    If their prices are in line with their Peavey clones, I'd be interested in picking one up, especially once they start hitting the used market. Like I said, the gap in pricing between Mesa and their current amps is enough to justify purchasing one.

    So Im gonna sell my 333XL and buy of these I think.
    What are the tonal differences between a mark and rectifier series? I WAS gonna save for a mark V... but then I saw this and that idea went *poof*

    They're pretty dramatic, and tend to polarize Mesa lovers. Marks have a very saturated/smooth preamp, while rectos are a little brighter and a lot punchier, and really come into their own once the power tubes start working a little. Petrucci is an excellent example of Mark tone in a metal context.

    I'd recommend trying them out before deciding between such a different flavor of Mesa.

    Im a huge fan of petruccis, hence the mark V gas.
    Off the top of your head, do you know of any bands who play with triple recs?
    I wish they were making the mark in a head as well as combo :mad:

    My local dealer sold me a new 333xl head for $800
    which I hope means I can get the trirec or magician for a fair bit less than the RRP

    According to the Bugera website they still haven't passes FCC compliance. At least in the US. Perhaps they're waiting for them to be available for all regions.

    I've played a B-52 AT-100 on a number of occassions and they weren't bad for the price. Quality was so-so but overall not too bad an amp.

    But $1179USD for the Bugera?...I dunno about that. I

    The MSRP and Street Price are very different. Chances are it'll be closer to $600 at stores, based on the other Bugera amps.

    According to that site, the 6263 should be $809.99, but in reality they are available from major retailers for just $549.95.

    If I got one I wouldn't be gigging with it either so it's winning me over so far.

    They haven't hit the market know, so I guess we'll see. :lol:

    They certainly didn't have a problem making Marshall and Peavey clones.
