Re: The End of Svetlana Winged C

I understand. Sound is very subjective so it's hard to quantify. I know that I was happy with a mixed quad of Tung-Sols (6L6/EL34). I still have a couple of quads left of the SED =C= & the Tung-Sol will be what I go to after that. Just my 2 cents. Yeah this I stopped using SEDs a few years ago when...

Re: Randall MTS/Egnater MOD

The MTS amps are definitely cool. The problem IMO is the modules are not quite there in stock form. I had one for a while. Heavy SOB. Had a couple jadedfaith mods as well as my own. Had my RM100 for a couple years. Zero issues.

Re: Anybody Roll Without OD Pedals?

I don't always use an OD. But when I do, I...... I don't use ODs 24/7. But I do use them at every show, with every band I play with. Its not about boosting gain. I think anyone that uses an OD will tell you that. Its about different textures of gain, amp feel, and in some case frequency response (or...

Re: Mark III preamp tubes.

I run a mallard in V1. Makes my purple stripe scream. LPS in the PI and Chinese in the rest. Ive owned 2 Mark IIIs in my days and both were extremely picky about preamp tubes. This cocktail worked best in both of them for my ears.

Re: Distortion pedal + Mark III

My mark III is my favorite pedal amp. probably because of the GEQ. I use a variety of pedals for mid and low gain crunch tones since R2 is worthless (without modding your amp)in a live setting. I use an OCD right now but I sometimes use a Barber DDLG, OD808, TS9, SD1, Timmy, Rat and what ever flavor...

Re: Maxon OD808

Swap your cables first.

Are you using a crazy amount of gain?

BHTs for Mark III?

Anyone use BHTs in their Mark III? All of my Mark IIIs have been sensitive to 34 selection - more so than 6L6. Ive been happy with Tung Sol 34Bs for a few years. Thinking about trying something else. I love the BHTs in my rectos. But I am currently recto-less and have no BHTs to try out in my mark I...

Re: El 34 help!!!!!!!

So if I order a winged c quad off ebay are you saying they might not be okay to put in my dual rec? Can it hurt my amp? What I am asking is do they have to have a certain rating to go in my mesa? I have a quad coming I hope I didn't waste my money....I thought as long as they were el34 (or 6l6) I w...

Re: OD pedal for my roadster, help please

Lots of good recommendations. The biggest thing to look for is an OD that doesnt boost the bottomend a bunch. Or in otherwords try to find on that rolls off a touch of bottom - like a tubescreamer. Maybe an SD-1 is a good starting point for you. The OCD is an awesome OD but I prefer my stock OD808 b...
