Pre-owned in mint, as new condition. This amp was purchased as an investment, has barely been used

Supplied with the original slip cover, Owner's Manual and Serial Number/Check list card.

Signature Model, signed by Carlos Santana & Randall Smith.

World famous for its expressive vocal/violin-like tone and sustain, its sound is unmistakable yet unique and musical in the hands of each player to allow for co-authoring of your "Signature Tone"!

The Limited Edition King Snake is legendary in both sound and story because it is the direct descendant of the original Boogie that stood alone at that intersection so long ago. That amp was the transitional link between the low gain single channel amps of yesteryear and today’s current high gain, multi-channel footswitching amplifiers.

This tribute model is an exact replica of the amp Carlos Santana toured with in 1972/73.

Powerful Mid/Boost Control - The Midrange Tone Control doubles as both a standard Midrange Tone Control (from 1 to 5) AND a Variable Gain Boost Control (from 5 to 10). Its range from 1 to 5 operates like a standard Midrange Tone Control but once you go past 5 it becomes a variable Gain Booster providing precise, incremental increases to dial in added levels of sweet harmonic overdrive, from subtle to blistering. When set to 10 it duplicates the Gain Boost Switch on the rear panel of the original Mark I
