Re: 5 and 15 watt settings don't work

5 and 15 watt settings don't work

Howdy! Just wondering if anyone’s run across this before and has any suggestions. I blew a fuse in my 1x12 LSS and after replacing it and installing new tubes (brand new, from Mesa), it worked about 30 minutes, after which the only setting that would work was the 30W on either channel. I get nothing...

I got to try one in Atlanta early last month. It had just arrived on the floor, as the power cord wasn't untied yet. I went back the next day, and it was already sold. Patience, man. Sorry dude, that was probably me! I bought it at Guitar Center off of North Druid Hills on a Saturday I believe. I l...

Not to insult your intellgence, but if you're playing the amp next to your TV (that's on), htere will be loud humming...also if there are any incandescent lights on the same circuit, especially freestanding ones that are plugged into a light switch-operated wall socket. If that's the case, shut the...

Did you try another guitar cord? Were you playing near a computer monito or a TV? Try removing all the tubes and plugging them all back in. Yes, I tried a different cord. The first socket I plugged into did have a computer also plugged in, so I moved to another socket that was totally empty in anot...

Re: Lonestar problems anyone?

"jontherev" ...but I have read on harmony-central that MANY people have had several different serious issues with it... Hey, isn't this how internet BS can take on a life of it's own? Define "many" and "serious issues" What specific problems have been encountered? Nevermind about that. Besides, I f...

Lonestar problems anyone?

Hey, I am considering this amp as a possible purchase, but I have read on harmony-central that MANY people have had several different serious issues with it. I have heard that Mesa has worked out the kinks, but that doesn't help the older LS's. Any idea WHEN they fixed the problems (what year model)...

Thanks for all the suggestions. :D I hope to get my refund tonight, and go shopping this weekend!!! I saw the reviews at harmony central, so that's a good resource too. I noticed a lot of ppl had reliability issues with the Lonestar...I wonder if this has been addressed by Mesa Boogie. I plan to hit...

Thanks for your reply. If this helps, my f...

Newbie help

Ok, long story short, I am buying my first "real" amp after playing for 16 years. I am leaning towards a boogie because I heard this local Atlanta cat Barry Richman wailing through one several years ago. I am totally uneducated an amps, and I don't get to buy equipment very often, so I want the best...
