Looking for a new amp (and have really been ALL over the place in what I want lol) - this really appeals to me on the surface for the following reasons: it's a Mesa, it's affordable, in doing brief research most people rave about it. Questions I'd have (don't know much about heads): - when looking for amp recommendations (in this price range) nobody ever mentions this one - I'll see used express but not this - reason for that? - have read that this isn't a metal amp like it's bigger siblings - truth to that? - as far as cabs go - how important is it to match head and cab? (Ie - the Mesa cabs are pretty pricey - worth it or just paying for the name?) Alternative recommendations for similar amps? Thanks all!
