This vintage "Blue Stripe" Mark III is in incredible condition. This amp originally began it's life as a 1 x 12" Combo before being re-housed into this custom Boogie box. While the box does have a spot for the standard spring reverb tank, this Mark III is the non-reverb model.

One of the most important amps Mesa Boogie's history, the Mark III launched in 1985 and brought a third "crunch" channel the party, offering even more versatility to an already-winning formula of paint-peeling volume and a wider range of tones than any of the mass-produced amps of the time. Slightly revised each year from 1985 - 1989, most of these amps will come with Reverb and Presence controls on the rear panel and, though it was optional, the 5-band graphic equalizer made it onto a majority of Mark IIIs.

The Mark III was delivered in a variety of configurations -- 60- and 100-watt heads and 1x12" combos, as well as with the "Simul-Class" power section from the Mark IIB which runs the outer pair of power tubes (either EL34 or 6L6 as triodes) in Class-A while the inner pair of 6L6s runs Class-AB, making the amp switchable from 75- to -15-watt operation, such as this example.

The amp functions flawlessly and ships with a Boogie badge (not currently installed) as well as a footswitch.
