Forget the signature, this amp does it all

I currently own a Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier Roadster, Mesa Express 5:50 (old model) and this beast. Out of all my amps this is the one that gets recorded the most. You can get any sound you want or need out of this amp after you get the hang of how it works.Each channel has an independent boost control that changes the voice of the channel as well as squeezing out a small volume boost in the clean channel. Channel 1 is intended as a clean channel and is voiced very similar to a Fender Twin. The EQ has 3 bands with push/pull knobs that let you tweak the voicing of the channel further. The cleans are chimey and snappy and can go up to a gritty pushed type tone with the boost engaged or the gain knob turned up.Channel 2 and 3 share their EQ but sound very different. Channel 2 is very akin to a Marshall type distortion (think JCM 800) while Channel 3 is kind of unique. There is a massive amount of gain stashed away on this amp through the boost switch or by using the high gain input. Unlike most amps even with the gain turned up high you still retain insane note definition. Channel 3 is perfect for low tuned metal or anything that requires aggressive drive tones.The power section also comes with Focus and Presence controls which regulate how snappy and precise is the note attacks and overall brightness. It also comes with an amazing sounding reverb.Aside from the tone it also comes with gobs of useful features such as selectable wattages (12-100 watts), MIDI control (with a MIDI footswitch included to boot), series/parallel loop (which can be used to control overall volume) and a series of line and recording outputs. The best feature of this amp is how transparent it sounds no matter how much gain you use. Coupled with variable wattages you can go from vintage to modern tones and always cut through the mix. In my studio it gets daily use. The only "negative" point of this amp is that it is obnoxiously loud. This amp is NOT bedroom friendly unless you want to tear a hole through your wall. Thankfully you can use the effects send to "attenuate" the volume down to something that will not rip your head off.Buy this thing!
