  1. I am glad we are different and have different preferences... The amp is really good if you like Mesa and all its "peculiarities", but personally I am not comfortable with that. Good quality, a lot of possibilities. My preferences are somewhat simpler, without the bells and whistles.
  2. Well, I ordered one, got it, tried to like it but couldn't stand an amp that DEMANDS a lot of tweaking to sound good in the way I like good sound. I found the amp very shrill with no bottom. I had to twiddle the life out of the knobs to find a decent tone. I don't like decent - I like good. After a month trying to like the amp I traded it for yet another Jule Amp Monique and matching Jule Amp M700 power amp. Still, yesterday I traded a bass for an older Mesa combo with just a few controls: the Carbine M6 212 combo. Maybe that one is a keeper...
  3. Yep! Still available! Here is my feedback:
  4. Well, now I've tamed the beast. It really sounds nice. Another nice. But nice. I like it.
  5. Well, put it this way: I have some tweaking to do... I listened to the DVD Rush in Rio tonight, and the tone Geddy has is kind of clanky too, just way sharper...
  6. A friend described the tone in this amp with one word: "clanky"! It is, kind of, compared to my Spartan...
  7. Very nice bass! I deeply regret I sold mine...
  8. Nice bass! I guess you know what a flamingo in the garden means/signals...
  9. This is really another creature than those amps I am used to use... Mostly, when using an amp, I just plug and play. With this one I have to tweak, tweak, tweak. Maybe an imaginary thing, but I feel it sounds different from time to time... 🤔
  10. It has another charachter than the amps I am used to. Took some eq:ing to get the tone that is "me". Mostly I go flat, but not on this baby...
  11. First a big box arrived after a long wait. I ordered it in October from a Swedish shop. I could have got it faster overseas, but I really wanted the 5 year warranty from the Swedish shop. I know Mesa had some issues previous with their gear... Under some supervision - kind of - from the Very Hairy King of the Basement I unpacked the amp... Then stacked upon the Genzler BA12-3 cabs for a test... /2krE48y]2021-01-12 - MESA 1[/url] by Roger Hedin, on Flickr Well, it sounded as I could expect. Not at all like my Spartan or Genzler amp, but more like a tube amp. It takes some tweaking to get things right, not just set and forget. I like it.
  12. I just had to... The headstock of my Steinberger XL2...
  13. I met Larry Hartke back in 2013 in NYC; he told me the bass at 9 o'clock, mid on full and treble fully off was as close as straight frequency response you could get. I really liked the amp; simple to use and well sounding. No bells and whistles what so ever...
  14. Thanx for the review/reflections! I have ordered one, and it will surface after the new years weekend. I will use it with my Genzler Bass Array cabs, either 2 x BA12-3 or BA210-3 + BA15-3 setup, depending on the scene/venue. The only Mesa amp I've owned was a Buster Bass top with a 115 cabinet, but that one sucked big! It was the most contra-intuitive amp I've ever owned. I couldn't get any decent tone out of it at all, just a lot of treble and super lows but nothing in between. I really anticipate getting the TT-800 in my hands...
