An amp that changed the world

The amps Carlos Santana used in the early '70s set the stage for today's modern channel-switching, high-gain amps. Mesa/Boogie got together with Carlos to create a tribute amp with the sound and vibe of his original Boogie amps. The King Snake is a replica of Carlos's amp, all the way down to the unique chassis size and the Snake-embossed lambskin covering. But, Randall Smith and the engineers at Boogie went a little further and updated the amp with some of their most popular amplifier improvements. This amp sports Mesa's full-blown Multi-Watt Channel Assignable Power with Duo-Class technology, letting you run your power tubes in any of three different wattage ratings (10/60/100) per channel - each having its own tone-bending wiring configuration and operating class! The Mesa/Boogie King Snake Limited Edition amplifier retains the original amp's voice and vibe with updated tonal flexibility.

An extremely versatile amp for all styles of music

The single-channel Mesa/Boogie King Snake amp is the original "wolf in sheep's clothing" of the guitar-amplifier world. Input 1 gives you Mesa/Boogie's original multi-stage cascading-gain mode. This input runs through Volumes 1 and 2 for fat tones ranging from clean to scream. Just mix the two controls to taste. Input 2 is a normal-gain mode that only uses Volume 2. The built-in Mid/Boost control works as a normal mid control from 1-5, but once you hit 5-10 you're adding additional midrange gain that saturates and thickens your tone. A Switchable Presence Control, exclusive to the King Snake, lets you choose a warmer, more compressed Blackface character or a brighter tone with a lightening-fast attack reminiscent of Tweed amps. Sweetwater knows that heavy-gigging musicians need flexible amps, and the Mesa/Boogie King Snake Limited Edition combo guitar amplifier fits the bill!

Choose your power output and class

The Mesa/Boogie King Snake is a flexible amp for any situation. In the studio you can set it to the 10-watt mode for the single-ended magic of pure Class A. The 60-watt setting gives you a Class A/B push-pull output that's ideal for club work. Got an arena gig? Move serious air with the King Snake's 100-watt Class A/B setting. This impressive tonal and volume flexibility is made possible by Mesa/Boogie's Duo-Class and Multi-Watt technologies that deliver multiple wattages and both single-ended and push-pull configurations in the same amplifier. Very cool.
