    Mesa Mark V Intermittent Issue

    The tech mentioned he did the “hammer test” and there was no change. I tried moving the amp around and tapping it with hands but could not reproduce the issue. I also wiggled power and standby switches but again nothing. It acts up almost every time I turn it on, but sometimes it flickers right...

    Mesa Mark V Intermittent Issue

    Right ... the tech I took the amp to said diodes were fine. I may take it to another place and have them look it over once more.

    Mesa Mark V Intermittent Issue

    Ok, what should I expect that to do and if it fixes the problem, what was the issue?

    If by pedalboard you mean footswitch then yes, tried with and without, no difference.

    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...

    Attenuator for 50w Plexi (SL67).

    Similar here ... at home, I set my SL67 to low power, master 1/4 up, volume around 4~6 on the dial and then I hit the amp with Koko Boost for some extra crunch (or use a fuzz, dist or OD pedal if I want more "gain"). I find that doing so, I get a much better feel and sound for lower volumes than...

    Mesa triple rec or Rivera K-tre ?

    Hhhmmm ... that's odd, I don't own but often play JCM 2000 as that's what they have available at the studio where we rehearse. My main sound is always a crunchy amp boosted with a pedal of sorts and JCM 2000 sounds awesome. Probably my favourite out of all the other amps they have in various...

    Suhr SL-67 Speaker Issues

    This ... I run bass on mine at 2 and no channel jumping. SL-67 has no bright cap so that’s going to affect the overall sound as well.

    Mesa Mark IIC+ vs. Mark III

    It removes negative feedback and ends up sounding tighter and crunchier (to my ears) as a result. Has much smoother top end and never gets fizzy even at very high gain settings (unlike Mark IV and IIC+ modes). Also cleans up really, really well on mid-lower gain settings and can go from clean to...

    What instrument cables are you using with your amplifier?

    BTPA.COM High Definition guitar cable with Neutrik connectors. Have been getting cables from these guys for years. Great price and quality and zero difference between them and some other higher priced booteek ones.

    suhr sl 68 not very loud....ppimv an issue?

    I have a SL67 and it's the same ... the Master has a really nice gradual taper to it. I'm assuming that's by design. How loud is it full up? Mine is literally shaking the whole house ... LOL

    Dirty Shirley Twin amp nice

    I think the amp was voiced like that intentionally to be really fat and "vintage" ... guess it works well with single coils. To be fair, I have bass set to "2" on my Suhr SL67. Having said that, DS has much more pre-amp gain then SL67 and at those gain levels the overwhelming bass response...

    Dirty Shirley Twin amp nice

    DS is the best Friedman amp I played and heard so far ... I owned a BE-100 and sold it. The only thing I don't like is that there's waaaaaaay too much bass for my taste. Even at 0 I feel there's too much. If the current bass at 0 would be more like at 5 it would be perfect for me. If it wasn't...

    Tim Pierce video re: EVH tone with Suhr sl68

    :dunno ... my SL67 cranked gets into that early VH tone instantly without any pedals or variacs and that's just into a Bogner 4x12 with V30's. Not that I'm particularly after that sound or that's what I was trying to achieve, but as soon as I cranked it and hit a chord it was the first thing I...

    Friedman BE-100 Deluxe vs Marshall JCM800 - VIDEO

    Great vid, thanks for sharing! Maybe in person I would vote differently but in this comparison, JCM-800 does it for me!
