Which do you mesa guys go with? I like my cleans big and lush, for open-chord stuff. I don't do a lot of clean soloing at all, and if I do it's usually with an acoustic, so I'm leaning towards 50W RTT vs 100W diode, since it sounds like diode is meant to be brighter.

You might want to try 100 watt tube rectification. It'll be a little darker, but if you like your cleans to be clean, the extra headroom is nice.

I've always found the diode options to be 'stiffer'. I like my cleans big, bright and compressed as hell (bulbish in a way, as much as I am loathe to compare myself to his sound! :lol:) whereas the recto options sound a bit spongier and a bit more dynamic.

:yesway: This feels like a winner at first listen.
