    My band is soon to start on a full U.S. tour and I need a back up head. I primarily use an Ampeg SVT 5-Pro, but the band is fully sponsored by Mesa, so I need to pick a head from the Mesa line. My problem is that I have absolutely NO experience with Mesa heads, so I was wondering which of their bass heads is the absolute meanest and most powerful? The cost is obviously not an issue. (The closest one that can compare to an Amped SVT 5 Pro)

    I use an M-Pulse 600 and it is awesome. Great tone control and parametric EQ. I have not tried the Mesa Big Blocks, but I understand that they are the more powerful, if less EQ-centric, version of the M-Pulse.

    400 plus all tube jobbie. If Mesa are sponsering they can keep you supplied with tubes also.
