Re: Subway Rocket non-reverb

The manual is a good place to start: https://mesa-boogie.imgix.net/media/User%20Manuals/Subway%20Rocket.pdf I have the Rocket 44 (1x12') which is double the power section with an almost identical front end (-presence) with a tiny reverb pan that is almost sonically non-existent anyway. I use a delay...

Re: Is anyone playing blues with a Mk IV?

I’d be trying to set up the clean channel to clip. One of the common threads with Mesa is that as you turn up gain you have to increase treble and roll the bass way off.

Re: Contour channel switch

Hi Mate, I have a Rocket 44 which has the same Contour feature on the dirt channel as the F. I have had the exact same issue you described and it turned out it was a faulty component in the power supply circuit that was causing it to switch between regular Overdrive and Contour mode by itself. You w...

Re: Annoying bass thump with pick attack - Subway Rocket

The contour mode really ramps up the bass. Different speakers will emphasise this more than others. EQ pedal set to roll off some lows is actually your only option. Or, maybe use the regular OD setting with the EQ in the loop, scoop some mids and don't boost the low end as much. You can get a pretty...

Re: Suggestions for Subway Blues replacement speaker??

Hi! Looking for a suggestion or two about a replacement speaker for a subway blues combo. My MC 90 speaker bit the dust. Looking for something that will cut some of the harsh mid range. I thinking maybe an eminence legend or cannabis rex? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks ! Matt These...

Re: I recently traded for a Rocket 440

IMO, why buy a Rocket when a Mark is the same price? I passed on a Mark III in like new shape for $500 to buy a Mark IV for $450.00 (traded a Twin I paid $450 for). I've owned quite a few Boogie amps and I only use one at a time. Mark IIC++ or Mark IV or JP2C? "Oh, maybe I'll use the "Rocket' tonig...

Re: I recently traded for a Rocket 440

I have the 44 which is more or less the same but in 1x12 minus the tremolo. Very nice amps but they didn't really make them for long. Still a few out there on S/H market though and can be had for a good price. Been digging mine since 2011.

Re: Subway Blues - Any Cathode Follower Tubes?

I can't see the tube compliment in the Subway Blues user manual. What about the FX loop? I have the Rocket 44 which is related preamp-wise (part of the Subway family). In the Rocket (which has 4x12ax7s) V3 is a cathode follower tube and I have found that JJs get chewed up very quickly in that spot. ...

Re: Mark 1 reissue

For Marks keep the bass low (2-3) and the Treble high (7-9). The Mark 1 circuit has a naturally loose low end.
