    a boost for solos with SETTING THE level facade
    pdalier a 5 switches: 1/2/3 channel, solo, fx loop
    PSE 22 kg it is beautiful and fasting as a truck volbr /> is fairly complete as a?

    UTILIZATION

    If you have read the paragraph you dj Previous realized that no, the configuration is not forcment simple ... but luckily the manual (in English) is very well done
    one connects the switch (fourni. ..) and guitar and start (...) rgler the bte:
    the effects loop, will is assignable to configure without problem beginners but requires attention and the usual dosage when to "send" and "return" with the ad-pots hoc, because according to the rglage dynamics significantly change the amp!
    for rglage channels, we choose the mode and it RULES throughout the Manir prconise by Mr. Mesa, otherwise it's a mess ...
    Indeed, not only each SETTING THE knob channel is extremely powerful and sensitive, but it also influences directly on the pots of rglage following Drout is enough to beginners but eventually well get used to it
    if you change the mode of a channel, all rglage the channel is again (good luck ...)
    as well tell you that your rgler Recto will need to have a good time ... but it will reward you a hundredfold by both sonoritsdlivres this amp are as many as thunderous!

    SOUNDS

    Come on, let's go ...
    First we must know that the front is not known to associate with the hardware means:
    guitar or speakers or multi effects "small bills" do not sound with this head!
    Then, the grain of every guitar you plug into it will be perfectly respect ...
    Finally, plug it into a cabinet and give him Rectifier good cables to make him happy ...

    the red channel:
    ddi mode "modern" is the saturated channel par excellence
    prsence the modes "raw" and "vintage" on this channel has a low intrt my opinion (although their respective sounds are impeccable) ... but ... .
    on "modern" sounds are powerful and deep, with a large dynamic trs attack;
    Mesa grain is much lower with the Submitted, mdiums of crying so that's good, and treble ACRS without twisting the eardrums
    gnralement committed the error is too qualisation rgler the V, which has the effect of the crasis mdiums rduire and the perception of the dynamics of the amp. .. leave a good deal of mdiums and savagery of the front will put you on your knees!

    Channel orange:
    ddi in vintage fashion, the channel saturation "classic"
    "Raw" is the mode that produces the saturation the sweetest and most shades
    "Vintage" start sending trssrieusement the sauce with a marked increase in the dynamic
    "Modern" mode is the hardest, as the red channel, but with a DIFFERENT SETTING THE prsence latter

    the green channel:
    optimized for the clean mode, it produces sounds ranging from clean to crunch much pure trs nervbr /> many users dislike Recto said that channel, sounds pretty clean as they say bland
    it's not my opinion: clean of the Recto is extremely versatile (like the two other channels for that matter!) and by rglage, moving from a cold and its brilliant sound and very hot s dynamic, the whole constituting a basis for exellente be working with effects!
    "Pushed" produced a great effect of the crunch ...

    the spongy variac / bold acts on the grain-General for giving the amp a more vintage and more "hot" on spongy and more nervous and more "edge" in bold

    grinding tube gives her a less aggressive and less "tense" after the rectification diodes is expressed throughout the head of this agressivit

    OVERALL OPINION

    No need to kid ourselves:
    Recto is the typical rock trs is even his favorite playground!
    but in its raw Paisse outside hides a versatile amp trs trs possdant a wide range of sounds clean, crunch and saturated, all extremely enjoyable and usable
    confine this amp in the register of mtal or large rock would be a mistake ...
    Remember the key word with this plant gas is patience ...
    and it takes patience to learn but once the rgler hand made is happiness guaranteed!

    Note also:
    low volume the sound is good rev, but there is the use that the more one pushes the master and the bte birth of a dynamic and impressive one bite;
    12 pass on the master volume, sensations become simply phnomnales rvle Recto and all its savagery and its dynamics ... hard to go dark when the ct is taste!
    oh yes! a little advice: when a rglage please, rate it, you have to eat your Vitera the c # @!'re so by mgarde you had lost ...
    in terms of price, 2400 euros for three channels of 100w, I think there is too much to complain Contents ... right?

    So, all-tube amp 100w, 4 power tubes (EL34 Retube in on mine because it's too 6L6 draft on this amp I think), 5 preamp tubes and two rectifier tubes!

