Re: New ElectraDyne released by Mesa

Mine is the widebody, 27" combo with the stock Mesa C90 speaker. I also have a Recto 2x12 cab with English made Marshall V30's and it has a bit more forward upper mids. I honestly prefer the stock C90. I agree. The ED sounds better with a C90. I also have a Boger 2x12 loaded with a greenback and a ...

Re: Electra Dyne Low Gain Tones

I am an ED owner and recently tested the TC-50. I liked the amp and love all the features of the amp. I was not able to get THAT ED tone from it though. I do think, like in this video that testing it with 6L6's will help quite a bit. I have an opportunity to do so just haven't found the time. The cl...

Re: Got one

I got mine this afternoon from The Guitar Store . Thank you, Brian and James. http://dlpas.co/Z4f7+.png Initial thoughts: - This is not like my electradyne was: it's WAY brighter, but it can also get a lot heavier. Seems like a Mark III Blue Stripe and a Royal Atlantic had a drunken hookup. Keep th...

Re: Lonestar 2.0, will it ever happen?

I hope Mesa does make a Lonestar mini head...I'll buy one! Just imagine....50watts, dual 6L6 with reverb, Lonestar classic clean tone, and the small size of a Mark V 25. I think Mesa would sell a ton of these, and I'll buy the first one. They just did. Its called the TC-50.. :lol: They were able to...

Re: Can Mark V 35 do Lone star clean??

IMO, not even close.

Obviously the tubes have alot to do with it. If you want a warm amp Lone Star it is. I played one last week and I am REALLY wanting to get one. Wish it had more features like the MV35 but that warm tone in both the clean and drive channel sound amazing to my ears.

Re: TC compared to Royal Atlantic- Similar?

I was able to try out the TC-50 last week. My thoughts: Amazing cleans, Not quite Lone Star but more JP cleans. Great reverb!! Low gain - This section covers ALOT of ground. From low again Electra Dyne ( but not as good IMO) to very heavy gain. High gain - Again very flexible. Cool how you can even ...

Re: 1x12 extension cab - open, closed, 3/4, or ported?

I have the ED head. I have both the open back 1x12 with the Black Shadow + a 2x12 horizontal cab with V30's.. Talk about the best of both worlds!! It sounds amazing.

I agree with Elvis about the vertical cab but you get a ton of low end BOOM with a horizontal cab sitting on the floor.

Re: [video] Electra Dyne tones

Sounds great! Thanks for sharing.

Howd you get that high gain sound from the 2nd track? My red channel doesnt sound like that... I think I need new tubes.. :-)

Re: Mullards?

I love my pre amp Tung Sol's. Not a huge difference but noticeable.

I might have to do Power Tubes soon. I need a change.

Strymon Deco

First of all I am a huge pedal geek. Swapping pedals all of the time. I am a huge fan of Strymon's gear as I own a Blue Sky, TimeLine, Mobius and now the Deco. The Deco is a huge win for me. The analog tape simulation is amazing. It gives you that perfect boost/saturation that I need. It is an alway...
