The Mesa Engineering Triple Crown TC-50 50-watt 1 x 12" all-tube guitar combo is Mesa's supreme rock 'n' roll-voiced amplifier. Its 3-channel design offers two modes on each channel for American-sounding clean tones on the first channel, aggressive crunch on the second channel, and thick high gain from channel three. The Triple Crown TC-50 combo is also loaded with features such as MIDI-capable switching, a true spring reverb that's footswitchable, and even Mesa's impressive CabClone direct output. The Triple Crown TC-50 combo is a versatile amp with a rock 'n' roll soul.
Though the Triple Crown's three channels feature a straightforward design, that doesn't make them any less versatile and powerful than other Mesa designs. Channel One's toggle switch selects between Normal and Drive modes and can deliver sparkling performance or vintage-style breakup. Channel Two offers Normal and Tight modes to control its mid-gain voice. Rock 'n' roll players will love this channel. And Channel Three also utilizes Normal and Tight modes to deliver classic Mesa Boogie high-gain drive.
The Triple Crown TC-50 combo packs a built-in CabClone internal amp load and speaker simulator. It provides an incredibly realistic speaker-emulated direct output to plug right into the sound system or recording chain. You can still use it in conjunction with the amp's internal Celestion Vintage 30 speaker, or you can disengage the speaker for silent practice through headphones or recording. It'll also allow you to cut down on stage volume, which will help give your band a tighter, more controlled live sound.
