Great amp. You ever thought about checking bugeras new amps? I believe its a V series or something. Search bugera V55, they make smaller ones than that I think but thats the series their in. They look worth something.
When I lived in Michigan, we had 6 1/2 acres and sat 750 feet back off the road. My friend's house was even further out in the sticks, as that was farm country. Our horses could have cared less about the noise, and as long as our parents weren't home we could crank it all we wanted. Now is a different story.
Of course, at the time I was using a 10W Ampeg amp so it wasn't that big of a deal, though our lead guitarist had a half stack of some sort. At the time I wasn't really into amps, and couldn't afford it if I was. A Fender Twin Reverb was what I considered the ultimate amp. At the time I had never heard of Mesa or Orange.
I haven't looked at the Bugera amps so far. After listening to Mesa, Marshall and Orange it has been hard to look elsewhere, especially after owning the Roadster. But you never know for the future. Right now the Mesa ElectraDyne and Mark V are tugging at me pretty hard, along with the JVM 410 and Orange Rocker 30 / Rockerverb 50. Even that Vox AC30 makes me sit up and take notice. Not having the money right now, I guess it really doesn't matter. However I may just give the Bugera amps a listen. Of course, all the low wattage amps have made more sense to me lately since I'm not exactly playing big venues requiring a 100W head full stack setup.
