Really impressed with the sound in demos. I like the tone better than the main Mark V from what I've heard. One of the biggest drawbacks of some of the other Mesas I'm looking at (namely LSC, Mark V) is that they weigh a whole lot, and I'm not sure how long I'll be able to tolerate that on the road, especially because I plan on getting a road case. Anyway, it's hard to figure out without owning an amp how it'll do for headroom. Although I love the clean tones I've heard I'm afraid I won't be able to get them at stage volume. We tend to play 2-500 people rooms and although I'm miked up at 99% of shows, I prefer to get most of my own volume through the amp as opposed to in the wedges. This question also extends to the Lonestar Special and honestly a bunch of other amps.
