You already know MESA® Pedals are built by the very same artisans that create the Award Winning Mark Five™, the legendary Dual and Triple Rectifier® and the soulful new vintage-voiced offerings, Fillmore and California Tweed. Now here are three exciting new hand-built overdrive pedals spanning the entire range of gain and stylistic spectrum.
Gold Mine™ tops the gain spectrum with soaring, smooth high gain that tips the hat to Boogie, but also includes a harmonic edge that’s borderline Brit in character. Not that you can’t dial gain back for sweet, subtle overdrive, you can, but the true character emerges as gain goes up and heavier saturation begins. Up there, a violin-like quality infuses single notes with saturation that blends attack and sustain with near perfection in pedal form, while keeping the emotion in your playing at the forefront of the mix.
Gold Mine™ features a hidden TIGHT switch on the circuit board accessible from the bottom under the removable Lid, that offers a tucked-up, tighter tracking low end. When engaged, the bass response is trimmed back and the sound is tailored more toward rhythm playing and solo work that requires faster, more accurate tracking of the pick attack.
