    It's in German, but the tone is universal.

    Hamar means donkey in Arabic. Wonder what it means in German.

    Thanks for posting. After years of owning many amps, I'm very interested in this one.
    I've heard the combos are heavy, but I think I can make an exception in this case...

    These are great amps....lots of tweaking involved to dial into your sound and rooom...but incredible. No weak spots IMHO.

    Downside: there are very heavy! If I were a young man, they would be IT for me.

    I thought I was happy with my MKIV but seeing that vid has me wondering if I shouldn't trade up.

    I don't get it. This amp sounds less than good. I have yet to hear really good demos. I played it for an hour and it sounded ok.

    I don't get why my good friend spent $3000 on his XTC when my Mark V sounds, to me, better than it (and for $1800 less new) - but he wouldn't have it any other way.

    Maybe you played one with fonky tubes. All but one person who's played the Mark V at my job has liked it. We've sold as many as we've received. Or maybe you just don't like how Mark amps sound.

    Mesa's sold like 2400 of them in seven months, so somebody likes the amp. :)

    The XTC and MarkV don't sound alike. The XTC has this lower midrange bark that I've not heard from too many other amps.

    It is hard to dial in a 2 channel or 3 channel Boogie from time to time....I think I would literally be insane with all of those options. I love Boogies...but I am scared of this one.
