    Congrars on the R100, Coldie! Take a pic and post it here for a free Club membership!

    And it already has an Eminence speaker in it! For those who think it needs improving, though, I always recommend putting a sock, or two, in the ports before doing anything drastic. The 100 doesn't come with any internal acoustic lining, like the 200 & 500 have. So, if the socks in the ports sound good to you, then adding a bit of fiber lining inside, on about 3 walls, might be the way to go.

    Just beware that any permanent modifications, no matter how small, may void the 2-year manufacturer's warranty.

    Actually, I’m not surprised. From what I hear (and it’s hearsay only, no facts to back it up), Mesa can be a bit persnickety about their products. Where as some companies may bend the truth regarding specs, I feel Mesa keeps them close to the chest.

    I don't know what being 'persnickety' is but 'playing it close to your chest' around here means keeping things hidden or out of sight. The Mesa website lists so specs for their current products you need a science degree to make head of tail of them. :wideyed:
    You might like to reappraise your opinion before AgedHorse kicks down our club door!!

    Unless I can’t read, no cab specs here. And, persnickety means fussy, btw. Just sayin’. Likewise, I rarely change my opinion to suit someone else.

    Breaking in the new 800HD head tonight. So far sounds awesome. Like my Rumble 500 on steroids!

    I Played Porchfest today!

    Keeping it light and lean, I took my Rumble 25. Landed on Volume @ 2:00, EQ @ 1/11/12. Sounded great! Here she is with our massive PA- a single powered 12” :D

    The best kind of "exposure" gig! Super easy load-in and load-out! :thumbsup::bassist:

    Someone didn't take a shotgun to your Porchfest sign, did they?

    We were playing bluegrass, but no shotguns, nor jugs of moonshine….

    How do you guys feel about running a preamp pedal through the return jack (without the send jack) on the effects loop? Do you feel like you lose some of the rumble's magic, or can you still get a good clean rumble tone? In other words what do you think happens to the rumble's tone coloring? Oh, and is the delta comp still in play when you do this?
