I'm investigating the Mesa Express 5:50 + and the Mesa Lonestar Classic. I'd like to hear some first hand comparisons from those of you who have spent ample time playing both amps. I'm highly considering both of these as a gigging/rehearsal amp, for channel switching in a variety of genres including: Blues Rock, Jazz, Punk, 90's grunge, "stoner rock" RnB and Funk. Currently I'm playing a Mesa Maverick 2x12 which I absolutely LOVE. While it is a killer two channel amp it is voiced as having rhythm and lead channels. Both sound great, but I'd like add a 2 channel 1x12 to my arsenal that has a clean and crunch channel. I'm quite satisfied using a TS or similar pedal for lead tones.
