Got the SRG lll+ back from Mesa. The amp sounds and feels fantastic. It’s not as bass heavy as the DRG’s. I had Mike B. install the R2 knob on the underside of the chassis so I could keep the Direct Out.
With an MC-90 speaker it’s just light enough to be a grab and combo.

How pronounced is the difference in low end? Is the tightness comparable?

I really like the SRG with a Telecaster. Definitely spankier than the DRG’s which is why I decided to send it in for the lll+ mod. It’s similar to an HR c+ switched to 60 watts. It’s tighter than the DRG’s but the new caps need to get broken in so it should loosen up a little bit. I have it in a combo with Mesa Russian 12ax7’s, 440’s and an MS-12 speaker. I didn’t get to spend a lot of time with it since I also just picked up another c+ and a D-180. And I’m usually out of town for work. The D-180 came with 4 Tungsram’s and 6 of the 415’s. When I get home Saturday I’m going to try the Tungsram’s and 415’s in the SRG.
