Mesa Boogie Dual Caliber D-5

Your DC-5 amplifier was designed to deliver maximum performance in a format based on simplicity.  It's easy-to-dial nature allows each of the two channels to deliver a wide range of sounds in both clean and overdrive styles.  The dual caliber uses two 6L6 power tubes to fuel its healthy 50 Watt power section.  We are pleased by its surprising headroom yet truly musical clip ability when pushed.  The DC-5's preamp was no afterthought.  As you may have deduced by the six 12AX7s tucked snugly away under the swing away tube clamp.

Rob Mehl

I was born in Oceanside in the 1950's and spent much of my youth bouncing back and forth between Encinitas and Waikiki, where I learned to surf, appreciate the great storytelling of Hawaiian beach boys and play guitar and ukulele. These influences, along with the amazing jazz lp's that were always on our record player at home, have blended together to become the beach-flavored, folk ballads that I write and sing. I've been able to do what I love to do for a lot of years, but I still work hard to bring my audiences the friendly, feel good show I refer to as "splashin' the passion!"

Deserie & Jim

Deserie’s style has been described by many as “heartfelt” and “intense”. Her voice, just like her probing blue eyes, draw you in and fill you with emotion. She makes you feel as if she tooka snapshot of a moment in your life and wrote a song about it.

Jim began writing songs in earnest in 1998 after many years of music industry experience supporting other artists. His lyrics – sometimes veiled, sometimes chillingly frank – are composed from the everyday subjects of life: the temptations of addiction, love and love lost, and the power of connection.
