The Mesa Gold Mine is a high-gain aficionado’s delight. This overdrive pedal delivers enough raunchy saturation to satisfy the staunchest Boogie fan, but with the perfect amount of Brit-flavored harmonic complexity. The Gold Mine isn’t a one-trick pony, however. Back off the Gain knob, and you’ll experience a subtle overdrive that’s guaranteed to inject sweetness into every note you play. At Maxwell's House of Music, we really dig the violin-like sustain that this guitar effect pedal yields with heavy gain settings. There’s plenty of sound-shaping onboard the Gold Mine, thanks to a 3-band EQ. Beyond that, there’s an internal Tight switch that (surprise) tightens up your low end for fast-tracking performance that’s ideal for technical rhythm playing and solo work.
