A Hot Rod British Tribute by the Original Boutique Company Dan Van Riezen, Mesa Designer for 25 Years ELECTRA DYNE™
The Electra Dyne™ Deeply rooted in the Best of the Brit lineage, the Electra Dyne takes modified Eng- lish gain sounds and sorts them into LO and HIGH regions. These two choices are combined with a retro- minded, American-voiced clean “channel” and linked to one mini-toggle that gives you three of the most classic sounds in Rock ‘n Roll.
