Re: Pop when switching between channels

I use the dyne almost for 4 years now 1x12 combo version but never experienced an issue like this. Tube problems can cause a lot of interesting behaviour. Also many electrical equipments or issues in the area where you tried it. This amp is a very very sensitive animal! Try to swap with footswitch ...

Recommend a cabinet for the M6 Carbine

I'm seriously considering getting an M6 Carbine. I'm actually a guitarist, but the last couple of years I've started playing a little bass, and I also want to record it. Because of limited space, I don't want anything bigger than a 2x10 (or 2x12). I mainly play rock, hard or not so hard, but can als...

Pop when switching between channels

Tried an Electra Dyne today and switched from clean to HI and it gave off a loud pop. I switched on the front panel, not with a footswitch. Thought that wouldn't happen with a modern amp.

Faulty or user mistake?

Re: Four heads are better than one

Custom ordered a head cab from you a few years ago. Still looks stunning!

Nice to see that you keep up the good work and supply the ones in need! :D

Harsh tones from IV and IIc+

Recently been trying to improve my recording technique with my Mark IIc+ and IV. They both sound awesome in the room, but as soon as I stick my head in front of the cabinet (v30 loaded Marshall AV) i hear some really harsh mid-frequency tones. Tried to record them using different mics and positions,...

Re: Bass cabinet for guitar?

Yes, as you know I have a beautiful head I could bring with me, gts;) The driving distance is about 2 hours though, so I thought I should check with the experts here first :D The weight may be a problem as I wanted thieles for portability. I have no doubt in the speakers, but in the cabinet design w...

Bass cabinet for guitar?

I've been looking for EVM-12L loaded thieles for some time with little success. There's a Mesa/Boogie Diesel 2-15 bass cabinet with EV EVM-15L's for sale not too far away from me now. Just wondered if it would work out good as a guitar cabinet. Any opinions on the EVM-15L's?

Re: EL 34's in Mark III

Is it a simul-class amp? If not, you're not supposed to put EL-34's in it. Does your amp use 6 power tubes? If so it's a coliseum (300 series) amp. If it uses 4 power tubes it's not.

Re: Mk IV plate voltages

I'm in the process of buying my first NOS tubes (power & preamp tubes). The vendor I talked to wondered what plate voltages they would be operating at. I very exite! 8)

Mk IV plate voltages

The plate voltages for a simul-class/100w Mk IIc+ is somewhere around 450v-460v, right?

What is the plate voltages in the Mk IV?

Joey, please chime in :mrgreen:

7581a brands

A simple question for the knowledgeable. Are the NOS GE and RCA versions of the 7581a tubes of the same construction and quality as the ones made by Philips/Sylvania, or are these just rebrands of the Philips/Sylvania 7581a? I have the chance to buy NOS 7581a's for $60.00 a piece, but they're descri...

Re: 60's Mullard 12ax7s value

Thanks for the reply gts. Think I'll just have to read a lot and check out some sites to get to know the market and going prices. I've actually read TimbreWolf's thread a while ago but didn't get much out of it back then. I may find it more useful now though. And thanks for the tip on the late 50's ...

60's Mullard 12ax7s value

I have the possibility to buy two unused Mullard 12ax7s from the sixties for about $200.00. Would you say this is a good deal or nothing special? I've just started to look into the NOS market and my knowledge isn't the best, although I'm trying to learn. How much is the going price for these? Best r...
