    Hi all -

    Stopped by a local mom and pop shop today to try some used amps. Came across a slightly used, but in great condition, Mesa Dual Rectifier Roadster 112 combo. Footswitch was included. Sounded killer and very versatile. I don't know the age, but it looks very well taken care of

    Shop wanted $1550 plus tax, but knocked off $100 without me asking to make it $1450 plus tax.

    I really don't know much about mesa amps or their resale value, so can others let me know if this is an outstanding, good, decent, or bad deal?

    Otherwise I was thinking about trying a Egnater Tourmaster 4212 combo for $1599 list.

    Thanks!

    I have never been dissatisfied with any of my Mesa purchases except for the Stiletto head I had a couple years ago. It wasn't a bad amp by any means, just not for me.
