OK. Let's assume someone wanted an amp (that hadn't been drinking and his typing was all screwed up) for mostly home playing. They like rock, southern rock, santana, stevie Ray, led zep. They don't want to buy 2 amps. In order to get the right tone they need to drive the amp. This means if they get one too powerful they will piss off the significant other and face possible divorce. But, if not powerful enough no funtimes when the SO is out of the house. And who knows, maybe this hypothetical loser will get good enough to actually go play with some other losers that like rock. And he will need more amp. Taking all these drunken hypotheticals in mind, what to do? I like the concept of the Mesa Lonestar Special. You can turn it down to only 5 watts and rock out at home - or go full bore and get 30 watts. It seems to have the right features with reverb and 2 channels. Am I missing something? Is this the right idea? and if so - who else does this kind of stuff? And hey - have a good night.
