I finally got the Mesa 400+ that I purchased off of ebay. It was an great buy. I got it for $705.00 with the shock mount rack. It is in better shape than I ever expected.It has all the tone and volume I will ever need. It is awesome. The push pull knobs are my favorite thing about it. I have only had the chance to play it a few hours. I would do a comparison between it and my Ampeg B2R but the Solid State Ampeg isnt even in the same league. I am very happy with it. I will tell you more after I get it with a Guitar and drums later in the week.
