Re: Mark I reissue combo owners

Yes, the SUS-4 suspension mounting has the amp chassis connected to the plastic/rubber-ish pieces, which allow a little movement in all directions.

Re: New California Tweed™ 6V6 4:Forty amp

Ohh. that looks nice! $1900 for the combo and $1700 for the head is a bit steep though. For now, I think I'll stick with my Subway Blues for my bedroom amp and my Mark 1 reissue or Mark III for the jam amp....

New Mesa amp: Fillmore 25!

6V6 power tubes, reverb controls on back, for a slightly smaller chassis. Looks nice!

Re: connection?

Are your two speakers the same type/model? If not, then the two speakers may have different efficiencies, so the volumes will not be the same, even if they have the same impedance. I recommend you use the same model of speaker, or at least use two speakers that have a similar efficiency rating (also...

Re: Can anyone identify this cabinet

It is a Boogie open back 15" cabinet. I haven't seen too many of these. I have a black one just like it (without the EVM logo). I put a Weber 25W alnico speaker in it, and I use it with my Subway Blues, which I put in a head cabinet. It sounds great! Check out pics here: http://forum.grailtone.com/v...

Re: New Mesa Amp: Fillmore 50!!!

Mesa comes out with a new amp and no comments all day? OK. I'll comment. This looks like a really nice amp! I can't wait to hear it. At first, I thought the identical channels was redundant, but the more I think about it, I like it. On the Mark amps, if you don't like one of the channels, you won't ...

Re: Loud consistent hum with my Mark I Reissue

I don't really have any other ideas. Since it happens in different venues, it must be something wrong with the amp. You may want to take it to an amp tech. Here ais a list I found with some of the potential issues: http://www.geofex.com/ampdbug/hum.htm Good luck. Please let us know if you discover t...

Re: Loud consistent hum with my Mark I Reissue

It sounds like a 60 Hz ground loop. Have you tried switching the ground switch on the back? Does that make a difference?

Re: New signature Hetfield Mesa Mark amp ?

Wow! At first, I thought the amp was a Mark V, but you can see clearly that there is a small section of knobs in between the channel 2 and 3 knob sections, unlike the Mark V. Also, the power switches on the right are top/bottom, rather than side by side. Also, I think this amp does not have the 3 sm...

Re: Triple Crown TC-50

Looks like they may be going for a Fender, Marshall and Mesa in one box... Could be very versatile. Now if only the preamp channels were modules that you could swap in and out and customize the three channels... That would be my dream amp!
