Mesa 4x12 Should I?

I just sold my mesa 2x12 and can buy a 4x12 for $500 to use with my 6505+. My other options are to save a little more and maybe get a VHT fatbottom,Splawn,Bogner.

The Mesa 4x12" is pretty much the industry standard at this point. The other brands you mentioned might have more "wow" factor because of the name plates but they're not really "better".

Get the Mesa.

I probably will i wish it was straight though but it has the tan grill cloth which i like. I hear the haters say the Oversized cab's lowend is to loose and sloppy.

Not true, imo. its called the BASS control...turn it down.

I have a straight-front Mesa Stiletto 4x12 and I love it. And FYI, the smaller dimensions of the stiletto cabs do give it a more focused sound. Ive owned a recto cab in the past as well.

Does the stiletto really deliver a tighter low end tone?

I've played both, I now own 2 Recto cabs. Mesa or VHT heads, neither get sloppy or too bassy with these things. An overdrive will tighten it up even more. and for that price with a tan grill id go for it

You can't go wrong with a Mesa oversized and a 5150/6505. Great combo, do it!

I had a 6505+ and oversized recto, definitely not sloppy.

My cab sounds so big and full, it actually makes a lot of other cabs sound weak. They can be made more focussed using the amp, and it also means on amps like Road Kings or roadsters, you can turn the bass down giving a clearer sound without sounding thin or weak.

Got questions about anything I've said, done or do? How about pickups, tech, music production or just anything! Check here and ask away!
