Finally got my hands on a proper amp rig. Ive been lusting after a 5150 for as long as I can remember but due to having small children in the house Ive never been able to justify having something that huge in my studio. I finally bit the bullet on the 50w version of the 5150ii and my god is it awesome. Up until now I have been using my Axefx II to jam/record/practice etc and although I love it I was definitely missing having an amp in the room. It just reacts in such a different way. Being a Colin Richardson and Andy Sneap fan, I figured I had to get a Recto cab to go with it too. Its taken me a bit to get it dialed in the way I like, but I threw a maxon 808 and a decimator on there to tighten things up and it sounds massive now. My only complaint would be I didn't realize how loud this thing can actually get. It goes from manageable volume at 0.4 (of 10!) to literally scaring the neighbours dog four doors down when the knob is at 1. Its also opened up a lot of doors to use with the axefx from using just the amp with a cab sim (need a load box eventually) or even running other power amp sims through the Mesa Cab. Anyway here is some crappy iPhone pics, Im off to go shake the house of its supports.
