I don't understand how people are selling used MKV for 1800 though I'm sure I could get a dealer to go to that price no problem.


Not very likely, Mesa strictly enforces the standard pricing...and dealers will lose their licenses if they discount w/o Mesa's approval.

In Canada, these types of low margin items tend to fluctuate in response to changes in the US/CDN dollar, and, this is closely related to gas prices. The US is the largest importer of Canadian fuel. When the price or demand of fuel goes up, the CDN dollar gains against the US dollar.

High volume MB dealers will cut deals based on the strength of the dollar, if they get the amp for $100 cheaper, they will often pass this down to the purchaser, if you are savvy enough to ask for it.

This tends to make me think the pro-net pricing is tightly tied into the wholesale price of these amps. If there were large margins on these amps, you would see the pricing at the retail level reflect that fact regardless of the agreements made with the manufacturer. Mesa Boogie could never drop a company like Long and McQuade as a dealer, they represent a large number of units every year.

I don't really have a problem with a company that does this, as long as it's to sustain the production of a quality piece of equipment like a boogie.

Yep... it's pretty damned important to many of us! :mrgreen:

I believe mesa only has two tiers of artists, the first of course are the big acts that get them for free. The second Tier I believe is what every other endorsed member gets, which around 40% off list price, one of my friends is endorsed by mesa and that is what he pays.

It is possible there is one more tier that would get a Mark V for $800, but if there is then only a minimal amount of mesa artists fall into that tier.

I know people that work at a mesa authorized store also get the 30% to 40% off, however they can only buy one a year, where the artists can buy as many as they want.

The nice thing about either being an endorsed artist or working at a store and getting this discount is, you also get the life time warrenty.

Hey y'all - I new to this board, doing some research, so forgive me if this has been answered elsewhere.

I'm curious if there are any dealers that offer Mesa Boogie amps below full retail. There are 4 Guitar Center stores in my area (Seattle), but only a few carry Mesa amps in stock and seem intent on selling at full retail price. Given our high sales tax, buying from an out of state dealer would be slightly less expensive, even at full retail price and shipping cost.

Hi Dave,

Go on a road trip to Oregon and find a nice music store (Apple Music Row in Portland comes to mind). I'm not sure if they will bargin with you but you'll pay zero sales tax.

It was the guy's first post, and it was totally off-topic. To be honest, I don't even know what he was talking about. I'd say it's pretty obvious he's a spammer. :)
