So yeah, my curiousity has been peaked lately about the following heads...
2010 Road King II
2010 Roadster Multi Watt
2010 Triple Recto
Of these, it seems like the Roadster would be the best choice. I like having 4 good channels (uber clean, classic crunch, marshallesque hi gain, mesa hi gain) & the ability to solo boosts any channel, so the obvious choice is the road king or roadster. From my understanding, the roadster is a road king without progressive linkage & about 800 cheaper, correct?
I hear that due to the 150W of the triple, the cleans are awesome, but with the wattage thing, I can drop the hi gain channel to 50W to keep my volumes managable.
Anyway, I'm sure the new redesigned roadster would be the ideal mesa for me, but I'm curious if the other amps I mentioned have any other advantages I'm overlooking.
And thus, the test of the Axe-FX against the temptations and desires of the ultimate gear whore comes to a conclusion
That said, it sounds like the Roadster would be right up your alley, and you might find the Stiletto mod (changes the EQ pots on channel 2, I believe, to get it to perform like one of the channels on the Stiletto amps) useful too.
