Re: 2x12 Recto cabinet with V30s rated 140W?

Mesa used to rate their V30s at 70w because that’s what Marshall did. A number of years back they changed it to 60w because that’s what Celestion lists them as. No change in the speaker, just marketing. Older 4x12s were 280w. It took longer to change because they had a lot of 280w stickers to go thr...

Re: High pitched hum or tone ,,, is this right

I prefer heads and cabs.

Every time I get a combo for portability I wind up regretting it... mostly because I think closed back cabs sound better for the kind of music I play.

Re: High pitched hum or tone ,,, is this right

Anything could’ve happened to it during shipping. The whistle sounds abnormal. The only time I’ve experienced something similar was with a ground loop via my pedalboard, and it went away when I sorted my pedalboard out. I suggest the tubes because it’s easy and most issues with tube amps are tube re...

Re: High pitched hum or tone ,,, is this right

Then I’m not sure. I’d start by moving the amp a couple feet to the side to see if it’s interferance (make sure you don’t have a phone or iPad sitting on top of it), and if that doesn’t work verify that are the tubes are properly seated.

Re: High pitched hum or tone ,,, is this right

Are you using pedals?

Do you have any effects in the effects loop?

Re: reverb changes tone !!!! HELP!!!1

Tube reverb changing the tone of an amp isn’t new. Making it switching adds and removes a lot of circuitry from the signal path. To the best of my knowledge, the only way to make it sound consistent is to leave it in the signal path all the time and just mute the trails. Mesa has opted not to do tha...

Re: My “new” Heartbreaker

If you’re a gigging player, try the amp out in a mix before modding it.

Sometimes Mesa’s design decisions will drive you up a wall in isolation, then start making much more sense when you hear them in the proper context.

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.

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...
