  1. Question=I play out 2-4 times a month and for the most part my rig has ample clean volume but some places I'm left feeling like i wish I bought a head with much more wattage for head room and a cleaner sound. I use an active Warwick corvette direct to my Mesa M-pulse 360 I have a power cond. and a tuner but for the most part it goes stait into an svt610 4 ohm.The head is a little underpowered for this cab me thinks. I love the sound of my amp but I'm really throwing the idea aroud of getting a 750x or a b4r something in that range I know I should have got the m-pulse 600 but I'm so #$%@#$% impulsive I bought what was at my shop at the time.
    I just think I gotta really push her too hard to get the crystal clear punch I NEED!She distorts when the master is cranked and I put the pre anywhere past 3!Got any sug.??

    You can check us out at WWW.EVOLVEROCKS.com some mp3s there. Thanks for any feedback!
  2. Easy, buy a powerful power amp and use the 1/4" line out/preamp out. Then you won't have to get rid of your Mesa.

    You should be able to sell a Boogie amp quickly enough as long as you price it fairly for both yourself and the buyer.
    Remember;Boogie doesn't allow it's dealers to discount their gear.As long as you're selling your amp somewhere below it's actual cost,somebody will take it off your hands eventually.Boogies are in THAT high of a demand.

    PA is the way to go. Get a QSC power light and use your existing head as a pre.

    Good luck

    second that. buy a qsc plx power amp. qsc1602 should do. about $600. check with lord valve for pricing.

    you can use the mesa for a preamp and replace it with a 'real' preamp later, or just keep the mesa if you don't need your full power.
