This ’86 Mesa/Boogie Mark III utilizes: (4) 5881, and (5) ECC83/12AX7 non-original tubes through the original 1 x 12″ JBL E120-8 speaker.
The original white tolex is in very excellent condition, exhibiting only minor scuffs. The original grill cloth is in almost perfect shape with only one minor flaw where the cloth has slightly stretched. The control panel is extremely crisp with little evidence of playing wear. This example works perfectly aside from the reverb, which when turned up, creates a loud 60 cycle hum.
