Actually they´re 1199.Ice said:The 20/20 is ok but doesn't touch the 2:90, and nothing does. The 2/100 doesn't really even touch it. The 2:90 is specifically designed for guitar and has 3 modes as well as the simul class technology. it's running tubes in A/B and A class so you get this extremely warm sound with attack. You can get the 2:90's used for cheap on ebay and if you find them around @ shops. I got mine for only 550. and they are 1299 new. A Pod Pro is 699 new and dropped to 599 and you can get them for 2-300 something used depending on condition. I got a mint one for 360.
All the GC´s sell it for 1199, so do Rudy´s and the LA outlet.Ice said:1199-1299 depending on where you go. There' no "2003 model" either all the 2:90's are the same with the exception some came with different tubes, but you can pick which ones you get when you order it. Don't get the chinese 420's as they are extremely unreliable and will blow out your amp. Any that I've seen in stores new have the 430's in them now so you shouldn't worry about that unless you go used check them out and have a new set ready. If you do blow it out it's cheap to fix, the resistors are only 2-3 bucks and there's only 4 in the whole thing, 1 per each set of power tubes.
The 2:100 will not give you the same sound as the 2:90 because it's only class A/B and not simul class. The 2:100 is meant to give you the tone of the power section from a rectifier head.
The didn´t update their site.Ice said:Looks like the only difference is the lights on the front of it. Nothing else is different on the mesa page. it's red instead of blue and it looks like the modes aren't all red, but I can't remember if they are all red on the originals.
What, and the rest of the Mesa poweramps are designed for keys?Ice said:The 2:90 is specifically designed for guitar...
The back is opened, and they´ve changed the jacksIce said:I would be worried about bad ventilation if that's the case. It looks pretty cool though, I still love having th eblue light, but that's as easy as changing the bulb/glass piece.
