    Mesa Mark V Intermittent Issue

    Hey all, just wondering if anyone has experienced an issue like this before and can offer some insight on what could be the problem. The amp was bought new 5yrs ago and has been working perfectly until about a year or so ago when it developed an intermittent power issue. It will randomly...

    Radial JDI as amp line out?

    Just got a Radial JDI Passive DI to use with my acoustic rig and reading through the manual realized it can be used as a speaker out, guitar amp DI; basically acting as a post-power amp line out. Has anyone used it this way to record? Any issues? I'm assuming it will have to be processed...

    SQOTD: Mastery Bridge Tuning

    Stupid questions of the day ... I never played a "J" style guitar, just wondering if the Mastery Tremolo bridge allows for drop tuning 6th string without having to retune the whole guitar or does it work like a regular floating trem? Thx!

    Suhr SL67 vs. SL68

    Hey all, Fingers crossed, one of these two are in my near future. I will never need the full 100W power of the big one but still wondering if there are audible differences between the two that would warrant getting the SL68 over the SL67 even if I don't *need* all the power. Plan is to crank...

    Hey all, Wondering if anyone has experienced a similar issue before ... CH. 1 Tweed, Normal Mode, Gain all the way up, with or without any input signal being applied. When sweeping the mid knob the amp self-oscillates through a certain range. Overall volume is set low, FX loop on/off makes...

    Contact Cleaner Question

    Hey techie friends ... my BOSS pedal developed a scratchy input jack, pretty sure it's just dirt or oxidization cuz I already cleaned it a bit and it helped but not enough. I sprayed a 1/4 jack with contact cleaner and inserted it in/out a few times, that helped a bit. Then I sprayed a Q-tip...

    Played a Gibson LP Traditional ... surprised how bad

    Strolled into Steve's here in Toronto on the weekend looking to check out Mesa Mark V, been on a 1x12 combo hunt lately and since I have my Grosh '59 spec set neck at home, figured I'll grab something "similar" with 2 HB's, mahogany/maple, set neck ... etc. So the sales guy hands me the $2700...

    Rockett Archer - Quick Review

    Never owned nor played The Klon or any of the Klones and was never really interested in the whole hype either.

    Looking into getting a 2x12 for my BE when I have stage space issues ... would love to get the Bogner one but it's $250 more and already have a Bogner 4x12 that I use most of the time.
