I noticed the preamp tubes have a protective bar or something over them - i've never seen something like that on a Mesa before...
The fx mix doesn't affect volume, just the ratio of the wet/dry signal. :D

Seems like this was not the case with my Stiletto and Rectoverb...

In any case the FX mix knob is inactive now that the loop is series!

Just the loop mod makes a hell of a difference!

Although, I modded my DC-5 and then noticed that the jacks were not letting signal pass. I had to resort to the jumper patch cord fix. :lol:
