I have some of these for my acoustic board, that's the only time I play barefoot lately.

Re: Road King 1 vs Road King 2 ch3&4 difference

I sold my Roadster to a buddy and got a RK II. I really would be just as happy with the Roadster, maybe more so. The only reason I can see is if you need a brighter tone to counter severe drop tuning. Otherwise, you can get pretty much the same tones from the 6l6's

Re: Road King II Footswitch confusion, please help

I have no idea. Pretty sure mine is a RKII V2 but came with the long switch. I honestly like the idea of the shorter board and would consider getting one and saving the original as a backup

Re: Cleaning up a single rectifier

What kind of pickups are you using? I find hotter pickups make it hard to get a really pristine clean on my single.

Re: Thinking about getting a Roadster

I was in WC Music was this past winter when I picked up a 2x12 vertical cab. It looked empty in there. :cry: They used to have quite a selection of Mesa heads/combos/cabs. Not the case anymore. They're a good shop, hope they don't close up. Anyway, thanks for the input. I'm really leaning toward ge...

I put my 2x12 on end, then balance my RKII and rack on top

I didn't realize Roadsters had a 50watt power option either. Definitely nice for my purposes. Wish I could demo one, but no shops in my area have any. :cry: Ju...

Re: Help Trouble Shooting an Issue with my Road King II

Check to see if you hit the cabinet selector for those channels. That happened to me at a gig and I had to limp through until I could figure it out afterwards.

Re: Mesa roadking for Eric Clapton tone

I would think the tweed and brit settings on the first two channels would help you get close to most of his tones. If you need more gain, go with raw on channel 3. For his newer tones, bear in mind that he has an on board mid boost. Cranking the mids on channel 4 in the raw or vintage setting will h...

Re: RKII Which FX Loop To Use?

I use the second loop for special effects. Currently, I have an EQ setup with a slight output cut. It's great for when I need to cut volume but maintain saturation. We're big on dynamics live and there are a lot of times when I need to maintain my tone, but reduce the volume to a background level an...

Re: Question about "Fat" mode on Road King

The Tweed or Brit modes are more likely to get close to what you want. The tweed kills when it's cranked up a bit and then when you hit it with a fuzz, oh yeah.

Re: Is boosting a Recto overrated?

I put channel one of my Road King on the tweed setting and boost that for more saturation, or when I use a single coil on the other channels, but that's the only time I do it.

Re: 3 Boogie lineup

I always hate it when someone suggests something other than the options listed, but I'm going to be that guy. If you have them nearby, you may want to check out a Recto series amp with a Raw, Tweed or Pushed mode. They all do gritty tones well without being too smooth, especially with lower output p...
