But empty cabinets don't have any sound...Speakers and cabinets, one can not create "tone" without the other


That's true but an amp can't create sound without a guitar so it is (IMO) important to talk about both separately AND together.

It is now. :lol:




Guys I was just trying to put together some kind of central reference for all the new people coming to the forum, not some factual tone guide. Of course the sum of the parts matters, but more often than not, the repetitive questions are concerning individual components. :wink:

If something does need to be changed by all means I will change it.

I think I might be one of the newbies that fluff had in mind when making the general reference thread, and for that I thank him.

I've had my Triple Recto for about 3.5 years now. There have been times I almost gave up. It is a veritable laboratory of different tones and sounds.

I meant the arguing over whether or not an unloaded cab in a forest can be heard if no one is around to hear it fall...

Only if a bear shat upon it first. :lol:
If indeed a bear would in fact do such a thing within the woods.

I agree with triple. I'm new to to the Mesa Boogie world and I have tons of questions and everyone here has been very helpful.

Fluff's post just solved two issues for me. I was wondering about those "pops" when I first switched channels, good not to have to worry about that anymore. I also noticed that my amp would make a "zzzzt" sound when I would power it up, soon after that my effects loop when out. After reading Fluff's FAQ, I swapped out the tube for the effects loop and it started working again!!

Quick question; I do noticed that all the lights on my bigfoot light up when I first power up my amp. Is that normal?

Thanks for the FAQ!!
