The dual is nice, but my favorite amps would be the Mesa Heartbreaker, or the Mesa Mark 3's

All I'm really interested in doing is banging out power chords. I don't need the overdriven clarity of a Mark series amp.

The Heartbreaker is a nice amp, the Maverick came out the same year and looked very similar but was a lower wattage amp, its only 35watts. The heartbreaker is 100 watts. The Maverick was not as much of a Hi Gain, it was sold as more of a blues amp. Since I never play out the 35 watts is already super loud, the heartbreaker would be just too much for my small home studio, now if I played out different story.

The Heartbreaker is actually switchable 60watt/100watt. It has a nice warm tone to it. My guitarist has both the Heartbreaker, and the Triple Rec. Between the two.....I'd pick the Heartbreaker. I've tried to buy it from him, but he won't sell it. Probably for the best though considering I may be tempted to buy a PRS custom 22 to go with it.....

Been playing on and (mostly) off for 40 years (Yes they did have guitars back then). My skills reached a peak at college (go figure) and have slowly disappeared since then. Luckily I am more skillful on a bike than on my guitar.

ExLaverda, Great collection! Love the Explorers! Good to know someone in the Amp and Guitar repair business. I have been using Neal Sargent for a few years for guitar setup and repair but dont really know anyone that does amps.

I do my own set up and repairs, learned while I was on the road. I don't fool with amps though. too complicated. Matter of fact, I need to replace the volume pot on the Carvin 6 string bass. as of now, it is an on-off pot,lol.

I have a Schecter Hot Rod '39 With the flame inlayed fretboard that I used for the stand on the sign that I use for displaying my street tracker. They are nice guitars and this one is still completely functional and has not been damaged in any way, really makes for a cool looking sign.
