Mesa Mark IV combo vs. Engl Screamer 50 combo

Hey guys,

I am looking for a new amp. I will be using it at band practice as well as on stage. I need the total package - shimmering cleans, smooth leads and plenty of tight gain I found a used Mesa Mark IV combo for $1400 CDN. Would you say this is a good price? If not, what do you guys think about the Engl Screamer 50 combo? I have heard clips and it sounds amazing. Which will fulfill my needs? Which is more bang for the buck? Thanks!

MKIV. The screamer is a nice little amp, but it's not a fair comparison, you're comparing a high-end amp with low-end amp.

if you've got the money for the MKIV, go for it.
