control Change capabilities, enabling you to call up any one of the Channels with MIDI Program Change commands along with your processors that respond to MIDI for one-button convenience in live performance applications. A 6-button (3 x 3) footswitch ships with each amp, allowing players to channel switch and turn on or off their Reverb, FX Loop, and Graphic EQ.
Well over 50 years of everything we know about crafting the world’s best tube amplifiers has gone into our new Mark Series flagship amplifier, the Mark VII, with careful attention paid to supplying the voices and features most requested by our community of players. The Mark VII is an amplifier that will undoubtedly provide players with a lifetime of inspiration & great performance. We look forward to you plugging in, experiencing all it offers, and sharing that experience with us!
