Re: My Mesa Boogie Mark III fan connector is broken. Help?

If you want a whole new cord, you could get this and just use the cord and toss the fan. It's the same. http://www.ebay.com/itm/171643499219?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT I don't think the Mark III fan outlet is polarized, in which case the fat prong won't fit. I could ...

Re: My Mesa Boogie Mark III fan connector is broken. Help?

Hi guys, Recently I broke one of the two connectors of my fan as in the picture. http://i.imgur.com/qnUyMZ6.jpg Can someone tell me how to search for a replacement? What is this connector type called? Those plugs are spliced on at Mesa. Take that cable to a hardware store. Look for someone wearing ...

Re: Extension Cab for MKIV combo

OK, couple things. First, you have one 16 ohm speaker and one 8 ohm speaker. On a Mark IV, you're going to want to hook each speaker up to each of the two "4 ohm" speaker out jacks. These are designed to hook up two 8 ohm speakers (or two 8 ohm cabs). Normally, you would un-plug the internal combo s...

Re: Warm up time for a Mark amp?

Mesa says 30 second warmup, but what would they know, they only designed the durn things. As for hanging upside down, etc., the first Boogies were modded Princetons, which, surprise!!! have hanging tubes. It wasn't broke, and they didn't fix it. Once they got into the "real" amp head business, like ...

Re: Mark III

Power is the same, 75 watts (85 for greenies). Tone is the difference between 6L6's and EL-34's.
Generally speaking, 6L6 is the Fender sound. EL-34 is the Marshall sound.
Mark III Simul-Class is the Boogie sound.

Re: Mark III

Yes, the switch on a 60/100 model will say "60/100". Most, if not all wide heads will have this switch on the front panel. To add to the confusion, these say "Full/Half Power". They are still either 75/15 (Simul-Class) or 60/100. The wide, or "long" head, is identified by eight knobs on the front p...

Re: 8 Ohm cab in the 4 Ohms out is OK? studio 22

You should have *two* four Ohm speaker outs. Run each 8 Ohm speaker from those two jacks. Take the internal speaker out of the 8 Ohm jack, and plug it into one of the 4 Ohm speaker outs. Plug the extension cab into the other 4 Ohm speaker out. I know it sounds like you are now running *two* four Ohm...

Re: Fan replacement Mark II. Ampere? wattage?

I'm not sure exactly which amp the fan in my photo is from originally, as I purchased it separately as a spare. My Mark III fans have the same specs. Be aware that any parts than can be unscrewed, unattached, modified, changed, etc., probably have been, especially on older amps. Don't assume any par...

Before throwing money at the problem, I should think the first question would be, "How far away are your ears from the speaker?"

Re: Can I use a volume pedal in the FX loop?

You need the low impedance type of volume pedal. The high impedance models are for using between the guitar and the amp input.
For example:
Ernie Ball model 6181 is 25K (low impedance).
Ernie Ball model 6180 is 250K (high impedance).
Roland (Boss) makes similar pedals.

Re: Bedroom Volumes and Assorted Dumb Questions

A volume pedal in the loop does the same thing as the Master volume.
