Not the cheapest EQ pedal but its a good one! Before the Mesa i had the Boss and MXR EQ pedal but the Mesa doesn't add any hiss or other noise. I'm from the Netherlands btw.

Re: Mesa 5 band graphic eq pedal and the lonestar

Has anybody used this combination? I experienced the builtin eq with the JP2C and it is dramatic. How would that pedal work on the Lonestar? I've wrote something about this combination in a topic (link below) about some people finding the Lone Star Drive channel to bassy. I use the 5-band EQ pedal ...

Re: Differences in tone 1x12 vs 2 x12 with LSC. Opinions sou

The effect is what you hear and feel when you are playing. Imo the LSC benefits from a bigger cab because this amp has very strong low/mids so it can 'breath' more if the cab enclosure is bigger. The fact that you are using open cabs helps for creating this bigger sound with less prominent low end s...

Re: Differences in tone 1x12 vs 2 x12 with LSC. Opinions sou

Finally I've decided to to have my beloved LSC 2 x 12 combo converted to a head and cab, as I can no longer cope with the weight of the combo. My final decision is whether to go with a 2 x 12 cab, or use only one of the speakers in a 23" wide 1 x 12 format. The 1 x 12 option appeals again primarily...

Re: Lonestar Classic - too much bass on drive channel - SOLU

I've read this 'issue' before but when i look at the frequencies within my DAW when playing channel 2 on my LSC i see lots of activity within the low/mid frequency range which you can't dial out with just the LOW or MID EQ knobs on the amp. You can only add more treble to balance it out. Its mention...

Re: 2006 Lonestar -- fan running causes a buzz in the speake

Only thing which i can think off, maybe one of the preamp tubes is microphonic and picks up the magnetic field from the fan internal parts? Tap with a pencil lightly the preamp tubes to find out if a preamp tube is causing this problem.

Re: Lonestar + Graphic EQ

EQ might help sculpting your tone. I don't think channel 2 of the LSC is too bassy. Around 9-10 o'clock with medium gain settings it sounds very warm with plenty of definition. I sometimes use the Xotic RC boost to give it a tad more grit with the bass knob rolled back around 11 and the treble aroun...

Re: Lonestar 2.0, will it ever happen?

When the first LoneStar came out there were several updates and revisions over the years, even some minor changes on the second channel. The later added class A - 10 watt setting you may call the LSC Mark II version. Its a classic and going for a 50 watt smaller version would be pointless imo as the...

Re: lonestar - loss of volume in clean channel

Yep! Also i don't like Mesa's C90 speakers which come stock with the LSC combo's. A separate cab is your best bet and you can always switch later on if desired.

Re: LSC + Bogner La Grange = OMG!!!!!!!!

After some more experimentation with the Lonestar drive channel 2 and the Bogner La Grange on channel 1 (clean) i came to the conclusion that the Lonestar is capable of getting similar Marshall plexi drive tones like the La Grange with the advantage that the Lonestar is all tube driven goodness!

Re: Lone Star channel 1 weirdness

Microphonic tubes. Squealing sounds can happen when preamp tubes go bad or if you use to much preamp gain. For the reverb issue the tube should also be replaced for a new one. I would advise to install a new set of fresh preamp tubes.

Re: Lone Star channel 1 weirdness

OK, so I got this Lone Star. On Channel 1, I'm getting beautiful, big full clean tone. I'm loving life! Then after 5 or so minutes of playing, and without touching any knobs on either guitar or amp, my big full tone goes somewhat muffled, a teeny bit of volume loss, and a bit more gain most noticea...

Re: lonestar - loss of volume in clean channel

Most likely a bad preamp tube! Did you bought the amp new or second hand? If new and not a half year old you should contact Mesa for a new set of tubes!
