I finally got the chance to play a Mesa Boogie Mark V combo today. My local GC hasn't been able to stock them because of all the preorders, and frankly, an amp has never had a more positive impression on me. It was beautiful. Great metal and punk tones, with absolutely beautiful cleans. I start a new job soon, and I'll be able to buy it soon after. Does anyone else have any experience with them? Am I in for a speaker going out or knobs falling off or anything?
While I don't have any experience with the Mark V, I do know that Mesa/Boogie has a pretty solid record of quality. I seriously doubt that you will blow a speaker or have knobs fall off of the amp.
