Very versitile amp

LeeM, 04.01.2014
Firstly I want to say when I this was first delivered it was a used item. There were bits missing and the reverb didn't work. I contacted Thomann the day it arrived and without any messing they organised for it to be picked up and sent me out a new one. Its my first time I had an issue with a product from thomann and I was really impressed with how they sorted it out so quickly with no argument. Well done Thomann!!!
I wanted an amp that could be used for practice at home, but yet had lots of clean headroom without breaking up.
I find for clean sounds I use it in 50W mode (even at home) and you have tons of head room and the tone is just beautiful. However if you want it to break up just a little you can drop down to 25W or 5W and it just adds the right amount of overdrive.
For the higher gain second channel I was surprised at how good it sounds in 5W mode. The "blues" setting is gorgeous, and just makes you want to play for hours. The same with the "burn" sound, I was surprised how good it sounded at 5W, and for an extra dimension switch up to 25 or 50.
Don't think that the power switching is just a method of lowering the volume while being able to drive the power stage more. Its much more than that. It give you lots of different and interesting tones.
The reverb on this is fantastic. It sounds so rich.
Im playing through this with a PRS 408 and an Ibanez js1000, and using either guitar I can easily get tones and overdrives to suit jazz, country, metal, blues etc.
Since I bought it I haven't felt the need to add any overdrive or distortion to get more metal sounds, Ive just had a play with the effects loop which is very useful for time based effects.
I had read that people found it difficult to dial in the right tone, on the contrary ive found this one of the easiest amps ive ever used to get the tones I want.
Over the years ive had many amps, and have designed and built a lot of my own valve amps, but this one beats them all.
Im using this with the Transatlantic 1x12 cab. My main reason for choosing this was it had the black shadow speaker and it fits with the width of the head. It has a different colour speaker grille but actually really suits the amp.

Im just adding to the above report. Ive owned this amp for a year and a half now. Every time I play it i just fall more and more in love with it. My intention now is to keep it till i die and pass it down to my grand children! :)
Its just gorgeous!

Working horse amp

SinisaN, 22.07.2014
What to say about Mesa? This is my third Mesa (Mark V and Road King II before this one) and you can't go wrong with Mesa after all. Built like a tank, top qualiti, this one can cover all sounds in my cover band, from sparkly cleans (circuit from the Lone Star, one of the best cleans) to hard rock / metal sounds. Two channels with very nice and improved footswitch, now with famous Mesa EQ. All in all, very afordable top amp, not to big but with big sound. You can praktice in your room on 5W or play in big avenuo with 50 wats. This one stay!
