    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.

    Thanks,

    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?
