Mesa Boogie CLEO™ – Transparent Boost / Overdrive
Mesa Boogie Cleo Transparent Boost / Overdrive
You already know MESA® Pedals are built by the very same artisans that create the Award Winning Mark Five™, the legendary Dual and Triple Rectifier® and the soulful new vintage-voiced offerings, Fillmore and California Tweed. Now here are three exciting new hand-built overdrive pedals spanning the entire range of gain and stylistic spectrum.
Cleo™ commands the lower end of the gain scale anchoring Blues, Roots, Indie Rock and even doubles as a hearty Boost, while it enhances, not covers up, the sound of your instrument. With sweet, open top end clarity and not too much saturation, it allows you to craft anything from a subtle boost up through urgent mid gain drive to harmonically-rich overdrive, all in the spirit of Tradition.
Find your sound among these three new catalysts, combine them to create a new Tone all your own or keep them all on deck to cover the entire Ball Park of sounds you may need regardless of the Gig. Whichever path you take to enhancing your Tone, rest assured you’ve invested in quality and service unparalleled with a Brand that’s been around for a half century and will be there for you should you ever need assistance.
Like each and every MESA product, these pedals are built using the same quality components and craftsmanship and are filled with the inspiring performance found in our custom amplifiers... all of which are hand-built in our only Shop in Petaluma California, USA.... the Home of Tone®!
This ¼” phono jack is the Instrument Input for the device. Connect the output of your guitar to this jack on the right side of the of the pedal with a shielded cable of good quality. The jack is a switching type jack and the circuit is turned on when a cable is inserted. When the circuit is activated by inserting a cable, the internal battery is being used to power it – so be sure to unplug the cable from the INPUT when it’s not in use.
This 1/4” phono jack is the OUTPUT for the device. Connect the OUTPUT to the Input of your amplifier – or the INPUT of the next device in line in your pedal board.
This is the master output level and it controls the amount of signal provided to the host amplifier. GAIN This control determines the amount of gain (overdrive) in the signal path.
This provides simple, global adjustment of the entire range of frequencies with one control.
