So ever since I got the Egnater, I've been dissatisfied with the sound of my Marshall in a box into my Fender. It just sounds flat in comparison. So I decided that instead of chasing the elusive marshall tone from a pedal, I'd be better off with something different. So I ordered this.

If all goes well, I should be able to drop my klone and my MIAB from my box. Not really feeling the EP booster as much either, so I think my Timmy will take its rightful spot as my only other OD pedal.

I'm excited. I played a Bogner blue last week and while it sounded good, max gain was a bit disappointing. Plus, even with the boost level and gain all the way off, it was a huge gain and volume jump. Hopefully the Mesa will sound at least as good as the Bogner and get rid of the functional issues that I have with it. It should be here Thursday, I'll put up a full review asap.

Normally I'd be aghast at not having a marshall type pedal on my board - I've had something in that vein on my board for the last few years. But now that I have an amp that does the Marshall thing better than any Marshall I've played, I can just use that amp when I'm feeling that tone. Now I may lack a Marshall when I play my Fender, but I'm fine with that. I've always liked Boogie amps, and if this thing sounds at all like a Mark/Lonestar amp, I'll be very happy.

An Egnater is a Marshall. As far as I can tell, Marshall hasn't made a Marshall since the 1970's.

I'm in a similar boat. I have a Wallace BKW45 that does Marshall better than my Marshall JCM900 SL-X. When I surfed the stores looking for a modern Marshall I could gig with, the Vox Valvestate 120 did Marshall better than any EL-34 tube-based Marshall on the floor. SansAmp and Carl Martin do Marshall better than Marshall these days, IME.

Everyone should be armed ...until nobody has guns.

Love that pedal. I was thinking of picking one up but my Source Audio Classic Distortion does a Marshall and a Boogie fairly well.

It was delivered today... but I'm at work for another 4+ hours. Ugh. I should get a bit of time with it tomorrow, but I'm really looking forward to Tuesday. I get to jam with some friends of mine (we recorded this early this year, they're pretty good). I'll get to give the Flux Five a really good work out and I'll know for sure if it's right for my rig.

In other news, we (me and the guys I'm jamming with) decided to write and record an album. We're all pretty busy so it won't be done anytime soon, but I'm looking forward to it. My drummer said he has a keyboard player that really wants to jam with us, which might be awesome. I've never played with a great keyboard player before, and I'm excited to see what he could contribute to our jams and if he's interested, to our future compositions.

Well technically I'm selling a few pedals if I keep the mesa, so I won't have spent any of my income on it. Technically.

Oh and it's rad by the way. The EQ is SOUPER RAD STUFFZ. I can't wait to jam with it. Hopefully we'll be recording those jams so I will hopefully maybe have clips.
