Mesa Boogie Transatlantic TA-15 Head


Humbucker Music has sold a TON of these small frame "lunchbox" amplifiers.   As the largest Orange Amps dealer in the country, we literally sold hundreds of the Tiny Terror.  We also went through a high number of Vox Night Train amps.  Well, the TransAtlantic is honestly in a class by itself.

Made right here in the USA, the Mesa TransAtlantic TA-15 is Boogie's contrabution to the micro amp world.  They may be a little late to the game, but we have to admit, it was worth the wait!

With the Mesa Boogie Transatlantic, you get three power selections.   A 5 watt single-ended Class A, 15 watt Class A, and 25 watts of Mesa's patented Dyna-Watt power.

The Channel Modes start off with lower gain NORMAL and higher gain classic versions of the iconic TOP BOOST sound in Channel 1, which includes a clever Pull MASTER on the CUT control that can be Hard Bypassed for those wanted a straight signal.  The 2nd channel houses three Modes; a beautiful "tweed" clean, a British higher gain in HI 1, and that good old classic Boogie Lead in HI 2.

The TA-15 comes with a really nice padeed gigbag that has room for the power cable and included footswitch.

You will need some form of PDF file reader such as Adobe Acrobat Reader to view the following manual.  Acrobat Reader is the most popular choice, but if you have problems with Acrobat Reader, we suggest you download the free Foxit Reader and use that. Don't download the Pro version unless you have a broadband connection because the install package is three times larger.
