Re: Loss of gain

I'm looking for ideas of why it may not be working so that I have a better understanding of what needs to be fixed........not life lessons. Thanks for the "productive" conversation everyone.

Re: Loss of gain

Well, I just looked and 2 of the 5 pre-amp tubes are not glowing. Mind you that they are relatively new. So I took 2 of the old ones and put them in and they are not glowing as well. They are the first 2 going from left to right. Which happen to be the ones that deal with the input for all 3 channel...

Re: Loss of gain

Yea, he is a certified Mesa Tech. The Channel switch wasnt the problem but the Mole-X connector was backward. Ok, easy fix but still now theres bigger issues. It worked perfectly fine before I took it in. Now it has issues? Bunch of bull if you ask me.......

Re: Loss of gain

Well, I did take in and got it back after about 3 weeks. They said nothing was wrong with it but they cleaned it up and did a basic service. So the money spent wasnt completely wasted. I assume I was either hearing things or I had a bad cable or something. So, I got it back this Wednesday and it pla...

Re: Loss of gain

Ok. thanks for the help. I didnt mean to sound arrogant in the other post. It was just that I knew the risks of going into the amp without the proper tools and experience. But I was just looking to see if I couldn't find the problem and then if I couldn't fix it send it to a tech knowing what the pr...

Re: Loss of gain

When all else fails I'll take it to a tech. But, for now I'll replace the switch on my own. Less money I have to pay. Thanks for the concerns though.

Re: Loss of gain

Ok. I had called Mesa Boogie customer service to ask for advice and I got the usual "take it to a technician". I did find out that my Triple Rec. was made in 2005. I called every tech within a reasonable distance and they all said it would take about 2 weeks or that they are backed up for 2 weeks. B...

Loss of gain

Dear Mesa Boogie I have a Triple Rectifier and have experienced an issue where I lost a large amount of gain and sustain on my distortion channel, even with an overdrive pedal. I looked into it and found that it could be the pre-amp tubes. I ordered them and replaced them. It improved the sound a li...
