I have an '87 Mesa Mark III combo red stripe. I have had a love/hate thing going with this amp since I got it. If I don't play any of my other amps, I think it sounds great. Once I plug into something else (especially amps that cost significantly less), I start scratching my head and questioning if it was worth it or not. I'm basically a rock/metal player and love all things hi gain. I'm looking for any suggestions for settings to get the most out of the 3 channels; especially the crunch and solo channels. And yes, I have downloaded the suggested settings from the Boogie website and I didn't think any of those were really all that great. any suggestions appreciated!
