    Theres a 50w head too. I tried to read the info on the 50w combo and thought it said something about how 50w saturates early or something to that effect. Reading one letter at a time makes it tough.

    "A UNIQUE SONIC PROFILE WITH CRUSHING CHARACTER.
    Sometimes less is more, and if that’s your mantra, the Badlander 50 is a perfect fit. Weighing-in at considerably less, there are physical considerations at play for sure. Yet the Middleweight contender in the Badlander Family has its own story to tell when it comes to defiant attitude and a rebellious nature. Some feel there is a unique benefit to lower wattage amplifiers, often described as a sense that top end travels more freely and quickly through the circuit. While perhaps a bit over-simplified, truth be told the Badlander in 50 Watt form does display that characteristic along with it’s bouncy, easy to play nature."

    And it looks exactly like a modern variant of the ractifier. Awesome.

    Odd that the Mesa site doesnt seem to show the 50w head but they are pre-sale on reverb.

    I like the guitar. The amp? Minority opinion but Meh. Sounds like mud.

    Honestly, and IMO, the best part of this is the bass tone in the intro.

    Watched the Mesa demo and the instrumental part of Ola's, and I'm not really hearing anything that any other good high gain EL-powered head does, an EL-powered Rectifier included. What makes this one cooler than a Recto with EL34s or a Stiletto, for those of us who don't care about onboard speaker emulation?

    EDIT - of course, my DGAF will die the moment Andy Timmons does an amazing-sounding demo, I'm sure.

    To me, it sounds great in the Mesa vid, and muddy in the Ola vid.
