I have the opportunity to pick up a 1994 Mesa DC 5 head tomorrow. I've read some reviews, and was wondering if anyone has any personal experience with the amp?
that's actually the same year as mine! they're great amps, especially rock and metal's your taste. The cleans are really nice (with coil taps i've been able to fake Pink Floyd clean sounds), and the dirty channel can do classic rock, to punk, to hair metal, to hardcore to technical death metal. it's really a kick ass amp, especially if you own a bunch of guitars with different pickups or woods; each guitar adds its unique flavor to the amp. how much is it btw? if it's between 5 - 8 hundred, that's really good
I'd be using it with an Avatar G112 with either an Eminence Swamp Thang or Texas Heat. That's what I get for living in a small apartment....
