Re: My Mk5:25 is great, but DI and reverb are poor.

I can get pretty strong reverb out of mine. It's kinda harsh reverb, but it's strong.

Re: Lonestar special annoying noise/hum

Have you ruled out interference from an outside source and tried the amp in a different outlet and location?

Re: Questions about the utility of a fan in a MarkIII and SOB

Consider a quieter fan. The fan in my MkV:25 combo is very quiet.

Re: Left my amp powered on

No problem. I've accidentally left an amp on standby for days. Others have done it as well.

Re: Brand new Mark 5/35 - am I an idiot?

I can't imagine that you hurt the amp, but I'd look into a few things. First of all, make sure the speaker is connected properly and that the speaker isn't turned off (it sounds stupid, but we've all done dumb things). Look at every control on the amp and make sure you're not missing something. Then...

Re: Hanging golden screw behind 2 second power tube....

Re: Downgrading from a Mark V to a Rectoverb 25 Head...

Different amp, but an example of a modern lower wattage Mesa amp- I've got a Mark Five:25, and it's not a great low volume living room amp. The sound is kinda flat when the channel masters are turned low (especially the lead sound). In fact, I use an attenuator with it at home. From what I've read, ...

Re: I don't love my Mark V

Different amp, but it may affect your situation- I found my Mark Five:25 to sound pretty dull and lifeless unless I turn up the channel masters and use an attenuator with it (when required).

Re: DC-2

When I had a DC-3, there was a resistor or cap that I removed from the lead channel that really opened up the lead tone. I can't remember the details and don't know if the DC-2 is similar. You can probably search for it on this forum.

Re: Is mesa boogie still open with corona virus ongoing?

I emailed them on Saturday and heard back from Garey within a few minutes but I suspect that he answered the email from home and the issue didn't need to be escalated.
