OK I've just seen an ad for a used Mesa Boogie Reverb Rocket for 500 euros, which is $640 or 340 pounds sterling

Basically I want to know is if its a good amp for hard rock and a little bit of metal, and if its a good price for a used one (but I will be able to try it as it is near me)

Thanks

It'll be a good rock amp. All Boogies have great distortion. For metal, you may want to use an overdrive or boost, depending. That's a pretty good price, too, if it's good condition.

actually i have a freind who uses this same amp in his metal band with a les paul classic and it sounds great for his metal lead work, great amp, awesome for rock too, just like any other boogie tho it takes forever to setup

Its $930 USD, but everything in Europe is way more expensive (that is stuff made in the US)

But because its used I could probably get a bit off it

So is it worth that price?

Thanks

Oh yeah and could you also tell me if I could get a nice kinda satriani or santana tone aswell as doing metal because with this Rocket 44 I might not be able to try it first...

it will cover it, its basically the same amp, great tones and really loud like all mesa, but again dont get discouraged if you cant find the tones right away mesas are so percise that you have to mess around forever to get a great tone

^ Thanks, so how about the price, the guy doesn't look like he's gonna take much off it, so its around $900 which seems a bit much but then everything is expensive here

that does seem like a bit much for a 1x12, i cant remember what they were new, the series is discontinued now, i know we give $600 on trade in so we most likely sell them for 750-900

Well if your selling them for that price in the US, it doesnt seem that bad, since Mesa's are VERY expensive over here

The guy said he bought it new about 5 years ago for about 1100 euros ($1450)

and now he's selling it for 730 euros, so it seems a little much but nothing extraordinary? Any opinions?

right, well I would be expecting to pay more for it over here, but maybe its a bit much even for Ireland, still, I really want this amp, assuming it is in good shape...


***Oh yeah, and why is it that you give more for the Reverb Rocket which is a 20W amp and the Rocket 44 is a 44W combo, and if they are basically the same amp, shouldn't the Rocket 44 be more expensive?

Thanks for all your help