    Well, on the other knobs and connectors, just go a little lower!

    The amp has an effects loop assignable per channel and a lot of small functions that are practical and well thought out!

    UTILIZATION

    I would use messy! Knobs reacting strangely, effects loop that starts a little too sound! Limits are too many opportunities, you know where to head!

    And when we have grasped the different modes, one realizes that it's actually quite funny around easily (at least for me)!

    In short, you really grind the amp quite a while before …

    UTILIZATION

    And when we have grasped the different modes, one realizes that it's actually quite funny around easily (at least for me)!

    In short, you really grind the amp quite a while before getting out something suitable!

    The manual is nickel chrome!

    I put six to not be too cow!

    SOUNDS

    I thought it would suit my style of music but in fact: not at all!

    A low volume, I felt like playing with a fryer and high-volume, seriously encroaching on my colleague bassist!

    I play a Gibson SG and a Fender Stratocaster (with a Paf Pro acute) and bah it looks like I was playing almost all the time on the same guitar!

    Well then, I personally find that the amp responds very poorly to the nuances of the game, it's either all or nothing, it's drool as it is not possible in the lead or agreements with large, yet I easily managed to take control and never make big extreme settings!

    The cleans are insipid, lacking the crunch of attacks on the lead, the grain is clearly under-character (I never even once adrenaline rush with this amp), it is too low and if we begins to withdraw, all of a sudden there is nothing (thank you for the precision of the assay) and the whole amp fishing a serious lack of momentum and feeling in touch!

    In short, it is only my opinion of course but it did not rain at all, besides it does not pierce into the mix (not counting either the sound engineers who are tearing their hair if I believe in the experience of some people)!

    Vala, it's pretty bad because the amp was great well thought out in terms of its settings, functions and versatility, but all this at the expense of a more than average!

    I have not been conquered at all!

    Oh yes, the sound improves slightly if we bypass the effects loop, but only that bypass the tube that also drive the loop and the sound is cleaner but still lacks more fishing!

    Well, there I too want to put 4 (bah yeah, it's still fairly versatile so I will not go down too if it is I who am going to go on the forums) so I'll put five to please everyone (the knowledge that given the price of the beast, I feel like it paste 2)!

    OVERALL OPINION

    Bah I do not like it at all actually! I passed the front because I was too tired on the side of my mid-high ENGL, I wanted to have good bass, but there I was disgusted with the big bass though vomit that lead to nothing!

    I switched to a Marshall JCM900 SL-X (nothing to do with the dual reverb eh!) Is a single channel but a sound that pulls the carpet with a very good response to the attacks, etc ... Just add a volume pedal and it changes from a saturated to a clean and carefree it sounds! Plug'n'play what!

    If it again, I would do it again maybe not (although I made a small gain by selling it as I had nabbed with us), that was my biggest disappointment this amp, as if I played on the gear to someone else or as if I had a big transistor with a relatively high volume drinking!

    Vala!

    ensoi, the sound would be 9, but compared to other models in the range ... ca worth no more than 6 ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    J got the head for two years, it has been many times in repairs, I have ended up selling it, annoyed and very disappointed. franchemnt c is not normal to sell an amp of this price with components as crappy ... I am very carefully to the head and did not move far from home ... but not stop, we had to get it fixed ... them with plastic knobs that break for no reason .... sound frankly not as good as the single head or triple (in two-channel version) ... The third channel is useless for me, c is even a big disadvantage, because the good is located between the saturated channel 2 (not as Péchu) and 3 (far too aggressive at once ).....
    frankly, I have sold my head to make this single, and I've regretted it l!

    - Rear as the front is Designed, solid and prcise. The switch is possible between 6L6 / A34, not a head ngligable not rpute versatile ...

