Re: Jam last night, another win for the TC

I have noticed a weaker signal with single coils in my 2017 Strat HSS Elite and 2018 American Tele in the TC-100. And between my LPs, SG, Strats and Tele - I'm enjoying the heck out of playing that Tele! I use a Helix via 4cm and put a Boost pedal (modeled after the Xotic brand) and compression in f...

Re: Jam last night, another win for the TC

The TC-100 is a fantastic amp for any style. I use mine with a Helix via 4CM and any sound is possible. I'd love to have a JP-2C as I hear it's phenomenal for metal. But in all honesty, I'm holding out for the Mark VI. We know it's eventually coming and will probably have MIDI capability. Fingers cr...

Re: TC50 or Mark V

I would say go for the TC-100 if you can - the extra wattage and power selection options lends to more versatility. I loved my Mark V amp, all the options were great - but found myself flipping switches and turning knobs more than playing. The TC is easier to dial in so I definitely spend more time ...

Re: TC-100 almost 2 months

Hey Bandit!! I am loving the 100w power section of the TC-100. I think you're right on describing the TC tone as a Mark/Rectifier mash up. And I'm going to copy your idea and try using midi from my TC-100 thru to my Marshall JVM 205C in - so I can run both in stereo at home. Marshall Boogie! :shock:...

Re: Tc 50 settings (volume iusses?)

I have a doubt about the volume of my mesa tc 50 head! I would like to know if it's a tube problem or of It's normal 0 and the master for each channels about 11.00 and sometimes i have to use the solo best! Is it normal for the tc 50? I had the same volume issue - ended up putting the Master volume...

Re: TC-100.......I knew I should have waited!!

Mine arrived Monday - didn't have time to test it out until last night. WOW!!!! Big difference in tone compared to the TC-50, at least to my ears. I now know my issue with the TC-50 was with the tone section of the 50W power amp - now I know I'm a 100 watt guy - I use a JVM 410 at rehearsal and am p...

Re: Anybody get the TC-100 yet?

Mine will be here Friday/Saturday. Along with a Marshall JVM 215C. :shock: Both from Sweetwater. Then I leave on Sunday to go to Houston, TX for the week - ugh!! I'll have to give them nice play through before I go. Can't wait to hear those 20,7 and 3 watt modes! Would love to hear a comparison of ...

Nice! Let us know what you think.

Are you staying with the EL34 tubes or swapping them out?

I'm going on a business trip to TX for 2 weeks, so Sweetwater is holding the shipping on my TC-100 and JVM215C until 1/18/18 - I'll get it right when I come back - which is gonna be awesome!

I'm particularly interested on your thoughts on the 20, 7, and 3 watt modes.

Re: 2x12 Horizontal Mesa Cab issue - sounds thin/lacks bass

Ok - case closed! It absolutely matters if the cab is on the floor or not. Sounded as expected tonight after installing the casters, setting it up on the floor and putting it to the test. Good bass response! I definitely prefer the 2x12 vertical due to the slant making it easier to hear when standin...

2x12 Horizontal Mesa Cab issue - sounds thin/lacks bass

I was jamming last night and wanted to really hear the difference in my cabinets in my home studio/jam room. I have a 4x12 Straight, 2x12 Straight Horizontal and a 2x12 Slant Vertical - all Mesa cabs with V30's. My setup was the 4x12 straight cabinet on bottom, the 2x12 horizontal straight cab on to...

Re: TC-100.......I knew I should have waited!!

I could not wait so I bought the TC-50. No big deal as I also have two RA100's. As for the power soak, I rarely ever use it in the RA100 but once in a while I have. Seems to work best with SED =C= EL34 tubes, it is okay with the stock EL34's. So far the stock tubes are great in the TC-50. Have not ...

Re: TC-100.......I knew I should have waited!!

I've heard rumors of a James Hetfield IIc+ signature amp, but those are just rumors. It wouldn't surprise me though - out of anyone who has played Mesa's their whole career, Hetfield is deserving of a signature amp. He's definitely one of my favorite rhythm players/songwriters and has great tone - e...
