    No one has bought a Triple Crown yet? Sounds pretty bitchin to me :shrug:
  2. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    When I woke up this morning I had no idea that I was going to be looking to buy a new amp, as I already have sufficient amplitude. But I just happened to be surfing the local Kijiji adds and this caught my eye. The guy was asking $375can, and I though to myself, that seems awfully cheap for a...

  4. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Pretty simple trade, really. Tomorrow afternoon, I'm driving a couple hours to trade my Mesa Boogie Lone Star Special head and Avatar 2x12 cab for a Lone Star Classic 2x12 combo. Yeah, it's a monster at 90 lbs, but ever since I got into the Lone Star, I've wondered what the big classic would...

    Amp has arrived and sounds awesome. It even has my favorite power tubes in it... E34Ls! JJ's rather than Mullards, but I think these will last longer and hopefully not kill the screen grid resistors like Mullard's did. Anyways, I don't have a footswitch and I can't even use the solo boost...

    Just scored this Mesa 1x12. I'm going to use it with my GSP 1101 modeling rig. The Black Shadow that's in it sounds good, but I'm going to cut a panel for the back to make it a closed back cab. I'm going to put an Eminence Deltalight II in it, because the Black Shadow in it only can take 90...

    Recently sold my Peavey 5150 and I'm looking for a replacement. Honestly I've been looking for an EVH 5150 III 50w. I just happened to notice an ad for this Mesa boogie stiletto trident local. Can anybody give me information on this...

    To start with a little bit of background; My cousin had been playing guitar and in bands for years, but 7-8 years ago he quit due to college and getting married and now has a child. (I did the same but never quit wtf?) Fast Forward to early 2015, he hadn't been playing in a long time and had his...

    I have somehow now packed 7 spaces of gear into a little 4 space SKB roto rack :rofl: Honestly, I love this little rack. This was some trying, getting everything to fit when I added the wireless, but it works perfectly. The pedals are velcro'd in and tied down, and while the shelf doesn't move...

    Saw this shared on Facebook earlier today: https://www.thegearpage.net/board/index.php?threads/it-looks-like-mesa-has-discontinued-the-roadster.1825465/ ...and sure enough, if you look at the Rectifier line-up, it's mentioned in the text but no longer listed below: The Rectifier Series |...

    The guy I sold my Splawn to mentioned that he saw a Recto that had its "Solo" function modified to be an FX Loop on/off. Anyone heard or witnessed anything like that before? That'd be a pretty sweet trick to do to my SR50 and Stiletto.
  15. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Well lately I've been shuffling around gear. I cleared out my 7 and 8 string which I was never going to use. I sold my 50W 5150III I love the blue channel but the other two channels are mediocre. So my thought was maybe at some point I grab the lunchbox version. In the meantime my local...

    I recently got an older Dual Rectumfinder 2ch, and after doing some reading I heard they sound best through a Mesa cab. So I figured what the the hell, may as well try one out. And one just happend to pop up for sale locally for dirt cheap so I snatched it up. I ended up paying $525 for the cab...

    As I mentioned a short while back, I had the opportunity to mess with a Mesa Lonestar 2x12 (the LSC) and loved the tone. So, in the back of my head, I'm kinda hunting one but funds being what they are, I'd probably end up trading for it. I know the amps I'm about to ask about are different...

    So I finally got a Mesa after much research on the forums here and elsewhere. A big thanks to all who gave me advice in my other thread. Well here's what I got. So I actually don't know a lot about it. Fuck all, actually. Just that it's a older 2ch model. I got the serial number so...

    I'm thinking about picking up a used dual or triple rectifier. But to be honest I don't know a lot about music gear and tube amps. I seen there is a bit of variety. I know duals are 100 watt and triple are 150. But there is also two channel and three channel rectos. Is there a huge difference...

    Hey guys. I have the Mark 5:25 and I also have the 6505MH. Both of them utilize a 2 button footswitch. I'd like to be able to use the same footswitch for both, for pedalboard ease. The problem is that they seem to be wired in reverse, if that makes sense. So, if i plug my Mesa Boogie footswitch...
