I wouldn't say that. I've been reading on it for about a month. I think it depends what your looking for. I was considering the LSS but comments seem to state that the express has a better gain, more versatility towards solos, where the LSS is more blues oriented. Not metal type gain, but strong enough for rock.

Pete, I agree. I found out that my closest GC (1 hr.) wont be getting the Expresses for a while. They have a wood trimmed LSS in stock......My GAS has led me to set up an a/b of the LSS and F-30 for Friday am. While I believe the Express would meet my needs, it is going to be hard to wait! Unless the LSS is less impressive than I have heard. Jeff

Someone from the Mesa forum recorded some heavy clips he made :thu:
The 3rd one (top) is tight; me likey :thu:
Can't wait for the leads and cleans though.

I wouldn't have a need for that type of sound, but it sounds like you need some post eq to make it sound like a Recto. It was good of the guy to detail how he recorded each version.
I'm also looking forward to clean and solo sounds

My very short and unscientific experience with the LSS left me a little underwhelmed. I recall the clean being nice, but the gain channel wasn't what I was looking for - as I said in a previous post - If I'm going to buy an amp, and rely on it for my tones, I want a clear Fender-like clean channel, a nice Marshall type crunch channel, and a smooth Boogie (classic) Lead channel - otherwise I'm better off with a clean amp and some pedals or mult-effects unit. But I'm an old fart - others are looking for a Recto scooped sound - this isn't important to me.
Bring your own guitar when you a/b the amps. When I played the F-30 with my Carvin Holdsworth guitar, I fell in love. For an instant, I wanted to sell all my stuff and just buy that.
I'm actually quite happy with my Yamaha DG-80, except for the clean models. It maybe that I have to look at swapping out the speaker, but that's a story for another day...

Try the Lonestar special.:thu:

Curses!!! I tried a Lonestar Special yesterday - it was so organic sounding, it made the Express sound absolutely stiff!!! I couldn't get the exact sound I was looking for on the Drive channel, but then I only played with it for about 20 minutes - but boy that amp had a real organic / 3d quality to it.
AND - I think every multi-channel amp should have the multi-wattage option on each channel - that is one of the best ideas I've seen in years!
