Today I drove out to hell and back but it was f**king worth it! I picked up a Series 1 Mesa/Boogie Roadking 2x12 combo for $1600. Its in good condition with only a couple tears in the face and a couple tolex nicks. The amp sounds fantastic and has more options than any other amp I've ever played. 4 6L6 and 2 EL34 power tubes combine to form 2x 50W modes, 2x 100W modes and a 150W mode in progressive linkage. with 5 linkage settings, 4 channels and 3 modes per channel, a total of 60 different options are available without touching the reverb, either effects loop or solo boost. I haven't had much time to EQ the dirty channels since its night time and my neighbors have an itchy police finger but I'll get that done soon. The amp came with a really durable roadcase, (pictured below) but it adds about 20 lbs to an already 90 lb amp so its REALLY HEAVY. Enough talk, time for Amporn.

Seriously, HNAD, and we need clips soon, or else we rage! Also, how does that thing handle Blues and Classic Rock? I heard it can handle all styles, but in my short (very short, like, 2 minutes) with one I couldn't dial in a decent Blues tone.

Thanks peoples. I got it at some guys house who sold it since he can't lift it due to shoulder surgery. I feel sad for him, but the amp is great. I can hit classic rock tones well, blues needs some tweaking since the clean channel isn't the tightest but it sounds fantastic nonetheless. It still needs tweaking, but I'll get it all figured out when I can turn it up louder, but theres just so much to figure out. Not to mention, the back has more switches than the mother****ing cockpit of the space shuttle, lol.

The one thing I'd like would be a light to see what the footswitch buttons do when its dark, I might just stick an LED strip on there with a little 9V or something.

I got rid of mine cause it was giant and super heavy

Awesome sounding amps though none-the-less.

Wow, I'm already confused after looking at it for 10 seconds!

Thanks, I was wondering though, how hard have you been able to drive your amp? I can't get a good chunky tone out of it yet, I think something might be off with the tubes but I could just be awful at EQing. I've been only using AlNiCo pickups and singles for the time being until I can reassemble my Jackson and get some pickups for my other guitars.
