Re: Is there any difference between IIC+ 60W and 60/100W?

Hi guys im coming to you as i have the chance to grab a 1985 iic+ 60w geq head for great price in my local area, however im concerned about the 60w version as not having gain enough or being metal (think metallica`s sound) enough for my applications as compared to the 60/100w or simulclass... So i ...

Re: Look at 'em there, pretty maids all in a row.

Now look at that. The best powertubes ever. I remember when I first got to this forum, and read about the Sylvanias my curiosity took over and I had to give them a go. Which ended in the conclusion: Sylvania's vs everything else. The difference IS that big. I've seen both single and dual getters for...

Re: Mesa/Boogie RecRecPre Demonstration – “Recording Direct"

In 2002, when the RRP was released, Torpedo Live's and Eventide Space's did not exist and "home recording" meant you had a recording studio at your home(s). Times have changed, as the Torpedo Live demonstrates. Unfortunately, the manual for the RRP never changed because manuals never change. Are yo...

Re: Mesa/Boogie RecRecPre Demonstration – “Recording Direct"

Long time since I read this part of the forum, anyway. Just did a quick demo of the Rectopre with Boss GEQ7 (it's a bit noisy but you get the idea) and the Torpedo Live. https://youtu.be/nVpQbyKxDSA Very nice! Raw Mode on Channel 2 never sounds like that for me! I used a boost (Fulltone OCD) for a l...

As long as the 415 works, age doesn't matter, they're probably better than anything you can buy, and as Joey says as well. the 416 is also the best EL34 in my experience. Other tubes just doesn't come close.

Re: IIC+ footswitching not working.

Almost certain that it's just a bad soldering, but I cannot tell for sure, any local tech will find out. But sending it to Petaluma will add a complete healthcheck by the MAN himself. Might cost you some extra but the amp will benefit for it.

Re: New Mark II C+

Just tell the tech not to replace the powertubes.
If they sound good, they work, simple as that.
Are they branded Mesa STR415?
FYI they are Sylvanias.

Re: New Mark II C+

If your powertubes are the STR415 and working, keep them, whatever you do, no tubes will sound as good. For the preamptubes there are a lot of opinions. You will definitely benefit for a cap replacement. Caps will dry out if they are not in use and the big ones in there are said to be good for ten y...

Re: MK III Controls

LOL No not really. If you understand the cascading gain of the Mark series it's not all that hard to dial in what you're looking to get Just as the quote. The biggest mistake non-Mesa players do when dialing or try to dial in a mesa is that the bass control is too high. On a mark series the rule is...

Re: MKIIC+ Export

Tony am I missing something in your reply? Pretty sure the PT has nothing to do with it being an export or not, it's the OT. You should know as you own a couple. ;-) Not sure what OT was used on the 60 watt C+ export but there again you own one so you should know. It's the other way around George. ...
