Mesa Throttle Box and Flux Drive reviewed in TopGuitar Magazine

TopGuitar is proud to inform, that the June issue of the magazine features a review of the Throttle Box and Flux Drive electric guitar effects pedals from Mesa. Below are some excerpts from a review by gear department editor Grzegorz Ufnal:

“The main purpose of the Throttle Box is to create modern hi-gain distortion and this is what it does really well. You get a whole lotta gain with this thing.”

“Flux Drive captivated me from the very first moment. With neutral settings, meaning the eq knobs set on noon, no matter the gain level, the sound is always good or even excellent!”

“The effects are manufactured by hand in a production house in Petaluma. They all have true bypass and provide volume boost of up to +20 dB. They look fantastic, and their sound is a confirmation that Mesa engineers know perfectly what they’re doing.”
