Re: Strange Low End Resonance on Modern Mode

Mesa support is kinda blowing me off saying its normal. So i prepared this video. Is this normal? https://youtu.be/qZjgUg1u1eY Sorry, I did not see this video until after posting. It sounds perfectly normal to me and is typical of an amp without reverb to sound that way. Modern pulls the negative f...

Re: Strange Low End Resonance on Modern Mode

I have two questions regarding your issue as I have had quite the same thing happen but with a Mark IVb wide body combo used with a 1999 oversized slant front 412. This was prior to getting the Multi-watt Dual Rectifier or the Roadster. I also have a 2014 standard slant front 412 and a new 2019 stan...

Re: Royal Atlantic Bliss

My pair of Royals definitely surprised me when I got my first 7 string guitar. OMG does that sound incredible. I am surprised how tight the amps sound on the red channel with the low b string. The tubes I am using are working out great. I have gotten some NOS tubes in after posting the original thre...

Re: NGD my first two 7 string axes

Most important.... what amps these two axes sound the best? My favorite rig setup is a pair of Royal Atlantics RA-100. One is the half stack you see in the picture in the original post. The other is the RA-100 combo combined with the Mesa Recto Horizontal 212 cab. I am using a Mesa Switch track to r...

NGD my first two 7 string axes

Normally I would have just done one then the other since they were purchased at different times, well say 2 weeks from each other. Bought the Kiesel Vader 7 string first. The one on the left. Specifications: Black Limba Body sides, maple neck through with zebra wood fretboard and stainless steel jum...

Re: TC-50 fixed and sounding just as good as new

Been a while since I logged in.... I think mace has the correct answer. Some other ideas, stuff some compressible foam behind the pickup, it needs to be very compressible, if it is too stiff it will push the pickup out. I had several guitars that would just roll into feedback and was more so an issu...

Re: TC-50 Guidance

Yes it gets close but.... that recording is definitely processed as that is not a single track recording as it does sound like there is track doubling or some sort of stereo effect which will change how things sound especially with other instruments in the mix. I did not see any mention how it was r...

Re: Roadster power tube options

I have only seen them on the website. I do not have any JJ power tubes to look at. Besides that, when I was in California at the Hollywood store I had asked the product specialist what would be coming from Mesa that is new or in the works that he would be permitted to disclose. I was told that Mesa ...

Re: TC-50 Guidance

To some the TC series may be their dream, to others it may be something a bit too different and what to expect or how to set the controls to get the sound you need. I had my first hand experience with the Royal Atlantic so the TC series was not too far off from that in terms of how to dial in the se...

Re: Tung Sol 6V6 for TC50

Mesa offers the JJ version of 6V6s which can handle the 420V plate voltage (based on what others have measured the plate voltage to be for an EL34 tube in the circuit and since it is the same bias setting, I would assume the plate voltage to be about the same but could be different with the 6V6 tube...

Re: Mesa MarkV / Saturation 'mod'

Great to see this thread still catching people's eye. Just saw it referenced over on a different forum too. Helps to prove the AT7 works as described for sure! I have been sharing this thread with others in the Mesa boogie fan club on Facebook. It is good to see this thread is still growing and man...

Re: External compressor you use w/your Mark V

I use a Strymon OB.1 compressor. Keeps the tone uncolored and is not very noisy. Sustain is good too and it also has a clean boost. Works with bass too but got it mainly for use with a Stratocaster. Never really needed the compressor with the Mark V but once I tried it, hard to play without it.

Re: Need help please: Mark V or Fillmore?

I probably would have chosen the Mark V:35 but the V:25 sounds good too. From what I have gathered by others, the EL84 based Mark amps have the tone similar to the real IIC+ amps from the 80's so that would be similar to the JP-2C as well. Hope your decision meets your expectations.

Royal Atlantic Bliss

It has been a while since I fired up the RA100 combo. I have been running the half stack more so since getting a Multi-watt Dual Rectifier which prompted me to get another 412 cab to go with it. Before that I was using the 412 that I normally run with the RA100 head. My other 412 cab was rebuild wit...

Re: Roadster power tube options

If you want something a bit different, you may want to try the Mesa STR445 which is the JJ6L6 tube. Mesa is now offering JJ and Tung Sol tubes in the power tube line up, all tested and certified by Mesa. Check out their online store on the Mesa website. I have not tried any of the new offerings or f...
