Transparent Solo Boosts and Mild Harmonic Enhancement

A well-built transparent overdrive like the Mesa Cleo opens up miles of sonic explorative possibilities. From tightening up a high-gain stack to getting a little more juice out of a low-wattage combo, the Mesa Cleo will always find a spot on your pedalboard or in your pedal drawer. The Cleo is distinctly low character in its, well, character, with simple Level, Tone, and Gain controls to refine how much harmonics, hair, sparkle, and grit you slather on. It's your sound, only enhanced. But that's not to say the Cleo is limited in its applications. You've got +20dB of output gain and a far-reaching Tone knob to colorize chords, texturize amp tones, and give your solos the spotlight. And thanks to its US-built premium componentry and tone-saving true bypass switching, the Mesa Engineering Cleo will never put a damper on your hard-won tone.

The same skilled hands that have built an empire of iconic amps — from the multifaceted Mark V to the inimitable Triple Rec — are the very hands that build every Mesa Cleo pedal that leaves the line. The Mesa Cleo transparent overdrive is built here in the USA, in sunny California, using the finest sonic circuits ever discovered. The Cleo boasts an extremely musical and intuitive control set that's quick to dial in and sacrifices nothing in terms of tone. True bypass switching preserves your dry signal when switched out of your chain. And a low-draw topology that accepts a wall supply or a 9-volt battery means the Mesa Cleo pedal is yours to incorporate into any rig you own. Looking for enhanced Mesa expression from a floor-friendly pedal format? Reach for the Mesa Cleo transparent boost/overdrive pedal from Sweetwater.
