Super-versatile All-tube Combo AmpIf you're looking for one amp that can cover a whole range of pure tube tone, then the Mesa/Boogie TransAtlantic TA-30 is it! This incredible amp combines the American-made quality, the convenient portability, and the classic good looks that made the TA-15 such a hit, with a whole list of exciting new features and performance enhancements. From the studio to the stage the TA-30 has the tones and the options you need. Both of the TA-30's channels feature Multi-Watt assignable power with Duo-Class and Dyna-Watt technologies, which lets you set them independently to Class A 15-watt, Class A 30-watt, or Class A/B 40-watt operating mode. But that's not all.
You can also set the voicing of each channel, allowing you to select from clean British and overdriven British tones on channel 1, and three different tones on channel 2, including a clean American tone and a classic Boogie high-gain tone. On top of that, the TA-30 features a channel-assignable, all-tube, long spring reverb with independent channel controls. You can toggle the TA-30's channel assignment from the included footswitch, and you can add a second optional footswitch to toggle the reverb, making the TA-30 the ultimate live amp. With the push of a single footswitch, you can go from a glassy clean lead with plenty of headroom, to a ripping solo lead or a gritty rhythm tone with the perfect amount of breakup.
The TA-30 2 x 12" combo amplifier takes all of this flexibility and adds a pair of perfectly matched 12" speakers into the mix. Lightweight and perfectly portable, you'll have no problems carrying the TA-30 2 x 12" combo amp from gig to gig, back to your rehearsal space, and even into the studio. To make onstage positioning even easier, the TA-30 2 x 12" combo amp comes equipped with a set of casters, and although you probably won't want to stop playing it long enough to bother, you also get a handy slip cover too.

Worth Every Penny
by Gil from Houston TXThis amp is basically 5 amps in one. It sounds great in all 5 modes. Rich warm creamy tones! Sparkling cleans to screaming overdrive. This amp has it all. The Dyna watt switch it great allowing y... read more [+]ou to run each channel and a different wattage simultaneously. You can run your cleans at 30 watts for maximum head room and dirty channel at 15 watts for great tube hi-gain saturation without ear damaging volumes. Unless your playing a 20,000 seat stadium you have no need for a 100+ watt amp. Do yourself a favor and get this one. Mesa components have to test within 2% of the original spec. That means the tone you heard in all those demo videos you watched is the tone you get when you buy one. Most amp manufactures have a 20% component tolerance. Imagine playing your guitar within 20% of being in tune. I've have a vox and an orange and they sound good, but every time i plug into my TA-30 it sounds GREAT. Yes it's expensive but you get what you pay for. Its worth every penny. close [-]

That vintage sound you have in your head can now be heard.
by Nick Wivinus from Twin CitiesI love this amp! I currently also own a Roadster head, a stilleto ace and 4 differant Mesa cabs, I liked all my amps, I love this one. It is very musical and full of warm soul. I have had vintage fend... read more [+]ers, all sorts of Marshalls and more, but Mesa has it nailed. The footswitch is right, one button for channel and the other for effects on/off. Most other amps the second button is for something worthless like reverb or solo, with the effect on/off I can use my TC G-system or a string of petals, leasurely set it up while playing until I need the effect and then click it on. No frantic tap dancing needed! Best of all this little puppy sings in ways old AC30tbs or marshall blues breakers can only try. A simple guitar-cable-amp setup sounds fantastic with this amp. I mostly use this open back with the Black shadow speakers on top of a mesa closed back 2x12 with Vintage 30s and it blends so nicely. close [-]
