Nicer cleans than overdrive in that one.


Was that the cheap one up north? what has happened to 2nd hand value for Mesa'


Cheap one in Christchurch.

I once traded a shitload of gear for a Mesa. These days I suppose they're more mainstream.

That 5:50 combo has been around a wee while IIRC. There's a Nomad 45 combo on FB too, it's down to $700 I think. Been there a while, not sure if it's still around.

I had a 5:50+ briefly and the cleans we're really nice. Low gain is nice. High gain not so much. Still, it's a much more versatile option than the Nomad.

I had a dc10 I couldn’t quite get along with ... weighed more than a twin too, if you’d believe it.

Yeah, I'm not sure where all the weight in a Mesa comes from. Aluminium chassis might as well be iron for all the difference it'd make.
