1989 Boss MA-1 Mascot Amplifier Japan Vintage Preamp Amplifier
The Boss MA-1 Mascot Amplifier was one of two Pocket Series products (the other being the FA-1 FET Amplifier) released in the mid 1980's. The Pocket Series were designed to clip onto the users belt using the plastic mount hook on the back. The MA-1 had a built in 2 inch speaker, allowing for 0.5 W of portable and mobile amplification.
The MA-1 can also be used as a preamp/line booster through the headphone jack. Running the headphone jack into a small tube amp can make it feel like you're adding 50w to your rig and can also add a nice thick overdrive to the tone. The MA-1 is one of the more unique sounding boxes from Boss, but has plenty of great uses.
Good shape. Works perfectly with only minor cosmetic wear. Includes original battery door and clip, has a brand new battery snap installed.
