Re: TC compared to Royal Atlantic- Similar?

The interesting thing about the RA vs TC is that most of the difference you're hearing is the difference in the power section. The preamps on the two are the same with the exception of the the extra master and separate tone controls on the red channel of the TC. It's amazing how much difference the ...

I love mine, it's great if you like Vox tones. I had a combo for a whlie, then sold it to buy a head. I wish Mesa would come out with an updated version like they did with the Royal Atlantic.

No but you can call Mesa with your serial number and they should be able to tell you.

Re: TA30 Giving Out

hmm... any suggestions on the best place to buy a phase inverter tube for the ta30? I've never replaced one, don't know what I'm doing heh. Any Mesa dealer should have them. It's a 12ax7. It will be the 4th preamp tube over from the input side. If you have a Mesa authorized service person close by ...

Re: TA30 Giving Out

Swap,out your phase inverter tube with a new one. The TA has a Post Phase Inverter master volume on the Vox channel so it pushes the phase inverter tube pretty hard. My TA started doing the same thing (volume dropping, dull tone) and a new phase inverter tube fixed me right up.

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

100/150 watt TC makes perfect sense for tune down metal guys. I play more old school stuff so for me the 50 power section in the TC-50 is fine because I like a little power amp breakup and don't run the gain that high, but a bigger power section would keep things tighter for the tune down uber gain ...

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

Set your Grid Slammer with the tone on noon, gain all the way off, output wide open and compare that to the Tight/Drive switches on the TC-50 and see what you think. 8)

Where did you get this info? Do you have a copy of the schematic? Which switch are you talking about?

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

Bandit, you're GASsy.. I didn't buy one, but I played the heck out of a couple of them. IMO they are an RA50 with some new features and without the power soaks. This is very true, plus it's got a punchier, clearer power section compared to the RA. I've owned the RA since it came out and always felt...

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

I sold my Mark V to get the TC. I'd been using the V for several years and I liked it, but the TC is more the sound I hear in my head.

Re: RA-100. Narrowing down the faulty tube?

If it's happening on both channels try replacing V3, V6 or V7 as these are the preamp tubes that are in the circuit no matter which channel you're on.

I've got a RA-100, and I have a TC on order, so hopefully I'll be able to give you an answer soon!

FS: pair of 16 ohm C90 Black Shadow speakers

I have a pair of 16ohm Celestion C90 Black Shadow speakers for sale. These came out of my new Lonestar 212 cab and have very little play time on them, probably not even broken in yet. $150 plus actual shipping cost. Message me for pics or to figure shipping.

Re: FS: Mesa Royal Atlantic RA100 head

Seriously I do like the RA, but I have a couple of other amps I use more and need to cut back a bit.
