When paired with a nice reverb and a JBL K120 it is tasty indeed. I love Mesa equipment, and for Jerry tone it's get's you very close. The thing I really like is that you get your Jerry on, but can instantly throw some grit and preamp overdrive at the tone and play almost anything else in a semi or non-Dead band. Very versitile pro.
Does it have reverb? Can't remember.
That's what I'm looking for.. Versatility. I have the SMS > MC50 > JBLK120 and I get Jerry tone easily. Also the SMS is about the nicest cleanest tone I could ask for. I was hoping to add some tone variation with the mesa and wondered if it sounded alright via the MC50. I have a separate 1x12 with a Celestion V30 that I thought might mingle well with the Mesa>MC50..
Anyway, just wondered if anyone had any insight. I haven't pulled the trigger on the Mesa Pre yet.. not too pricey but wondered if there was any input nonetheless.
