I think it may need to mod the volume knob but i'll play with it again and make sure. I wasn't paying much attention as I was trying to get a feel for the amp otherwise... I did notice that the FX mix knob had no effect on output volume which makes me wonder if the loop has already been modded... I'll pull the chassis this weekend and take a look...

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:
