    I was looking at buying a used ( but retubed) Mesa Boogie Bass Buster 210 combo amp, and I was just wondering if you guys had any thoughts, regarding how they sound, how much I should pay and such, as I will have little or no oppurtunity to test it out... thanks....

    I have the 1X15 combo. The original Mesa tubes were too mid-centric for me and I retubed using JJs from Eurotubes. It sounds MUCH better. I like mine much better with a 2X10 as well as the 1X15 and at medium volumes. YMMV. I paid $650 for mine and its in good shape. I have too many tube amps now and am thinking of moving it to make room for an Aggie AG 500 SC.

    I'm glad to hear this...I've just ordered a set of matched/balanced JJ 12AX7S's from Bob for my 400+. Next will be the forest of 6L6's from him.
