Hey mates. At last i bought a second hand LSC head v2.

Well, obviously it's a monster (in any way), i like it a lot and i would like you to ask you:

1) In 50w mode which tubes are not operate? The 2 inside or the two outside?

2) The footswitch (the big one) when i go from clean to drive makes a very loud pop noise.
(I used to have the Roadster and it had the same problem but when it was in standby mode i was pushing all the buttons one after the other and that trick was solving the problem).
I tried also the footswitch of my DC-5 (the same function) and it did it also.
From the serial number i assume that my LSC it's from 2009 or something.
Any thoughts?

They are great amps. I believe the outer tubes are the 50's. As for the Footswitch pop, all I can say is mine doesn't do that.

Thanks for your reply.
Indeed, it's in the manual that in the 50 watt setting runs only the outside tubes. Although i read it thoroughly, i missed that one like an amateur... :lol:

As far as the footswitch, thankfully it wasn't an actually problem because i realized that the pop is present only when the 2 channels has different watt setting. It's low from 100 to 50 but more present from 100 to 10.
Maybe it's a normal electronic issue. I can live with it.

The amp is a BEAST!

Hmmm, I keep mine both at 50w. I'll try different wattage settings and see if it "pops". Mine is a V1 with no 10w setting. The original "Blue Pig" 2x12. :lol:
