Good Morning Mr. BarefootDave,
I actually sold the Mesa. The first CL find was the MC2100. 65 lbs. $300.00 Then I found the road case. As I kept thinking about putting the whole thing together, I began to see that that 2100 was more than I needed. I bought the Mesa, and loved
the tone. With the SMS it could do a broad sweep to Jerry era's. The thing about the McIntosh, is that it can be turned down. That Mesa 20/20 was loud on 1. I love Mesa gear, and I rather wish I'd kept it. I did have a brief thought of backing up the Mc amp with the Mesa.
So I bit the bullet and bought the MC250. It made the rack "almost" managable with one person. I have carried it down stairs, and loaded it in the buggy...but damn...even with the 35lb Mc250 it's heavy.
There is likely another rebuild in the cards. This time, the MC250 & the SMS will go in a small road case. The pedals & GCX will go in a custom wood thingy.
I'm really into the '76-'78 era, so I doubt I've seen my last Mesa power section. To cut to the chase...Mesa is a great power choice (and pre for that matter.) I had a Mark I with a JBL K120. It was very '76 Jerry, but loud...like pet killing loud.
But when I get them Stadium/Festival gigs...watch out...watch out.
