Boogie Mark III Gets New Headshell!

Ever since I bought my Boogie Mark III back in '92 I wished I had gotten the head version and a 4x12 cabinet. Back then full and/or half stacks were essential if you wanted to be cool. That trend has changed to some degree these days, but for me having a separate cabinet improves the sound.

I decided to call up Mesa Boogie and see about ordering a headshell for my little Mark III since I was no longer using it as a combo, but rather as a half stack with my Bogner 2x12 cabinet. I discovered that they still build headshells to order, so I put in my request. It took while for them to build it (I think I ordered it 4 months ago) but it was worth the wait. This amp is completely transformed! It looks so modern and new inside the headshell. Plus it is going to be much easier to lug around now without the extra weight of the larger cabinet and 12 inch speaker!

I am quite happy with the look of the amp as a head and I look forward to gigging with my little Boogie I bought so long ago.
