MESA / Boogie Badlander 25 Head and 1x12 Combo Amplifiers MESA / Boogie has announced that its new Badlander 25 Head and 1x12 Combo amplifiers are now available . A tonal updating is achieved with these new amps by mating Badlander preamp circuits to a switchable 25-to-10W EL84 loaded power section based on MESA ’ s Dyna-Watt power . This dynamo delivers its own blend of Badlander tone with aggressive attack and percussive midrange while tucking up the low end , according to the company . The Badlander is also lightweight , compact , and more clip-able than its higher power siblings . While cut from much the same cloth as its forbearer , the original Dual Rectifier Solo Head from the early ‘ 90s , this model pays homage to rock and heavy sounds in a more modern , percussive way .
Badlander 25s employ a pair of EL84 power tubes operating in MESA ’ s proprietary Dyna-Watt Class A / B Pentode for added power , punch , and clarity , producing 25W or switched to its 10W Class A / B Triode setting for lush harmonics and a more liquid feel at lower volumes . A tube-driven , series effects loop acts as a circuit bridge , allowing players to patch their chosen outboard effects between the preamp ’ s end to just before the driver tube feeding the power section .

JodyJazz Hand-Hammered HH Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece JodyJazz has introduced the first hand-hammered saxophone mouthpiece , the new JodyJazz HH Tenor model . The new hand-hammered HH Tenor mouthpieces will be initially available in a limited edition run of 300 in a special rose gold finish .
Hand-hammering is the ancient art of working brass and bronze alloys to manipulate their sonic characteristics , which cymbal makers have been using for centuries . To see iif this could translate to mouthpieces , JodyJazz enlisted Paul Francis , who has designed some of the most popular and highly coveted cymbals . Hammering the bell brass blanks resulted in mouthpieces with uniquely warm and complex tonal characteristics . In order to enhance the unique tonal characteristic and response of the hammered brass , an all-new internal design and facing curve was developed . Together with its combination of a round chamber and straight side walls , the HH Tenor delivers a unique combination of warm beautiful sound with power and fullness , according to the company .