    UTILIZATION

    - The configuration is trs type: no knobs on the back, it takes time and patience to tame.
    - The front is quite comprhensible, but we must assimilate the rglages dpendent lot of the effects loop. In bypass, the head dchire the ground, and only the master channel act, rev up the volume quickly. When you connect the loop, we can send the right amount according to the manual return, which brought down the volume, and then the master is not gnral that this loss. The sound becomes more matrisable, we can push the master channels for Global Warming lamps and operate the grain, and so typical of this particular brave mesa, a grain that comes from the catacombs ...
    - This same volume of normal BPS (Group style drummer with hard knocking 100 kg dry) we obtain a clean and powerful, with a change in dynamic Obviously by increasing the volume, but heat and are the agressivit trstt.
    - The manual is in English, it helps but does not replace the hours of the stroke the knobs bte ...
    - Systm once the loop can be understood, balanced sound work well with qualisation knobs and sensitive inter-active and trs.
    - The function footswitch with "solo" rising volume, rglages Rear LED / tubes, Fashion Spongy / Bold etc. add this resource box heavy tools ...

    SOUNDS

    - I was looking for a reliable head scratching mostly metal, and APRS weeks of galre of rglages, advisor to the seller, she's given an aggressive, clean and friendly.
    - In distortion, there are many heads that give the sr + gain (ie the dreaded ENGL.), But with the rough grain, snoring and low standards, more distortion may discrditrait be the sharpness of the warrior. His strength in his chest and RSID bass heavy, which is one of the reasons for its success; excs criticize his bass is like a gun charge pump to have decline. The half-measure is somewhat Submitted with this beast, the balance in all channels is difficult to find with low-knobs-mdiums AIGS, but once mastered, it gives you a sound permanent teeth, and opens up many possibilities.
    - The quality of rglages mdiums-sharp reminder that we do stuff srieux. Like bass, they are still typs, not comparable with the crisp, loud and incisive trs a Marshall or ENGL. It remains all the same clean and prcis, and when turning the knob a few mm, it influences the other and twisting her fawn trs alive, believing that this plant m METALLIC has a me ...
    - The clean channel is dlicat matriser but resourceful, we tried it with a Washburn rcente with microphones switched from double to single, and the clarity and warmth of this channel is for this thundering monster. I use one of my ct Washburn MODEL "dime" him plant the EMG active 81 + clean and mchants the "dimebucker" And of course the clean becomes crunch if I polishes a few strings.
    I agree, however, those who talk about versatility, full of beautiful sounds derrire hide the grid-bunker, if you try it with diffrent guitars and microphones. Paralllement, avoid asking him to clean out the sound of a Fender twin coupled with a Start, it does not t Designed for a.
    - Channel 2 announces the war, but as angry + compress the channel 3, it is IDAL for rhythmic warm and expenses, with its three modes there is the margin, following the scratching and the sound that 'you ask. For fast riffs and prcis style trash-metal, the beautiful mesa demand for adaptation as each stroke of the string you mdiator dclenche an avalanche in the box, especially palm-mute, becomes a heavy and runny quickly, even with an EMG. It reproduces the hardness or softness of the guitar, not with the precision of an Engl, but the extent and severity of the Yankee. Like all wild bx is plutt the owner to adapt it than not, it asks us to touch the beautiful chrome knobs and oats for hours to get to know it .
    - The channel 3 is more garish, ideal for riffs and solos, all new dpendra of scratching, of effectiveness and rglage Search.
    These 2-channel distortion and 6 DIFFERENT modes are the strength of the mesa, they hum with a sound the depths of time, and there are big sound from blues-rock of ZZ TOP, until the war the Slayer.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I "possde" there is a new year, and it remains an Entire bte hand, meets in our local music as wild and unique. For now it does not not cause any problem, but a year is too APRS tt reliability to speak especially to all that can be read on the sites of opinion on the ...
    - A cold in a shop, it may look like an old fryer, inrglable and lends you explode of cum. Once installed on two boxes proudly MESA (conus to support its low truck without panicking, which is not the case of a box .. Marshall 1960), wear hearing protection (no balls Rifle-plugs that sound but for the expr mus), potatoes and oats up for a good time and you feel it is the what it told. When the big lights mill ran well and heating the hum and heat no longer takes the gal and resentment over the hours.
    - Ironically, this great guerrire takes a little humiliated rgler is a bit weaker than the volume gnral group, just to not eat other waltzers, which happens quickly with this kind of Moison combine, and then playing it is clear that the sound is good and if the net was stopped, the power gnral s'croule is one of the strengths of the Mesa: a prsence forcment standard without twisting the face and we all crushes.
    - Like other reviews, I think you have THE GOOD WITH COUPLER MATOS, since the strings of scratches to the box, jack-effects-pedals, no half measures with this machine manufactures California. For the bulk metal, the active EMG will be welcome, rack noise gate indispensable. I have 2 boxs plugs, which can make them smile because the volume is sufficient with a dj box. However, the scale with two furnaces is not comparable, and in addition a pole around the head of 2m, which trononne you from the bottom up, while keeping a reasonable volume n ' crasis musicos no other, feeling beautiful is worth its price: 2000 bullets helvtiques the box ... Not to mention the relief of its two towering speakers Mesa, which can rpart inhuman attacks "low FreQueNz" their sends the Correct ...
    - The price you pay is crap because it comes from the fact the United States. Too bad we often compare these MARSHALL MESA ENGL heads together as if it taient competitors. Each type is and even if they are often found in rock, they have their specific default and especially their sound, we like it or not ...
    - There are other heads try to have other benefits, I recommend one that oats bottom of a palm-mute his incisive and gain + + (like Cannibal Corpse and other waltzes) to try an ENGL, unbeatable style in this versatile and yet ...
    N'enlve nothing but the personality of the MESA, it is dtest or you are hooked, it is powerful and resourceful, and prfre the law of "all or nothing". ..
    - If we talk about quality-price report based on the price United States, seems a irrprochable ... In Europe you pay CHRE the distance, but to have a soft weapon of mass destruction that speaks with his guts, always lends trononner warmly and without getting tired (from the lamps was worth ...), may be worth trying the "msaventure" ...

