Stiletto Deuce Stage 1, are there any Cathode Follower?

Post by bandit2013 » Sun Nov 15, 2015 10:46 pm

I have been searching for a while, I do recall seeing a full list of Mesa amps indicating what tube positions are cathode follower circuits in the Rectifier forums but can no longer locate that post.
So, does anybody have knowledge if such preamp circuit is in the Stiletto? I did not see any preamp tube positions listed as "tone Stack" in the manual. I may assume the FX send would be a CF.

Thanks in advance to your help.

I was able to find a reference to the cathode follower circuits. V3 and V4.

It is not clear enough in the manual (assumed V4 due to FX loop) but V3 being referenced as a tone stack as a function. Amp should be here today per the shipping and tracking notice. The wait is the fun part (sarcastically stated of course).

Ignore the hype and trust your ears. Play more, buy less = better tone.
