Re: Reverb not working

A crash when you rock it or bang it indicates that there is output from the tank. The tank can still have an issue. I would try the tank from another amp.

Re: Lonestar problem

Does the amp hum if you put the 6L6s back in it? Did you get the correct version of the Yellow Jacket (I don't know a lot about them, just that there are several different versions).

Re: Reverb not working

Does the reverb "crash" when you rock the amp?

Re: TA 15 mods?

I haven't seen any mods for the TA15. I have a TA15 because I use less gain than many here.

Re: Cathode or Fixed?

It depends on the model. I think the California Tweed and Fillmores afixed biased and the TA-30 is fixed or cathode biased depending on the mode it's set at. Detailed information is either on Mesa's site or in the manuals (probably both).

Re: Toning down reverb in Fillmore 50

You could try a 12AU7 in V5. Or a tube that's 1/2 12AX7 and 1/2 12AU7 in V4. Or both.

Re: Getting a great overdrive sound with Express 5:25+ combo

I've got an older 5:25 non-plus 1x10" combo. It's a different amp, but using the Contour (preset scooped GEQ) sparingly (I think I have it set around 11:00) takes some of the boxiness out of the Blues mode. Maybe the GEQ in the Plus can be used in a similar way. Also, changing the speaker made a hug...

Re: Subway Rocket non-reverb

I had one for a while and thought the clean sound was a little lacking and the OD sound was kinda "middy". I liked the contour sound. I sold it when I built a Mojotone Princeton Reverb. I think I would've liked it better with reverb. I think Express 5:25 is an improvement over this amp (though it co...

Re: "Tweed Power" huh?

It's probably a prototype. I used to design consumer products and pics were taken of prototypes before production was available and used in promotional materials.

Re: Dropped my MarkV

I just received a Mesa Express combo that was shipped loose in a box full of busted up styrofoam. The amp was covered in white stuff, but was fine. The recessed knobs and heavy grill cloth that Mesa uses survived the test.

Re: NCD

I had an old Thiele cab with an EVM12L that I used to use with a DC-3. The combination of the combo's open back and the ported cab was great! I miss that cab!

Re: Add a Lead Master to your Studio 22? Yes or No?

I found my 22+ to be a lot more usable than my 22 because of the Lead Master. A preset volume for the lead mode doesn't really work. The GEQ on the 22 helped, but I still found the lead mode on the 22 to be way too loud at home and a little too quiet with a band.
