The Meshuggah Signature amplifier is back in very limited quantities exclusive through our awesome distributor, Musifacts.
Featuring an all blacked out format with a different recipe of NOS parts!
In late 2016 (just before The Violent Sleep of Reason Tour), Mike was asked to create an amplifier for Fredrik & Mårten that would not only cover the entire arsenal of amps used on the new record, but could also nail the older classic tones. As a result of extensive research and development, we are pleased to present this machine of audio torture, the MESHUGGAH Signature 50W amplifier!
The Meshuggah Amplifier is all point-to-point handwired, all tube 50W, single-channel fire breather. This very limited amplifier features an array of NOS parts that lend to its’ unique tonal characteristics. Brutal, tight, and aggressive, whilst still retaining feel and clarity, the Meshuggah has been designed with extreme metal musicians in mind. Twin gain controls and pull gain MVC allows for the perfect dialing-in of sickening amounts of gain. Classic British vintage styling, NOS Dialight Indicator, simple and intuitive front panel layout with small box head cabinet format that ties it all in for a sleek blacked out look. Plug in and re-animate your inspiration and playing!

“The best of the best! Mr. Mike Fortin! Thank you for building us these exquisite machines of torture! There are just no words to describe how pleased we are with them! It's like having the whole arsenal of amps used on 'The Violent Sleep of Reason record built into one head - and we have three!!! ;-)
“The Fortin amps are single-channel, straight-up rhythm machines designed specifically for our sound. They sound fucking terrific. It’s been a long time since it’s been so much fun to just riff onstage, and these amps brought that back for me in a way I don’t think I’ve ever experienced—to the point that sometimes I just get lost in the riff and how powerful it feels.”
-Fredrik Thordendal (Meshuggah)
