OK, I know I posted on another thread that the Mesa California Tweed was probably not where I would look for sweet tweed sounds. But that was before I had a chance to play one in person. That changed my mind. So, I traded my old Priceton Recording amp, sold of a PartsCaster, and voila, I’m now the owner of one. Much more impressive in person than on the YouTube videos, and the variable power option along with the master volume (that I was sure I’d dislike) make this a really usable amp in a variety of situations. My favorite is the 30W option (one pair of power tubes in pentode and one pair in triode) is my favorite. Really friendly to pedals. The 49 pounds is a drawback, but, considering the tones, not so bad. Mine is the standard configuration and colors; it might be nice to have something else, but the differential pricing is a little over the top.
