As the gear world continues to shift away from bulky combo amp and head/cab combinations, high-gain boutique lords Mesa Boogie have released two versatile cabinet simulator pedals to join in on all the fun.
With 16 simulations of well-known Mesa Boogie cabinets on offer, as well as a variety of microphone combinations and an inbuilt Reactive Load feature, these new pedals are aimed towards tube amp players looking to eschew the cabinet and go in direct for a portable gigging solution. The IR+ model also includes a power attenuation function, which could be an incredibly useful feature in the studio.
Check out the list of guitar cabinets modeled inside the Mesa Boogie CabClone IR and IR+ pedals below. The pedals split up the 16 simulated tones between two bands, each with eight presets, which should be enough to unlock a huge amount of tonal possibilities.
