Re: Modification to move Graphic EQ and/or Reverb after Effects Return

I know nothing about wiring and barely know how to read a schematic with knowledge of Day 1 of electronics class. :lol:

Re: Why no DC info on the M/B site???

The only thing I could find was what years they were made. 1993-1999

Re: Can Boogies be addictive?

Yes, and my particular addiction is the Mark flavor, although I dig the other models also and can see myself eventually having all Marks, and at least one Fillmore, Lonestar, and maybe a Transatlantic or a California. :mrgreen: I'm with you on this. Does having a Quad count as having a Mark II and ...

Spinal Tap Mesa Boogie Sighting

Decided to watch Englands loudest band again for the hundredth time. Never noticed it until now. I'm sure the DVD/BluRay has better quality than the copy I have that someone ripped. VHS maybe? I'm wonder if it's a Mark I or II. AND does it go to 11? :lol: https://i.ibb.co/3vL46KR/vlcsnap-2020-05-21-...

Re: New Quad Owner *with vid*

Have Quad preamp and 295 poweramp which is rare in Denmark. Export 220 volt version. Looking to get service and tubes in the near future. Tried the recording outputs on the Quad alone and it sounds pretty good. This couple may have been together before in the early 1990s when it was new by a guitar...

Re: Mesa Fillmore - Claims it lacks volume/headroom

That's interesting about the Master. I would actually like it if all amps worked the same way. The Boogie stuff I have has that 5% to 95% volume jump from 2.5 to 3.0 :lol: Buddy of mine had the Marshall 4x10. He played an ampeg head through it and I thought it sounded sweet. I'd like to hear it with...

Re: Mesa Fillmore - Claims it lacks volume/headroom

I really wish they would find another way to measure the perceived volume of a guitar amp. Perhaps list dB at certain distances. I gig a Mark IV 90% of the time. I also gig a 40W Traynor YCV40 similar to a Hot Rod Deluxe. I don't play crystal clean, and use pedals for the Traynor. Never had a volume...

Re: Mesa 395 Questions - Speaker load & fuse values

You can't turn on just one side?

I run a Simul 295 with one 8ohm cab, but I'll alternate each side every few gigs/sessions/practices.

The mains fuse holder should be labeled but it's a 6a SB fuse.

Re: Load box Mesa V - Silent recording ... using IRs

No issues so far from my end. I don't have a Mark V, but I do silent recording with a Quad preamp, DC-5 and Mark IV. All with IRs The Recording out sounds as you would expect: Acceptable with some creative EQ but generally sub-par. At least the higher gain channels. With IRs, I'm very happy with the...

Re: New quad - large volume drop after a few minutes

Wow, I had the exact same issue about 5 years ago. Same thing. Brought it to an authorized repair shop. Explained the problem. The tech called me up the next day and said he cleaned it and couldn't recreate the volume drop after playing though it for over an hour. Haven't had the volume drop happen ...

He mentioned red plating on a Mesa Boogie DC3.

Re: The one guitar you regret most parting with?

1984 Gibson Explorer Heritage Series. Busted my butt at my first job pushing carts as a kid for an entire summer.
Cost $525 brand new and the music shop ordered it once I paid $450. I visited that damn guitar for weeks just to look at it.

Had to sell it to get rent money in college.

Re: Volume pedal in the loop

Not sure about the Mark V but on a Mark IV the MASTERS double as the fx send control, and the OUTPUT LEVEL also works as an fx return control. You could try keeping the master on 4-5 while keeping the output on 1-2. Check to see if you hear anything. OR The master on 1-2 and the output 4-5. And chec...

Re: 2:90 12ax7's?

Not sure how similar the guts of a 2:90 are compared to a 295, but I've thrown in what ever 12ax7s I've had into it. I picked up a used 295 back in 01' or 02' which didn't have any 12ax7s in it. I had a pair of Mesa branded ones and pair of Groove Tubes and put them in. I didn't even bother to check...
