MESA Captured Their Greatest

Sonic Drive Studio: “That tone is very nice. It just fits in the mix like a glove.”

In this video, Jon Symons of Sonic Drive Studio presents the MESA Reference Signature Collection for TONEX. There are 70 Tone Models in the pack representing 5 iconic MESA amps. Jon demos many of them in the context of fully produced songs using different guitars.

Have a listen. You'll hear how impressive MESA Reference is for metal tones and beyond.

I want to give you an idea of how versatile this pack is in the quality of the EQ curves, the cabinets, the mics, and all that stuff, but also the amounts of gain.

I like this pack a lot. It has a very nice character and I love MESA/Boogie amplifiers!

The chunk and saturation and clarity were just awesome with that model. I started with the Chuggy Chug preset. It's a great one for lower tunings. It's a typical recto but has a very nice and refined quality. It just fits in the mix like a glove.

You get a sneak peek into MESA/Boogie's private amplifier collection and try the finest pieces. I found tones that work for me with ease. But of course, you can also tweak the models to suit your taste.
