Re: Will Mesa build...?

Years ago I asked a rep if they’d build me an old school straight/slant Recto 4x12 and he gave me the part number and told me to contact customer service.

I never followed through with it, but it gave me hope.

3. Celection AlNiCo Cream 90W 8 ohm speaker (custom purchase) surprised to measured at 6.7 ohms and i didn't put the amp switch to 4ohms as i used it on so many occasions as one spaker to 8ohm setting It’s normal for an 8ohm speaker to measure between 5 and 7 ohm at idle. A 4ohm speaker would measu...

Re: Used ED combo standby popping and other issues.

Try using an isolated power supply on the Tmeline. The supplied wallwart should be good enough to test with. If the hum goes away with the wallwart then the issue is likely that the Zuma/Ojai is your second path to ground. Most of my ground loop issues have been power supply related, usually from th...

Re: Used ED combo standby popping and other issues.

Seems strange that an amp wouldn't be able to completely cut the signal when the volume is down. This can't be by design, surely. If it is bleed from the tubes, would replacing them help? Replacing them likely won’t change anything. IMO, the bleed is mostly noticeable at very low volumes in an isol...

Re: Used ED combo standby popping and other issues.

- There is a loud pop when switching the amp to standby, even with the Volume and Master all the way down. I understand this is normal in some amps but it seems a little loud. It’s normal, and I agree the ED is worse than most. Mesa uses mechanical relays in their amps. It improves the sonic qualit...

TC-50 - Rig Update

It’s been awhile and I’ve made some changes, none of which my my wife is interested in, so I figured I’d post an update on the Internet. I recently sold my last Recto, bought a second TC-50 and picked up a used Ground Control/GCX. The first amp is setup pretty close to my ideal settings with the rev...

Re: TC-50 Question? What did this amp replace if any?

The TC-50 merged things I liked about the Recto, Mark and Electra Dyne into one amp.

I sold off my last Recto today and bought a second TC-50. I no longer own a Mark. The ED I’m keeping because it’s a f%&# beast, but I mostly use the TC because it’s more manageable.

Re: Tight or Normal, Rhythm or Lead

Instead of setting the channels up for clean/crunch/lead I set them up like three single channel amps: Channel 1 - Drive - Grandpa Rock / Overdriven Fender-ish Channel 2 - Loose - Old Man Rock / JCM800-ish Channel 3 - Loose - Young Man Rock / Mark-meets-Recto I gain all three channels up and use my ...

Re: Questions for People with Both LSC and LSS Experience

I gotta say, we're only two rehearsals in with the LSC, but I'm starting to absolutely love the LSC's high gain rhythm sound (no pedals, not plugged into extension cab, nothin'). Only problem is... you gotta play fricken' loud to get this puppy to really open up, but when it does: wow. My Electra D...

Re: Questions for People with Both LSC and LSS Experience

That makes a lot of sense. I've experimented with several different configurations of cabinets now; to my ears, Mesa's open-backed 1x12" WideBody Compact (is that like "Jumbo Shrimp?") sounds worlds better than anything else. To date, I've liked two Mesa combos... the 1x12 Electra Dyne and the Rect...

Re: Questions for People with Both LSC and LSS Experience

Even a 5 watt amp can annoy your roommates if you have to really push it to get good tones. IMO, the difference in actual volume on the LSC once you get it to start "giving up the goods" in the 10 watt setting vs. 100 watt setting is negligible, 'cause you've got to push it harder in 10 watt mode (...

Re: Questions for People with Both LSC and LSS Experience

[*]It seems like the LSC loses more of its personality at lower (non-pushed) volumes compared to many other modern tube amps. The TC-100 and Mark V come to mind: while neither are amazing at bedroom volumes, they still sound quite good... but I've kinda resigned myself to the fact that a "quite goo...
