Hello,

I recently bought a second hand DC5 and i would like to replace the preamp tubes.
I would like to know if there is a schematic of the preamp tubes available? I mean i want to know where is V1, V2, V3 etc... to test with some different tubes as i read on your previous posts.
I hope to read from you soon.
Regards.
Luke

Mesa's site has manuals for download which includes a tube task chart, but V1 is the preamp tube closest to the input. Then so on from that slot...

Thank you for your quick answer.
I didn't found any tube task chart on the DC 5 manual, but there is one on the DC3 manual. It should be the same.
So V1 is the nearest to the input jack and so on, that's right?
Regards
Luke

BTW... You have to get these from Mesa. They're not on the site. You have to call so copy and save it.

That task chart is the same as the one in the DC3 manual with the exception of the 6L6 tubes...
