4 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 4 years' warranty and 60 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 4 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 60 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 4 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

The master level control can provide up to 20dB of boosted sound, while the true bypass circuit ensures you'll maintain optimum signal clarity when the pedal is disengaged. If you've always desired the classic high-gain Mesa Boogie tone, the Throttle Box gives you instant access to that sound in a compact and rugged pedal.

High Gain from Vintage to Modern

The Mesa Boogie Throttle Box is a high-gain pedal that can cover the complete distortion range from vintage to modern, letting you play all styles of rock and metal. It features a Lo/High gain switch which alters the pedal's distortion response, along with an internal EQ-Boost switch for an additional voice. The Throttle Box is designed to turn any amplifier into a high-gain monster, giving you instant access to the acclaimed distortion sound of Mesa Boogie.

Tonal Sculpting

The Throttle Box features a Mid-Cut control which provides a mid-scooped sound for a modern metal tone. An additional Tone control lets you balance the pedal's high frequencies, while the master Level control provides up to +20dB of boosted signal to push your amplifier into increased saturation and sustain.

True Bypass & Rugged Build Quality

The Throttle Box has a true bypass which means you'll maintain optimal signal clarity when the pedal is disengaged. It is designed and handcrafted in Petaluma, California, and features the renowned build quality and rugged construction standards that Mesa Boogie is known for.

Reviews

Guitarist Magazine gave the Throttle Box the Guitarist Choice award:

"If we could stop smiling long enough to put it down, we'd tell you that never has hard rock and metal been so utterly satisfying from such a small enclosure. Don't count it out for high-gain blues rock, or classic rock either for that matter: another winner!”

Read the full review on the Music Radar website.

Guitar World Magazine gave the Throttle Box the Gold Award:

"This is the pedal for every guitar player who has wished there was a way to step on a switch and turn their clean sound into something akin to Mesa’s mighty Rectifier. The mid-cut knob affects the soundscape in the same way as creating a V shape with Mesa’s five-slider EQ, and a center toggle drops the Throttle Box into low gear for cutting but clear overdrive and edgy blues styles."
