Transatlantic TA-15 Front Panel

Transatlantic TA-15 Rear Panel

While we may be the last to show at the lunchbox amp party, there is good reason for our stylishly late appearance…we saw another chance to redefine the Brit-inspired mini amp genre. The TA-15 packs all the footswitchable performance, including our patented MULTI-WATT™ Channel Assignable Power found in our high-end full-size models, and offers the most classic British and American sounds in a beautiful 12 3/8”W x 6 3/4”D x 5 7/8”H package weighing in at only 12 pounds!

The Transatlantic TA-15 may be the most portable all-tube gig companion ever. The TA-15 features our Duo-Class™ (Patent 7,173,488) and Dyna-Watt™ (Patent 4,713,624) technologies providing three power and operating class options that are channel assignable via independent 5/15/25 Watt Power Switches: Choose 1 power tube operating in pure Class A Single-Ended, producing 5 Watts - 2 tubes operating in pure Class A Push-Pull, producing 15 Watts or 2 tubes operating in Mesa’s Exclusive Dyna-Watt™ Power that maximizes the power and punch of time-honored Class A/B power / 2xEL-84 & 4x12AX7.

The Channel Modes start off with lower gain NORMAL and higher gain classic versions of the iconic TOP BOOST sound in Channel 1, which includes an ingenious Pull MASTER on the CUT control that can be Hard Bypassed for purists. Channel 2 houses three Modes; a gorgeous TWEED™ clean, a British HIGH GAIN in HI 1 and a classic Boogie® Lead in HI 2.

  • "With the TransAtlantic, Mesa set a lofty goal—make a tiny, lightweight, sonically excellent all-tube amp that’s capable of many popular voicings. And they succeeded. The TransAtlantic is as versatile as most other amp makers’ full-sized heads.”
