Wow this thing sounds absolutely incredible! Check it out for yourself in the demonstration video above, presented by Doug West.
There's some really clever tricks going on underneath the hood on this one, including the 'low' channel which gives you the beautiful halfway sound of the pre-amp tubes beginning to break, by engaging the signal only halfway down the pre-amp string.
Here's the low-down from Mesa:
"The All New ROYAL ATLANTIC wears an undeniable crown in the TransAtlantic fleet for delivering all this Tone with a big power gut-punch and three amazing Modes of footswitchable performance. Packing 100 watts of EL34 Brit-voiced attitude, this Atlantic takes everything you love about Fullerton and Liverpool and brings it all together with rich, chest-thumping high gain in a way only a MESA can.
"The RA 100 also features our revolutionary new Channel Assignable Power Soaks that will redefine for you the concept of Power Expression and put you in total command of playing volume independent of power clip. At last… dial up a preamp sound in each of the Modes and crank in the perfect amount of power saturation at the right volume - and footswitch between them seamlessly!"
