    Recently sold my Peavey 5150 and I'm looking for a replacement. Honestly I've been looking for an EVH 5150 III 50w. I just happened to notice an ad for this Mesa boogie stiletto trident local. Can anybody give me information on this...

    I found this digging around for FX loop mods... https://warpedmusician.wordpress.com/2016/01/20/mesa-engineering-stiletto-deuce-vs-marshall-jcm-800/ The meat of the article... Very interesting.

    So this one's a bummer, but the writing has been on the wall for a long time. When a young man undergoes the process of buying his first 412, deep in his heart he knows there are only two options. A Mesa Recto 412, or a Mesa Stiletto 412. Not having $1k to drop on a new cab, he buys whichever...

    Wirelessly posted Can it cop a jcm800? If so, what settings? Im borrowing a friends, looking for a couple pointers. Do not need super high gain out of it, but not medium gain either.

    I'm thinking of selling my Egnater Vengeance when I get it fixed this weekend, and buying one of the amps mentioned in the title. What are your opinions on them, I know a lot about the JVM 210/410 but the SLX is a bit obscure and there isn't much info on it. The Stiletto I know Leon and Noodles...

    Man, are these things awesome! It's got the gut punch of a good 6L6GC, but without losing any of the snarling midrange character of an EL-34. It also loses all of the rasp that the Mesa tubes have; the amps still cuts, but it isn't harsh anymore. Palm mutes sound absolutely massive, with that...

    So I was looking at some clips at the Mesa Lonestar and came across a clip of a Stiletto Ace. HOLY FUCK. Hit me in all those tingling spots in my body. So I did a ton of research on here on them and found out that the Ace seems to be the favorite out of the three variations and that's fine with...

    I'm toying with the idea of selling my DC-10 and Laney GH50L to pick up a Stiletto II Deuce. I really love both of these amps, but I think I can cover a lot of the ground I get with these amps with just one, in the Stiletto. I see some of these on the 'bay for $1k~1.5k in both the I and II...

    I cant fucking decide!!! Argh! I'm going to grab another 2x12. I cant decide if i should do another recto cab(it will stack evenly, it will match, they are easier to find) or get a stiletto(slightly different sound for more versitility, tighter compared to the recto, smaller so it wont stack as...

    I have a "like new" Mesa Stiletto Ave head. Looks damn near perfect. Work perfect. Asking $1100 or best offer, just be somewhat reasonable about it. Id like to sell it, or maybe trade depending on what I am offered. I wouldnt mind a Mesa triple rectifier, Peavy 6505, Peavy 6534. Guitars -...

    Browsing my local Craigslist, I found a pretty old ad with a guy selling his Mesa cabs. He described one as a Mesa Recto OS cab and the other as a Recto Standard. I messaged him, and surprisingly he still had both. He didn't have any pictures, so I asked him to text me some pictures of both...

    There's a Stiletto Deuce II for sale locally, I'm hoping to give it a test run. There's also a Stiletto 112 combo at the local dealer that I'm probably going to check out tomorrow. I like the Roadster (got new 6L6's recently) - but I find that ch2 brit mode sits really well in the band mix...

    So, I was playing the amp a bit, when POOF!!! loud pop, stinky smell. Tube blew. So when taking the back off, I notice this: A fucked up tranny, I do believe. So, I got irritated that the store claimed it to be in near mint shape, when it really wasn't, and being leary of other problems, I...

    So for everyone here that has a Stiletto, let's chat. I'm finally trying one with the band again, as I do every so often, and may be doing a Priest tribute project on the side, so I figured the Stiletto would work perfect for it. What modes are you finding that you use most on each channel...

    I was going to sell my DC, and go all modeler. My wife talked me out of it, saying I'd have a tough time replacing my DC-5 down the road with one in as good of shape as it is. She's probably right. So.......I kinda went the complete opposite direction, by buying another Boogie. So, I've been...
