    Be aware of what these are. Loud and clean is an understatement. I had a 1973 made one that I bought new as a kid thinking I would get instant Who... I got rid of it for a Marshall. The HW just...

    Iíve been playing a BUGERA V22 in clubs for years. I took the badge off to fool the cork sniffers. I was at a jam just this Tuesday night and 3 people played through it that I know use Mesas in their...

    If itís a standard Switchcraft jack.. replace it. Using emery cloth on contacts isnít a permanent solution.

    I would pass on the buffers and make it true bypass. I’ve been using some 4dpdt switches in “Big Crush” compressors. You could put in “variable Q” switches and stuff. But I find most people find a...

    I’ve done what you said. Sometimes thinned contact cement works better. Sometimes some saturated tissue paper. You can always spray the cones with flat black rattlecan spray paint. That’s an old...

    What an odd design. Honestly I would just use an isolation transformer and be done with it. Btw.. is this amp yours or a customers? There is nothing magical about these amps imho. If it’s your own...

    I think home printers are designed just to piss us off for kicks. Especially WiFi... There are ALWAYS compatibility issues and weird bugs. I can use one for months. All it takes is my wife to walk...

    Itís all Ohms Law. And as Harold said itís the same principle. It depends on the application.. especially the resistance of the load.

    This is not a complex amp. I would remove and test the output transistors for shorts one at a time. Then the drivers. If you do get it fixed.. make sure you check his speakers and wiring as a short...

    I play a lot of venues, but mostly dive bars nowadays. I always ASSUME that ALL outlets are suspect. A brand new recepticale in an old building means nothing. Usually I will run the whole band with a...

    I get that with my Bugera V22 with the badge off. I’m next to Mesas all of the time. They usually sound like a bucket of bees. I use an old Rat pedal with the Bugera and that’s it. I get asked if...

    I used to ďflywireĒ a lot of that stuff upside down... but it can be tricky when heat sinks are involved.

    Tell him to buy a $12 package of Hearos and turn down or use a speaker attenuator as necessary.

    Then my best guess is itís a 100 ohm B taper just like it says. Measure from the middle of the element to each end. Should be about 50 ohms each way.

    Do what Dude says. Take it apart. You should be able to measure the rest of the element. Measuring to the middle from each end it will give you an idea of the taper too.
