$100, nice find, and I see the pedalboard is growing...
yes,big enough lol.
I see the power supply has arrived and is powering your new flanger!
Mesa? Clean? I immediately think lonestar
Congrats Johnny Goo. that is a beauty.....So whats that like 5 amps now????? YOur gettin bad as me.....
Very nice amp - very sweet price Johnny! Congrats!
thanks all,yes eSG im as bad as you. this place is a gas causing Enviroment lol.really liking the Epi Valve JR amp.reminds me of the Blackheart Killer Ant but with more steam
Yes Dave_Death its working well.was gonna ask you about no On/Off switch ???
No with these power supplies you just turn them off at the wall or at a switched power board. The Voodoo Labs ones don't seem to have a switch either. If you are in the USA where they just have those silly power points that are always on I guess you have to pull it out of the wall. I plug the one on my bass board into an unswitched power board when at home so to turn it off I have to pull the plug out of the board. A switched board would be better, for example a surge protector with switches. Hopefully you have a three-prong grounded power outlet on the wall for your amp.
Something like this would probably do the trick:
In Australia (and Europe, where the T-Rex company is based) wall power outlets generally have a switch, so I didn't think to mention this before. Do you leave your amp plugged into power?
This would be one of my ultimate small amps. But it only comes in a Head format. One of the voicing's this amp offers is the Mark IIC+... also one of my favorites.
I saw blues guitarist Tommy Castro perform with a Mesa Boogie Transatlantic TA 30 about 2 years ago. He was getting some very sweet cleans and bluesy overdrive, sometimes just by using his guitars volume control... even though it's a 2 channel amp. MB discontinued these, but are still available brand new. Head, rackmount, or 1x12 combo styles.
yes amp just stays plugged in Dave.on/off switch on amp.i guess i could plug power supply into a power strip with on off switch.
I find this to be true for most things, but especially true for amplifiers. Even more so than guitars.
Agreed. Also, for most, amps are much harder to mod than guitars.
ALl my amps run into a power strip/surge protector. Living in the Lightning capital of the country........I take no chances.
I would definitely find a way to isolate your amp and other power supplies from power when not being used, and install some kind of surge protector to protect all of that valuable equipment. Leaving stuff plugged in can kill some stuff eventually anyway. I am thinking here of wall warts, which after a while tend to develop a shrill noise in them, and then overheat (not sure what happens next because that's when I throw them out!).
I don't think any of these power supplies have switches because it would be a PITA to operate them when they are mounted under a pedal board.
If you want cleans with nice crunchy breakup on the clean channel, THE Peavey that does that is the Classic 50 (master volume makes it vastly superior to the Classic 20 or 30).
There is one of those here in Lakeland at a PawnShop for 300.00 WITH THE CABINET!
If anyone wants it I can facilitate a sale/ship ----if its till there it was a week or two ago I saw it.
Don't play it first. You might not wanna ship it out after that.
This amp has caught my attention lately. The Classic 50 seems to be quite a gem. What say you all?
Ishhh ... Black Heart Handsome Devil H15 head and Eminence 12" cab for $200 CND.
Did everything to get the seller's attention. Now waiting for his reply.
