Re: New Mesa amp "California Tweed (6V6 4:Forty)"

Yeah a new Mark series amp would be nice. These more vintage style amps don’t appear to get much interest on the board here, maybe they sell better than I would think but something a little more modern and versatile would be to my liking.

Re: Mark IIC/C+ and III Power Section 1.5K Resistor Placemen

Hey guys recently purchased a C+, not an upgrade, and sent it to Mike B for complete check up, much to my surprise he stated there were a couple of versions of the C+ as it evolved and asked if I want d mine changed as mine is a later serial number towards end of run. I will include below his email ...

Re: Maintenance For Mark IIC+

I just shipped my chassis from my IIC+ combo to boogie, super over packed with tons of high density foam and bubble wrap. I used a box from a 1x12 Boogie cab and separately box my tubes in it. From Northen Michigan to Petaluma insured for $3,000 was about a $110. I could’ve used a smaller box but to...

Re: NAD: iic+

I was late to the party on these as well, but they are a bit of a shocker for those of us just getting them. Congrats on the amp

Re: Just bought a 2C+

I haven’t A/B’d them yet as my C+ needs to be sent off ASAP for routine maintenance and I don’t want to push but the 20 or so minutes I spent with with I Prefer the C+ gain structure over my JP, although quite close there’s something a little extra the old C+ has the JP is missing, could be Simul-Cl...

Re: Just bought a 2C+

Got my amp tonight and wow! It’s a combo made in 02/85 and looks damn near the way it would’ve come off a showroom floor. I’m not sure how to post a pic but minus one small blemish on the speaker fabric it’s dead mint. The sound is absolutely incredible the PT105 lives up to the hype and the STR415 ...

Re: Just bought a 2C+

I’m gonna ship the chassis into Mesa and have a tune up on it, I want it to sound as good as it looks. Thanks for the advice on the tubes

Re: Just bought a 2C+

It has the switch I was just a little a little concerned with the quad of 6L6’s, thanks for the reply that makes me feel more at ease. It’s gonna be the longest week ever awaiting its arrival.

Just bought a 2C+

Hey guys I just found a 2 C+ that’s super clean and I bought and am anxiously awaiting its arrival. The guy I purchased from bought it new and had had stored in the anvil flight case for years and it looks super clean as he stated he only put a few hours on it in its entire life. It’s a combo with G...

Re: Ernie Ball Music Man Majesty Monarhy

Actually I sold it, I couldn’t get past the pickups. I could EQ for that guitar but all of my others sounded like dirt so I opted to keep all my others and let the Majesty go. It looked like a nightmare to change them out.

Re: Anyone trying the PRS MT-15?

For anyone interested the little MT15 is a powerhouse of an amp. Tons of low end, gobs of gain and for the money great build quality. It has the low end and note definition I had hoped for out of my Diezel. It’s not overly compressed and really pairs well with my 2X12 vertical cab. It’s a winner in ...

Re: JP2C Closest to C+ IMO

I pull presence and gain and feel like the JP has and edge over the C++ I own. It has a touch more authority in the low end that I like, I’ve changed tubes in the ++ and tweaked and they are oh so close and in a blind test through the same cab I’m not sure I could could hardly distinguish the differ...
