Mesa Boogie Mark VII 1x12 Combo Amp, Custom Cream, Tan Jute
- DETAILED SPECS
The Mesa Boogie Mark VII 1x12 Combo is the "Magnum Opus" of Randall Smith’s 50+ year career in visionary amp design. This model takes that knowledge, history, innovation, and performance and distills it into the simplest, most versatile, and smallest 90-watt Mark Series amplifier ever. The 3 Channel, 9 Mode Preamp, coupled with Mesa's legendary Simul-Class Power section that offers three distinct characters across its three wattage ranges, creates a new Mark icon in terms of adaptability, soulful tube Tone, and magic feel that will serve any discerning player well.
The long-awaited "Simul Seven" leapfrogs its predecessor, the Mark Five, and the secret Mark Six prototype to arrive at the most power-packed Boogie Mark model ever in terms of Tone, flexibility, compact design, and interfacing. This do-it-all Tone machine delivers legendary Mark performance and adds two new sounds; the throwback yet infamous Mark IIB and a new modern high-gain Mode full of character and attitude aptly named Mark VII.
Joined by iconic features that put Boogies at the top of the dream list, such as on-board Graphic EQ, lush Reverb, a seamless Effects Loop, and innovative Power switching, the Mark VII showcases our CabClone IR DI Direct Interface. With identical features and great sounding IRs from our standalone CabClone IR, this built-in version allows individual assignment of 8 Rectifier and Boogie Cabinets per Channel for unmatched tunability of Direct sounds.
The Mark VII is the next Chapter in the Boogie Book of Tone and offers discerning players analog, all-tube sound, Soul, and feel in a smaller, more compact, yet more comprehensive package. With a focus on perfecting icons, bringing back beloved classics, and introducing new realms of modern high gain, all while improving the interface and the performance across all mediums, the Mark VII offers inspiration and freedom across all musical styles. This extraordinary amplifier is available in 1x12 Combo, Head, and Rackmount Head formats.

Perfectly tailor the Mark VII’s power section to the tones you craft in the preamp using our patented MultiWatt™ 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.
Mesa's 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 1/4" 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 Mes Boogie's new Mark Series flagship amplifier, the Mark VII, with careful attention paid to supplying the voices and features most requested by their community of players. The Mark VII is an amplifier that will undoubtedly provide players with a lifetime of inspiration & great performance.
