    I missed having a Mesa. So I bought one.

    Well since selling my triaxis and recto, I felt the need for Mesa in my Arsenal again. I've been searching for a mark over the last while but no luck. Then this popped up, a Nomad 100 for $850 so I jumped on it. I have fond memories of recording with one years back and having one in the studio. It was awesome and worked brilliantly for double tracking.

    Plus it's in classy as fuck burgundy leather with wheat grille cloth.

    Only downside: got it home then proceeded to blow a tube immediately. XD So I'll pull one pair to get it operational and order a new set.

    Thinking of using it as a modding platform. First thing to fix: the fucking effects loop. No more parallel shit, I need a series loop.

    I had a Nomad combo and loved it. It ripped with a boost pedal.

    Nice choice. I did the series/parallel loop mod on my Rectoverb, really simple mod that makes a world of difference.
