I've decided that I love combo amps, and that a need a bit more juice than my Fender Bassman TV-12 provides. My current ensemble is a three-piece that writes and plays shredfunk rockstrumentals (couple Jeff Beck covers as well), some live audio for which may be found here: Roadstrut Manor Given what we do, and given that I've gone all in on EBMM Stingray 5s (fretted and fretless) for my sound, I'm leaning toward the Mesa M3 Combo, as I once owned the M6 Fathom head and that huge, fast sledgehammer tone would kill. And yet, I think the tone from my TV-12 is wonderful and quite musical, and is something I could definitely live with in a 350-watt package that offers enhanced bump. Hence my dilemma. And for the next few years, at least, a 60-70 lb combo with wheels shouldn't be too much for me to handle. WWTBD? For those who have played both, two questions: a) which gets louder, and b) which can do a more convincing sonic impersonation of the other?
