100W | Mesa Boogie 12AX7 Preamp Tubes | Mesa Boogie EL34 Power Tubes
Mesa Boogie returns to the high gain throne with a vengeance via the sublime Badlander 100. With this amp Boogie pretty much fixed every gripe users had with the original Rectifiers. The bass is tight, the fizz is gone and the harmonic content is extremely rich. For high gain tones an overdrive pedal is no longer necessary and the crunch gets extremely close to a vintage Marshall sound, thanks in no small part to a quad of EL34 power tubes.
