Bad Cat Cub 15R Mesa Lonestar 1x12 Mesa F100 2x12 I'm playing country right now but I'm a blues rock guy at heart and I play a fair amount of pop-rock. I've had the bad cat now for about 6 weeks and love the tones I'm getting for edgier country and pop-rock. The lack of head room obviously means I'm not getting much of a clean clean tone which I don't mind but my country bandmates do. Another vote for the bad cat is that it appeals to the gear snob in me. The Lonestar is a great amp. Probalby the most appropriately versatile amp I've every played. More than enough volume and a great sounding gain channel. If the bad cat hadn't come into the store I work at I think I'd have had this at home for the past 6 weeks. I can see adding a high gain pedal to this amp and getting almost any tone I want out of it....except the class A bad cat thing.... The F-100 makes real sense financially and I dig alot of it's tones. It had a great clean channel and the gain channel is cool for harder rocking stuff. I can see using that channel for the pop-rock gigs and using my ac and rc boosters on the clean channel for the country just like I am now with the bad cat. I'm really trying to get the best amp or all of my needs. I'm diving headfirst into the gigging scene and back into lessons in an attempt to see where I can get with music. Gear is not everything but it certainly helps to have a rig that just works you know? What to all you voices of reason think? For now this has to be my one amp to use with an Anderson Cobra and a Fender Strat to get all the tones I'm going to need. I want quality tones and versatility. Basically clean, edge of dirty and lead tones and a heavy rhythm tone as well. Fire away!
