Re: Why is the F series not more popular?

I have an f100 2/12 combo and it is crazy loud. It is my first mesa and first real quality amp. Got it in trade for a Taylor 712, kinda regret making that trade from time to time but that is another story. It is a good amp and I am thankful the SOB has wheels. It does sound it's best cranked way up....

Re: Possible mod to ch 2 of F50?

I have an f100 combo and the clean channel is as different as night and day to the dirty channel. I don't think and eq in the loop could compensate. The eq characteristics are so different for each channel. I have a tonelab running into the front of the amp right now, I use the clean channel. Have a...

Re: F30 as Power Amp

If it sounds good....then what the hell!!haha. Something else I thought of....I wonder what it would do sound wise if you did the effects loop jumper volume control thing with your set up.That'd be a frankenstein SOB there! I did it on my amp and got quite a bit more tonal range than normally. Do y...

Re: f100 combo....reverb stopped working

Ok. I haven't had a chance to check the resistance readings yet but if I do and I determine that the tank is ok, I could replace the chips and or transistors. I have a fair amount of electronic experience, soldering and what not. Can I determine which things I need to replace by looking at the board...

Re: f100 combo....reverb stopped working

I know this off topic but I have also been fooling around with the preamp tubes and I have a question about WHEN exactly is a tube considered microphonic? If I turn the amp on and turn it to channel 2, turn the gain up to ten and then start turning the level up it starts getting squealy around 3. T...

Re: f100 combo....reverb stopped working

Hi, I took the tank out and looked it over, it looks ok...checked the connections and they seem fine. I took the foot pedal out of the mix to eliminate that. I tried plugging in the rca jacks in backwards than what they were and I started picking up a radio station! Reverb still not working. Should...

Re: F50 COMBO WHITE NOISE

I was fooling around with my f212 combo last night. I noticed that I had forgotten to put the tube retainers back on. I replaced them and alot of the noise I was getting went away. I was getting alot of random static-ee popping sounds...not real loud but loud enough to be annoying as hell. I still h...

Re: Brightening F-30

like he said....turn the bass down...way down to almost nothing. Turn your treble and mid to about the three o clock postion and see if thats any better.
The Bass control on the gain channel, like many here have stated before, is an anti flubb control.
