Re: NAD - Lone Star Classic 410 Combo

Cool! Never seen a 4x10 Lonestar before. Does it come with its own sack-truck to move it around? :lol:

Re: Delay issues

Although I’ve owned my Lonestar a while now, I only recently discovered why my delays sounded distorted in the effects loop. Not sure if this applies to the MkV as well, or other MBs, but each channels master volume on the Lonestar also controls the signal strength through the loop. If you have the ...

Re: Big Blue Pig Soon To Be a Head

Well, Zilla cabs here in the UK certainly know their stuff. My Lonestar chassis and reverb tray transferred over perfectly to my new cab. No more broken back :mrgreen:

Hello?

I must say, this is a very quiet corner of the Boogie Board. Maybe we have learned all there is to know about the Lonestar and, due to the models’ sheer reliability no-one has any problems to report? :?: :mrgreen:

Re: Came back home to the Lonestar Classic. Feels good! New

Okay, I appreciate this is an old post, but having converted my Blue Pig 2x12 combo to a more manageable head, I was browsing back through the previous posts and am intrigued by the OP’s impressive setup here. My question is, assuming each of these 1x12 cabs are rated at 8 ohm, would they each then ...

Big Blue Pig Soon To Be a Head

I have just joined a busy weekend gigging band, where my gorgeous big LSC ‘Blue Pig’ 2x12 combo excels in the wide variety of material covered. However, although no weakling, I am no longer a spring chicken and hauling the Pig around twice a week, albeit in a flight case, I do fear for my back. So, ...

Re: Questions for People with Both LSC and LSS Experience

I totally agree about only using Ch2 for lead. I get tremendous crunch/OD rhythm sounds using an OCD in Ch1, then for lead/soloing change to Ch2 and a treble boost (in my case a Phil Hilborne Fat TB). The TB doesn’t try to colour the sound like an OD pedal and, for my tastes, nails the tone in my he...

Amazing player. This is his website (the treble booster can be found in the ‘shop’ section).

Re: New Found Love for Mesa Lonestar

Yes, I totaaly agree about the Lonestar liking boost pedals. For my lead sound, I experimented at length with the pedal setup I had successful used with my Marshalls, i.e. OCD into the ‘overdrive’ channel for a soaring lead tone. However, Into the Lonestar’s second channel, I found the OCD dominatin...

Re: New Found Love for Mesa Lonestar

I’m relatively new to a gorgeous LSC 2x12 as well. Had to get a flight case to transport it to gigs though as that single strap on the top does not make carrying it easy.