    on the other hand must understand that your rglages dpend volume which you use your head (over c we put less strong presence and the treble is refined, playing the same with my personal .. mid to low the large distortion adonf c, c is like that, and c pa ki Tremonti will tell you otherwise ..)
    My silent manual in English, therefore, ease cot blah blah .. a little long, useless stuff for the average person (such kes kune cathode triiode, penthode mmmhhh cmm ki ... has a nice leg ..)
    A little tro can be powerful, but again a head 100 W all lamps c forcment not made to play in your room (Koike Custom fits me quite well, even if clear c ke ca has nothing to do with the fact of push it live.)
    So 7 / 10 parceke c its hard to find her, really ... NO this is not a MYTH

    SOUNDS

    For rock / hard rock / metal and co. PERFECT
    the limit for the Blues saw the quality of the light (if so rgl ca vau much like a fender hot rod make no mistake .. pa c TFW May not the twin either eh)
    I use it with a ltd kh 602 Mt in assets (and 85 81), and many effects tc electronics unik, Carl Martin and Dunlop / MXR, so unikemen the best of worlds, bah ca s here must rieu.j 'used elsewhere in the Zakk Wylde OD boost, perfect for large c shred the HarmoS artificial and other dishes enhanced by our dear dlicats zakk and dime.
    you can have a good crunch clean enough for the kind tit ac dc rock and other hard duly sound, no need to procrastinate, ca kills all (I agree with the hints of The Texas Chainsaw Previous lool opinion), and clearly I said trs own style sounds perfect for metallica sanitarium, fade to black, etc. ... you one cares just a tit carl martin chorus tc see (and even that would be TFW tro cold) and c perfect;
    I love the distortion, the clear Plai me well too, blah crunch, limited to a jpense ke jv tite ts and ca 9 to go well, for against the big crunch, like great big rock, very good too c
    I put 9 parceke not perfect nest, and Jaime test of Bogner, VHT and Diezel before speaking, but a good front ca is a front, he said the opposite ki bah ..... he has the right but not bien.lol

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 6 months, Juska's nothing to report bad, apart from hard argler trtrtr c ke, ke jai and still sound but it will come lol
    I love the clear sound with the chorus, really terrible, and his distos ki Obviously his monstrous, powerful, rich, deep and contrary to what kon said relatively prcises (even if not c kom the rack or the transistor but pa lamps can ask to be as "straight" ke the latter). short for metallica, pantera, slayer, black label, and other system, Alleluia.
    I tried Kelk marshall (UURRGHHH?? but hey ct The series jcm 900 2000 and also, I mean not even 800 con-inch plexi sound ...), then a hughes Puretone (ho hum. ..), a vox (not bad for the rock), and finally my hot rod, ke I just sell me parceke suitable pa, nivo videmment.Rien distortion seems to approach the mesa, but again not jcon tro other mastodons, style VHT, Soldano, Diezel ..... stop by to compare against a mesa engl, no relation, really c .. like comparing a porsche has a mclaren.

