Re: Which attenuators?

For convenience, I’ve been gigging a Helix for the past 18 months, but at home I really love playing my LSC - straight in no effects. Just wondering if anyone uses an attenuator with their Lonestar, or any Mesa for that matter and, if so, which one? There are a lot of choices out there and some are...

Hmmm.

Seems like maybe we have different opinions about how a reverb should sound. Or maybe they are different. If only we could have a large-scale shootout.
When you say "cranked" do you mean turned all the way up? I've never run my reverb that way. Mine's set between 11:00 and 1:00 usually.

Re: LSS Reverb seems not so great - What don't I know?

Interesting.
I have a 2005 Lone Star (Classic) version 1 that I purchased used a few years ago and to my ears it has the best onboard reverb I've ever heard.

Volume between channels

I've got a 2005 Lonestar version 1, (blue pig). I've had it since 2015 and have pretty much always had the drive engaged on channel two. I was just doing some experimenting with taking the drive out of the circuit. I set up both channels identical with gain full on both. According to the manual, "Se...

The beauty of the LSC is that you can run 6L6s, EL34s, 6V6s, or EL84s.

Just for the clarification, you can't run EL84 in LSC. LSS only runs them.
Wasn't aware that you could use 6V6s either. Mine only has a 6L6/EL34 switch.

Re: Score or what?

Yes you did score big time. Even a better deal than the blue 2005 LSC 1x12 I got for $650. I've never done any mods to mine and I'm satisfied with it. I run both channels at 100 watts and it sounds great at any volume. I don't find a need for an attenuator. Each channel has its own master volume and...

SPAM

I tried to report an obvious spam post a couple days ago and it said it was already reported.
The post is still there.

Re: Hello?

I must say, this is a very quiet corner of the Boogie Board. Maybe we have learned all there is to know about the Lonestar and, due to the models’ sheer reliability no-one has any problems to report? :?: :mrgreen: The whole board is kind of a ghost town. I can't believe how little chatter there has...

Re: NAD - Lone Star Classic 410 Combo

I've never seen a 4x10 version. What speakers does it come with? Two Jensen P10R and two Vintage Black Shadows I would bet it had four Black Shadows originally and the previous owner replaced two with the Jensens. I wonder if the Black Shadows are the same as the 10" in my Subway Blues. It's an Emi...

Re: NAD - Lone Star Classic 410 Combo

I'll bet that sounds great. I hope it has wheels. My Lonestar 1x12 is heavy enough.

Re: Fender guy here, went with a LSC to pair with my DRRI

I've been running both channels at 100w and it sounds great at any volume. Fantastic reverb controllable on each channel and 2 voices.

Re: Fender guy here, went with a LSC to pair with my DRRI

You got a good deal--Even if you only use it for the clean channel, which to me is one of the best out there. If you didn't get the user manual, I would download one here: http://mesaboogie.com/media/User%20Manuals/Lonestar.pdf The manual is useful for the interactive tone controls and has many usef...
