    I'm seriously considering purchasing a Mesa M-Pulse 600 along with their Roadready 1000 (4X10 + 1 15) Base Cabinets. I also like the Ampeg Pro series stuff as well. Any body have any actual experience with these products? Ampeg seems to be much better represented by a dealer network and less costly. :meh:

    Thanx

    I own a mesa/boogie Mpulse 600 and let me tell you that mesa comination woul be outright deadly. Ampeg is for more of a vintage tone, and to be outright not nearly as versatile as the Mpulse 600 is, imho.

    I love my mesa hybrid amp

    FWIW

    I own the Mpulse 600 and I did own an SVT-6PRO.

    Direct out - eq flat - couldn't tell the difference.

    through various cabs I preferred the Mesa sound so I kept it and sold the SVT6.

    I've used Ampeg SVT-4 with Ampeg 4x10 and Ampeg 2x15. Around that time, I played through an M-Pulse 600 with a Powerhouse 1000 and thought the tone was superior- more hi-fi, which suited the style of music (progressive metal).

    I currently used a Mesa Bass 400 through Powerhouse cabinets and love the tone. Powerhouse cabs are a little sharper and punchier than Ampeg cabinets.

    Both brands are great. Mesa stuff is more expensive generally, but once in a while you can find nearly new stuff on ebay for a good price.
