    Mesa Boogies are the loudest amps out there ...

    Hearing protection is recommended...

    That’s quite a first stab at Mesa ownership. Congrats (or if you’ve been playing at volume CONGRATS!)

    I’ve been after an F100 head, fairly sure I could use it as a bass head AND a guitar head with the right cabs. Well scored!

    Out of those amps. the F100 is very tight, focused. It tracks fantastic, clear & articulate even under intense gain. Its a pleasure to play.

    I’m not an expert, but I’ve never played a Mesa that didn’t sound like all those things regardless of what I did to the knobs. But, I’ve only played 3 or 4 in my life for more than a few minutes. Former band mate had (has?) a Nomad 55 (2xEl34) and that thing took no prisoners. Plus, you could place it on someones’ chest and it would act like Thor’s Hammer and just hold them down.

    Oh my goodness.... you have some of the best amps in the world right there. I had a Studio 22 and sold it like an idiot.

    I had the F-100 212 combo for several years. It is an amazing amp. The only drawback for me was carrying that 100 pounds plus amp, up and down stairs by myself. I am not the man I used to be. The good casters on those amps help a lot.

    Nice collection of amps there. I have owned several, including a V Twin pedal. I went through that scenario, owning many Mesa products at the same time.

    I am finally down to one smaller Mesa Express Plus combo, a Mesa 112 widebody cab, and four of the newer Mesa pedals. I have things pretty much covered, at significantly lighter, and manageable weight. The sounds are amazing, at 5 watts, or all out.

    I had a Mesa Mark IV that I gigged for a while back in the late 90's. I actually really enjoyed that amp... but I got a chance to pick up an early 60's Brown Fender Concert on trade for it... and I did the deed. I did use a buddies Subway Rocket for a while and that was a killer little amp. Also, I REALLY fell in love with a TA15, not sure what the opinions are on those generally, but I really thought that amp sounded incredible. Of course that was just noodling in a store... lol. I have nothing but good experiences with Mesa.
