    Any Roadking fans?

    There's a lot of people really into the rooadster, so I've been wondering how many people dig the Roadking? I've now had mine since january, and loved it on tour, but ever since I've ot it home and have been able to play around with it I've discovered so much more. It's just a bit mind boggling at times and I sometimes can't decide what I like best. Any case, who else here has appreciation for this inane little amp?

    Oh, and no thread complete without porn:

    I will be getting a mesa cab for it as soon as I sort out my dire "I'm a musician" finances.

    is it a 1 or a 2?

    Any case, I am in love with el34+6l6 on the 3rd channel for rythm, it's just got a nice bite to it and aggression, and then I love the 4th channel with rectifier tubes and 6l6's for lead, it's got that lovely sponginess too it.

    But, vainly, most of all I love it being all black with black treadplate, and I plan to replace the knobs with black ones for extra "can't see it in the dark" overkill

    I love the Road King, it is the best amp Mesa makes. If I had roadies to move racks, I would still have mine.

    I didn't know Orange made angled cabs!
    Too much focus leads to tunnel vision
    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion

    I feel like this should not be surprising at all though
