Re: Whats your fav amp for 5 string electric mandolin
I haven't had a chance to "live" with a Mesa or the Fender amps, but certainly my guitar-playing buddies love them (and I have tried a couple of them with my 5-String). My favorite is still a 150 watt Powerblock running stereo through 2 each 2x8 cabs (total of four Eminence Alpha drivers with four tweeters). I also use 70 HZ high-pass filters since the cabs were designed to do double-duty as occasional PA cabs. Extremely clean sound with tons of headspace. I rely on effects for distortion.
