This is one of my favourite amps I have owned yet. Each channel is amazing and nails all the wonderful Boogie sounds and more. When I say 'Boogie' I'm talking the great smooth and dark distortion sounds of the Mark and Dual Rectifier amps. However, the amp never feels too compressed or loose. It covers soo much ground and is insanely flexible. Its dead quiet when changing channels as well, no pops or other noise. The noise floor is also very good, you can get a lot of gain out of each channel if needed without noise. What impresses me as well is the build quality. This amp is a very solid brick, nothing feels cheap at all. The tolex, switches and knobs all feel really high end and built to last. At the same time though, the amp is quite light for a head of this size, only 35 pounds. Its bigger than a lunchbox but not as big as a Plexi or similar big amp which to me is the perfect size. The features are wide scaling and this amp comes with everything you will ever need. I should mention as well the volume controls are the best I've used on any amp - bedroom, studio, stage; it sounds amazing even at whisper volumes since you have 2 master volumes to work with with and a high quality taper. As for the sounds, I'll start with channel 1. Channel 1 to me is what you expect out of a Mesa clean channel. In this amp depending on the power tubes, it definitely gets in the Fender camp or Mesa Lone Star. Bright and sparkly, but the high end is never harsh or fatiguing. It sounds very, very good and not what I expected out of this amp. It also has an overdrive switch on channel 1 which is essentially like throwing in an overdrive pedal. If you stack another overdrive pedal, surprisingly this channel can get into full distortion if you want it to. It is the most open and least compressed channel and you can do almost everything in this channel if you want to. Channel 2 is the inbetween channel, and this channel to my ear is very British rock sounding. More gain than channel 1, but a little more compressed and warm sounding. You can practically get any classic rock or classic metal tone out of this channel. It also works really well with a boost or overdrive, or you can use the tight switch to also achieve similar results. I love running my Fulltone OCD into this channel, I got it sounding as good as any Plexi type amp or better with lots of crunch and clarity.. just the perfect rock and metal tones. It also sounds just right for lower gain blues or rock as well and you can hear every string loud and clear when strumming power chords. Its not like other high gain amps where things turn muddy, this amp somehow retains string clarity so well. Everything feels 'alive'. Channel 3 is of course the high gain land and I totally love this channel with not too much gain. Just over 50% on the gain and you get a ridiculous amount of sustain and dark distortion sound.. very much like a Mark amp. I run a boost into this and it makes playing through this amp effortless. You just don't want to stop playing it. I use this channel for fusion and progressive metal sounds but surprisingly it can get still get very clean when you turn the gain down or even just light breakup. With a lot of gain, you can do all kinds of thrash metal or just about anything the Dual Rectifier can. So overall, I found nothing I don't like about this amp. If you like the sound of the Mesa amps but want something that can also get you into more British rock sounds and very easy to dial in, this is the way to go. Not to mention it can take any power tube 6V6/6L6/EL34 and you have an amp that can totally change with the flick of a switch. Its worth every dollar and you will not regret it.

I've purchased quite a few Mesa amps in my life and I've pretty much sold them all for one reason or another. They are very good sounding amps and built like tanks but there was always something missing... In come the TC-50 and changes everything. This amp is a players dream come true. It seems to have it all. Great tone, multi-channels, reverb, a great master volume midi capabilities, and so much more including cab clone! If you have not already tried this amp don't walk but run to the store and plug into it today. You will thank me later.... Its hands down the best sounding Mesa amp out there including the new Fillmore 50 they just released.

This is by far the most versatile amp I have ever used/owned/tried. If you can't get a good sound outta this thing, its not the amp. Currently using this in the studio for everything from blues to progressive metal. Top shelf gear.

This is hands down the best amp I've ever played. However note that it is a British voiced amplifier, but in the absolute best of ways. It has the most musical overdrive/distortion sounds I have ever heard straight from an amp without any supplementation. You do not need a pedal to boost the front end to get that tight attack we all love in the higher gain sections, this amp has excellent natural compression. Each channel is absolutely incredible. It's like having 6 amps in 1, I cannot stress that enough. Plus it has MIDI control which is a first for Mesa, well done.
