Re: Converted IIC+ with Export Transformer

That's a great breakdown on the previous post. Very well done. The export transformer is generally more desirable because it is rarely seen in the US market and is supposed to offer a smooth yet hot lead tone, kind of like the middle ground between the 100 and 105 power transformer. For me, the bigg...

Re: Mesa Triaxis - Metallica "Load" Era Tones

I think you nailed it! I agree with you that those are some of the best tones out there. Very raw yet smooth.

What cab and guitar/pickups did you use?
Do you think you can get that tone out of a regular Mark amp?
Did you doubt track?

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-C...

I've used different Mesa 6l6's in there over the years with no issues.

Re: Thinking of sending my 2 channel Recto to mesa... Though

Probably cheaper to just buy one, no? They come up somewhat often. Or get an F with an OD pedal.

Best Guitar & Pickup combo for a IIc+?

What guitar and pickup combination do you feel is best suited to make a C+ truly shine? I use a PRScu24 with original HFS pickup and it absolutely slays with the Rectifier RevD. It sounds amazing with the C+, but I'm often left tweaking too much and looking for something more. I tried a JP guitar in...

Re: George Lynch's Mesa Dual Rectifier, Rev C

You should consider calling the Mesa factory and telling them the story. I know they've posted on this forum before. See if Mike can take a look at the chassis (perhaps even for free, considering the history etc) and determine if any modifications were done to the amp vs a regular Rev C. We all know...

Re: George Lynch's Mesa Dual Rectifier, Rev C

I saw that post the other day on youtube and didn't realize it was you! This was an amazing find. Did you snag it off ebay? The tone in the video is very, very good. Seems like the room fit the recording perfectly.

Re: Mark I "creamy" Santana tones from a Mark IV

There's a member on here that does a very good job at getting Santana tone out of his Mark 2C+. I hope he doesn't mind me sharing his settings I copied down a while back... o All Pre Volumes on 7, treble exactly on 6 and 1/4 (you can find on my Boogie almost a notch where the treble kicks up and I s...
