Re: Mesa Dual Rec Roadster Head- Lost Channel 1/2 AGAIN

What brand of 12ax7 are in V3 & V5? Those are cathode follower positions and weak tubes in those spots can create the issue you describe. Best to use only the current Mesa 12ax7 (which is a JJ), or a Chinese made tube (NOS/VOS seem to be fine also). Anything made by New Sensor Corp (Sovtek, EH, Tung...

.......... the other thing is maybe i didnt put the little RCA connectors from the reverb tank in the right slot.........
Did your reverb work just fine before you disconnected it?

You should at least try swapping the connections, nothing to lose.

Re: Multi-watt Dual recto clean ch. problem

How did you go with this? Did you get anywhere? Mine is quiet to compared to ch 1 and 2. If I want it louder it starts to distort and I like my cleans like crystal. Where do you have your channel masters set? I find that to keep the clean channel ‘clean’, I need to keep the lead channel Masters no ...

Re: Changing Speaker, are connections are soldered?Need help please

Soldering is much more reliable method, especially in a guitar cabinet.

As long as the connectors fit tightly you should be OK. I play at band volume regularly, and gig and often, so I prefer not to use connectors.

Re: Does my Road King need servicing? (video showing potential issue)

When you turn up the treble the mid and bass controls will become less effective, but the volume should not change. I don’t see a video in your post, or a link. Have you tried swapping any 12AX7s? Is this happening with the FX loop HARD bypassed? Are you plugging straight into the amp (no effects)? ...

Based on recommendation from WGS:
WGS ET65 (top)
WGS Veteran 30 (bottom)
I own a number of their speakers and think they sound great and are reasonably priced.
Thanks. I’ve seen that the ET65 / Veteran 30 is usually recommended as a mixed pair.

What kind of music are you playing?

Re: TC-50 Question? What did this amp replace if any?

The TC-50 merged things I liked about the Recto, Mark and Electra Dyne into one amp. That’s how I felt, the TC seems to have a mix of what I like about the Rectos and MKV, and why I was quick to let go of the MKV. It just would never get played now. With a bit of low-mid boost through the FX loop I...

Re: Quiescent noise barely heard in headphones, with speaker is pronounced

It would help to know which Recto this is, and how you are getting the headphone signal.

I still wish the tight mode switch could be controlled via midi. To be able to switch back and forth with a simple tap of the foot would be awesome.
I agree. That would be awesome indeed.

Tight or Normal, Rhythm or Lead

Just curious how everyone is setting up their TC50/100 for Heavy And Modern Rock tones?

I currently have both channels in tight mode, Ch 2 primarily rhythm and Ch 3 primarily lead.

Re: TC-50 Question? What did this amp replace if any?

I don't know if i can say replaced, but after getting my TC-100 I saw no need to hang onto the MKV. It was always the amp that I 'dusted off' from time to time just to keep it active. Even with the AT7 in the preamp, I just never bonded with that amp. The TC however is getting much more play time. I...

Re: Mark V 25 main transformer

I would think the only place you will find a replacement transformer will be from Mesa Boogie.

If you are not in the US, you will need to do this through a Mesa Dealer.

Re: Mesa TC-100 FX loop question

Agreed, a preamp pedal designed for the front end of an amp will not have enough signal to properly drive the power amp, and may also have impedance matching issues.
