Re: 1994 Rev G....Keep or return? (possible PT issue)

I bought some JJ power tubes to my Mark V and it’s humming pretty loud in normal voltage setting. With variac setting there’s a lot less hum... it’s all about poorly matched tubes and incorrect bias :shock: Can you borrow a set of known good tubes or drop the amp to tech (with good reputation and no...

Re: Wish/Fantasy

Yeah the combo is damn heavy. I bought a head also that easier to carry. If a reissue I’d also kwant a better reverb. That’s what i dont like at the dyne at all. I want a fender super reverb sounding like reverb. By the way is it possible to achieve a fender like reverb just swapping the tank out o...

Both amps are rack-mountable thus chassises should be under 19” :) probable fit...

Re: EM Custom MIDI switcher

Thanks!

So the device itself cannot save the own state per PC. So I would preferably use CC messages from midi controller to control the amp... :!:

Hum... have to investigate a bit more about this 8)

Re: EM Custom MIDI switcher

Hi.

This thing has got me interested again to convert the rig to midified.

How that thing is programmed for case:
preset #1 : Ch3 / geq off / reverb on/ solo off.
preset #2 : Ch2 / geq on / reverb off / solo on
Etc.

I found some manual but it was not so elaborate :shock:

Re: Depth/Resonance mod for Vintage Mode (2 Channel)?

Only necessary mod would be the serial loop mod.. after that one could use eq in loop to tame the depth charge effect :) Mesa GEQ would be somehow proper eq for the Mesa amp ;)

Re: Mark V footswitch connections

Hello! I believe that Mark V 90 W 8 pin din connector is just 7 on/off connectors and power for footswitch. So the pins should be: Channel 2, Channel 3, Reverb, Mute, FX loop, Solo and EQ. The ground is needed of course. So I have 8 pin din connector and I am planning to build a connector box to my...

Re: Which LoneStar?

With a set of Yellow Jackets, you can run EL84s in the LSC. Found that out in the forums here. I believe you can even blend EL84s and 6V6s in 100 watt mode on the LSC if I remember correctly. I tested this with Roadster :) using the yellow jackets/el84 in 50w tube positions and leaving the 100w wit...

Re: Electra Dyne Volume Taper

Hi. I solved the volume taper issue with extra volume pot in fx loop (simple volume pedal works also.. but I diy’d from parts found at home). No mods needed in amp itself which is nice. Other mod would be to mod the reverb circuit to return the wet signal before fx-loop so that it would not be paral...

Hello. From those you listed I’ve tested the thiele with EVM and widebody closed back... My personal preference would be closed back and from the ones I had, the widebody closed back was the winner. The thiele with evm could be harsh in certain settings and if my memory serves right thiele is extrem...

Re: Mesa MarkV / Saturation 'mod'

I'm new to the MK V and just stumbled upon this thread. There's a TON of information here! Can i please just get a down and dirty update? Maybe update the OP? Not looking to do anything but the AT7 swap. Is it just V47? Just V6? Both? Thanks! If you have a single AT7, try it in V6 for a while, then...

Re: Mark IV: What's the point of having Left & Right Effect Returns?

Right, but if I understand correctly, the Simul-Satellite is just a Mesa branded Poweramp + GEQ + Speaker packaged into a combo format. Still not sure why a stereo fx processor wouldn't just route one channel directly to the Satellite, instead of sending both channels back to the IV, then going bac...
