Mesa Roadster and Stiletto Deuce

Hey guys so I have been working on a crazy idea- one was to make a metal-ized cover of Country Boy Can Survive and second was to track with my Roadster and do all the leads and harmony with the Stiletto- the Stiletto Deuce cuts (no pun intended) right through the mix and found it very useful in a re...

Re: Roadster Effects Loop Problem

Hey bud that sucks about your FX loop issue- might I suggest changing out the V5 12Ax7 (pre-amp tube) that tube in particular drives your fx send and return and could be causing the shenanigans From left to right count over 5 pull that and replace it with another if you have one or if your not depen...

What not to do

Hey guys- I decided to share a quick video I made- of what not to do- Its a slightly comical approach and some are very obvious. I know I have spent countless hours on youtube and forums alike trying to figure out this recording thing- and trust me I have a long long way to go. Many of you in here b...

Re: Major hum with master full and reverb engaged

I would almost bet money that there is an issue with your V4 pre-amp tube. The V4 12AX7 controls or powers the reverb, for your amp If you have a spare 12AX7 pre-amp tube laying around swap it out - if not they are not that expensive.
Hope that helps!

Re: Do Tubes Make that much of a Difference

Cool deal when its time for me to re-tube I'll give JJ's a second look or consideration specially given that you as well are rolling with the roadster

Re: Do Tubes Make that much of a Difference

Correct- from my understanding Mesa has a system they do in which then they brand certain tubes as their own- so your more than likely correct about the origins of said tubes. I can see some validity in swapping the V1 to a Tung-Sol but even then the difference for me in my small world is so small i...

Do Tubes Make that much of a Difference

Ok so I have 2 Mesa Roadsters laying around and both are loaded with different tubes. One is completely loaded with Mesa Branded Tubes (6L6)- the other is a set from Dougs Tubes (6L6) match quad with a mix match going on in the pre-amp section. So I decided to throw together a quick compare/contrast...

Re: attenuator and cab simulation for recording

Im going to selflessly plug for the Torpedo live - you can record with the Torpedo Live as thats what I use it for mainly. I just run a TRS to XLR right to my interface. As for the cab and mic software- Im no computer whizz and often times I am challenged by new whiz bang things but the Torpedo Live...

Mesa vs Orange 2x12 comparison

So I have recently acquired a Mesa 2x12- I have had the Orange 2x12 for years now, and a comparison was inevitable. However much to my dismay I discovered Chinese made V30's in my Orange cabinet which has really thrown me for a loop. Guess thats why from here on out Im sticking strictly with Mesa as...

Re: Help - crackling sound

I would start with your V1 pre amp tube - swap that one out if you have a spare and see if that solves your problem
