Re: Is a Mesa Mark IV for me?

I've had two Mark IVs: a wide combo sold for a head for portability. I loved it, but as screamingdaisy mentions, they can be tough to dial-in. My biggest complaint: I'd get a great tone dialed-in today, but tomorrow it would sound meh, so I'd tweak and tweak to get back the tone I loved. I realize t...

Try PM'ing Board member Monsta-Tone (sp?) He knows his way around the DCs.

Remember The Days...?

...when tongues did the talkin'. Click "play hi-fi" and scroll down for lyrics. Rhythm guitar recorded with Strat in to C+ lead channel (delay and reverb only), Lead Drive on 2. Very versatile amp! A good friend recorded three separate lead guitar tracks (never having heard the song) which I blended...

Re: 1978 Super 60 (Mk I) - original owner

Appreciation of fine tube amps is something of an acquired taste; once it's understood no substitute will do.

Do these kids know what a Hemi 'Cuda is? Can they appreciate it, or is it just a smelly, noisy car?

Re: How can I use my DC-5 as a power amp?

To test the loop, couldn't I just run a cable from the Send to Return and see if they work? That might work...I say might because it's a parallel loop. The level or blend pot controls how much of the loop signal is mixed with the dry signal to the output stage. With an effect, you can hear if the l...

Re: Mesa signature amp

if it sounds as good as the c+....does it mean that it will devalued the original? Doubtful. This is now at least the third "modern" Mesa amp boasting a C+ replica. There's more to a C+ than just tone; the originals have a certain feel that I've yet to feel in the Mark V line. The replicas sound gr...

Re: DC3 chanel switch help please!

I have an original footswitch, and when the led blew, the switch for that function stopped working. As riku asked, which footswitch do you have?

Re: NAD Mark IIb

My apologies. I will watch out in the future. :oops: No worries; sorry if it came across as a jab at you. I was criticizing Eurotubes, very knowledgeable tube dealers who really know their stuff and who have helped me several times in the past. It just surprises me that such knowledgeable people wo...

Re: I've just recapped my old mark IIb

A word on cap jobs: While it's true old, caps do wear out, rob tone and can cause damage if they leak or burst, it's not necessary to replace ALL the caps in an amp. Filter and coupling caps are the highest risk/greatest impact, but the other smaller caps don't always need to be replaced. For insta...

Re: NAD Mark IIb

That is a good question. I went to the Eurotubes website and found the following (I added the highlighting): The Mark IIB amps come in 60 and 100 watt versions, with verb and without verb, with and without EQ. Some of them with verb use a 12AX7 (ECC83) and some use a 12AT7 (ECC81) for the verb. Thi...
