thats a valid point for sure. part of the reason i've owned over 100 amps in my day (besides obsession) is because for decades you weren't able to go on you tube and watch someone run through the settings with a good mic, and what not. You had to buy one used, hope it was in working order, jam on it for a while, then resell it if you we're feeling it. hopefully not loose your ass on that.I think part of why they are selling so high is cause there are a lot of good clips out there of Marks right now on youtube etc... A couple years ago there wasn't many good detailed vids of them.
So that many amps later, the mark IIC+ - IVa 's are still my favs of everything i ever tried.
even since this thread started, i feel like the prices spiked even more. every mark III coming up now is 2k +
By the way, this guy couldn't sell his mark III for 1400, so he relisted it for hundreds more! lol. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Mesa-Boogi...208893?hash=item5b8eb45cfd:g:Zs8AAOSwdg1gURCT
