    I have a Mesa Scout 1-12 combo and the 1-12 extension cab. It is a great sounding and portable setup. I never would have tried Mesa had it not been for TB as I had been an Ampeg guy for years. I have read so much here about Aguilar and Epifani but have never played thru either. How do they compare in sound, tone, punch etc with Mesa? Thanks.

    I'm currently looking at cabs. I haven't tried an epifini but I've tried an Aguilar GS 112 and a Mesa 1x15. I only got a short time with the 112 but from what I heard I was really unimpressed. I liked the mesa much better. I can't say anything for epifini though.

    after you've gone Epi or Aggie, you'll never look at your mesa the same again. they both make the mesa seem 2 dimensional and cardboard like.
