From Our Research Team:
This 1x 12" Combo Packs an Astounding 90 Watts of Power!Though the Mesa/Boogie Electra Dyne Combo tube guitar amp features a very easy-to-use 6-knob layout on its front panel, you'll be blown away by its tonal flexibility. Inside its ultra-portable 1 x 12" chassis you'll find a powerhouse of an amp that's loud enough for any stage — the Electra Dyne Combo is capable of producing a hefty 90 watts, thanks to its Simul-Class power section (equipped with 6L6 tubes but compatible with EL34s as well). Great-sounding reverb, a bypassable effects loop, slave-out functionality, and 2-button footswitch are also included with the Electra Dyne Combo.
Electra Dyne Combo 90-watt, 1 x 12" Tube Combo Amplifier at a Glance:
A ton of tonal flexibility lurks behind a simple front panel
The Electra Dyne packs a ton of functionality and tonal flexibility behind its front panel's simple-to-use, 6-knob layout. Deeply rooted in the best of the Brit lineage, the Electra Dyne takes modified English gain sounds and sorts them into Lo and High regions. These two choices are combined with a retro-minded, American-voiced clean "channel" and linked to one mini-toggle that gives you three of the most classic sounds in Rock and Roll on one switch! And unlike other amps of this style, footswitchable modes and the finely tuned control interface allow many players to stomp back and forth "across the pond" — without touching a single control!
Dial in the power section of your dreams
Adapt the Electra Dyne to your tonal needs (and volume needs) with Mesa/Boogie's patented Simul-Class power section. It blends the efficiency and headroom of Class A/B Pentode operation with the sweeter clip and enhanced harmonics of Class A-style wiring. Choose between the Simul-Class quartet of 6L6 power tubes for 90 watts of authority or, switch down to a pair of tubes using Class A/B operation for a bouncy, easier-clipping 45 watts. You can also load the Electra Dyne with EL34 tubes for a brighter Brit-style voice, thanks to the switchable Bias Select function.
Add some "air" with great-sounding onboard reverb
Want to add even more dimension to the Electra Dyne's great tonality? An onboard all-tube reverb gives you the lush texture you need, and it's voiced perfectly for this amp. The reverb circuit can be switched-in to be active in all modes, defeated in either Lo or High gain Modes (Clean remains active), or hard bypassed, which removes the entire circuit (including the Reverb tube) from the signal path — this flexibility makes it a purist's delight.

The Electra Dyne
by Michael Smith from Baton Rouge, LaThis amp is really cool. Great cleans and a wide variety of tones from the lo and hi gain channel. You can get killer blues and gospel guitar and if your a rock player it will scream. It's easy to dia... read more [+]l in a good usable tone but that does not mean that there is not versatility. This amp covers a lot of ground and has quite a few different possibilities. I have only had mine a week but I'm already getting a variety of good tones, Now it's just about picking the ones that work best. close [-]

Full of Tone
by josh from Littleton, ILThe first time I played this amp was at a music store and I didn't really open it up volume wise. I was pretty impressed though. Almost a year later, I picked this amp up and when I got it home and ... read more [+]strummed that first chord with the amp screaming...well, let's just say, I told my wife if I ever get rid of this amp - shoot me! The 1x12 sounds HUGE! Great articulation and very balanced from channel to channel. Gonna pick up a crunch box to try to get a little heavier tones out of it...IMO, best amp Mesa makes...and it's built like a tank! close [-]

I need this amp yesterday
by Mark McDowell from Orlando, FLI was amazed by this amp, had to go back and play it a second time. Short of $3500+ boutique handwireds/customs or rarities like Dumbles, the BEST major brand amp. I was completely skeptical about ... read more [+]3 channels sharing the same eq, but on the MBED it works. I couldn't make this amp sound bad, no matter where I set it. The simplicity means you'll always get it right, no looking for those lost settings, no killing the balance between channels and forcing your soundman to suddenly ride your fader, or shocking your singer. It's also the cleanest, warmest sounding MB I've ever heard. Also the most even tempered, no sudden "jump" spots on the volume. The immaculate tone, fool proof simplicity. I'll be surprised if we don't see a lot of touring pros picking these up in the next year. close [-]

I spent two days with the Mesa/Boogie Electra Dyne Combo amp at Gearfest 2010, and I was blown away. I knew it was a fantastic clean amp, but didn't realize that lurking under those pristine clean tones was an overdrive monster waiting to be unleashed. No matter what we tried, it sounded amazing, and the reverb is definitely impressive as well. If you don't need 29 channels and 432 options, but want an amp that just flat out DRIPS tone, give this one a try - you won't be disappointed.
You've never heard a 1x12 sound like this. The bottom is rich and full and the mids and highs are perfectly balanced. I'm use to hearing this type of tone out of a 4x12. Whether you're playing rock or jazz this amp has what it takes. You'll love it!
