From that list, the Mesa Mark V, but at $6000AUD i'm glad it's you paying and not me.

Have you heard of the MI Audio Revelation? It's Aussie made, sells for around $3000AUD and apparently sounds awesome. Worth a look at least, you would have three grand left over for a sweet new guitar.

Rock on!

Can't get more value for money than a Carvin Legacy.
Still amazes me that the Legacy is that cheap...

From an Australian point of view, the mesa amps will hold their value the best down the track. So resale in the future will be better... Plus its a Mesa so you cant really go wrong

Price being no object, I'd go for the Mark V but on my budget, I'd be looking more at the Carvin Legacy.

Re: Which Amp would you get of these?

The MKV is fantastic and very versatile and would offer me all the tones I'm going for in one package, in particular the lead tones are right up my street I couldn't justify that kind of outlay whilst I'm not gigging or I'd have one by now.

However they're some VERY different beasts up there in the poll so if you're not just fishing for fun, you'll need to say a bit more about what you're looking for from your new amp

They are so different, in both what they cost and deliver. I'll take the Fuchs Overdrive Supreme 100 thanks

Re: Which Amp would you get of these?

Given i wouldn't really want a combo as they always seem like too much of a compramise, if it was a head and cab it'd be the mk v. Depending on what you play i'd go with the 3120. That said, i'd really like a soldano slo or an engl powerball or an h&k triamp!
