Re: How to slave IIc+?

Alex, From the Mk-IIC Operating Manual: "The Slave Level control and Slave Output jack located on the rear panel of the amplifier give you a direct output feed which faithfully captures the entire sound of the amp and preamp and can be regulated to properly match anything from a mixing board to a po...

Re: Converted IIC+ with Export Transformer

This is a pop Song with a 1955 Les Paul Standard converted to 58's PAFs over his favourit MKIIC+ I did not knew, that the MK IIc+ can sound that way. Most players play that amp to get Metallica sound. There is something special about lower output humbucker pick-ups when playing through a C+. I was ...

Re: watzit? 2c+? mark3 prorotype?

That preamp board is the Mark III preamp board. That's an early Mark III where the silkscreening for rhythm 2 hasn't been added yet. That's all. It's a Mark III. Just a very early one. We've already been over this. Here in this topic. I stand corrected your Lordship. Please accept this humble apolo...

Re: watzit? 2c+? mark3 prorotype?

There is most definitely a "+" over the power cord.
It has a C+ face plate as well.
Looks like an SRG IIC+ (60w, Reverb, Graphic EQ) but I can't make out what model pre-amp board is in it.

Re: Can I use EL34s with my Blue Stripe?

I recently acquired a spotless wide-body Blue stripe Mark III. It does not have a simul-class switch or reverb and is currently loaded with a quad of 6L6's. My belief was that EL34s on the outer sockets was reserved for the simul-class versions but someone has a similar blue stripe for sale in the ...

Re: Does a mk2 head exist with reverb?

I agree. Looking at my schematics, there's not much to it. I m gonna check voltages and solder connections when I install pot. Thanks for the reply. Jim Did you ever get this fixed? If not it may be something as simple as a grounding issue. A very common problem with a simple easy fix. Search the b...

Re: DC-5 Head mounting screw location?

Thanks! It's all good, I'm not too concerned about tolex thickness but thanks for bringing it into consideration. It's sounding like a DC-5 combo or head cab is only 10" deep (outside edge to outside edge). Am I getting that accurately? Is that correct? If 10" is correct then the 2-3/8" from the bac...

Re: DC-5 Head mounting screw location?

Thanks jedi, Greatly appreciated! Considering it's 2-3/8" this brings up another measurement question: How deep is the cabinet? Since it's slanted at the top what is the distance from the back to the top edge of the slant? Also what is the depth/ distance from the back to the front edge below the sl...

Re: Where to get Mesa OEM tolex and grill cloth?

Yes, I found several places that sell Wine Taurus, but don't know if it's the same as Mesa sources from. I was hoping someone might know. I have yet to find an alternate source for Cream Black Jute Grill cloth. I'll keep searching. I've made many cabs using it and also seen many Mesa cabs that have...

DC-5 Head mounting screw location?

I need to confirm the distance of the back mounting screws on a DC-5 head This is for the two screws closest to the back of the amp. I'm looking to see how far in they are from the back of the amp to the center of the mounting screw. I have two conflicting measurements so hopefully someone can help ...
