    Here (Poland) DR's and TR's are relatively inexpensive and popular, because there is a metric ****************ton of them on the used market (since EVERYONE has to own a DR at one point, and most people discover that's not really the sound they are looking for)



    other mesa amps are quite expensive and rare, that's true.



    diezels are super rare and super expensive

      wooden (custom mesa) mark IV: starts from 1900-2000

      F-serie: 800



      As an exception, there was a TA-15 for cheap in my area (650), but today I had offer for 900. Most probably the same amp, sold again by someone else.




      Bear in mind that I live in greece where the economy almost forces so low prices and these are the lowest ones of these examples. For example somebody sells a triple rec or a herbert for about 1700 to 2000 euros for almost ...2 years and still hasn't sold it. Whereas a soldano avenger for 1000 was something that almost went in a day! Still, some of these prices were 2 years ago and others were from ebay.co.uk from when you actually could get good deals.



      I wanted to show that, mesa isn't so scarce and that if you wait deals can be found.



      Run of the mill amps are euro mass produced amps like marshalls (DSLs from 300!), some jubilee combos that went for 650 for example, a plexi 100 watter from the 70's that a friend of mine got for 650 and was recapped from marshall and with a PPIMV, stupid cheap laney aors, gh etc.



      And check this site for brunetti and dvmark!



      It is in italian but still

      "is this tone obtainable using the HD500 or Axe Fx? Overall, for convenience and volume control, should I buy the Axe Fx over actual tube amps? I don't plan on playing loud; just playing at home and recording on my Mac. Thanks man, you are awesome!


      short answer: no...

      long answer: no way..."

          Diezel's are around 4 grand here, at least the Hagan and VH4 (I'd assume the Herbert too) are. I've seen Herberts selling for around 3 grand used. That's entirely too many moneys.
