Hey guys, so I've been using a Mesa tremoverb for the last couple of months and I really like what I'm getting from it. I'm having some issues though. I made a thread on here about the orange channel cutting out, I called my local amp shop and they said it would probably be a +/- $200 to take care of it. However, today I was playing it and the whole amp went dead, a pop and then nothing. At this point I'm sitting here with a couple of options and I'm not sure which way to go.. Problem 1, I only paid $650 for the amp, it was a KILLER deal so I jumped on it. The good news is that I bought it through guitar center so I can return it if need be. So, the options I see them are 1. I can take this to the amp shop and for $65 they'll tell me what's wrong, could be $50 or $500. 2, return this amp to the store and purchase a newer 3 channel dual/triple. 3. I can try to buy another tremoverb. Basically, with the repair it's an unknown, it could take anything to repair it, could be cheap, could be expensive. No matter what I am out at least $65, if it costs $500 to repair and I decide not to repair it I'm still out the $65. If I return it, which is what I'm thinking I would have $650 to spend and would need to add +/- $300 to replace it which could be more or less than the cost to repair the one I have. My main thing is this, if it's going to be a big fix I would rather not loose the $65 to find out I don't want to pay for the repairs. If I take it back and buy another amp my concern is going from the 2 channel tremoverb to a 3 channel dual/triple. I've never played a 3 channel and I have heard that they're fizzy, harsh, and terrible at lower volume.. All of the things the tremoverb isn't. So, I would like opinions on which way you would go if it was you? Would you bother with the estimate on the repair or just go with a different amp? For anyone who has played a 2 channel AND a 3 channel what were the differences? Would I be disappointed going from a 2 to a 3? For anyone who plays a 3 channel, would you say it's fizzy? How does it handle at low volume? Like a little louder than TV volume? Thanks for any help or opinions. I know you guys can't tell me what to do, just wondering how people who may have more experience would handle the situation. Thank you.
