||Mesa V-Twin HELP|
I have a chance to pick up a Mesa V-Twin at a pawn shop. It has been 'smoked' , they say it was plugged into the wrong power supply ??? Anyways, I've never played one of these before so:
1) How do they sound?
2) Are they easy to fix/tweak?
3) is it worth $100 if it can be fixed?
Thanks In Advance For ANy Helps

You might want to pass on this one because they can often be found on-line for ~$200 used. The double-sided circuit board is jam packed with components and not the easiest thing to work on. Looking at the schematic I have a hunch that it cooked the 1:18 step-up transformer.
If it comes with the correct power supply I'd say that it might be worth $50; if the power supply is missing then I'd offer $25 for it. (The case alone is way cool.)
The sound is a matter of preference; I like the clean and blues channels but the solo channel is a bit over the top...

You vultures! I haven't got it yet!
I think I will take Steve's advice and offer them $25 for it. I don't think they have the right power supply for it, so if they don't go for my offer, I'll just pass. ... If you want, just send me $25 and I'll go pick it up for you ...
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah ...
