TopGuitar is proud to announce that the Boogie Five-Band Graphic, Flux-Five and Throttle Box EQ guitar effects pedals from Mesa Engineering were reviewed in the October issue of the magazine and received a “Top Gear” editors’ award this month. The products were delivered for review by official Mesa distributor in Poland, Lauda Audio.

Below are some excerpts from a successful review by gear department editor Mikolaj Sluzewski, which may serve as reasons for the award:

“Three effects centered around the graphic EQ from iconic Mesa Boogie amps, but each of them being a completely different animal that changes your tone audibly… and irrevocably!”

“All three of Mesa’s new stompboxes place themselves on the top shelf when it comes to serial production of this kind of devices. Hand built in Petaluma, California, their construction meets the needs of a professional user.”

“Just like Boogie amps introduced new quality to the world of guitar music, each of these effects from Mesa Engineering will blow new quality to your sound.”

The latest issue of TopGuitar magazine is available across Poland in Empik and Ruch press retail networks, in the online store (, and as mobile version for tablets and smartphones using iOS ( or Android ( operating systems.
