Mesa Boogie Throttle Box EQ Overdrive Pedal
The Mesa Boogie THROTTLE BOX EQGäó combines the awesome power of the acclaimed Throttle box with the enhanced shaping power of Mesa's popular Five Band Graphic EQ plus adds footswitchable HI/LO gain Modes and easy Top Panel access to the previously internal BOOST feature giving ultimate on-stage versatility.
The THROTTLE BOXGäó drive has been a worldwide success and with this Mesa we saw potential for a more powerful version including their classic Five-Band Graphic. The THROTTLE BOX was already a flexible pedal but now it can go anywhere you want to take it. In the middle gain range it's a tight, stinging overdrive that, with the addition of the LO/HI GAIN modes, can cover everything from Blues to Metal and do so with an attitude and percussive nature. Pushing the gain a little more and setting things permanently into the HI mode unleashes a hi-gain hot-rod that's full of searing harmonics. Then scoop out the mids with the EQ for ultimate modern rock and metal tones and unleash Mayhem.
The internally selectable BOOST switch hidden under the Bottom Plate on the original THROTTLE BOX appears on this EQ version as an easily accessible Top Panel BOOST switch for extra girth and a bit of gain enhancement. We're confident this pedal will exceed your expectations and provide an inspiring tool for expression.
