Re: Problems with your Mark V...it's the amp.

Unfortunately, this is another example completely incorrect information being propagated on the Boogie Board!

The ferrite bead effects frequencies beyond human hearing, and block the introduction of high frequency radio waves. 300k to 5Mhz

Re: Who's the new C+ guru?

I thought Boogie Babies IS Mike B. Am I wrong? Confirming what Tien wrote: Boogiebabies and Mike B are two different people. I speak from personal experience with both. As far as your question Henz post it, you never know. Also use the search tool, there is a ton of info to be found on the board Ti...

Re: JP2C not what I expected - tube issue?

I'm curious here... I own a MarkIV(B) as well... (And I love my V since it is free from issues) ... But the IV is the best amp I ever played. To me, the JP2C shares its preamp roots with the V (afaik it is not a 2C+ PCB, therefore not a reissue), combined with a BIG monstrous poweramp and modded fo...

Re: Mark III reverb, can it be improved?

Are you using the footswitch to switch to the higher reverb setting? Its not an on/off - but rather a high/low.

Re: Who's the new C+ guru?

Boogie Babies is NOT Mike B. I've asked Mike B to try to clear up some of the mis-information posted here - but he felt the task was simply to large to tackle.

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: Thoughts on the Mesa "Boogie"

What are you talking about ? My Fender Twin has 2 12 inch speakers wired in parallel which presents a 4 ohm load to any amp its plugged in to..... I remove the single 12 inch 8 ohm standard MK II C speaker from the Boogie and plug in the Fender Twin speakers into the 4 ohm jack of the boogie. What ...

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.
