Re: MkIIC+ Preamp clipping distortion, troubleshooting tips?

I don't know if what you experience is what I experience with my friend's Zinky amp. I was playing a 4x12" with four 16 ohm Celetion Vintage 30s speakers wired in parallel - series for a 16 ohm load. We got this fizzy distortion. The setting on the Zinky was 16 ohm load. So I wired the 4x12 all in p...

Re: Mk IIB lead channel question

I'm not sure if I could answer your question but I would like to mentioned Mark I, II uses "cascading gain". The lead channel uses the gain (preamp tube) from the "rhythm channel". The lead channel is not independent from the "Rhythm Channel".

Re: Need logo plate for .50 Caliber+ (also presence mod question)

Yeah, that particular logo plate is not available but why not get the same one that;s was on your DC5 has? Those are available at the Boogie on-line store.

There is a custom logo builder on E-Bay Far East, Send them your file from CorelDRAW app.

Re: TV Jones Pickups on a Gretch

Yup, I prefer the stock Filtertron too. For the record the TV Jones is "Magnatron" so not sure how the other TV Jones compared. For my taste the TV Jones was too clean, bright but Filtertron was more Gretsch like how I prefer them. I too want a Gretsch but can't afford "White Falcon" or "Chet Atkins...

Re: Took me 35 years to get a Marshall..now I have two.

So you have a JCM800 and Super Lead. So basically you have 2 of the 3 Marshall classic amps, my favorites. The trifecta would be a Marshall Blues Breaker or JTM45 and you are set.

Re: TremOVerb Combo Speakers: Vin30 + C 90

How'd you like those two MESA's? Other than a Mark IIB my TremoVerb and Maverick are keepers for me. I sold my other Mesa amps. Do you find these two amp are different tone wise but very similar in design e.g. two channels, each with two modes, solid state rectifier / tube rectifiers selector? Enoug...

Re: Does my Road King need servicing? (video showing potential issue)

This is normal. Unless we both are experiences the same problem. The tone controls are interactive. When you lower the treble, the mids and bass will receive more signal and visa versa. Why the design this way is for flexibility. You could have a various settings that makes this amp sound completely...

Re: Maverick 2x12 = Mesa’s version of a Vox AC30?

Unfortunately no, but besides the master volume, it does have a limit control kinda like a second master volume. I know the Lonestar Special is the Mavetick predecessor but it has switching rectifier. The lower wattage 5 and 15 watt uses the tube rectifier and the 30 watt is using diode rectifier. T...

Re: Maverick 2x12 = Mesa’s version of a Vox AC30?

I have both, sort of but not really. The power section of the Maverick is like Vox AC30 but that's where it ends. The stack tone are different. I could get the Maverick to sort of sound like AC30 but if you are an AC30 aficionado it not enough to get the AC30 vibe. Matter of fact I'm thinking of get...

Re: Maverick 1X12 Combo - Need Fuse Installation Help, Pleas

You may have to replace the whole fuse holder with a new one. Like you said, the spring might have come loose and is missing.
