Mesa. I own both and the Mesa sounds much better than the 5150 (imo). The F-50 also has an awesome clean channel unlike the 5150 and the gain can still get heavy, maybe not as heavy as the 5150, but only slightly less, you won't notice it unless you have both side by side.

I really wasn't too much of a fan of the Randall when I played it, maybe it was just something wrong with the amp, but it didn't sound too great at all to me.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

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