Mesa Boogie TransAtlantic TA-15 head
Mesa Boogie Amps TransAtlantic TA-15 head
2 Channels, Mulit-Watt selectability! This all tube guitar amplifier is 12 lbs of pure tone heaven!
The TransAtlantic TA-15 from Mesa/Boogie might be small, but it's loaded with the heavy-duty features that you'd expect from one the world's great amp makers. So what kind of sonic goodies are packed inside the Trans Atlantic 15 head? For starters, the TransAtlantic TA-15 doles out the best of British and American tones (TransAtlantic, get it?), all powered by Mesa/Boogie's powerful Multi-Watt channel-assignable power amp. The incredible clean tones on the first channel "normal" mode are reminiscent of smooth Fender amps without being "ice-picky". Switch that first channel over to "top boost" mode and get that British jangle you're used to with EL-84 amps like a VOX AC-15 or AC-30.
The footswitchable second channel allows 3 configurations: Tweed (lower gain classic tone), Hi 1 (UK rock tone) and Hi 2 (higher gain US rock tone). Each channel selectable from 5, 15 or 25 watts.
A good amp does one thing well, while a great amp does many things well. The TransAtlantic TA-15 is a great amp. Using the tried-and-true combination of 12AX7s in the preamp and EL84s in the power amp, the TA-15 easily conjures British jangle (both Normal and Top Boost modes), British high-gain tones, American tweed tones, and classic Boogie lead tones. Not bad for an amp that weighs in at just 12 pounds! Better yet, the TransAtlantic TA-15's wattage is switchable among single-ended Class A, 15 watts of Class A, and 25-watts of patented Boogie Dyna-Watt power. These lower wattages are great for really pushing the power section into that sweet, sweet sag that makes tube amps such expressive tools. Mesa/Boogie might have been a late entry into the world of low-wattage amps, but once you plug your guitar into this beauty, you'll understand why they took their time — the TransAtlantic TA-15 is an elegant beast of an amp!
