Wish/Fantasy

Post by jnoel64 » Tue Mar 27, 2018 11:16 am

I would dearly love it if Mesa brought back the Electra Dyne. But, in a smaller, lighter weight format. A 50 watt head or combo weighing about the same as my TC50 would be ideal. Adding a master volume taper that matches the TC50 would be another great improvement. As much as I love my TC50, my Dyne is still my favorite sounding amp. It's just too heavy and loud to haul around anymore.

I know, wish in one hand and sh*t in the other and see which one fills up first.

I agree.

Would be great to have such simple stuff also in Mesa lineup. :) but as the ed is now it is as advertised in manual “velvet hammer” - haven’t yet found amp with similar authority.

Maybe just smaller power & more adjustable master volume in higher gain settings. Still I would not buy new one as I have the older one already ;)

An Electra Dyne that runs off 2 6V6's or 2 EL84's would be so great! My main problem with my 1x12 combo is the weight. The amp is just too damn heavy. I love the tones, and I continue to lug the beast around to rehearsals and gigs both. If there were another option though, I'd take it!

Yeah the combo is damn heavy. I bought a head also that easier to carry. If a reissue I’d also kwant a better reverb. That’s what i dont like at the dyne at all. I want a fender super reverb sounding like reverb. By the way is it possible to achieve a fender like reverb just swapping the tank out or would it need further mods?

If I recall correctly the reverb starts to work great when master gets near 9 o’clock... but that is LOUD :)
