just got outbidded on a Mesa Rect-O-Verb combo - I was just wondering before I stick a bid in higher, and get into the REAL money - will this amp suit me?

I play classic - hard rock and some metal - think the Beatles, Eddie, ACDC, Led Zep, Metallica and some other stuff all mixed together. Most of them use UK voiced amps - sure I could put EL34s in the Mesa, but will it suit me?

Dude, you could have just posted an update on your other thread, there was no need to create another one.
Wait.

You'd be much better off getting a JCM900 or the Bugera clone of it (Bugera 1990).

The Mesa boogie is a decent amp but it's obvious from your musical choices that a Marshall amp is going to suit you much better.

^I would suggest the 800 over the 900, simply because the 800 will do all the classic stuff very well but still be able to be boosted into metal territory.

Agreed, but the 800 doesn't have a clone that you can pickup for $450.

Seriously that Bugera 1990 sounds incredible.....

I've been a tube snob and I own some high priced gear and I'm not embarrassed in the least to say that that cheap amp sounds GREAT.

The Peavey Windsor can be picked up cheaper than $450, and is very reminiscent of the 800. And the 900 (or 1990) won't cover all of those genres.

The Windsor is a pile of crap compared to the 1990.

Anyway, I'd recommend the Bugera 1960, a good 2x12, and a nice overdrive pedal.

The view on Bugera's seems to have changed around here.

I don't claim to speak for the masses, my friend.


Then don't make crass generalizations such as "The Peavey Windsor is a pile of crap".

Different strokes for different folks I guess.
