    Essentially, shops can now buy direct from Mesa like they do in the USA instead of going through a distributor, and can pass along the savings. And the savings can be quite significant, even close to a grand in some cases!

    Nice! If only they'd do the same for Fractal in Europe.

    That means a Duel Rectifier doesn't cost substantially more than a Fortin Cali anymore here :eek:

    Mesas were always so ridiculously priced here. Quite a bit more than several "boutique" amps.

    A significant price drop which is cool, but I mean it seems a little late. Software, kemper, axe fx will get you there at a cheaper price.

    I know Mesa is still Mesa, and if you're looking for that great. There's just so many options out there now. Maybe the Mesa used market will drop down here now as well though.

    Andertons just announced this. There's no more middle man in between so theres going to be some significant savings.

    One example they gave is the Fillmore originally being 2300 pounds, now going to be around 1700.

    So saving on a Recto stack is about 1350gbp, or about $1351.

    Now only if this service was available to Australia as well, then we could get rid of some of our predatory distrubutors

    Middleman distributors everywhere suck. An Axe FX III here is like $5000.

    IMO the Lonestar series is better than either.

    I'm not a huge Mesa fan but really happy that the prices are more reasonable now. Of course still expensive but more in line with other boutique US brands.

    Come to think of it I was seeing the Mesa Rectifiers around the current price about 4 years back and then suddenly they shot up in price to £2899 and then £3100. Maybe it was the latest stock they had and trying to get rid of it before bringing in th new stock with the new pricing. Anyway £2349 is more attainable than £2900 or £3000 so I can't complain. As mentioned before no dent in the cab prices though. I mean the 4x12 Mesa OS Recto cab I had was great but not £1200 great lol.

    The Marshall cabs with V30s in them are exactly half that price. So yeh still kinda ridiculous.
