I'm running a stereo rig with 2 Mesas, a TA30 and a MiniRec. My pedal board is a bunch of fuzz, boost, and OD pedals into a Diamond Halo Chorus, which splits stereo into the amp inputs. From there, I run the effect sends from both amps into a Strymon Mobius, Timeline, and Big Sky, then stereo out from there into the effect returns on both amps.
This rig sounded amazing until last week. I tore my pedal board apart and replaced a bunch of cables as I reconfigured everything. Now I have a crazy loop issue I don't understand.
When I run the TA30 on the blue channel, it still sounds like it should. But the MiniRec seems to be putting out a 100% wet signal. When I switch off the MiniRec's loop, I get no sound from that amp with no impact on the TA30. When I switch off the TA30's loop, it kills the sound to the MiniRec as well.
When I switch the TA30 to the red channel and run it in tweed mode, or any of the others, both amps sound fine and perform as they should.
I bought and returned two different TA30 combos when they first came out, both for loop problems. I swore off that amp due to the poor loop implementation, but never got over how much I loved the top boost tone. I picked up my current TA30 head a few weeks ago, and it seems to have the same or a similar problem. It's probably an early example.
Before I walk away from this amp forever, has this been identified as a problem by Mesa and fixed? Is it just me?
