a guy on my local craigslist is offering me his Mesa F-50 112 he purchased in 2008 for my Marshall...just wondering if this would be a wise trade. I'm mainly looking for a Peavey XXX head, but this combo intrigues me. it has the advantage of being small and more manageable to carry around than a half stack...and its an american voiced amp (what ive been wanting)

just wondering if it has the versatility

hey may even throw in some cash

I'd do it. The F-50 is more valuable than the XXX head, and you can always sell it if you don't like it.

True...but when if I was taking a XXX head, I'd also be looking for the buyer to throw in $150-200 with the amp, so I wouldnt take a major hit

hmmm, so it sounds like the Mesa is the way to go.

but...i just saw on harmony central that a guy if offering me his XXX head + cash for my Marshall...hmmm, who to take

with the F-50 guy, i wouldnt have to ship my amp out..which would be kinda nice not to have to do

As much as I like the DSL, if you want a good American voiced amp, its a great trade for the F-50. I like that amp WAY more the the XXX

i mean, i dont really gig a lot, and if need be for a head...i can keep my cab and sell off the Mesa later for cash or a new head

i like the any mesa f series amp over any marshal dsl/tsl amp. Imo better amps all round. But thats a preference call and voicing call.
imo
f series is slightly better than xxx.

F-50 > XXX all the way.

I would do that trade without hesitation.

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

pretty much onboard with the rest of the people. mesa equipment are built like tanks. you really get what you pay for. i just got a mark IV and i love it so much
Jackson DXMG -> Vai Morley Wah -> Korg Black Tuner -> (Need a delay) -> Maxon OD808 -> BBE Sonic Maximizer -> ISP Noisegate -> Mesa Boogie Mark IV

so, any more input? i may be meeting this guy sometime this week to do the trade, but I can still back out if it's not such a hot deal
