A shop my brother gets lessons at has Mesa amps (literally the only place anywhere near by). If I remember correctly, they had a Mark IV, a Lone Star, a Dual Rectifier, and I think a Stiletto of some sort.

Someday I'm gonna try them out (for the future). I was wondering what the other Mesa owner's have to say about these amps.


FYI, I play blues to hard rock, and like great cleans as well as I use them a good bit.

Mark IV, try it soon before it's gone. They're the best amp Mesa has (imo), and the only one I've tried that I'd ever buy.

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

i have a mark iv and its wonderful. great cleans to high gain and lots in between. if you don't play anything too heavy the stiletto and lonestar would be great for you. id just play everything there if i had the time but if you have a limited amount of time i'd try the mark iv, lonestar, stiletto, dual recto in that order.

It's something that I'll do on an off day (no real emergency). The hardest I'll play is stuff like GnR, Rush, and the like.

And my bro said they have the Expression there as well.

I bought an express 5:25 recently and am very happy with it.

It is no rectifier, but it is incredibly versatile, portable, and capable of getting great tones at low volumes on the 5-watt setting.

The Lone Star actually has a lot more range the most give it credit for. It can crunch pretty decently itself. The Mark IV is very expensive...the Lone Star is a nice amp if you don't need ultra high gain.

^ Yeah, for blues to hard rock, the Lone Star would be my choice.
