Re: Running two 8 ohms cabs on my Tc-50

Could one of the cabs be wired out of phase?

TC100, 6V6, Creamback M65’s. Glorious.

I picked up a new Avatar Vintage 212 loaded with g12m65 creambacks a couple weeks ago and am really loving it. I was using the Mesa Vertical 212 with V30’s and it was a little harsh for what I was after, which is a more vintage flavor. The lower sensitivity of the creambacks and the lower output of ...

Re: N A D: TC-100

Love mine. Sold my Mark V to fund it. I’m think my amp gas may be cured.

Re: Weird Bird Like Swirly Chirping

Did it do this with other amps? I’d reach out to TC and see what they say. Maybe you have an odd defect.

I’m surprised you need the Decimator with the Triple Crown. I have the TC100 head, and it’s dead quiet alone, or with my Helix in 4CM.

Re: Clean Channel (CH1) way louder than CH2 and CH3?

Try swapping pre-amp tubes around and see if things change. Check the manual for the tube function chart. V1 is clean only, as is v2. Try swapping v1 or v2 with v3 or v4 and see if the situation flips.

Re: Reverb & FX On At Power Up

Cool, thanks. I’ll flip ‘em on on my TC100 before I fire it up today.

Re: Reverb & FX On At Power Up

I thought that was for when not using foot switch. If it’s on and foot switch is hooked up, does it come up on, but is footbswitchable from there?

Re: Speaker Cab

I picked up the TC-100 recently and have been using it with my Friedman Runt horizontal 212 with v30s. I ordered the Mesa vertical 212 yesterday and expect it on Monday. I’ll report back after I get it.

Re: TC25, 3 channel, verb, 25/10 watt - Any chance?

Tried out the 6V6 tubes and am going to stick with them. I also had a set of SPAX7’s that i very briefly had in my Mark V 90 watt head, but I yanked them out when I sold it. Those are in all spots but the AT7 spot. Im really glad I decided to get this head. Dead quiet, and inspiring tones. Currently...

Re: Newb Question

Either of the speaker outs on the head is fine. They are in parallel. Assuming it’s a Mesa 212, set the head for 8 ohm.

Re: TC25, 3 channel, verb, 25/10 watt - Any chance?

Head came in today and I'm really glad I pulled the trigger on it. The master volume is simply fantastic. I usually use a Rivera Rockcrusher to tame things to the volumes I use, but there's no need at all with the TC100. It will be a while before I try the 6V6's, as I'm loving how it sounds with the...

Re: TC25, 3 channel, verb, 25/10 watt - Any chance?

Well, Sweetwater made my decision that much easier, with 36 month 0% financing on Mesa, which I've never seen before. Ordered the TC100, a quad of Mesa 6V6's, and a spare 12AT7 just to have one in stock. I have a set of 7 SPAX7's from when I unloaded my Mark V head, and still have a quad of brand ne...

Re: TC25, 3 channel, verb, 25/10 watt - Any chance?

Thanks all. I'm leaning pretty heavily towards the TC100 and if I do that I will certainly get a set of 6V6's to go with it.

TC25, 3 channel, verb, 25/10 watt - Any chance?

Wondering what the likelihood of a 25/10 watt TC appearing in the future is? Ideally, also with an onboard 5 band. Sadly, I'm thinking slim to none, but I can hope right? I absolutely love crunch on the Mark Five 25 that I already own, and I tend to go more Marshall flavored in my amp voicing. I'm n...

Re: Tube Swap Mark V-35 head

I went back to the Mesa (JJ) preamps in my Mark V and V:25, and plan to stick with them. I'm done tube rolling in these heads and will stick with the Mesa branded. In my Marshall I prefer Chinese from a reliable tester such as Ruby, TAD, Groove (less so lately) or other.