    The mesa is not known for being easy to adjust and dual-sided no exception to the rule.

    Given the number of different possibilities it offers, it gives a bit of trouble. But with a bit of will and patience, it is doing very well.

    The rest is really a versatile amp in terms of rock music in general. That is to say big rock, blues rock, hard rock, heavy, thrash metal, and so on. Perfect for what I do.

    So the difficulty (after all, relative) to adjust the machine is offset by the fantastic results that can be obtained.

    A big beast.

    UTILIZATION

    The mesa is not known for being easy to adjust and dual-sided no exception to the rule.

    Given the number of different possibilities it offers, it gives a bit of trouble. But with a bit of will and patience, it is doing very well.

    The rest is really a versatile amp in terms of rock music in general. That is to say big rock, blues rock, hard rock, heavy, thrash metal, and so on. Perfect for what I do.

    So the difficulty (after all, relative) to adjust the machine is offset by the fantastic results that can be obtained.

    For the bias, there is a switch 6L6 and EL34. The concept is to change the original lamps lamps ... sorted by mesa and therefore charged a little more expensive (we would have suspected). Forcing it can feel a bit trapped, but the amp is modified (by a specialist) to allow adjustment of bias if desired.

    Personally I leave it like that. On the one hand ca can change the lights yourself, and also ... well quite simply it sounds! The factory setting is for a certain sound out, regardless of whether the bias rule is cold or not, the key is rendering, and rendering is good.

    Finally, two points removed for the time to adjust the sound (have to find a default). 11 minus 2 is thus ca 9.

    SOUNDS

    So as I said, the style of the amp is rock in its broadest sense ... ca and mind-blowing!

    We feel the American know-how (and mesa boogie first). The rock also comes from, and if you like just this side roots, aggressive, with strong character, the front can become interesting, and even maybe more. (Well there is not only that sounds harsh, either on this machine)

    When I got it, I was playing with a Mexican Fender Start, which replaced my gibson LP repair.

    To clarify I play have no effect. I do not like that, far from the ... rather laziness and want to hear the amp as it is naturally ... and simplicity. The box is a 4x12 mesa.

    The sound, I was not 100% satisfied: the palm muting were not specific enough. In short ca drooled when even a little. It scares me a little, especially when reading the reviews of both severe on the front ... baveu.

    Since my Gibson has returned more than the above problem, ca drool at all. The palms are super precise muting, ca claque is the sound as I love metal. The lamp configuration while grinding his vintage two channel ... with the gain at mid race, and most of all not too low (and put his heavy metal ..)! I still continue to experiment with different sounds, there really is something to do.

    Frankly I understand those who complain of its baveu, but it is the guitar, not the amp. Often as an improper adjustment: Beware of excessive gain and low!

    Be careful not to be confused as a bad play and bad amp. the first step of sound, it is the fingers. If this level ca bell, the front does not forgive!

    Thus one can see little budding guitarists disgusted with their front, and then sell them to buy such a jcm 900 (and such is true), and be much happier.

    Finally what I mean is that it's a shame to slam as many gold coins as amplifiers much cheaper both agree on much.

    It's not an amp for beginner level or very average ... or the room!

    Otherwise I have nothing personal change it is the head as it was at the factory, and I have no intention of changing anything (other than the natural replacement of lamps at the end life course).

    I've also read that some consider the front not ideal for solos. It's not my opinion. To see then, but I'm surprised a little. I think instead it offers a lot of nuances in the game solo and it's just a joy to improvise with.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I put a voluntary 10 almost everywhere. Not to praise my own material (which in fact I just bought because I liked him, not built), nor to the pub.

    There are also plenty of different brands and quality to find happiness. But Mesa is part of the must and deserves attention.

    I am perfectly satisfied, and even beyond (say height). So no-brainer is the amp I wanted and my eyes it is the maximum.

    Nevertheless I see a lot of unfounded criticism on the front. I think it's also a bit annoying. It is best not to pay attention and make his own idea. Indeed there are countless guitarists won, evidenced by a large community of lovers zicos mesa.

