Stiletto ACE vs Mesa TC50

Post by thejay » Sat Dec 16, 2017 6:46 am

Finally got around to comparing these two amps
Current Mesa - Dual Rectifier, Lonestar Special, Mark V, TC50
Former Mesas - Roadster, ROV 50 Combo, Stiletto ACE, Mini Rect
Orange/Fender/Marshall/Vox Amps -- Gibson/Fender Guitars -- Strymon/Dunlop/Boss

Great video!

I went into it kinda rooting for the ace. But when the tc started in the differences were apparent. The tc just sounds more alive, more expressive. Tighter, cleaner, clearer. Like going from standard definition with the ace to high definition with the tc. The high end and the harmonics on the tc along with the tightness really makes it the winner here.

Mesa is refining the guitar amp tone and making it it stand out with crisp, clear, harmonically rich tone. I might have to try one out. Maybe Santa still has time to fix one up for me. :lol:

Cool vid!
Maybe next time I will play there together with my elder brother. But first I would like to learn more about Sounds great, huh?

I actually found another one of your videos looking for tones to compare a Stiletto Deuce with before I saw this one here! Didn't know you were on here also, that's cool!
