    Hey, I found one of these locally for what seems like a really good deal. But I decided to look around to see what they go for and have so far not been able to find any. Do you guys know about the average price for one of these. Aside from the price, have any of you played one? What do you...

    Alright folks. It was between either Engl and Mesa, and I've decided on Mesa because of the lead tone (I'm a lead player). I don't think anything can beat a Boogie for lead tone =) Now, the problem is that there are so many options that I have no friggin' clue as to what to get. My options are...

    Hey guys, I have an older 2-channel Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier head in great condition, except for a tear on the vinyl on one of the corners. I'm thinking about possibly selling it, but I'm not really sure what the older 2-chan versions are worth. From experience with playing a newer...

    Hi, I am interested in both of these amps. And i know they both sound great but i want to know the differences and similarities about them. I am very interested in the Mark IV. My moms friend has a 1x12 combo and i might be able to get him to sell it to me. Are there distortion channels...

    I might get a tube amp soon and am trying to narrow down my choices. I'm considering the Carvin Legacy and V3, the Peavey 6505, the Peavey JSX, and the Peavey Triple XXX. I don't want an amp that's too "nasaly sounding" or has too much gain (i don't play metal), which is why I the peaveys are...

    Yep, I hear Marshall will be launching a new line of "Vintage/Modern" amps. I also have been told Oct 26th is the launch date, although that is not confirmed. I'm a huge Marshall fan and look forward to checking it out! -jemaholic
  9. Pickups & wiring
    Not looking for a metal sound, looking for a low-to-mid output pickup for hard rock (Foo Fighters, etc). Will the PAF Pro fit that bill, or something else?

    my friend came over last night and we jammed a bit. He had a Marshall Mg15DFX (15 watts) and i had my 80-100watt Peavey Banditt. The mashall butt-raped the peavey. Is this normal or is there something wrong with the peavey? Im thinking of selling it and buying a Marshall Mg50. should i do that...

    Okay guys, I have a dual Rectifier, (early one, 2 channel version) and I'm running it through a mesa recitifier 2 x 12. The amp has so many switches on the back that it makes me a little weary. I have 6L6's and that' the tube selection I have on. What the hell is a Loop Selector. I have mine on...

    I'm in the process of trying out an older 2-channel Triple Rectifier. I've had it a couple days and I really like it so far. My current amp is a Marshall DSL50, and I really like the harmonics and sustain of that amp, but I REALLY like the deeper low end I can get out of the Mesa, too. So I...

    Anybody else feels like this? From what I tried in regards to current mass produciton amps (not including small production amp brands like Bogner), I must say that I am dissatisfied with quite a few models of amps that I had just expected more out of. More than anything, I am dissapointed with...
