The Badlander is the latest in a long line of iconic Mesa Boogie Rectifiers. It carries the tradition of these high performance, high gain amplifiers forward with a tighter low end, more aggressive mid character and enhanced harmonic content. Thanks to an all new preamp and EL34-fueled power section, the Badlander stakes its own new ground and pays homage to heavy sounds in its own distinctive, more percussive way.
This Rectifier is tightened up, leaned out and buffed in all the right places. It hits hard where it counts in the mids, stays tight on the bottom and yet retains the sweet sing on top and inviting feel that Mesa amplifiers are known for. This new tone is served up with greater touch-sensitive dynamic content than it's predecessors. That means no matter where you set the gain, the tone and character of your instrument and your style will shine through.
