Re: Just put a Weber Alnico Silver in my cab - MAJOR mojo tone!

I thought you were trying to sell yours? Has the speaker swap changed your mind?

I'm running the TA-15 thru a Mesa Recto 2x12 (V30's), I'm also looking for something more portable and vintage-flavored to lose the more modern feel the amp currently possesses thru this cab.

Re: New TransAtlantic: Unbearable Amounts of Hisssssss !!!

I tried the TA-15 along side the Lone Star Classic - The LSC was the same if not noiser. So I think it is just the way it is. I also now realise that it was probably unfair of me to compare the TA-15 (whose valves operate in class A) against a Fender amp (whose valves operate in class AB). Agreed. ...

Re: TA-15 Tarnishing...

As regulars on the forum will perhaps have noticed, what a great amp! My only problem is I’ve noticed some dull tarnish appearing on the “Platinum Pearl Powder” parts of the exterior that I’m not able to remove: the tarnished bits appear to have been caused where I’ve touched the amp while gigging:...

Re: Mesa Transatlantic does Van Halen! (clip inside)

Thanks for the comments/compliments. A thought about muddiness in the mix... there is suspicion that the overall mix suffered from a hollow/empty stage riser. Before the gig, it was noted that stomping on the stage caused some of the mics to feed back. Not sure how you dial that outta the mix. I th...

Mesa Transatlantic does Van Halen! (clip inside)

... and Alice in Chains, and Slither, and a few others! My band played a gig this weekend, we had a studio come out and run the sound mix into cubase so we can make a demo. I thought it came out pretty killer, and though the mix isn't perfect, the guitar tracked beautifully. So well in fact I though...

Re: New Member - just snagged a Heartbreaker!

Congrats! Do you always run the amp with just two power tubes as in the pic? I would be interested to hear your thoughts on the difference of two tubes vs. four. I've had the amp one week, I threw the 2 x EL-34's in there on Friday. I just switched back to the 4 x 6L6's that came with the amp. I th...

New Member - just snagged a Heartbreaker!

Greetings all. I'm new to the board (first post! 8) ), and new to Mesa Boogie. I just picked up a Mesa Heartbreaker, s/n HRT00258, at GC for $599 + tax, total $650 out the door. Bought it spur of the moment on a whim, after a quick demo near closing time. Seemed it would probably go out the door pre...
