Mesa/Boogie Releases the CabClone Cabinet Simulator DI

Mesa/Boogie is excited to announce the addition of the new CabClone Cabinet Simulator DI and Compensated Headphone Driver, expanding its line of award-winning guitar amplification products hand-built in the company’s Petaluma California shop.

Aimed at taking guitar cabinet simulator performance to a higher level, Mesa’s team set out to address the needs of the professional studio, home, and gigging guitarist or serious “silent” guitar practitioner. When given all options, a large percentage of guitarists still prefer the natural sound from their amplifier of choice and a mic’d speaker cabinet. Many would benefit if provided a way to capture true amplified guitar sound without the need for a mic or a cabinet, and often the resulting volume in noise restricted environments. The CabClone has been developed to meet this objective with pro studio grade sound quality and realistic feel, offering some unique features in this category and price range.

Usable with or without a speaker, as a combined power load soak (On-Board Load defeated when speaker connected to thru jack), the CabClone captures the signal from the amp’s speaker output and simulates the sound of a mic’d cabinet without damaging the amplifier. This Internal Load feature is essential but lacking in many other products in the category and price range. For the recording or home artist with limited space, restrictive volume considerations, or simply those who want to experiment with speaker cabinet options, the CabClone offers three popular cabinet style and tone options including open back, closed back and vintage 4×12.
