    I have developed a Mesa addiction problem.

    First came the Mini Rectifier Twenty Five

    Then the 212 Boogie F-100 showed up in a big way.

    And I have been eyeing a minimally used Mesa Express 5 25 Plus for over a week a a very good price, with the manual unopened, foot switch, and cover. Yesterday, I picked it up. The guy also had a similar sized Rectoverb 25 that he decided to keep.

    I can’t help myself, I like them all.

    The new combo is an attempt to downsize to just this one. They are all awesome in their own ways. It will take me considerable time to sort this one out.

    Down to two keepers. The Mini Rectifier got sold today.
    So the 5 25 plus is taking its’ place. I prefer the all in one combo, built in spring reverb, preset/slider EQ option, and wider variety of cleans.

    I spent the last few days doing A/B trials against my Vibro Champ and Princeton Reverb Reissue. As sweet as those Fender amps are, I have found the settings on the Mesa to cover the sounds that I usually have them set at. The Vibro Champ doesn’t take up much space and is very light in weight, so it will likely earn its keep. The Princeton is very quick and easy to set the classic tone it does so well.
    Who knows, they might get sold someday.

    The 212 Mesa F-100 is definitely not going anywhere. It is too heavy to move, and has the most rewarding tones, even at home volumes.

    Pretty sure this is a "cult" rather than a "club." :D

    Can i join? Rectoverb 25 and an avatar can i picked up used for a great deal. I’ve been wanting a Mesa amp since i started playing 15 years ago, but I either didn’t have the cash or the need. This suits my needs perfectly, and it’s loud as hell considering the compact size.

    The cab was originally going to be a temporary solution, but it sounds great and I have no complaints!

    GREAT cleans; excellent 'Mesa' crunch and does a darn good 'Marshall' emulation too! LOVE this amp!

    Haha you're not wrong; I've been so happy playing my Fillmore 50 recently. You can call me a real Mesa-head now, I used to have an F30, currently rocking a Subway Rocket 20 combo, as well as a Recto-verb 25 Head on top of the Fillmore. Looking forward to owning a Mk V one day.

    I've been reading about the Fillmore series! Sounds like a terrific amp- would love to hear one in person someday. No new amps or major gear for me for a long while- I've violated my new year's edict by buying my new-to-me Mesa...although as they say "What a way to go..." LOL!

    Thanks for sharing and best wishes with that amp!!

    My bought new 1981 Mark II-B. Still has its original tubes. I have all of the original documentation scanned too. Once I am able to post links (I'm new) I can share those.
