Yep. It was my birthday and I was wanking in my room and all of a sudden my whole family came jumping in yelling "SURPRISE!!" I guess they were the ones who ended up being surprised.

Personally i'd say good luck finding a good mesa amp for $1000 or less...even used...unless someone is absolutely desparate for any amount of money they can get. But thats just for mainly the dual and triple rec heads only...smaller combo amps or whatever might be cheaper.

I picked up a used Mesa DC-5 combo amp for $800 Canadian. It was a freakin' steal! The amp is awesome. Keep a look out for deals in the classifieds and whatever other "buy and sell" type things you have in Philly.

I saw a used Mesa combo for $1000 at GC a few days ago. Looked a little beat up though, and I don't quite have $1000. But yeah, it's possible to find (relatively) cheap ones if you look hard enough.

why mesa? not all mesas are the same, you know. this is dumb. why do people decide they want a certain brand of amp without thinking about what type of sound they actually want?

and why do I not feel like starting my senteces with capital letters tonight?

im a big metallica fan myself. i find my marshall to sound better than anything mesa has to offer this side of a mark2c+ rewired as a preamp.

i dont find mesas to have much crunch as much as a 'thump'. mesa distortion sounds rather like a big wave of bass, with no undertone or bite.

metallica songs have lots of bite, even though their signature sound is scooped.

id say look elsewhere than a mesa. its all just hype and chrome, no real balls ( i know ill get flamed for this )
god created metal. please do not associate satan with metal. Metal is good. pop music and techno are sinful and dirty vices and should be forbidden. Satan gave us this for us all to cringe at and get headaches!

To an extent he's right. Mesa's have a huge reputation, but i dont necessarily think that they are amazing amps. The technology, versatility and build quality is top. Sure, they are cool, and everyone would love to own one, but for the price you pay, and the quality of the sound you get, they aint all that.

Dual rec costs about 2 grand new in the UK, for that you can get a soldano or an engl savage, or even a framus if you're lucky.
