Looking for people with experience with both of these amps in a touring situation.
We know ampegs die a lot but we hope the newer ones fixed that issue. The mesa has a history of overheating, not sure if that's fixed in the 2013's.
It will get run hard twice a week at practice and daily on tour. Reliability, ability to keep up and good base tone is what we're after.
Do you want to carry around $250 worth of spare power tubes?
