Hey guys, I've been looking to get another amp. I own a BF Super and it is too big (physically) to haul to rehearsals. I've been looking for a smaller amp to get to take to rehearsal and gigs if I'm feeling so inclined. I play a strat and 335 and I work off a mostly clean platform and use pedals for hair. My choices Brand New Mesa Express 5:50 2X12 $999 or 1983 Mark iib w/road case...100W/60W $840 My impressions The mark is really flubby when you turn the bass past 3. It is not as loud as I thought it would be. Might need new Power Tubes. The express sounds great. It is bigger/more expensive.....not necessarily lighter. Has more features. Thoughts?
