Description & Specs

You already know MESA® Pedals are built by the very same artisans that create the Award Winning Mark Five™, the legendary Dual and Triple Rectifier® and the soulful new vintage-voiced offerings, Fillmore and California Tweed. Now here are three exciting new hand-built overdrive pedals spanning the entire range of gain and stylistic spectrum.

Cleo™ commands the lower end of the gain scale anchoring Blues, Roots, Indie Rock and even doubles as a hearty Boost, while it enhances, not covers up, the sound of your instrument. With sweet, open top end clarity and not too much saturation, it allows you to craft anything from a subtle boost up through urgent mid gain drive to harmonically-rich overdrive, all in the spirit of Tradition.

Progressing along the gain spectrum, the transparent boost/overdrive CLEO™ is joined by the vintage-inspired, medium-gain DYNAPLEX™ and the higher-gain GOLD MINE™.

Find your sound among these three new catalysts, combine them to create a new Tone all your own or keep them all on deck to cover the entire Ball Park of sounds you may need regardless of the Gig. Whichever path you take to enhancing your Tone, rest assured you’ve invested in quality and service unparalleled with a Brand that’s been around for a half century and will be there for you should you ever need assistance.

Like each and every MESA product, these pedals are built using the same quality components and craftsmanship and are filled with the inspiring performance found in our custom amplifiers, all of which are hand-built in our only Shop in Petaluma California, USA—the Home of Tone!

Controls
LEVEL is the master output level and it controls the amount of signal provided to the host amplifier, GAIN determines the amount of gain (overdrive) in the signal path, TONE This provides simple, global adjustment of the entire range of frequencies with one control, DIP SWITCH is a selectable EQ Voicing Switch located in the lower right edge of the bottom circuit board inside the unit under the Bottom Plate. Removing the Bottom allows access to this switch offering you two EQ curves. Select either a Mid-Scooped EQ response that excels at Rock Chording with the EQ ON setting (as Shipped) or a flatter, punchier, more equally balanced response that retains the Midrange frequencies and fills in the sound with the EQ OFF. The latter can be effective for single note soloing, especially at lower gain settings where you may want more focus, definition and body. Again, the unit is shipped set to the EQ ON/Mid-scooped position. Push the dip switch toward the Left to remove EQ circuitry and obtain midrange balance and a more even response.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days.
