DC-5 rev B (I think) questions

Post by JustMike » Fri Dec 16, 2016 2:51 pm

I just got this in the mail and it has no LED's on the front panel, so I think it's a rev B. First question; Is there a manual available for the rev B? I can't find it on Mesa's website or anywhere on line. Question 2;I think the channel select and EQ in/out are controlled via the front panel footswitch jack. So I would need a 2nd footswitch for the reverb jack on the back? Did they ship with 2 footswitches?

Thanks!

Not sure if they shipped with a Reverb footswitch or not. That is controlled by the jack on the back.


The channel and EQ are controlled by the front foot switch jack.

Thanks Bendo. That looks like the rev A manual-not that there's much difference, but the pics show the front panel LEDs and the rear panel doesn't show the headphone jack. Anyway, I'll get by, I've had the amp for a few hours now and discovered that v5 was shattered so I had no reverb...replaced it and reverb sounds nice!
I'm a newbie here and this is my first Mesa amp. I'm an old guy who played Hair metal thru Marshalls for almost 40 years. Now I play hollow bodies in a Yacht Rock situation and I'm hoping the DC-5 will give me the Carlton-esque sound I'm after.
