$995.00 20084


From Mesa Boogie –

The SUBWAY ROCKET ushers in a new era of compact, portable and affordable combo amplification that boasts no compromise, quality construction throughout. Don’t let small size and the sparse layout fool you...the ROCKET is an extremely versatile single channel, Tri-Modal amplifier that provides a gorgeous clean sound, a soaring high gain lead and a giant, grinding crunch - way too big for its humble size.

The three footswitchable sounds (modes) of world class personality housed in a Baltic Birch cab, along with our custom-designed Black Shadow speaker, make the ROCKET a mighty ally in the studio, rehearsal hall or anywhere else that you might be in need of Heavyweight Tone in a Bantam-watt arena. 

Its powerful footswitching capabilities and all the Gain a player could need, make the ROCKET well suited for Rock, Pop, Country, Top 40 or any other style where versatility is the name of the game.

Looking to the ROCKET'S rear panel assures that your interfacing needs are covered. A parallel Effects Loop with a MIX Control provides tone insurance for even those questionable effects. Three speaker jacks (one 8 Ohm and two 4 Ohm) are provided to ensure the proper impedance match to many types of speaker enclosures.

A RECORD / PHONE output jack is provided to capture the ROCKETS' soulful character direct to tape or into your own personal headset. The silent recording mute switch, located to the left of centre on the chassis under side and just beneath the rear panel, is a handy feature for those late night sessions when live speaker volumes are just too loud or not needed. As you can see, the ROCKET provides all the features any demanding pro could need and at the same time remains simple to operate.

This little devil represents everything we love about Mesa versatility in a compact 1x10 combo with 20 big watts of power. This is a powerful little amp for its size and has all the different tonal options you would expect from a Mesa Boogie. A sparkling clean channel with a second channel which can be set to creamy crunch right up to that mighty Mesa roar.

The contour control is nice for a little added versatility, the presence control allows for easy adjustment of overall shimmer, and the reverb is sweet. 

It is in excellent, unchanged condition. Used only at home and looked after well by a fastidious owner. It is an export model so it runs 240v power.

This compact yet versatile combo is a great amp for the bedroom, practice room, studio and smaller gigs. It has been cleaned and tested. It is fully functional and sounds great. Includes original owner’s manual and 3 button footswitch.
