I'm shopping for, among other things, a head and compressor to go with my new Stingray5. (The ole Nemesis 210 combo just doesn't do this bass justice!) I figure that I can better justify an expensive head like the MESA/Boogie M-Pulse 360 or M-Pulse 600 if the built-in compressor is truly decent and useable, which is not the case with a lot of built-in compressors. If the M-Pulse compressor is really good, I obviously wouldn't have to spend extra on a separate compressor. Anybody have experience with this amp's compressor? One other thing on the subject of M-Pulse amps (and the smaller Walkabout): My understanding is that the M-Pulse amps and Walkabout lean toward the fatter, beefier side of the tone spectrum, sort of like Eden or Ampeg. Is that correct? I don't care for the super-clean hi-fi sound like SWR and EA are known for. (No offense to SWR and EA fans.) Can you get a fat, beefy sound out of these MESA heads, or should I look elsewhere?
