    I've heard most of those amps but I have no need for them as I've got that clean territory covered with my Fender and Vox amps. No knock on Mesa. God bless Randall - he created some really nice amps over the past 40 years. I've owned a few and certainly recorded my share of them in all categories. My favorite being the original MK I & MK II. I still use my Mesa V-Twin tube preamp that I bought back in 94. I plug it into a Fender amp and there it is that classic Boogie violin type over drive that made Mesa famous.

    This video interview of the main players posted today answers a lot of Q's.
    Let's hope it pans out this way in reality :D

    Hopefully they just make Fender and Vox knockoffs, the heavier the better.

    Oh man. August and September SUCKED here between covid and the fires. Literally stuck in the house anxious (with ant invasions) for weeks waiting for frogs or something else to strike.

    We're scheduled for the 17 year cicadas later this year.
    You won't have fire worries this tear---just floods and mudslides.

    Go to Toronto Island. Take a hockey stick. It's for your own protection.

    Bluffers Park is the same. Or any large Scarboro parking lot in the spring when they're nesting. :)

    Luckily I live close enough to town that fires have not been particularly close to us and we don't have a flood issue. just the fact that you can't go outside and you can't go anywhere inside except home breathing recycled air due to covid made us stir crazy. I don't count myself as an outdoorsy person but I do love fresh air.

    @radd , you guys ok or do you have to evacuate due to slides?

    Thanks for asking.

    We are a block or two from the University and just on the edge of forest and not in the possible mud slide areas. Those areas start a few miles up into the mountains from us.

    When we evacuated due to fires, we were on the very edge of the evacuation zones and the fires did not get to us.

    I hope everybody stays safe this time.
