    Am I the only person on Earth that cannot bond with Mesa amps?

    Mesa boogies for me are my favorite amps, specifically the Rectifier series. I own a 94 trem-o-verb. That amp is great. I get really nice bluesy tones in the first channel as well as a killer clean, and the second channel is a great modern tone. To me, i'd put it up against any gain channel...

    Road KING SWOOSHING Sounds

    Hey Gang - took a little break from playing, and now dusting off my gear. My road King sounds absolutely MEAN AND NASTY as it should. What I'm experiencing is as follows: Its dead silent on channels one and two. They are set to tweed and fat respectively. On Channel 3 (Modern) and Channel...

    James Tyler Guitar Options - Help

    Hey guys, I'm looking hard at the Tyler Studio Elites and Burning waters. I can see on the website they offer a lot of options, but what is the "stock" Tyler build? From what I can tell the difference from the burning water and the studio elite HD is the paint job. Also, any pickup...

    Tyler Guitar - Boost Option

    Hey Everyone, I've been looking at Tyler Guitars and really REALLY like the feel of the necks. I was messing around with one of the Studio Elites, and it came with a built in boost. For the Tyler owners out there that have this, do you use it and find it functional? For the Tyler owners...

    Men, have you ever had an unbelievable experience with a tube?

    I disagree with this one. In my roadster I can tell and in my old dual recs I can tell as well. When I had the RK v 1 you could definitely mix the sound and hear a difference. That said its still a mesa voicing but you could tell the difference from a 6L6. From what I remember mesa...

    Men, have you ever had an unbelievable experience with a tube?

    I play Mesa's so I don't know what good tone is. That said, No. The Mesa tubes are just fine to me. Discuss.

    Mesa Boogie out of GC?

    I was told today from a manger at guitar center that Mesa is indeed pulling out. Rumored that its a dispute (shock) over the pedal distribution / stocking. Mesa wanted them to stock / pre pay for a bunch of pedals, and guitar center felt differently. That combined with the overall financial...

    2012 LP ID Help Please!

    Gibson has shipped guitars in the past with different knobs. I would not get hung up on this. Looks like a great guitar! Good luck

    compressor placement?

    I like comp -> wah ->chorus -> delay If I use an OD It would go: I like comp -> OD -> wah ->chorus -> delay

    Is this LP fake or just Gibson's quality?

    If page owned it, people would be paying big money for that F up.

    What is it about Mesa Boogie Amps?

    For me the boogies sound like a high gain amp should sound in my head. not to tight, not too loose, not too saturated but just right. I will say this. The knobs do work, so little turns yield different results. If you knock a knob, it may take some time to dial back in if they are not...

    Has anyone ditched the Axe-FX to go back to tubes??? Share your stories here.

    The best I have ever heard the Axe FX, was when it was demo'd by a U2 Tribute band guitarist. It was disgusting how perfect it was for that. That said, If your not an FX junkie and hate to tweak, odds are you have what you need. I found myself wanting it to sound like my Mesa boogie, so why...

    *Sigh. I think my Mark V is too much for me.

    :peenut Here is the thing, The MArk V has a library o GREAT tones, and yes you need to work for them. The pedal thing is fine, but I'm personally happier with less pedals and a good amp.
