I mean other then the added 4th channel. Does one of them differ in tone? Tightness? Smoothness?

Enlighten me please

Im kinda getting old of my mesa Mark iii blue stripe long head with with 105 transformer(same one used in the mark ii C+ series), reverb, switchable wattage(60 or 100 watts) and on board graphic eq.

I was thinking the pitbull from VHT but they are exremely rare where i live.

Engl is expensive as hell. the thunder combo without reverb is 1500 before taxes new. and i havent seen a engl on my craigslist in over a year and a half. and besides, I still want that definition that mesa has with they're products.

What is your budget for anew amp?
What are your genres?
can you go used?
can you sell your unused gear to up your budget?
do you need a cab or just a head?
do you need a new guitar?

and the Roadster is Mesa's MOST Versatile and tightest amp EVER!

i play fusion, shred, death/progressive,melodic metal, jazz, blues, indie/progressive/hard/heavy rock, latin, country, classical and flamenco

I can sell my mark III for 1200 dollars.

I have a few other things i could sell to maybe get up to 1500 including the 1200 from the mark iii.

I need just a head.

No i got a hand made custom guitar with EVERYTHING i want.

You live in Canada, search Harmony-Central, most of those guys would be willing to ship something over to you.

The Road King is significantly more tight and more versatile

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

I think you are selling the MKIII way too much

and with you genres you need a Shit load of amps...

with a budget of 1500 you COULD get an Axe FX... if you are gigging just plug it in to the PA system like what Meshuggah does.

Long head Mark III's with all the features sell for 900-1000 in the US right?....convert that to CAD its about the same. Also consider the Mesa Mark Series are not sold in Canada. Maybe used but not new. I had to purchase it in the US for 1150USD used-dead mint.

Also to let you know, A single solo recto 50W head goes for 1400 CAD. so 1200 cad for a mint mesa mark iii long head is reasonable here in canada.
