Re: Roaster blows fuse when turning on in bold mode

The advanced method if you cannot determine if it is tube related or something else (most likely it is tube related) is to pull power tubes. You can do one at a time if that helps. I generally mark my tubes with an I and an O for 100W amps. I am sure you could use a similar scheme with a 120W amp b...

Re: Roaster blows fuse when turning on in bold mode

Thanks for the tips. I found this in the manual, which talks about power tube issues: FUSE: This is the A.C.’s (Alternating Current) main fuse and provides protection from outside A .C. fluctuations as well as power tube failure damage. Should the FUSE blow, replace it with the same rating in a Slo-B...

Re: 3 channel Triple Rectifier Midi Switching

Ok so I have a NUX PMS2 midi switcher hooked to my Mesa external switcher inputs. I can manually use buttons on switcher to change channels on amp but can figure out how to have Helix LT send the commands. I can get into commands and midi stuff on helix but cannot figure out which to send etc. The ...

Roaster blows fuse when turning on in bold mode

Turning it on in Spongy mode works fine. Yes, it's set to Standby when I fire it up. But when flipping it to bold to turn it on (the correct switch-on procedure according to the manual), the fuse blows after a few seconds. Ideas?

Re: 3 channel Triple Rectifier Loop Mod.(Parallel to Series)

I wanted to convert my 3-channel DR FX loop from parallel to series but after reading through all 6 pages of this thread, I'm just going to take my amp to a tech. :mrgreen: There are too many "versions" of this mod posted here to know which one is correct. :roll: Wiser words have not been spoken. I...

Re: 3 channel Triple Rectifier Loop Mod.(Parallel to Series)

I wrote to the Mesa Italian referent, in the meantime I'd like to try several things to see if the problem is in the loop, or in the preamp-power amp section. Do you think is it possible to use the "slave out" jack, instead of the send to use my pedals? Then, if not possible, I'll use it into anoth...

Re: 3 channel Triple Rectifier Loop Mod.(Parallel to Series)

I'd forgotten that the fuzzy sound was only with the loop engaged. That eliminates the possibility of the problem being at the input. Sorry. Sure sounds like something's broken in the amp. :(

I'd think your best bet is to take it into a good, local guitar amp technician.

Re: 3 channel Triple Rectifier Loop Mod.(Parallel to Series)

Are you certain you're sending a clean tone into the amp? Have you tried it with several different guitars?

Also -- are you sure you're not overdriving the amp's input? All pedals turned off? Passive pickups on the guitar?

Re: 3 channel Triple Rectifier Loop Mod.(Parallel to Series)

Realize that only one channel is clean on a Recto. The other(s) is/are meant to be fuzzy, dirty, distorted. I know this. I'm able to ear the real Recto sound, with the loop off. Unfortunately, I have this problem and I really don't know how to fix it. I only removed the 2 s/r J175, not the J175m, b...

Re: 3 channel Triple Rectifier Loop Mod.(Parallel to Series)

Can you please tell me if this is "normal" for the Rectifier users? I'd say no. I don't have fuzzy sound problem. The serial loop mod is alleged to be able to fix a "sound suck" issue that's about phase cancellation from a digitally processed (slightly delayed due to processing latency) signal in t...

One more: my signature's not appearing in my PM's. Is there a way to enable that?

Thanks.

Re: Forum Support

I have a PM question. I replied to a PM via the PM system (I think). But my reply is sitting in my Outbox. How do I send it, so that it appears in my Sent box? I don't remember having to do this in the past.

Maybe it just takes time for the server to send it?

Thanks.

Re: 3 channel Triple Rectifier Loop Mod.(Parallel to Series)

If your footswitch effects loop in/out no longer works, you could try doing it with your effects unit. It would likely mean some customized patch programming where you turn off relevant effects with a foot tap on your effects unit instead. Or, more simply, you could have some patches that use effect...

Re: 3 channel Triple Rectifier Loop Mod.(Parallel to Series)

Well after tinkering with the mesa loop and gt 10 i found that i can get some good results with the clean channel, but channels 2 and 3 are a completely different story. I'm going to go over the gt10 manuel an see if I can find something like you say...like setting the WET to 100% etc. I have to ad...
