Re: Triple Rectifier + Tubescreamer + Solo boost = No headroom... Please Help!!!

You can you use turning on and off the effects loop to get different volumes.

You can get as much volume cut or boost as you want with the effects loop method.

Are you using two channels ?
Set the channels similar with two Orange channels.... One set for Rhythm...the other set for Lead.

Re: Favorite Overdrive/Distortion pedal

Still love the RAT and Fulltone pedals ....but now using for boosting a KHDK No.1, No.2 and Ghoul Screamer. The voice of these pedals works for me with my Tremoverb. The Ghoul Screamer with with all switches up TS808. My favorite probably being No.2 in the HI mode - adding saturation, compression an...

The voice of these pedals works for me with a Rectifier. The Ghoul Screamer with with all switches up TS808. My favorite pro...

Re: Mixing Str420 and Str440 6L6 GC tubes

It won't be a problem. All the Mesa tubes are in the same range.

Put them in pairs....inside and outside pairs.

Re: Mesa Mark IV A fx loop problem

Every pedal has different input levels....you need to adjust your amp different for every pedal.

Re: Mesa Mark IV A fx loop problem

You might be sending too hot of a signal to the delay.... Read the manual to properly set levels.

R1 Master / R2 Master / Lead Master these control the send level in the effects loop. If you set them too high for your pedal it is going to distort.

Re: Is anyone playing blues with a Mk IV?

The lead channel can do excellent blues.

Turn off the GEQ.
Lead Gain 5-7
Lead Drive 2-4

Use your guitar volume and other controls.

Re: Favorite Overdrive/Distortion pedal

The RAT (Vintage Big Box) I'm using these days I bought new over twenty years ago. First time I used one was in 1981 with a JCM 800. I have always loved the RAT. Probably my favorite MESA to use with the RAT is my Heartbreaker. It just sounds amazement with this amp...EL34 or 6L6.
