The new 3-channel, 50-watt, EL-34 powered Triple Crown TC-50 from MESA Engineering captures the essence of Rock with the ability to inspire new genres in a way only MESA can.

From bubbly, sparkling clean sounds, rarely heard in this type of amp, to an amazingly tight and aggressive wall of Rock Crunch, to one of Mesa's most vocal, harmonically rich and gain-laden high-gain channels ever, the Triple Crown is aimed at Rock's high-gain throne! Experience a new generation of Rock Royalty The Triple Crown TC-50!


Need versatility? The TC-50 features a handy BIAS SWITCH allowing you to swap the stock compliment of EL34s with the fatter, rounder sounding 6L6. For those who want a warmer, rounder response and more easily attainable power clip, 6V6s can also be used in the EL34 setting with a direct swap over, creating a "Half-Power" scenario that exudes a more bubbly, vintage voice and creamier top end harmonic content.


Mesa's legendary lush all-tube Reverb drenches the TC-50's three Channels with a beautiful 3-D halo and provides you with assignable choices on where to use it for the best results. Additional features include MIDI for true connectivity and a number of ways to access the amazing sounds and pro features in the TC-50. A STORE toggle switch allows simple one-touch writing of your footswitchable functions to any of 256 MIDI Program Numbers. There is also a MIDI Channel mini Rotary Selector for syncing of the MIDI Channel to be used by your controller of choice.

The CabClone D.I., is featured as a convenient live or recording interface for direct input to a live or recording console (mixing board) without the need for a mic and youll find the full compliment of voicing options have been included; CLOSED BACK, OPEN BACK and VINTAGE, for increased versatility and different sound styles. A HEADPHONE out feature allows for personal enjoyment of the amplifier when it is not possible or you simply prefer to play without a speaker.


If you're a fan of the work we do here at MESA, youve got to experience what weve captured in the new Triple Crown TC-50. Dressed in traditional design with a hint of modern style, get ready to experience the new generation of Rock royalty The Triple Crown TC-50!. A new level of versatility delivered with an immediacy of attack and gut-punch midrange all its own in our line.

Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreWinnipeg (Wall St.), Manitoba
I bought one of these a year ago and still love it. It's voiced like a British amp, but I've gotten some pretty crushing progressive metal tones out of it with the help of a good overdrive pedal. Very versatile piece of kit, and the rackable feature makes for a very clean setup in my studio.
