Mesa. Said to be a very toneful clean amp in the world. And recs like that have brutal distortion. But depending on the genre, Marshalls are awesome as well.
#11
BOTH.

For me, id have Dual Rectifier and a Plexi or a JCM2000 on an A/B box.

They're really different sounding, so there's no competition between them.

Yeah, Mesas are more high gain, while Marshalls are more Crunch.

But, I still find that Mesa to be a better amp than that Marshall.

Not a fan of either, but if I had to choose, the Mesa, much better all-round amp (imo)

Depends what you want to do with it. but imo its the mesa i love mine
#17
Yeah... bias Mesa. I vouch for the balls to the wall sound on my Dual Rec. I don't however vouch for the cleans.... they're alright, but they could be better. Hence, the Road King Dual Rec. Beautiful amp..... period.

If you want a versatile amp that has the potential to be BRUTAL....MESA every time! The last amp I bought was the mesa triple recto. Ive played many marshalls, and I demo'd a couple of the new ones I hadnt tried yet(the new JVM was my fav of all the newer marshall). I actually demod a LOT of amps but thats another story for another day. Side by side demos on all these amps by the way. Either way......box stock NONE of of the others came close to doing what a box stock mesa does with no external effects to speak of!

Always try it before you buy it....but if you like the mesa sound, nothing else comes close to the "mesa sound" unless its a mesa. So I guess its safe to say.....if you like the mesa sound, then you will like the mesa better than anything else out there! The gain and delivery of the recto amps is pretty unique.
To hear what can be done with a pretty bare bones computer home studio, minimal cash and lots of time.....visit http://myspace.com/redlightcrisis I play the guitar on the tracks and take care of recording duties.

kind of depends on what your playing. i wouldnt want a mesa dual rect for a classic rock band.
#21
i didn't find any info on what you're gonna play with it... but if i had to choose one it'd be the mesa.

hey buddy have you tried a/b/y switch a mesa and marshall together?. i really want to do that..best of both worlds like the guy in tool.

Marshall Is voiced WAY better than mesa, but arent potent enough from the factory. If you hot rod the marshall, its the best amp period. Mesa has plenty of Gain and Thickness but have such a bad voicing. They dont really cut through the mix, mainly because of a low mid range frequency. Less than 200 Kh. Works for some. Your best choice is a hot rodded marshall.

if you're in the US, mesa. If in the UK, marshall. Because of their relative prices.

Though as rhcp says, they're totally different tones, and personal preference comes into it too.

Though bear in mind there are a lot more amp brands than marshall and mesa, many of which, in my opinion, blow both out of the water.
