NAMM 2015 – Mission Engineering Is for the Amp Modeling Amp User Who Misses Their Head

Sometimes you just need a head, or at least maybe you want one. Sure, you could buy a rack, and a power amp, and a power conditioner, all to have a plug-and-play setup for your Axe-FX or Kemper Profiling amp. That’s perfectly functional. But there’s just something more elegant, more civilized, about Mission Engineering’s approach. Well unless you do a lot of touring, in which case you’ll likely want some lids.

Mission Engineering gave us the tour of their NAMM booth in which the company’s Gemini enclosures were, um, enclosed. But it’s not all heads all the time at Mission control. You may also be aware of their pedals, a few of which were featured by our partners in crime at Axe Hacks. Well now there’s a new addition: the Delta III distortion/boost/preamp.
