Very cool, I heard the bass amp is going to be the replacement to the 400+, all tube baby. The new rectos look pretty cool too, almost like three channel Roadsters.

yup, that's the word i got on the bass amp too.....
my bass player uses a 400+ and it is a monster, so i have high hopes for the replacement. last i heard it will NOT be using 6L6s, i think it's going to be 6550s.
looking forward to seeing it for sure.

all of the updates to the rectos are things that i would use for sure...glad they got back to the series loop finally!

can't wait to see what else they have up their sleeve.... i have been in the mood for a lone star special lately but if they have something new maybe i will have to wait and see......

Exactly, I'd rather a straight AC-30 clone than the LSS. But I think still going to get a DRRI opposed to a LSC. Of course thats all down the line since I was banned from getting gear for year since I got the Mark V.

Maybe all the little info I have I got from the Boogie Board. Not sure where their sources came from.

$900 is what they are saying on the Boogie Board. Too much IMO. It will not sound $400 better than a Night Train. Not to me anyways.

Yeah, $900 does seem to be a bit much for this type of product, considering the other options that are available. That being said, the Egnater Rebel 30 is $800, and people haven't been complaining about its price that I've heard.

Just played with one of these.

WOW!

Blown away by alllll the tones in this amp head. Talk about versatile!

I'm really not a fan of Mesa amps in general but this one is very cool - organic, touch responsive, flexible, small, footswitchable channels, etc.

Played it thru a mesa 212 openback cab with an off-the-shelf PRS SE single P90 thing.

Haven't been interested in a new amp for some time - but that fired up the G.A.S. in a big way.

Would be particularly great for studios!

I got a chance to play one and thought it sounded great. Wonderful clean tones as well. Love the blue light. Cool amp.

It looks very interesting. Although I own and can appreciate amps without effects loops, the TransAtlantic would need a loop for my needs.

100% agreed. Have owned and spent a lot of time with the others...no question. Blown away by the TA.
I just spent 30 minutes AB'ing the NT vs. the TT and it absolutely blows the TT away in every category. Clean channel alone is worth the $400 price diff.

GREAT new amp from Mesa, that even Mesa haters should at least give a spin.

Seems weird they'd make a 2-channel amp with no effects loop though, especially at that price. From a product segmenting standpoint, it can't be that much different than an Express which has the effects loop and a few channels. If no effects loop, why not just a one channel amp and a less expensive price. Like someone else said though, the Egnater Rebel 30 is $800 and made in China.
