To help keep my upcoming shipping costs to Norway down, I've just been presented with an opportunity to unload my Marshall 1960 cab, and buy this:
It's a 1990 Mesa .50 Caliber + in almost dead mint cond., sounds really nice with a Celestion C90, and sounds deadly through a closed-back cab. My plan is to not schlep a 4x12 overseas, bring this and my Vetta head, and then buy a Diezel 2x12RL cab after I get there, to use with either the .50 or the Vetta. This little beastie is so nice to just pick up and go for a jam, is loud as hell, and really nails great old-school thrash tones as well as chimey, blackface-type cleans with. It's surprising how great condition it's in for a 20 yr old amp, too.
Good plan, or not?
Used to have a DC-5. I kinda miss it. Only thing I didn't like about it was its quirky effects loop. I'd say go for it.
