SOURCE: i have a mesa boogie

sounds like you need new power tubes (they are the larger ones closest to the opening in the back).  When replacing power tubes it is extremely wise to replace all 4 at the same time.  If you an not comfortable doing this on your own, take it to your local shop/guitar amp tech.

Amp goes to half power? Even after tube replacement.


How do you know it is going half power? did you measure this, or do you only hear half the power? because then also a speaker (or more) could be not working.

I just bought mesa express 5 50 amp. After a couple of weeks the reverb control malfunctioned - no reverb, and the overall tonal quality drops. Is this a common problem? is it the tube?


Quite likely a valve. The only valve unique to reverb is V5. Clearly labled on the amp. Or check your manual. It's a 12AX7. You can't really swap it with another because they are all common to both channels. Just buy another - not expensive. If you have not changed valves before:
1. power off
2. let valves cool
3. identify V5
5. note the orientation by pin layout on your new valve.
6. remove valve (might have to wiggle gently)
7. do not force in new valve - pay close attention to orientation.

If it is not a valve, then it gets complicated, take it to a tech

Replacement howard cyclone fan 115VAC 50/60 HZ .16/.14 amps 12/11 watts for much quiet one for a mesa boogie mkIII


A47-B15A-15T1 by Globe Motors is what Mesa has been putting into the Mark IV and later. This one is what I have in two of my Mark IVs. It's a direct replacement for the howard fan

I need a operator manual for a lonestar sk-104 karaoke manchine


I have the same one. and I have had another model also.they are almost the same.If I am correct it is a cassette karaoke player.They take a special cassette that says lonestar super K.these players and tapes were from the 1992-1994.when you hook to the tv, the tv needs to be on channel 3 or 4.the back of the machine should have a switch with 3 &4.make sure both are on the same.on newer tv you may have to figure out the input & output.some say video some say line 1 line 2 etc.my machine uses a cable cord from tv to machine.any tape will play in them ,but only the special ones will put words on the tv. if you use the special tape when you put it in the machine only one side plays.it tells you on the tape.also only one side of the duel cassette compartment will put words on screen.my sk104 is side B.Hope this helps.if you still cant get on screen words,it could be that part of the machine just doesn't work anymore.that is what happened to my other one.

Hello, My Fiat doblo 1.9 jtd has cutting out and not restarting unless left for 10 mins or so no warning lights are on and on the garage diagnostic machine it came up as having no faults.Cutting out i


How can or would a professional repair shop change any parts
at all-- until they test a part & it failed a test & thus needs to be replaced

I would try a dealer or another shop.

Without the car to test no one can guess at any
vehicle issues for the most part

I have static in my 8/10 mesa cabinet. Its only in the second bank of speakers. The speakers seem to work and sound as good as the others in the cabinet but there is a weird light static sound that comes...


Sometimes there is a resonance with materials that are a part of the case or inside the cabinet that cause this. If the level is very low, don''t worry about it. I have even seen the logo on a speaker grill causing the noise... also debris inside or behind the grille...

Celestion Neodog Speaker


the mesa is for guitar and is not more than 100 watts, the neo dog is 100 watts it will fit but will give a different character because can be push to another limit of saturation the vox doesnt give that much.
