    For sale is a totally ripping Mesa F30. It has a 1x12 Celestion speaker, everything all original. I no longer have the tags, thinking that I'd be keeping it forever. I recently purchased a pre-owned Mesa Mark IV, so I no longer have the need for the F30. Great sounding amp, nice glassy, crisp...

    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...

    Well, after much convincing of the wife to let me order a Tourmaster, I come to find out that MF (Mother F*ckers?) wont ship amps to my neck of the woods.

Bob was extremely helpful and wrote me a loooong email about different tube configurations depending on style and sound desired. I went with the following suggestion from Bob: 4x JJ 6L6GC (Matched...

    Hey everybody. Ive been wondering about tubes. My Mesa F-100 has 4 Mesa Brand 6L6 GC tubes. And i guess 4 12AX7's behind the 6L6's. I have no idea what these do in terms of sound. I dont know which ones help with distortion and which ones are for the clean sound. I also want to know if it's...

    I've been reading forums lately and have seen various repetitions of the question "I have so-in-so's pup in my Ibanez and I can't get it to work with my rig" or "I have so-in-so's pup in my Jackson and it sucks" and I can't help but wonder... IMO, people are really caught up in who uses what...
