Mesa/Boogie is excited to announce the addition of the Rosette acoustic amplification series to its line of products, built in the company’s Petaluma, California, shop.
The new Rosette 300/Two:Eight acoustic combo amplifier and Rosette Acoustic DI-Preamp have been designed to deliver a new level of detail and clarity in acoustic amplification. A dedicated acoustic instrument platform, the Rosette Series is designed not just for acoustic guitars, but also for mandolin, ukulele, violin/fiddle, dulcimer, cello, upright bass and other uniquely acoustic instruments.
The new Mesa Rosette 300/Two:Eight acoustic combo amplifier features two highly versatile channels and 300 Watts of power via its lightweight Class D power section driving two 8” custom neodymium speakers. At only 30 lbs., gigging musicians will appreciate the ability to easily transport the Rosette between home, studio or gig. Feature packed with Mesa’s optimized input circuitry, the Rosette offers two full-featured channel strips perfect for amplifying any acoustic instrument.
Professional features include optimized input stages for both channels, with Channel 1 providing XLR and ¼” inputs and Channel 2 dedicated to a ¼” instrument input. Mesa claims their new optimized input circuitry addresses common tone degradation issues associated with compromised dual-purpose circuits fed by universal combo jacks, standard on many acoustic amplifiers today. For tone shaping, a 4-Band Semi-Parametric EQ with 2 sweepable Mids provides a level of tone control one might expect in upscale recording or live sound consoles.
The Rosette’s on-board Effects Suite includes three options: ROOM REVERB, HALL REVERB and REVERB AND CHORUS with parameter controls for adjustment of specific effect functions in each of the three modes. An FX BYPASS feature accepts a mono ¼” cable and provides a footswitch option (sold separately) to bypass the internal effects and/or any external effects that may be inserted in the EFFECT
