Boogie puts out a good product, but it's a pain when you have to put money down to even get an amp in the store to try out (the closest store that had a roadster on the floor to try was 5 states away).

That sucks alot. Ive played the roadster combo but i really want the head and a cab. The thing is im trying to get rid of my Peavey xxx combo, but i cant sell it till i get a new amp and i might need the money.

Each Channelhas a controll for reverb, Via back panel, and a selectible wattage controll.

Recto with reverb and a wattage controll, and 4 channels, otherwise , they are identicle

Dayum. Sounds pretty kick ass. I need some good reverb for my Triple. Ill probably get the Digiverb. People seem to be happy with it.

Yeah, I've got the roadster (2X12" combo) and it kicks so much ass. I've played the dual recto and it sounds identicle to the roadster at channel 4 w/ the modern setting. It sounds like a 4X12, it's just so huge. When I play in my basement, people upstairs complain that the room shakes.

I've had this amp for 2 months now and i've only scratched the surface of what the Roadster can do. There is almost too much choice!

With the power on spongy, i can nail that "brown" sound. I just love this amp.

Eventually i'll do some recording and maybe post some stuff on here.

How do you like your SE custom? ^^ I was wondering because I was going to get one but got an SG instead...so I keep thinking I may have made the wrong choice...even though SG's are my fav guitar

^ Ive been wondering about PRS's SE line for a long time. How are the pickups in them? And how are they tone/feel wise compared to their bigger brothers?

Ok, I LOVE my PRS SE custom.

I've played the custom 22, 24, singlecut trem, standard 22, 24, se: singlecut, soapbar, standard, and a few others I can't remember.

It obviously isn't as good as the non-korean made guitars, but it still is incredible for the price. The neck is really comfy. The tuners are pretty damn nice, but they aren't locking...but you can always replace those. The action is very smooth. I actually really like the pickups on this guitar. They handle distorted and clean tones very well. One complaint I do have is that pinch harmonics don't cut through the mix as well as other pickups. I really like the trem. It's no floyd rose but it does small pitch bends very well. Doesn't go out of tune unless you do massive dive bombs.

I have no idea how PRS made their guitars so nice for how low the price is. This guitar sounds, plays and looks like a guitar that is 2ce the price. Trust me, it's worth a look. But if you have the money for an american made PRS, get it. They are just insanely good.

i posted this in the classifieds but i figured here would be perfect.. im looking to sell my rectifier standard cab (i believe this is refered to as the oversize). its just over 3 months old and it never left my room. i bought it new at guitar center and not off the floor, they went back and gave me a new one in the box.. i have everything it came with and the stickers are still on the thing.. i do not want to ship it but i live in Secaucus NJ so if anyone near there is interested im looking for $700 since they go for $900 at guitar center and this one is in better shape than those.. i wont be back on this thread so if you are interested PM me

I hope this thread goes somewhere. I love Mesa's!
Has anyone played a Roadking? I only got to play one for 30 minutes....the options are just so overwhelming! I've had my roadster for like 2 months and I still feel that I haven't checked out all the options!

Are you my identical brother that does everything right beside me?
I've barely even touched what my Roadster head is capable of, and I to only got to orgasm for 30 minutes on the throne of a RoadKing.

Might be!
but, I really liked the roadking...but it's just the cost that overwhelms me! I went for the roadster because it was plenty versitle but didn't cost as much as a roadking.

I hear that. I just wouldn't be able to comprehend all those switches and knobs; the Roadster gives me an appetizer to the RoadKing, but without spending millions on aspirin.

One thing that I wish they included was a way to assign certain channels to different speakers....I would love an open-back cab and diff. speakers for my cleans

That's an option on the RoadKing if I remember correctly. You could choose whether or not you wanted to use the closed-back half or the open-back half.

So whats with Mesa 2X12's that are sooo insanely nice that guys are using them instead of a 4X2 cab? like using 2 4X12's and 2 2X12's as 2 3/4 stacks?

that's the whole point of the progressive linkage, so you have completely seperate poweramps that can run different speakers.
