    Mesa/Boogie Repair, Boston Area

    I have a Mesa/Boogie Rocket 44 that needs repairs. After 10 minutes or so, there is a loud hum. I do not believe that the hum is caused by my guitar's pickups, because they are two EMG 81s. Also, from time to time there is a loud pop when I turn on the standby switch or a loud pop when I turn off the on/off switch.

    Can anyone recommend an amplifier repair person in the Boston area?

    Thanks for your help.

    I'd either call Matt's Music down in Weymouth:

    Or Jim Mouradian:

    You also might consider contacting Mesa directly. I had an issue with my Studio 22 and it was surprisingly not too expensive for them to fix it, even including shipping between California and DC.

    i DON'T think Mouridian does amp repair, but I could be wrong. Phenominal shop if you need any guitar work done though.

    Also, Mesa has a service center finder on their site:

    Support | MESA/BoogieŽ

    Here's hits for Boston/02109:

    For serious stuff they send it back to their main place in Cali.

    Also, I've had used amps have that problem. It's usually a Tube Issue. On Mesa you can just skip the Bench Fee of a tech and tube it yourself, as they are fixed bias.

    Also, there's a "lift ground" switch that sometimes needs to be switched to the other position depending on your set up. I'm pretty sure all Mesas have them.

    I have gotten my Mesa/Boogie Rocket 44 repaired. I took it to Aztec Electronics, Watertown, Massachusetts, one of the repair sites given on Mesa/Boogie's website. Thanks again for the advice.
