Maybe he has it cranked? But I'm sick of my roadster, I usually play it at low volumes in my house and it sounds all fizzy.

It's probably cranked, mesas are sort of notorious for need to be cranked to sound their fullest. Playing a roadster in a house is a might bit of overkill. Unless you need the power for gigging you might want to think about another amp.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not

All my friends that I used to jam with are graduating soon and not wanting to jam, I was thinking today of selling it and buying a avatar 1x12 cab and an orange tiny terror.

ok, badly worded.

All valve amps, without an attenuator, played at very low volumes, with high gain levels, will sound fizzy.

Bring that ENGL round to my house and prove me wrong.

I can't tell if that last line is sarcasm or not since ENGLs are noted for sounding superb at lower volumes

Also when you get THAT specific, I tend to agree. My "low volume" tube amp volume is equivalent of a volume that fills a 3 story home.

btw. is it normal to have a loud POP sound when ever you switch from channel 2 to 1 or 3-2? i called up mesa and they said it was static discharge and i can't do anything about it

Well, they guy in the video is playing a quality guitar for one. That helps. Also, he probably has the master volume set pretty high and is keeping the channel volume low. This will yeild a thicker tone and less fizz when playing at lower volume levels. The Roadster eq section is active. So keep those dial somewhat high when playing quiet. If they aren't, the ouput will be cut down and the amp will sound dull and uninspiring. Boosting Roadsters and Rectifiers with an OD pedal will also help get better high gain tones at low volume levels.

What works for me is going through all the channels when the amp is on standby and it seems to help
