Well im stuck again.

Should I save some cash and get Fender cleans and buy a good distortion pedal (probbably the Wampler super plextortion) with the Deville 212?

Or should I break the bank and go for the Mesa Express?

Thanks guys!

i would get the fender but it depends on your preferences, you won't get cleans as good as fenders but can be decent, the same way you can't play metal with a fender, it's not designed for that purpose
#6
well i was gonna buy the Wampler super plextortion if I got the Fender. It makes almost any tube amp sound like a plexi or cranked jcm800. You can go on youtube and wath some vids on it and pm gearmandude if you have any questions.

Why don't you go and play one.
The mesa clean is very nice.
Beats my blues jr.
Oh, it can do some overdrive too.
#9

mesa. the sell point of the fender cleans is a little overrated. and this is coming from a bluesman. plus, though not obscure by any means, you can get a more original sound out of the mesa. hope this helps.
#11
actually it does help thanks! Any comment helps as long as its related to the subject. But do the mesa express is worth the extra money? And which express should i get, the 110 the 112 or the 212? Thanks

If your going to spend $1200 on an Express, just get a Mark IV and be done with.

I'm going to have to say the Mesa man. The other guitarist that I play with uses one and he gets anywhere from a great clean sound to hardcore heavy.

The Mark IV is discontinued. It's a great versatile amp though. The Mark V, its successor, is even better. But it is a tweaker's amp. And $2000 just for the head.

Dude the MK IV and V are way out of my price range. The Express 212 is extremely pushing it

You'll have to buy Mark IV used, usually anywhere from $800 - $1200. As you can see, I didn't recommend a Mark V because it's out of your price range.

well turns out like 1100 is like the price range. Prob gonna go with the hot rod deville and buy a good pedal 2 put in front of it. Unless, is the 112 Express any good? or the 110 express?
