Re: combo shells Mark & DC (updated with link to pics)

Hi,
Saw your combo cab, for sale, is this the same size cab as a Mark series cab? I think the width is the same, but not sure. It's 17in on the is
Inside?

What would your best price be?

Steve

Re: Is there such a thing as a Stiletto Trident Stage II?

I was considering a trade, for my Trident, and got a chance to play it against a Splawn QuickRod. I was surprised at the differences. The Mesa was easier to get good tones at a lower volume than the QR. The QR sounded more Like a Marshall, but didn't quite have the versatility that the Stiletto had....

Re: More Mods For Those Interested

berumen77, thanks for Posting these mods, I'm very interested in trying some of them. I agree with you on the speaker choice, a Vintage 30 and Stiletto Stage II are a terrible match. I have a question, if you don't mind. If you've ever monitored the bias as you are switching channel modes, in the Fi...

Electra Dyne Ghetto Solo Boost

I know the forum doesn't get used much anymore, but I wanted to share this with those of you that like and own the amp, but wish it was a bit 'more' feature rich, for live playing. I like Reverb. I think the ED has a nice Reverb. A while back I wanted to use this amp in my cover band situation and u...

Re: Which single foot switch for a stiletto ?

this is relatively easy to do, if you know how to read a Mulitmeter and know how to solder. I own 2 Stilettos, but I'm not near either of them, atm, so I'm doing this from memory. the original footswitch/cable is a TRS(tip-ring-sleeve) type, or Stereo. tip will be one 'channel' or function, ring ano...

Re: Question for those with a Mesa Electradyne

I have an Electra Dyne head. It tend to be a bit on the dark side, until you get it up to volume, then it sit in the mix really well. I swapped in a Tung-sol for V1, and that helps a little. I've noticed on mine that the Reverb add a sizzle that is hard to dial out. Also, I've run a volume pedal in ...

Re: Do I have a hole shaped like a Stiletto?

The Stiletto Stage II is a great amp. Cleans are really good, ifyoui want that. The gain tones very good. I own a Mark and a Recto, the Stiletto doesn't overlap either. The Stiletto is more sounding than a Rec, but not as in your face as a Mark. The bold/Spongy variac, silicone/tube rectifier really...

Re: Is there such a thing as a Stiletto Trident Stage II?

Yes, I own one. I also own a Deuce stage II.

They sound the same, at the volume I play at.

The only difference is Trident has a fan in is from Mesa, the Deuce does not

Re: Best Method of changing premap tubes

When I owned a Mark V, the first time I wanted try current preamp tubes in V1, I pulled the chassis out, removed the front grill, and took a jig saw and cut an access hole through the front. Cool to hear mesa is doing this in the JP2C from the factory.

Re: Mark V owner review of JP-2C (multi page post)

Ok,I have to ask: has anyone tried a Friedman BE-OD pedal, and is so, tried it with the JP2C, on the Clean channel?

That might be the best of both worlds, Mesa and Marshall

Re: JP2C vs the rest

This is my experience. I've owned 2 Mark IIC+ amps, and sold them both. Both were great amps, no doubt, but not even good 2 channel amps. I could easily get a fantastic lead, crunch or clean tone, from these amps, but without a pedal or two, it was a compromise to get 2 good sounds. The last one I o...

Re: Stiletto Ace - tone for days

For the prices of these amps you can pick them up for used, everyone should own one. I just watched both your videos, great tone and chops, kudos! The Moore song is one of my favorites, but I don't know the second. Sounds like a Vai song. I honestly never understood why Mesa gave up on this series, ...
