Got an inside tip about this from an industry buddy..... New from Mesa Boogie, the six channel Ballbuster. Three 1/4" inputs - low, normal, and active. Channels are "warm clean", "brite clean", "dirty clean", "crunch", "lead", and "molten". Each channel has it's own dedicated gain, bass, mid-bass, middle, mid-high, treble, presence, master, and sweepable 3 band parametric eq section. Each channel also has mini toggle switches for normal/boost, warm/brite, and rhythm/lead settings. Each channel also has it's own individual standby switch. Speaker outputs are provided for 2ohm, 4ohm, 8 ohm, 16 ohm, and 24 ohm loads. Both a parallel and series effects loops is included with sensitivity and output controls for each. The 6 output tube sockets will accept any combination of octal based output tubes each with its own bias adjustment points on the rear panel. A built in variac is also included that allows you to set the input voltage anywhere between 98 and 120 VAC. Pentode, triode, 1/2, and 1/4 power switches are also housed on the rear panel. Depending on the input voltage, power settings, bias adjustment, and output tubes used the amps power rating can be anywhere between 6 and 120 watts. A footswitch is included that allows remote selection of channel as well as allowing the user to place any or all channels in standby mode. Available now only as a long head but plans are underway to offer it in 1x12, 2x12, 4x10, and 6x8 combo formats. Price for the head only is $2,499 MSRP. Will be unveiled at Winter NAMM.

What in the sweet ****? That's so overkill lol, it's like they just put every amp they've ever made into a massive head. Thing must weigh a ton. Also, no reverb?
You must be kidding. The Ballbuster?

Figured, but couldn't be sure lol, I wouldn't put it past MESA. The Roadster is only 2 channels shy of the fabled Ballbuster.
"Mid-bass" and "mid-high" had my eyebrows scrunching.
