Re: My Stiletto Trident and 4x12 Cab..

I've been looking for a nice used one without much luck. I probably will bite the bullet and buy new. I've been using my Acoustic 4x12 with the Stilletto and my 2x12 with my Roadster.

Re: My Stiletto Trident and 4x12 Cab..

Awesome, and welcome! I just got a Deuce II last month. Now I need a Mesa Recto cab to go with it.

Re: Switch to el34 on single recto

I would start by checking the fuse first. Make sure the switch is in the correct position for the tubes you are using.

NAD Stilletto Deuce Stage II

Well I finally got my Stilletto Deuce head I've been wanting since I bought my Roadster head a few years ago! I found a mint one on Ebay with all the original accessories, manual, cover ect. included. I watched it for a couple weeks and forgot about it. Finally saw it was relisted and made an offer ...

Re: EL 34's

Sounds common then! It's a shame, because the first set was the best sounding tubes I have had in the amp.

Re: EL 34's

Now that I have a quad of EH6CA7, will have to squeeze them into the Roadster and see what happens. I tried them in the RA100 combo just for kicks. I did not care for the KT77 in the Roadster but those tubes rocked quite well in the Mark V. I have a quad of JJ 6ca7 and really liked them in my Roads...

Re: Triple Rec vs Studio Preamp

BTW, Studio preamp is NOT the same as the preamp in the Studio/Caliber series of amps.
How does the Studio Preamp sound compared to the Studio .22 amp?

Re: V1 Tube Shield

Makes no difference with or without it on my Roadster Head. First thing I did when I got it was remove it. I noticed no difference either way so it stays off.

Which is fine, but remember Mesa doesn't make tubes. They just test them to fit their amps specs.

Re: NOAD 1986 Mesa Studio Series 22

Looks nice! I had a Studio .22 in standard black tolex without the graphic eq. It was my first Mess actually. I didn't really know how to dial it in at the time and let it go on eBay. I still hope to add a Studio Preamp some day to make up for letting it go.

Re: New tubes to Dual Rectifier Tremoverb

You can run whatever you want in v2-v6 for preamp tubes. Just remember that the cathode follower positions don't like Russian tubes and you will want to run Chinese or Slovakian tubes there.

Re: Carvin amps... what do you think??

I sure would like a new V3 head to go with my other amps! I have the Gen 1 combo with Vintage 30's in it and would like to downsize to a head.
