  2. A rather mysterious pedal schematic..

    Effects Pedals, Strings and more
    I was looking for an AMT R2 schematic and ran into this. Interesting design - shows attention to detail & all JFET with Schottky diodes. No context was given, it was posted on Гитарные эффекты AMT -> Прикрепления named: лрплр.png ...which roughly translates to : "lrplr.png" ... according to...
  3. Amp pricing (used)

    as i continue looking for a marshall 2204 i can afford (cant seem to sell my traynor ycs50H though either)...something struck me this morning... You can sift through posts on the marshall form , mylp, and even TGP...and ten years ago, people were giving marshalls away, while Mesa dominated the...
  4. iRig questions

    Effects Pedals, Strings and more
    So in my messing around with amp sim software, I stumbled across one that really speaks to me. It's an ipad app with 5 Mesa Boogie models, and as an extra bonus, a drum looper. I had my laptop in mind, but I think I will borrow the wife's mini and try this out. It looks like the iRig HD...
  5. Good price for a two channel Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier

    Amps and Cabs
    Hi, wonder if you guys could help me. I have a two channel Dual Rectifier with a 4x12 that I've had for a number of years now. Unfortunately it's been awhile since I've been able to use it (split level house, too big of an amp for what I need now) and it looks like it's getting to the point...

    Amps and Cabs
    Hi all! I am looking for a tube amp (my first one!) to do different sorts of things: - Must have very nice cleans and must take pedals of all kind very well (to play some ambient/post rock) - Must have very good hi gain sound (to play some metal/metalcore and modern punk rock) - I want to play...
  8. Mesa Boogie Mark V: Preamp Tube Preferences

    Amps and Cabs
    Hey Mesa Mark V'ers, I recently picked up a Mesa Mark V combo, and I'm really diggin' the plethora of tones it has. I discover something new about it almost every day I play it. I've decided to explore its tonal palette a little more deeply by replacing some/all of its tubes. I have a quad...
  9. Mesa 50+ Caliber question

    Amps and Cabs
    Hey all. I recently got my hands on a Mesa Boogie 50+ Caliber head and it's been sitting at my buddies place out of town so I haven't had a chance to try it out - until tonight that is! (so stoked) That said, my pedal board has a Carl Martin Octaswitch that has two external switches on it. I'd...
  10. Mesa boogie M6 2013 vs. SVT Classic 2014

    Amps and Cabs
    Hey guys, Looking for people with experience with both of these amps in a touring situation. We know ampegs die a lot but we hope the newer ones fixed that issue. The mesa has a history of overheating, not sure if that's fixed in the 2013's. It will get run hard twice a week at practice and...
