My F-100 only works at full volume.

It's the same for both channels. I have replaced alle the tubes with new ones. If i use the headphon...

Re: F30 - speaker mute switch / headphones - need info pleas

Don't run the amp (or any tube amp) without a load, the output transformer can be damaged.

Most tube amps (opposite of transistor amps) can handle short circuit well, so using a jack where the
tip and ground is connected probably works (ask Mesa Customer support to be shure).

Re: Hum Noise with nothing plugged in. DR 2 channel

If it still continious after the tube change, it could be a defective condencer in the power supply. Condencers helps removing AC from the DC power.

Mesa boogie custom Jewel light.

As i understand Mesa have offered custom options for most of it's amps. From cherry wood to crocodile skin.
I have seen some variation in pilot light color. Is that a custom option to?

The 60 watt mode of the f-100

Does any one know how it reduces power ? I think clean sounds better at 60w, but distortion/overdrive sounds better at @ 100 watt. And what about tube life, does using 60w increase tube life?

Re: My Opinion: Three things did in the Electra Dyne

In the Clean mode the sound and headroom is amazing, and better than any Fender i have heard. I whish they would have placed the revrb button on the front panel instead of the rear.

Re: "Vintage" Subway Blues

Very nice, looks like a real head.

Have you considered to change the pilot light with a full size Jewel light?

Re: Blue Angel 112 Combo..question?

The Blue Angel has a tube rectifier for the power tubes and a transistor rectifier for the pre-amp tubes. The blue Angel can not change between the two like the other rectifier amps.

Re: Why is the F series not more popular?

This migh sound strange but i think they should have called it something else than F-50 or F-100, which sounds like an aircraft. More in the lines of Blue Angle, Express etc. That beeing said, there is allways a chance that the amp is going to be re-discovered. I thing the reverb is OK on the F seri...

Re: Avatar Cab with EV open or closed back?

The EV12L "must" be used in a thiel cabinet they have a very low Qts and will not sound good in an open back cabinet.

Re: F50 COMBO WHITE NOISE

Try changing the V1 tube. I think i had this on my F-50 years ago, and it solved the problem. If you can, move the preamp tubes around until you can find the one with the least amount of noise. The V4 tube (Phase Inverter) affects your tone the least, so try using that one. I have bouth the F-50 an...

Re: 1x12 cab questions.

And the speaker must also match the cabinet. So an Electro voice EVM-12L with a smal QTS (Thiele/Small parameters) is designed for beeing used in a ported cabinet. Mesa understands this and used them in their ported cabinets : https://encrypted-tbn0.google.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTrtfVtIdemUhV8Kl0KCE...