    Criticizing is easy, much less built. And break a particular brand because so and so said ... or simply because we know how to play, because it was trying to store a volume mimum with a squier ...

    ... The plastic knobs break ... Anyway ...... the knobs are solid metal and are not a condition of above tapper hammer! ;)

    The finish is very neat. The amp is covered in leather and angles are also protected by the largest leather. Perceived quality is excellent.

    For comparison, there was a engl invader by side on the front in the store (note I love engl, the goal is not to get off the mark), the price was 100 euros about the same. Finishing this level was definitely not the same thing, the mesa was well above. After the sound that is necessarily paramount. But a good visual impression (and a nice texture to touch, to make his girlfriend jealous), it is always a plus ... ca and partly justifies a major prize of the care taken in its manufacture.

    So we arrive at the price. It's expensive. But what is the ca?

    I bought 2300 euros a nine Luxembourg (apparently less than in France), and comparing to other heads in this price range, so ca's worth. Not that the mesa is higher power, is ... just a matter of taste, and difference. on the other hand and I'm still interested in other brands of which have their own charm. Sectarianism not for me

    But the face is forever! : D

    I find that many are steered too much on the price difference Europe / US. The import and intermediaries are not in my opinion the only ones involved, even if they affect the above. Mesa must surely increase the price for Europe to adapt its position to compete, and keep an image of prestige. It's artificial but it's marketing: It winds less but more expensive, and we keep the prestige.

    Anyway Here there are ways to manage to find a good price if you want to have one. The single must be the same level (I have not tried it so I guess) to the dual and cheaper, it has taken into account. There's always the running of the OCCAZ too.

    Other trademarks formidable, sometimes very expensive, often less, also exist. It would be a shame to shine on one side or another.

    PS: sorry for the accents but the keyboard is configured for the German language, and can not find how to change ca.

    Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier 3 Channels HeadPublished on 04/08/08 at 06:57

    100w all-tube amp mesa (adchire). T he hard. Spread the word: it is not for a pad (which is only I changed it against a single correct). If you play with your pad, it's the same feeling as playing in a refrigerator (you can imagine)!

    UTILIZATION

    The clean is easily adjustable. For channel 2 is not difficult but trs for channel 3, it takes a little time ... Anyway, the precision of knobs, has to pay! In addition, two channels switchable 3-position clean + the possibility of 2 or 8, it's cool even if I was serving as both modern and clean.
    For the manual, mine silent in English a little harsh, but It is not necessary to have a manual to use an amp.
    The footswitch is perfect because it possde, in addition to the three channels and mode "solo", switch "FX" for the little loop that s'avrer useful (possibility that derrire RULES because the loop can be assigned a single channel).

    SOUNDS

    It is extraordinary: a EHJV unthinkable, sound and volume gnial overkill (too?).
    In order:
    To clean: sound a little slow mtalleux slamming as "The Call of Ktulu" or "Master of Puppets" by Metallica, or as clean as "Bullet Ride" by In Flames. Trs is hot but if you have high-powered microphones, may saturate a bit (and I have X2N ToneZone DiMarzio and it is more violent than the EMG81). But it is seen by reducing the amount of the gain and master. Having tried a telecaster 60th anniversary on, trs is nice, atmosphere "still having fun" Eagle eye cherry but with a potato and a little less snap (normal, we are not Fender Twin in either).
    For channel 2: the rock, hard rock or rock trs hot! A seed round with a warm amp Survolt howling of hard-80s rock. The grain is a bit like "Outta get me" but more nervous of Guns'n'Roses.
    For channel 3: You're dead! In fact, it is dry and the trs palm mute is a bit messy. Survolt is a channel which, if we add the gain of the mode "solo" is perfect for the lead. It is prcis and howling like a switch to F1! In rhythm, the sound is close to Symphony X before the album "The Odyssey" (I have the same microphone as he is a bit to also).

    OVERALL OPINION

    It's a versatile amp but plutt ax all of the same rock. We will not have with the sound of David Gilmour languorous but the Mesa Boogie Rectifier, this is not what is asked. He normment of PCHE. It regrets the lack of reverb all the same but I just chipotte.
    I kept it a year and I then took a single correct as exploitable for me (no scne, trs little rpt '), but despite this, the s preparation was tough.

