Re: Poll: How Old Are You?

Keep rocking IronSean! You are in the right place. Wow! Elpelotero you have been a member for a long time. Old folk's home is what this place is. Also, a library of knowledge. I'm 46. This month I celebrate 23 years of being an Ironworker. Next month I celebrate 32 years of playing guitar.

Re: Studio Caliber lead channel goes out after 5 minutes???

Most likely a tube problem.

If it is, taking them out and putting them back in will do absolutely nothing to help.

Re: Megadeth Festival = No amps anywhere for ALL bands!!!

I've been watching a lot of the Rig Rundown videos on YouTube. Those professional techs have it down pretty good backstage, running two rigs - one for the stage and one for the PA. I honestly do not like large shows. Almost hate them. The last big show I went to was Anthrax, Testament and Death Ange...

Re: WTB: Boogie 4x12 Metal Grill

It's so beat up though! I think it is in great shape. Just too much. Check out the cabinet underneath my Racktifier. THAT is beat up.

Might even bring your reverb back.
On the .50Caliber+ one of the 5 preamp tubes is the reverb tube.

Sorry for the slow reply. That gives time for someone, that has had the same problem or knows more than myself, to chime in. 1 Yes. Some brands are better, to some people, as far as dependability quality. And some offer different grades of performance quality. Mainly in preamp tubes. Such as, I cur...

Re: JP-2C vs Quad/295 vs Mark III Red Stripe

Great find on the video! Sounds great. Yes, the Quad/295 is cheaper. I bought my 295 for $600 and Quad for $430. Probably could get a red stripe for around that. Just to give you a warning. The Quad/295 is extremely heavy because of it being two separate amps in one package. Total of 20 tubes inside...

Re: Need Help With Studio 22 Tune-Up

my buddy suggested that it probably just needs new tubes Your buddy is probably right. The most part, maybe 95% of Mesa amp problems are tube related. Sounds like your tubes are worn out. Your amp takes 2 EL84 power tubes and 5 12AX7 preamp tubes. Here is the cheapest I could find on eBay. - http:/...
