Our legendary Boogie® Five-Band Graphic EQ is now available in a Pedal! For well over four decades the Boogie Five-Band Graphic EQ has been at the heart of chart topping guitar sounds and it’s hard to ignore the impact its now-classic “V-Curve” has had on modern guitar sounds and popular music. Now we offer this powerful tool in a stand-alone pedal format that packs the same tone-shaping power and hand-built in Petaluma, CA quality as those found in our high-end amplifiers.
In the early ’70s Boogie® sounds were most associated with singing, vocal-inspired lead work as Artists learned the newfound possibilities of its high gain tube preamp and it’s game-changing sustain. The Graphic EQ aboard most fully loaded “Hun-Revs” of the day found their sliders set for a subtle widening effect or enhanced Bass response to mimic bigger cabinets with the little 1x12 combo. As the era of Classic Rock faded and the dawn of Metal appeared on the horizon in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s, the potential power of this on-board tool began to be fully realized. Graphic-loaded MARK II™ Boogies became the norm and most of these on-board EQs were used to scoop the mids to extreme levels while boosting lows and highs and this “V-Curve” became a new standard... the “other sound” (non-Brit) in Hard Rock and Metal.
MESA® Pedals are built by the very same artisans that create the Award Winning Mark Five™ and iconic Dual Rectifier®. These pedals feature the same quality components, craftsmanship and inspiring performance as all of our custom amplifiers. They’re all hand-built in our one and only shop in Petaluma California.... the Home of Tone®! And every MESA pedal is backed by our legendary Customer Service and our long-standing commitment to musicians worldwide since 1969!
Why It Boogies:
"Someone could write a PhD thesis on Mesa/Boogie's scores of user-interfaced tone-shaping circuits and their permutable effects. The simplest, most powerful and iconic of these innovative tools is undoubtedly Mesa's Five-Band graphic equalizer. Developed by Randall Smith in the early Seventies, the circuit features a quintet of frequency sliders that lets players morph a Mesa amp's response far beyond what can be achieved with the tone knobs alone."Erik Kirkland - Guitar World
