Re: Help with cutting through a band mix

Get EL34´s or better KT77´s to for that Marshallish grindy midrange...In preamp dont´t use JJ tubes they are just too dark and try that Tung sol/Sino mix...Also cab is most important part in your tone...Just don´t use oversized cabs...Marshall 1960AV or any smaller cab with V30´s will do job well.....

Re: Help with cutting through a band mix

I couldn't disagree more about the suggestion to turn up the presence. I always found that would make my Dual Rec sound too thin and 'not present' in the overall mix. I prefer to keep my presence around noon whenever I use a Rectifier on the road. So you're disagreeing with my recommendation to tur...

Re: Help with cutting through a band mix

This isn't an uncommon issue with the Dual Rectifiers. The amp is great with the low mids, but it doesn't particularly shine with high mids. For starters, if you want the Dual to cut like a Marshall, a Vox, or any other high midrange amp, forget about it -- it won't. If you are in a band with anothe...

Re: New to Boogie, how loud should a TremoVerb be?

You've got a weak tube(s) somewhere in the amp -- regardless of whether or not you bought it used or new. Mesa's are LOUD. Heck, tubes amps in general are LOUD. Even 10 watt Carr amps are LOUD. I once owned a Tiny Terror and on 7 watts that amp was TOO LOUD for true home usage -- that is, if I wante...

Re: RA-100=Mark IIC+

If Mesa thought there was even the most remote chance to market the RA as kinda like a MKIIC, I highly doubt their spin doctors would skip that. They claim the MKV is dead on the IIC and it is not, and they claim the IIC owners are overpaying tone snobs. Does that really sound like the kinda guys t...

REFUSED using Mesa Royal Atlantic live on Fallon

The Royal sounds great live. Just thought this was an interesting find. :!:

The guitarist with the Les Paul is using the Royal. You can hear his tone in some parts of the song that is just him playing. Enjoy.

Re: Mark V impressions after 2 weeks.

Hi all. I've had my MKV combo for a couple of weeks now and in general I'd say I'm happy but not over the moon with it. I've owned the Mk3, Heartbreaker, 2 Mk4 combos and a head, and an Express 5:50 before picking up the MkV. I've been a Boogie enthusiast for over 20 years. I picked this one up 2nd...

Re: RA-100=Mark IIC+

Play them BOTH in a stereo rig and you will wet your pants. :D It's a very complementary combination. The rawness of the RA-100, and the smoothness of the C+. I was there...I played it...I ALMOST wet my pants...(I didn't want to mess up the crib...so I excused myself...!) killer Like I said, we rep...

Re: What's a Roadster Head Worth?

I see a lot of people trying to get $1600 for a Roadster head. What do they actually sell for? I have an opportunity to pick one up as a partial trade. Any comments appreciated! Especially if they include info about versions or features that are not common knowledge for non-owners. I think they ave...

Re: TA30 compared to Maz18?

I was recently in a rehearsal studio and was playing through a Dr.z maz 18 and I really loved the clean the tone. No DrZ dealers in the state so I headed over to my Mesa dealer to give the lone star special a try since it is an el84 based amp as well. I liked the cleans but didn't care for the driv...

Re: FS: ReBorn Dual Rectifier

A couple of reasons. Got a Kemper Profiler (so I have the Mark IV now) but more importantly DV Mark sent me their Triple 6 amp and it's my dream tone. Sounds like a cross between a 2 channel Recto, an SLO and an Uberschall. So no need for the Recto. Sweet, man. I'm glad you have found something tha...
