Has anyone played through a Mesa Boogie M-Pulse 600? Can you give me your thoughs?
Sure. It's a popular head, very clean, yet warm. Very loud. Has that Mesa sound, though all their amps are different. What exactly are you looking for?
We play Classic rock. I want warmer than Eden ... not as warm as Ampeg.
Ken - It's time to put on your cape & fly into this thread!
I use an MPulse600 and can say with some certainty that it will offer a warmer sound than the Eden gear that I have used in provided backlines. It will growl some, but is a fairly clean animal as far as tone goes. If you get one, watch not to push the Mid control too hard, as it has a not so great effect on the overall tone.
I have not reguarly used Ampeg gear in ages .. like since about '78, so I could not really offer an up to date view. My memory says that the Mesa is going to be much cleaner and certainly will not have that distinctive Ampeg mids/upper mids driven tone. The Mesa MPulse has far more EQing, and feature switching options too ... EQ, Compression, Solo channel.
Ken Jung will probably be along soon to offer his more up to date, and detailed viewpoints on this topic too.
I've posted so much on the Mesa heads that I'm going to have to just suggest that the OP search and find them all if he's interested. I have a review thread on the 600 somewhere that lot's of guys posted on, so lot's of information there.
I have too much ink on that head out there at this point
