Re: RA100 noisy reverb

Iceman -- Sorry, but I haven't had the opportunity to record anything for you yet. I did listen to the clip you posted though. First, I don't think it is necessarily a good thing to turn your amp up (volume wise) without an instrument connected. I could be wrong though about that point. Your reverb ...

Re: RA100 noisy reverb

Dude, I will make it a point to record my RA tomorrow to show you that that RA's clean channel isn't supposed to be noisy. I don't know what to make of the amp you tried on the showroom floor, but I tried two RAs out (of which, mine was ordered custom) and they both sounded fab. I don't know how to ...

Re: TA-30 Reverb noise & tube change idea

The hiss you are hearing is inherently in the design of the amp. It is there due to the proximity of the reverb tank to the output transformer. If you don't like the hiss, get a reverb pedal or an external reverb unit.

Re: Looking for good Mini Rectifier settings to nail EVH Ton

I'm not sure you are going to be able to "nail EVH Tone" with a Recto, regardless of which incarnation of Recto you are using.

I think the Stiletto would be your best bet if you want a Mesa to "nail EVH Tone." Otherwise, get a EVH 50-watt head. Those things totally nail EVH's tone.

Sorry guys, my weekend was far busier than I expected. When I get a chance to post a side-by-side, I'll PM those interested.

Re: Post your rig part 2

Guitarrhinoceros... Pics or it never happened (as they say). :D Fine then, it never happened. I don't have the time to seriously go through thousands of pictures in iPhoto, just to find old pictures of my various amp equipment to make you feel better about our conversation. I would also prefer to b...

Re: Post your rig part 2

Um, I don't get a lot of the rigs that are posted on here? I play and have played out for the last three years. Even did a small tour of New England and Northern California. I was fortunate enough to meet other guitarists from touring bands as well. Some of these so-called rigs don't really seem li...

Hey! I teach and am busy this week with parent teaching conference as well, but I will try to put together a scientific comparison of the two speakers this weekend.

Re: RA100 noisy reverb

You swapped power tubes for an issue that you narrowed down to being related to the spring reverb tank of the amp? Why would you do that? I hadn't narrowed it down to the reverb at that point. I had some extra tubes so while I had the back opened I swapped them. you may have overlooked that the V-3...

Re: RA100 noisy reverb

The noise on the clean channel when the reverb is in engaged is really bugging me. Is this something that is common on all RA100s? I've swapped all the pre-amp tubes, power tubes, not the PI though. Can be heard when there is no input and master is off. Really annoying to have a high dollar amp (or...

I'll offer some really, really good settings for anyone interested, to use with their RA-100. First off, I should preface this with the fact that I use mainly a stock Gibson SG Standard and a stock Fender Custom Shop Telecaster with this amp. My RA is the combo version. For speakers, it has one Blac...
