Yeah it never goes away for us musicians... more amps and guitars please....
Keep checking in on Reverb. I got mine for $1100 mint last year.
Sheesh, were you guys all jocks at school?
HS wrestling in Iowa does that count? USMC then martial arts, I suppose I’m in good shape but I would rather use a dolly to haul heavier stuff then carry it.
I've owned a few Mesa's. I have a hardwood cabinet MK I RI with an EVM 12L that I can no longer lift. ;-) And a Studio .22+ that was my main amp for years until I suddenly fell out of love with it. Needs tubes? They are both on the block. I'm not sure what I will replace them with, but the Fillmore 25 and Cali Tweed are both contenders. I'll be out in California this Spring, so I hope to try them out.
My issue with the MK V 25 is that they use EL 84's and I think that's what turned me off on the .22+. I think an ideal Boogie for me would be something that had a clean channel like a Deluxe Reverb and a MK I sound in the lead channel that used 6V6's in the power section.
Have you tried the Mark five 25 or 35?
ok Mesa 6L6 amps I've played that deliver what you desire are Lonestar Classic, Express 5:50, Rectoverb, Roadster, Mark IV, Mark V, JP-2C and Triple Crown. These all have the Lonestar cleans and reverb which produced better Fender cleans and reverb than Fender imo
Mark V 25 and 35 have EL84s but are voiced for Fender clean and are equally as great as the Lonestar and Express imo.
The California Tweed as 6V6 tubes.
Fillmore has 6L6s.
Just a small addition; the Fillmore 50 is 6L6 powered but the Fillmore 25 is 6V6.
