    Any thoughts? There's one at a local shop that is pretty tempting. They also have the Traynor YBA200 setup for about $100 more (completely different rigs I know). The Mesa seems like it could be ideal, very small (realativly), a good bit of tube power, etc.

    Does anyone own one? How have you used it? Any thoughts? Good points? Bad things? Etc.

    Haven't played one but if it's anything like a M-Pulse in tone range..uh...I believe the word I'd use is "sexy" :)
  3. When it comes to sound the Buster outperforms the YBA by miles, difference like day and night.
    But check the tubes often; I had several local gigs where I used this combo, and even though I'm a pretty darn cautious driver, some tubes came loose, or let your tech install some beter security to hold the tubes in place.

    I had a Buster Bass 200 head (not the 210 combo) and it was awesome. TONS of power. When I did run it through a 210, it sounded good. And it looks hot!!!

    Which one is it? The straight front or the wedge?
