Re: Scored an AMAZING deal on a Roadster Dual Rectifier 2x12

I commented on your HFC post, but man! That ranks right up there for Mesa deals!

Re: Which Boogie Amp?

My cover band does everything from surf rock, 60s RnR and R&B, B52s to OK Go and I'd highly recommend a Lonestar Special. Mine handles everything we do it, sounds fantastic doing it, and doesn't break my back hauling it in the house at 3:00am after a gig. I use a TC G-System in 4CM to control every ...

WTB: MIDI Switcher for Mk IV

I've gone whole hog back into Mesa amps and recently bought a Mk IVa short head, and now I'd like to control it from my G System. I could do with a 4x switcher and control a 5th switch the GS, but would consider a 8x switcher, as well.

*Edit*
Bought a new Voodoo switcher.

Re: NAD: Back in the fold

Nice! Welcome back to the Mesa fold! Thanks! It's nice to be back, although, the past few days I've really felt like a Mesa noob, because I only had about an hour to really mess with it before practice on Sunday and my tone was okay, but uninspiring to say the least. Like many before me, I was ques...

Re: NAD: Back in the fold

I believe there's a jack on the bottom of the chassis to plug a footswitch for toggling the reverb. Right you are! I had just looked at the tube layout diagram in the manual, which didn't show the jack, and didn't read the reverb section itself. Thanks! I had a chance to hook it up in 4CM and man d...

NAD: Back in the fold

Several years ago I joined an instrumental surf band and needed a "proper" amp for it so I sold my Mk IV to get a '74 Super Reverb. Say what you will about the wisdom of it, but I've got to admit that SR ranked right up there as one of the finest sounding amps I've ever owned. As long as you could t...

Re: Thinking of Rejoining the Club: Recommendations Requeste

I had an LSS. It was a sweet amp. At 30w it "gives up the goods" a little easier than the LSC, and if you were to tell me you wanted to play southern rock or blues I'd tell you you were looking at the right amp. But you're telling me you're playing funk and soul so I'm going to recommend the LSC. G...

Re: Thinking of Rejoining the Club: Recommendations Requeste

Thanks guys. Elvis, I had forgotten about the Blue Angel. Good comparison with the '65 DR. I had a '66 DR, but I must be one of the 10 people on earth who aren't a fan of that amp. I tried out a ElectraDyne at home a few years ago, and while I dug it, I think it would be a little too loud for this b...

Thinking of Rejoining the Club: Recommendations Requested

My current band calls for a clean tone 90% of the time (We do early to mid-sixties rock and soul) . My preference is for an edge of breakup, "hot clean", with a good bit of my playing being on the neck pickup of either my Strat or Jazzmaster. I like that quintessential Fender woody and spanky tone w...

Re: DC5 Owners: which one do you have?

I don't have a 5 any longer, but mine was an A. I prefer a gainier clean that can be controlled with the guitar's volume, not a high headroom clean, so the A version was perfect.

When I got the DC-10 from Monsta-tone, I had him mod Ch1 to sound more like an A. That was a great amp.

Re: my C+ Coli that survived an f-5 twister

All sorts of awesome.

I'm happy everything worked out with the Coli, but seeing that pic again and knowing you and your family were able to walk away from it has got me all verklempt.

And God bless all that didn't.

PSA: Subway Rocket and 50 Caliber + at local store

Walked into my favorite local haunt and saw a rack-mounted 50 Cal + head and a Subway Rocket combo, both in good shape. $550 marked on both. Owner says he will ship. Don @ Highland Music in Birmingham, AL. 205-254-3288