    Super simple setup, you do not have e. Na

    SOUNDS

    Well here is the most, interresting for me.
    So I am doing metalcore, heavy etc, etc, all styles of metal what. For this style of music, Dark is the "hi-gain amp." I managed to make less Virula styles, be aware that this is a very versatile head.
    I play with an LTD EC-1000 deluxe serial, mounted emg81/85, coupled with a Boss GE-7, a graphic equalizer, which further refines the sound of the beast. I have a baffle 'low-end mounted jensen behringer, but I agree that for now.

    Its clean: Not the most beautiful in the world, but its still a very, very correct, I admit to not yet having found "the" sound on that channel.

    Crunch channel: Already sent it starts, I use this channel there and 3 of "modern". The crunch is almost similar to channel 3, but is much more round and warm. With that the solo was fine, may have varied in its most brutal of the vintage.

    Modern channel 3: Well, it's my favorite channel. There I found my sound, there is the mesa, it flows TIMPs. Warning 100 watt mesa is all just huge in my apartment, I play has a master output, and a 0.2 channel master, lolololol, not serious it's too violent, and in addition the sound really takes off, as around 10 am, the lights began to sing, but the neighbors have already apel cops, lol.
    Returning to her is beautiful, I'm still excited.
    As against a group, the second scratch is the same, the sound is more defined, cleaner, a huge time.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for one month, I waited to leave a review, but I cracked the head really deserves its reputation. I do not really understand why some people crachenet above.
    I love all of the head, nothing to say for myself.
    I played on many heads before: peavey ultra, 5150, xxx, JMC 800, 900, 2000, krank (not bad dutout for that matter), and the head surpasses all that.

    I had not dutout dear, for nine against it hurt a lot, but I think the quality is like all the payroll.

    I would do this choice, without hesitation.

    SOUNDS

    It is the UN's metal par excellence. we like it or not. course very US-oriented rock.

    the clean is very good on this amp if you have a very good guitar.

    distortions are fat, heavy and medium. it dun lopposé engl, who seeks precision forget mesa. it's closer dun marshall much more cumbersome.

    jai play with it VBK ESP eclipse (emg 81 and 85) and I sold a Les Paul Gibson of the early 80's (microphones thim shaw)

    I love the US's, jai finally found the holy grail. cest well above the emg but honestly it sounds better with hotter pickups, seymour duncan type, etc. of gibson paf

    the 3 channel mode are really exellent, old vintage marshall, marshall 80's to modern jusquau mode of cest enorme mesa and found the sound of his albums.

    the sound is fat, very fat, some narrive not have a sound with, and say it's shit, I understand. each loaf when you play you do not forgive lentendez ca at all. ESMP and even rang my top blah You really tapper in the big scratches for quil rings. a low-end pedal or patch down gamem cest not even bother. totu must be at the top including you. totu once it's been, it's a treat.

    I put 9 after changemetn full of tubes. otherwise I will put 6.

    he must be put in the top tubes, preamp, and power including redreseuses change. Then the mesa sounds good. the top and to a bias adjustment to transfer the next nest dabeille quon when high gain is

    OVERALL OPINION

    auncun amp does Sonen like mesa. imitated but never equaled, the mesa has a sound quon recognized among many others. It is part of its modern amp comem the legendary Marshall JCM 800, peavey 5150. to these three you the 90% of the metal the last 20 years.

    snt the connectivity advantages, the methods available

    its downsides are the price (under the 1000 us) therefore nine euros EST 2500 not worth it. 1600 1700 has the problem not worth it.

    what shocks, cest quil significantly less gain than a peavey 5150 jai had for years.

    ca little disappoint many. a mesa recto in a prod ca not ring, cest toujorus coupled with a marshall or peavey. 5150 + front chimaira, linkin park front + JCM800, Killswitch Engage front + 5150 + Orange



    remember that a group it does not pierce the mix but brings a heaviness. coupled with a peavey, or the engl accesirement jcm 800 or the orange, the sound is massive, it's one more wall of sound, a sort of porridge quil be tamed
    almost
    I wanted a mesa nen and I am not disappointed. Now I was as much fun on my 5150 which costs two and a half times cheaper.
