    3.5K seems a little high for Mesa?
    Which model goes for 3.5?
    Has to be their high end ones.

    Anyway My choice for 2K:
    --------------------------------

    1) Fender USA Strat HSS (will change the pickups after buying).
    2) A Fender Deluxe amp or similar.
    3) A great analog overdrive/distortion pedal.
    4) A Good multiFx for things like Delay/Modulation etc...

    Since I can buy all of these used I could still have some $ left after I get the above.
    I would buy good quality cables.

    all the Mesa rectifiers are above 3.5K ... and the MArk IV are eve n costlier ...

    u can get Mesa preamps for 2.5K ... but then u will havta buy a separate amp + speaker ...

    i got this dat from their site ... if u go thru supplier webstes ... then mayB u get a better deal coz they sometimes wanna sell of their stock n for that they are willing to reduce the price

    They are amplifiers made in USA.
    Famous for many of the modern high gain sounds like Metallica.

    For example the Triple Rectifier:

    Jekyll Sahab,

    Maybe we both are right.
    Those prices maybe true in India.

    Here they are much less.

    One for the Newer models the F Series (comes in 30, 50, 100 Watts) is a killer. I have played through the F-50. Its a winner is pretty much in every department. From Clean to full on distortion and everything in between.

    Under a 1000 new. Under 800 Used.

    Yes. More than a few 2Ks is needed in your case.
