I sold off my last power amp a while back when I got back into the combos. Thinking about pulling out some of the rack gear again. Any suggestions on a power amp. No need for earth shattering power. Maybe even a SS amp would do the job.

power amp

Another vote for the Mesa 50/50.

Huge fat sound. Runs nice and cool. 2 rack spaces. I used one for about 10years. Never once failed. Replaced the tubes once in 10 years. Sold it last year.

They seem to bring about $500-600 used.

The Classic 50/50 is a Peavey if I'm not mistaken.


I had one. It wasn't bad.

Yeah, sorry, I meant the "classic" Mesa 50/50, not the newer "recto" 2:50. Didn't know Peavey made one.

I'm looking for a Mesa Boogie Strategy 400 or 500 power amp. Please PM if you have one to sell. How many posts does one need to post in the buy/sell area?

I hope this post is OK as its at least on topic

+1 - I'm actually using a 2:90 and it's insanely loud, I always use it on "half dive" and I'm seriously thinking on getting a 50/50.

I just love Mesa but Peavey is a serious contender. Also cheaper.
