Re: Solo 50 blew

Sounds like its simply a bad power tube, the fuse blew doing its job as a protection device. Most likely you just need to replace the pair of power tubes and fuse.

Re: I love this blue channel.

The stock EL34s from Mesa really need to be "broken in." I do this by leaving the amp on for 24 hours with nothing plugged into the front. It has been my experience that it tames any harshness in the top end and makes the tone more smooth overall. YMMV. FWIW, this is done at the shop before final p...

Re: The forgotten and unsupported pure MK II C

A good reason is the $1000 upgrade cost not to mention the huge PITA and cost to ship it from Boston to Mexifornia. Opinions both positive and negative for the "upgrade" are all over the internet. I'm more than happy with my straight II C and have no desire to make any changes to it. The II C + mod...

Re: Mark V Clean Channel Cutting Out - Help!

Have you tried exercising the rotary switch on the back of the amp? Sounds like it may be oxidized and needs cleaning. Sounds strange, but I've seen it a few times now and is something easily over-looked.

Re: TC-50 Guidance

In final play-test we test the amp with all accessories, just as you receive it. That means the footswitch, reverb tank, and in a combo amp - the speaker. In initial play-test we simply use a bench foot controller, bench reverb tank, and same cab for every amp - but in final we test with everything ...

Re: Finally happy with my V

Interesting, as the SPAX7 is exactly the same tube as our 12AX7 - it simply tests for slightly lower background noise and has the wrap to help prevent microphonics.

Re: Mesa Boogie TA15 Metal Cover clean up

Unfortunately, if its got fingerprints and tarnish its probably the result of a previous owner trying to shine it up. The ornaments were clear-coated, and if cleaned with a solvent-based cleaner will eat the clear-coat, and lead to the situation you describe.

The diodes in the LV power supply need to be addressed. This should be done by an Authorized MESA Repair Station.

That is awesome news. Thanks for verifying that. I have a late 73 head that seems to be a prototype. Property tag era. All the ones with the gloss faceplate that I had seen previously were the Japanese clones.
By 73 there wasn't much going on as far as prototypes. Enjoy!
