Mesa Boogie Mark VII Head - Five Star Select Vintage Bordeaux

Mesa Boogie Mark VII Head - Five Star Select Vintage Bordeaux: A Magnum Opus of Tone

The Mesa Boogie Mark VII™ is the "Magnum Opus" of Randall Smith’s 50+ year career in visionary amp design. Exclusive to Five Star Guitars, this particular model features our pick of a unique vintage Bordeaux vinyl finish with a wicker grille and brown leather handle and corners. This special edition is the most versatile, compact, and powerful 90-watt Mark Series amplifier ever, offering discerning players unparalleled tonal flexibility and performance.

Legendary Design and Unmatched Versatility

Three Channels and Nine Modes

The Mark VII Head features a 3-channel, 9-mode preamp, delivering an extensive range of tones:

  • Channel 1: Clean, Fat, or Crunch
  • Channel 2: Fat, Crunch, or Mark VII™
  • Channel 3: Mark IIB™, Mark IIC+™, or Mark IV™

Simul-Class™ Power Section

Mesa Boogie’s legendary Simul-Class™ power section offers three wattage options (25W, 45W, and 90W) that can be assigned to each channel. This allows you to tailor the amp's response and feel to your specific needs, from intimate practice sessions to full-scale live performances. The combination of Class A and Class A/B operation provides a rich, dynamic, and harmonically complex tone.

Advanced Features for Modern Musicians

CabClone IR™ DI Direct Interface

The built-in CabClone IR™ DI Direct Interface includes 8 Rectifier® and Boogie Cabinet IRs per channel, allowing for unmatched tunability of direct sounds. This feature is perfect for recording or live performances where mic’ing a cabinet isn’t practical.

On-Board Graphic EQ, Reverb, and Effects Loop

The Mark VII Head includes a footswitchable 5-band Graphic EQ, all-tube long spring reverb with independent channel controls, and a tube-buffered effects loop. These features provide additional tonal shaping and flexibility, ensuring your sound is always exactly how you want it.
