Re: Mark V Issue - Need Help!!

I did a tube test with Rich at Mesa on the phone. One by one, all tubes seemed to work. Checked the rectifier tube in CH1 45W mode/tube rect and everything was good. Played for about 20 mins, and heard a volume drop, so I quickly turned it off. This time, the fuse did not burn out. I could smell som...

Re: Mark V Again

I agree, no matter what I hear, the Mark V still just beats it head to head. Then you consider everything else the Mark V offers, and there is no comparison. All bias aside, as it was my first Mesa, but I truly think it is the greatest amp in history. If it only had Midi......

Petrucci JP2C Summit in McKinney Texas

Anyone make it out to the Tone Summit with John at the Guitar Sanctuary in McKinney, TX?

What a great night of JP and Doug West talking Mesa and tone for over 2 hours. The man really loves his new amp. Sounded Great. Doug West was also a special treat as well!

Mesa Brit Evolution?

Can someone in the know give me the 411 on the Stiletto, Electra Dyne, and Trans Atlantic Series?

How similar are they? Why did the Stiletto go away? Same with the other two.

Just curious to hear what has gone on with Mesa as the try to lay claim to Brit tone..


Thanks,

Tube went down- Amp still working?

I am curious what are the effects of a power tubing going down in my V... Amp just faded out (volume), looked behind, had a tube glowing LAVA!!!

Turned amp off, later in the night, turned it back on, and it is still working. ????

What should i be noticing with 1 tube not working?

Re: Road King 1 and Marshall 1960a Both Mint for $1100?

Cheapest Road King i can find on the bay right now is $1800. I figured it was a stupid deal, and that he should go for it. He had been holding out for a RKII, but I am sure at this price, we will be happy with the RKI!!!
