A MAGNUM OPUS OF TONE
The MARK VII™ is the “Magnum Opus” of Randall Smith’s 50+ year career in visionary amp design. This model takes that knowledge, history, innovation, and performance and distills it into the simplest, most versatile, and smallest 90-watt Mark Series amplifier ever.
The 3 Channel, 9 Mode Preamp, coupled with our legendary Simul-Class™ Power section that offers three distinct characters across its three wattage ranges, creates a new Mark icon in terms of adaptability, soulful tube Tone, and magic feel that will serve any discerning player well.
The long-awaited “Simul Seven” leapfrogs its predecessor, the Mark Five, and the secret Mark Six prototype to arrive at the most power-packed Boogie Mark model ever in terms of Tone, flexibility, compact design, and interfacing. This do-it-all Tone machine delivers legendary Mark performance and adds two new sounds; the throwback yet infamous Mark IIB and a new modern high-gain Mode full of character and attitude aptly named Mark VII.
Joined by iconic features that put Boogies at the top of the dream list, such as on-board Graphic EQ, lush Reverb, a seamless Effects Loop, and innovative Power switching, the Mark VII showcases our CabClone IR DI Direct Interface. With identical features and great sounding IRs from our standalone CabClone IR, this built-in version allows individual assignment of 8 Rectifier® and Boogie Cabinets per Channel for unmatched tunability of Direct sounds.
The Mark VII is the next Chapter in the Boogie Book of Tone and offers discerning players analog, all-tube sound, Soul, and feel in a smaller, more compact, yet more comprehensive package. With a focus on perfecting icons, bringing back beloved classics, and introducing new realms of modern high gain, all while improving the interface and the performance across all mediums, the Mark VII offers inspiration and freedom across all musical styles. This extraordinary amplifier is available in 1x12 Combo, Head, and Rackmount Head formats.
