I've been researching amps I would eventually like to own, and Mesa is of course near the top of the list. The thing is, from what I can tell from UG is that they have soooo many amps. I have never had the chance to play one but I was just curious as to how they all sound so different. The ones I know of are: single, double, triple rectos, F-50, Lonestar, Stilleto, Roadster, Mark I, II, III, IV, tremoverb, rectoverb and the express. I really just want to know why there are so many? Are there really that many different voicings an amp can have? If someone could give me the lowdown on each model or point me to a site that would, that would be much appreciated.

playing by yourself is like masturbating, sure it feels great, but it's nothing compared to the real deal.

Ibanez GIO (i put a Dimbucker in the bridge)
Crate GT65 (65 watts) to be upgraded soon, suggestions welcome (must be tubed)

Yeah I thought someone might suggest that, but I'm really looking for an in-depth, subljective review of each of these amps.

Oh yeah how could I forget the RoadKing :P

the best Mesa there is is the Mark IV in my opinion.
i've played most of them, except the tremoverb and the new express ones.

Single, Double, Triple Rectos - primarily metal amps, each with progressively more power and head room; double and triple have more features than single, including different rectifier options (the Rectoverb and Tremoverb are combo versions of these amps). The Roadster and Road King tend to be closer to these, but with better cleans and more tube/setting options.

Lonestar - Boogie's Texas blues amp. They also have the Blue Angel, another blues amp.

Stiletto - Boogie's Marshall clone

Mark series - Boogie's do-all amps, the flagship of the Boogie line; Fendery cleans with heavy distortion possible

Express, F series, Subway series - Boogie's low-end amps, each with good sound but less features than their higher end models

Uh...wow that was great
How would something like the F series compare to the Mark series as far as gain options?

More opinions still welcome
