Looking for one....
What I have:
Mesa Mk III
Dunlop rack wah
Pedal board
Bogner/Friedman cube w/ 300w EVM BLS speaker

Guitars: Les Pauls, Tele and strats

I had a Bogner 20th XTC that I miss but do not have room for. I moved into a 37' Newmar Motor Home :D

I was wondering about the EVH 5153III lunch box. Has 2 channels, effects loop and wattage power scale down switch.

I want fender clean. I might get a Bogner Blue and Red Pedal.

Are there any other 2 channel/effects loop lunch box amps out there with a fender Clean?

Mesa Mark V 25. Has a great clean to it, although it's more than twice the price of the 5150 lbx
Yeah I have a mk III and can't believe how much the MkV 25 cost.

Looks like there is a 6505 mini with clean and some more features.

Just read the EVH is crunch,lead only. Ch 2/3 of big brother

Yep, the blue and red channel are cool but definitely wont get you into the Fender cleans. But if you're looking for Fender cleans, the Mark is the way to go, just wish it wasn't priced so high, but it is a lot of bang for the buck. You can probably find them used at pretty reasonable prices soon since the Mark V 35 just got released. The beauty of the mini mark is the also the separate EQ's for each channel. Im not a fan of shared EQ, I'm not good enough to make both channels sound good with only one set of EQ's.

Another option, if you are thinking of getting a Bogner Blue and Red pedal, is to just get a Fender Hot Rod, (if you have room) and use the Bogner pedals for your dirt. Best of all worlds right there. I was testing this exact set-up in a shop last week and it really has me re-thinking my whole amp set up.

Not much room :LOL: :LOL: want to put the Mesa away for something smaller, lighter and a little more flexible. I do not need 60 watts :doh:

I removed the flex steel recliner because it was too large for me and it opened up space for a big screen and guitar stuff :D

Outside view :D slides open out 3'x13-1/2' but I rarely open them for just me and my pup. The trailer is a 28' custom V nose with front ramp for my bike and rear ramp for the car. Motor Home dwarfs the trailer. Trailer looks huge attached to my truck.

I would just keep that set up, even if you did get a smaller combo it would still be taking up roughly the same footprint. You already have something that sounds better than most.

Yea there's always used but chances are your getting the fulgy blue tolex and old logo. I like the look of the new ones.
