Ok, I have spotted a used Mesa Strategy 400 stereo power amp which is all valve of course. I rekon I would be able to get it for around 500$. Firstly, is this a good price? Obviously I would have to get it shipped over here which would be a pain, anyone who can give me the weight of this amp so I can see what it is likely to cost. Now I've always fancied something a little more tubey and was wondering if this would be a good foundation. I could easily run the fx loop from the HA3500 I own now into the Strategy. Now what I want to know is if that on it's own would add some warmth and tubey goodness to the sound. The other idea would be to do that for a while then when I have adequate funds, buy an ampeg svp-pro and hook those two beauties up . My brother has contacts in America who could handle the shipping etc but I simply want to know if this would be worth my while. I know a 410tp wouldn't do it justice probably but I have a cab aquisation plan set for some point in the future too. Your opinions please!
