  • well, I returned the Mesa Royal Atlantic

    Very cool amp with some cool tones, but when I put it next to my Diamond Phantom, it sounded like a toy.  Plus the lack of dual master volumes is a pain.  Oh well, better luck next time Mesa

    Yeah, I think low-wattage amps can be great for some things, but if you're used to having the push of a good tube amp with more wattage and usually play music that just sounds right with that, it may be disappointing to directly compare.

      Isn't the Royal Atlantic like, 100W? If that's low-wattage, I'd hate to be rushtallica's roommate or neighbor :cat LOL:

        Sorry; I got the amp confused with the TransAtlantic 15 Watt amp.    http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/TA15/

        I think Mesa has had that problem with MANY of their amps  the .22 is an awesome little amp...but very hard to balance. I believe the DC's have the same thing. I know they have their special magic circuits, but come on, there has to be a way!

         

        Sorry it didn't work out for ya man. But like food (and beer :heart:  ) there are many flavors and you need to to have a taste to know if you really like it, not just take someone's word for it.
