While this video was interesting, I kept on hoping there'd be some actual playing on it. You know, a demo? Kind of? I mean, there were 2 of the amps right there, a guitar right there, one of the best guitarists in the world right there, and all that happens is a bunch of talking. Couldn't he have played even a few notes?

Maybe this amp is a fake! :wink:

I am personally safe in my manhood that I don't need another guitarist name on a reissue :D

The Mark IIc+ is the finest amp that Mesa ever put out in my little world. I have used the suckers for almost 22 years, I just keep fixin' em when they break ($$$$). I'd be all for a reissue and you can put Grace Potter's name on it for all I care. Actually I do care, don't put her name on it..... :wink:

I suspect that the majority of us aren't in the correct demographic for this amp. I think it's cool, but not really something I'd get much use out of.

Somewhere on planet earth there's a Ricky Martin fan that's going bonkers...

Demographics aside, I'll keep my Mark 2C+ Coli.

Thanks!
I don't get it. Carlos Santana endorses said amp and the guitarists who demo the amp sound as close to Santana as Foghorn Leghorn. I am at a loss. I'd like to buy a musical vowel here....

The clips are meant to show the versatility of the amp - and we do plan on adding a clip that shows the "singing sustain", which, admittedly, the current "sustaining lead" clip did not capture. Thanks!

Tonally it's VERY good indeed but it needs cranking up more. Drive or volume, either one. That'd give it the sustain we want and need.
