    I just ordered one for myself. I don't think they are overpriced, but I guess that depends on your budget. There's a million Walkabout threads here - try a search.

    Welcome to TB, by the way.
  3. The WalkAbout is worth every bit... and then some. Pinch pennies someplace else. I doubt you'll ever regret it.

    A friend let me borrow his for a few days. I can attest that this head has a very musical tone. It's got the tube-style warmth and fat bottom, and is punchy with good headroom. The extensive EQ section allows for dialing any desired amount of lows, mids or highs. Compact size is light weight and convenient. I posted details in a previous thread on this. If you do a search will find alot of comments from others as well. :bassist:

    Actually Mesa products are very resonably priced compaired to other high end amps (Aguilar, EA, Eden...).
    I've never played through the Walkabout but I do own a M-Pulse 600. Excellent quality/workmanship and sound! :bassist:

    There is none... Sorry. :ninja:
  8. IMO there is NO comparison between the Walkabout and the
    SWR. The Walkabout beats the SWR hands down in every category.

    I've loved every Mesa product i've ever played through, just too expensive for me. I swear to god someday i will have a 400+ and a M-Pulse 600. Best. Amps. Ever.
