Re: Using a pedal switcher and MIDI

You don't need more than one out midi.
I'm using a G System with my TC 50 and the out midi on the G System is all I need.
The TC 50 has an out/thru on it if you need midi control back by the amp as well.

Re: TC-50 Question? What did this amp replace if any?

I went over to the "dark side" for a few years with modeling. I was using the Helix...and getting damn good sounds out of it. And then I woke up one morning and decided it was time to once again use tubes and a heavy 4 x 12 cab. Bought the TC 50, pulled my old Bogner 4 x12 cab out of the cobwebs, an...

Re: TC50 vs Mark V 35

Here is a clear A/B test: https://youtu.be/6mFIddmQ9aM They made part 2 of the video without extra tracks, just guitar. I still prefer the MV:35. I think that number one...the stuff he was playing wasn't really that good to show off a Boogie amp. I'd have loved to hear some long sustained notes tha...

Re: Clean Channel (CH1) way louder than CH2 and CH3?

Mine isn't "way louder"...but yeah, the clean channel does seem to have a lot of volume. And I'm not talking about the perceived difference between clean and distorted. My TC-50 has a loud clean channel. If I put all the three channels with exact identical settings...the clean channel is the loudest...

Re: TC50, tube talk

Interesting. I have no way to do the testing myself...except for what my ears told me. And the Cryotone preamp tubes that I put in V3 and V4 of my TC-50 completely changed the sound for the better. But of course Wathen is a high-end audiophile company whose main focus seems to be all tube amps & spe...

Re: Greenbacks?

I have a Bogner 4X12 cab loaded with Celestion 25 watt Greenbacks. It sounds awesome. It's a slanted cab and in the top two speakers I installed this: https://www.amazon.com/Sonic-Sound-Products-TAS12-Tilt-A-Speaker/dp/B077SH1NVV So I can hear my cab perfectly. Those "tilt-a-speakers" are just plain...

Re: TC50, tube talk

I believe the WCM is a Mullard CV4004. I have some of those. Will have to pop them in and try it out. I use those on the RA100 but CV4004 and the long plate 12AX7 re-issue. I was looking at the website you listed. Seems like they have the Chinse gen 9, Mullard CV4004 or could be Tung Sol as they lo...

Re: TC50, tube talk

I got some incredible results from preamp tubes. I got two Wathen 12AX7-WCM Cryotone preamp tubes and put them in the V3 and V4 positions. The tubes are crazy expensive. But they changed the amp tone in a big way! Super quiet tubes, the cryogenic process they use for them gives them a mid-high boost...
