    While not quite metal, still a cool amp! Our friend Chris Bryant stopped in to shoot a demo of the all new Mesa California Tweed! No pedals, EQ, etc. used! :yesway:

    MESA/Boogie® Mesa Boogie California Tweed 6V6 Guitar Amplifier | MESA/Boogie® Just off my rant of Wangs copying amps, this looks like a copy of a certain early Fender?

    James (7DT) still has more amps than me, but I'm quickly approaching Leon territory for sure. So this one has a story. I was late-night websurfing on and saw a Triaxis listed for a crazy low price, and it was in pretty much mint condition. I hemmed and hawwed on it for about 20...

    A few months or so back, I asked everyone what Mesa Mark to buy. After sniffing around and hunting for deals, one showed up! Inside, it's a... MARSHALL?! So this bad boy is a modded 81 JCM800. It's apparently an exact copy of Gary Holt's Langer modded Marshall. Only 4 of these exist in...

    I blame you guys for this. Here I was, ignorant in my bliss, and in denial that selling my triaxis years ago was a mistake. And then what happens? Someone only goes and makes some stupid thread on the triaxis, and yes, I remember. I love the LD1 red on mine, one of the best recto sounds (for me...

    I've been GASing HARD for a Mark series amp for a while now, but I've been indecisive on what to buy. My choices keep flopping between the III, IV, and JP2C. I've been eyeing the III the most, but I gotta be real, the JP2C would be pretty killer. However, it's pretty expensive, and given I...

    Mesa Boogie Fillmore 25 Guitar Amplifier | MESA/Boogie® I'm in. I love the 50, but this is smaller and cheaper. I'm cheap, so........:D I'll be getting in the standard Jeff issue black tolex with gold grille.

    So I've had the Torpedo Captor for about 6-7 months now, and I have to admit its the single best tool I've ever purchased for recording. I've been doing home recording as an incredibly fun hobby for almost 20 years now, and the captor is simply incredible. I firmly believe that a great tube amp...

    Mesa Boogie Fillmore 50 Guitar Amplifier | MESA/Boogie® Looks interesting; 6L6s, 2 identical channels. Wonder what it's supposed to sound like (Dumble-y? American-y? Low gain Mark-y?) According to the manual, it's a circuit design that got shelved prior to the Mark I?

    Both are in mint condition, come with all original packaging, manuals, and whatever else they came with, and have had home use only. The Mesa is completely stock, works fantastically. The AFX2 is the original version. It has a few of my patches on it, and quite a few aftermarket impulses, but I...

    When played by me :drumpf: Ran though some of the Mesa's on the axe fx III. Did the recto, IIC++ (Metallica Amp), Mark IV, Triaxis yellow (IIC+), FAS Modern III and II and the Thordendal Modern (Old recto). These were hard to dial in but are rewarding once you do. I mean the recto sounds good...

    I seriously doubt that any of you are close enough to take advantage of this - or maybe very few are interested to begin with... but... After acquiring the Mark V, I'm going to move my Lone Star. It's a Mesa/Boogie Lone Star Classic 2x12, and it's a beast. It sounds fantastic - all but 2...

    I just bought a quad preamp (which has been discontinued for like 30 years) used and it was missing the fuse/fuse holder on the back, i called them they had a dude on the line that knew what i was looking for, checked to confirm that the parts they had on hand would fit and got them sent out...

    Woke up to a random phone call, turned to be fedex and holy shit I got dressed and out to the front door like my house was on fire! Really stoked it arrived a day earlier. About to plug it in and rip on it through some headphones. Finally joined the mesa boogie club!

    Finally got to shoot something with this - video is a little grainy thanks to poor liting and my lack of a djent-approved light rig, but the audio is fine, I promise. Holy shit I love how this thing records. :lol:

    Back in august, one of my good friends died, and now his brother who he shared an apartment with needed help with rent, so I bought the recto from him. However, It's simply too much amp for me and I basically bought it as a favor -- It's a 3-channel triple rectifier solo head. Kinda dirty from...

    Perfect condition, few years old, studio use only. I mean, it's a fecking mesa oversize, what do you want me to say? It's on every other metal album for the last 20 years. £800. Collection very much preferred, but I might be able to meet part way depending on circumstances. If posted, buyer...
