Re: Used TA-30 Issues Reverb/FX-Loop Noise and Intermittent

I had a very good Mesa certified tech do the fixes. They certainly helped a lot but didn't completely eliminate the noise issue.
I plan on trying some 12at7's in V5 and V6 to see if that will help a bit more, although I don't expect a huge improvement. Good thing I like the amp otherwise.

Mesa Trans Atlantic 30 preamp tube functions ( V1,V2, ect)

I have the above amp and want to swap in some of the preamp tubes I have to get the best ( for me) sound out of it. I have some basic questions on functions of the tubes. I am operating under the assumption that since 12ax7s have two sides, the A and B denote the sides and if the schematic says A&B ...

Re: Tubes for a Mess Boogie Mark Series Amp

If I can throw another question into this - Can any 6L6 Boogie amp use any Mesa Boogie 6L6 tube? In other words does Mesa bias all 6L6 amps the same? I am using 6L6 as the example because I have 2 6L6 Boogies ( MarkIIb and Electra Dyne) but the question could be about EL84 / EL34/ 6V6 Mesa tubes as ...

Re: Alternative Boogies to TA -15 / TA-30?

Thanks! I had a chance to try out a TA-30 and I really liked it. The noise issue ( at least on this one) is not bad at all. I might go ahead and pick it up.

Alternative Boogies to TA -15 / TA-30?

Hi, I have been keen on picking up a used TA-15 or TA-30 as I am looking for a fairly low power Boogie that can do the chimey Vox-ish EL84 thing. The TA-30 concerns me as I have read of some issues with the effects loop and reverb. Since Boogie has such a large number of discontinued models still on...

Re: Mullards?

However, I am still contemplating a quad of Gold Lion KT77s.
Sorry to haul this back from the past but as I am prowling Boogie Board for some tube ideas for my 'Dyne I saw this and have to ask, can the Electra Dyne take a KT 77?

Re: 1x12 extension cab - open, closed, 3/4, or ported?

Good stuff, thanks for all the posts! I did score a 1x12 27" combo with 6L6's. I also found a 3/4 closed back 1x12 cab. Not the matching ED cab ( searched hi and low) but an oversized that matches the combo perfectly. Pics to come. I pulled the Black Shadow and stuck a WGS g12c/s in its place. Very ...

Bias blunders

I found an old thread and revived it, but it was on the Lonestar page - re-posting in the correct thread. I just joined the Electra Dyne party as of last night ! I am bringing this thread back to the top as it relates the issue I discovered when I got the amp home. The bias switch was set to EL34 bu...

Re: Forgot to switch bias switch... did I damage the amp?

I just joined the Electra Dyne party as of last night ! I am bringing this thread back to the top as it relates the issue I discovered when I got the amp home. The bias switch was set to EL34 but the am has 6L6's in it. When I bought the amp I played it for maybe 20 minutes that way. On top of that ...

1x12 extension cab - open, closed, 3/4, or ported?

Hi all, new to the Boogie Board. I have decided on getting an Electra Dyne. Closing in on a couple of 1x12 combos in the area. My question is regarding a 1x12 extension cab for it. I have pretty much searched the entire Electra Dyne category and have gleaned some great information. But there is a lo...

New to board, FX loop question on Mark IIB

Hi all! I am new to the board. I have a Mark IIB combo that I was told received the FX loop mod. The level knob on the back has a dab of white paint ( whiteout?) over the number 8, but no corresponding mark on the chassis to line it up with. I am assuming the mark indicates unity level. My guess is ...
