Total Watts

  1. Thanks for commenting @agedhorse. My tech says that there is a short across the output, and that this should be fine when all is working correctly. However, with the fault he observed there is a different outcome: No output, and valves still running and becoming red hot. He's an official Mesa tech in the UK and says his contact at the Mesa factory is Kris Dilbeck.
  2. My Mesa tech in the UK text-messaged me regarding some major issues he's encountered recently (basically no support from Mesa). He says his long-time official contact, Francesco Longi, left the company a short while ago. My tech needs some support regarding one of my Mesa Strategy 888s that developed an issue. Any suggestions on who he might be able to contact at Mesa @agedhorse? It seems that a relay failed in my amp (relay contacts stuck together, likely due to a faulty transistor) and the speaker output is now muted. Sadly the issue also resulted in a blown set of power tubes, which were almost new. Not nice.
  3. Enjoy it! There is a really nice full demo video here:
  4. Sure, I could probably do that but really depends on where the amp needs to go. Would have to be UK only.
  5. Great compressor! I use one of these... GLWTS!
  6. I've always wanted to try one of these... maybe if my Legacy 800 sells I do really enjoy a tube preamp, and love my GK MB Fusion. GLWTS!
  7. Thanks for your interest, but I'm still looking for something closer to £500 for this one. I have to double-check, but I'm pretty sure that my Legacy 800 Speak-on jacks accept the 4-pole cables (but obviously still only uses two of the poles). The more recent Legacy heads can't accept anything but 2-pole---the 4-pole cables just don't fit in the jacks! Anyway, I'm not sure if this makes a difference to anyone... might save someone from having to buy new cables though.
  8. Yeah, looks like Polar has them on eBay for that price. That's great deal for a new head!
  9. He's the other Strategy 888 with that "Pull to boost" gain knob... connected to my Mesa Vintage Powerhouse 4x10" and 1x15" cabs
  10. Mesa stopped making them around 2018... had only been produced for ~5 years. Later year models have a "pull gain knob to boost" feature, I have one of each. Not cheap to re-valve... and the current valve crisis doesn't help either but I did manage to pick up some spares recently.
  11. I'm not desperate to sell... if you can get a new 800 Watt model for £549, that sounds like a great deal.
  12. Yes Fretless Fiend, the 800 Watt GK Legacy is still for sale!
  13. Hi is the Amp still for sale?

      Yes, still for sale... but I'm rather firm on the listing price.  Thanks!
