Mesa Vs Mesa

I just did a bake off between my new Mesa Dual Rectifier Recording Preamp + 2:100 Poweramp and my Mesa Dual Rectifier Solo Head.

I recorded myself playing a Last Annual lick and re-amped it through both amplifiers using a variety of different mics on the cab.  I also went through and put pink noise generators through each stage and recorded their frequency response characteristics for reference.
