    Quick question:

    Currently I am playing through the Harley Benton G212 Vintage (2x12, V30) cab.
    I am using it for rehearsals, gigging and recording.
    I’ve been offered now a used Mesa OS for 650€ / 730$ (which is a pretty good price over here).
    Do you think it’s worth the upgrade?
    I assume the Mesa is better. But is it that much better?
    Anyone here who had both?

    Gonna answer the question myself today, as I just bought the Mesa.

    Wow...this is day and night.
    The Mesa absolutely crushes the HB.
    Sounds waaay bigger and has tons of low end.

    I really liked the HB, that's why I was unsure before.
    But right now my question seems a bit silly to me.

    I was afraid of the Mesa beeing too woofy and having a loose low end.
    That may be even true if I wasn't using a tubescreamer.
    But with the tubescreamer the low end is tight and powerful.
    Love it!

    Just picked up a 1997 Jackson RR3 that is getting ready to get overhauled. Pickups are getting swapped from the EMG HZ to some Seymour Duncans, probably the Nazgul/Sentient combo. Hoping to have this ready to rock in a few weeks, depending on work schedule and family schedule.

    I just got a Rode NT1 for a good price on eBay. That's my last purchase for a while. Time to start making music! :)

    I might buy the latest TSE x50, though. I've got an early one and it's awesome. Having said that, if the Thermionik demo is good, I'll buy that instead.

    And Sennheiser Momentum over ear V1. They were too good a price to resist.
    They sound great and are super comfortable.

    Roland GP 100 and Alesis Quadraverb. Trying to achieve a Devin Townsend esque wet tone using the GP 100 and my Line 6 Helix.

    For working (and listening in superb quality) at home.
    Sounds so good with my HD600s and Momentums :)

    They should be here next week. I'll let you know but chances are that they are similar to the T-bone RB100 I already own. In that case, they'll be too dark and boomy for the job. Not the poor man's R121 unfortunately.
    I bought them because they should be freaking cool on drums though.

    Scratch that, they sound great! Didn't realize they are much smaller than the RB100.
