Background: I'm 50, play mostly in my basement. Played a lot in my teens into early 20's and then stopped for twenty years. Plays blues, classic rock etc. Use a PRS singlecut and G&L tele or strat copy. Three weeks ago I bought a Mesa Lone Star Special 112. Had a BP30 before it and a Rivera Chubster 40 before that. Couldn't get the range of sounds I wanted out of the BP and the Rivera didn't sound great at basement volumes. The LSS provides much more range of sounds and any volume level (but I haven't taken it to gig at this point). Clean, dirty, 30 watts, 15 watts, 5 watts. Different sounds at all settings. Very good reverb (with two settings). Very funcional channel switching and distinct channel personalities. Looks good. Handles pedals well. Came w/ wheels and a cover. I really don't know if there's an amp out there than can provide all of this in one 112 box. At least not one for this money. In short, this is a great do it all amp for someone like me. Now if I could only find this level of performance and diversity of sounds for $800 or less I'd be platinum instead of golden. Does your amp "do it all" for you?
