Brian’s Mesa-N5X comparison

Clip order: Mesa lead – N5X lead – Mesa chords – N5X chords


“To illustrate my previous email, here is a quick rough and ready Mesa/N5X/Mesa/N5X sound file. Funnily enough I really like the chord sounds from the N5X, actually prefer that to my Mesa, but the solo sound of the N5X actually makes me play differently as it’s not sustaining the notes the same. Closest I can get is with the tone circuit bypassed, boost on high (treble), gain full up, master around 6.


“Now, if I could get both sounds from one amp, then we would be talking!”
