Signal Management Solutions from MESA Engineering

Introducing New Signal Management Solutions from MESA Engineering

Four new, meticulously designed signal management solutions from MESA Engineering, designed to provide the ultimate solution to a variety of issues that almost all of today’s guitar and bass players encounter.

STOWAWAY™ Input Buffer

stowaway-wht-front011

The Stowaway™ is Mesa’s compact, 100% discrete, Class-A Input Buffer designed to remedy a whole array of Input challenges and small enough to mount underneath most pedalboards. From impedance loading and mismatching, to changes in a pickup’s character and response as a result of varying effect pedals’ input impedance and interconnecting cables’ capacitance, the Stowaway provides the stable, consistent load your instrument needs to sound as intended. £90

• Made in Petaluma, California with the World’s Finest Materials

• 100% Discrete Class-A Circuit

• Provides the tone & feel of plugging directly into a high-quality tube amp

• RFI Filtering minimizes radio-frequency interference and noise

• Provides guitar with a resolute load, segregating it from pedalboard variables and the long cable run back to the amp, for consistent tone and feel

HIGH-WIRE™ Dual Buffer

The HIGHWIRE is the ultimate all-in- one pedalboard signal loss remedy that addresses both Input and Output challenges in the same space saving chassis. Between instrument and pedals, it provides a stable, consistent load for your guitar’s pickups, ensuring your signal arrives at the first pedal intact and full of Tone. From pedalboard to the amplifier, it not only buffers the signal, ensuring optimum impedance loading and performance, but also allows for increased signal levels for extra-long cable runs via the built-in Line Driver. £185

• Made in Petaluma, California with the World’s Finest Materials

• 100% Discrete Class-A STOWAWAY™ Input Buffer Circuit

• Provides the tone & feel of plugging directly into a high-quality tube amp

• RFI Filtering minimizes radio-frequency interference and noise

• Segregated Send & Return Effects Loop provides guitar & amp with a resolute load/source for the best tone/feel

• Integrated CLEARLINK™ Output Line Driver w/+3db Level Comp Switch – Capable of driving long ¼” cable runs

• Tuner Output – Provides an “always on” buffered output separate from the main signal chain to feed tuner

• Dual Function Boost/Mute (Tune) Footswitch -Press on/off to activate Boost -Press & hold to activate Mute/Tune

• Variable, Footswitchable Boost Control from Unity up to +22db of Output Boost

CLEARLINK™ (SEND) Line Driver

clearlink-buffer-wht-front004

The CLEARLINK™ (SEND) LINE DRIVER is designed to go between the last pedal on your pedalboard and the input of your amp. It’s capable of sending either a balanced or unbalanced signal that compensates for losses in volume and Tone due to increased capacitance in long cable runs and when used in conjunction with our Clearlink Receive (Converter), it can drive balanced cable runs of up to 330 feet with unsurpassed noise immunity and signal integrity. £119

• Made in Petaluma, California with the World’s Finest Materials

• High-Speed, Low Noise Op-Amp based Line-Driver Circuit

• RFI Filtering minimizes radio-frequency interference and noise

• Provides Balanced or Unbalanced Output capable of driving long cable runs & provides amp a resolute source

• Output Level Control – Adjusts the Output Level of the integrated line-driver circuit, from Unity to +12dB.

• Balanced XLR Output – Drive cable runs up to 330ft with unsurpassed noise immunity and signal integrity.

• Unbalanced ¼” Output – Drive long ¼” cable runs direct to your amp’s input

• 9VDC THRU – Passes the power received at the 9VDC IN jack onto a MESA® Stowaway™ Input Buffer

CLEARLINK™ (RECEIVE) Converter

clearlink-receiver-wht-front006

The CLEARLINK (RECEIVE) CONVERTER/ISO is the ultimate solution for all instruments where signal must travel longer than 20 feet. A common application is receiving a buffered signal through long cabling from its companion product–the CLEARLINK SEND–and converting the balanced (XLR or TRS) signal back to a ¼” TS unbalanced signal appropriate for an amp input. It can also be used for any isolation job where grounds cannot be shared, such as a multi-amp switching setup. £259

• Made in Petaluma, California with the World’s Finest Materials

• Passive Design

• High Quality Jensen Audio Isolation Transformer

• Combination XLR/¼” Input accepts Balanced (XLR & TRS ¼”) or Unbalanced (TS ¼”) Inputs

• High-Performance Balanced to Unbalanced Signal Converter from drive-lines up to 330ft away

• ¼” Unbalanced Output is electrically isolated from the input, via the specially designed isolation transformer

• Phase Switch – Inverts (reverses) the phase of the output signal in relation to the input signal.

• Ground Switch – Safely lifts (isolates) the ground connection between the IN and OUT jacks, eliminating ground loop hum and noise.
