After several years of buying, using and selling hand wired boutique amps, I’ve decided to return to Mesa. I’ve had the privilege and joy to own many exceptional boutique amps from: (in no particular order) Two-Rock Victoria Tone King Divided by 13 Germino Bruno Longhorn Dr. Z *probably more Let me say that each amp was exceptional in build quality and the tones they were designed to create. There wasn’t a single one that I couldn’t live with and love forever. My decision to return to Mesa amps is multifaceted. First of all, Mesa amps are as solid as anything on the planet. The tones they create are up there with the best imo and typically offer a large variance of tones in one amp. Their customer service is still as good as anyone’s even though they are huge compared to small boutique operations. Even though the Mesa amps I will purchase are not inexpensive, each will be less than the boutique amps I’ve owned. I play blues, blues rock and classic rock, so I have owned and plan to own 3 specific models. The Lone Star Classic, Lone Star Special and Electra Dyne. These 3 amps cover every category I will ever play and then some. Mesa variants of blackface Fender, Fender Tweed, Vox and Marshall. Yes, the tones are very similar to these I named, yet uniquely Mesa, but wonderful tones none the less. I’ve enjoyed the journey and will never regret trying such outstanding gear. I’ve realized that Mesa amps offer me everything I want and need.
