No worries my friend! Sometimes it feels nice getting rid of a lot of stuff to get something you really want. Here's what I sold to buy my Epi LP and my first tube amp (my current JCM 800) :

-vintage basketball cards from when I was little
-my old pets (snakes, tarantulas, a couple scorpions)
-stolen cigarettes
-grass
-old "Air Jordans"
-a bunch of my artwork
-some clothes to second-hand shops
-some old skateboard decks from when I got them for free
-my bike...and a stolen one.
-...and I worked three jobs (so basically, my soul)

I don't regret it one bit. :)

I will see what I can do Jason, I am glad nobody taped or video/'ed me at my Local blues jam, Got sandwiched with this semi decent female singer , Two mediocre tunes and a trainwreck outta Stormy Monday BLues But I do like the sound of this amp

I did a reverse kind of trade straight accross, believe it
or not, i traded a new Valvestate 30watt STRAIGHT accross
for my late 1980's Marshall JCM 800 100 watt tube head
that was at Guitar Center Hollywood, talk about being blown
away.:applause:

But really if you find an amp that sounds that good, its worth all
the amps you can trade.

i have the 900 and its really nothing id miss if i sold or tradded it. The JTM is cool but the Mesa would blow it away imo. so i think you got a good deal

enjoy it

Blues, well I did like that 900, was an early combo with EL 34's , The JTM seems to have had a similar circut to the Fender Hot Rod series, crank the gain and up went the mids and lows . This Mesa just blows both amps away with its added features , I am a blues and southern rocker

One of my best friends has a early MK11 with the wood cab, rattan front grill, EQ, I have played it fully cranked at both 60 and 100 watt settings, I swear that amp is pushing over 120 Watts wide open Yep I have played a few the probs I always had with many I tried were they either had a dead toneless clean channel. or couldnt clean up with any tone, this one does not suffer that problem , Clean as a Twin up to its full 50 watts or I get get a pushed" Fender blackface breakup " with a flick of the switch. I tried damn hard NOT to like this amp, Didnt work !:shock::shock::rofl::rofl::slash:
