The Badlander absolutely smokes the TC50 as does the JP2C. The Triple Crown really should’ve been discontinued a long time ago in my opinion. I really am not impressed with anything Mesa/Boogie has come out with in almost 30 years now except this Badlander. The Badlander, early Revision Rectifiers, Mark IIC+’s and III’s are their best amps and imo the only ones necessary to have at one point in one’s gear questI was already considering the Mesa Boogie Triple Crwon TC50, but I wanted to know if there were other alternatives or better options for what I'm looking for. How does the Badland stack up against it?
There very well might still be better options for you than the Badlander because we don’t exactly know your taste in tone yet, but the TC I certainly don’t think would be one of them and that’s not a new amp like the Badlander. I don’t think it matters how new the amp is. Only matters really how good it sounds
